Up to Spring

So I haven’t been sitting down with the computer too much in the last couple of weeks because as the days get longer, our time always seems to get shorter and shorter.  We’ve been enjoying evenings in the cool Spring air, and Drew and I are delighted to be taking Asher outside.  Folks, it was a long, 66 inches of snow laden winter, and these Waltons are ready to get outside and play.  We took the camera with us the other night, here are a few shots of us reveling in the lingering, lovely light…

baby hostas, baby feet.

They may be a weed, but I look forward to the violets blooming in the yard every year.

Look who's sitting up!!

They're pretty curious about each other...

our version of Easter eggs this year.

Asher's diapers all stacked up always make me smile, the colors are so cheery!

We’re off to North Carolina this weekend for our annual Easter celebration with friends and family.  I was about a month older than Asher the first time that I went to the Easter Party, so I’m pretty excited to be bringing him home to a tradition that his children (should he so choose) will hopefully one day attend.  Am I getting ahead of myself?  Well, regardless…happy Easter!

Six months.

Asher hit the six month mark this week.  Six months!  So.  I don’t know why this feels like such a thing, but…I don’t know.  Six months just sounds like a baby, you know?  He’s half way to a year!  We’ve had this amazing little being in our lives for half a year, and part of me thinks that it feels like just yesterday, and another part of me keeps saying things like, “well, when Asher was little…”.

He’s still pretty little.

In my way, I could go on, but rather than getting all sappy about the fact that there are only 35 more 6 month periods of our life before Asher is 18 (thank Drew for that little sentimental tid bit) let’s just take a quick look at what we’ve been up to in the last month:

The Fam.

Katie and Forest stop for a quick visit during their big move to LA!

Drew and Asher continue to perfect Asher's moves on his "tap dancing stage". Some might call this my dresser, but Drew assures me that it's a stage.

Play time!

Charlotte and Mikey C came for a visit...

and a weekend of ridiculous outfits and good meals ensued.

We've started reading every night before bed. "Goodnight room. Goodnight moon. Goodnight cow jumping over the moon. Goodnight light, and the red balloon..."

Asher and his buddy Xavier have a date to discuss the finer things in life.

And really, that’s pretty much it.  The world is preparing to bloom as Spring is confidently settling in around us, the peepers are cheering on its progress from the creeks, and we are generally preparing for being awe struck by how quickly the next six months fly by.  Holy cow.
