5 months

Drew turned five months old yesterday. He is such a happy little guy. He rolled over last week, or was it the week before? for the first time, back to front. He is rolling to his side quite often and likes to sleep that way. His tear ducts seem to be developed and no longer blocked and his eyes are no longer goopy or look sore. This is SO SO SO EXCITING!

I don't know why, but we all like to call him Drew-Bee (I capitalized the B since we are saying his first name combined with his middle initial) these days. I think calling babies and kids something with an e sound at the end of their name is just more fun. :-) We also like to call Carter, Cart-ee. But, often these days he corrects us and says his name is Carter. He's growing up fast, that one.

At his 4 month appointment he was still HUGE and healthy. 17 lbs (82%), 27 inches (96%), 43 1/2 cm head (77%). Where is he getting his height?

It was the sweetest thing I've ever heard. He then asked me to come sit by them and said I was his best friend too. Talk about melt your heart. Love these boys SO MUCH! 2013-02-28_18-22-00_173 This almost four year old is so big and smart! Can't get enough of all our conversations! Everything he eats, he eats most or some of, and always says he wants to "save it for later." I'm constantly finding things in the fridge he puts in there for later. So funny. 2013-02-26_18-27-28_909 2013-02-17_09-11-09_741 Goofy Mom and boys self pics 2013-02-28_18-28-35_894 2013-02-28_18-27-52_233 2013-02-28_18-26-40_264 2013-02-28_18-26-36_962
