34 Weeks, Our Drewsy Update

This guy is going through a tough time right now.  All four front teeth are coming in one right after the other.  Last Tuesday two had poked through and now the other bottom one is poking through.  The top one is close behind.  He is also learning to crawl.  All of this adds up to some irregular naps and a cranky baby...still.  I know I have said that the last several weeks, but it is what it is.  Some days he maxes out his three naps, some days he only sleeps half an hour for two of the naps.

You can't see his teeth in these pictures.  I'll have to get some in a week or so once they are out enough to see in pictures.
His favorite toys are things that roll, but especially cylinder-shaped things such as oatmeal containers.  In fact, that was the first time he did the Army crawl was chasing an oatmeal can around the kitchen just after his last blog update last Tuesday.  His first real crawl on hands and knees was to get Trinity, our cat.  She flopped down a little ways away and was swishing her tail all tempting-like at Drew.  So he took her challenge and went after it.  Funny thing is she let him grab her tail and shake it around.  I was waiting in the wings, ready to jump in if she got hurt or mad.  She never did though.   I guess Trinity has learned tolerance from her 6 1/2 years of babysitting.  Drew loves that kitty!

He has finally figured out how to actually suck on the sippy cup and is getting more water down each day.  This has made a huge difference in his constipation problem, and I am hoping that glycerin suppositories will stay in our past.  His new foods this week are graham crackers, a tiny bit of refried beans and guacamole (we were at a Mexican restaurant, what can I say?), spinach, and plums. 

I guess I don't really have many pictures of this guy this week.  It has been busy with the party and visitors, and now we have a couple of sickies in the house.  Hannah has a relatively mild stomach bug and Brian has a fever.  They are holed up in the master bedroom together as I write, quarantined.  No fun!
