All he wants to do is...all he wants to do is dance.


Adam and I created these playlists for Henry when he was just a-cookin' in my womb. Soothing worship tunes meant to lull our son into sleep and create a peaceful atmosphere. Sounds wonderful, right? Well, turns out that he prefers "Hollaback Girl" and "Let's Get Retarded" and other soul-searching, meaningful songs. We found this out when he was fussin' the other day. Did the serene hymns bring peace...no. No they did not. Instead, Hollaback Girl lulled him to sleep. Then another song came on...a slow accoustic one. Henry began fussing a bit and so Adam switched it to the next song, "Let's Get Retarded" and ba-da-bing. Out like a light.

Hi, I came across your blog a while back and have found your story to be very inspiring. Could you please tell me where you got your son's blue onsie with the bulldog on it? Thanks!

It looks like Henry takes after his Aunt Brooklynn! (Hollaback girl just happens to be one of my personal favs .. and I get the feeling he knows this!) I cant wait until we have dance parties while were babysitting now!

Love who ever wrote "boom boom pow" too
