Fathers Day 2010

Wow, what a day.  Woke up at 6 this morning with Daniel and made breakfast for daddy around 8:30.  It was a busy day in the Kandell household.  Mommy had a yoga client at 11:00 then mommy, daddy and Daniel went to Fountain Square in the middle of downtown Cincinnati.  Mommy enjoyed yoga outdoors with fellow awesome peacemakers, and yogis.  I am grateful to have such a powerful and fantastic circle of friends in my life.  

While I was basking in the warmth of the practice...and baking...literaly, Brian and Daniel sat down, father and son for some ice cream from Graeters.  While we were outdoors we walked around the square and even splashed around in the fountain.  Our evening ended with dinner at Quaker Steak where Daniel got to order a grilled cheese and applesauce off the kids was his first time eating a full restaurant meal.  He did great, made his way through all of his applesauce, 4 mum mum crackers, and about 3/4 of his grilled cheese!  

As we rounded the last turn for home Daniel fell asleep, and for the first time in his short life he slept through the process of changing diaper, clothes and brushing his teeth.  Even when he was a few weeks old, he always woke up when we started changing him.  My little angel had a wonderful, but exhausting day; he is sleeping peacefully and I'm sure having the sweetest of dreams.  It was a perfect Fathers Day, and I am so in love with my husband and son.  I hope all the fathers out there had as wonderful a day as we did.

I am not only including pics from today, but also from my cousin Eric and his wife Allison's wedding on 6/19/2010

First Big Boo boo

Wow, what a week we have had.  Last weekend was awesome; Daniel, Brian and I spent the weekend at Winton Woods Park.  We played on the slides at the playground, went to the water park, and even walked around Parky's Farm.  This really is a wonderful, and inexpensive way to spend a weekend.  

After such a great weekend I decided to take Daniel to the park on Tuesday to meet up with another mommy from church along with her two little ladies.  We were having such a good time sliding and playing hide and seek with th girls, but this fun was short lived when Daniel and I were sliding and his poor little foot slid under mommy...ouch, big boo boo.

I decided to give it a few hours to see if Daniel was going to just walk it off, check for bruising and make a long story short, we went to Children's twice this week in three days time and had x-rays done twice.  Thank the lord he is walking tonight and it is just a strain.  Made for an interesting week for all of us.  

Daniel is practicing feeding himself...he does a very good job, he is such a smart little boy.
