Update...

So it's been a real long time since we last posted. A lot has been going since Colin's B-day. We had a golf tournament for Colin which raised $2,000 for the local Ronald McDonald house to help parents with kids who are sick in our local children's hospital. The brand new Golisano Children's Hospital opened in September and they are in the process of updating the Syracuse Ronald McDonald House so we wanted to help out. We passed Colin's one year anniversary and continue to miss him everyday.

Lastly, we continue to watch Drew grow up, play, laugh, eat, crawl and now cruise behind things and all around the couches. We're hoping that he's walking by Christmas. Yesterday was Halloween.. Drew dressed up as a race car driver. On Friday, they had a costume parade at his daycare. You can see a photo below of me and Drew. We had a party at his cousins friday night and then on yesterday we took him to several houses and had some family over. Plus you add in the hour time change and he is really thrown off.... I also posted some pictures of him that I took tonight... Enjoy....

New Do.....

Drew's hair was getting a little crazy so Grandma cut it. Take a look......

Doesn't he look like Jim Carey in Dumb and Dumber.... Drew was not a fan of getting his hair cut, in fact he cried the whole time.....

Much better all messed up....
In other news... Drew stood up with help from the couch yesterday..... We dropped the crib height immediately.... He also got his first cold but has handled it well. All the snots... Jeez....

Back from the Beach.....

So our week long trip to Ocean City, NJ is over.. Drew spent probably 3 hours on the beach the whole week. First off, it was really hot and humid when we gotthere which made him kind of cranky out on the beach. He wouldn't sleep because he wanted to crawl and eat sand all day... Like a friend of ours said it was like alligator wrestling trying to keep him off the sand. We then got smart as grandma went and bought him a small pool to let him lay in on the beach which worked well. Take a look at the beach pictures.....

"Not sleeping in the sun tent"
"Having fun in the air"

"Baby Pool"

At night, we would go out to the boardwalk and either eat junk food, walk in stores or watch his cousins on the amusement rides.... Drew even went on one by himself (well with daddy)...

"Holding on with two hands"

"One hand like a maverick"

These pictures were taken on our last night there...

Also this week, Daddy went to Citi Field while on work in NYC to see the Mets play the Colorado Rockies. I can't wait to go with him.. He did get to see my cousin Meghan and Uncle Brian. Check out the picture of Meghan and Daddy with Mr. Met....

On The Move.....

So Drew this week has started to do the army crawl all over the place. He goes after everything now... My favorite is when he scoots over to the AC vent and leans over it. His hair blows straight up and his face and hands start to freeze... He loves it... Here are two videos of him moving around. Doesn't he look like the old man's dog on Family Guy?

6 months old, trip to CT and hanging out with my family

Drew is 6 months old today...it went by so fast! Other than some diaper rash he's doing great. Drew has been really busy. He spent time in CT and had his first pool party!! He's getting ready for his Jersey shore vacation in a few weeks. He's always happy & smiling.


Drew is creeping on his stomach all over the floor these days. It's only a matter of time until he will be on all floors and Mommy and Daddy will be really busy! It has been so exciting for us to watch him move around. Enjoy the pictures....



So happy to be with Daddy



Playing with Brady (one of his only boy cousins)



First time in the pool with Daddy & Brielle

Cousin Karen came all the way from NC to make Drew laugh


Exhausted at the end of the party


Hanging with Jenna & Kelsey



Just chilling with Riley & Ava (Yes-he has on a pink bib....Daddy was not happy about that but, Mommy forgot his manly bibs)


Kaylee, Meg, Paige & Aunt Laurie (notice a pattern here-Drew has a lot of girl cousins!)

The week that was...

This week Drew got tossed from daycare because he had 2 loose poops in a day (it's their policy). Although, I am not sure if the policy really works because a little bug went around the class. He is happy, but poops a lot. We took him to the doctor and she just said it should go away within the week. They did weigh him and he is now up to 15 lbs 8 oz....... So this morning after I fed Drew, we were watching TV in our room and I fell asleep, only to find out that so did Drew.. Take a look.... (Don't worry.. It is a king bed and mommy was watching the whole time so I didn't roll over him).
He now loves sleeping on his stomach....


So this afternoon when we got home Drew was rolling on the floor on a blanket and decided to roll himself up like a little pig in a blanket...... (don't worry we were watching.. no need for the DCF).....

Sitting Up!!!!!

So this week, Drew has started to sit up on his own... He is still wobbly and can't sit up from a lying position but he is getting better.... Take a look....He is playing with his little bongo drums.... Oh yea he also has a tooth about to bust through..... Hopefully soon......

Trip to New Hampshire

Over Memorial Day weekend, we all went to NH for Drew's twin cousins 1st birthday's. Drew slept 3 of the 4 hour car ride. We only had to stop once so, we stopped in the small quaint Vermont town of Wilmington to eat at a good little diner called Dots. Below is a picture of Drew at Dots. And his bib does reference that he is single... He loved it probably as much as the waitresses loved him.....

After Dots, we stopped off the campground where his other cousins and grandparents were staying for the weekend. He made himself at home right away. He even left his mark on his Nanna and Grandpa's bed as he peed out his diaper.... Whoops..... Sunday was Jenna and Kelsey's party which was a great time... Drew can't wait to dig into his first birthday cake..... Notice how much fun he was having.....


Look at that adorable face....he's so happy and he has his big brother's beautiful hazel eyes. Drew had his 4-month check up and he's doing great! He's 14 lbs 14oz and 22 inches long. He started rolling a few weeks ago and he's also working on some teeth. He started cereal but, he's not a big fan of it. He never wants to sit still long enough to eat! Drew is a really good boy at daycare-his teacher's love him!!
