Back before Drew was born, we bought a new crib because Jake wasn’t quite ready to convert his into a big bed. Our logic was that we should give Jake the new crib because he had already chewed on the sides of his old one while teething. Why ruin two sets of furniture, right?
So the other day, I went to get Jake from “no-nap” (that’s what I call it these days because rarely is naptime an actual NAP anymore) and he was very excited and proud of himself for some reason.
Ok, I’m seriously feeling neglected. When I look at my blog stats, I mostly have 14 page hits per day.
I KNOW I have more than 14 friends. AND it says I have 36 followers (weak). Are you all just reading it in a feed or are we seriously all enemies now??
SO, let’s make a deal. If you read this blog (especially if you’re incognito. Don’t be embarrassed, I stalk people too!!), PLEASE leave me a comment and click the “follow me” button on the side. Just so I can feel some love. I mean, it IS Valentine’s Day after all
And if I post this and still don’t receive at LEAST 14 comments, I will discontinue this blog forever. No more pictures of my super cute kids.
I’m also really good at empty threats.
p.s. and don’t forget to read the post about Drew below. In all of his 8 month cuteness!
Drewbie Drewbie Drew. I am so sorry that we keep coming up with ways to lengthen your name. I am already starting to worry about how we can fit your entire name on the back of your high school letter jacket. Because you’ll let me do that, right?
You are the happiest kid. I used to think people were lying when they’d say their kids would wake up happy every day. But now I know your older brother is just unique. (A pint sized version of your mother, I might add…). You are grinning ear to ear each time I get you from your crib in the morning or from a nap. You wake up in the 7:00 hour and sometimes go back to sleep or just happily play with your Scout bear. We usually get you around 8 and sometimes I wonder how long you’d actually stay in there before you start crying! For the past month or so you’ve been very predictable with sleep with makes life so much easier (here I go jinxing myself). You typically sleep from 10am-12pm and 2-3:30pm during the day and about 7pm – 8am at night. And did I mention you’re always happy about it?
Cue Hallelujah chorus.
Drew, this month…
-you are into everything. We never really had to childproof for Jake. He never bothered electrical outlets, trinkets, cords, etc. YOU, mister Drew, bother them! This has thrown us for a loop because we’re constantly having to keep an eye on you. You put everything in your mouth (seriously, everything) and are everywhere. If you’re in a good mood you will just crawl off on your own and I’ll find you playing by yourself in the playroom or wondering around the kitchen. This is a completely foreign concept to me!
I realized the other day that you really are a quiet kid. To be fair, someone else doesn’t give you much of a chance to say anything! You are most vocal in your high chair and right before bath time. Your favorite sounds are “babababababababababababa” and “yayayayayayayaya”. The beginnings of very insightful thoughts, I’m sure.
I am so sad we’re getting closer to a year! It’s been a fun month and I love this age so much more than the newborn stage (sorry, but true). We are so proud of your accomplishments and are lucky to call you our Drew! We love you!
Lately I’ve been very convicted to share my faith on this blog. One of my resolutions this year was to put the following verse in action:
I started talking to Jake about his middle name the other day and he was not excited. He liked the idea of brother having a middle name, all his friends having one, but when I would ask him about his own name, he would get mad. He was being so goofy! The funniest part was when he told me Drew was called “Andrew-bie James”. He almost exclusively refers to Drew as “Drewbie” now…looks like the nickname may stick around for awhile…
