It seems like this month has just flown by!! Last week we found out that Chris' grandma passed away so we made an unexpected trip to Missouri for the funeral. Of course, it wasn't the best circumstances, but it was great to see family. We even got to spend some time with some of the cousins that we don't usually see. Plus, our families were pretty excited to see Asher before he turns one! Here's a few pics from our trip.
Elijah was pretty excited to help Asher with his juice bottle.
Asher discovered watermelon and is in love....and desperate need of a bath!
Practicing his walking! He has taken up to 6 steps on his own, but isn't quite confident to walk by himself just yet!
And of course, Asher had to get a quick trim from Aunt Nicole!
Asher and I will be back in Missouri in just a few weeks for Camp and his big 1 year celebration!!

-He jabbers constantly and can say da-da pretty regularly when Chris comes home from work
-He isn't sleeping through the night, but he is in his own room now!
-He really loves eating! Some of his favorites are lentils, quinoa, and pears
-He's not walking yet, but getting close and can run while cruising around the couch
-He is much more social now and even lets other people hold him now!
-We just started giving him a tippie of water or breastmilk this week. He's not real sure what to think of it, but likes playing with it.

It has finally happened....Asher is sleeping in his crib and has been for about a week. I actually even took down the pack n play. If you don't know me....this is huge. He still wakes up and needs middle of the night feedings, but at least we're one step closer! I do realize he's 10 and a half months, but it always seemed easier to have him close for night feedings. However, he has been waking up at 630 and will gladly play for a while. But when he was in our room he would scream in the direction of our bed until we got up. And Heaven forbid I went to the bathroom before I get him!!! So now, I can listen to him playing and allow myself a little time before actually starting our day.
