Easter Sunday

On Sunday, Asher and I went to Jena to spend Easter with Grammy and Pop-pop. Grammie had put out Orvalle's old Easter basket for the Easter Bunny. After the everyone left, Grammie let Asher dig into all the goodies. She gave him a Peep and some chocolate. 
This picture is blurry, but you can see the blue and brown from the candy.

Mr. Cool with his candy.

Gavin, Kami, Maddy, and Luke. The twins and Gavin had matching outfits; they were so cute.

Crawfish Boil

Saturday, we went to a crawfish boil at my Aunt Bonnie's house. They had an Easter egg hunt for the kids.
Trentin really got into the hunt. He was showing Asher all his eggs.
He found two. (I placed next to two.) He was happy with those two. We even placed a third one into the basket, but two was enough.

Playing Before Bed

He was so much fun this night. I put him in the crib just for a few minutes to clean up before bed. He didn't mind. He just kept on playing and laughing.
I love this picture. Look at that big mouth!
The crib must taste good.

Active Baby

Asher's fat rolls are slowly disappearing due to his NONstop activity, but he is so much fun! I love playing with him, and he loves exploring. I have so many fun pictures from this particular evening that it will take two post. Tomorrow, I will post the rest.
I was doing his laundry. When we were playing, I moved the baskets and clothes to the "grandparents" bed in his room. He tried so hard to get to them. I hope that this means he will be more than willing to help us with chores when he gets older.
Playing with Mike.

Big Bath Tub

Asher has out grown his baby bath tub. Orvalle said to put him in the big tub, but both of the bath tubs are very deep. Thus, I was very reluctant. However, he loves the tub, and he cannot pull up because it is so deep. In other news, Asher's two lateral incisor or fang teeth are coming in. He is teething just like his cousin Gavin. From what I hear, Luke is teething in the same pattern as well.
I finally got a good shot of his bottom two teeth!
He loves playing with his bath toys now. His Grammie gave him some ducks and his Nanna gave him some fish. Bath time is so much fun, but he hates when I lay him back to rinse his hair.

Not So Fun Weekend

Last weekend was supposed to be a very busy, We went to Monroe to see Matt J. He is one of Orvalle's old friends from high school. He is also one of my old friends from La Tech. He is one of the reasons Orvalle and I met. After spending a few days with Uncle Matt, we went to Minden to spend some time with some more friends, the Watkins family. It was Hayden's 2nd birthday! We didn't make the party or the rest of our plans. I got really ill, and we had to go to Jena early on Sunday. Grammie had to take care of Asher while Orvalle took care of me. We had to leave Asher behind on Wednesday. I am feeling better and I miss my baby so much!
Uncle Matt is very talented. Asher was supposed to be playing his bongos while Uncle Matt played the guitar, but Asher was wanted to play the guitar.

In Memory

Last week, marked three years since my father died. I cannot believe that it has been 3 years since God has called him home. However, I cannot believe what all has happen in that 3 years: I have earned my second degree, got married, bought a house, have 6 beautiful nieces and nephews, and a beautiful baby boy of my own. 
On Tuesday, I took Asher to my mom's house where my dad's two sisters and some close cousins gathered for lunch in his memory. It was the first time for a lot of them to meet Asher. He enjoyed the attention from everyone, but he mainly enjoyed his Nanna. I am so lucky Asher has 4 grandparents that love him so much, and the three that are here sure do let him know it.
