Big Boy Bed

On Sunday Asher decided to climb out of his crib.  This comes only one day after he figured out he could wiggle his way between the railing and bypass the gate at the top of the stairs.  So as I was still getting used to the fact that I can now walk up and down my stairs a free woman I found out that I now needed to convert Asher's crib to a toddler day bed before he fell out and broke his arm.

Auntie Taylor came and picked him up after dinner on Monday night so that Dustin and I had a chance to get his crib switched over and his room re-arranged a little bit.
I'm not sure what he thought when he got home but I think he was excited! 
Whats going on here?!?! 
Of course I was worried about him getting up in the middle of the night and getting into something he shouldn't so I had Dustin move the camera in his room into an upper corner.  We had to keep going back into our room to test out its new position! 
We hung out in his room for a while so he could get used to his new bed 
At first he was SO excited to climb in bed.  Then we did our little bed-time routine and I told him night-night.  We set the sleep timer on his TV and walked out of his room shutting the door.
Melt. Down.
He cried at his door for about 5 minutes.  Dustin and I were glued to the TV in our room watching him and I felt so bad.  Then he climbed in his bed and put his arms behind his Head, watched the Bulls and fell asleep about 10 minutes later!  We've had 3 successful nights with NO issues!!!  I'm so proud of my big boy :)

A Boy & His Boots

Bug Boots

If you have seen my little man lately (you haven't seen him on here thats for sure!) you may have noticed that he will only wear boots now.  It doesn't really matter what kind of boots - he loves them all!

Fire Boots

 I can't wait to see him this summer because I'm sure he'll be wearing them with his shorts.  But thats alright, whatever makes him happy!

Asher's latest pair?  These cowboy boots that Mom bought him on Saturday.  He looks so cute!

He's wearing these bad boys today.

Shit Kickers
And I love these little guys.  I got these at Walmart months ago and have been waiting for him to grow into them.

On Sunday morning Asher refused to wear clothes.  He just wanted to wear his boots.

He wanted Mommy to wear her boots too!

I get this look a lot.

I'm Alive

Yeah I know, its been a while.  I just haven't had much to say or many pictures lately.  Not too much has been happening around our house lately.  Asher hasn't been feeling the best which makes for a very cranky boy.  I took him to the Dr yesterday thinking he had another ear infection - but for once he didn't.  She said it was probably just his teeth and he's starting to get a cold too.  Mr Independent has now decided that I cannot carry him anywhere.  He insists on walking out to the car and into either Mom's or Lori's every morning.  Which I'm fine with, it just takes twice as long.

Besides being Mr Independent he is Mr Helpful.  He likes to take our empty glasses and put them in the sink.  Although sometimes he can't see where the sink is and misses and whatever is left in the bottom of the glass is spilled on the counter.  Oh, well.  He also likes to stack toys and stand on them to turn off the lights.  What a helpful little boy!  But in the middle of the night Friday night I woke up FREEZING.  I woke Dustin up to tell him to go check it out.  He came back and said that it was 60 degrees in our house because someone had turned our heat off.  I wonder if a certain little boy couldn't keep his hands off of the thermostat.  His other favorite things to do right now are laundry and putting money in his piggy bank.  I don't think he gets the laundry thing from me but he does get the money thing from his mother.  Last night Mom was over and there was some change sitting on the table and Asher was screaming "Money!"  She had to laugh because most of his words are hard to understand at the least but that one comes out clear as can be ;)
