Andrew is growing, growing, growing!!! We took him to the doctor and he weighs 9 pounds!
We went to our sunday school Christmas party and it was fun! It was hard leaving Drew, but he did great with Grams and Poppy. So, we had a white elephant gift exchange which was great, except for one of the gifts we received... a huge bean bag chair, courtesy of the Fants. The funniest part was getting it into our car. Aaron spend some time beating it into the trunk. :) We really dont know what to do with it, but we put it into the office for now. Lola loved it and now we call it her thrown. I doubt we will keep it because it is the size of Montana, but it will stay there till we find it a home.

Last night was a big deal! Our friends, Lindz and Brett came over and we took Andrew out in public for the first time! We were nervous, but he only got fussy a couple of times and was quickly soothed with a binky (sp?) or mommy talking to him. I know many of yall are thinking its crazy we havent taken him out, but anyone who has had a baby in the Nicu knows that they make you paranoid. :) We felt ok taking him out because he is getting stronger and weighs 8 pounds! He gained a pound in a week! That is a lot. :) Before we went to Roadhouse, Lindz and Brett got to hold him. So sweet. Brett was a trooper and held him when he was hungry. :)
We just can not get enough of our sweet Andrew! We had our own photo shoot. :) He gave us some really funny pictures.
