If you ever need entertainment, just listen to Declan “read” the book “Make Way for Ducklings”. Once you’ve heard all the ducks “querwacking with their little querwackers just as loudly as they can querwack” you’ll never read the book quite the same way. His memory is amazing, and he can sing obscure songs and quote whole books just like his Uncle Philip could.
His imagination is lively, his personality is quick to make friends, and his red curls and freckles and elf ears are adorable. He travels like a pro, and has seen more countries than I have! Lately he’s taken to running up to me when he sees me, exclaiming “I haven’t seen you for SO LONG!”, regardless if it was two days or two weeks. Needless to say, I melt.
