guess who decided it was time to stand up?!!!

There he is - this past weekend - standing up!!!!
He was so impressed with himself he kept standing - and then falling on his butt and getting right back up.

It's only about a 2 second stand - his Physical therapist thinks he will be standing on his own by his birthday....3 weeks from now.

he's doing so so great. We are of course proud parents.

In other news - the countdown to his first birthday begins!
I'm testing out cupcake recipes, making a birthday banner out of clothing that he wore this year that no longer fits him, making a book out of this blog, creating a slideshow of photos from this blog and planning out what we will do on his birthday.
So far my ideas are:
Danny's Farm
Photo booth
And just hugging, kissing, laughing, loving - you know...the usual!

We are having TWO birthday parties. One is for his friends at playgroup and their parents ( our friends ), and the other is for family.
I'm sure those of you who know me aren't surprised by the fact that there will be lots of parties going on here!
But on his actual birthday Jerry and I plan to spend the day alone with him and pick a few adventures if it's not raining.

I cannot believe he is almost ONE already......!!!!!!!!
I might pass out.
