24 weeks...

Age: 24 Weeks

Size: corn on the cob

Gender:  Boy

Name:  Asher John Denton

Mom's Cravings: cabbage and coconut ice cream

Pierce's comments: "Hey mom lets get this for baby Asher", "Hey dad I think baby Asher will like this", " Hey mom baby Asher will need this"... you get the point.

Dad's Prediction:  Dad is already saying that this is the last one (meaning last child).  This is a big prediction wouldn't you say... I have always wanted 12 kids so we will have some discussing to do.

Movement:  Lots and lots of movements, especially after I eat (more if it is spicy) and if I lie on my back.  Still daddy and Pierce have yet to fill him or see him kick... there are times when my whole belly  moves.

Sweet Moment:  Not sure if this counts as a sweet moment but it sure is worthy of a comment.  At 20 weeks we went to the doctor and had Asher measured and he was already measuring a week a head of schedule.  The doctor said if he is already measuring this way then we are going to have another big boy.  He said let me just say "you know how to make babies".  I will take that as a compliment.

Sweet Moment #2:  Pierce is going to be the best big brother.  He will often pray for Baby Asher at night and always points to toys in magazines or stores that we should get for Baby Asher.  We were in the store the other day just looking around and Pierce came running to me saying that he wanted to get this for Asher... I look down and it is a swaddler blanket for boys.  And if you knew Pierce when he was born until like 16 mos he loved to be swaddled (tight) and so I thought this was so sweet bc Pierce is predicting we will have another one that wants/needs to be swaddled.  I had to have it.

Sweet Moment #3:  Pierce really wanted to help with the 24 week sign right before our photos... so his art work is at the top and he was drawing a banana (size of baby last week) and the number 24.  He is so proud to be a big brother.

Date of Arrival:  Late July 2012

These next photos were taken right at 22 weeks.  Check out that profile and those big lips (Blake says Pierce had the same lips).  We can not wait to get our hands on this little miracle.
