Our engagement photo.
Anyway, I took a few pics the other day and decided to find some of Jakob and Joshy when they were about the same age, just to compare. In my opinion, Drew looks more like Jakob did at this age than Joshy...but we all know how much they change! We still can't determine what color his eyes are...maybe green, or blue. There isn't much brown in them, but they are very dark. We'll see!
He is a happy little guy, still pretty mellow and such a sweetie. He smiles and coos at us and it's just the cutest thing ever. I love my boys!
Drew at 7 weeks
Jakob at about 6 weeks
Joshy at 6 weeks
Who do you think he resembles most?

Some of you may remember a couple of months ago I mentioned that I was going to jump right in and try to potty train Joshy before the baby was born. Well, unfortunately that didn't happen because right after I decided to do that, both of my grandfathers passed away within a 2 week period and we were traveling alot - which is not conducive to potty training. So, I put it off, and then when we only had 5-6 weeks left before the baby came, I decided that it wouldn't be worth it to even start because it would probably all go down the tubes (no pun intended) once the baby came. So, now the baby is here and Joshy is pretty much potty training himself. It's great! He's about half-way there. So, here's a picture of the proud boy...he loves doing things "just like Jakob!" It's great to have a big brother to look up to!
Have a card sent out to the troops.
They don't ask for personal information, just your first name, state, and home town.
If you go to this web site, www.LetsSayThanks.com you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is serving in Iraq . You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services. How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! This is a great site. Please send a card. It is FREE and it only takes a second. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? Whether you are for or against the war, our guys and gals over there need to know we are behind them...
I got a little teary-eyed just looking at all the handmade card designs. They are all made by kids and are just amazing. Check it out!
side note: Drew turned 1 month old yesterday...and I can't believe how fast it's going by and how fat the little guy is getting. Yes. Fat. He has a double chin. CUTE!
So, I guess the fact that I've made it this far and am just now having psychotic moments is probably a good thing.
I hope you're all having a "normal" and "fun" weekend!
