Our little man is almost 1!

A quick update on everything. Asher is learning more and more every day. He recognizes words and he'll wave, pretend to talk on the phone, and all of those other cute toddlerisms although everything is dada, mama, or nahnah. Mostly dada these days. He's REALLY not liking his car seat even though it's new and big. I can't wait to turn him around, although last Tuesday at our Duke check-up, he was only 18.4 lbs. We're waiting until 20 lbs. to turn his seat around and at the rate he's burning calories, it may be a while. He's not a picky eater at all and I love that. He ate brussel sprouts this week and didn't mind them at all. I wasn't even sure if I liked them and after a quick sample, it looks like Asher will be eating them alone. Anyway, I have 2 cute new videos that I just had to share. Both of these are from today...

Asher is walking EVERYWHERE! He's gotten very confident and recently has learned the word "kick." He's not able to score goals yet but he sure does dribble! Oh, please excuse the hand towel on the floor, he pulled it down earlier. : )

This was just too funny not to share. Of course every parent loves to watch their child respond to tasting a lemon. Well, Asher has always had a slight reaction and then gone back for more. He seemed to really enjoy them. Until... tonight at dinner. It was like he'd never tried them before and it was shocking to him. Later on during our meal, he also began to make faces at his lima beans, which he'd had last night for dinner and today at lunch, so maybe he was just tired of the beans. Anyway, enjoy the expressions!
