36

As of the 27th, Drew is now as old as I am.  He says he will never be as old as I am, but if we are going by the simple answer to, "How old are you?", we are both now 36 years old.  But who's counting?  He also happens to share his birthday with a pretty special 4 year old.  Yep, Casey & Sasha's little girl is now 4 and, from what I hear, Princess Tessa had a wonderful birthday getting her hair cut  & nails painted like a big girl.  Time flies. 

Grandma LaGayle came over for some play time this past week. 
 Drew took me out to eat barbeque one evening last week and Eleanor was being loud (imagine that)!), so we gave her a lemon.  These were the faces after her first taste...

 Then she put it back in her mouth for another taste (and again and again). 
 I don't know why I have so many pictures of her eating.  I just think she's cute.  She's eating pretty much all table food now and feeding herself whenever possible.  She's just that grown up.  Y'all, she'll be 11 months old on Saturday.  How is that possible? 
 We went to get Drew's eyes checked on Friday so he could get new lenses in his glasses and Eleanor was really struggling to be quiet.  The high ceilings of the mall make everything echo and that's just too good to pass up.  Look at her face as Drew tells her, "Shh".  She cracks me up.  She's just bursting to let out a good squeal.
