Thanksgiving

We had a great Thanksgiving. We went up to Helen, GA with my family and my brother-in-law's family. It was so great for all of us to be together and Asher had a blast because Brooke was there. He ADORES Brooke and when she is not around he yells out "ROOKE" looking for her. He copies everything she does and follows her around. It's so cute to see them play together. They just laugh and laugh together. And they give eachother hugs, which I think is especially cute. Dylan wasn't feeling to hot so we didn't get too many pictures of him, but soon enough it will be great to see them all run around together!






Dee Dee and all her little ones!


It's really hard these days to get pictures of Asher. He is on the move and doesn't want to stop for a second!



I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. We have a lot to be thankful for. A great family, good jobs, and a happy healthy little boy. Couldn't ask for anything more.

Also... if you were wondering about the last post about Shutterfly... I did that so I could win 50 free christmas cards.. :) But I really do like their stuff, but I like free stuff too! LOL.

Happy Halloween!!

We had a great weekend. Our little cow moo'ed his way around town this weekend. He had 2 parties at school and a party last night! He didn't mind wearing his Halloween costume at all so it was great. He was so stinkin' adorable as a cow. :) Unfortunately today after his nap, he was blazing hot and had a 102.7 fever so we didn't get to celebrate with MaMaw and PaPaw. :( But hopefully tomorrow he will be feeling better. Too much moo'ing caught up I guess..









I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!!!

My Big Boy

We had a nice relaxing weekend this past weekend. One of my bf's from high school came up Friday night, Georgia won on Saturday, and had a relaxing day on Sunday. Saturday morning Asher and I went out to a park nearby so I could take some pictures of him. He is getting so big! He is loving school now, talking up a storm, and climbing on everything.

This weekend he learned how to get on/off the couch all by himself, say "up" when he wants to get picked up, and say "I didn't" when you ask him something. I don't think he really knows what that one means, but if you ask him a question he answers with "I didn't". For example, I'll ask him "Did you throw your milk?" and he answers "I didn't" and then just laughs and laughs. And it's always something that he just did. ha. I have a feeling I'll be hearing that for the next 20 years!

Here are some cute pics from the weekend!

I'm Back!

Whoa... it's been a while since I've posted!!! I don't know if I wanted a blogging break (or wonders if anyone reads this?)... or I was being lazy.. or what, but it's been a while! We are doing great. We've had a great couple of months. I was off work for a month and really tried not to get on the computer at all. So that was a NICE break.

Asher is almost 18 months now and is getting BIG and SMART! He is talking up a storm. He can say daddy, momma, dog, duck, bye, stuck, oh and his FAVORITE word is Hi. He says Hi to EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE, at ANYTIME! It's so funny to me. We will be walking in a store and EVERYONE that passes he says "Hi" while waving. If they don't acknowledge him he says it louder with the attitude "Hello? Don't you hear me?". It's funny when someone walks by that doesn't want to say hi, but you can't resist the cuteness so they end up saying Hi anyway... LOL. It cracks me up.

We ROCKED Asher's world 2 1/2 weeks ago when he started preschool!!! He has had a hard time adjusting, but finally I think we are making progress. (aka.. no crying all day) !! He just loves his momma, right?... LOL.

Here he is before his 1st day!



He was happy that we were going somewhere, but had no idea what he was in for!!!



Later in the week I came a little early and saw this... LOL. so cute...



We also had family come in town over labor day... We had a beautiful weekend and it's always great to see them.



Asher with his cousins, Emma and Jesse.


The Berry Boys:



During my month off we were busy, busy, busy.. Here are a couple cute pics i got.


Go Dawgs! (They need all the help that they can this year... )

July 4th Weekend!

So I know it's WAY past the 4th of July... But I had wrote this blog up and forgot to post it... better late than never, right? Asher and I head to Canada tomorrow so wish us luck and I'll post some pictures when we get back!!!

