The Monthly Asher: 7

 Asher Smash is seven months old today!

As part of Reed's seven month post, I posted the best laughing video ever--so decided I should try to replicate it with Smash. Here is the result (quite cute too, I must add):
His laugh makes my heart happy. (And in case you are wondering, I am suctioning a cup to my face and letting it fall off over and over.)

This bucket of eggs is Asher's favorite toy. He loves to dig through it.

Asher has discovered that he can make noise--a lot of noise. He will have entire conversations with me where we smack our lips at each other (see video above), he has started saying "babababa," he loves to vibrate his lips together, and he loves to squeal and "gee."

He loves to look at himself in the mirror.

Asher eats solids three times a day and loves them. He has lost interest in his bottle because all he wants to eat it solid food! He went from eating 8 oz. at a time to eating 4 oz. at a time.

Asher loves watching Reed's Thomas train.

Asher has three teeth, and I'm pretty sure he's working on a fourth.

 He's so pro at sitting now.

Little man is still in love with his toes. He will bend in half to get to them while he's sitting up. And he loves to chew on them while he's laying down.

New tummy mat from Grandma=good times.

Asher now wears size 6-12 months clothes. They are still a little loose, but the 3-6 stuff was way too small!

Already musically talented.

Asher sleeps from 8:00 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. He naps from 9:00-10:30, 12:30-2:00, and 4:15-5:00. He is a great sleeper!

He got Jimmered.

I think he's found something in the bag.

Asher has figured out how to get himself out of the Bumbo. He twists and folds himself until he falls out on his head. Crazy kid.

Just a little stuck in his hood.

Asher has discovered toys with buttons and he loves them. He especially likes the buttons that make loud noises or sing to him.

Using his hands and his feet to play.

Asher loves his brother. Every time Reed comes into the room, Asher gets a huge grin on his face and waves his arms excitedly.
We bought both these shirts before Reed was born because Ryan was so in love with the print we wanted to have the shirt in multiple sizes. Luckily for us, they fit both boys at the same time, too.

Asher is so curious. He gets so distracted by everything, all the time. Feeding him is a job because not even food can keep his attention!

Reed and Asher wrestling.

Asher is so good at finding and grabbing things--he has a ridiculous arm span, apparently. We will put things where "he can't reach them," turn around for a minute, and look back to see him chewing on the forbidden object. I think we're in trouble.

Grabbing a puff.

Asher gets so excited to see us when we come to get him out of his crib. It's all gees, giggles, and smiles.

Since becoming a sitting up master, Asher does not like laying down--it's all sitting for this big guy.

Mini push-up

Asher has discovered that if he kicks his legs, he scoots--but hasn't yet realized that his arms could help propel him forward. He usually ends up doing a little push-up like in the picture above and moving very slowly forward.

Reed feeding Asher puffs.

Asher loves his puffs and yogurt puffs. He is even getting somewhat proficient at picking them up and feeding himself.
His face doesn't normally look like that--it was quite bright outside, apparently.

Asher is a little allergic to grass. He gets a little rash, even if it's on a blanket--but luckily it doesn't seem to bother him. He loves to be outside.  (I know, you're thinking--why is he in the grass in the picture above, then? Call me a bad mom.)

Asher loves warm water but hates cold water--even if the cold water is awesome, like the cold water at the splash pad.
