A little bit of Asher
Our little man is quickly filling all the extra spaces in our lives and hearts. Even more so it feels as it my heart has been expanding to make room for the increasing love that I feel for him every new day. He is very responsive and will lock eyes with anyone who will take the time to drink him in. I am constantly amazed that this little person is my baby boy and that he is more than just a baby; he is this incredible life unfolding before my eyes. Everyone tells me that ‘they grow so fast’. Even the garbage man this morning as he wheeled my trash can back to the curb while I was standing on the porch with Asher.
Lately I’ve been stretching him out on my chest and rolling from side to side with him, tickling him and kissing his cheek without taking my lips away. He smiles all the time and is so close to laughter but all he can get out are wheezes and snorts. We are grateful for each moment of every day with him. He is a gift.
Anna has been doing an incredible job being ‘Mom’. She really was built for this role. She has embraced motherhood with all that she is, with all joy and love. Our pediatrician told her the other day that he could tell she was a good mom. After Anna said ‘thank you’ he got serious and reemphasized, “No really, I see a lot of mothers and I can tell that you are a fantastic mother! You need to go home and tell your husband I said so and that he should buy you flowers.”
It’s true. Asher just knows through and through that he is loved. People that meet him for the first time usually comment that he is so happy. Asher means ‘happy’. Destiny!
