Deer Widow Weeked

This weekend was the start of gun season...which means, Luke is gone! Every year he goes away for about a week. :-( Usually I try to plan a trip with some of the women in his family; but this year it just didn't work out. So, Drake and I decided to go to Conway and see Gigi and Papa! We have had so much fun this weekend. Mom and I went shopping all day Saturday. We ended our day by going to Holiday House. It was so much fun! We had never been before. There were so many vendors there with lots of goodies to sell. My favorite purchase was a CD for Drake. It is a personalized Veggie Tales CD that puts Drake's name in the songs. I love it! I hope he will love listening to it as he gets older.

Drake is now 15 weeks old. He is the most precious baby boy in the world (but I'm a little bias). He has such a sweet personality. He smiles all the time...especially when we talk to him. I enjoy every minute with him. I never knew I could love someone this much. Luke and I are so blessed!

Here are a few things Drake is up to these days:

  • He sleeps 8 to 9 hours a night now.
  • We are still nursing (and finally LOVE it)
  • He's in the best mood when he wakes up in the morning (I think he's a morning person like his momma)
  • He is cooing and laughing a lot now
  • He blows bubbles ALL the time
  • He loves it when I kiss on his feet
  • His favorite place is in his mommy's arms
  • He LOVES bathtime!
  • He is 16 pounds and about 25 inches
  • He has started to reach for things and hold onto things (he wants everything in his mouth)
  • No teeth yet...but working on it
  • Drake's been to three football games already
  • He LOVES standing up
  • His mommy and daddy love him more than words can describe!

I will end this post with some pictures of Drake.
