no matter what the day has held, or what time it is, who could be grumpy when what you find is this?!

which brings me to all the changes in asher these days.
we wake up happy, and quite content, to lay in our bed, quiet, sucking our thumb, looking at nothing inparticular, until mama comes to get us.
and waking up only occurs after a full nights sleep. and by full, i mean 12 hours. yes, casey and i understand this is rare; and yes, we RELISH it.

great pleasure is had in finding our toes, especially when they have socks covering them to tug on.

smiles, giggles, and gurgles. the other night, while doing the standard go-to-sleep routine, instead of nursing, asher looked up at me, got a huge cheesy smile on his face, and started laughing. i did not help the situation by cracking up, which sent us both into hysterics.

and everything goes in the mouth these days. socks, thumb, fingers, fists, thumb, toys, books, fingers, fists, did i mention his thumb.

standing. asher has expressed no interest in rolling over, but the minute you get him in a sitting position, he wants to stand. and, often, he finds this the best time to squeal.

he has taken to sitting on casey's lap during dinner, and following with his eyes much of the food to daddy's mouth. i sense food being introduced to asher's diet perhaps a little sooner than i anticipated.

casey and i comment regularly on what a sweet baby asher is. and, living up to his namesake, he continues to be quick to laugh. these days are very good. we consider ourselves extremely blessed.

Oh little (big) Asher, what a sweetie peetie. How could he not be, though, with a mama and papa like he has. And, yes, isn't it wonderful to have babies who sleep 12 hours straight? Oh wait, Amelia and Sam sleep 12 minutes straight!! Soak it up, Jen

Way to go on the night sleeping, Asher. 12 hours a stretch is definitely worthy of bragging rights! :-)
miss you guys!
