You may be thinking, "Didn't she just have a Happy Birthday post for one of her other kids?" Well, you're right! Four of my kids birthdays are literally back to back, starting in May!
My youngest son, Daniel (or Danny) is turning 7 today!! Oh my..where do I begin? He's 15 months older than Veronica but they seem closer than that in age! It's true when they say girls mature faster! LOL! Here he is around 2 1/2!!
His personality is so complex! He is independent, fearless, soft spoken, strong willed, extremely sensitive, and just so darn C.U.T.E!!! He's one of those kids who can literally entertain himself. Give him one or two of his favorite action figures and he can literally be in his own world (sound effects and all)!! He's not afraid to try new foods (believe me..I was literally shocked when he tried sardines out of a can), and he loves to help me when he can..well almost..lol!
He totally looks up to Eli (my 9 year old) and I noticed that he wants to do whatever he's doing, and go wherever he goes. It's such a blessing to see their bond strengthening as they get older.
He has a smile that can light up a room, and he can hold his own with the "big boys." It's so funny because the high school boys and some of our friends get a total kick playing with Danny. And I'm not talking easy play! He's a rough houser, and he can totally take what he dishes out. LOL, everyone says the same thing about him. They say, "Man, Danny's strong!" So, I think that's why they know they can kick it up a notch with him. Of course, they would never hurt him, but I'm sure there would be other parents that would be freaking out! Plus, he has energy galore and he won't stop even if you want to!
So, to you, Danny, I want to wish you a very Happy Birthday! You always make my heart melt with your gentle smile, and your soft voice. You bless me everyday! I would do anything for you! I love you!
