Daniel


His name really isn't Daniel, it's James. We will never do that again, name a kid something we don't call him, or call a kid something we didn't name him.
James Daniel was born on this day 18 years ago. He weighed 10 pounds 2 ounces. He was born in Dallas and my midwife was Barbara Cook. The best midwife in the world.
I'm trying to think of one word to describe Daniel and the only thing that comes to mind is DRIVEN. Now, on top being driven for 18 years, he can now drive alone. Yes, we waited a while to let him get his license, no harm was done.........but that's all over now. He will go to TDOT this morning with his dad and get what he's been waiting for, for a long time. It's a pretty nice thing to have a kid that is excited about something like that for his birthday as opposed to what most kids want to do when they turn 18.
It has been a great 18 years having Daniel as our son. I'll really miss him when he moves next door...........

He's already passed all the tests, he was just waiting to turn 18. He took an official NON home-school (!) class to do it. He just has to show the papers today and then he will start owing insurance, big time.

Happy Birthday, Daniel! Our boys go by their middle names also. Something we've regreted as they grow older. Oh well, lesson learned. Hope you've had a great birthday. I always enjoy the crazy pictures your mom posts of you. You seem to be a great kid!

Oh we call our second son by his middle name. He is named after Bills dad, and Bills dad too goes by his middle name(and our son is the 4th) older brother Bill's brother never had a son so asked bill to name one for Grandpa!!

Do we miss the first name?? I don't know? But having two Bill's has been interesting, as we named oldest after Bill...

I opened a bank statement and about died...31 cents! Then I looked at the date the account was opened...lol

Anyhow did you use midwife for all the deliveries???Oh and I had a 3.3lb baby, a 4.5lb baby and 2 around 6.5...10 pounds wow!!!!!!!
oh sorry I cannot stay logged in...

jen-pen,
we had all 6 with a midwife.......Daniel was our biggest, he beat Caleb by one ounce, but Caleb had his hand on his forehead, so add 5 pounds for that!

Where ever James Daniel may go he can run but he can't hide! I will stay true to form and harass him all the way. Why do I harass him, because he is there! and......he is so fun to harass. and......I like to harass. and the older they get the funner they are to harass.....

Happy birthday Daniel and I will never forget that it was on your eighteenth birthday that you hit your first curb driving and that you made a mess when you served yourself up an icee at Buckees.

See......he is so fun to harass.

Your a good boy. Stay true, do your duty, refuse to compromise convictions, have convictions, never give up!

Michele, I love how you say you'll never name another kid something you won't call them; hope springs eternal, huh? I've named many babies the last few years too; all the while admitting I'll probably never give birth again! Your James Daniel is a credit to his folks!
