Here We Are!

Life has been very busy lately. We've gone to MS 3 times over the last 6 or so. I was sick and in the E.R. one of the few weekends we've been home. I started my new job at the nursing home. I like it so far, but it's very tough work. They've been without a steady speech therapist for a while, and we're playing catch up. I'm almost working a full time job in 3 days. Plus, I still have one home health care patient in my neighborhood I'm seeing. As if that's not enough I start orientation for a PRN job. I think I'm going to have to start saying no which is so hard for me.
As for the little man...Asher is great! He still loves Elmo and asks to watch "Lala" (meaning Elmo because of the theme song) or "Boo" aka Blue's Clue's almost everyday. He understands so much, and his vocabulary is growing. "No" is officially his favorite word, but I hope it's not because that's the word he hears the most:) He loves to give Momma Eskimo kisses, and he "fixes" my hair. One of his favorite things is a "bunga" or pen or crayon or any other writing utensil. He usually has one handy with a piece of paper. Maybe that means he'll be artistic like his Daddy. That brings us to another Asher favorite...his Daddy. They wrestle and do all that rough play boys do with their Dads. He likes to mimic Mark and hammer and work on the house too.
Well, that's about it for now. I'm off tomorrow and Friday so I can get the house cleaned and decorated for Christmas. We're also waiting on word of whether Erin's sweet baby girl will be making her debut soon.
