One Year Older and Cuter Too!

Happy Birthday Little D

I'm glad you are such an easy going kid. And you really are. Unless you aren't(chairs that get in your way certainly get some baby wrath).


I'm glad you are only 1 and don't care that you got a half-frosted (and pathetically at that) cake-bear-thing for your birthday.

Your smile still melts my heart. Every ounce of your tiny little body brings me joy. I look at you and know, we weren't complete without you here.

I love to hear you sing as you putter around the house. You are content to stroll around, checking out the same things you checked out the hour before. I love how you like to carry things when you are walking. Shoes, leapsters, baskets full of toys, household cleaners... You are a little toter and I find it completely adorable.

Today I peeked in at you at the Y and I saw you come barrelling across the room with your still frequently unsteady gait and push a kid half a head taller than you out of the way so you could push the shopping cart. It's not nice to push, but somehow it's funny when a little squidgy midgy like you does it.

Your brother and sister adore you.

You make me think I could have 27 kids. You are very misleading that way.

Happy Birthday Buddy. I've told you that like 57 times today. You have no idea what I'm talking about. But you bounce along to the rhythm of the phrase or song. Yet another thing that's really cute when you are 1, not so cute when you are an adult.

I love you little guy.

Bo and Avee helped with the cake.
































Danyo did not.

"You are content to stroll around, checking out the same things you checked out the hour before."

Happy Birthday Danyo!! I love the letters you write to your kids on their B-Days!! They will have fun looking back and reading them someday!!

I loved all of the pictures of your kids. The one of Danyo and Bo cracked me up!!

Oh, he is so adorable! I haven't seen him since he was teeny tiny! What a great age. I know what you mean about the 27 kids thing. :) Did you hear Andy & Daniela named their baby after you? I'm sure they were thinking of you when they chose the name. :)

I thought that was a gopher.
But whatever.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CUTE LIITLE BABY!!!

Wow.Seems like it was just a couple of months ago that I called you at the hospital.

No Cool Story said...

LIITLE is how cute Mexi people say Little.

But I know you know that.

Tori :) said...

YAY! My boyfriend is one!

S said...

Should he be dating a married woman with lots of kiddo's n a husband that is a cop? Oh wait was that a secret? Happy Birthday little guy, you need to step up the antics big bro and sis get more press than you. But havin a first birthday so grand is a great start. Can't wait to see you in 52 days!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANYO! I need to bring your present over! Your gonna LOVE it!

MommyJ said...

Don't worry. Danyo's crappy cake bear thing was not near as lame as Henry's Happy First Birthday muffin. I know. I'm totally ashamed. But he won't remember, right? After three failed attempts at having a big tadoo with a big cake and all that, with those three children not remembering a single thing... I didn't stress this year. Still I felt a little guilty. Or a lot guilty.

Traci said...

"You're very misleading that way" made me laugh OUT LOUD. And I'm still snickering. That just caught me today, I guess. :)

And "toter" - great word.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Danyo!!! (late, of course...always late...) You are adorable. (And tell your mom - third children just have to push. GOod thing they can make it cute.)

The Clinger's said...

I can't believe our boys are one. I remember one year ago being envious of you having your little guy. Little did I know that I would be following in suite only two days later.

EarthBint said...

does that mean i'll see him in 52 days too?!!
Happy Birthday Danyo, you're too cute for words.

Millie said...

WOW a year???? Happy Birthday Danyo!

I love Bo's shirt. :)

omar said...

NCS beat me to the making fun of the cake. I was going to ask, "so did the groundhog cake see its shadow?"

Happy birthday to Danyo!

Barnecked Lady said...

If only I had been there to help with the cake....lol, jk. Happy B-day big D!!!!

Carrot Jello said...

Happy Birthday.
I can hardly read this without feeling tremendous guilt.
I'd better go make a cake and take some pictures soon. Before he's two.

Breit Mama said...

Did you make the bear thingy cake? It looked suspiciously like those little plastic bear drink cups! I actually think it was a huge improvement over the last attempted birthday cake. Based on those pictures, Danyo did as well! You rock as a mom!

Physcokity said...

Happy Birthday D! I love Bo's "I still live with my parents" shirt hahaha

Rebecca said...

wow.. a year huh..that reminds me I need to have some cheesecake!!! :) Happy one danyo.. and many more!!

Sketchy said...

Oh no!!! You don't know how vicariously I'm living through your babyness. Could you please have another one soon?

Happy Birfday Danyo!

glittersmama said...

Suzanne said...

Happy Birthday Danyo! He is such a sweetie, even when he's trying to eat my food! :D
