Happiest of birthdays to my Asher!! We're going to celebrate in bigger style later this summer but today we've already taken our traditional pictures and gone to a birthday brunch (since Asher far prefers breakfast foods, lol). This afternoon, we'll go to a movie and pick up his cookie cake and (some of) whatever else he wants to do. Before I get sucked into all of that, though...

Here's an "official" birthday photo...

I know it's not what some might consider a traditional portrait...but I think it captures my Asher pretty spot on. ;) 

And then there are the now obligatory height comparisons...

(Apparently, I haven't taken a height comparison photo of all three boys on Asher's birthday before. If you want to see past years, check Noah's last birthday.)

Finally, here are fifteen faces of my Asher:

Yup. He's got lots of different faces, lol. This is only a small portion. For the record...I didn't ask for all of these faces. I just pulled out the camera and this is what I got. :) 

If you want to see something crazy...look at his birthday pictures from just two years ago! It's crazy how much he's grown...both physically and in every other way. He's still a relatively carefree, joyous spirit...thank goodness. He's also much more confident and able these days. He's ready to start high school and looking forward to the adventure of exploring many interests during that time...in no particular hurry to "figure out life"...just happy to experience it. Can't wait to see what the coming year will bring!

Ah, sweet Asher. I'm so glad Asher is just Asher and doesn't try to be someone else. He's his own unique, special person and you've gotta love him!
