Mommy Kisses

Over the past couple of years I've discovered mommy kisses heal everything.  Its amazing how any boo-boo, large or small, Drew comes to me for a kiss for his bump, scrap or bruise.  I feel magical to have this type of power.  Tears are flowing and once I kiss the area, all he goes to carry on to what ever adventure he was doing while before his injury.

First Order of Business

Bragging about my little boy!  Of course I'll tell you my little man is amazing, lovable, thoughtful and my whole world.  But, just like any little kid, he has a mischievous side to him, but hey he's 3!  Yup, I said it, he 3 now.  Last time I posted about Drew, he was a year and a half.  People say time flys, but I can watch it move so much faster now that he's growing up.

Drew's signed up for soccer at his preschool and he's taking swimming lessons at the local YMCA.  He loves being outside and especially when we go camping.  He misses his big brother who lives in Virginia (he's doing well and going into high school this fall, yikes) and loves his cat Optimus Prime (can you guess who named him?).   And he's fully potty trained (oh yeah) thanks to that silly kitty of ours (it was the incentive for him to do his thing on the potty).

He's in speech therapy due to his 14 or so ear infections messing with hearing while learning to speak.  Its frustrating at times, but I can see improvements in leaps and bounds.  One day I feel what he's working on isn't sticking, then BAM!, he doing well.  We still have much more work to do, but since his tubes were put in last December, we are headed down the right path.

That's my Drew in a nut shell.  He's much more then that I'm sure you'll see.

What's Under There?

This is my son, trying to get someones attention on the other side of the door. This door opens to the bathroom. When he feels he should be in the room with you, but for what ever reason the other person does not a 1 year old in this private area, he feels he should stick his fingers under the door for you to see.

When you are on the inside, you know he's there. His stealth skills still have to be mastered, but all you see are the tops of two little fingers trying to grab onto anything under the door. Its funny when the person on the inside does touch his fingers, the laughter starts (on both sides of the door).

Just Like Grandpa

Drew not only does he resemble his Grandpa Charlie, but he likes to represent his favorite football team, Washington Redskins and look at Firetrucks, just like him! Wow, this is scary (not monster scary, just unbelievable scary how family resemblances come out through generations)!

Apple Picking With Family

Sunday was a beutiful day out. I'm so glad we chose it to go apple picking with the family. Its our annual trip to the Dickenson Farm with my in-laws, my neice, FIL, Jeff and for his first time on this trip, Drew. It was the usual routine, hop on the tracter, go to the orchard, pick apples and wait for the tractor to return, but it was still fun. I don't think I could ever get tired watching everyone have a good time.

Drew loved running free, helping daddy and Ally pick apples. Everyone likes to sample the product before placing them in the bag, but Drew, not so much. I'm sure it'll grow on him! I know he just enjoyed being with everyone. At the end of the adventure, he got to sit on the tractor that pulled us to and from the orchard, he loved that!

I can't wait until we do our annual Vermont day trip and what adventures we come across then.

Halloween Practice

We were out practicing the other day with Drew's motorcycle. He's working on his stearing, but riding is no problem. The reason we need to "practice" is Drew will be a Harley Man for Halloween! I just don't know how we are going to get him off the bike to go door to door, maybe once he finds out what the neighbors are going to give him, he'll leave the bike behind!

We started working on his costume this past weekend. We found clothing pieces at the near-by goodwill a few weeks ago and now its time to put it all together. I have to pick up a couple more items, but we are very close to completion! I can't wait to see it all done.
