Costume Parade & Drew is 1 week old!

I feel like I need to apologize for the massive amounts of pictures and numerous posts that I have made lately. I just don't want to forget a minute of these precious days with my sweet boys. I also want to make sure that all of our family and friends feel like they are a part of our boys' lives. So.... here goes another LONG post. (Sorry!) :)

Today was Costume Parade day at Clayton's preschool. It was mass chaos and super fun all rolled into one! God bless those sweet preschool teachers - I don't know how they have the energy to keep up with all those kiddos!

We think that the eye holes-on-the-forehead is a good look for Captain America.

Clayton came home with this super cute art project. If you look closely, you can see that they made the pumpkin out of footprints. Seriously - attempting footprints with 12 3-year-olds?!?! These teachers are saints!

Now I'll turn the spotlight over to my sweet Baby Drew... Drew is 1 week old today!!! I can hardly believe that his first week of life is over. I could just cry thinking about it. My saving grace is knowing that it just gets even better with time.
Drew continues to be a wonderful baby. He LOVES his swing and is so alert after feedings. He is a sound sleeper and manages to snooze right through his big brother's loud talking and playing. We took him back today for a repeat bilirubin level and it was normal - praise the Lord! We get to stop supplementing him with formula and back off on the "sunbathing." Yipee! We had a little fall photo shoot in the front yard to celebrate Drew's 1 week birthday...
Isn't he precious in his pumpkin hat & onesie?!?!

An attempt at a picture with both boys - even more difficult than I had imagined it would be.
Our sweet friend, Leah, brought Clayton a Big Brother goody bag tonight. He couldn't wait to bust out the silly string. It was a BIG hit!

Photographing 2 kids at once does get easier soon : ) I'm so glad Drew's bili level is down. That must have been stressful!

Thank you for letting us share somewhat in the lives of our precious grandchildren. The pictures and your commentary are wonderful.
I knew Drew would be back to normal, but it is comforting to see in black and white the confirmation.

Thanks for posting that picture of your silly string cutie! I am glad he enjoyed it!
