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 —
or a young toddler —
or a somewhat older toddler:
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) —
and a book from me (as well as the Tonka truck I got him — not pictured):
Even though he’s not as big as his seven-year old cousin,
— 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!
