Fall fun!

November 8th, 2011

My oh my have I been slacking in the blogging world....guess I've just been busy! It's true, we've been busy having fun this fall. Up until a few days ago, the weather has been fantastic so we've been trying to take advantage of being outside because soon, that awful white stuff is going to take over and being outside isn't going to be much fun anymore.

Asher started walking at then end of September and he hasn't slowed since. At first, it was just a few wobbly steps and now, he's practically running! It's hard to believe that my little baby boy is growing up so fast. It is so fun to watch him grow and learn. He can point to tractors, trucks, puppies, kitties, chickens and the sun in books now. How can such a small little person be so smart? It's amazing!

A couple of weekends ago we celebrated my niece, Gianna's, 6th birthday. Asher had so much fun playing with all of the kids. It is so fun being close to home now to be able to watch my nieces and nephews grow up and Asher loves being around them! Then, it was his first Halloween. Asher was a little monster...cute as can be! I was worried he would fight being in his costume but he didn't put up a stink at all. I think he thought it was fun. Of course he got some halloween treats (most of which will be eaten by mommy and daddy!)He loved grandma's sugar cookies though...I think this boy may have a sweet tooth already.

In one week, Asher will turn one year old! It hardly seems possible that my teeny, tiny little newborn is already a 1 year old toddler. Where did the time go? Exactly one year ago today, I went in for an ultrasound and was admitted to the hospital immediately due to some complications. I was so worried about my little boy and just prayed that he would be okay. I was hooked up to a monitor and got to listen to that strong little heartbeat 24 hours a day. I got quite used to falling asleep to that beautiful sound. I was there for a week before Asher made his appearance. We were hoping he would stay put for a few more weeks but he had other plans. I can't believe it's already been a year ago. The past year has been amazing, the best I've had! Asher has brought such joy to our lives and I cannot explain how blessed I feel to have him here!

On Sunday, November 13th, we will have family here at the farm to celebrate Asher's 1st birthday. I am soooo excited to get to celebrate such an amazing day! After years of feeling sadness on Gabriel's birthday, it will be a nice change to have a birthday that is filled with joy! I can't wait :D
