Asher at 14 Months

Our little guy really isn't so little any more!! He's so full of personality and so sweet! He's on the go all day long! He literally runs the majority of the day and rarely slows down. Here's a few facts about our favorite monkey:
-He has had 2 teeth break in this week bringing his total to 4. And he has 2 more on the way, so he's finally making some progress there!
-He LOVES to eat! I think we're in a growing spell because he eats most of the day.
-He signs 'more', which he uses for food and 'I want'. He also uses it for 'help' because he hasn't completely figured out that sign yet!
-He spends a few hours every day with his monkey ears on (see pic below); which he goes and finds to put on!
-He laughs when there's a group of adults laughing. He gets a cheesy look and laughs along, as if he know exactly what's going on.
-He has finally figured out how to drink from a tippie cup! Thanks to my friend Kim suggested the Nuk tippie.
-He still doesn't sleep through the night, but we're getting close! He only gets up once in the night now, which is progress!
-He says mom, Dad, dog (which he uses for any animal), and blankie

Dragon Boat Race Festival

Have I mentioned we love living in Colorado?? There's always something great to do here! This past Saturday was the Dragon Boat Race Festival. It was a hot hot day!! But, we still had a great day and enjoyed some delicious Asian food too!

This was Asher at the end....passed out!! Unfortunately he then awakened on the shuttle bus and screamed the entire ride....oops! Luckily, everyone was really nice about it and he was in an amazing mood when we got home!

Denver Aquarium

Chris got off work early this past Friday so we made an impromptu trip to the Denver Aquarium. I had been there about 4 years ago, but this was Chris and Asher's first trip!

 They have mermaids now!! Which I found to be awesome and not creepy at all!!

 He really loved the big fish tanks. When one big fist swam by he pointed and said "Do!" which is dog...and apparently any animal about his size.

Asher even got to pet his first sting ray! It kind of scared him, but at least we got one to come over to him!

We had a great little afternoon outing! It's a great aquarium and fun because it isn't a trip that takes all day!

We have to train him young to smile on command. And judging by tonight, all our hard work is paying off!!
