11: The Story of your...
12: BIRTH CERTIFICATE | I labored with Drew all night on July 28th. At 4AM I got up to stretch because I thought I was having cramps. It was contractions! I took a shower, woke up daddy and got our bags together. We took Dean to Grandma Jane's house on our way to the hospital. When we got to the hospital I was dilated to six centimeters. MoMo came a few minutes later. We couldn't have planned your birth any better!

He brings the pacifier when he cries, wants to hold his brother, and kisses and hugs him. He says "Awww baby brudder." Drew couldn't have it better. In mid August Drew is holding his head up, waking 2-3 times a night and spitting up.
