How Can it Possibly be.......

That Declan turned 5 years old on Saturday?

Here is 5 yrs ago:


Here he is, just a few days old.

This is Declan's 1st Birthday.

What a little DUDE he was at 1.


Here he is, turning 2.....

Sweet little boy, see my preggo belly (blue shirt behind him)??? That would be Teagan in there.


Declan turning 3...


This is his 4th birthday.... yep, and another preggo belly. (And YES, people, as you can see in the background, WE DO HAVE A TV!!! We don't spend all of our 'spare' time making babies....)


And then this year, turning the big 5.

He got a 2 wheel Razor scooter, blue, of course!


AND, we took him to Chevy's. Although, I don't think he was nearly as amused as we were when they sang to him. Did I mention that he has always been rather serious? I wondered if he was old enough to be embarrassed? I think I remember getting embarrassed and blushing by the time I was five.

He was a little more interested when he realized that they were bringing him some ice cream.


They were kind enough to bring an ice cream for Teagan too. Notice the Strawberry Shortcake pretties in her hair, and the pretty bracelet that Nana sent her. Where did my baby go? She's looking so big girl now too.


Last, but certainly not least, even Maren got to partake in the festivities!





Wow. Amazing, really. Look at how much has changed in the last 5 years! Our kiddos, our house and furniture. Look how much I've changed too. Weird. Wild. Stuff.
