It's random, lovely, full of misspelled words and terrible punctuation. It's about me, Erin, my family and friends, in real life. There's sugar but no sugar coating.

Well, somebody got me hooked on facebook so I have been ignoring my blog a little. SORRY! Here are some pictures from Asher's latest photo shoot. I don't take the best pictures but I'd like to someday but he's a cutie pie either way. Asher was born Monday, January 26th by emergency c-section. His heart rate kept dropping during contractions and at one point it didn't go back up as quickly as they were hoping. The doctor came in and said it's possible that they might have to do a c-section. 5 min later he came back in with an entire team of worker bees who made me drink some terrible tasting thing, put on a silly blue hat, and say bye to my husband. It was as bad as you are imagining. Just minutes later we had a baby. His cord was around his neck so this saved the kids life. Talk about pain... My epidural wasn't working on the right side so they had to put me under. when i woke I was in terrible pain and the nurse had the nerve to press on my stomach. OUCH!!! Asher was 7 lbs 7 ounces, 21 1/2 inches and as cute as a button. He was jaundice so we were sent home with some lights to string around his abdomen.Now we are at home resting comfortably.
He's a Grad student. He makes pots. He likes hunting and hanging out with his boys. You can visit his blog at www.checkoutmyblogatmyblog.blogspot.com (or click the picture).
"We artist are indestructible, even in a prison cell or a concentration camp I would be almighty in my own world of art. Even if I had to paint my pictures with my wet tongue on the dusty floor of my cell." - Pablo Picasso
Asher helps me develop faith. He has a nerve injury on his right arm. He also has trouble gaining weight. He sees an occupational therapist 2 times a week. He is sweet and shy but has a funny personality.
this is our story.
i called him. he said yes. he kissed me. i said, "i love you." he said, "i like you twelve." (that equals i love you.) he said "will you?" i said, "yes". we got married. he started school. we had noah. i became a mom. he became an artist. we moved to pa. he became a grad student. then came asher and i became the mom of 2. we moved back to utah. he became a teacher. me? the mom of three. we are happy. we are blessed.
