Crazy Easton

This kid wants to wants to do everything his way and loves to try everything. He started saying " I do it" or "Easton do it" this week and he means it. He wants to do everything for himself.

We have done swim lessons this summer and he cried for the 1st week but loved the other 3 weeks of them. He had a great teacher who made him work hard but he got to play a lot too. He loved it and would talk about it all day.

Easton is such a great big brother to Asher. He always wants to know where he is and what he is doing. When we go to get him out of his crib, Easton says "morning Asher, long nap" in like a sweet but high pitch voice. It is so funny.

Easton copies pretty much everything that you say and is talking more and more. He asks "what doing" about anything that he sees. If we are reading a book, he asks what each thing on the page is doing. If we are watching a movie, he asks "what buzz doing" or anything else. Curious kiddo.

He likes to test what he can get away with which can get very tiring for mommy. So I have to say extra prayers these days to keep up with him and be consistent.

He loves going to playgrounds and splash pads to play with other kids. He loves to play with older kids and especially being chased or chasing other kids.

He LOVES his dad, Ally, chocolate milk, his blanket, Toy Story, his bike, wearing goggles, playing outside and gum.

Asher: 4 months

I am behind again but oh well. My kids are growing like weeds and keep me so busy I can't even think!

Asher is getting to be such a big but happy and smiley kid. Here is what he is up to now:

  • Asher weighs 16lbs, 13oz which is 75th percentile and is 26 1/2 inches tall which is 90th percentile for height. He has a big ol' head like his brother in the 98th percentile.

  • He LOVES to be held and carried around on my hip. It looks really uncomfortable but he is in heaven and will hang out like that all day.

  • He started to roll but hasn't figured out how to continually roll. He just flips on his stomach and back to his back.

  • He prefers to sleep on his side now. He will roll over as soon as I lay him in his crib.

  • Asher sleeps through most of the night. He wakes up at about 4:30 or 5 every morning but will go back to sleep after eating until about 8. {makes for a much happier mommy}

  • He is such a smiley boy. Asher just grins from ear to ear whenever someone talks to him.

  • He LOVES Easton, his binkie, crinkly noises, mom's milk, bathtime

  • We started rice cereal but isn't a big fan yet.

We love this boy and I feel like he is growing up so fast! He is so sweet and knows exactly what he likes and wants.
