My almost 1-yr-old


It's hard to believe that my little Drew is almost 1!!! At first I felt like time was moving along at a nice slow pace, but then in the blink of an eye it was already October and I was left thinking, "What happened!!??!!??" He is such a sweet, mellow kid...I just absolutely adore him and all of his funny scrunched-nose faces...he's definitely got character...just maybe a bit more reserved than Jakob and Joshy. Well, we'll see if he stays that way!


He officially took his first steps on September 28th, over at my cousin Kay's house. We were very excited...but he hasn't been too interested in walking here at home. He will walk if you hold his hands, and he walks around furniture, holding onto the wall, etc...and he goes pretty fast with his little walker too! So far I think he just realizes he can go much faster crawling...so that's what he does!


If you say "Hello!" he will put his hand up to his ear and make a talking noise (like he's on the phone), and if you say "Bye-bye" he waves to you. We've been trying to teach him to cover his eyes to play peek-a-boo, but we haven't gotten there just yet. He does however love to put his head on the ground and look up at you under his legs, like this:






When there is a nice breeze, I like to leave our front door open, but I put a gate across the steps to keep Drew from escaping...this is what he was doing yesterday afternoon while I was in and out doing laundry:




And he eventually figured out how to slide open the screen in the kitchen to escape...


Oh, I almost forgot...Drew is really quick to grab things from you, so one day while I was buckling him into his carseat, he grabbed my sunglasses off my face and I said something about him being a "quick draw." Since then, Jakob likes to call him Andrew James "Quick-grabber" Hanson. :) Gotta love nick names from big brothers!
