Olympic Hopeful

Asher has been taking gymnastics since he was 16 months old. Here he is doing his favorite...the rings or bars or whatever else he can hang from! Thanks Ms. Angela for sharing pictures of our babies!

Dear Jon...

Jon-Jon that is. You know those sweet little once piece rompers that boys wear? They're also called short/longalls.
Well, I was fortunate enough today to actually catch one of the big consignment sales they have every spring here in Chattanooga. You can often get really good finds. It's a great way for me to get Asher nice clothes for daycare without spending a hefty price. We didn't find much today though except for a few one piece rombers or "jon jons". There were even some really pretty smocked ones for a great price. I quickly remembered Mark's request around 18 months that Asher stop wearing those "one piece outfit things". He thinks they look too babyish. Well, I still consider Asher a baby and miss those cute little suits. Besides, some of them are beautiful. I found one at Christmas that had a nativity scene smocked. Not even little Baby Jesus could change Mark's mind though! Too bad! I didn't buy any today either out of respect for my Manly Man husband. I know it's trivial, but it's just another reminder that my baby is growing up! Besides, what in the world is he going to wear for Easter? :)

Here are a few:

This is the last one I had made this winter at It's exactly what I had requested. It even made her website. Jerica does great work, and she does lots of different things!
