525,600 minutes

My baby Asher was a year old yesterday. I have been so sad about it, crying in the grocery when I saw a newborn sad. I am such a wreck. I swear, I am not one of those people who can't wait for their kids to grow up. I love them just the way they are, cute, little, and no matter how much they drive me crazy I know as they get older, it will only get crazier. I love all their stages but I just love them as babies so much. And those grannies in the grocery are right on, it does go by so fast. It seems like I was still preggers yesterday. Now he is mobile, eating Oreos, and throwing tantrums. With that being said, he is such a sweet baby. He is so cute, so loveable, so smart, so curious! We all love him dearly.

Here are a few highlights of him lately...

standing up in the crib hollering for me to get him
 birthday pictures on the stairs
 watching daddy grill dinner
 more stair pictures
 he was pretty much scared to death and wanted me to hold him, I tried like crazy to get him to smile, didn't work
 so we sat in the living room instead
 well, he sat for 26 seconds before he decided to find something else better to do
 china cabinet destruction any moment now, he is an expert crawler, by the way

 finally, I got him looking cute sitting on Tanner's bed, love that dimple
 he loves balls, just like Parker
 he also like Hans and Franz, my new washer and dryer, he especially likes the Franz's dryer vent, he steals it and hides it at least once a day
 he loves to drink beer
 OMG, I'm kidding! He likes to play in the pantry. These were just extra beers that didn't fit in the fridge. 'They make a cool bangy noise when you drop them on the floor," Asher says.
 looking out the window at the wildlife, in this case, a panting hot dog who wanted to come in
 he is an official tornado, F5 version. the boy can empty a drawer or basket faster than you can tell him to stop
 see, he's cute but deadly
 when it all began, 525,600 minutes ago.
Ok, now I'm crying again.

Happy Birthday sweet, little Asher! That did go fast Jenny!! If it seemed fast to me, it must have been crazy fast for you guys! I still look at Eden every day and ask, "How is it that you are 2 1/2?" We still have so much fun to look forward to with them, but I love babies too and the time is fleeting...sigh...

Well, Happy Birthday again Asher! You are an adorable boy!
