You sleep like a champ, and have for quite a while now. We put you to bed around 8pm, and you stay asleep until just about 7am, give or take an hour (stupid daylight savings time.) You wake up in a great mood almost every day, and you are the smiliest boy I've ever known. You weren't overly snuggly for the first nine months of your life, since you were always in a hurry to do something. But now you lay your head on our shoulders when you're sleepy and you love to lay down on me for story time. You can sit and play by yourself for half an hour these days, inspecting every inch of a toy or a book. You laugh hysterically at the cats, and sometimes at Mama and me. You are just a good little boy, and we're lucky that you're ours. In the next month or so, you'll experience your first Christmas -- exceptions allowed for last year when you were a few days old, and your eyes couldn't focus. I'm excited to see you open presents, and I'm really excited to see you devour your first birthday cake.
And really, we can't wait to watch you do all the remaining firsts too. You're our favorite, Danny.
