What a happy baby we have! Drew went in today for a checkup and had the waiting room in fits and giggles. He was laughing and cooing to everyone. This past week he has really been developing his fine motor skills, as well as studying faces and objects. He has also been laughing and talking a lot. He is so much fun to be around. I went to a Women's Dinner at church tonight and one of the sweet ladies that watched Drew in the nursery said she wanted to take him home with her. He had entertained them all night long. I am so glad he is settling in a little better with strangers.
We went camping this past week with our church group. Drew was a little angel and I actually was able to finish one of my books. We had such a great time relaxing and playing games with other couples. John enjoyed cooking for all 12 of us! He made steaks, corn on the cob and potatoes on the fire. He is so talented! He also fixed everyone breakfast the next morning. I am so grateful that he finds cooking on camping trips fun, if it were up to me to plan execute meals on campouts we wouldn't go very often.
Drew weighed in today and 12 pounds 3 ounces and 23 inches long. He only gained 6 ounces this past month. He is so busy moving his hands, and holding his head up that he just doesn't have time to put on much weight.
We can't wait to see you all in two more days! We fly into Portland at 11:30 am on Thursday and will be staying until the 21st of May.
