2007 = Play

Daniel is now 8 1/2 months old. The last time we weighed him, two months ago, he was 24 lbs. We're guessing he's about 26 or 27 lbs but one of our friends guessed 29 lbs. He is a really big baby. People think he's 12 - 15 months until they realize he isn't crawling or walking yet. (We're savoring the last moments of him just sitting on a blanket.)

He's been spending more time at the park on the swings and now in the sand. He loves watching the other kids and the dogs. Now he needs a little bucket and shovel.

Daniel just started swim lessons. He loves being in the water and hasn't seemed afraid of being in the big pool. Piers and I have enjoyed the fun of being in the pool with him, squeezing his chubby parts while he kicks and splashes. Piers is much more adventurous with him, dunking him under the water from time to time and bouncing him up and down. Daniel loves all of it.
