Day Five

Three days is a long time when you’re only five days old. I’ve already been harrassed for not keeping this thing more up-to-date. Let me recap the past five days for you. First and foremost — he’s still cute.

Second, the dog is finally figuring out that this one isn’t going to leave. He is usually ecstatic when children arrive to be babysat, but is equally as excited when they leave. This one’s for keeps, buddy.

He also had his first bath,

got all bundled up for his first doctor’s visit (which he passed with flying colors, by the way),

and found out how much his cousins really do love him

I know everyone loves pictures, but I really planned on writing more than making this a photo album. If you haven’t already figured out, all of Asher’s pictures are in Daddy’s Flickr album. He has his own set so if you’re ever really craving gratuitously cute baby photos, go there first. We’ll continue to post pictures here, but the format will likely change with time.

The Youngest Cards Fan

I got to go to game 4 the same day Asher was born. Thanks, honey! If you happened to see the local Fox 2 pre-game and post-game coverage and saw the sign below, I was behind it. I was disappointed I was missing the clincher with the rescheduling, but I got to watch the game on tv with my son. God is good.

Cardinals Win!

Asher’s Nursery

We’ve spent a lot of time getting his nursery ready. We chose the Safari theme early on, but it definitely took a while to get the whole concept together. We started with the blue sky and green dragged to look like safari grasses. Then I outlined the animals from the bedding set we had chosen on the walls and took the next few weeks to fill them in. We got it done just in time for Sarah’s shower so we could fill it with all of our new goodies. Now it is done and just waiting for a little boy to occupy it.
