We used to call Declan “monkey” when he was in my belly – because the kid literally jumped up and down inside me all the time.
Today we were at the park, and he noticed some older children climbing a tree. He immediately wanted to try and and we thought, “OK, what the heck?”
The kid was amazing. Up and down and all over the branches (with his dad behind him, spotting, of course). He got really high up there for a three and a half year old – and had a perma-grin plastered on his face the whole time.
My son climbs a tree for the first time… and for once in my life I had zero camera. Bryan’s never gonna let me live this one down.
