Nana + Drew

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..

Drew’s Major Milestones:

  • 3-4 Weeks Tracks Faces
  • 6 Weeks Bares Some Weight on Legs
  • 6.5 Weeks Coos and Giggles
  • 7.5 Weeks Holds Head Up to 90 Degrees When on Tummy
  • 8 Weeks Brings Fist to Mouth & Grasps Rattle
  • 9 Weeks Keeps Head Stable When Pulled Up to Sitting
  • 11 Weeks Rolls Over from Front to Back & Sleeps Through the Night!!!!!!!

The Nursery!

We’re finally (mostly) done with the nursery! It was so fun working on projects for the baby’s room.

Here you can see the crib and bookcase. We painted the bookcase and added paper to the back for interest. The portraits and a painting (bigger below) hang on the walls. The final touch: a handmade mobile.

fox-in-trees-painting

We created this painting by first doing the background with acrylic then cut out trees that were made with watercolor on paper. The fox and bird were watercolors as well. So fun to make this scene.

 

end-table

We made this end table using twigs gathered outside. On the chair you can see a quilt that was sewn before we were even pregnant in anticipation of a baby one day. That day will be here soon!

We made this simple poster with some advice for our son.
