The Eagle has landed...

And we could not be any happier... Vivi and Grandad have touched down in Korea and we are getting all kinds of lovin.  We were all very excited to see them and show them around Ulsan before Asher arrives this coming weekend.

Here are some pics of Pierce sitting as close as possible to ViVi and GD... and smiling the whole time.

Just some pics of our little man to enjoy...

Circus on the Beach...

There is a circus in town... and we had to check it out... It ran everyday and several times a day so we grabbed some friends and went... we showed up and we were the only ones... so the pics you are about to see was all performed for 5 people ($40 USD only).  They did not seem to mind but we did feel pressure to clap constantly and make sure we were paying attention.

Before the show the kids were dancing to the beat...

This was the first act... crazy men hanging from a little car that decide to swing using huge rubber bands... 

Then the jump ropers.... while flipping...

Spinning plates... we were not convinced that these were not glued to the plates... no one dropped anything.

Juggling and Spinning umbrellas... never seen this one.

That is one place I do not want to put my head (just sayin')

These girls were so young and tiny... and not to mention limber...

We were sitting on the front row but the kids wanted to get closer to the swinging people would fly over their heads... I was a bit nervous... yikes...

And for the boys this was the highlight of the show... three motorcycles in a cage... I had seen this before but not with three and not with all the ups and downs they were doing (not just in a circle)... I think I lost a year of my life watching this... a great afternoon with friends for sure...

38 weeks!

Age: 38 Weeks

Size: Leek (? - feels a lot bigger than that)

Gender:  Boy

Name:  Asher John Denton

Mom's Cravings: Still craving ice/popsicles... anything cold and crunchy.  I will/can chomp on ice all day long and all night.  I refill the ice trays about 5 times a day (good thing our freezer is cold).

Changes:  Same as last time I report... the biggest change is the size of me and baby.  I always get mixed reports from friends... some are sweet and lie about how they say I am all belly and then others will say "wow you have gotten bigger"... got to love that honesty.  Well the above picture is TERRIBLE but I don't want to take any more pics so we are just going to have to live with it... I have refused to buy maternity clothes so I am trying to wear what I have and this dress will never be worn again until I get back to my normal size.  And I am sure that is not what I look like in real life... wink wink wink.

Pierce's comments: Pierce is already planning his birthday party in Jan. and the other day when we were planning it he said he wanted to get Asher presents on his birthday so he would not feel left out.  
Pierce really loves his brother already there are many times in the day where Pierce will say "I love _____ (fill in the blank) but not more than Jesus, you mom, dad and baby Asher"

Movement:  You can tell Asher likes his food already... after I eat he is really active.  2 weeks ago I had a doctors appt and they did a contraction/movement exam where I had to lie down for 20 min while fixed to a fetal monitor and he was not moving that much... the doctor wanted to see more movement so she gave me some orange juice and I had to take another test for an hour (all with Pierce waiting... he was excellent).  Asher performed well and this past week I have to come back to do another scan and I prayed that the first one would go well and Asher would do his job.  Well God answered our prayers... he was a mad man and even kicked off the fetal monitor the nurse kept coming over to make sure everything was ok bc there was a lot of "racket" coming from the monitor.  So yes we have another active one.

Sweet Moment #1: Pierce always wakes up before me (he is often my alarm) and he will run in bed with me and cuddle until we are ready to get up for the day.  However these past couple of weeks I have caught him several times sitting in Asher's room in the rocking chair reading a book just chilling.  I had to take a picture of the moment to remember how Blake and I are not the only ones that anxiously await Asher's arrival.. someone is so excited.

Sweet Moment #2:  My parents get here tomorrow to spend this time with us... as we get ready to welcome Asher into the world and then when he comes.  What a blessing to have them here at this time.

Date of Arrival:  Still Aug. 4th and I am really praying hard that this date is the real one although Blake and the doctor are not really sure I can make it that long bc of how big Asher is already.  The doctor will let us know next Monday.  However I would like to wait until the 4th for 2 main reasons... 1)  To make sure the lungs are developed as much as possible (the actual due date is the 11th so the longer we wait the better) and 2) The 4th is a special date... Both Pierce and Blake were born on the 4th of different months and it would be special for all my boys to have that in common.

Here are some pics of our little man (with a really big body)

This ultrasound was taken on the 23rd of July (38 weeks) and he was measuring at 39 weeks and 8.1 lbs with a EDD on 27th of July.

This ultrasound was taken on the 16th of July (37 weeks)  and he was measuring at 37/38 weeks and 7.5 lbs with an EDD on 27th of July.

Scene 7... we are done...

Scene 7... was our last and we were all happy about that... and I even got to lay down but you never know how those photos will turn out but some of them are pretty cute.  At one point the photographer let Pierce play with the bubble machine (which happen to be pink... yuck) to make him happy which it worked but wish I could work some photsoshop magic and make that pink dolphin a green army tank or something.  And just a side note when you are 34 weeks prego there are better places to lay down then a park bench (I'm just saying).
