Declan will try to pull himself up on anything around the house...bookshelves, drawers, my leg! Here he is caught in the act trying to pull himself up or pull the books the down! It's a good thing he's cute because he's ornery:)

Grandad, Gram and cousin Emmie came down for a visit today. Emmie and Declan had a lot of fun together, he loved watching her run around. She even gave him a kiss...well, more like 6 because I couldn't get a picture the first 5 times:) It was a fun afternoon with love from Gram and tickles from Grandad!

Well, it's me first St. Patty's Day and me mama took me downtown to the St. Patrick's Day Parade! Being the wee lil' guy that I am, me irish eyes were smilin' as I listened to the bagpipes, flirted with the Cathedral High School Cheerleaders and meet US Olympic gymnast Samantha Peszek. Hope you all wore you green today and celebrated this fine Irish holiday:)
9 months old! We just can't believe it! Declan continues to grow and learn new things everyday. He's an expert at getting himself where he wants to go (not by crawling forward, but by spinning from his bum to his tummy back to his bum or crawling backwards). He's starting to successfully pull himself up on things and pull the photo albums off the shelves! He's even added some more food to his diet (refried beans and oatmeal). We just came back from the doctor (he got a clean bill of health) and he weighs 21 lbs 13 oz and is 29 1/4 inches long! She did say that he should be getting at least one 8 hour stretch of sleep...he gets about 3! We love when he chatters "mom mom" and "dad dad".
Bottom line, we think he's just awesome!

Here is Declan's new favorite game...peek-a-boo! He normally does this with a shirt when we're shopping (it keeps him very busy, but I find myself being stared at as I walk through the store saying "where's Declan?"). Here he is showing his cousin Hannah how to play with a blanket!

Declan and dad spent some QT hanging out last Saturday (I apologize for the horrible t-shirt that BC is wearing, I'm thinking I should try to shrink it or at least hide it in the back of his drawer). Good thing Dec isn't reading yet!Speaking of reading...here's dad and Declan with his favortie book before bed:)
