When I was pregnant people presented me with ALL sorts of advice. One precious token was "sleep now, because when Asher gets here, you won't get any sleep." I totally ignored this, and I wish I had listened.
Another piece of advice given to me was write down little funny/cute things your baby does because you won't remember all of them even if you think you will. Thus, I have this blog, so I will keep a running list that hopefully Asher can even look back on later in life. So far I love that Asher has started smiling! He started making cooing sounds too and it makes my heart melt each time. He is very calm while getting his hair washed, but horrible when it comes to changing diapers or outfits. He won't go to sleep at night without his swaddle blanket on, so I hope they eventually make those in adult sizes...no I'm just kidding, but that would be funny. Having traveled from the Gulf of Mexico all the way north to Oklahoma with just Asher and I, I discovered quickly that he does very well in the car. I feel like his car seat is magic. Anytime he sits in it, he falls instantly asleep. Here is a funny adventure we had on our car trip: I stopped at a McDonalds about and hour after feeding him to change his diaper. I think that bathroom changers are extremely germy and gross so I decided to change Asher in the back seat. He was a little upset when I woke him up as I was getting him out of his car seat, so I held him for a few seconds. Upon removing him from my chest, I noticed that there was poop smeared all over my white T-shirt. Great. So I laid the crying baby on the seat that is not flat, but angles just enough to make him slide into the seatbelt fastner. As I go to change this monsterous diaper I realize that I have about 3 wipes that I skillfully used. Feeling rather proud of myself that I handled this so well, Asher then began to pee on the backseat...of course. We changed to a new outfit...yes WE had to change into new outfits inside the McDonalds bathroom.
Recently, my friend Lauren took one month photos of the baby. Here are some of them. She did a great job. After the photo shoot we agreed he doesn't have a modeling career. We couldn't get him to go to sleep no matter how hard we tried, and he successfully soiled 3 blankets during the short photo shoot. It would be a difficult job being an infant photographer!
"The end of a matter is better and its beginning, and patience is better than pride."
And on a much lighter note, here are random cute pictures of Asher!
