Asher: 3 years old

Wow! My Asher is 3 years old! When did my baby turn into a little boy? I can't even put into words how much joy he has brought into our lives. He is such a special little boy! He is so much fun, and hilarious. He is the funniest little kid I know. He has the best imagination and is always coming up with the best ideas and games. We never know what he is going to say or do. Life with Asher keeps us on our toes and always keeps us laughing.

Asher's 3 year stats:
Weight: 30.2 lbs - 34th percentile
Height: 37.6 inches- 54th percentile

Asher loves to joke, and is so playful, he loves to read, he loves animals, especially horses and farm animals. He really only likes them from far away though, if we get too close he gets nervous and changes his mind. He loves pretending to be animals, it's pretty hilarious, especially when we're in public. He loves playing outside on the swing set, he could swing for hours if we let him.

He's so sweet and cuddly. He climbs into our bed every night and although we probably shouldn't encourage it, we really love it. He's also very smart. He learns things so quickly and remembers everything. He's always asking questions and wants to learn about anything he can.

We like to take the boys to do something fun for their birthdays each year with just the us so we can have a special time with them as a family. This year we went to the aquarium. Asher especially loved the otters and the penguins.

On his birthday we had a little party at the Alpine splash pad. He loves Mickey Mouse so we had a Mickey theme, which he loved. We ate hot dogs and called them "hot diggity dogs". For a couple of months after he would refer to hot dogs at hot diggity dogs. It was pretty cute. We celebrated with Grandma Aiessa, Papa Rudy, Ashley, Hunter, Brinley and Noah, Grandma and Grandpa McDonald and Uncle Aaron. He loved everything about it. He loves birthdays so much, it doesn't even have to be his. As long as there is cake he's a happy camper. 

The next day we celebrated at home with Grandma and Grandpa McDonald and Uncle Keaton and Uncle Ryan. Leslie made him an amazing Mickey Mouse clubhouse cake. It was a fun evening of dinner, cake, gifts and spending a little time outside riding the scooter he received.

We sure love our cute little three year old! I can't even imagine what life would be like without him in our family!
