Last week we spent a week in Destin, FL.  It was GREAT.  The weather was beautiful, the beaches were amazing, and the trip was very relaxing. We had no agenda so all we did was go to the ocean or the pool everday.  I wish we could do that every week!  

Asher did great.  We only had to stop once to feed him on the way down and the way back.  And he loved all the activity and excitement. 

Asher went in both the ocean and the pool!  Each time he would just kick his little legs around.  :)


We took walks on the beach at night and watched the sunset.


At the end of the week Josh's parents came down to join us!  We had a great time.  Relaxed, had dinner, played a little putt-putt..  (oh.. you might ask who won putt-putt???  I BEAT EVERYONE.. including Jim.  I WON!!!! ). 


My favorite picture from the week... LOL.  Did I mention that I beat Jim at putt-putt?

The trip was a success!  Can't wait until our next beach trip! 
4 month checkup! 08/19/2009
We had our 4 month checkup today and Asher looks great!!!  He weighs 15 pounds 11 ounces and is 25 1/2 inches long.  He is still in the 75% for both height and weight. 

Here are some of our 4 month pictures...
We decided to try out rice cereal last week!  It was a big hit.  Asher LOVED it and would start to cry if I didn't feed him fast enough.  The first time I made the rice cereal way too soupy so not much actually went in his mouth, but the second time it was a little thicker and he ate it all up!  I don't think I'm going to have a picker eater on my hands...  Instead of posted a zillion cute pics, here is a video.  :)  (well and some cute pics)   

Before the eating began!   I know he is a little too small for this seat, but doesn't he look too cute? 



Last weekend we celebrated Dee Dee's birthday!  We had a great time.  We met halfway between Chattanooga and Atlanta at Lake Allatoona and spent the day at the lake.  It was nice and relaxing and so great to see my family.  I had missed them!!!

Happy Birthday to you! 
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday dear Dee Dee!! 
Happy Birthday to you!


Asher and Dylan decided to hang out for a little while... 

Asher has offically rolled over both ways!  Yesterday after he figured out how to get from his back to his stomach he wouldn't stop!!!  I couldn't keep him on his back!  I was sitting right next to him working and he was playing under his activity gym and all the sudden I looked over and he was on his stomach!  I thought to myself.. "humm... didn't I put him down on his back?"  Sure enough I did. So I grabbed the video camera and made him roll over a zillion times.. or until he spit up a little. (I think he got dizzy.. LOL).  Enjoy!
This past weekend we went to visit our dear friends Nikki and Rhett...  And Asher got to meet his new girlfriend, Marlee!!!   Marlee was born just 10 days before Asher.  So we had to introduce them early b/c they will get married one day right???  LOL.  Marlee is a doll.. so cute and sweet.  Both babies were GREAT and let us parents have a blast.   Marlee's weight is right on track, but Asher was HUGE next to her!  Thanks for having us over Nikki and Rhett!  We had a blast and need to do it again soon. :)  
Big sister Ava was great with both Asher and Marlee!
