Dane and Grandpa taking a break from moving...
The Director from the new daycare that Dane is attending wrote us a quick e-mail to let us know how Dane's first day was. She was super positive and sweet... She jokingly said that Dane is a "housewrecker". If it's on a shelf it has to come down! I don't really know what she is talking about!!! LOL
I know that we have said it before... But we have a good pup. His patience is incredible and I think it is only going to get tested more as time goes on. Dane LOVES him and wants to be close. His new thing is crawling up and laying on Bones.
He loves his pup!

I don't think he could fit much more in his mouth!!!
Since I had to go to a work meeting, we didn't get a chance to open presents last night, so Dane got to open them tonight! He really did enjoy playing with all the wrapping, and then actually got to the goodies inside!
He got some really cool blocks that he can stack and play with
What a great book with pop-up animals! Thanks Uncle Sam, Aunt Shannon, Porter, and Baby!
Thank you so much to everyone for all the calls, cards, and well wishes! Dane had a great 3 days, and we did too! We have such great family!

Here is a picture that I took yesterday on Dane's birthday. He was not feeling well (another cold) and was kind of cranky... So, I decided that it was time to pull out all the good comforting things in his life. So, he got his binky (which he really has only been using at night) and his lovey (thanks again Olivia for sharing such a great blanket!) It's amazing the difference the little things can make... Look how happy he is!
Feeling the love!!!
Here is Dane with his brand new dump truck... so much fun! Thank you so much Grandma and Grandpa!

In another bowl beat the butter and molasses.
Add in eggs, beat until combined.
Add in bananas, sour cream and vanilla, carrot, and walnuts; beat until blended.
Add in the flour mixture; beat at low speed just until moistened.
Spoon the batter into prepared muffin tin.

After lunch Dane was so good... He just played in the living room by himself for over an hour. I had time to put a second coat of paint on all the cupboards! (he has another tooth coming in, hence the drool wetting his front!!!) Here he is raiding the diaper bag!
This house also has stairs! Oh the joy!!! Dane loves the stairs and goes up and then comes down... over and over again! He has learned how to do it pretty well, but coming down he sometimes gets all tangled and I have to help him! But, he sure enjoys it!
Brock came over and helped out for a little while. He was a great helper for Clint!Here we are after a long day! All tuckered out!
I'm sorry I haven't been great about updating lately, but we are going pretty hard. Between work, Dane, trying to get the one house set up to move out of, and all the work on the new house, there isn't a whole lot of extra time! But, things are going really well and Clint and I are having a really good time. Dane is so much fun as well. He is consistently saying mama and dada. Not with total intent, but he is really starting to get the idea. He also has started to assert his little will... and is quite stubborn! (I think he gets that from Grandpa Fred! lol)
Dane is probably not to far from walking. He started letting go of us and balancing for a moment before he realizes what he is doing and falls! No steps all by himself yet, but he walks around everything like crazy! I'm actually not in too much of a hurry. I chase him enough as it is, but right now I can beat him there... If he's running too I may not be so lucky!!!
Well, we are ready to hit another week! Tomorrow it is work for us and Dane goes to see the ladies at daycare. Clint is switching to days though, so that is super nice. We will get to eat dinner together and such!
We hope everyone has a great week!
