More Firsts

Over the past couple of weeks Drew has had many more firsts.

He finished his first week of swim school.. He did more crying than swimming, but only because mommy wasn't in the pool with him.

He had his first (and please God, only) surgery, tubes in his ears.  The surgery lasted literally 5 minutes.  The hardest part was keeping him preoccupied from food for the two hours we had to wait until they took him back.  He woke up fairly happy from the anesthesia, and we were home by 9:30am.

He's learned new animal sounds. Braloo for elephant, roar for lion, and buzz for bee.  I know.  What's the big deal?  Well, it's the cutest thing ever.

He goes around the house like baby Stewie from Family Guy saying "Mommy. Mommy, Mommy.  Mommy.  Mommy. Mommy.  Mommy.  Mommy. Mommy. Mommy. Mommy. Mommy. Mommy.  Mommy.  Hi."

His newest words/sayings are "hot', "tractor", "caterpillar", and "I get you."  He doesn't actually pronounce the latter two, but from his tone and syllables you can make it out.

And he now has an affirmative response for questions you ask him....

Me-  Drew, do you want to go outside and swing?

Drew- YAY!

Me-  Drew, Do you want a snack? 

Drew- YAY!

And what is definitely the MOST sweetest thing ever.... when Danny or I pick him up to hold him, Drew will pat our chest and say a perfectly clear ...
