Happy Birthday Declan

Declan -

Happy 2nd Birthday! I can hardly believe you are already 2. While I know these early years go fast for most parents, yours have sailed by. Since your birth we have started a new job, moved to a new state, sold our old house, moved 3 times and bought a new house. It's been a little chaotic to say the least. But I've enjoyed every minute of it.

You are the most talkative, stubborn, strong-willed little boy I know. Your our book reader, non-tv watcher, salad eater and do-it-youselfer. You challenge your dad and I in ways we never knew were possible. You absolutely adore your big brother. When he is at school you ask repeatedly when we are going to pick him up. And when you sleep late in the morning Carson always asks when we can go wake you up. It is a connection that I know will only grow stronger.

So Happy Birthday my little boy. You are such a blessing to our family. I look forward to all your years ahead.
