What's in a Name

We've had people ask how we came up with Asher's name so I thought I'd post a little something here. We wanted a strong, Biblical name, and we both tend to like the more unique Old Testament names. Asher was one of the 12 tribes of Israel and it means 'Blessed', which we thought was perfect. His middle name Zhu-En means Lord's grace in Chinese. Since Chris was born in Taiwan we definitely wanted Asher to have a Chinese middle name. Chris's dad actually picked out the middle name and we thought it was perfect! When we visit Taiwan he'll actually go by Zhu-En as his first name.

Now, on to some pictures of Asher's first day:

Poor baby with his scalp iv :(

All ready to head home! I was so glad to be out of the hospital!!
