He's Growing!

Today is a very big day...Asher has officially been out in the world for seven months! It is so hard for me to believe. It seems like yesterday I was in the hospital giving birth. The time has passed in the blink of an eye. It's both exciting and heart-breaking. I sometimes wish I could freeze time and both my boys would just stop growing. They would stay three and seven months forever. I know that's not possible, so I better just continue cherishing every moment (ok, truth be told, there are some moments that I find hard to cherish...for instance, I could definitely do without the occasional tantrum at naptime from Tristan and the spit up from Asher ;) ).
In the short seven months Asher has been with us, he has brought so much joy to our lives. While he definitely shares some of Tristan's features, he is definitely his own man. He has Channing's personality...what a blessing! He is laid back and happy, an easy baby (as long as he's got his bed at bedtime and naptime). He hasn't been the best sleeper, but in the past couple of weeks, he's gotten two teeth so I think that's a contributing factor (I found the second one after church Sunday. Leisha, he's ready for his steak!). He is a huge momma's boy (which of course, I LOVE). He is a little ham who seeks out the attention of others, especially his daddy, when he's preparing to do something cool. He loves to hang upside down, and he enjoys watching Praise Baby. He really is such a wonderful addition to our family, and I am so thankful to God for sharing him with me.
HAPPY SEVEN MONTHS, ASHER!!! I'm looking forward to many many many more!!!
