Hey, who light?

I know that my last post was about Asher but his language is (finally) developing and changing so much, that I want to write down the things he is saying before I forget.
You have to be fluent in Asherian to understand some of what he says, so I'll translate for you!

ice shream- Ice cream

hibby doo- Scooby Doo

I on seep in bubba bed- I want to sleep in bubba's bed.

choky mook- chocolate milk

Big bubba/Dou-EE- Dougie

Lil bubba/Cayub- Caleb

Da-EE- Daddy

top art- pop tart

mamawpap (all one word) -Grandma & Paps

One of the funniest things he started doing is closing his eyes really tight and the yelling,
"hey, who light?"

I'm sure there's many more that I'll think of later.

Love y'all dearly!

Help da baby!

I shared this story with some family this weekend and realized that I hadn't blogged about it. And since it's something I definitely want to be able to tell Asher about, I better write it down!

Thanks to the picture info on my phone, I know that this took place on April 26th, 10 days after Asher's 2nd birthday. At this time, Asher wouldn't say his name but would refer to himself as baby.
So Asher had started a new game. He would throw his baseballs or any other kind of ball above the sofa and loved when they fell between the couch and the wall. There is enough space that he could crawl back there and retrieve his balls, just to do it all over again.
On this day, I was in the other room and I heard him crying. I came into the family room and I didn't see him but I heard him crying. When I called his name, he cried out, "I stuck!" When I realized he was behind the couch, I bent down and this is what I saw-

When I asked him if he was stuck, through his cries he said,
"Help da baby!"

And yes, I took the time to grab my phone and snap a picture. Just think, if I hadn't, I wouldn't know when this happened!

Love y'all dearly!

Stop growing....

Last night we had a first in our house.

Caleb and Dougie had made a plan that they were going to sleep together in Dougie's room. When it came time to go to bed, Asher was not too happy that his big & lil bubba were going to be together and he was by himself! So when I took Asher into his room, kicking & crying, I asked him if he wanted to sleep in lil bubba's (Caleb) bed. He immediately stopped crying and said, "eesss." So we put him in Caleb's bed and he slept there all night and didn't get up once! I snuck in this morning and snapped a picture using Steven's cell.

So I guess we'll be taking down the baby bed soon and moving one of Dougie's bunkbeds upstairs. ***sigh*** My baby's growing up!

Love y'all!

What day is it?

Well, Summer is in full swing and we have been enjoying every minute. We were joking tonight because we were all confused on what day it was! Other than Sunday, our days are all pretty much the same.

Eat breakfast
Play outside before it gets too hot.
Come inside because it's too hot.
Watch D*sney, N*ckelodeon or Sp*rts Center (if Dougie has the remote)
Eat lunch
Take naps (usually just the little boys, but sometimes Momma too!)
Play board games
Play on the computer
Eat supper
repeat any of the above activities!
Go to bed waaaay tooo late!

We sure do miss not having access to a pool. But some friends in our church have offered theirs, so the kids and I are going tomorrow to swim! Yay!

Tomorrow night we are taking the kids to an Augusta Greenjackets game. They are running a special this week, buy 1 ticket get 1 free! I think I enjoy going to the minor league games more than the big leagues.

Later this week, we're going to ATL for a few days. Of course, we're all looking forward to that!

I guess that's about it for now. I'll leave you with this picture. we actually did something productive today and cleaned out the van and washed it! Asher even helped out and yes, he's in his pajamas. It IS summer, y'all!

Love y'all! Go eat some ice cream!

Shannon Bailey Fitzgerald

March 7, 1972 - May 30, 2011

This is Shannon, wife of my cousin, Chris and mom to Mackenzie and Elliot. On Monday, May 30, 2011, Shannon unexpectantly went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Please pray for Chris, Mackenzie and Elliot, not only tomorrow, as they bury their precious wife and mother but in the days, weeks and months to come.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18

Love y'all dearly and thanks for praying.
