So, I realized that the reason I am not so great at blogging is because it's all or none- I spend hours looking at blogs and updating my own, or I don't look at anyone's blogs and don't update mine- the lesson; balance :) Isn't that the quest of life though- to have perfect balance?! Anyone who has got it down let me know how you do it!

Asher and I love hanging out all day, he is such a happy kid and makes sure we know what he wants. For example, I go to wipe his nose and he shakes his head back and forth so fast, while screaming, that all I end up doing is spreading snot across his face! It's like I have to wrestle him down to change his diapers, too. I can't complain though, he keeps life fun and interesting!

The top picture I took today after he had been in the laundry room staring at the dryer for more than 5 minutes- that's a really long time for a 13 month old -he was totally enthralled!
He is close to walking, but still prefers holding our finger as he goes. He now weighs 24 lbs and is 30 and 1/4 inches tall, he is getting so big and our life has so much purpose as his parents!

Omigoodness that baby is soooo cute! YAY! I love when you update your blog, it is so exciting- I know what you mean, about getting all absorbed in looking at blogs- I work all day at a friggin computer and can come home and absorb tons of time blog-perusing! Sometimes it is fun, but then Trixie reminds me it is time to go play fetch :)

Dang it Asher is cute! I love that second picture--his grin melts my heart every time. I'm glad he keeps your life interesting, and I hardly know how I'll do it! I still don't know how parents have kids at Church and hear or learn anything. You're a mastermind.:)

Asher is so cute! Isn't it fun to be a Mom?! And about blogging-I have trouble balancing it, too. I just tell myself if I only check one or two a day then it doesn't take long to keep in touch! :)

Hey Laura! How have you been? Do you still live in the good old Highlander? I have really been missing all our friends from Salt Lake lately so I just googled you and found your blog. I'm glad we can keep in touch now! Come check out our blog and let me know what you are up to these day!

So I have a case of all-or-nothing-itis as well!!!! Today was an 'all' day. I posted a bunch, changed my whole background and blog header, and have checked almost everyone's blogs on my list. I literally have spent like all day blogging. But anyway, it gave me a chance to check up on you! Wow asher is getting so big! He's changed so much! I would really love to see you. Can you go to lunch this week or next? Miss you...
