Angel Loaf

We just can't get enough of this guy. He is so happy all the time. Plus, his thighs are deliciously enormous.

Asher's latest feats are sitting up, eating a lot, and almost crawling but face-plowing into the carpet instead. His babyhood is flying by!

If you don't read modmom, you probably should. Especially if you want to win a the breast cancer awareness Dyson. I do.

A bee

Ava: "Look Mom! I'm a bee! I want to climb that. " (as she points to the wall, in her costume from Halloween 2005)

First Day of Joy School

Ava loved Joy School and she was so cute, answering questions in her little language of meows and clicks.

more beach pics

We finally made it to the beach this summer! I get this craving for the beach every year around February, and it usually doesn't go away until I get to the beach. This year I wasn't sure if I would make it, because it is kind of a pain to bring a newborn to the beach. We decided it was worth it to make a vacation out of it and get a hotel room on the beach so Asher could still get enough naptime in and we could get enough beach time in.

This is Ryan and Ava on our boat tour around the sound. It was really a fun tour, and we enjoyed dreaming about owning a beach house someday. Someday when we have a few million $ to spare.
Here is Ryan boogie boarding. The water was perfect (81 degrees) and the weather was perfect, too (overcast and 80's, not too hot!). Look at that beautiful water. Have I converted you out-of-state people to the NC coast yet?
Ava met a friend, Olivia, at the beach. They are only a few weeks apart in age and they happen to live in the same town as us. Here is Ava, Olivia, and Olivia's Pop. Ava was ready to join their family.
I have always been in love with the beach, but seeing Ava splash in the water or holding asher as he gets lulled to sleep by watching the water and sea foam swirl around my feet is incomparable sheer joy.

Ava and Asher

Ava's been really good to take care of Asher while I blow dry my hair or gather laundry. Her new favorite thing is to cradle him, which looks hilarious as he is nearly as big as she is.

Asher is such a good sport.
