I absolutely LOVE the things Ashton says. First he will frequently talk about his umbrella...he calls it his crumbrella. Also, yesterday we were at a "show" and their where some children doing "circus" like performances. One of the children, climbed onto a large red fitness ball and stood on top. Ashton said, "That's not such a good idea." matter of factly.
He also LOVES to be with his daddy and do anything his daddy does. The other day I pulled into the driveway and Ashton and Daddy where on the hill. Daddy with an axe in his hand splitting fireword and Ashton sitting a few feet a way with his little toy drill, drilling the firewood. It was also apparent that Ashton had moved several pieces of firewood and had begun stacking them on the driveway. Adorable. Then this week Daddy started pulling up the kitchen floor tiles to replace the old kitchen floor. Both Ashton and Lily wanted in on the action. They were like little contractors. Using Daddy's spackling and putty knifes to pull up all the old tiles. Child labor at it's finest
Ashton's art! A few week ago we were at bible study and Ashton made some art on Ms. Hope's easel. Gotta say I absolutely love it. It's a picture of me, Lily and Ashton. Guess who is the biggest? So Ashton is the left, Lily is in the middle, and mommy is on the far right!
Also Thursday Oct 16th at 10:59 Ashton's newest half-sister Paisley Landen was born. She was 5lbs 7 oz and 19 3/4 inches. She is currently in the nicu. She has had trouble breathing and eating. Hopefully she will be coming home soon.
Potty training has officially gone backwards. Ashton has been back in diapers for just over 2 weeks now. Major bummer, but I guess when he is ready he will be ready. I think we all got tired of him pooping and peeing in his pants all the time.
