3 Weeks!

I can't believe he is 3 weeks already! Things are still going good. He sleeps about 3-4 hours at a time at night and is awake a lot more during the day. We had a busy Father's Day weekend and got to see some out of town family and friends. We saw my cousin Shelley and her family on Saturday, my cousin Abbey was up from Florida on Monday and Asher had his first "play date" with Delia and Kelsey today. Too bad they both slept through it!
Dad and RJ come almost everyday for lunch and to hang out with Asher.
On Father's Day Dustin played in the Parent-Child Tourney with his Dad.
Asher isn't quite big enough to play yet but he went out to get his picture taken anyway.
My first real bath! Asher's cord fell off on Saturday...Finally!
He likes to hang out in his Boppy while I get ready in the morning. Boo is usually there to supervise.

OK so I haven't been real good about keeping this updated. You wouldn't believe how busy a newborn can keep you! Asher went back to the Dr on Monday to check his weight and he came in at 7 lbs 14 oz! He will go back in another 2 weeks. Tuesday I took him to the Courthouse to show him off to my coworkers but Auntie Taylor stole the show by passing out while we were there. I tried to get a picture of the firetruck and ambulance outside but couldn't get to my purse in time! She was soooo embarrassed. Its funny now but was scary at the time! We had our first fussy night last night. He was not a happy camper from about 8:30 - 11:30 last night. I was about ready to call Grandma for help when he fell asleep, then he was fine the rest of the night. I guess he doesn't want us to think we have it too good :)
Miss Ashlyn came to visit on Saturday. Asher even got a kiss from her!
Rare to see him so awake!

Boo has been soooo good! He does seem a little sad but I think its because he doesn't like being home with me all day. He has had 1 slumber party with Grandma so far and went home with Taylor this morning. He is used to going there everyday and doesn't like having to stay home!

Baby's Day Out

Thursday was Asher's first big day out! I think it wore me out more than him. We had to go to the Gibson Hospital first to get copies of medical records, then off to Paxton to get copies of his birth certificate and if that wasn't enough for one day to Bloomington to apply for his social security number. We lucked out at the SS office because Dustin's Aunt Elaine works there and someone inside recognized the plates on the truck. So while I was sitting in the back of the truck feeding little piggy his Aunt came out and got all my documents, took them inside and had everything done in less than 10 minutes. Now that is curbside service!
Either Taylor or I stayed in the truck with him at the other stops while mom chauffered us around. I did take him into Target with me but other than that he slept in his car seat the whole time. I was tired too, being the first time I've been out. I was trying to stay awake on the ride home.

Dustin's Dad & Grandpa came over for supper last night and Dustin even cooked!
Addie stopped by last night too and brought Asher his first Build-A-Bear.

Today Asher got to meet his cousin Charlee! He seems so tiny compared to her!
Asher 1 Week - Charlee 7 Weeks
Ok hopefully I can get this fixed later.... this was the best picture of Asher & Charlee but I can't seem to get it turned around at the moment.

Boo was sooooo excited that Auntie Taylor took him on a walk up to the post office today!

I was downstairs working on the computer and when I came up they were both fast asleep.

The Godfather

We had to get a picture of Scott (my Godfather) with Asher after we found this picture of me and Scott.
Scott with Asher at 6 days
Scott with me at 5 days
(yeah, I was huge)


Asher continues to do great, I can't believe he's a week old already! Last night he only got up once during the night! I'm hoping this pattern continues.
After his bath today. Mom didn't like this hairstyle.... she likes the mohawk that makes him look like chicken little :)
He really does seem to enjoy bath time.
Great-Great Aunt Annie & Uncle Merle
Bethany & Landon came yesterday and brought us a wonderful supper!
Hanging out with Uncle RJ
Dad put up his name the day we came home from the hospital - it turned out so good!

Check Up

I went to see Dr Austman this morning to have my staples removed and for her to check Asher's weight and have a look at him. When he was at the office on Friday he weighed 6 lbs 10 oz.... today he weighed 7 lbs 4 oz! He must be getting enough to eat! She said that he is a little jaundice but it is nothing to worry about. He goes back next Monday to have his weight checked again.

First Day at Home

The first day and night at home went so well! We had lots of family over last night for supper then Mom spent the night to help me since I still have a really hard time getting in and out of bed. We put him down at about 10:15 and he got up at 12:30, 4:30 and then again at 7:30. I can't complain about that at all! I asked Dustin this morning if he heard anything or if he woke up at all.... he didn't hear a thing and slept right through everything. I guess its a good thing mom stayed that first night!
Asher is doing great he's eating and sleeping good. I'm still really sore but its getting better. You don't realize how much you use your stomach muscles until they're gone!
Taylor is our resident "baby hog"
Papa sat and held Asher for 2 hours this morning - he was even wearing his Gone Bananas outfit!

First Bath at home

Snuggling with Daddy in the morning
Both of my boys were cuddling with me!
We had to take a picture of him "praying" he LOVES his hands. He was gripping so tight his little knuckles were white!
Asher had been home about half hour and Boo was already cuddling up to him. We just let him do his own thing and it wasn't long before he was laying by him.
All dressed and ready to go home.

Saturday we had the Marchelloni's Cruise in - but somehow I managed to forget to take pictures! We had my car out, Taylor's GTO, Mom & Dad's Chevelle and Dad's Chevelle all out. It rained just like it did last year but it was still fun.
Sunday everyone went out to the farm for the afternoon and at one point it was a full house!
Taylor and Heidi.... they might be fighting over that scotcharoo.
Pickle - Scott and Jamie's Great Dane. Even Boo is learning to play well with others.
Thanks to Kerry & Sara we have a new farm car. The boys were having lots of fun until they got it stuck in the mud. Good thing Smalley was there to go pull them out.

Kolby is now outfitted with everything he needs to go fishing, too bad I got his boots cut off.
My little peanut sitting with Grandma.
I even went for a pontoon ride Sunday. It was gorgeous out, but I dont think Dad liked me riding with my belly hanging out. NOTE: no pictures of that :)
