Documenting Declan (10 Months)

Weight: 18 pounds, 14 ounces
Length: 28.25 inches

My poor baby is the same weight he was last month. He probably wouldn't have been that way a week ago but he has spent the last two days throwing up everything. So as of today, he is holding steady just under 19 pounds. Dealing with a sick Declan has made me miss my curious, wiggling, smiley Declan. He is such a good baby any way he is though. He understands so much and it is weird to look at him and realize that he is listening and not just hearing. He is such a sweetheart and will climb up on my lap and snuggle. I love how he loves.

Building awesome towers. And knocking them down.

He kept knocking out our other baby gate so Daddy crushed all of Declan's dreams by installing a baby gate.

Limes are delicious.

Alex left a small gum ball on the ground. Declan found it and drooled pink all over his shirt.

He learned how to climb out of his high chair. Luckily Sam walked by right as he stood up. So then we started buckling him. Then he learned how to get out of the buckle. We are in trouble.

He loves balls and found a giant one in his bed!

He is a keeper. I love his smooshy cheeks.

Anyone hungry?

Staring and judging.

Oh yes. This stage. Sitting really close to the wall and banging his head into it.

He loves watching Alex and Edison play in the water. Declan usually comes away pretty wet.


This kid has got rhythm. It only take a few notes before he starts bouncing to the beat.

A few more things Declan does for which I do not have a matching picture:
He...
...is always flailing his arms.
...can stand for a few seconds (the most I have seen was 20 seconds). He is now starting to try to stand up in the middle of rooms with no object to push off of except the floor.
...loves drinking out of sippy cups.
...cruises along the couch.
...is always smiling. He will even return a smile while crying.
...thinks the fastest way to get somewhere is a straight line and will climb over anything in his way.
...plays catch with himself for a majority of the day. He throws it, squeals, and chases after it. He throws it like a soccer throw. So adorable because his arms barely reach the top of his head.
