Christmas Day

Today, did not start off well. Daddy call us at 6:30 a.m. He is grounded on the rig due to fog. It's about 11:30 a.m., and we are still waiting to see if he is coming home today. However, it is unlikely. The presents are still under the tree, and Santa left the stockings filled. But there is no peaking until daddy comes home. Asher is still in his Christmas pj's and praying that daddy comes home today safely. We love you, daddy.

Christmas Eve

For Christmas Eve, Asher and I went to Uncle Curtis and Aunt Brigette's house. Asher received plenty of gifts and love. My Aunt Cindy, Uncle Reggie, Troy, and Hannah gave Asher a stuffed sheep for Christmas. He fell in love with it. It must taste good too.
This is my cousin Kelli and her little girl, McKenzie. She kept on saying "ba-bee" to Asher. He was her baby doll for the night.

Kelli and Hannah are loving on Asher, but he is too busy loving on the sheep.

Aunt Cindy and Asher. Asher loved Aunt Cindy's long hair. He wanted to take some home with him. He kept pulling it!

Kenzie in her lady bug coat that Aunt Sea and Nelle got her. She is sooo cute!

Aunt Bonnie and McKenzie opening her gifts. There were a lot of Oohs and Ahhs with a couple of squeals!

Well Baby

Today, Asher went back to the doctor after receiving treatment for pneumonia. He did not get a nap before the appointment, so he was not in a very good mood. He cried through the entire chest xray. The tech gave him a sticker, but he was still very mad at her. Dr. Gesn said his chest looked much better, and Asher sounded better. He was well enough to get his 4 month shots. He was so mad that his face turned red from screaming. We went home, and he took a nap and a bottle. All is forgiven. He is 17.4 lbs and 25.25 inches.

Happy Baby

Asher has discovered another reason he likes his jumperoo...the jumping part! He can touch the floor now. He loves jumping and turning the seat around.
Asher is trying to sit up for Nanna.

This is a picture of Nanna and Asher playing with Asher's giant dog. His daddy got it for him when he was sick. We decided to name him PneuMo.

Sick and Still Playing

Asher doesn't sound better, but I think he is on his way. He still takes long naps, but he is starting to play more and have a little more energy between those long naps. I put him on a pile of blankets to play and sing. I have thrown out tummy time and the routine for now because of the sickness. However, Asher rolls over and plays on his tummy! I really hope that this sickness passes quickly. He is such a happy person even when he is sick!He is progressing and learning so fast. He is in the higher percentile of everything, except for raising his chest with his arms. But he is trying to catch up, as you can see in these pics. He is very competitive. There is a lot of Devall and Randall in this boy!

Snowing in Louisiana?!

This morning I woke up and it was snowing! It is still snowing! At this point, I think we have about 3 to 4 inches of snow. Orvalle is thinking of coming home if his flight is cancelled.

Well, we only had a week with daddy. I was going to make the most of it, but our plans fell through. On Sunday night, I realized that I had a cold, and Asher had a really bad chest cold. We tried everything in the baby books. On Tuesday, he was running an 104.4 fever. I took him to the doctor today. Dr. Gesn ordered a chest xray to be safe, but she thought it was a bad cold. However, the xray revealed pneumonia in Asher's upper left lung! He received a shot and is taking oral medication for the next 10 days. Asher and I had plans this weekend to attend the Randall Christmas, but we are not leaving the house until absolutely necessary. Through this whole ordeal, Asher has been smiling. He is sometimes whinny and wants to be held at times, but he remains a very happy baby. Tonight, we say goodbye to daddy. He will come back on Christmas day!

Daddy's Home

Daddy came home today. We were so excited to see him. He had a super cool toy for Asher and flowers for me. They played together and had a good time.
They played too hard. Aren't my men sweet?

An Eye Scare

Today, I had to bring Asher to the doctor. Aunt Leah pointed out yesterday that Asher's eye was really watery, puffy, and red around his eye. I was so scared it was an infection, something in his eye, or that he scratched it. Dr. Gesen gave him a look over and said he was fine. She explained... We produce tears all day long, and they drain through the nasal cavity. Some babies have really narrow tear ductiles, and they get backed up and swollen. She said a warm compress should do the trick. I was relieved. We did find out that Asher weighs 16.5 lbs and is 25.5 inches! Even the nurse said he was a big baby. Maybe that random tall gene did take to Asher. We'll see! Dr. Gesen also asked if he was a good baby, and he really is. Orvalle and I are so blessed to have such a happy baby, but it's not like we would return him if he wasn't :) We go back to Dr. Gesen in two weeks for his 4 month check up.

Playing with the Davis Babies

Gavin, Kami, and Luke came over today. Me and Nanna kept all four of the kids while Aunt Leah did some running around town. Asher loved seeing his cousins two days in a row! Asher kept on trying to get up and play with Gavin. Sometimes, Asher forgets he doesn't know how to walk or crawl yet. Asher and Kami. Asher looks so much bigger than his cousin, but they are only a month apart.
Asher and Luke are the calm ones of the group.

Asher was so tired when Gavin and the twins left. Both him and Nanna took a nap.

Matching Babies

Leah (sister-in-law), Karri (my sister), and I all bought the kids' Christmass outfits from Old Navy. Trentin was too big for the outfit. We decided to get all of them together for a photo shoot. The three of us agreed that this picture needs to be on an Old Navy billboard. Calib, Asher, Kami, Luke, and Gavin all in their Christmass outfits! Kami is the only girl. Poor thing!
They were all tired of trying to get the shot. It looks like Calib is planning a get-a-way plan with Asher and Kami.

It was hard work getting all the babies together.

Gavin looked so cute in his outfit. I think he could get a job at the North Pole. He reminded me of an elf!

Kami is pretty in pink and red. What a sweetie!

Calib is crawling now, and he is fast!

King of Cool

Asher has so many cute Christmass and winter outfits. I love this one, because his eyes really pop out against the baby blue.
