Asa's Quilt.

My mom had been hand quilting for a while now. She started making us graduation present quilts, then wedding quilts, and now we get baby quilts. We love them so much! She calls these her 'heirloom' quilts since she hand quilts them and they take such a long time and lots of hours to make. Plus we will have them forever. 

She now machine quilts as well, but we cherish all the hours and prayers over this  quilt and over our sweet boy while quilting his quilt!! 

Here is Asa's quilt! 

You can see she quilted arrows and deer prints in the borders. Perfect for our little 'bear'! (We call him Asa Bear a lot since his middle name is Barret. Plus he growls and grunts a lot too!)

We've used it to play on a couple times!! I'm sure we get tons of use out of it! 

Thank you mom!! 

As a side note, I would link to her blog where she posts all her quilts, but don't know how to from my phone. Sorry!

One Month.

Time is flying by here. I cannot believe my baby is a month old!! My life has completely changed this past month. I feel like I'm on an extended vacation. I'm totally enjoying being a stay at home mom, soaking up every second of time with this kid. 

This month we took our new born photos. This is just a sneak peek. I will post the pics once I get them back. This was just a quick shot I took during our session. 

And we got published! My dad's good friend writes an article in the Livestock Weekly. He mentioned our sweet bundle in the June 5 issue. 

We are super alert and love looking around at everything!! 

We celebrated Dad's first Father's day! 

Got dressed up a few times! 

And slept a bit!

Now we're a month old!! Such a Big boy!!

12 pounds, 1 ounce and 23 inches long!! Growing like a weed!! 

Here's to many more happy months!!

Brand New!!

I know I'm late on this, but I will try and keep my blog updated! 

My mom came and stayed 4 or 5 days when Asa was first born. It was so nice to have her here to take care of us. And it was nice to not have to cook for a few days. Plus to have someone here for advice when I wasn't sure what to do! 

Oh new motherhood!!

Since she left I've had a couple of moments that I've called her crying not knowing what to do, but now I think I'm learning him a little bit better!! 

Here's a few pics of the past couple of weeks! 

This is how daddy left us in our crib. Covered by our burp cloth!! Silly daddy!  

The days fly by!! Two months old today!

Log pillow.

I pinned a picture of a log pillow a while back thinking, "That's so cute. I could do that!" So now I have made that a reality!! Finally took the time to make it. 
Plus Asa likes to sleep on his side some. This way I have something to prop him up with other then a rolled up blanket!! Much cuter!! 

I'm very pleased with how it turned out!! 

And this is what my little man was doing while I was sewing!

Conked out!! He pulls his feet up under him as well!! So adorable! 
I think he looks so big and long in this picture. 

Happy 2 weeks!!
