We also got Daniel a swing this weekend and have started to "raid" our landlord's yard with kid toys. Again, a bit apprehensive at first, Daniel did get into the "swing" of things and enjoyed the ride....
And so it has happened...we finally started to baby-proof the house. The gates are up since Daniel thinks it's a game to run up the stairs and laughs at us as we pull him off the stairs. Guess what goes around really does come around since I used to laugh at my mother when she pulled me off things. Cabinet locks are next. What a fun way to spend a Sunday.
As for Daniel, I guess he knows the best way to spend a lazy, hazy day of summer....
Until next time.......

Special thanks must go out to Jeff, Mike, Claire, Vicky, Rose, Brooks, Barbara, Patricia, D, Evelyn, Angie, Anne, Kyala, Uncle Tommy, my parents, Mike's Mom and Jack, Dave, Jess, Cooper, and Pia for all their hard work behind the scenes. I also must thank Eve because without all her hard work organizing the outing it never would have gone off so smoothly and been so successful. Nice Job Eve!!!
Also, thank you to everyone who was a sponsor and to everyone who donated a gift to the raffle. We had over 25 door prizes and 30 raffle prizes. Nicely done!!! Photos of the outing will be posted shortly on http://www.danielsvoice.org/ under the tab "Golf Outing" in the "Gallery" section. Please take a look.
Daniel did fabulously and showed off his new walking skills. He got his first ride on a golf cart and seemed to enjoy it very much. All and all he was a really trooper! He also reached another milestone on Saturday when we got home - He learned to climb our stairs. No hesitation in the least. He just placed one foot on the bottom step and up he went. This child never seems to stop amazing me.
Thanks again!!! Happy Summer!!

The other big news is that Daniel is Mike's son since he decided to enjoy some pizza while we were on our way to Cincinnati. Watch....
We are looking forward to this weekend's golf outing in honor of Daniel. We have 104 golfers registered and everything is falling into place. Mike's mom is coming in this week and we are looking forward to her visit.
Enjoy your week!!!

And if this was not a big milestone, Daniel also climbed out of his portable crib this evening. Though Mike conned him a bit to do it, he did. Yes, our lives as we know it is over. Oh well and in all honesty after the last year we had we couldn't be happier!!
Enjoy your Thursday!!!

He also enjoyed playing in K.C.'s waterbowl the other night. All I can say is "TROUBLE".......
Daniel is scheduled for another scope in Ciny on Monday, June 16th so we will be leaving next weekend for a "quick" trip. Hopefully all will go well and we will be able to get rid of all of Daniel's trach equipment and supplies. Keep your fingers crossed.
The Daniel's Voice Golf Tournament is turning out to be a HUGE success!!! We have almost 100 golfer registered to play and everything but one sponsorship is sold out! Now we just have to pray for a sunny day on June 21st!!
Enjoy your Monday!!

During their visit we went to the Bronx Zoo. (Go on Wednesday since it is technically free - you just have to make a donation. Leave it to Mike to get all nine of us in for $5.00. Talk about a good deal!) Somehow I don't remember the Zoo being as huge as it was and having the ability to get so close to the animals. (People included.) All and all, a very good day.
And only in the city do you see someone walking their pet pigs....
