You would pretend every toy was a baby duck and show us how to hold and pet them. Oh Asher, you are such a silly boy!

You were not interested in the water as much as the sand and seashells. We went to the pool and the beach every day! We would even go back to the beach every night after dinner. That was our favorite time to relax and play in the waves. Mommy and Nana would hold sissy while you and Daddy played!

You were so shy when we sang Happy Birthday to you. Silly Mommy accidentally got you trick candles, so you had to blow them out over and over.
65: three | What a big boy you have grown into. It is so hard to believe that three whole years have passed since the day you first were placed into our arms. We have watched you grow from a fussy baby, to a busy toddler and now a stubborn, bright, sweet little boy. You make us laugh every day with your wittiness. You stretch us to the limits every day with your wildness. We love you so much and we are so proud of who you are. As we see glimpses of the young man you will be, it makes us sad to say goodbye to your baby years, but happy to see you through all the exciting and new years ahead. This year you became a big brother and we have been so amazed at how wonderful you are. You are so tender and loving with your baby sister. You want to hold her, feed her and give her kisses. We can't wait to see the two of you grow into playmates and friends. In the fall you will start a new adventure as you go off to preschool. You are so excited to go to school with your lunch box and backpack! We can't wait to see what next year has in store for you and how you will learn and grow at school. You are our little monster and our child who is always full of surprises. We can count on you to keep us on our toes. We love you to the moon, Mommy and Daddy
