Becoming a Toddler

Even though Daniel’s first birthday was only a week ago, he has already outgrown his 12 months clothes and is now wearing clothes labeled “18 months”. They’re loose, not in a “It’s too big” way but in a “It’s nice and comfy now, which he’ll fill out as the months go by” way.

He’s in transition now — not exactly an infant anymore, but not a toddler either. However, the way he plays with his toys, babbles, walks, and noshes on Gerber Puffs point towards the toddler that he will rapidly become.

His teeth are finally starting to push against his gums — to his intense displeasure — and he’s getting longer and longer. It amazes me just how much he’s grown in just one year; he amazes me every day.

Then:

Daniel the Newborn

And now:

Daniel the One Year Old

(Okay, in the above picture, that T-shirt is *way* too loose — it’s a 2T, which was all that was left after he did deep horking last week on his 18mo shirts, which were in the wash.)

If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.

    Daniel is such a beautiful boy. I love seeing then and now pictures!

    It is absolutely amazing to me how little ones can imitate their parents’ expressions, voice, and even thought patterns. Each child has a different interpretation, but it is absolutely fascinating to watch it unfold.

    God bless y’all 🙂

    He sure has Jonathon’s eyes!

    BTW, we will be in town this weekend for the UD reunion (15 year–ACK!). We might try to swing by sometime.
