Happy Birthday Danny!

Daniel John - born March 28th 1985 - 8lbs, 30zs  - a blond haired, blue eyed, beautiful baby BOY!!  We could not wait to find out if it was a BOY...Dave had tried to auction off our third girl at a reverse raffle 2 months earlier!!  We wanted a boy so badly.  We had no idea back then, no ultrasounds to tell you the sex of your baby...we waited, and waited.  Dan was about 2 1/2 weeks late.  It was a Thursday night and Dave was ready to head out for his bowling league when I said --Not so fast...the baby is coming...RIGHT NOW!!  Labor started at 9:30 p.m.  Daniel John was born at 10:00 p.m.  It was so fast,  so exciting and we were so surprised to see this little baby boy who looked like he was dipped in flour!  So blond and fair, such white snowy peach fuzz everywhere on his body!  We loved him instantly!  I have never seen Dave so thrilled , so happy, really so very proud!    Dave ran some errands the next day and when he returned to the hospital he had this card and roses.  I just loved his response to the birth of his first son.   Dan has been fun to have around.  From the days of mother/son dances at Avon Oaks, days of crying about going to school (I just want to be home with my mom- he would say!), to grade school baseball, high school-college hockey, and everything in between  I have LOVED this boy.
I cannot wait to see the rest of what is in store for Danny.
           Happy Birthday Danny... We could not love you more!   Have a great Day!
