More pics

Since I'm on a roll, I decided to keep posting to my blog (even though it is 1 am). I just can't seem to manage getting a lot done during the day (can we say..."Daniel"?), so I usually stay up late and do things (like post to my blog, clean, read, or whatever) after D goes to bed. Well, I love pictures and so here are some more of my favorites taken in June.

I love this one because he's really concentrating on sweeping with that broom (see his tongue sticking out?).

Most evenings after we finish supper, Phillip will take Daniel to the park nearby. Daniel loves to swing and climb around on the playground slides. It's hard for me to believe that he's only 15 months and he can already climb up the stairs and then slide down the slide all by himself!

Throughout the week, I try to go pick up Phillip from work and take him out for lunch. We usually go to Wilson park near the university so Daniel can play while we eat lunch. These pics are from Wilson...

Here Daniel is pointing at the sky because he hears an airplane. He loves to watch them fly by and he always exclaims "Oh, wow!" over and over. It's very cute!

Here are some of the fun things Daniel is doing now at 15 months: increasing his vocabulary (but not by much; he's more of a "doer" than a talker), playing at the park, swimming, taking baths, eating popsicles (at Grandma's), going for drives (still the best way to get him to sleep), running (which he's getting better at though he has 2 scraped up knees right now), playing in Pa-paw's truck bed, playing "swords" with sticks, getting into mud puddles (ahh!), giving me kisses (yes!), watching Robin Hood, and visiting family.

Here are some things we are working on: getting him to drink cow's milk (and getting him weaned completely), "expanding" his taste buds, sharing toys with Catalina, not getting frustrated easily (he's not very patient), sleeping through the night, getting him interested in books (he can't sit still long enough for me to read him one), and beginning to train him to obey. :) He's also currently working on getting his 1st year molars. It has been very painful for him so he's been very cranky the last few weeks!!

The 4th of July

We went to the church picnic out at Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park this year. It was lots of fun although it was very humid! We got a few cute pics of Daniel and Catalina that I thought I'd share. In the evening, we had a cookout at my family's (Josh was in town for the weekend) and shot off fireworks. Daniel wasn't quite as scared this year of the fireworks but Catalina was!

Catalina at the Farm

I took these pictures of Catalina last week when my mom, my sister and I went to visit my Grandad and Grandma (mom's side). Anyway, I thought these pics of her climbing the fence were absolutely adorable!

Summer Fun

What a good lookin' kid! :)

Daniel's favorite thing to do this summer (besides playing at the park and at Chuck E. Cheese) is swimming. This is his first summer to be able to really enjoy playing in the water since last year he was only a few months old. He could probably play in the water for hours!

Whoops! Copper is drinking the swimming water...Oh well!
