5 Months Old

My goodness Asher, you are such a precious baby boy! I still can't believe how much you've grown and changed in the past couple months, but nonetheless, you are growing like a weed!! It's been a difficult month for all of us, but we survived sickfest 2011 and icemageddon and snowpocalypse 2011! You are quickly growing in to your own little personality and I see so much of both daddy and me in you already!

Here are some pictures from the past month of your life! We are so blessed to have you and love you so much!!!

Breathing treatments to help clear up RSV
My poor little sickling!
Back to health, YAY!!!
This is your "its too bright people!" face that you give every time you wake up!
Your first try at cereal and clearly you love it!
Staying warm with daddy during the rolling blackouts
Your first cloth diaper experience and of course, you are absolutely adorable!!! Can't get enough of those thunder thighs!!!
How could I resist those precious little feet!!!

Your obsession with your older brother is very clear, you absolutely L.O.V.E. him!!!!
This picture is PRICELESS! You are going through a phase where you do not like falling asleep on me, and 99% of the time you won't. However, you love falling asleep in daddy's arms. That's why when you fell asleep in my arms for the first time in weeks, I had to have daddy take a picture for proof that it can still happen! Since then, you've done it quite a few more times and that makes this momma very happy!!!

Asher, we love every inch of you! You keep us on our toes and do a great job of making sure my mommy instincts are working, especially in the middle of the night, with your frequent 4am awake time. It challenges me to search my heart and allow the Lord to constantly show me my selfishness during those early hours when all I really want to do is sleep. You love to eat and while you don't eat quite as much as Caleb did, you definitely eat on the higher side of the average for your age. It clearly shows in your awesome thighs and cute "full" belly that I love!! You are constantly smiling, cooing and love being tickled! Happy Five Month Birthday honey, we love you so much!!!

Be Blessed and Encouraged!
