I can’t believe we have reached the final installment of his monthly photos. When I look back at the pictures of him, it is crazy to see how much he has grown, and to see how chunky he was this summer. He has really begun to thin and lengthen out. I loved hanging all his pictures out at his birthday party so everyone could see his growth. I am so glad that I took the time each month to get these shots. I know I will really appreciate having them in the future.
Here are a couple of the pictures from his last monthly shots and a few more of him when we took our Christmas pictures. He looks like a little boy in his Christmas pics. I am still in disbelief!
A few weeks ago, we went to LA to spend Thanksgiving with my family. While we were there, we celebrated Asher’s first birthday.
Happy Birthday our little Wild Thing!
Happy Birthday to the greatest little man we know!
You are so full of joy, happiness, laughter, and love! We can’t wait to see what the next year will bring. Happy Birthday little man. We love you so!
This little guy is all personality!
We can’t believe we are less than a month away from having a one-year-old. He is showing us more and more of who he is. He has a wonderful happy personality, always laughing, talking, and doing something hilarious.
Yesterday, we reached ten months!
Right now this guy has four teeth (with two more on the way). He spends most of his time traveling along the edge of the couch to the coffee table. He is getting so strong, it won’t be long before he is standing on his own and taking his first steps. He enjoys reading his books, throwing his books, and playing fetch with his books (and other toys).
He is very focused and intent on learning the world around him. He loves watching people. When he finds someone, he focuses in on them, intently figuring them out. His big, always prevalent, smile hasn’t changed (except those two little teeth you see peeking out from the bottom of his mouth). He continues to laugh all the time, and snuggle when he isn’t feeling good. And, most importantly, he continues to bring happiness to those he encounters everyday!
We love this little guy! He really is the best!
We love this little guy. His contagious laugh and adorable smile keep us entertained all day long. Right now he enjoys exploring the living room. He is everywhere and going there quickly. He loves reading his books; his favorite right now is “Are You My Mommy?” He loves to practice walking around and we know he can’t wait to start trying it out on his own. We can see his bottom two teeth poking through, so now we just wait until they decide to pop up altogether. He keeps our lives very exciting!
This kid had been growing so much lately. We are constantly amazed at all this little guy is learning, and how quickly he seems to catch on. He is the happiest baby ever (people are always telling us this). And, he is also the cutest (People are always telling us this too!). We are very blessed for all the joy this little one has given us and all that he comes in contact with. We can’t wait to see what the next few months will bring! I wonder what crazy adventures this little guy is going to be taking us on?
I can’t believe how fast the time is flying by. It seems like it was just yesterday that we were bringing him home from the hospital . . . well enough sappy talk, let’s see those pictures. Since that’s the reason you are all here anyway.
I know that he turned six months a few weeks ago, but this is the first time I actually had time to sit down and edit these pictures. What a cutie!
Asher was baptized a few weeks ago. We have been so busy, I haven’t had a chance to put the pictures up until now.
We had some family here for the weekend, so Asher was the center of attention all weekend long. The grandparents and great grandparents had a great time playing with him.
It was a great service. Pastor Jon did an amazing job, and Asher laughed all the through it. I’m not sure who was actually listening to Jon since Asher was stealing the show! Good thing it was all about him. It was a great weekend, but I think someone needed some time to recover!
