Deklan is such a trooper! He has been so content to spend so much time in the stroller lately. It seems a lot of the things that we do require that he be in there. Whether it's going to see PBS Kids in the park (so Ryker can see Super Why) or going to the playground, playing outside, or just allowing Mom to go for a jog, Deklan is so patient and happy rolling along. He has had a couple of good nights of sleep here and there, but we're still working on consistency. He is eating really well right now. He loves pork chops, smoked sausage, and asparagus. I'm so blessed to have two boys that are so easy to feed. The downside with D is that he still isn't nursing or drinking well, so that is a concern for his weight/development as well as part of the whole sleepless night thing. I'm confident that we'll figure it out in time. We are grateful that he is eating well and that he hasn't been nearly as cranky during the daytime as of late.
Deklan is cruising everywhere. He loves to pull up to a stand on everything: the refrigerator, the cabinets, toys, the couch (and he'll walk around holding on to the cushions), and even his crib. He is getting several more teeth in, currently. He has one more that poked through on top and two more that are days away from breaking through on the bottom, for what will be a grand total of 8! Goodness, that's a mouth full!
Deklan will be back next week with stories from his first Daddy Day and news from his trip to Grandma's house. For now, please enjoy these pictures from the past week. See you then...
