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.
