Dear Asher: 4 Months

Dear Asher,

Happy four month birthday! This has been a fun month full of growth and change. It's amazing how you've transitioned from a newborn to a little guy. You're so much more alert and playful now. We're starting to get a glimpse at your personality, which so far is calm and easy-going. Pretty much the opposite of your sister!

This month you did a lot of experimenting with your voice. It reminds me of the bit from Austin Power where he says he is having trouble controling the volume of his voice. That's you. One second you're laughing then you are crying then back to laughing.

Two things you absolutely love: your sister and your daddy's beard. You are mesmerized by anything Zahara does and give her the biggest smiles any time she's around. She's the best sister too. She sings you songs and calms you if you're crying. It melts my heart.

Daddy has found your ticklish spot: he rubs his beard against your neck and you burst into giggles. It's adorable. You still haven't found your feet, but you're starting to grab for toys and our faces. You are getting really good at holding your head up too. You're such a strong boy!

Sadly, you ended the month with a pretty bad cold. We were in Florida for Thanksgiving and you were up all night coughing. You slept sitting up outside our balcony. We eventually took you to urgent care, but there was really nothing we could do for you. Thankfully you're feeling much better already and are back to your happy self.

We love watching you grow and play. Can't wait to see what this next month holds!

  1. Fun fact, the lyrics were changed but the song Zoey is singing is called We Love You Conrad and is from the movie/musical/book Bye Bye Birdie, which was the 5th grade play when I was in 5th grade. Bye Bye Birdie centers around a guy named Conrad Birdie who is a celebrity singer. We Love You Conrad is a song that some of Conrad's fans sing to him. Throughout the years, the song has gotten changed by various people and is now used as a lullaby or a song for children.
