Well, here's your precious princess

A new friend in the ward took pictures of my sweet Danny! She (Fatima) claims that she was just playing with the camera but I feel like these captured my little boy so well she must have be a wizard.  Isn't Danny adorable? He is the sweetest little boy, and I am beyond grateful to have him! I can't believe that he's 2.5. Mostly he seems old to me when he points out numbers and letters. We've been working on that for so long but I'm still surprised when he gets them right. 
I've been trying really hard to spend an hour each day in his playroom with him with no distractions! Just me and him, I don't even check pinterest! I know that sounds lame but sometimes playing with him is really hard! Especially when I have a mental checklist of everything that needs to get done! 
Anyways.... a few things about Danny at this stage. First off, he's a huge fan of the Toy Story franchise, he likes all three movies, though I do think that the second is his favorite. Who knows. He no longer says "opati" he says "opatus". His favorite words seem to be "gimme" (get me! As in chase me around the house) and "some" ( can I have some of whatever you're eating). He also really likes dinosaurs (di do do's). He says "shoot" a lot, whenever he's frustrated or some type of small tragedy happens. He is crazy empathetic and feels bad whenever he hears or see's a baby crying.  He is quick to tell us when something makes him sad (which is whenever we don't give in to his toddler demands, such as candy). All in all he's a great kid and we are lucky to call him ours! 

Speaking of kids, we got Samuels crib in the mail yesterday! Oh, yes we settled on the name Samuel. It was really between Joseph and Michael, but Wyatt suggested Samuel, another biblical name. The more we said it the more we liked it. So there you have it! I can't wait to hold a newborn! They are so special... though I'm not at all excited about the waking up at nights part... ba hum bug. Or the recovery from having a baby. My body was wrecked with Danny, we won't even go into the details! But whatever, it was worth it! 

Life is going really well and I'm really happy about it. My ears have been pretty darn happy, we're all healthy and safe. Our house is beautiful and new and we have neat stuff. So life right now is pure bliss. #spoiled. #blessedaf . Wyatt started his new schedule and surprisingly we love it. It's nice for him to sleep in a little, we like spending mornings together. I also feel like his new schedule gives me more time to get housework done. Honestly, I've been SO domestic since we got here! I cook and clean. I'm proud to say that Wyatt comes home to a clean house and a dinner on the table 3/5 days of the weekday. I know 3/5 isn't a huge deal but it is to me! I totally get ready too, take a shower, do my hair. Basically I'm legit right now. I'm sure it will all fall apart when we have the next baby, but for now I'm doing pretty darn good! 

We've been reading scriptures with Danny every night and saying family prayers. We even had our first FHE this past week. #bliss Haha! I need to add we took Danny to the rainforest cafe this last weekend and it was pretty cute. He was terrified. But then he warmed up to it and he really liked it! We also bought him some crocs (freaking expensive) because Danny refuses to wear anything that isn't comfortable.... ugh. such ugly shoes. I always thought I'd be a chill mom who is cool with her kids being whatever they wanted but I never fathomed one of my children liking crocs. ew. I was trying so hard to get him to pick a more... aesthetically pleasing shoe but he was hellbent on the crocs. When it suddenly dawned on me that this is what I was trying to avoid! I wanted to be the cool chill mom who lets her kids wear what they like and be themselves! Yet here I was trying to force him into picking another shoe. Moral of the story? Danny likes comfort and I should be good with that, so I am. Also, since he's been wearing them I find myself wanting a pair myself. omg. 



PS. I found this post on tumblr a while ago and it was hilarious! I still laugh about it every time I watch sleeping beauty!! I couldn't find the original post, sadly! *sigh* UPDATE I FOUND IT!
