December 30th

Today Declan was able to see his mobile in his crib! He was totally glued to it and couldn't stop looking at it. We also ran errands to Costco and Fred's. He wore his cute elf hat from Great Nana and his booties to stay extra warm. He's still a bit congested
today but is in a very good mood. He slept really well last night and woke up feeling better.

Seahawks Sunday

Declan has been a bit congested the last two days. Yesterday he went to visit Great Nana. Uncle Todd has been staying with her and he went for a bike ride so we went to visit. She gave Declan a new hat she had made for him, booties and a pair of cowboy boots.

Today we've snuggled on the couch with him all day so he can rest, eat and be "humidified." Is that a word? He's enjoyed watching the Seahawks game with his daddy.

Seahawk down! 

Here's his new hat from Great Nana. 

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve we went to Snohomish! Declan got to meet Chad and Lynne, Mark and Becky. We had delicious appetizers and dessert. We drank grinch punch. At 11:00 we went to church.

Today Declan and I went with Grammy to Wight's Nursery to look at their beautiful Christmas decorations. Afterwards we went to Scuttlebutt to meet Aunt Paula, Krista and Traci for lunch. It was Declan's first visit to Scuttlebutt! He did great. He sat with Grammy or me the whole time and looked around and listened. Then we went to Hobby Lobby to get a few things for his scrapbook. Krista hadn't been there before and she was in heaven!

Christmas Day!

Declan's first Christmas day was great! We had stayed the night at Grammy and Pop's house. In the morning we got up and Santa had brought Declan a See and Say toy. He loves it! He sits quietly and listens to it. We had a Dutch Baby for breakfast. Then Declan took a nap in his swing and Brad and I helped get the table ready for dinner. Dick and Roberta came over and we visited with them. Then Scott, Kristine and Elias arrived. Pop went to go get Great Nana and Todd. She came in her wheel chair. Declan took another short nap. Paula, Dan, Krista and Traci came later. We had a great New York Roast for dinner with mashed potatoes, green salad, broccoli and more. Of course Declan woke up right when dinner was hot! Later on Chess came over to spend the rest of Christmas with us. We made ornaments with Krista and Traci. Then the Barnards left and we opened presents and ate cookies. Then we packed up and headed for home. We opened our Hamilton presents when we got home and then went straight to bed!
