A Few Memorable Moments...

Here are a couple videos I shot this week of moments that I truly don't ever want to forget. So cute and the last two are pretty funny if you ask me!

Above: Caleb and Asher's 1st interaction where Asher is in complete heaven talking to his big brother!

Ok, I could *and have* watched the above video probably 50 times!

I love Caleb's interpretation of the different animal noises that he has heard and knows. The horse is my favorite!

Be Blessed and Encouraged!

Two Months Old!

My dear sweet Asher, you are SUCH A HONEY!!! At only two months old, you are already smiling, responding to any person who comes within 5 feet of you, cooing and have just started to chuckle a little bit!! You are so stinkin' cute and SOOO entertaining!

I have to brag on your big brother a little bit because he sure does love you! When he hears you crying he picks up your pacy and puts it in your mouth. Sometimes you take it and sometimes not, but you sure do love to see your brother because every time he comes over you smile ear to ear!

We went to see Dr. R. today, your Pediatrician, and you are a healthy, growing boy! You weigh 13lbs. 12oz., are 23 5/8 inches long and your head is perfect! 9oth percent for weight, 75th for height and about 50% for head. I still can't believe you gained 3 pounds in only one month! You are on the same track as your brother and I LOVE IT!!

You have also started only waking up once in the middle of the night (started this at 4 weeks old), and as of this past week, 3 out of 5 nights, you have slept a solid 7-8 hours before feeding again! This momma feels like a new woman with all this sleep! THANK YOU!!! We're going to do a trial run of putting you in with Caleb pretty soon, just to see how you both sleep. Should be interesting!

This past month with you has truly been overflowing with complete joy! You are so precious to me and daddy, and we can't imagine life without you! We love you honey!! Happy two month birthday!

Everytime I look at the picture above I just laugh! I don't know why, but I just think it's hilarious!
I love the concerned look as you're sleeping...your big brother had the same look when he was a baby too!
This is what I call your "old-man-crying" face. This is the face I get every time you're hungry, and I can't help but laugh just a little bit because not only is your face cute, but your cry is absolutely adorable!!
I had to snap a picture of your mowhawk only because YOU HAVE SO MUCH HAIR!!! I LOVE running my fingers through it after you've gotten your bath, it's so soft and fuzzy!!
And my favorite from this past month! Snapped this one on my iPhone! LOVE LOVE LOVE your smile, especially because I know it's legit, it's not just when you're gassy!!

Be Blessed and Encouraged!

22 Months

Wow, again, another month gone by. This is possibly the first time that I've actually been telling people you are 21 months old, when actually you are 22! So sad! This past month has brought on a LOT of change in your little world. With your little brother arriving, you have had a bit of trouble getting used to sharing momma. I know it's hard, sweetie, but this too shall pass. You will never remember life without Asher (even though I will! I TREASURE those first 20 months I had with you by myself!!). You have so much to look forward to having a brother. I can't wait to see how our lives change over the next many years because of it!

You are also saying some new words as well, which is very exciting for this momma! Among them are Bible, sh (shoe), pade (potty), ph ph (poo poo), and so many more! I need to take a day and write down every word that comes out of your mouth so I have a list!

I love you so much Caleb! Happy 22 month birthday my precious honey!!

This a particular picture because Caleb knows that our DVDs are off limits, yet each day, multiple times a day, he goes over and just stands and stares at them. So tempting buddy, I know!!

Blessed and Encouraged!
