Our Itty Bitty Niece...Drew

Just a few short weeks ago (as in less than 3) our newest niece was born. Drew Olivia Menz. She was born to my brother and s.i.l. on June 3. Seriously she is the sweetest little thing and we are so in love with her. My s.i.l. writes her own blog (which is quite fab) and where you can read up more on their little darling. It really is fun watching your little brother become a dad!

Yesterday I got to spend a little time with Drew as Lyndsay had a few errands to run. It was really fun and Hudson couldn't stop watching her. It was if he was saying, 'what is that mommy'. Of course me, Drew's 'paparazzi aunt' couldn't wait to take out the camera and get some pictures of her!

Rolling With My Homey...

Yesterday we had a lot of fun hanging out with our friend Landon. Landon is my best friend Marissa's little man and Hudson and him are only 4 weeks apart. I know they will grow up to be great buddies. Both boys look just like their daddy's as you can see from the pictures below. 

It's been pretty hot around here so the boys played in the water for a little bit. Marissa has this adorable 'splash.pad' that was just perfect for our little guys. It was a nice way to stay cool. 

Of course I took a million photos but here are some favs from the day.

You Have To Start Some Where

It's been almost a year but I want to keep this up and mostly to help me remember all the little details of our family growing and my baby boy growing up. So 'you have to start some where' and here is where I start (again)...
It's summer and our little man, Hudson, has just turned 7 months old. One thing that prompted this post is that he has just figured out how to 'rasberry' over and over. It is super cute and super wet! The second prompting is that my S.I.L. over at Making.A.Menz just blogged about her 'birth story' of my newest little niece Drew and it makes me sad b/c I have already forgotten so much about my own. Here is to trying my best to write a few post a week! Before I go here are a few pictures of my little guy
