I can’t believe it’s already August!! I apologize (once again!) for the recent post shortage. I know I always talk about how busy we are, but it’s the truth…and July was an exceptionally busy month. The second week of the month was VBS, the week after that was packing for camping, and last week was family camping (Breimer side) at the Pinery. This week has been unpacking from camping (I am SO sick of doing laundry! The Pinery was VERY dirty!) and re-packing for my trip with the kids to Dorcas camp (basically, a scrapbooking/sewing/crafts/Bible study getaway for women) next week. See what I mean? Busy. But that is a blessing. Our lives are full, and for that, we thank the Lord!
He still adores his big brother Judah. Judah can simply look in his direction, and Asher will beam or start giggling. It’s amazing! And Judah is so amazing with him. He can make Asher laugh like no-one else can! It’s great for all of us, because Asher gets entertained, Judah loves the attention, and Rob and I have a stand-in babysitter for those moments when we can’t get to Asher right away. If their current relationship is any predictor, I think my boys will be very close. I really hope they stay that way.
Judah is growing up so much; I can hardly believe it! He loves to have conversations with us about anything and everything. He is SO curious! He asks many questions; his favourite at the moment is “what does a ____ say?”, which he asks not just about animals and vehicles, but about random things like chips or trees. “Um…crunch?” We’re waiting apprehensively for the inevitable “why” stage. He is growing physically, too. He grown quite tall in the past couple of months. “EEE small, mommy!” is what he tells me about the clothes he is outgrowing.
I am working on pictures for this post, but it takes so darn long, and I can’t finish right now (and, since I’m a perfectionist, I won’t post the pictures and their stories until they are complete…). I’ll leave you with a quick family picture for tonight, but will update this post with pictures (and the stories that go along with them) in the next day or two.
