Santa? Ho ho....

Drew now has a best friend ;-) Well, at least he didn't cry this time! Andy, Drew and I had a fun afternoon of lunch, shopping and visiting Santa. Drew kept saying "Santa" Ho-ho and now recognizes the white beard and red suit on everything!

Last night we had Christmas with the Gaerthofner family. Drew really got into opening up the gifts. Nana and Papa spoiled him with a pull along puppy, the Little People barn and a cool Radio Flyer bike. Today we sat and watched the Packers loose and the snow fall out the window. Luckily we have no where to go today!!! Tomorrow it is Christmas at the Oberweiser's and Christmas day with the Bongers. This is going to be so much fun!

Happy Halloween!

Drew was a ham at the pumpkin patch! He got to stomp through the mud and play with all the pumpkins. We ended up getting four pumpkins - they were all good ones! Drew also was able to pick his first apple. To our surprise he put it right up to his mouth and took a bite! It was a yummy apple and Sprangers Orchard didn't charge us for it!

On Halloween Drew dressed up as Spiderman/Giraffe. I had two outfits for him. An indoor Spidy costume from Grandma and a cold weather Giraffe outfit for over the top. He sure was a cutie! On Halloween day Drew went to his daycare for a party and nap, then we went to Nordon where he flirted with the ladies. After that we went to visit Nana and help give out candy. There wasn't may trick-or-treaters so we got to spend lots of time with Nana's special toys.

I will post some costume photos when I get them downloaded....

This photo is part of a session I did to commemorate Drew's first birthday. I would love to take photos of him near all the neat doors I see around town.

Walking in the Park

We had fun last weekend after Drew's haircut we went to the park to enjoy the warm weather. Drew was showing off walking all over the place. We all got a little wet from the wind blowing the fountain.

Autumn Greetings

Autumn Greetings, originally uploaded by Ardent Photography.

Drew is turning one in a couple of weeks. I love him more and more everyday.

He is starting to learn to "turn it on" for the camera. I can't wait to see what kind of photo adventures we will share! He is my little doll.

Catch up time!

This post is long over due! I have been so busy with weddings, babies and high school seniors that I can't find time to keep Drew's blog updated. I have been taking snapshots of Drew and here are some of the highlights. To print any photo please click on the photo and download the file to your computer.

Up north on Papa's lap with Autumn and Laci. Doesn't Papa look proud? Daddy took Drew up north all by himself. Drew had a lot of fun laughing at Aunt Trish and eating steak and corn! I got to travel in the pouring rain to Lake Geneva for a wedding job on Saturday and on Sunday I took advantage of being without child and went bargain hunting. I must say I really missed him and he missed me.

This was the day we took Drew to the doctor for the very first time for a "sick visit". Doesn't look sick does he? He had his first ear infection. The doctor was very impressed that he had not been in for a sick visit and was 10.5 months old. Another benefit from nursing!

I finally gave in and let him dig in the cupboards. This is the cupboard that we keep the cookie sheets and such. I've since replaced them with rubbermaid containers... of course this isn't as fun as the metal hitting the floor!

Drew's new thing is to help give Mommy Cheerios. He thinks it is so funny to "share". The O's are usually wet and slimy but it is sweet to see his face light up when you act like you are really hungry for one!

While waiting for Dwamma (aka Grandma), Drew fell asleep in Daddy's arms. This was Drew's first trip up north with Grandma an Grandpa all by himself! I had a wedding in Lake Geneva and Daddy got some work done on the studio. Drew had a lot of fun up north and was reported to have been a very good boy!

Daddy gave Drew a container to play with. Drew got creative and decided to wear it on his head. An instant fav! Make sure to view the lower of the two photos, his face is a "classic" Andy face!!!

More books! This photos is just too cute, had to add for Nana and Grandma!

See a theme? He really does like books! This one is his favorite (also from Aunt Jen) he really studies the pages!

Daddy and Drew with the Dinosaur book....

July 15, 2007
This is what the Drewbert looks like right out of the tub. He is a little burrito in his towel. I've spared you of the photos of his little tushie in the tub. He usually has one rubber ducky in his mouth while trying to grab the other ones to put in his mouth.

Drew loves getting his ears wet! His cousin Autumn never liked that so I've been laying him on his back when he gets his bath so he gets used to the water and the feeling it has on his ears. Drew will also be starting swimming class again this fall. Yup, he is the boy in class that splashes all the other kids. What a bruiser!

July 8, 2007
Drew just loves books! He is so into turning the pages. This was a special moment that he actually sat down to read the whole thing! This book about Dinosaurs is from Aunt Jen - thanks!!!
