I could never say thank you enough for ALL that you did for us while you were here!!!
Thank you for...
- Keeping our laundry done
- Keeping our dishes washed
- Keeping our trash emptied
- Straightening our bed every day
- Grocery shopping for us
- Cooking for us
- Playing with Asher
- Enduring Beau's affinity for sci-fi
- Starting my bath water multiple times a day =)
- Organizing our stuff
- Changing diapers - Newborn ones and Size 4 ones =)
- Sacrificing time with Dad and time away from your job
I'm sure I'm leaving very significant things out. But all those things in that list made a HUGE difference for me!!! You kept things the way I like them - the way I would have them if my body would allow me. And that just makes life more peaceful...So THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! We could not have made it through our first week and a half with two kids without you!!! We're doing well today, but I miss you already. =)
I love you!

My Dearest Asher,
I love you with all of my heart. There is not a place inside of me that does not LOVE you with indescribable feeling! You are my baby...my first baby...and you always will be! Daddy and I have LOVED having you as our only little boy for almost two years now. You're SO SPECIAL! You're so fun, so smart, so loving and cuddly. Tonight as I was holding you - for one of the last times before your little sister comes out into our lives - I was overwhelmed with emotion for you. I could not have ever imagined the kind of deep love that I have for you. God has given us SUCH a gift in you...and we wouldn't trade you for the WORLD!!! You are mine and Daddy's PRECIOUS, PRECIOUS boy!!! And that will never change! I wish I could bottle up the time that we've had together with you so far. I will cherish it FOREVER. It's been so special!!!
But it's time for a little change. You're going to be a big brother. And I know it will be great! Different, but even richer, I'm sure. I just can't imagine it yet. =) But soon...in a handful of hours, we will get to see your first reaction to your baby sister. And I think you're going to like her. I'm looking forward to holding you both at the same time...because you're my babies.
I love you with ALL of my heart Asher!

I had a doctor's appointment today, and I had to wait for a LONG time to be seen. And then I was seen by two different people who were NOT my doctor. They were way backed up because of the holiday yesterday and two c-sections this morning. But I did see him for a couple of minutes at the end of my appointment. Long enough for him to basically say, "Everything looks good. Any questions?" "YEAH, when am I going to have her???" is what I wanted to say. =) But he doesn't know - of course. And we just have to wait...like any normal pregnant person. I really don't like not being able to have everything planned out. =) By the time that ordeal was over, I was TIRED, HUNGRY, and FRUSTRATED - which was NOT a good combination. So Beau met me at Chili's, and we had lunch - which included a Dr. Pepper and dessert. I thought I deserved it. I've been "good" for long enough! =)
Then this evening Asher and I went to Dina's for dinner - and it was DELICIOUS! But Asher was a bit (more than a bit) of a terror! I hate saying that about any kid, but it was true tonight! I don't know why, but he was getting into EVERYTHING that he wasn't supposed to, and I could NOT get him to obey me! I'm currently at a loss about that! How do you get an almost two year old to obey you when you're already trying all the things that you're "supposed" to do??? Needless to say, it was good to get him into bed tonight. =)
And here I am...venting. And now I feel a little better - and almost ready to go to sleep - which is probably what I need the most! =) So good night. Here's to tomorrow being three weeks until Ainsley's due!!!
