Boiler Up!


This is for all you Purdue fans out there! Declan, like his mom, is a boiler fan and wanted to show off his Purdue Pride yesterday when the boilers crushed IU!! It was a great send off to Joe Tiller:) Oh, unlike his dad, Declan does not cheer for Notre Dame, who should have won yesterday, but didn't!

A couple funny videos...

Just wanted to share a couple videos we took this past weekend. Declan was "talking" up a storm, so I decided to grab the camera and try to video it...well, he decided to stop talking and instead tried to eat the camera! The second video is of Dad and Uncle Kienan...BC had been "flying" Declan over to Kienan for awhile before I started the video (that's why it's so short) and with Dec weighing almost 18 lbs, Dad's arms got a little tired!

I'm 5 months old!

Our little guy is 5 months old now! Each month I've been taking a picture of him in only a diaper, while sitting in his boppy pillow...well, he's outgrown the boppy! It's so fun to see how much he has grown each month. Last month he learned to roll over and we can't wait to see what this month will bring...maybe he'll sleep through the night or cut his first tooth (he is a slobbery fool right now)! No matter what he does or doesn't do, we feel so blessed and fortunate to have him...he is just amazing!

Dad and Dec

Oh I just love my guys! BC was playing around with Declan the other day and I just had to video his little laughs:)

I've been tagged!

Okay, so we know that I'm new to blogging...well, Darcy tagged me so here it goes! My fourth picture in my fourth folder is... BC and I at the lake on Memorial Day:) This was taken a couple of weeks before Declan was born! It makes me laugh because people asked when BC was due! Just for the record, he was pushing his stomach out that far (he says!).

Okay, now for 7 weird things about me... 1. I am a vegetarian, but I don't eat salad (it makes me gag) 2. I don't like to drive...at all...BC does all of the driving unless I really need to go somewhere 3. On my birth certificate, SS card and license my name is spelled SHILO because that is the way my dad spells it:) 4. I like to do the dishes by hand, I don't think the dishwasher does a good job, plus I don't like to unload it 5. I need the faucet running in order to go to the bathroom no matter where I am 6. I eat my food "meticulously" BC says...for example, if we are having pasta, veggies and bread for dinner, I eat all of the veggies, then the bread and then the pasta, I don't mix up my bites:) 7. I can't stand touching raw meat, it is quite possibly the worst thing in the world

Happy Halloween!

















Happy Halloween! We had a wonderful first Halloween with Declan. We headed down to Starbucks on Mass Ave and went trick or treating in Lockerbie Square. Delcan got lots of good candy (even though he slept through most of it)...dad even got a beer at one house! It was a beautiful night, we couldn't have asked for better weather. We thought Dec was the cutest bear, he may not think so 15 years from now though!

Carving pumpkins!




It's pumpkin carving time! Mom designed it and dad cut it as Declan held the scooper:) Just like every year, we watched Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin.
