Ok so for all of you who have been saying "Is she ever going to give us an update" well here you go. I am sorry for not keeping you all updated on the past few months. But life has been a little hectic!! I will do my best to update you all and you can fill in any blanks that you might think of.
Back at the end of January I started to take care of some little girls in my ward. Life with our family went from 3 to 5 in a matter of days. Their mother was going through a divorce and some other emotional hardship. So the girls being 3 and 7 were quite the handful. We would watch them anywhere from 45-60 hours a week. I found myself not being able to do as much as hold Daniel. It was always clean this, and fix that, put that back, stay out of there. So due to the lack of time that I could spend taking care of Daniel we chose not to watch them any longer. So it has been about two weeks and ever since then we have been doing much better.
So on to Daniel, he now weighs around 20lb and is about 27inch tall. He loves to play and be outside. We have a deck off the front of our apartment and we just lay blankets down and put a gate up and he will play out there all day if I would let him, and if it weren’t for those horrible nape things… Daniel also loves water. I don’t think I really have to mop the floor too often because he takes care of it with his baths.... We are so excited and can’t wait to take him swimming I think that he might be nervous at first but who knows with this kid! He has also learned how to climb on things. Including the couch, his recent discovery STAIRS!! I really think he is part monkey and one of these days he is going to wake up and have a tail!!.. No really it is fun to watch him learn and grow. I am sad to say that he really is not a baby anymore, but when I say that I just think of all the fun things that we are learning together and the little boy that he has become!! We see more and more of his personality every day, he is so much like his daddy.
So Saturday we celebrated Daniels first birthday. Time really goes by fast and I hope that I will be able to keep up with this little guy as he learns more and more about the world around him. But needless to say his party was a great success. After a couple of baths we peeled our little monster out from under all of the frosting. I will post some pictures as soon as we are able to get them off of our camera. But for now this will have to do. I hope that I will be able to keep you all updated on us a little better than I have been. But for now we will just have to see. We Love all of you guys and hope that you all have a great week.
Love the McGee’s
