Thursday was Dane’s 3 Week Birthday!

Saturday, March 26th, 2011
We didn’t celebrate, via your average toddler party, complete with clowns, bouncy castles, and face painting.  Rather, we contemplated our first weeks with the little guy and how our lives have changed positively forever.

At this point, as parents, as many of you with children already know, every nuance is taken in, with awe filled hearts observing daily life of our son.  I can remember dear friends explaining the joys that come with parenthood, all pailing in comparison to the actual experiences.

Alas, I could ramble on for days about the joys of parenthood and Baby Dane.   But I will, instead, share many of the firsts that have accompanied Dane’s opening three weeks.  Recently Dane went on his first walk, experienced his first St. Patrick’s Day, met his cousins, and was read the first of many books by his cousin Ryan.  Enjoy.

You probably didn't know that Dane was honing his Ninja skills.

Please be patient, as we are working to enhance your blog viewing experience.

EDIT:  It seems that the problem may have been solved.  However, if you are to encounter technical difficulties, gently kick the side of your computer!

Days With Dane

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

On this episode of Dane TV… It sure seems like this is the case. We are enjoying, very much, the act of just sitting around and watching our little guy. He’s so very animated and has so many faces that can cause us to laugh hysterically or bring us to tears.

Enough of all of these words. Let’s get to some cuteness.

Another nap Dane?

Swaddled with LOVE!

Grammy Loves Me!

Hurry! Get the keys and let's sneak out!

This guy is too cute!

I'm ready for my close-up.

Monkey Business!

No more monkeying around!

Look up here.

Does this guy look comfortable?

He doesn't often drink beer, but when he does, it's Dos Equis.

This one is just to scare you!

Damn, I'm Smooth!!!

Dane’s Home!

Thursday, March 10th, 2011
Below you will find a sort of, organized, unorganized look at Dane’s first 5 days. We need a bit more time to go through everything and edit it down. I’m starting to wish I would have taken more still shots, but didn’t want to be transported out of the moment by a lapse in focus.

Does that make sense?

Little Dane Taylor Jackson entered the planet Earth as a human on March 3, 2011 at 10:19 am. He immediately asked how the surf was!
