Shout Out

This last week has been the week of David's birthday. It started last Saturday when we all went to KC to celebrate with my side of the family. Then we had dinner parties here and there with Jason's side.

On Thursday David received a large box from Uncle Grant and Aunt Tina. As he pulled out the first box and started to open it he began to squeal and scream at such a high pitch the dolphins across the globe could hear him.


His face began to turn blue from lack of air as he hyperventalated, jumped up and down, and vibrated.

In an effort to calm the storm I told him to open up the other package while I tried to liberate Dora and Boots from their packaging. That distraction only lasted until he pulled off the paper and discovered another Dora play set.

He screamed, laughed, and jumped up and down in shear pleasure for 30min. Then we ran upstairs to show Nina the new treasures.

Since that day Dora the bath doll has slept with David, dined with David, and splashed with David in the tub. Getting him to leave the house without her is a challenge at times though.

Jason said I should have video taped the entire thing, or at least called Grant while David was opening the gifts, but it all happened so fast I didn't have a chance.

Besides, David was so happy and so loud I figured Grant and Tina could hear how happy he was all the way in Seattle.

On behalf of the little guy I would like to thank everyone for all the wonderful gifts.
