We visited the doctor today and it was the worst doctor's visit yet. Asher was mad from the second we took him into the room and let us know the entire time there and all the way home. Well, to be fair, the ride home was probably because of the 3 shots he got. Poor baby. I hate shot visits! Not vacinating has crossed my mind simply for the fact that those parents don't have to have shot visits. They may have measles, polio and a myriad of other visits, but no shot visits for them. Anyway...Asher is now 23 lb and 34 in. That is 10-25% in weight and 90% in height. In other words, just like his mama was. We are having a heck of a time with diaper changes. He kicks and kicks and kicks. He has spent a bit of time in the crib and hopefully he will soon make the connection between kicking mama and spending some quality time in his crib. All is well here, hope all is well there!

We had a good Christmas. No throwing up baby this year (wahoo!), but he was a cranky, fevery boy all day. I think he had a quick virus run through his system. Other than that we had a great day! Nana, Granpapa, and Unc Quinn came over around 8:30 and the day of fun began! Asher got spoiled (next year it is "Something you want, something you need, something to play with, something to read and something for someone in need."). His favorite gift by far was the ride-in tugboat from Nana and Granpapa. Little Tykes doesn't make them anymore so Mom tracked a used one down on ebay (good job for buying used!) and sat a the computer until she won it. It is the first and last thing he plays with everyday. Asher likes knocking down the towers Dada makes and walks around the house shaking his maraccas! He also got books galore (I have to admit that I went overboard there)! We really loved everything we got and are blessed to have families who are generous with us. We hope everyone had a blessed day and can't wait to see/talk to you all soon!