Also.. we had A's 15 Month check up yesterday.. he is now 24.2 pounds and 31.5 inches long! He is in the 70% for height and 60% for weight. He looks just perfect! (but I already knew that... LOL)

We had a GREAT July 4th weekend! It was a beautiful weekend (not 100 degrees) here and we spent a lot of time outside this weekend. Saturday night Asher saw his first fireworks show! We went to a friends for a cookout and on our way home stopped and watched the Chattanooga city fireworks. We kept Asher out a little over his bed time so he was a little tired, but he hung in there like a trooper!



Then on Sunday we went to MaMaw and PaPaw's. We played outside in our sprinkler pool...



And ran all around... naked.



Who needs a bathing suit when your at the farm!!!! (look at that cute little tush!)

Then for dinner Asher tried MaMaw's corn... and wow... did he love it! I know I've mentioned how much he loves food, but man, he had a blast. I think it was also because he was so funny and we were all cracking up laughing at him... but he held that corn like a regular and thought it was so funny when he actually got some in his mouth!!!


His little smile makes my heart melt!



Then Monday we spent all day at the pool! Such a fun weekend!

Happy Birthday Dylan!

This past weekend we celebrated my nephew Dylan's 1st birthday!!! Yay! We had a great time. It was a kiddie pool party and Asher had a blast. He LOVES going to Aunt Jaime's and Uncle John's house because there is so much fun stuff to do there! It's so great that Asher and Dylan are the same age. :)



We played in lots of water...






Did some relaxing...







And ate some cake!




Happy Birthday Dylan! We love you!

Also, please laugh at the cake. LOL. Jaime and I made the brillant decision to make him a truck/car smash cake the night before his party and didn't start until 11pm. Ha! But when the cake starting sinking on one side we knew we were in trouble... I'm crafty in many ways, but when it comes to baking I think i'll leave it up to the pros....LOL!!! (it did provide lots of laughter so that was worth it - I love my sis!)

Asher's First Playgroup!

Today we went to Asher's first playgroup! It was great. I had met a couple other mom's in Asher's kindermusic class and joined their playgroup! A wonderful mom had everyone over and we had a "Water Play" day! Asher had a blast. He was amazed at all the kids. He never really gets to play with other kids so I this was really good for him and wore him out!





Here is Asher with his little girlfriend, Anna Grace. Anna Grace's mom was in my sorority with me at Georgia!




Can you believe we got a group picture???



As we were taking the group picture everyone was yelling "CHEESE" and it made Asher upset! HA. I think it was too overwhelming for him and he stood right up and ran towards me and started crying.. LOL. Oh my little boy!

Notice everyone is fine.. still sitting... except Asher had enough! Too many people yelling! I'm outta here! (then he darted towards me crying... LOL)

Hilton Head

We just got back from a vacation to Hilton Head Island. We had a great time! We all needed a vacation and so we celebrated Josh's birthday and Mother's Day by going to the beach! We always have the best time on vacation so it's nice to get away. Asher did great and had a blast. I really think this week he graduated to being a toddler. He isn't a baby anymore... :(

He got over his fear of the ocean and realized how much he loves the water. He learned how to stand up from a sitting position and walk around all by himself. He can walk/run anywhere now and nothing is going to stop him, and he likes pizza and ice cream! LOL. He was such a big boy this week.

So this is one of my all time favorite pictures...



and this one too! They look SO cute together! Such cute boys!



Outside of our place were these amazing flowers..








All week long we rode bikes everywhere. We tried to not get in the car at all. We rented a kid cart for Asher and he loved it. He actually fell asleep in it a couple times. Can you see his little head popping out of the cart??



My cutie in his ride...



The first few days at the beach Asher was a little scared of the ocean, but he warmed up and towards the end of the week the minute I let go of his hand he DARTED to the water. He couldn't get enough of the waves.





And we liked playing in the sand too..







At the end of the week our friends Brian and Jennifer came down to celebrate Josh's birthday.
We had a great time. Went to the pool, beach, and oh yeah.. Jennifer and I kicked the guys butts at Cranium. :)





It was so great to spend the week together! Asher really had a great time... and so did we!




I can't wait until our next vacation!!!!
