Brewers Game

We took Drake to his first baseball game the other day and he loved it! He had so much fun. Every time the crowd cheered he would clap and scream (excitedly). It was so cute! We will definitely be taking him back at least one more time this year.


Out in front of the ball park.

Before the game Drake found my hair stuff. He really liked my headbands. Man, with him liking my headbands and my shoes ... should I be worried? haha!

Wauwatosa Springtime

Spring is here in Wisconsin and Drake has been loving the warm weather. We try to take him to parks or on walks when it is warm enough and he loves every minute of it. He loves going out so much that we don't say "outside" around Drake, instead we spell it out otherwise he will nag us to go until we actually do. He is learning so much everyday and is beginning to put phrases together and make some object associations. When he wants to go "side" (outside), he ask for "shoooooooe" (because he needs shoes to go outside, right?). He also knows what an apple is, but he also thinks that everything in our fruit bowl is also an apple including oranges, pears, limes, and lemons. If you ask him to say orange, he will say apple.....but at least he's making an association! These are a few pictures of Drake playing or putting on some shoes to get ready to go outside.

This is how the slide works, right?


Ready to go!

So the other night Drake decides it is a good idea to go face first off the coach onto a blanket. He is so weird! He thought it was so funny that he just kept doing it over and over again. He is constantly climbing on things and is never afraid of getting down (or falling down). I swear he is going to grow up to be a daredevil or stunt double or something like that. Scary!

This isn't Drake's funny face at its best but it is so funny, I had to post it. He gets this super serious, mad face and then lifts his head up and opens his eyes to a big smile. I don't know why this started but it is hilarious. It is usually a lot bigger and more elaborate but I think you guys will get the jist of it.

Here is Drake telling a story (I'm not really sure if it is a funny story or a scary story due to the growling) in his favorite corner. I swear he is always talking or squealing or growling so here is a taste of what I get all day, every day.

Easter and such ...

Warning: picture overload may occur - I hope you like looking at my Drakey.

It feels like a ton has happened lately but in reality that isn't true. We did have some visitors!!! My mom, sister and her two girls surprised me and showed up on my doorstep! Drake had so much fun with them but was asking for his Papa the whole time. We had so much fun and were thankful that they braved the Wisconsin cold (really it was nice weather while they were here but my mom was freezing, haha). I only have a couple pictures of them because Teisa (or "sasa" as Drake says) took most of the pics and therefore are on her camera in Utah. I really should be better at remembering to take pictures.

Emie (Ewe), Bayla (baby) and Drake. Drake was so sweet to Bayla. All he wanted to do was give her kisses and hugs. He isn't normally a "soft" kid but with her he was super soft. Bayla wasn't super loving the kisses every 5 seconds though.

Drake and Emie playing. They did really well playing with each other. Of course there were some sharing issues but they were few and far between. I was so happy that Drake got to spend some time with my family but it made me so sad that he doesn't get to spend more time with them. It is a good thing that skype was invented but we can't wait to see everyone again. Hopefully this summer!

Here are some random pics:

Drake loves climbing things - here are few of him climbing into his toy basket and drawer. He also now climbs onto the couch and chairs all by himself. He is starting to try to climb into the bath by himself - he is just so curious and adventurous.

This is how I found Drake one morning when he woke up. Haha, it looks like he is in jail.

Here are my boys supporting the Brewers. They are so handsome!

I thought I would add one of my and my little mister. He wasn't as happy to take a picture with me like he was with his daddy.

Easter was a lot of fun. We went to our friends house in the morning for brunch and an Easter egg hunt. Then we had dinner with our neighbors. Drake had a lot of fun finding eggs, here is him with his loot.

The Easter bunny didn't forget about Drake! Here was super excited to see all of his goodies.

My mom gave Drake this lawn mower while she was here for his Easter present. He loves it but tends to mostly sit on it and scoot around. He is so funny.
