Asher's First Birthday!

I can't believe that my first baby is already 1 year old!  It is incredible how much he has grown in just one year!  We decided to not have a big party and we invited Gramma Thompson over for dinner and birthday dessert and we skyped with my parents so that Asher would have a chance to see them on his special day.

It's so much fun to see him be excited about toys now.  A few weeks back we were in Costco and he walked by the big teddy bears.  Asher got so excited and wanted to cuddle with it, so I suggested that we get him one for his birthday.  It sat in the laundry room for a few weeks and every time that he would get a peak at it he would get so excited!  His reaction to his new toy was no different on his birthday, in fact, he loved everything that he got.  We made him some apple pie instead of a cake so that everyone could enjoy a yummy dessert, and it was a big hit!  I really didn't want him to have all that sugar anyway, and the thought of leftover cake made my waistline grow a bit.

As far as his growth goes he is still small, but this kid can move and he's totally capable of getting into trouble these days.

Weight: 18 lbs 4.5 oz. (below 5%)
Height:  29 1/2" (25%-50%)
Head Circumference: 18 1/4" (25%-50%)

We love Asher so much and we're so glad that he is in our family!
