Getting Closer...

Asher keeps getting closer and closer to crawling. Pretty soon we will have to get the baby gate out because he can scoot backwards pretty good. I got a video of him rocking last night. He loves the Roll and Crawl ball that Charlee got him for Christmas!
I loved this picture with his tongue out - too bad you can't see his whole face =)

Asher got to try out his new mesh feeder last night with bananas and loved it! It was a little messy but he seemed to like it. I have this fear of him choking so he has never had any "fresh" food. He ate half a banana last night so we'll try some of the frozen peaches tonight!

Muscle Man

I don't know whether Asher has been in training to crawl or to go up against his Uncle RJ, who thinks he's getting ripped working out recently. Haha I think Mama could whip Uncle RJ's scrawny little 6' - 140 lb butt.
He's got his serious face on.
Haha. I still laugh every time he does this. Seems so funny to see a little guy doing "push ups"

Who's There?

OK, so this weekend I had someone say to me that the check my blog all the time. I've had this happen quite often and it really does make you wonder how many people out there keep up on this blog and what Asher is up to. So for the next week I'm asking everyone who stops in to click to the right of the page just once to see how many people check this thing in a week. I've tried to add one of those counters at the bottom of the page but can't quite get it figured out. Thanks!


Last night was my first full night of sleep in 2 months! I usually stare at the clock or baby monitor all night. As soon as I hear Asher stir I turn on the video monitor and watch for a while then go in and put his paci in. Then there are the repeated trips to the bathroom... I just haven't been able to sleep since Mom and Dad moved out and we moved upstairs. I think last night it was a combination of my new medicine and Asher taking more in his night time bottle that is helping him sleep more sound. When I woke up this morning and it was 5:15 I was sooooooooo excited! I almost made it to my alarm :)

Awww more babies

On Saturday afternoon Dustin, Asher and I went to see Matt and Jenna Kilgus' new baby boy Collin! He's such a tiny little peanut:) Asher was excited to see his friend Kamber (big sister) because they go to the same sitter. Kamber wanted to make sure Asher wasn't bored so she brought all her toys out for him to play with. I think Dustin thought Asher was liking the pink ponies and baby dolls a little too much!

These Boots are Made for Walkin

I saw these little cowboy boots at Wal Mart yesterday and HAD to have them! They are still a little big so we tried them on over his jammies.

Asher loves to get up on your shoulders, he usually pulls my hair so we put him on Dad's since he doesn't have any hair to pull :)

My Aching Head

Asher went back to the Dr yesterday for a follow-up with his "jonesing" which seems to be much better. I've only seen him do it once or twice a week for the past month. I've decided not to do the EEG, but to wait and see if it gets any worse. Little man hadn't gained much weight since last month, weighing in at 19 lbs 4 oz. I've been having trouble getting him to take a bottle so I got some different nipples and that seems to help.

Although it was Asher's appointment I hogged most of his time talking to Dr Austman about my migraines which have seemed to have flared up again. I was on a preventative shortly before we started trying to get pregnant then I had to get off and I haven't been on anything since. I only had 1 while I was pregnant and about 6 since I've had him.

But last Thursday I had barely got to work before I started seeing spots. For anyone who has never experienced this its CrAzY. It makes it impossible to work on the computer. About an hour later I have up and headed home. I thought I could make it back to Fairbury without getting sick but about 3 miles out of town I had the window down and was trying to "breathe" through it. Maybe I should have taken a Lamaze class. Anyway I ended up puking in my lunch bag as I was pulling into the parking lot out at north park. What a way to start the day.

Since then I haven't been able to get rid of what I call a "functioning headache." Meaning I can still work but am miserable. I had a massage on Tuesday and that helped a little but when we were at the Dr last night I was ready for some real meds. Dr Austman put me back on a preventative and gave me 2 different prescriptions for when I get a migraine. Then I got a shot in the butt for good measure. I think Asher thought it was great to go to the Dr and Mommy had to get a shot while he just watched! So anyway, I'm hoping this new medicine helps!

Playdate with Charlee

On Sunday Beau and Charlee came over to watch the game. Asher & Charlee got to hang out and Grandpa Ray and Grandma Sue stopped by to see them too!

Katelynn's Game

On Saturday we went to Pontiac to watch Katelynn cheer at a basketball game. Asher loved watching and all the attention he got. Sorry, pictures are backwards.
Chewing on a biter biscut at lunch after the game.
Hanging out with Auntie Taylor
Ladies Man.
Asher & Kate
So excited to watch all the action


We got out Asher's big boy car seat this weekend and got it all adjusted to fit him. I still use his carrier too because sometimes its easier to have him all ready to go in the house than to strap him in the truck and drag him out when we go in somewhere. I think I'll like the new one better once he's big enough to be forward facing.
Our new cheezy grin.

Baby Brynlee

Last Thursday I finally got my hands on Carlee's precious baby Brynlee! She was so sweet and so tiny. Asher is going to have lots of little friends to play with. Brynlee's hair is awesome! So thick and she even had a little bow in her hair. Too cute!

January 14, 2010

Sorry for the lack of posts. Not much has been going on. Asher and I are going to see Baby Brynlee tonight so hopefully we'll have some good pictures!

Rub-A-Dub-Dub Asher & Boo in the Tub!

OK, I know what you're thinking and NO, I didn't have them in the tub at the same time. I love my BooBear but I wouldn't let it go that far. Besides, poor Boo would be trapped with Asher. Little man loves to watch Boo and tries to grab him whenever he gets close enough (which isn't very often!)
Asher used his new bath seat but wasn't thrilled. He did love the green rubber ducky though.
Poor Boo has to take a bath in his brother's used bath water. Is this what you would call a drowned rat?
On Sunday Asher got up on all fours and stayed there for a little bit. He may be crawling before we know it!

Charlee & Asher. Christmas take 4.

We had our last Christmas on Saturday night with the Lawrence side. These two babies have got to be sick of us taking pictures of them by now!

New Year's Eve

This year for NYE Mom and Dad had a party. I had a good time but but about 10:30 I knew it was time for me to take little man home. Dustin came home some time later...
Asher was so handsome in his plaid shirt!

Haha Love this one.
OK, thats better. Taylor & Heidi
A heated Ship - Captian - Crew game.
RJ pulled out his bundle of ones the next day but he wouldn't give me back the money I lost.
