The Monthly Asher: 2

First, a few stats:
Weight: 10 lbs. 13 oz. (31st percentile)
Length: 22 in. (19th percentile) Did anyone ever expect him to be tall anyway?
Head: 16 in. (69th percentile)

At Reed's two month appointment, the news wasn't so good, so I was a little nervous for this doctor's appointment. But Dr. Nielson said Asher's growth looks great--right on track. I'm not going to lie, it was a relief to hear that. Way to go, Smash.

Spending some quality time with Daddy.

Asher is a happy baby, generally. Most times after he eats, he spends about half an hour smiling at anyone or anything that happens to be in his line of sight. Then he fusses a little and likes to be rocked to sleep.

Reading with big brother.

He's not always good, though. He has a grumpy time each night starting at about 9 p.m. And sometimes during the day he fights sleep so hard and just cries instead. Crazy boy.

He has already had two colds. Nice parenting, right? When he has a cold, he doesn't sleep unless you hold him. Understandable, I think.

Just pumped.

Asher, for whatever reason, seems to like tummy time. He even smiles. When he's done being on his stomach, he fusses for a few minutes until you roll him over.

Asher can track objects with his eyes (yep, we are very impressed with him :), smiles in response to most things (but especially at Daddy making kissing noises), and can hold on to toys if we put them in his hand (hehe).

More Daddy time.

We love our Smash!
