Drew's latest

Drew has been busy learning lots of new things, like how to sit up by himself and how to roll over until he gets to whatever he wants.  Crawling is oh-so-close and mommy is not as excited about this milestone as the others... He also has two cute bottom teeth!
Here are a few updated shots of the world's cutest baby.

 Sitting up like a big boy!

Get yer guns up!

Football season begins!!

I've never seen Jim so excited about the beginning of football season. And that's saying a lot. He couldn't wait to introduce Drew to the Cowboys. Thankfully, Drew went to bed about 10 minutes after the game started. He's too young to experience the kind of disappointment that came at the end!

Friends Kate and Kalie

Another "then and now" update post. Drew and I met Kate and her little girl Kalie at the Mommy Group I attended while on maternity leave. It was nice to have other people who just wanted to sit around and talk about how much spit up was coming out one end of their baby and what the poop looked like coming out the other end. Oh, and sleep. We talked a lot about sleep and how we missed it. :) 

Here are Kate and I with Drew and Kalie at the Mommy Group back in April. Drew's 6 weeks old and Kalie's 2 months old.

Here's Kalie that same day. What a cutie!
No wonder Drew thinks she's dreamy.

Now here are Drew and Kalie at 5 and 5 1/2 months old.
Kalie's showing off her new Big Girl carseat
Drew's showing off by proving he can drool more than her.
It was an "anything you can do I can do better" kind of moment.

I've mentioned the mutual love affair between daddy and son going on at our house.

Here's proof in the form of a video.  It started out with Jim "doing piggies" ("This little piggie went to market...") and Drew chuckling a little. By the time I got out the iPhone to video, the chuckles had turned to screams of delight. 

I dare you to watch this without smiling.

The wonderful world of semi-sold food

Most of my pictures lately involve Drew with the latest food item smeared all over his face.
Why is it soooo cute to get messy at a certain age, but not so cute after that?

Here's a blow-by-blow of his first round of "solids."

Bring on the big boy food! (First time in big high chair)

 Let's see if I like this stuff:

Hmmm... let me think about it.

Oatmeal... Yes!

Avocado (first fruit... or is it a veggie...
in any case: first "solid" that's not cereal) -

Sweet potato (up my nose) - YES!

(I think Daddy coached him on this one.)

Hugs from Daddy are the best

Cuteness seems to run in the family!

Take me out to the ballgame. Soon!

Since the baseball season has almost passed us by and we've tried hard not to let Drew watch any Astros games (too much disappointment this early on could scar him for life) I thought we should honor his first season by dressing him up as a Major Leaguer.

Here he is all happy in his carseat.

Now with the hat!

Now the bad boy look

I thought I'd see what he could do with a ball
(Is he a lefty? a shortstop?)
But this is the only ball I could find...

Rumor has it, Drew's Cousin Jason
(who is a college tennis coach with a fantastic new job!)
is all set to recruit Drew. 
So for your files, Jason, here are Drew's skills with the tennis ball:

Eating it:

Dribbling it between his legs
(You have to admit that's impressive, even if it's the wrong sport and the wrong ball.)
Dribbling is a specialty!

And getting ready to work on his serve.

Daddy's excited to see what happens during football season!
