30 weeks

He tried bananas and loved them.  I know you're not supposed to give them fruit first but I had a feeling he would like them and I wanted to make sure there was nothing wrong with his swallowing reflex since he was reacting so negatively to purees (gagging and all). 

He really, REALLY loves my Pandora bracelet.  He always grabs for it--especially when I'm changing his diaper. 

We took a family walk in the snow on our first snow day together.  I think Asher was just confused by the wind and the cold.  He buried his head in Daddy's chest. 

Feeling for those teeth.  We're sure the're coming in. 
This was also on our wonderful snow day together--Baby Bear was enthralled by watching Daddy and his sister box on the Wii. 

This is fun, Mommy!!! Wait, can you take me out now?

Back in the race car at Food Lion!

He loves his Daddy. 
He was supposed to be napping.  It was naptime.  But he woke up early so he just joined us while we "napped" which meant that we didn't really get to nap but he was worth it. 

TWO, beautiful teeth! He hasn't gotten any since, though.  We keep thinking they're coming and they don't. 

He likes mashed potatoes!
But not when his sister tries to feed him. 

We were sure he was teething so we put the amber necklace on him and gave him lots of things to sink his gums into.

He LOVES blankets over his face.  This super, sheer scarf was a safe way to give him what he wanted.
One day he won't let me dress him how I want so I'm taking advantage of the fact he has no say in the matter.

I think this was from the morning I woke him up because I screamed about the stink bug hanging out in my toothpaste.  Poor Daddy had to put him back to sleep while I got ready for work.  I came back after awhile and found this. 
Nursing while his sister does my hair.

He made this tiny handprint on my mirror after I lubed him up with coconut oil and we played the "look at the baby" game in the mirror.  I haven't had the heart to wash it off.  I think it will stay there forever.

Chillin' with his Grandpa after his Grandma Bridgette's party (that we missed).

Matching Daddy.

I ended up in the nursery this day and I knew it would be best if he didn't nap but I couldn't hold him off.

While his sister previewed my school for kindergarten, he chewed happily on my otter box case.

He nicked me with is teeth one morning and I didn't realize it so when I went to pump, I got bloody, pink milk.  He only bit me once--like truly bit me--but he doesn't seem to be aware of the two bottom teeth so sometimes I get grazed by them.

He truly loves the guitar.  Playing with it always leads to eating it, though, so I rarely let him do it.

29 Weeks old


He likes holding things over his head with two hands.

My two, amazing boys!

No real reason for this picture.  This is just how he looks when we take him out in the cold. And sometimes (Most of the time) he wears his little bear suit and he's just so snuggly and adorable that way!

He's still just 18lbs 13 oz.  I took him to the doctor because we thought he had pink eye but it was just a clogged tear duct.  It cleared up with lots of breastmilk over the course of the day.

He has a little pterodactyl scream that is reserved for when he's fussy or unhappy.  Sometimes he does it when he's happy but usually right before he's about to be unhappy.

He really, REALLY likes eating paper--well, mostly it's anything that makes a great, crinkly noise. 

This is his buddy at his sister's dance class.  She holds him every week for about the first half hour of class. 
I decided to make a treat for the two of them and made the playpen a ballpit.  I think he would have enjoyed it more if he were more mobile but once he fell over on his belly or back he was overwhelmed with all the balls underneath him.  I removed about 90% of the balls after that. 

He may have a yeast rash under his diaper.  I'm treating it with breast milk, coconut oil, and coverless diapers.  I'm probably going to have to sun the diapers now to disinfect them.
LOVES that waterbottle...

His sister learned that maybe making him into a fairy wasn't the best idea. 

I don't often get to see him eat from a bottle so when I do it's kinda cool.  A couple times I've caught the tail end of a bottle feeding at daycare and once I ran home between classes to grab something and saw him eating from his Daddy, but honestly I forget that he knows how to bottle feed since I never bottle feed him. 

Some fun playtime on the bed.

I don't think I like carrots, Mommy...

I'm pretty sure he's gonna be a guitarist.

If I can grab it, I shall EAT IT!!!

Facetime with Mommy.  I think he was confused because he heard my voice but he didn't equate it with the picture he saw on Daddy's phone.  :-D
