Happy Birthday Drew!!

I can't believe that our little Drew Bear is 1. (Drew Bear is the nickname Addison gave Drew.) This year has flown by and we have loved every minute with our little Drew. Drew is the sweetest little baby and I love her easy going personality(she rarely gets upset). We feel so blessed to have her be a part of our family.

Here are some things about Drew at 1.

She army crawls everywhere. Just this week she finally has started to crawl and pull herself up to the furniture. She likes to stand and her favorite place to stand is by the stairs. She gets really excited for breakfast, lunch and dinner, she loves to eat, and will pretty much eat anything we are eating. She likes music and she will start to bounce to the beat. Whenever she thinks she is funny or does something funny she will put her hand over her mouth. She loves giving us hugs. Drew loves to wave. She still is a really good sleeper, she sleeps in until 9:00.

Here is how Drew is measuring up these days.

Height: 29 inches (50%)
Weight: 18.13 (15%)
I was a little surprised to see that she was still under 20 pounds.
Tim says with those checks how could she not weigh more.

Here are just a few pictures we took of Drew.

As you can see she is still not loving the bows.
Now on to her party.

This year since we were at Bear Lake on Drew's actually birthday I decided we would celebrate it with family when we got home that following Monday. Since my mom's birthday was Monday I had asked her if she would mind sharing her birthday with Drew. She was excited and thought it would be fun to share her birthday with her. I had set everything up at my parents for a little dessert for their birthdays.

Happy Birthday Mom and Drew!

One last summer trip to Bear Lake and the Fair...

I am a little late posting this, but a couple weeks ago we headed up to Bear Lake with some of our friends, the Konolds and the Mabeys. Between our three families, we had 9 girls and no boys! It was fun to see all of the girls play so well together, and we had a really good time. We enjoyed playing games, going to the beach, going to the pool, playing the wii, and just hanging out. We took an unintentional break from taking pictures for most the weekend, but here are the few that we did get of the kiddos at the lake:

While we were at Bear Lake Drew turned 1!! We bought a little cake and that was the first of many celebrations for her first birthday. Drew absolutely loved it when we sang Happy Birthday to her.

Saturday we packed up and headed to Tremonton to go to the Fair. Addison loved going on the carousel, and Tim had to pry her fingers from the bar to get her off. It was fun to walk around with Tim's family and to run into some of our friends. On Sunday Tim's mom made a yummy dinner and made some homemade cream puffs for Drew. Once again you can see she loved having us sing Happy Birthday to her.

Thanks to our family and friends for making this weekend trip so much fun!
