Growth

Last year Asher was new to us. He spent the last couple of months of school in a kindergarten classroom. He was SO TINY!!! This year he went back kindergarten with the same teacher and additional supports in place.

Last year for Mother's Day the kids gave us moms a picture. Since this is Asher's second time around, I was privileged enough to get a second picture too!

Look at the difference from 2012 to 2013! 
Last year it was still really hard for Asher to give us eye contact. 
He didn't understand English yet either, so taking pictures was always
a bit confusing for him. But this year? He's got it down!

I love his proud grin this year! What a big boy. I love how he and Abel are helping each other develop -- that looks like a really good match for them!
