Whoo-hoo!!

After several weeks of teething, we have some exciting news!
(well, exciting to us, haha)


It's a sharp little tooth, right on the bottom, looks like there will be another right beside it soon. I tried to take a picture, but it's not big enough yet. So bittersweet. I don't want him to be growing up... I want him to stay my little baby forever and ever...

Re-styled the Collage Wall

I've been thinking about re-styling the collage wall in Durham's room for a few weeks now. It's not that I don't love it, but I spend a lot (a lot, a lot) of time in there. Diaper changes, reading books, some playing, and bunches of rocking and snuggling. The rocking chair faces that wall, and even when it is pitch black in there, I can still see it. Little outlines of frames, and I know what is in each one. 

I kept almost everything that was up there already, and just added more to it. Frames I already had, nautical prints I found on pinterest, my baby's 4.5month old feet, a hand painted D, and a birth announcement one of the moms on in my mommy group made for me. I really love it.

Before:


now:







this is what baby D was doing while I re-arranged everything. It only took about 15 minutes because I had already prepped everything during nap time. :)


and... these are why I was able to do it in the first place... I used these command velcro hanging strips on almost everything up there (the heavy stuff has nails, but that is only a couple things). They are awesome. Easy to use and don't leave a million holes in the wall!
