************This Just In*************
Drew weighed in today at 12 lbs 12 oz and 23 1/2 inches tall
Daddy took Drew to his checkup this morning all by himself. I am so proud of him! John said all the women in the waiting room were jealous because their husbands would not take their kids the doctor.
Drew also made eyes at all the nurses! John said Drew would lock eyes with a nurse walking by and then he would crack the biggest smile!

Today Drew is 4 months old! The past four months have flown by. We just returned from a wonderful visit to Oregon . Drew had such a great time meeting all of you. I was so shocked that he was so well behaved. I had been worried he would cry the whole time we were gone. I prayed often that he would feel comfortable and relaxed on our trip. The 10 days were gone went by so quickly. I wish we could have stayed longer.
The past two weeks Drew has been working on standing up - with help from us of course. John has been holding his hands and Drew will pull himself up and give the biggest grin, he is so proud of himself. His legs are getting so strong. Drew can stand assisted for over a minute before he sits back down. I am so impressed. He is also starting to fit into his 3-6 month cloths. He is growing so big! He has a doctor's appointment on Thursday so we will see how much he has grown.
Drew is also talking a lot more. He jibbers constantly now! John is trying to get him to say Dewalt & Craftsman - I wish him the best of luck! Drew is also playing with his toys more and really listening to the books I read him. His favorite book is the Peek-A-Boo book; he gets so excited when we read it to him. His little grin is priceless!

We have a huge praise! Our cat Winston was finally returned to us. He ran out the front door over a month ago and disappeared. He had a collar with our info on it just incase this happened! We thought he was permanently gone, but alas our prayers were answered on Monday when a neighbor a few blocks over called our home to let us know he saw our kitty hanging around and just wanted to make sure we weren't looking for him. We immediately drove over to the house and there he was! Winston was so skinny his collar was very close to coming off. He has lost half his body weight and a good portion of his hair was cut off due to lots of knots. He looks very pathetic, but we are just ecstatic to have him home again. Praise be to God for bringing our kitty home!
I have more pictures to post on the website, but I can't get them to download off our video camera. I should get the up shortly.
Have a wonderful Memorial Day & God bless!
