We're back!

Well, we never really went anywhere, just got busy with Drew's arrival and the holidays.  BUT, we are back online now and I'll be updating lots more frequently in 2011 hopefully!!

So, to catch up with us...

Andrew James was born September 21, 8 days early.  He was 7lbs, 8oz and 19 1/2 inches long, born just before 10am.  He was easy from the get go and is our little happy sunshine.  He is always smiling and has started laughing.  It's the cutest!  Wade is a great big brother and loves Drew.  I think as Drew grows more and is more interactive, he and Wade will have such a great time together.  Wade already likes to give him his paci and make him smile, although he will tell me when it's time to put "Drew down" so that I can play with him instead!

My sweet boys!
Wade turned 2 on November 14th and we had a really fun party for him complete with all his playgroup friends and a monkey bounce house in the back yard!  Check him out wanting to eat his pizza like a big boy with his pal Owen...

Jumping with Daddy!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving - I cooked a meal for us here this year and we enjoyed having our dinner at home! My first turkey turned out well and Wade even ate with us and did great with trying a little of most everything ;)

Chillin with Santa
Not so happy about Santa
Christmas was SO much fun this year.  Wade loves presents and wanted to open all of them, Daddy's included.  Wade got a lot of really great toys this year - a play kitchen from Mema and Pop Pop and a cozy coupe car from Mimi and Granddad ("Din Din").  Aunt Meg gave him a special lunch with Elmo that we're looking forward to in January and his aunties and uncle gave him such great toys to play with and some super cute new clothes.  Drew was also spoiled this year with lots of cute clothes and fun toys.  He surprised us by rolling over for the first time (from front to back) on Christmas morning and has since started getting really good at it.  How fast all of this is happening!  I truly can't believe how fast they are growing up (sniff)!

Looking forward to a happy, healthy, FUN 2011!!  Happy New Year :)
