What Declan's been up to...

Playing with the bubbles is the best part of storytime at the library!

Riding the carousel with mommy and daddy at the Utah State Fair!

Declan and his cousins with daddy and papa after they finished a marathon!

He may be sweaty, but he's still my daddy and he makes me so proud!!

Other stuff!...
Declan is officially a walker. No more crawling for him! He walks everywhere. Just a few weeks ago, he wouldn't take one step without holding my hand, now he doesn't want my hand at all! My little boy is so independant! That will take some getting use to for me! Declan is also learning new words everyday. He suprises us all the time with the things he can say. Daddy bought him a basketball. He calls it his "backetball". I will have to post video soon of all the fun words he can say! If I could ever get time to make the video! Anyway, above are some pictures from the past couple weeks. We went to the state fair, storytime at the library and just this past weekend we watched daddy run his 13th marathon and papa run his second!! Congratulations daddy and papa!

It was bound to happen someday, I just wasn't prepared for it to be this soon! My baby was bullied!! By a big mean bully boy! Actually, the boy was probably about 3 years old...old enough to know better! We were at the library for storytime and the bully just walked right up to Declan and pushed him down. And Declan had done nothing to provoke this attack! This 3 year old was just a mean kid! I was in shock. I told that little boy to keep his hands to himself and that there was no reason to have pushed my son. A few minutes later he came back and pushed him down again! I was furious. I've never wanted to punch a 3 year old in the nose so bad in my life! I don't know where his mother was (or I would have punched her in the nose) but I will definately keep an eye out for her if she brings her bully of a son back to storytime next week! In the meantime, I'm going to see if 18 month olds can enroll in Karate!! :)

You AMAZE me!

My sweet, beautiful, bright Declan. Do you know how smart you are? You will be 18 months old this week and already you know how to say about 30 words! Teaching you is very easy because you are eager to learn. And mommy found out tonight that your memory is incredible! A few weeks ago we visited our friends that live nearby and they introduced us to their dog "Cocoa." You picked up on the word immediately and called the dog by name. Well, just tonight, we went back to our friends' house (for the first time in about a month) and as soon as you saw the dog you shouted "Cocoa!" How you remember his name is beyond me!! I could barely remember the puppy's name! But you mr. smarty pants are a genius. Your aunt Lindsey says you must have a photographic memory! You amaze us every day Declan! We can't wait to see what you do next! Keep learning and growing! Love, mommy.

Daddy's home!

For the past two weeks, Declan and I have been on our own! Daddy had to go to Hawaii for air force reserves. We did lots of things to keep ourselves busy though! We went to the Treehouse musuem, went to Peach Days in Brigham City and watched a parade and rode a few rides. We went to several farmers markets to get some goodies and we hung out with friends from our mom's group! Plus we spent lots of time at nana and papa's house! Everyday Declan would point to daddy's clothes in the closet and say "dada". I know he missed him. When daddy got home, Declan welcomed him with a big smile and a few steps!!! Yep, Declan learned to walk while daddy was away. We're glad you're home daddy! Now it's your turn for diaper duty!!!! :)

Seeing is believing!!!

If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn't believe it either! But here it is...the moment we've all been waiting for....drum roll please....
