Asher: Four Months Old

Asher, Month Four

Not sure on weight/length right now, but you're easily wearing 6-12 month outfits and making mommy very sad that she bought all of those summer clothes in that size... You sleep like a champ and I can put you in bed wide-awake and you'll fall asleep--usually without a peep. In the morning, you wake up happy, but that quickly turns into FEED ME RIGHT NOW. We love you so much, Asher Boo.

  • Mommy (You are a real-deal momma's boy. Daddy tried to put you to bed the other night and you flipped. Must change this soon, but I love that you love me.)
  • Your swing. Riley never loved the swing, but man, you will fall asleep in there in a second.
  • Toys! You've discovered your hands and then realized you could do things with them. We love watching you grab at brightly colored toys and chewing them like mad. 
  • Milk. (Not that you have a lot of choice...you're still on a mom-only diet, but solids are a doctor's checkup away and we know you'll be loving them!)
  • Bibs. Okay, I don't know if you love them, but we do. They keep your shirts from getting soaked from all that drool and spit-up that's a constant with you.
  • Tummy time. Nope, you hate it. Riley was rolling over by two months but you just kind of float there like a big chunky Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade float. I know you would roll if you didn't weigh so much!
  • Baths. Funny thing about you... You don't dislike a lot and you rarely get upset, but when you are upset, you show it. Alot. And baths....well, we think if you had the means you would stab us in the face. You are not a fan. 
  • That's honestly all I can think of. You are the easiest baby I've ever met.

Asher v. Riley: Playing Catch-Up

Let's get back on track here with the baby pictures...and the comparisons. Honestly, I feel a little bad that I'm always comparing Riley and Asher, but I can't help it. It's more fun than anything to try and remember what Riley was doing at the same point in time. I'm sure I'm probably ruining them somehow by not letting them be their own people, but I'll likely scar them irreparably anyway so I might as well start young and get it over with!

Okay, so without further delay. The first four months of Asher's life...combined with the first four of Riley's:





Yes, they are definitely brothers!

Beginning, again.

It's a new year! So here I am with what will probably be one of four posts I'll manage to get out in 2011. There was no exciting "blog more" resolution so sad-to-say I'm not going to make some crazy proclamations about how well I'll do at updates. BUT, I have to keep chugging along. One of my favorite things to do is to look back at the early posts from 2007 and see how things were and where we were and what house we lived in. Now, it's a quick picture and our lives in bullet points. Way too busy living life to write about it!

Everything is fast these days... we have a four-month-old. Wow. He's a third of a year old! Too fast. Way. Too. Fast. He's a doll baby with the sweetest personality and a smile to match. We all just adore this perfect little guy that has blessed our world. Our 3-yr-old is pretty amazing himself. One of the funniest kids I've ever met (and I'm not at all biased). He keeps us laughing and happy all the time. His mastery of the English language is for real. His mastery of the potty--not so much. But, we're making some great progress. I would say...75% there. He switched classes at school and it improved his behavior by a landslide so I'm guessing it was the right decision. (Although he talks about his old classmates and how much he misses them. Sad.) He's also in gymnastics and adjusting to yet another teacher telling him what he can and cannot do. Get used to it, kid.

In professional news...tonight marks the last night of work on what can only be called, one of the longest projects ever. Throw pregnancy and baby-havin' into a construction site and 6-months later you'll have a finished house. The house, however, is awesome. Our best yet to be sure. I MUST share pictures. It's insane. AND, I will be listing it as my first listing (yaaaay) so I've been spending lots of time learning my real estate ropes.

Things are cranking. Big time. We are working on moving...yet again....and getting our current house on the market. So between selling the flip, selling this house, and renovating the next, I'm thinking 2011 is going to be pretty bad-a. I'm excited for it.

Here are a few Christmas pics: (and coming up next, a post with Asher's pictures...months 2-4)
