First Days

So far, Asher has stolen the hearts of many here in Charleston, SC.  He flirts with our friends, enchants the neighbors and has his Godparents and Grandparents right where he wants them! 

Isabel is smitten.....and her mother-hen tendencies have kicked in big time!

And big brothers?

Are the bomb!

Especially when they play basketball with you, and give you piggy back rides.  And they boys say that we can keep him because he is at least as cute as YoYo! 

Whew.  Thank goodness for that!

For Asher's part, he has learned their English names, but continues to call them GeGe (GuhGuh for big brother) and JieJie (GiaGia for big sister). 

The English word he uses constantly? 

Hmmmm, I wonder why?
The rest of the language is not so interesting to him yet.

His first church experience wasn't so bad.  He actually sat for all of the service and was......well, not as noisy as usual for him!  I personally, was very impressed because I figured one of us was going to missing church for a while until Asher got acclimated to the situation.  We will see how next week goes.

This boy?  Is fearless!  He climbs, runs and jumps with total abandon!  His exuberance is refreshing.....and also a little scary for Mama! 

And, after his first doctor's appointment, during which 11 vials of blood were drawn for a battery of tests, Mama took him to get a little bicycle.  I know it was an indulgence.  But with all the other boy stuff we already had, it was the only thing we needed to buy.  

And Claire is so thankful not to have to share her's anymore! 
Because, that was not her favorite part of having a little brother.

I just knew you wanted to see picture proof!

Awww...he is just precious, and it looks like he's meshing into the family nicely! What a sweet little face! Isabel is in hog-heaven, I can tell. I don't know how you manage to do it, just take to you!

He is adorable! And - after 11 vials of blood - a bike seems like a perfect indulgence. Enjoy this time, with all of its highs and lows. We'll all be praying for a continued smooth transition.

There is no such thing as "cute as YoYo"-but I guess in this case I'll make an exception-that boy IS pretty darn cute!!!
Love y'all!
