Asher Strait is finally a 1 year old! It's funny how when people told me, "It goes by fast!" I never really thought they meant it blows by like a 150 mph race car! I can remember every single detail about the day he was born, I can remember the first time I looked at him, I can remember his soft little cry, the way he felt in my arms, the way he smelled, how soft his skin was, the ride home, and the first night he slept all night long on my chest. I am crying now...

Well, now that I got that out! I have loved watching him grow and learn new things! I really like when he copies what Cody and I do or say...that's too funny! Asher throws everything you put in his hand it doesn't matter what it is, it's going to get chunked across the room! I praying he doesn't play baseball and that he goes to college and becomes a doctor or a layer, but something tells me he is going to have an amazing arm so I guess I'll leave it up to God. His plans is always better than mine!

Asher is not walking yet but I know it's just days away. I'm not in a hurry for him to do anything I'm just soaking up every minute of him cruising around all the furinature and crawling around everywhere!

Again, when I get the camera thing worked out I'll be posting some cute pics!


I'm so terriable at keeping this thing updated! I also feel like I start every entry with that. The truth is I just don't have time, (or make time) to sit in front of the computer and write! I need to, it makes such good memories to look back new years resoultion is to get better at it! Also, I'm having some computer problems. I really need a new lap top mine is a dinosaur, I've had it since college!

November flew by...I hate every minute of it! I want a big stop button to make it all slow down! I love Asher, I love everthing about him, even when he is fussy and I don't think I can take one more second of it, it's all worth it and I never want it to stop!

We had a good Turkey Day. Asher love all the good ole Thanksgiving Day food and even better we celebrated his 1st Birthday that weekend at the Waco Ranch!! Eating his birthday cake was the very first sweet thing he has ever tried, in his whole 1yr of living...and to my great joy he really didn't seem to be crazy about it! He licked it but after a few minutes was ready to move on to bigger and better things!! Hey, that works for me!

When I can fix my computer and figure out why I can't download my pictures anymore I will be uploading some!!! He is too cute!!

Life is flying by! My little boy is almost a 1yr old, I can't believe it! He is changing so much, growing to fast, and I wish I had a stop button! But since I don't I'm choosing to just savor every moment!October has been wonderful, we have a had great weather that we have really taken advantage of and really enjoyed being outdoors. Our church had an outing to a Pumpkin Patch and it was sooo much fun! We went on hay rides, toured a pumpkin patch, Cody picked me some amazing flowers, we ran through a scavenger hunt in a corn was a wonderful day!Asher is still moving around like crazy! Army crawling everywhere, I would put him up against any baby, that sweet thang can move!! He is starting to get his first tooth finally! One little one on the bottom, poor baby! But is otherwise doing great! He talks all the time, he can say, "Ma Ma, Da Da, and Ball!!! It's awesome, he throws everything he gets his hands on too! It's too funnY!

Home Sweet Home in Marble Falls, Texas

We are finally home and getting all settled in...what's really cool is ever since we got home it has been raining like crazy!! Most people would think that's not so great but when you have been living in a drought for 3yrs it's awesome!

Asher is adjusting well to being back at his house too! He has his own room and crib and all these new's so much fun!

Cody and I have taken on being the Youth Pastors at First Assembly Church here in Marble Falls! It has been so exciting!! We are so eager to see what God has in store for us and for the kids!!! So please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we work in their lives...

Asher Strait

I really didn't get a chance to update everyone on how our sweet little boy is doing...he is growing so fast! Way to fast for me and Cody...we were just taking the other day about how we can remember every single detail about the day he was born and the day we brought him home.

Asher just turned 9 months old on September 5th...he is now saying, Ma Ma, Da Da, a wide variety of Childreneze! He has learned to wave "Bye Bye" with his hand instead of his whole arm, claps when he is excited or claps just because it's fun, slithers around on the ground like a snake to get where he wants to go, and when he gets tired of that he just rolls several times to reach the object he had in his sites!! It's sooo funny!!

He is starting to be pretty adventures in his diet also. For whatever reason he isn't all that interested in baby food any more, it's like he just decided one day he was tired of it and stared me down with drool dribbling down his chin at the food I was eating! So, I started giving him very small samples of what I was far it's been really neat to see him "gum" things to dead before swallowing! Since he has NO teeth and doesn't show any signs of getting any time soon for now it works for him!!!

Asher is overall the best baby I could have ever asked for, Cody and I really have been so blessed. He sleeps anywhere from 10 to 11 hours, eats, goes back to sleep, and gets up around NOON!!! It's amazing...and the kid has a 2 1/2 hour nap during the day!! Sometimes...3hrs!!!
There are times where I'm not so lucky. About a week ago Asher got sick for the very FIRST time in 9months!! He didn't have a fever or anything just a clear runny nose, so I took him to the doctor and he said he had a small virus in his nose. After several days of antibiotics he was all better and back to his usual happy self!

Something else really exciting, ASHER IS PACIFIER FREE!!! I never did mind him having a pacifier until he started waking up at 5am for 4 days in a row! I took that "sucker" away COLD TURKEY and guess what, he has slept through the night EVER since!!! Now don't get me wrong, I should have taken it away at 6 months like every book I have read says. I know why now, he was miserable during the day. Nap time was the hardest for him my poor, sweet baby didn't know what hit him but it wasn't long before he figured out how to self-soothe. Life has been wonderful ever since!! When I see little boys at baseball game that can walk and are running around with a pacifier, for some reason it drives me nuts! So, we got rid of the "pacy" and we are all better for it!

Well, that's all I can think of for he grows and starts doing more I'll keep everyone posted! :)

Fun/Random Pictures of Asher

I have so many pictures on my phone and camera that I need to put on my computer so be patient with me and I'll get all the up to date ones on here soon...

Sweet September

It's hard to believe that I can remember the first game of the season like it was yesterday...the cold wind blowing on my face, the scarce amount of people in the stands crazy enough to come to a baseball game when it was so cold out, Asher pressed up against me snug as a bug in his sling, the smell of hot chocolate, the smell of the hamburger grill behind where we was awesome!!

After 139 games tomorrow will be the last one of the's such a weird feeling, happy and a little sad to be honest. Baseball games just become part of your life, it's what you do every night of the week and in the afternoon on Sunday. It's what makes every night of the week the same...Friday is Monday and Tuesday is Saturday, it dosen't matter cause you do the same thing everyday! That's a pretty cool thought...I think! But I am looking forward to having my husband home every week instead of every other nice it will be to have dinner together, go to an early movie, watch a sunset...things we don't get to do for 6 months! Now that's a really cool thought!! :)

After the game tomorrow, Cody and I and are sweet baby Asher are going to Destin, Florida! We need a vaction...we are going to relax on the beach...I can't wait!! Then we're off to thing I've learned from baseball and moving all over the country...there's no place like TEXAS!!!!

Stay tuned...

Baseball Is Crazy!!

One minute your in Springfield, Arkansas and the next day at 5:00am your driving into Montgomery, Alabama! That's the life of a baseball player!! Cody found out at the begining of a game in Springfield, Missiour that he had once again been traded to the Tampa Bay Rays!! Wow, I was shocked, excited, anxious, and hurried all the same time...see, I was visting my parents back in Texas when I found out the good news!! The problem was I had to go back to Arkansas to get my dear husband and pack all our stuff and be in Alabama in less than 2 days!!

Long story short we made it! Ironic the team Cody would be traded to was the very place I (his dear wife) was born!! Pretty cool...we are really excited to see what the Lord has in store for us with this new organization!

To the Royals....the Naturals, all you players and wife's...ya'll will be dearly missed!!! :)
