Dear Santa… let’s hang out sometime

Drew met with Santa and, despite our worries of tears, he was enchanted. There were multiple good pictures of Drew reaching up for Santa’s beard, but we went with one of the smiling ones.  And, while he asked for his two front teeth, Santa might not be quite magical enough to deliver such a big request. Really, that is more the domain of the Tooth Fairy anyway.



Dress Rehearsal

We just couldn’t decide what to dress Drew as for Halloween, so we kind of went overboard. With the exception of three costumes, all were just put together with things around the house. We have our personal favorites, but would love to know what costume you like best. As insane as it seems, we still have one last costume, so you will have to check back here later to see what he really went as for the big day.

Since Last We Saw You…

We haven’t posted since when!?  Time is just moving too fast.  We have had so many fun experiences this summer and now fall. Here is a little glimpse into what we have been up to.

Aunt Lisa and Cousin Owen snuggling Drew earlier this summer.

Cousin Owen feeding a baby for the first time…what a pro.

Rolls…what rolls?


Yum! Eating rice cereal with my mouth and plotting world domination with my feet.

Oh how we miss Bellingham. Drew’s first overnight in the Ham for a good friend’s wedding.

Swinging is so much fun!

Drew is so happy to have Grampy visiting.

Baby you can drive my car. LeMay Museum is pretty amazing.

Drew ❤ Nana

We wanted to thank you again, Mom, for everything.  You are so generous in every way.  Not just your major financial help or the many gifts for Drew, but also your emotional support.  Flying here twice to be with us during the good moments (his birth & baby shower) and difficult moments (sleepless nights) — it is so appreciated.  You always support us in every way and we are so lucky to have you in our lives and Drew is one lucky little boy to have such a devoted Nana.

12 Weeks Old Today

We can’t believe that our little DrewDrew is almost 3 months old – wow.  Everyone says that time flies and to enjoy every moment.  We’ve been trying hard to do just that.  Already we look at photos from just a few weeks ago and think “Awe… he was so little!”

Here’s what our cutie pie has accomplished so far..
