4 years

That's how old my biggest baby is. He's 4. F-O-U-R. So weird to say that. And to type that.

Drew is such a special kid. He's so smart, it freaks us out a bit every so often. The kid can do 100 piece puzzles, all by himself. He beats me at Memory, which is hard to do because I've always been very good at it. He knows words to all these songs, and loves to sing. He knows all his letters, upper and lower case, can spell a few words and recognizes some, too, so he's very close to reading. He is one of the 'clowns' in his class, and loves to make his friends laugh. He's very independent, dresses himself every morning, plays well by himself, and goes right up to anybody on the playground to make friends. Clearly his mother's child. :) He LOVES his baby brother, except he calls him 'Baby' a lot, instead of Alex. The day before he turned 4 (about 6 hours before, actually), he fell running in the house (big no-no) and split his chin open. Got 3 stitches. It was our first trip to the emergency room, which I think is pretty good for a 4 year old boy who likes to do things on his own.

He's a precious boy, so tender and sweet, loves to snuggle with his Mama, but to rough-house with his Daddy, too. I love him so much, and thank him every day for making me a Mama!
