A good cause...

Somehow I came across this family blog... i think it I found it from a friend, of a friend's blog... I don't really remember. But the little boy, Jonah, is about Asher's age and has a rare skin disease, EB. I don't know much about the disease, but it really touched me, and reminded me that Josh and I are so blessed to have such a healthy little boy. I think we take it for granted sometimes. I try everyday to to be thankful for everything I have in my life, even on those bad mood days. :)

So Jonah's family and friends are holding an auction and all the proceeds to go DebRA(http://www.debra.org/), which is the organization trying to find a cure for EB. They have a lot of great stuff.. and for those of you Winston-Salem folks... they have some stuff like photographers, in your area... they also have gift cards, so even if you pay $20 for a $20 gift card.. at least that $20 is going to a good cause!!

Here are the websites in case you are interested. The auction is from Feb. 23-27th. Go and bid so they can find a cure for this cute boy, Jonah!!!

My two teeth!

Asher has 2 teeth... and here is a good picture of them! (I've been trying hard to see them in a picture) He is working on getting the top two now.. hopefully that will go as smoothly as the bottom two did. :)

9 Month Checkup (at 10 months old)

Today we went to the Dr. for our checkup. Asher weighs 20 pounds 6 ounces and is 29 inches long! He is in the 75% for height, 50% for weight, and his head size is in the 50%. So he is doing great! He wasn't too thrilled about the Dr. examining him and cried like the dr. was an alien, but did great when he got his toe pricked for a blood sample. You think it would have been the opposite! Since we don't have any food allergies in our family Asher has the go ahead to eat whatever he wants! (except honey). So that's fun. Tonight he tried Eggplant.. LOL. I guess I need to start cooking more. :( . I've also got to try to get him to drink more milk... He has been refusing it the past couple weeks and I'm lucky to get 5-10 ounces in him a day now.. but he should be getting 20 ounces.. we'll see if that ever happens!

Birthday Weekend!

So I'm always a couple weeks behind on my blog.. but a couple weeks ago Jaime, John, Brooke, and Dylan came up to Chattanooga for my birthday!  It was great to have them up here.  The weather was bad, but we did manage to venture out to the playground.  And Brooke, Jaime, and I baked a cake!  Brooke loved it and LOVED eating the icing.  :)   A 2 year old can't have a birthday without a cake, right?
