Kellan listened to the Office in the womb, on his first day of life and a lot of days since then. It makes sense that he would like it so much it would be his first dancing song! Watch that stomach ladies, it will be too much for you to handle! I had no idea babies could dance.

I finally made something that I've pinned on Pinterest!!

I absolutely love pinterest, because there is no commitment. I can like someone else's diy idea or their interior decorating skills and not have to run off and hurry to copy it before I forget. Sure, there are these things a called bookmarks, but it's all words. With pinterest you can see what you've bookmarked! It was brilliantly planned and laid out.

Step 1) Establish an account on
Step 2) Follow their directions. IT's that easy.

I've set up pin boards for DIY around the house, Kellan, FOOD, clothes and a whole lot more!

Well, on to what I've made...Fingerprint Jewelry
Here is the post in which I found the idea.

This picture is a lovely version of what was made.
I on the other hand have a rambunctious, nearly 8 month old. So, getting my fancy camera out and setting up my necklace was NOT an option.

Here is my not-so-fancy shot-

It's cute right, well not the picture but the outcome is really sweet. 
I know two grandma's that are going to love their new fingerprint necklaces.

7 Months Old

Our chunky boy has hit the 7 month mark with stride. He is officially crawling, pulling up and into everything. I think my posts will be more infrequent now that he's so mobile.

Through the past couple of weeks, Kellan has experienced several new things including his first earthquake! We were sitting at home, just returning from a play date. Kellan was in his exersaucer and I was sitting on the floor beside him. At first I thought "earthquake", then thought to myself "no, we live on the east coast, can't be an earthquake", then "okay, this HAS to be an earthquake" as I scooped him up and headed for the door frame covering my baby boy with my own body. Once it was over we headed outside and all of the neighbors popped out of their houses like little prairie dogs on the range.

Thank God for our safety through Hurricane Irene and our first Earthquake. Moments like those make you thankful for being so blessed.

Shower Reveal

David and I have gained some pep in our step! We're so proud of ourselves for tackling our shower floor. After a week and a half of arguing ( we were not meant for home improvement as a team ), working and sweating here is our final result!!

Our only complaint is that we have a spot that was pressed down which collects a tid bit of water and you cannot buy caulk to match anything other than almond or white. BOOO!! Good thing I'm a new found pro at caulk lines!!

Learning to Drum

Kellan went to VA Beach a couple of weeks ago to hear his Grandpa, Mike, play the drums in his new band. Go Grandpa Mike!!! While Kellan was there, Mike used Kellan in his warm ups and look what this little guy learned. I think Kellan's first words may be "more cowbell"

Kellan Stands...

Growing boy...

Happy 6 months & Baptism to our sweet baby boy.
In half of a year you've changed out lives. You've accomplished so much and made us appreciate life in a new way.

Just a few things you've accomplished in your short time here...
You can now bang a hammer
You attract people EVERYWHERE we go
You've eaten vegetables & fruits and even tried a little gatorade thanks to uncle boogie boogie
You rock out everything from a casual onsie to the fancy church going outfit (and mom's favorite=overalls)
You crawl backwards like a maniac
You've been underwater at least twenty times
You sleep through the night (most nights) in your own room
You've been to the North Carolina Mountains, Virginia Beach, Wilmington & DC
You cackle around three times a day at minimum!

We love you our sweet boy <3
