One year!!!

Well, again I'm a horrible blogger. And I really don't even know how many people were reading this. But since I have a few minutes, I'll update quickly. Asher turned one on June 2, 2010. He is such a big boy! 23 pounds and 30 1/2 inches long. He is close to walking. Crawling and cruising all over the house. We don't get much done because we are constantly chasing him. He is quite the character. He is very picky. He sleeps good. He has a temper. But hes soooo silly. He likes making "quack quack" noises and loves the dogs. He doesn't cuddle, at all, but he is starting to give us kisses. He would live outside if he let him. He has no temperature gauge (so the 100 degree Texas heat doesn't phase him). He loves books. LOVES them. We read books all day. He also loves dirt, anything with wheels and pulling the blinds :) He is all boy. But we wouldn't have it any other way.
In another exciting Garrett family news, we are expecting baby #2. We call it Baby Dos. We decided not to find out if this one is a boy or girl. It's due September 10. I'm 29 weeks along already. Its gone by really fast! Some days I think its a girl, some days I think its a boy. The best part about having them so close in age is that we really don't have to get many new baby things. We registered for a handful of things, but otherwise we'll be able to use all of Asher's stuff. I'm not sure how Asher will adjust to being a big brother. I've held other babies in front of him to see what he'd do but he doesn't show much emotion, so thats good. I guess we'll see in September if he has a little brother or little sister!

Take care. And lets be real, I probably won't update again soon. Haha. But feel free to email me anytime! I love showing off pics of Asher!

I'm a terrible blogger...

So sorry for not keeping up with the blog. SOMETHING has kept me quite busy the past few months. Haha! Asher is now 7 months old. He weighs over 18lbs and is perfectly healthy. We had a wonderful first Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's as a family. We went to South Texas for Thanksgiving and New Year's but stayed at our house for Christmas. We had a blast. Spending our first Christmas as a family at home was wonderful. Of course we missed everyone but we got on Skype alot so everyone could see Asher! He got so many wonderful gifts. We are so blessed.

He is really starting to turn into a little person. He is still really quirky but is starting to entertain himself better which helps me out a lot. He loves his jumper. We are currently working on crawling :) although I'm not sure I'm quite ready for that. He already keeps me on my toes.

He sleeps 12 hours each night! WOO HOO! We have our bad nights occasionally but I really can't complain. We've come a long way.

He loves the dogs. I wish they showed him just a little bit more attention but they are hesistant. I think the random yelling scares them. Speaking of yelling, he is so loud. SO LOUD. It's cute but I don't know where this voice is coming from.

He also already has two teeth. They came in at 5 months and he's been working on the next ones for awhile. I hope they come in soon because he is really in pain sometimes.

I'm really enjoying staying home with him and constantly taking pictures. He's a mess but we have fun together. Here are some pictures :)
