Wow, it's been a long time!

Wow, I've really been a blog slacker! No reason, well hundreds, but I'm hoping to get back to recording Drew's life regularly. He has changed so much since last summer. He's grown into a funny, smart and always entertaining little man. He loves puzzles, Play-Doh and all sports-soccer, baseball and basketball are his top three. He's officially entered the "why" stage! "Why, mommy?", "Why?" "Why"? This stage, which was funny for the first 12 hours, but has now become a challenge for me to come up with new answers to his inquiry--another reason I have no time to blog. Anyway, to my one reader, stay tuned for hopefully often Drew updates as we look forward to the spring, starting soccer and several other adventures this year.

Gecko Hunter

Outside of the cute little talking guy on the Geico commercials, I really didn’t know much about Geckos…until we went to Florida and Drew became fascinated with them.

Geckos are small lizards found in warm climates such as Mike’s folks house. The can get into the screened in porch and they love to eat bugs. However, if they are grabbed or threatened by say, as small child, they can drop their tails as a defense mechanism. When it first drops the tail it will wriggle around on the floor, this is hoped to distract the enemy while the gecko makes their escape or to freak out the small child’s mother as she is already a basket case about the fact that her child can grab and catch these tiny lizards and then wants to keep them.

Drew sent many hours looking for, finding, catching, holding and releasing these tiny little guys…and to be honest, he became very good at it. So much so, that we named him the Gecko Hunter.

Happy 60th Nana!!!

Happy 60th Birthday Nana (my mom Joyce)!!!!! Hope you have a great day and take some time to enjoy yourself. You mean so much to all of us and we're excited about celebrating your day with you. We hope you know how much you are loved, needed and thought of and we wouldn't be who we are today without you. We love, where's the cake and ice cream!!!!


While visiting Mike's folks, we spent a day at SeaWorld. It was a first time for all three of us, so we had a blast and I didn't take as many photos as I would have liked, only because we were so busy looking at the animals, watching the great shows and enjoying the day. We can't wait to go back!

The family that plays together, stays together….

We just returned from a great visit to see Drew’s grandparents in Orlando. Outside of a great time with them, we were able to do some really fun family stuff, including a day at SeaWorld. And although I’ll post more photos from the trip later, I wanted to mark this moment. This is our 2 and ½ year mark of becoming a family of three, and the last few years have been wonderful. I can’t remember life before Drew. In such a short time this little guy has gone from a tiny premature infant, fighting for his life, to a strong, healthy and incredibly smart toddler. I’m very happy to now be a family of three!
