Drew Rolls!

We knew he was getting close because it seemed like he'd be almost there and he just wouldn't quite make it over!  Then, mom called me at work to tell me had done it!!  When I went to pick him up that day, we tried but couldn't get him to repeat his trick.  I thought for sure mom was lying.  :) About a week later, she called again and said that he had rolled again and this time, she had my dad witness it.  So again, I go to pick him up and we try again and...nothing!!

A few days after that, Drew was having some tummy time and all of sudden, he rolled himself over and continued to roll himself over like he had been doing it his whole life for the rest of the day.  Now he will only do it when he absolutely feels like it.  We think he forgets from one day to the next!

For stats sake, Drew was 3 1/2 months old when he first rolled tummy to back.

Reading Time!!!

Drew and daddy love to read together!!

Look at that smile!

Even grandma got in on the action:

Bath Time!

And yep, the kiddo is way too big for the sink.  This was one of his last baths in the sink before moving to his big boy tub and I am so happy to have gotten a picture of it because bath time is one of my favorite times of the day!

Four Generations of Todd Men!!

These pictures deserve a special callout and their own post!  These pictures will be treasured by our family forever!

Drew Meets Great-Grandma and Grandpaw Todd!

Since Drew was born, Steve had been so anxious to take Drew to meet Grandpaw Todd so that he can get a picture of the four generations of Todd men.  Well, he got the opportunity when we took Drew up for Great-grandpaw Todd's birthday party!

It was a very warm day and I was worried how Drew would do but he did great!  We had a wonderful afternoon hanging out and spending time with Steve's grandparents and parents.  Steve's dad's friends Randy and Mary Millard were also there and had a fun time with Drew!

Here is great-grandma Todd meeting Drew for the first time:

Now for some pics!

We caught gramps blowing out his candles on tape:

After visiting with great grandma and grandpaw Todd, we headed over to Buffalo Wild Wings for a quick bite to eat before heading home.  Steve was thrilled to take his boy into bdubs for the first time because it's his favorite restaurant!  Again, Drew did great!  He pretty much snoozed the whole time we were there.  So proud of my little man!

annnnnnnnnd, he is spent!

All in all, it was a wonderful day and I was so glad we got to go up and hang with Steve's family!

Three Months Old!

I can't believe how much he has already changed!

Drew's Baptism

On May 23, 2010, we had Drew baptized at our church, Kensington Community Church.  It was such an important day for us as we were very excited to make a public declaration of our love for the Lord by promising to raise our son with Christian values.

The ceremony was everything we hoped it would be.  It was touching and beautiful and I wanted to cry a few times!  I am so thankful we have a church that we love and can't wait to raise our son in this church!

I am also so thankful to my sister Theresa and steve's cousin-in-law Jeff for being Drew's Godparents.  I truly believe in this day and age that you can never have too many positive role models in a young man's life and I know these two people will be just that for Drew!

Here is Drew in his baptism suit.  Look how cute!

Here is the part of the ceremony where Drew was baptized.  We were able to bring his entire family onto the stage during his baptism and I loved that!

Drew with his godparents, Theresa and Jeff:

After the ceremony, we had a small get together at my mom's house for Drew.  We had a great time celebrating with our family!

Annnnnd, finally, he is spent!  haha!
