Silly (crying) Drew

Matt and I always laugh at Drew...when she gets fussy, she says "ooh-ghee". We tease and say that it is her first word. Granny says it is because I call her "Mommy's boogie" all the time. She kept saying it over and over last night. We finally caught it on video (even tough it's not that good).

1 month check up

Drew went to the doctor yesterday for her one month check up. She was 8lbs 7oz and 20 1/4 inches long. The doc said she is in the 10th percentile for height and 20th percentile for weight- I guess she is just going to be petite!! She did said that for her height, her weight is good, she's not too chunkie...lol She said that Drew does not have colic, like we thought she might have. She said that we may be feeding her too much, causing her upset tummy. She said that we should not feed her more often then every 3-4 hours and to continue giving her 3-4 oz- no more. She said that her tummy is still very little since she is so small and that anything over 4 oz may be too much at this point. We don't go back to the docs until next month when she will get her first set of shots :0( Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers, especially since I will be returning to work in a very short week and a half :0(

Drew's first Easter was yesterday. Pap and Granny came down and we all went to church. This was Drew's first time at church. She was an angel! She slept the entire time, only woke up before Sunday School when she was hungry, then back to sleep. After church Matt's dad joined us for Easter dinner (Matt's mom had the flu). We had a great dinner: ham, chicken casserole, mashed potatoes, veggies, sweet potato casserole, rolls, cherry cheesecake, hot fudge cake, etc. Later in the day, aunt Erin came by for a visit. Matt's cousin David and his girlfriend Carrie and her daughter Mackinzie also came by later in the day. All in all...it was a great day!!

Drew passed out while I tried a new burp method on her...Uncle Jeremy says, "Strawberry Shortcake has fallen and can't get up." ha ha
Me and my 2 girls...Drew and Layla
Drew fell asleep while I was feeding her.

Drew is 3 weeks old


Hi everyone! I just wanted to write everyone and send out some new pics of the little muchkin. She turned 3 wks old yesterday. This is somewhat sad for me since that means I have to go back to work in 3 more weeks. It is going to be so hard to leave her!! Drew is doing much better! No more bili light or heel sticks! She is so much more alert. I did make the decision this week that since she still was not nursing (still not sucking properly) and I was still having to pump and bottle feed her, that she is now a formula baby. It was a very hard decision for me to make (especially since I am so pro breastfeeding) , but in the end I know we will all be happier! Someone very wise told me that Happy mommy= happy baby! And man were they right!!! She already seems to be doing so much better. She sleeps more sound and eats about every 3-4 hrs. I think she is finally starting to gain weight, or atleast her clothes are fitting her better. Anyway, I will quit rambling on about her...Hope you all enjoy the pics!

Much love,
Britt

1st enjoyable bathtime


This evening Matt and I decided to give Drew a bath. This was a milestone for her: Her 1st enjoyable bathtime. She just sat there all wide eyed and didn't cry. Pay close attention to the pics after bathtime...Our little baby bird (aka bir head, which Daddy was also known as for the 1st year of his life) Drew's hair stands on end after a bath. Mommy even got a pic of Drew with her new shades on...
