Drew Update!!

Drew had a doctor's appointment today! It was his 6 month check-up - a little late but I like this one doctor and waited until I could get an appointment with him. Drew did GREAT!!! The doctor is quite impressed with his alertness and inquisitive looks! He was also impressed with his size! He now weighs 18 lbs. 2 oz. But that is actually in the 50th percentile! So he is completely NORMAL!!! He is 26 inches long - that's in the 25th percentile - so he is SHORT! But Andy isn't worried - he thinks he'll grow up nice and tall! Time will tell!

He isn't quite sitting up on his own. Andy made a comment the other day that trying to sit Drew up was like posing Jell-O! I thought that was pretty funny - and accurate! But the Dr. says he is close to getting there and will likely be cruising before we know it!
Drew made it through the vegetables carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, green beans, and peas. He isn't really fond of green beans! He shudders when he eats them - it's pretty funny to watch. He started bananas this week and LOVES them! He is really enjoying food! The kids are really excited he's eating food and can't wait until he can try some real food. Daniel has been funny wondering what baby food tastes like - I let him try the bananas - he liked them! But he says he'll stick to the real thing.
Life continues to be busy - full of appointments and other commitments. I really can't wait until we can settle into a normal routine. September really can't get here fast enough! Though the kids aren't terribly excited about full days of school. I think we just need to get into a routine and then we'll all be a bit happier. Life seems scattered and out of control - but we are getting through it and will really appreciate the calm that fall/ winter brings!
