Zoo Time

Asher, Orvalle, Luke, and I went to the Zoo the other weekend. We had a blast! (We really try to do something fun together on the weekends since I started working. ) The petting zoo was Asher's favorite part. He didn't want to leave. In fact, we shut the place down! Luke, however, really didn't care for the petting zoo. He just stood there expressionless. He did think it was funny to see Uncle Bubba and Asher inside the fences as we both look in. Those boys are so funny.

I cannot believe how long it has been since I last blogged. Things are crazy around here. Asher is displaying a little preview of the "Terrible Two's." Plus, he now needs to know what everyone is doing and try doing it himself. It's not easy cooking with a 15 month old on your hip and grabbing at the spoon. Although exhausting, this is a really great age. He is so funny, which sometimes makes discipline harder to enforce at times.

We had some problems last month with his breathing. After receiving breathing treatments every 3 to 4 hours daily and nightly, we now only have to do it before he goes to bed. He hates them!

Asher's 1st Birthday

Asher had a great birthday! Lots of people came. He was extremely tired. He woke up Sunday morning with a cold. By Wednesday, it was in his chest. Last night he had a fever of 102.5. I brought him to the doctor this morning, and he does not have an infection. I apologized for the visit, like most first-time moms. However, Dr. Gesn said that the visit was wise, even though it was a common cold. See, people, listen to your gut!

This picture does not do the mess justice. Asher had cake everywhere!

We have been very busy planning parties, going to parties, visiting family, and learning about disappointment.
Orvalle took this picture above. He said this was Asher's reaction when he told him that Aunt Jen would not be attending his party with Uncle Nathan, Rylie, and Sadie. (Orvalle made me post this.)
We took a trip to New Roads where we had lunch with Mr. Randy and Mrs. MaryAnne. False River is across the street, and there are plenty of horses and cows in the backyard. Asher didn't want to leave. To be honest, I didn't either. I use to live just a mile from them. They are like my second parents.
When I was shopping for the party, Orvalle prepared Asher for bed: bathing, feeding, and reading a book, in that order. Orvalle now knows why I feed Asher before bath time.

Gavin's Birthday

I'm really behind on my post... again. Here are some pictures of Gavin's birthday. It was the weekend before Asher's party. I did not get any pictures of Gavin and his cake, because Asher was throwing a fit. Yes, we are at that stage. It really isn't that bad unless he is tired. He does have a little attitude though. The joys of parenthood.
Here is Aunt Leah being mean to all the kids in the pool. Just joking. It only looks like she is dunking Baylee. I thought it was a funny picture. Sorry, Leah.
Daddy and Asher in the pool.
The birthday boy and Asher. Look at those bellies on those boys!

Way Back

This is his daddy's rocking-n-chair!
Doesn't know the what a gift is or the art of opening one.
His first bath. He did not like it, but he now loves it!

Reflecting on Asher

So, a year ago, I was STILL pregnant. My due date was August 1, 2008. However, a very large me went to Gavin's 1st birthday party. It would be a whole 14 days pass my due date before Asher would make his arrival, but he was well worth the wait.

Birthday Party at Aunt Onnie's House

We had Trentin's and Kenzi's party at our house two weekends ago. It was a lot of fun. There were so many people, tons of food, cake, and a space walk! The next day Kelli, Donnie, and Kenzi came over to fix the lawn mower and play. Asher was so excited to see Kenzi twice in one weekend.

Here are the two frog cakes. Kelli made them herself! She loves baking and is very creative. She will be baking Asher's birthday cake.
Here are the birthday boy and girl. They were very shy when everyone sang Happy Birthday.

More Food PIctures

Well, in two weeks my baby turns 1! It hurts. We have been really busy lately. Things are a little more difficult to accomplish now that he is walking. He is discovering new things everyday! I find myself consuming more coffee lately.
Asher loves blueberries! The top picture is a little scary, but he is showing me the berry in his mouth. In the bottom picture, his lips are almost as blue as his eyes.
Mr. Independent is trying so hard to learn how to feed himself with a spoon. When he eats, I have a spoon and so does he. At first, the spoon went into my mouth a lot. He thought it was so funny! Then, he was able to get it into his mouth. Next, he learn how to dip the spoon into the food. He sometimes is able to scoop the food out. However, he has not put the first and second step together. So, he ends up putting the food on his high chair, grabbing the food and eating it with his hands, and finally putting the empty spoon in his mouth.

Lil' Farmer

Asher is all boy. He loves everything outdoors. He loved watching the big wheel go round and round. He had so much fun in Mississippi, but he always does. Love you, Nanna.

Birthday Parties

We have been hitting the birthday parties, and it's about to get serious. We have birthday parties back to back!
This picture above is Bayleigh's party. It was a swimming party, so Asher was thrilled.
This is the Sharbono twins. I am so sorry, but I don't know which one is which.
Asher relaxing on Memommie.
Sadie and Asher are wondering what all those people are doing there, while Rylie is being a little bit more sociable.

Zoo Trip

A few weeks ago, we took Asher on his first visit to the Baton Rouge Zoo. It was hot... very hot! I had to take his shirt and hat off. The heat did not stop Asher from having a good time. He loved looking at all the animals and being there with his cousins.
This is a sheep, but they had recently shaved her.
Asher wanted to play with monkeys!

Zoe-bug and the bald sheep.
Gavin was dancing to the Cajun music playing. I tried to get some of his moves on camera but couldn't.
Asher and Luke being best buds, until the hair pulling and hitting started.

Asher made of new friend.
Luke and Kami. I love her hat!
Daddy and Asher. What a wonderful day!

Summer Fun

Okay, so I know that I have been a bad blogger, but a lot has been going on around here. It's been soooo hot, and Asher loves to be outside and to swim. Orvalle took him swimming in the shade in the yard. Well, not so much swimming as splashing around the baby pool. Asher was so happy! He even got to go swimming with Gavin. Sorry, no pictures of that.
