My Son, the Model

Delayed post alert!

Our friend, Jamie Grill,  took pictures of Daniel when he was 9 months old... looking back it was the one month that he didn't really look like himself.. but who cares?  He's damn cute.

Anyhow - we gave Jamie permission to use any images for anything... fast forward over a year and she sends us an email while we are in Mexico after Thanksgiving (sans Daniel) with this link: 

My little baby model!  And, might I comment on the feet behind that cutie?  Yes, those are mine.  V. Exciting!

Chanukah Batman Guy

Chanukah has been super fun so far.  Daniel is way into lighting the candles and opening presents.  

Tonight he got two books from us and a Batman figure from Nanny and Papa (so far they have sent him more gifts than we got him and he has loved them all).  Mind you, Daniel has never seen Batman.  But, he is super into Batman because of a Batman t-shirt with cape that he got for Halloween and his Batman toothbrush.  

Anyhow, he opens the gift and says, "OOOOH, Batman Guy!".   We said "this IS Batman" and he says "Yay! Batman Guy!"

Fast forward to bedtime.  Daniel didn't want to go to sleep and for almost 30 minutes said "Mommy, Batman Guy.  Mommy, Batman Guy!"  I finally gave in and went in there, gave him the Batman Guy and said "Now Go To Sleep".  

Not a peep.

2 hours later, Matt snapped this picture:

Nanny and Papa... great gift!  Happy Chanukah!

A Conversation

Scene:  Putting on PJs

Me:  Daniel, your tushy is a little red
Daniel:  Rash, Mommy!
Me:  I see.  You do have a little rash.
Daniel:  Mommy!  Rash on my nuts!
Me:  Excuse me?
Daniel:  Rash on my NUTS, Mommy!
Me:  Lovely.  Should I put some tushy medicine on?
Daniel:  Yes.  Thanks!
