i did a guest post

just a little bit about when I found out about Olivia. So go check it out!
oh I love that girl. I love my husband for being an awesome father to Asher & Olivia. Though his role in their lives is very different. & Asher loves Olivia, he gets excited when he sees pictures of her and he gives them kisses. I know that this type of relationship isn't for everyone but for us it is nothing but a tremendous blessing.

We had an absolutely lovely Easter weekend. That started off with an egg hunt. 

Owen&Asher. Once Asher got the hang of it, he started putting eggs in everyone's baskets.


On Easter we went to our friend Bryce's house to see the 6 week old puppies that his dog Maddie just had.

& then we went to the park.
After going down the slides, and playing the swings, he took a break in the shade to dig up some wood chips.

He loves swinging, he gets all relaxed and cuddly. Nic was loving it.
Asher makes me so much excited about Holidays, it was fun to go the egg hunt, and also talk about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Even if he didn't understand much, I know he was having a fun day. I personally had a very special experience this past Sunday, the Lord opened my eyes to some of my struggles & questions. No matter how many times something like happens, I am just as amazed by how much God loves me, that he would speak to me directly.

Here are some more random pics...
Not from Easter, but look how much bigger he is now! 2m & 12m

Asher Ryan One Year Old.

i promise someday i will start blogging regularly again... but for now enjoy these adorable pictures of our boy.

He is such ham! He is always making faces and cracking everyone up. 

My family has a tradition that all the grandkids get their very own stuffed animal from Build-a-Bear. Olivia got a Hello Kitty, Owen got a camo bear named Truck, and Ash got this puppy that he named 'Button'.

Baby Boy-1 Year!!

oh my gosh... my baby is one.

I probably should change the title of this, since technically he is no longer a "baby" but he has graduated to toddler status...

that is happy squeal face.

He is  31 inches (95%) & 22 lbs (38%) & he has 12 teeth!

He loves getting massages

In his first year he went to 3 concerts.
David Crowder Band
Jeremy Camp with Adam Cappa
Rock & Worship roadshow with Mercy Me, Tenth Avenue North, Hawk Nelson... and a few others.
(The last one was Nic's first concert ever)

He is such a mama's boy. I'm lucky enough to be able to stay home with him day after day. & at 12 months he is still nursing, although we are slowly weaning.

he does not like the vacuum

At 12 months he can say: mama, dada, hi, beh-ee button (belly button), nom nom (food/treat), bye, mih (milk), oh wow, what?, rawr,
& he can sign: more, milk, please, eat.

He is such a happy silly boy. Whenever we put music on he has to sing (aah, ahh, ooh) and dance (bouncing, spinning in circles, & the twist)

he loves to wear sunglasses when we put them on him he struts around the house like he is the coolest kid ever.


I love this age that he is at, I swear at each stage I think 'this one is my favorite'. But right now he is silly, and mischievous, and learning so much every day. He blows us away day after day with how smart he is. He has his own unique personality that you can't but fall in love with.
