Ephram's 2nd Birthday

Hard to believe this kid turned two yesterday.  Even harder to comprehend that he was a little babe in my arms like Asher less than two years ago.  It's bittersweet to watch this little man grow so quickly, but we are so so thankful for each day we get to spend with him & I can't think of any way I'd rather spend a long holiday weekend than celebrating his life.

Some presents and a quilt handmade by momma this kiddo's big boy bed, which we are hoping to transition to soon!

When we asked Ephram what he got for his birthday, after opening all his presents & cards, his reply was, "cupcake!" This kid loves his food.

Although we are in a new town, separated from friends & family, we did have the pleasure of having Uncle Austin here for the weekend to celebrate with us.  We also happen to live in a beautiful area of the country, where picnicking on the beach seemed just the thing to do to for a small family celebration.

Little brother Asher turned 4 months today & experienced his first trip to the beach yesterday :)


Based on this picture (Ephram was also asleep & the time these were taken, I just wasn't willing to risk waking him to get his picture!) I'd say the day spend celebrating our favorite two year old's birthday was quite a success.

asher: 3 months old

Hey there sweet thang! On March 25th you turned 3 months old. Forgive Mommy for being a bit behind in posting!

Here's what you've been up to lately...

You've officially discovered your hands and in many of your waking hours can be found stuffing your fist as far into your mouth as possible. With this new discovery has come lots of drool! I think we need to put a permanent bib on you:)

Mommy has continued to enjoy good rest at night and you are too, sleeping about 10 hours straight! Nothing says "I love you" quite like that!

You're still cooing and smiling so big and sweet. You don't have a whole lot to say but when you do talk or grin, you light up the room! 

You have become really aware of Bob lately and enjoy looking at him when you are on the floor playing. He is a baby lover and keeps a close eye on you when you're playing. Ephram also likes to join you on the floor so it's really just one big Asher fan club when you're awake! 

You aren't much of a fan of tummy time. That's really the only time you've gotten upset lately...we're slowly working you up to tolerating it. Big brother likes to show you how it's done and cheer you on. 

Your favorite place to be is snuggling up in momma's arms. You are my little cuddle bug for sure! And I don't mind;) I know how quickly this baby stage goes by and I will take all the cuddles I can get! 

You've started to bat at & grasp for objects & momma is trying to work the giggles out of ya. I got a teeny one yesterday when playing with your feet but I can't wait to hear more to go with that precious smile of yours!

Love you to the moon!
