5 Weeks Ago

It's hard to believe that our little boy is over 5 weeks old!  It's even harder to believe that in no time he will be the same size as Addalie and we will wonder where the time went.  Asher is growing like crazy is such a good baby.  We had to take him to the doctor on Monday for a check up, and he weighed in at 9lbs 5oz, which means he gained almost 2 lbs in less than 3 weeks!  We'll be starting him in on the weights soon. 

For Asher's birth we were so blessed to have our great friend Susan take pictures for us.  That was one of our biggest disappointments when Addalie was born because we didn't have anyone there to take pictures during or afterwards since we were in Ohio.  Now we haven't been around a lot of birth photographers, but we can guarantee that Susan Kedroski is the best by far!  We are so thankful for her and the memories we will always have from the moments she captured.  Thanks Susan!

Here are some of our favorites....

So I've been terrible about blogging, or communicating with the outside world in general. I've relied on Daniel to communicate with people and keep the blog up, and look how he has slacked this past week! Just kidding, I honestly don't know what I would do without him. Since we had Asher, we have truly had to be more of a team and I have a whole new appreciation for him!

So... what's been going on with us? Not a whole lot, really. We took a quick trip to Welch last week to see my parents and let Asher meet some family. I just needed to see my parents, you know? We are looking at houses to rent pretty often, and so far have come up with nothing. Unfortunately, we will have to raise our price range if we want anything decent. We have gone back and forth about possibly staying in this apartment, but if we are going to pay that much and are not doing CARES, we would prefer a house with a yard and no stairs! I had no problem with these stairs until I got pregnant, and since I've had Asher, the dislike has grown to hatred! I have a toddler who will hardly go up and down on her own, and when she does, it takes twenty minutes, so I give in and haul both children up and down two flight of stairs way too often. I've started neglecting the upstairs rooms because I just don't want to go through the trouble to go up there! Please pray that we find a house that works for us soon!

I'm still not in the swing of not working or not doing CARES. I'm grateful that I don't have to worry about it because the kids take up all my time, but it's the first time I haven't had a side job on my mind always. I am used to getting out more! I'm kinda ready for summer when all the moms from church have fun play dates and activities planned frequently! I mean, I'm super busy around the house, but I just feel better when I spend time out and about. Again, I think a yard would help! Ok, enough rambling about nothing interesting, here are a few pics! My mom threatened me not to put the pig tails one up, but what's she gonna do about it?
