Danel Danel Bo Banel.
As many nicknames as we have for Daniel...he has weird faces for us:
While Daniel looks like he is crying and being tortured in some of those photos, I assure you, he was not. This is D's idea of funny. To torture **me**...when all I want is a good photo of my precious boy.
And I wanted a good photo because.....well, Daniel has gone and turned nine. (sigh)
What happened to the 2-year old little imp we just met yesterday?
Ah, yes. That imp is very (very) much still there - every bit the imp he was on that day long ago...just a little taller now.
It may be hard to tell from these pictures, but D is almost always smiling and/or laughing. You may be able to get a few serious words out of him, but not often. But if you do get some serious words from him, they will invariably have something to do with the very grave subjects of Ninjago or Star Wars. Or maybe Chima.
Daniel is also always ready to talk about how fast he is...and how big his muscles are...and how high he can climb.
And you know what, Daniel?
We think you are the best. And we are so grateful to the Lord that we get to be the parents of the biggest/best/fastest Danel D. We love you, buddy!
