4th of July weekend.. a little delayed!

Happy 4th of July! A couple weeks late...
Tradition continued with a pool party at Jack and Susie's house... complete with a margarita machine, cold beer, and pool basketball!
Drew is really loving the pool this summer... he has a Puddle Jumper and is a lot more independent in the pool with it.

I can't believe my sweet baby Cody is already 4 months... time flies!!! Love him!

Rangers Game!

We went to the Rangers game last week with both boys...we had NO clue what to expect (especially from Drew...would he love it? hate it?)
Aunt Marcia had this huge suite behind homeplate with all you can eat/ was quite the party! .... And Drew LOVED it! He was wonderful... it was our little mild-mannered Cody that flipped out! I think he was overstimulated to say the least...

Two of my boys wearing their Rangers hats!

Drew staring at the baseball field... so sweet!

Helping Daddy Out

Drew just LOVES to help Eric out in the yard. He has his own lawnmower, shovel, rake, etc. His favorite day of the week is yard work day! This evening they were picking weeds, shoveling mulch, etc.-- Drew was such a big helper! He just worships Eric... it is the cutest! We had to take our lawnmower to the "lawnmower doctor" (as Drew puts it), and had to borrow "Uncle Kiss's" (Chris's). Can't wait until he is older and actually doing the work FOR us! (like my dad made the three of us!)

San Antonio and Kiddie Park

I am a brave brave girl... flying with both boys by MYSELF to San Antonio for Andrea's baby shower and to visit friends and family! Besides a blowout on the plane (by got all over me and him...yuk!) it went fairly smooth.
Papaw got a riding lawnmower that Drew was obsessed with! My poor dad took him on at least 2 rides a day... one of them in 90+ degree heat for 30 minutes! That is true love!

My mom and I took the boys to Kiddie Park... a San Antonio tradition that has been open for over 70 years! Let's put it this way... my mom had birthday parties there when she was a little girl, and I had birthday parties there when I was little girl! It has been redone, but still has a great charm about it. Drew loved the rides and it is very "toddler appropriate"! I wish there was one in Frisco!

This ride actually goes really fast...

I think this is a cute picture of Drew before school one day. Sitting on the front steps waiting for daddy to get his coffee!

Owens Farm Playdate

Every other Monday, we have a playdate with a fun group of kiddos. Today we went to Owens Farm in Richardson and Drew loved the animals... horses, goats, chickens, geese, etc. Most of all, he loved the train and the tractor that pulled us on the hayride! It was a little hot out, but the kids had a great time!

Sunday adventure

The Preakness was on Saturday, and we all enjoyed looking at the horses on TV... but Drew seemed to REALLY love the horses! He would ask me for a horse, and I would say "go ask Daddy"... so he would go ask Eric for a horse (specifically, a BLUE horses). And back and forth all day. When he went to bed we finally said, "Ok, Drew... we will see the horses tomorrow." (thinking he would surely forget about the dang horses overnight). What is the first thing out of his mouth Sunday morning? HORSES! So living in the 'burbs as we do, there are two horses down the street. We load up the boys in the strollers and head down to the horses in scorching heat and humidity.

These are the beautiful horses...

And this is Drew's reaction when he saw the horses...

He freaked out!!! They came right up and let me pet them. Drew was on Eric's shoulders and still pansied out! So we decided Drew is "all talk"... he'll talk about the cool forklift or skid steer (yes, I know what those are...) next door and when we go up to the big ole machine he flips out! But he wouldn't stop talking about the horses. So... as said in my last post, I still needed to get Cody's two month pictures. We go to the nearby park, and this is the best picture we got...

This is typical of what we expected from Drew right now! Dropping his brother to pick his nose... gotta love it!

Cody turns 2 Months!

Sweet Baby Cody was 2 months yesterday! Time has flown by... he continues to be such a sweet laid back baby. Hopefully this weekend I will get some pictures of both the boys... Eric isn't keen on the idea of getting Cody's picture taken every month like I did with Drew. So now that I have a good camera, I get to take them!

We had Cody's 2 month well baby today. He weighed in at 12lb 6oz... a full pound heavier than his brother at this age! He got 4 shots, and I'm not going to lie... the nurses had to hand me a tissue because I hated seeing my little guy hurt like that! He has had a rather good day though aside from that! He is generally sleeping at night from 11:00-4:30a.m., and we moved him to his crib last night.

Drew is still sweet as can be, with occassional bouts of "NO MOMMY!" here and there. The doctor told me today that yes... this is a mix of the terrible two's mixed with his new brother joining the family. We give him lots of love and attention and just pray this attitude goes away soon enough. haha... We still have Gymboree on Fridays, and a playgroup that meets every other Monday. Grandma alternates watching Cody for a few hours one Wednesday, and having Drew the other... so Drew and I have a "date" day, where we go to the park, pool, etc. He loves it, and I love having some quality time with my buddy.
