23 Months Old...

Our mister Daniel Benjamin is getting awfully close to turning two, and if I didn't know any better, I'd say he knows it.  His tantrums and fits have become increasingly more dramatic with each passing day, but the sweetness he holds within him has melted our hearts.  Here is what Daniel's 23rd month consisted of!
