Andrew Coy David....8 weeks old!

Our son. Our third child here on earth. Beautiful, calm, easy going baby of the family. Mama's little man. Daddy's buddy. Claire & Lily's baby doll. I love to watch you with your sisters. With Claire you smile and coo and try so hard to interact with her. She calls you her, "sweet sweet drew" and runs to your every cry. With Lily you kindly tolerate her rough loving! She loves you so much but she just doesn't know how to be gentle! =) We are teaching her though and she is becoming a great big sister, too. Very protective of her baby Drew! =)
I love to watch you lay in your bassinet and stare at your mobile. You love the Bach and Beethoven settings and the nature sounds of crickets and birds. You are most definitely mama's boy! Classical music is what I love best when I have a bad headache and I could go to sleep under the stars any night! You are so cute when you move your fists and feet and try to talk to the crickets!
Daddy's nickname for you is "chigger" just as he calls Claire "cricket" and Lily "lightening bug". You are chigger. And it fits you so well! =)
You are eating every 3 hrs. just about right on the dot and you take about 3 -1 & 1/2 hr. naps every day. You eat about 8 pm. go to sleep, wake up at 11:00 pm, eat, and sleep through until about 6 or 7 am. You are an excellent sleeper! Which helps Mama feel so much better and I am able to function so much better with good sleep. =)
Drew, you are just a very good, laid back baby. You bring a lot of peace to our lives. You are just so good and content most of the time! =) We love you, so much, Drew-bear, chigger, and we can't wait to see what wonderful plans our Lord has for your life! It is such a blessing to be your mother!
Lots and lots and lots of love,
Your Mommy
*the other day, we were in the grocery store and a man stopped us and said, "you certainly have a quiver full" "it is so nice to see people who are joyful with their children, you seem like very good parents". It felt so good to hear someone praise us for having children instead of the usual looks and even rude comments we get sometimes because our children are so close in age. I just wanted to share that to encourage all of you that have children. There are people that notice your hard work and even though that is not what's important (that people notice) it feels good to know that there are kind people out there who understand all of your hard work is for a purpose. Anyway, I just wanted to share that. It made my day! =)
