5 Months

Our little Ashi-poo is 5 months old today! Part of me can't believe the last 5 months have gone by so quickly; it seems like he should still be a tiny newborn, instead of a good-sized baby! Some 5 month milestones include rolling over both ways, pushing up to his knees and rocking back and forth, creeping by pushing off on his toes, blowing raspberries, grinning and laughing, and just being darn cute! He is SUCH a good-natured baby, smiles at everyone he sees and rarely fusses. He loves to be held and snuggled, when you pick him up he just lays his head on your shoulder and snuggles in.

Asher and Annabel are crazy about each other! I always have to get on her for trying to pick him up or laying on top of him (riding him), but secretly I think he likes it. He loves ANY attention from his big sister, and she's often the one to be able to get him laughing! It's nice, too, because when he's awake, I don't have to worry about entertaining her :) What a sweet addition he's been to our family ♥

Halloween 2010

Ugh, I've been so uninspired to blog lately. And the longer I go, the more overwhelming it gets, b/c I don't even know where to start. So tonight I"m going to start small, and show our fun Halloween pics. I had planned on Annabel going as a "princess," b/c her cousin Abby gave her a princess dress. Unfortunately... we didn't try it on until that day and it was waaaay too big- d'oh!

Soooo, we improvised and went as Fancy Nancy, haha. Pretty easy, when you consider all fancy Nancy wears is dress-up clothes! So we raided the dress-up basket, and did her hair very "fancy," with lots of curls and bows! Unfortunately... a coat doesn't look very "fancy," so we didn't last too long at the outdoor festivities, haha.

And Asher was a frog, because, well- that's what I had in the closet ;)

We went to a carnival at our church which was fun. Annabel loved the games and cotton candy!!

I know some people think Halloween is an abomination straight from the devil, but we enjoy it here ;)
