One Week Old

I can't believe Asher is one week old today. Steven and I took him for his first check up today. He weighed 7 lbs. 5 oz. which is just 2 oz. less than his birth weight. He didn't get any shots, thank goodness. After we left the doctor, Steven took us to eat mexican. It was soooo good. Asher slept and we were able to have a very enjoyable lunch. Then we took Asher to W*l-Mart for the first time! You know what the bible says.....Train up a child...=)
So far, he is a very easy baby. I told mom the other day, if I didn't know any better, I'd say he's putting himself on a schedule. He eats right at every 3 hours. He's nursing very well but we are supplementing with some formula.
I'm recovering. Thank goodness for my mom and dad. All I've had to do is nurse Asher and rest. My dad went home today but Mom is staying a few more days. My sister and nephew and some others are suppose to come tomorrow night. It should be a fun weekend.

Here's a slideshow of some pictures from Asher's birth.
