4 year and 6 month photos

Today, I took the boys to Waverly to have Landon's 4 year and Asher's 6 month photos taken.  Rose at Infinite Image Design once again knocked them out of the park.  Seriously, who are these kids?  You can view the rest of the photos here.  The password is stacy.

Tooth #2

I knew it wouldn't be long.  When I finally got my fingers in Asher's mouth the other day, I realized tooth #2 had popped through.  Asher now has his two bottom teeth.  Is it really going to be that easy? 

Too bad he is still rejecting any form of baby food/cereal.  He locks those lips so tight I have to squeeze his cheeks to get the spoon in his mouth.  I only try every couple days.  I don't want to scar the kid or anything.  Asher does love his gerber puffs however.  They look like a little piece of cereal, but dissolve in your mouth.  He gets super excited when he sees the container.  I have a feeling we are just going to jump straight to table food, and it will probably be sooner than later.

More tub photos

Santa brought Asher a bath seat and he is loving it.  He loves taking a bath, and kicks almost the whole time he is in tub.

That's a really big frisbee...

After being cooped up in the house with Mom and Asher all morning Saturday, Landon thought he needed a little time outdoors.  So I bundled him up and sent him out.  He was pretty serious about needing to dig some holes in the snow.
The plan was to bundle up Asher as well and pull the sleds out.  After realizing it was a little too cold out for Asher, Landon thought he would play with his sled anyway.  Before either of us realized it, Elke was prancing around the yard all in her glory.  Elke thought she won the lottery and had the biggest frisbee known to man (or dog).
Not wanting to disappoint either, I pulled out a new frisbee from Elke's stash, and Landon was able to reclaim his sled.

Is winter finally here?

In twenty-four hours, we went from record setting temps,,, 
to four inches of snow.
We finally got our first snow measurable snow of the season today, January 12th.  I have to admit I was really loving the 50 degree weather.  Landon on the other hand was super excited to wake up and see snow outside. 
A recap on our extremely pleasant December.

Six Months Old

 Happy 1/2 Birthday Asher! You are now six months old! 
So what has Asher been up to lately?  As I mentioned a week ago, Asher is sitting on his own like a champ.  Asher is also a fantastic sleeper at night.  He usually goes down around 7:30 and I wake him up in the morning around 6:30.  On the weekends he will sleep until 7:30 or so.  Asher is not a great napper and will take about five 30-45 minute naps during the day. I'm not complaining though when he sleeps 12 hours through the night. 
My happy baby!  Asher is so happy and will smile at just about anyone.  Asher thinks his brother is the funniest person in the world right now.  Asher had his six month appointment on Friday and weighed in at a whopping 21 pounds 10 ounces and is 27 1/4 inches long.  He is in the 90th percentile for weight and 80th for height.  Despite being a big boy, Asher still does not like cereal and/or baby food.  Most of the time, I have to pry his mouth open to get a bite in there.  He does however, love gerber puffs. 
See all that drool?  Asher's first tooth popped through and I don't think number two is far behind.  This morning I was holding Asher when he bit down on my fingers.  I thought his bite hurt a little bit so I started to feel his gums.  Sure enough, there was a tooth there.  Lets hope they all come in as easy as the first one!  We are thrilled to see what the next six months bring!

Happy New Year!

We had an exciting 2011 and are excited to see what God has in store for 2012.  Happy New Year!

Sitting up...

First rolling over, now sitting up.  What a way to end one year and kick off another.  On Saturday, Asher learned how to sit up, and stay sitting.  Over the course of one day, he has it completely mastered.  So many milestones, somebody slow this train down...
