Today Declan turned 17! It warms both of our hearts to see that he has grown into the kind and responsible young man he is today.
Yesterday afternoon Darren and Lorraine came around for some cake and to wish Declan a happy birthday. We “virtually” gave Declan his birthday present, which is a new iPhone, which he’ll get to pick up in a few weeks when all the house stuff settles.
He still needs to work more on smiling in photos, like this one I took on the his 5th birthday. Although I must say he is improving.
