Welcome!!! Our second child was born this past June. He is the sweetest baby BOY! Once we found out we were having a boy and decided on his name he got the nickname “Baby Drew” so you will often hear me call him that, or my newer nickname since he has been born is “Big Guy” because well………he’s a BIG boy! A little about Drew, well he is named after his father, my husbands name is Andrew. His middle name is Lawrence, in honor of his late Papa, my father. Drew is only two months old so I don’t know much about his personality yet but he’s the typical boy who is high maintenance but will smile at anyone who talks baby to him! I look forward to learning each and every thing about this sweet baby boy of mine. This is where I will be writing to my son as I share with him the joys and the not-so-joys of raising him in this crazy but wonderful family of mine! I hope some day he can look back on these letters and realizes how much love I’ve put into them…….and maybe he’ll forgive me for the embarrassing ones! Thank you for reading these letters to Drew.

Dear Drew, My sweet baby boy, You are growing in leaps and bounds and since you are at my favorite age right now I'm having such an emotional ride through these days because you are our last baby. All of your firsts have become lasts for your Mommy. You have mastered rolling over, you are officially all over the place,  you are getting so much better and more interested in eating solids, I just couldn't be more proud of you. Your favorite foods right now are anything that turns to mush, breads, waffles, rice cakes, you are loving Daddy's grilled cheese's and your most favorite are graham crackers! You just smile and giggle through the whole snack!! I can honestly tell you that letting you eat solids gradually and letting you figure it out has been the best decision I've ever made. I

Dear Drew, Where do I begin little buddy. The time is flying and I don't like it one bit. This is by far my favorite age. I remember it like it were yesterday with your big sister and now it's your turn. To discover the world! You've realized that your hands are attached to you and that you have control over them! You've found your feet, you are now putting all of your toys in your mouth and my favorite of all time......your beginning to discover food! Yes food buddy!! I'm so excited for this next step my love. Before we talk about food let's talk about the last few months. They've been tough I won't lie, not because of you though, just because it's Winter and your sister is a walking germ right about now and has brought home many many viruses to our home. Mommy brought you to the ER a

Dear Drew – Month 3 & 4

Hi My Little Man! You are getting so big I can hardly stand it! You are slowly creeping to my very favorite age.....a stage that I adored with your sister and I'm equally enjoying it with you. 5 months to 12 months. Why is this my favorite stage or age? A few reasons, one because yes you sleep through the night now (YES!!) but the best reason is because it's when you start to discover well............life! Yes you stare in amazement at everyone who talks to you on a daily basis. Your big sister the most, you watch her ever so closely, she runs around in the highest pitched voice but you watch her as she darts in and out of your vision. The dog and cats fascinate you as well, you watch them walk by, I can see what's running through your mind "What is that!!??" You now associate the

Dear Drew – Month Two

Dear Baby Drew, Yes you will most likely grow up with this little nickname that we gave to you since the day we found out that you were a baby boy! You see when Mommy was pregnant with you and didn't know you were a baby boy we called you "Baby F." Then when we found out we were expecting a boy it turned into "Baby Drew" Your big sister seems to love it so we've carried the name almost three months later. Today you turn three months old my little blessing. I didn't get to write to you after month one because........well it's been tough! You suddenly "woke up" and became a pretty miserable baby. Your big sister still starves for attention and their is always something that needs to be done around this big house we've come to love. I don't know why MM will do anything and everything to

Dear Drew – Your Birth Story

Dear Drew – Your Birth Story

You are finally here my love. I feel like I've waited forever to hold you. To touch your sweet face, hold your tiny fingers in mine, to whisper sweet loves into your ear. The day started like any other day. It was a Tuesday so your sister was home. Driving me nuts as usual, thank god I had Nunny and TT to help keep her busy! We left Nunny's apartment and walked (or waddled in my case) over to our house to put Madison in for a nap when I felt water drip down my leg. Since it wasn't followed by any contractions and it wasn't much I wasn't concerned. I called Nunny and Daddy to tell them, of course Daddy wanted me to call the Dr. ASAP because he was worried (that's what Daddy's do) however Mommy decided to lay down like she did everyday your big sister was home so she could rest and

Dear Drew & Madison-Count down is on!

Dear Drew & Madison, My sweet babies.........two words into this letter and I'm already teary eyed! All of our lives are about to change.......for the better of course but Momma is the Momma and she knows there are going to be some hurdles first. My heart is still breaking at the thought of having to share my love and affection Madison. It's all you've ever know. Mommy and Daddy's attention, all of Nunny, TT and Memere's attention. Soon you will be sharing that attention with your little brother. I have no doubts that you will come to love him, I have not one doubt that things will work out and we will be a family with all the love in the world, Momma is just not good with change. Hey at least I'm being honest. I get comfortable with the way things are and bam...........something

Dear Madison & Drew – Spring Has Sprung

Dear Madison & Drew, Hello my babies.......well Madison, your not quite the baby anymore. You are officially two and a half today! OMG! I've been going back on pictures a lot lately. You were such a chunky monkey. Gosh you were such a good baby. Each and everyday I see you grow inches I swear! Is it even possible for you to get more beautiful everyday? Yes it is my sweetheart. You are learning so much! One day while driving to school I said "Oh look at the yellow school bus!" You starting motioning with your arms and singing "The Wheels on the Bus go round and round...." I was instantly blown away. Instant tears to my eyes, yes I know it doesn't take much for mommy to tear up these days. I'm proud what can I say! Unfortunately I thought we had already reached the terrible twos

Nursery Ideas

Well for anyone who knows me........you know we are expecting a baby boy come the end of June, or so we hope!! :) When I was pregnant with my daughter, I had her nursery planned-visualized as you will, in my head from day one. I'm a girly girl, I love pink, purple and yellow. Butterflies, flowers and anything fluffy. Though I was more than thrilled to find out we were expecting a baby boy this time around, I just have no clue about "boy" things. Plus we have been busy, non-stop, go, go, go since day one of this pregnancy. Well here we are mid-April and we still have an empty nursery. I've been so wrapped up with dealing with the terrible two's, spending as much time as I can with my daughter, and just surviving that my poor baby Boy's room has been on the bottom of the list. Well this

Dear Madison and Drew

Dear Madison and Drew, God I love that sound of that. I don't know what it is, but I love it! I figured I'd include Baby Drew in on this one since we are working on getting you (Madison) ready for the arrival of your baby brother. It's scary. Oh so scary for us (well not so much daddy because he doesn't seem to worry about things until they happen) but for Mommy, well I'm scared. Scared of the change, scared of having two little ones to care for now, scared that you wont' take to a little baby being here taking up all of your attention. Like everything else in life I know that it'll come with time, however it's "that time" that scares me the most! When Mommy first found out about you Drew, I was so concerned for your big sister, I was worried she wouldn't get the attention she

Loving Two

Loving Two

When I first found out we were expecting I immediately was consumed with guilt. YES GUILT.....the guilt of having to share my love with another child. I know it comes naturally, I know that a mother's love is endless and there is always room to share, I know all of this, but I still felt this ache in my heart every time I spend time with my Madison. I still glance at her from time to time and wonder if I'll ever miss this time, if I'll ever miss the time alone with her. People say I won't, people say that I'll still make alone time with Madison and life will just happen. I want to believe it, I do believe it. It's just more of the emotions I think any mother of one, expecting another goes through. I know this because I know plenty of people that are either pregnant and feeling the same
