Ashton's Heir Day

Well today marks a joyous occassion. Today was Ashton's gotcha day...now affectionally referred to as Ashton's Heir Day. The day Ashton officially became a Gjerde and as Olav likes to say...an Heir to the Gjerde throne/empire. Or as I like to joke...the day Ashton officially became a tax deduction!

It was really nice, both Ashtons' birth parents were there, as well as Pop Pop and Lily.

We are so thankful to God for His amazing providence in our lives!

In other news Ashton is growing really well! At his 2 month check up last Friday, he weighed 10.5 lbs and was 22 inches long. He is really moving up in the height percentiles! He moved up to the 50% percentile. I think he is going to be tall and thin like his birth father.

I loved Ashton the day he was born, but I find myself falling more and more in love with him each day! It's so cool how he knows me now! It just melts my heart! If he is crying in someone elses arms and then I hold him, almost every time he immediately calms down. Also Ashton is beginning to smile. It is sooo cute! He also is trying to roll over...Olav said he did, but I missed it!

What a blessing it is to enjoy these stages with him!
