    No. 3 for No. 3

    Today is a special day at my grandsons' house: It's Declan's birthday!

    Today my grandson No. 3 celebrates birthday No. 3! Yippee!

    three year old boy

    My youngest grandson — who's 100-percent boy — continually makes me chuckle with his wacky, wonderful take on the world. A recent example: Declan told me over the phone the other day that he and Mommy were going on a special date that night, just the two of them while big bros Brayden and Camden enjoyed an outing with Dad.

    "How special is that!" I said. "A private date for just you and Mommy."

    To which he replied with unexpected enthusiasm: "Yeah! A pirate date!" — while Mommy Megan in the background quickly explained to sweet Deckie that no, Gramma said private, not pirate, and no pirates would be joining them.

    Photos Megan shared of the private date prove Declan wasn't too heartbroken no pirates participated.

    Three's a charm, and my favorite three-year-old possesses the trait in ten times his weight.

    The same goes for curiousity...

    Plus silliness in spades...

    Happy birthday, dear Deckie Doo! Oh, how Gramma loves you!

    (And oh how thankful Gramma is the simple birthday card with dollars from her and PawDad elicited such joy!)

    Wait, I thought he was an infant...wasn't he just yesterday? He looks so handsome already, I am willing to bet he will have lots of dates in future.

    I check back in just often enough to watch your babies grow. These pictures made me happy. I have 12 grandchildren now aged 27-5. They are all very special. I think yours are almost as cute as mine! :)

    What a sweetheart! And he has certainly stolen Grandma's heart!
