Stop the presses!! The headline today has to be changed to reflect what an incredibly exciting and important day it is. It’s my baby’s 16th birthday!!!!
Yes, 16 years ago today Daniel came into this world and has kept everyone smiling ever since. As a baby, Daniel always had a smile on his face, sometimes devilish and sometimes angelic, but he never failed to keep us entertained. He would look around at the world with big round eyes that more often than not earned him the nickname “bright eyes” and figure out something to get into, or as he got older ways to aggravate his older brother or make us all laugh until we had tears running down our faces. His latest is doing imitations of accents from around the world, and he is incredible at it!
His accomplishments already are amazing, the most memorable being when he won first place for our entire county in public speaking. That was an extremely proud moment for us!! But let me tell you, nothing will ever surpass his dancing skills which will become apparent as you watch the following video LOL. Daniel was about 7 years old at the time, and you will see that it was quite clear that he loved being the centre of attention. Now, he has matured and has become quite the amazing young man who I know will do incredible things in his life, but his family and friends will often revisit this video on my Facebook page to have a good laugh at the cute little sexy dancer that he was.
Enjoy the video, and Daniel I wish you the best birthday ever. We love you “this much”, and you know how much that is :)!!
Teeeheeee…. adorable!!!! 😀 **
Yes, I think so too :). Thanks!!
That is hysterical! Hope he has a great day!
Oh, I’m sure he will. His friends have a surprise organized for him that he knows nothing about!!
happy birthday to Daniel (does he know you did this mom?–and my kids think I embarrass them –this is too funny)
Thanks and yes he knows all about it. I had him “approve” it the other night. He’s a good sport with an excellent sense of humour, so he was fine with it. I’ve had this video on Facebook for years, and many of his friends are also my friends on Facebook, so they have all watched it over and over again :).
boy you did your due diligence and he is a really great kid–but that should not surprise me from the type of mom he has
Awww, that is so sweet! Thank you for making my day :). As I know you will understand, we all need reassurance sometimes that we are doing a good job, don’t we?
I hope that you can show this on big screen at his wedding one day… it will go down so well… your baby is 16… I wish mine was… he’s 35… damn I’m getting old…
What a great idea!! Mwah ha ha – an evil plan has been hatched! By the way, age means nothing. Remember the old saying – you’re not getting older, you’re getting better
I heard a good one the other day at the memorial service when one friend mentioned to another that his stomach is getting big… he answered that his brain is learning so much he can’t store any more info up there, so he’s storing it in his stomach area..
Age is all relative.. my mind says I’m still 21 but when I try to catch up to the younger women they can now all out run me…
My hubby is always bugging me about the weight I have been gaining in the last few years, so I am definitely going to use that excuse on him tonight. I love it!!! As for your last part about the younger women, I almost spewed out my lunch I was laughing so hard. I now have this visual in my mind of you chasing a bunch of younger women yelling, “Wait up girls, I’m only 21, really!!” LOL
Happy Birthday to Daniel. Great video. I have 2 boys myself and they’re alot of fun and always keep me on my toes.
They are a lot of fun, and I think they have been a great deal easier to handle through the teen years than girls would have been LOL. Thanks Edith :).
Wow… what else can we say really…. hey did you take the portrait shot?
LOL!!! No, I wish I had taken the portrait shot. That was his school picture from last year :).
What a wonderful memory, Cindy! He (and all of you) will certainly continue to treasure it through the years!
We definitely will!! It doesn’t matter how many times I watch it, it always makes me smile :).
OK, what kind of movies is he watching? This looks like “Chippendale” dancing – or did you let him watch the Full Monty?
Hey, maybe that’s how he could start making money for college!!!! LOL I don’t know where he got it from – maybe music videos. My mom challenged him last night though. She wants to have him recreate the video and see if he can still dance the same way LOL!!! Now that would be funny :).
I’d love to see him re-create the dance – he probably could not do it now!
Oh, don’t be too sure. He’s still pretty crazy – I think he could do it :). The question is, would he?
Ah, tell him happy belated birthday from me. You must be proud!
Yes I am – very!! 🙂
Oh, and Daniel says thank you 🙂
Watch out Jim Cary, or is that Barak Obama? 😉 Happy B-day, David, hope you have an amazing year!!!! 🙂
Oh darn, sorry, sorry, DANIEL!!!! Have no idea why the wrong name slipped in there… *embarrassed blush*…
LOL!!! Thanks, I will pass on the birthday wishes :).
