Asher 7 months...Finally a new post

Hello dear family and friends!  I apologize that it has taken me so long to post anything new on our blog.  I have been using facebook more these days to post photos and daily comments about what is happening in our lives.  If you aren't friends with us on facebook, please send us an invitation!  We would love to know what is going on in your lives as well!
We are doing well these days, praise the Lord!  Siena got a little cold the first week of school and passed it to everyone in the family, but that's it!  The flu is going around here, but thus far we have escaped it.  We are praying that we can keep healthy for our trip to the States in one week.  We are getting really excited to see our precious family.  This will be the first time for most of our family to meet Asher, and it will be our first time to meet Frankie, Nikki's sister's new baby, and Nathan, Anthony's brother's new baby!  We can't wait to celebrate the gift of life that God has blessed us with this year.  What a wonderful year!  Three new babies were given to our family!  (I think I like exclamation points....:)
I just wanted to give you a few new photos of our little guy that will make you laugh.  He is quite the character.  He does what we call the "Ashberry".  These are raspberries that he does so enthusiastically that his entire face ends up wet with spit.  He also loves to talk and to laugh at Siena and Sammy.  He is loved by everyone and there still is not a hint of jealousy, praise the Lord!
Lots of Love,

Asher 6 weeks

Here's our boy!  We hope that you enjoy these wonderful photos from an amateur photographer (that's me, Nikki).  Sorry about the delay.  He's our third!  It is true what they say.
Asher is such a delight.  He has already let us sleep through the night 5 times (not all in a row, but we'll take it!!!).  He is starting to smile now and is just so peaceful.  We praise the Lord for His goodness.  Siena and Sammy LOVE their new brother too!  We have yet to see any hints of jealousy.  This is another amazing praise.
We are curious as to whom you think Asher looks like.  Does he look like mom or dad, grandma or grandpa?  I think that he has the Italian coloring, but he looks just like his Papa Paul.  But, the jury is still out.  
We love you all and can't wait to introduce this little treasure to you someday soon!

This is the Asher LOOK! (Above)

Now that's the VanDruff nose, isn't it?

OK, enough already, Mom!!!
