The Tie.



When I picked up this tie for Drew to wear in our Christmas card photos last year I thought that I was going to have to endure screaming, crying, kicking, refusals...you get the point. Of course, because Drew is so incredibly unpredictable, he loved it. We're talkin' wore it for four days in a row including with Buzz Lightyear pajamas.

I can't say I was really surprised when last Tuesday he requested to pick out his own clothes to wear and his beloved tie made an appearance. A guitar "Rock Hero" T-shirt and a tie. It is so representative of Drew and his personality.

A little wild, loud, and dramatic. A little sweet, charming, and sensitive.

I love love these photos!! He looks so big and like big boy, no baby face. Love all the red on him to go with his hair. He is so cute and love that he's having fun instead of just perfectly posing for you. My son went thru a phase where he loved suits and ties. My dad got him the nicest one two years ago and Sam held it up and said thank you granpa it's the best present ever. After making him open all his other gifts it was the suit that one and he held it the whole night. Of course now the phase is over, he won't even wear jeans only athletic pants. Thanks for sharing these with us.

OOOOHHHH! He is so cute. I've got a weakness for red-heads (my son has red hair and the red eyebrows & lashes to match). Love his ensemble! Rock-on Drew.

Amy, It's a little photo collage that I put together in Photoshop. Super easy to do!
