Asher's Got a New Ride

Shortly before Asher's Birthday Dustin bought an old 4 wheeler that supposedly needed only one part... we replaced that and between Dustin and our Dad's they still weren't able to fix it.  Which was OK with me because the thing was ancient and didn't seem too safe.  So we just kind of gave up on it.  But of course Asher was disappointed that it never ran.  Dustin and I had told Asher we would get him something else next year.  End of discussion.

A few weeks ago we were hanging out at Mom and Dad's on a Saturday.  Dad got a phone call and jumped in his truck and left without telling anyone where he was going.  I just figured he got a call for a tow.  When he got back he had this in the back of his truck...
We were all suprised - especially Meme who didn't know Papa was buying his lil guy a new 4 wheeler :)
 Asher was soooo "cited!"

 Dad had me in mind when he got one with a button I can push to shut it down... don't want him going too fast.
 On the other hand - maybe he wasn't thinking of me...

 What a cheesy smile :)

Catching Up

Thanks to my Brother I finally have Internet back!  And although I've hardly taken any pictures I was a little embarrassed when I realized I hadn't really taken any pictures off of my camera.  So here is a hodge podge of what we've been up to the last few weeks.
We sent out Asher's Birthday Thank You's.
Doesn't he look thrilled.
I took Asher's picture for Dustin's Dad for Father's Day in his new Popejoy shirt.
 I tried to get one of both boys...
But it just didn't work. 
We went to Dustin's Dad and Sue's one Sunday to celebrate the June Birthdays.

Pictures from my phone

Here are the last week's photos from my phone.  Sadly its the only thing I'm using to take pictures these days.

Ok, so I was totally supposed to go to Dustin's cousin's wedding last Saturday.  I was all dressed and everything.  Then I took one look at this little guy and just knew I wasn't ready to leave him.... especially at just 3 weeks!

The Boys Stats

Asher and Adler both had appointments with Dr Austman today.  Asher for his 3 year well child and Adler for his 1 month well baby.  Things did NOT go well.  Asher was freaking out from the time he woke up this morning about going to the Dr.  I'll spare you all the details but just know that I needed a stiff drink by the time we were done...

Asher @ 3 years:
Weight: 34 lbs
Height: 40 inches

Adler @ 2 Weeks
9 lbs 8 oz

Adler @ 4 Weeks
10 lbs 4 oz

Dr A also heard a murmur while checking Adler's heart.  We have an appointment in Peoria on Friday to have an echo done to check everything out.  At this point I'm not too concerned.  I think most murmurs found at this age go away on their own.  My murmur was found at 2 years and although I've always had to follow-up with my cardiologist it hasn't affected my life at all.  I'm just hoping this is nothing at this point.

Kate also took my tape off of my scar since I was too chicken to pull them off.  She told me it looks awesome - I haven't gotten up the courage to look at it yet.  I also had a follow up with her because last week I had mastitis.  It was AWFUL.  I'm feeling much better this week but I'm still having a little trouble nursing on that side.  If we can make it through this we can make it through anything while breastfeeding!

Asher's 3rd Birthday

Asher's Birthday Party was on his actual birthday!  Saturday, June 2nd.  Mom and Dad had the party at their house since I still wasn't feeling up to doing much.  He had a Toy Story themed party and got lots of great gifts!
