Love'in Life!

Tonight Asher had a big pizza dinner. Ground up pizza, that is. When we were done he rubbed his tummy like he was stuffed, then walked over to the couch. Apparently he saw a spot that looked just perfect for a little boy with a full tummy. Our couch is squishy (and not always in a good way!) and it was a lot of work for him to get up there. It was odd for him, because he didn't have a dangler in his hand,  but it didn't take long to see why he claimed the spot as his.


Then we realized what we were REALLY seeing! This is the first time we've ever seen him...just...sit...without something in his hands, without being reminded to put his tongue in. Just like any other 7 year old boy.

Seriously, that kid is wicked cute. And when you add in glasses and anytime he as stripes....the cuteness is pretty much illegal.

As I looked at your post I decided my comment was going to be "He is the cutest thing ever". Emianulli and I think alike! lol and he really is!

What's with the hands behind the head?? Nathan does this too. He didn't do it when he first came home...but in the past couple of months. I'm sure this suggest he is now "comfortable" in his new surroundings. But, none of the other kids have ever positined themselves like this. Now he goes to sleep this way also. We have many pictures of Nathan in this pose on the couch just like your photos. I find it intriguing how similar this pose is!
