Halloween/Birthday Party

Yesterday was a beautiful day--perfect for a birthday AND a holiday (Mommy's favorite!). Dakin had a great birthday, and so I thought I'd show you how his day went.


No, I don't want to wake up!

Getting dressed in Handy Manny costume! I would also like to point out that he is using both of his arms in this pic--he has regained the ability to bring up his right arm, something we haven't seen him do in over a year!
Breathing treatment (the vest jiggles him, that's why the pic is blurry).After some time in the stander and breakfast, time for up in the 'brrm brrm'--Dakin's favorite thing!Naptime already?See? I told you! Beautiful day. Here's Dakin in full Handy Manny regalia. Here's the cake Mommy slaved over. Yes, it's Rocket from Little Einsteins. (My hands are still partially pink from the food dye!)Playing with new toy from nurse Jane--Dakin hits a button and the tools dance up and down.Later on, after another breathing treatment and more eating, here's Nurse Brenda and Dakin's new Handy Manny book! It has tools to use to help Manny build something...can't remember what now. Night night. Dada usually brings him in.
No trick or treating for us this year--maybe next year. Still, it was a great birthday--he was sung to on multiple occasions and got tons of gifts. Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes!

Happy Birthday Dakin!!!! While coming off a ride @ Disney this week, I saw a Leo Doll and if I had the money, I would have bought it and sent it to you! It brightened my day to see something that reminded me of Sweet Dakin! Love you!!!
