Asher is crawling a little now. He struggles because of his nerve injury and he tires out pretty easily but he's doing it. A week before his first birthday.
He loves to walk. I hold his little hands and he'll walk in the living room to the kitchen and back.
I do it until my back hurts and he cries for more.
He is eating a little better. We started with one shred of finely shredded cheese.
He chewed it and swallowed, not gagging. We've progressed to a pinch of cheese.
He likes the Cheetos white cheddar puffs, too. He sucks on 'em til there soggy. yum.
He feels heavier (I think). Tomorrow is another weigh in. I don't want to get my hopes up but I really think he's gained.
He's got such a little personality and makes me smile until my cheeks hurt.
Even though today he didn't want me to put him down and he only took one nap.
Me, no shower, mash potatoes on my shirt, on my face, and in my greasy hair.
Yep, that's what Heath GOT to come home to.
Noah has been so funny lately. His speech has improved so much.
He loves to sing and dance. Sometimes at the same time.
He knows all the dances in the new Willy Wonka.
He loves to sing Twinkle, Twinkle, The Itsy Bitsy Spider, Jesus wants me for a Sunbeam, and I am a Child of God.
I think I'll start a new section of my posts called NOAH SAYS.
"I luf gwapes" (from the new willy wonka, the crazy grandma randomly says it)
"I said good day, sir!" (at the end of the old willy wonka)
And yesterday he said to me, "Jesus Christ, Amen?"
He wanted to say a prayer so I said OK.
He told me to close my eye so I did.
He started out saying,"Heav'nly Father" I couldn't help but open my eyes.
I saw the cutest thing. Noah had both of his hands on Asher's head.
He continued, "nank you forw today. Jesus Chwist, Amen.
He has seen Asher get a few Priesthood blessings so he thought he would try it, I guess.
For some reason Noah thinks it's great to get the roll of scotch tape and wrap it around his waste. (until it's ALL gone). Tape around the waist + daddy cutting it off = hole in the sweater vest. nice!
He calls these his shark teeth.
Well, It's Heath's birthday tomorrow. Happy Birthday you cute, camo wearing, pottery making, sandwich loving, great guy. We had a little birthday party for him on Sunday. Some friends from church were coming over for dinner and the surprise was on them. When they got to our house I decided I was going to make a cake. I found three candles and we sang happy birthday. It wasn't much but Heath starts school this week, Asher has 2 appointments just tomorrow and we have church.
Our birthday guests. Sister Rowles and her son,Chase.
Noah helped cut the cake. Great Job!
HAPPY 29th BIRTHDAY HEATHY!
WE LOVE YOU!!!
Good day, Sir!
