Happy 7 months Drew!

Well, baby boy, you sure are wonderful! You really make us laugh more than we ever have. (Not to say that we didnt laugh before, but there is something about watching your own baby that makes the soul smile) Andrew, at seven months you are sitting up all by yourself and playing with your toys, you have no fear when it some to falling over. You will arch back and take a fall backward and reach as far as you can and fall forward. No matter what you are determined to get what you want. You are also getting much more vocal about what you are happy about and not so happy about. The only fruit you really love is pears, just like your daddy. You seem to like things that arent so sweet. You like veggies a lot more, some of your favs are: peas, squash, and sweet potato. You HATED mom's homemade baby food, so I guess the store brand will do just fine. One thing that we think is super cute is you grab your feet constantly and one thing you just did today was discover your wee wee. In the bathtub, you discovered it. Your daddy said you were thinking, " whoa, and I thought my feet were cool" Too funny. :) I thank the Lord for giving such a precious gift to us. I pray you come to know your Maker and have the confidence to live your life for Him. We LOVE you so much sugar (that is my nickname b/c he weighed as much as one bag of sugar)!

God will hold me...

This Mothers Day was wonderful! I have such a sweet son that the Lord has given me and that is enough. I have to say, on this Mothers day the Lord continues to remind me that Andrew is NOT mine, he is HIS. Ever since Drew was born I have worried about this and about that and really it has stolen some of my joy of being a mother. The devil will take what he knows you are weak at and consistently try and put it in the forefront for you to focus on. Dont get me wrong, we had many things that were scary when Drew was born, but since being home from the NICU, he has done awesome. (He is now 25-50% in weight and 50-75% in height, he looks huge now, considering he weighed 5.3 and was 18 1/2 inches long) I often wonder why I worry, and I am sure this is a mom thing, but I am trying to really let it go. The Lord's will is done for Aaron, Drew, and my life, so why not just be happy. So, from now on, I will pray when the devil makes me worried and try my best to cherish every moment with Andrew. Lord I pray for all mommas out there that you take the fear and control that we have and show us the sheer joy our children can and do bring us. Thank you so much for Andrew and Aaron!!!

Here is a video that brings me a lot of joy just watching it! Drew loves people and laughs so hard sometimes. It is awesome to be a momma to such a happy baby. :)
