blessing day and smiling

Today Quinn blessed Asher in church. Most of my family (minus the Brijs family) arrived into town yesterday. They were all able to go to church with us today so we decided to bless Asher. Quinn gave such a beautiful blessing. It was a really neat experience to hear your husband bless your child. Here are a few pics that we snapped after the blessing.

Uncle Cameron also worked with Asher all afternoon to get him to smile. Here are the results:

one month

Asher turned one month old today. I can't believe it has been that long already. Some days it feels like he has been here forever, other days I feel just as overwhelmed as the first days home from the hospital.

In honor of his birthday we are making a cast of his footprint that some friends gave us tonight for FHE.

Asher is a very good eater. He pretty much eats every two hours and if something delays this he is not a happy camper. He is not the best sleeper but we are working on it.

Asher has marked his territory all over the house. He has spit up on the couch, my pillow, my bed, the floor, etc... I've found poo on my pants, the boppy, Quinn's shirt, my hands and Quinn's hands. Fun, fun. And for people who know me they know I don't do well with poo.

He is growing like a weed. I measured him for fun last night and he is just about 24 inches long wonder he eats like crazy. This outfit he is wearing is even a 3-6 months.

We also just got back from my postpartum check up. The doctor said everything is fine and I was happy to see I only have 3.5 lbs to get rid of to get down to pre-baby weight.

he is a fan of Lost

This is a picture of Asher we took Wednesday night as he pondered the deeper mysteries of Lost. He seemed to really enjoy the show. Although, he thought the episode could have revealed a bit more.

happy easter!

The Easter Bunny found Asher this morning. He brought him a stuffed bunny, a onesie from Game Developers Conference, a rattle/toy that attaches to his car seat and interestingly enough an assortment of his parents favorite Easter candy.

Asher and I also braved church for Easter Sunday. Isn't his outfit cute? We only went to Sacrament as we are going to slowly ease into this 9 am church thing.

Asher went to the pediatrician today. I started getting ready at 7 am to make it to the doctor's by 10 am. We made it. He was so good the whole time (minus the bloody murder screaming when they pricked his heel but that is understandable). He is growing like crazy. He has gained 10 ounces and now weighs 8 lbs 8 oz and has grown an inch. The doctor says he looks perfect and is doing beautifully.

While I was at the doctors, Quinn was picking up his mom from the airport. We are all so excited to have her here and look forward to lots of fun during her visit.

Here is a picture for my mom. She requested an updated picture. This is Asher just before we headed out to the pediatrician.
