At 6 weeks now, we are STILL waiting for Drew's smile to emerge. We've seen it in his sleep, but he's quite somber during the awake hours. Of course, Grant was this way. And look at him now! Mr. Silly Pants for sure. We'll appreciate the smiles even more when they come!
This week I made a trip to the ER, worried that I might be experiencing the RETURN OF THE BLOOD CLOTS! But, my lungs were clear. I was just extremely sore from all the nighttime hours attempting to sleep with Drew in my arms. Weird positions, EXTREME exhaustion and a hungry baby are not a good combination. We are in the midst of watching the entire series of LOST, which probably causes more loss of sleep than the baby does. It's our own fault, I know!
I can hardly wait for General Conference next weekend, where we will hear the words of our Prophets! We will also be blessing little Drew in our home on Sunday. Great pictures to come of ALL the family with this little guy! Next week...pictures of the house (as per request from our GV6th friends)

Funny story about Clark.. (I do have 4 other children, who have adjusted quite nicely to the move, by the way). I handed Clark a cookie from Ikea in the car the other day. You know the ones that are round, with a round dollup of chocolate in the middle? Anyway, I handed it to him, and he said "Wow...these are well designed!"
One more funny... our John is known for having one volume...LOUD! NO matter how much you ask him to speak sweetly or softly, he retreats back to his normal volume within seconds. Last Saturday, while we were setting up the trampoline, I heard John yelling at full voice about something...right afterwards, Clark said (in a yelling voice himself) "John! You do not have to yell as loud as a fire engine!" Well said, buddy!
