Crayon Crazy!

I am busy preparing my classroom for the upcoming school year. My classroom theme is "Welcome to Our Pack"! I made this last night for my door. Now I am trying to figure out how to make crayon pillows for my classroom library. This could be interesting seeing as how I don't sew. If you have any ideas, please let me know!  

The love of a father...

runs deep! 
I see a beautiful father/son relationship forming between these two! I hope that they share the same wonderful relationship that Brandon and his father have!

Callen's Nursery

Our upcoming move had taking pictures of Callen's nursery at the TOP of my to do list. It makes me sad to think that we are leaving the place were Callen first called "home". I have enjoyed rocking and reading to my baby in this room. It is a peaceful place where Callen loves to be. Here are the memories that will forever be in my mind and heart of my baby's first room!

Brandon bought this for Callen's room. We hope that Callen looks at this and is reminded of all the important life lessons that his family has taught him!
This is the first thing that I bought for Callen when we found out that we were having a baby boy!
This is Callen's first Bible that Brandon and I started reading to him while I was still pregnant. The other two books are from the little boy that Callen is named after. They came all the way to our Callen from St. Kitts!
I wanted this rocking chair because it reminded me of the one that I had when I was growing up. When we bought it, it needed refinishing and Brandon so lovingly worked on it to restore it!

This is the crib that Callen's BonBon and Grandpa (Brandon's parents) bought for him. 
This is the bedding that Callen's GiGi and PopPop (my mom and dad) bought for their first grandchild!

This is the cross that was made to match the bedding of our sweet boy's room!

5 Months!

It's hard to believe that our little man is already 5 months old. He is so much fun, and he brings so much joy to our life. This month Callen has mastered rolling from his back to his tummy. He has become A LOT more mobile, which makes diaper changes a little more interesting. Callen enjoys playing on his Baby Einstein Jumper and watching his puppy, Sawyer. He also LOVES to take a bath. Callen splashes, plays, and giggles when his rubber duck comes close to him. He has also started eating solids. So far he has had rice cereal, oatmeal, apple sauce, sweet potatoes, and green beans. His favorite is sweet potatoes. Callen also is practicing drinking water out of a big boy cup. This month he will start drinking juice.
