A Book and a Bike

The first day of Christmas has come and gone, and I think this is the first Christmas that Daniel may actually remember.

For his previous three Christmases happened when he was either a very small infant —

A fellow colleague's daughter holding Daniel at the office Christmas party, 2007.

or a young toddler —

Playing Wii Rock Band with Lolo and Lola (the grandparents), Christmas 2008.

or a somewhat older toddler:

Considering one of his Christmas gifts of 2009.

This time around, he’s actually a KID, as demonstrated by the two “big” kid gifts he got for Christmas 2010:

a bike from his Auntie Cee (my youngest sister) —

Sitting on the bike, while holding the radio-controlled car.

and a book from me (as well as the Tonka truck I got him — not pictured):

"I'm Superman!" says the little guy.

Even though he’s not as big as his seven-year old cousin,

The grandparents have a big TV.

— Daniel’s very much heading towards full-blown I AM KID — HEAR ME ROAR.  Although he can’t quite steer his trike yet (so there’s time to assemble that bike) and can’t read quite yet (although he knows his letters and follows the pictures in the comic), I have no doubt that, come Christmas 2011, he’ll be well on his way to being able to do both.

Year 2011 in less than a week now.  HOW THE HECK DID THAT HAPPEN?  🙂

May everyone have a happy rest of the days of Christmas and a Happy New Year!

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.
