Baby Drew!

As you may have guessed from the lack of postings here for the past 9+ months, the baby has arrived! And he has been keeping me very, very busy!

Andrew Allen (nickname Drew) was born on August 29th, 2011 at 7:30 am.  He has brought an incredible amount of joy into our lives, we are so blessed!

It’s hard to catch up on 9 months in one post, but here are a few pictures.

He started off tiny, just 6 pounds, 14 ounces!

One month old, with Daddy.

One of his first smiles

Drew was a banana for Halloween… and Brett scared all of the neighborhood kids in his gorilla costume

Our first Christmas. It was strange for Brett and I to not spend the holiday with our families, but we started new traditions with our little family of three (plus Izzy!)

Drew just keeps getting bigger… and cooler…

My handsome Valentine.

He loves to play ball, and can now roll over both ways and is starting to crawl!

Bath time is always fun. We have tons of rubber ducks!

He’s getting better with eating solids. This is what happens when I let him hold the spoon.

We spend a lot of time at our neighborhood pool. It’s the only way to survive this Texas heat.

And here is his 9 month picture. He has six teeth so far and weighs over 20 pounds!

So there you have it! I have tons of better pictures, these all came from my phone, but our good computer (and all my pictures) is out of commission for the moment. Figured I should get this post up when I had the time and motivation.

My plan is to post more regular updates, and hopefully to get back into cooking/baking too.  We also recently planted a big vegetable garden so I’m going to try to keep track of the progress here too.

Oh and Izzy is doing well. She has gotten used to the idea of a new family member, and likes to lick Drew’s feet. He adores her, it’s really sweet to see.



  1. I randomly checked your site today and was happy to see an update! Drew’s so cute and I look forward to seeing more on the Life with Bs site 🙂

  2. Great post Sarah, weird to see Drew grow up in a timeline like that! -Brett (the big B)
