Journey to Parenthood

I want to be purposeful about journaling during this time in our lives as we watch our miracle micro preemie, Asher, continue to grow and thrive. I began this blog during my month of bed rest at the hospital while I was pregnant with Asher and his brother Titus. We continue to hope and trust the Lord for Asher's future. This blog begins with the story of how both of our boys came to be. They came about after many tears, many prayers, and many months of crushed hopes. On February 2, 2012, our boys Titus Bauer and Asher Mark were born at just 23 weeks and 2 days gestation. My water around Titus broke at 19 weeks, so his lungs were very underdeveloped. Titus lived 45 minutes and is now living a perfect life in heaven as he watches over his little brother Asher. Two and a half years later God redeemed our story of hurt with a precious full term baby brother for Asher. We are humbled by how the Lord has loved on us in our journey through parenthood.

Asher's First Big Boy Bath

Asher had his first big boy bath today! Up until this point..he's just had a "wiping" type bath. So, this was a big day for us! We were so thankful to get to help with this! He did NOT like his bath, but after he got dried off, and had warm lotion rubbed on him, got his paci and mom's finger..he felt much better. After that, he fell asleep on me and was out! Poor guy! He also had a visit from one of his favorite cousins, Rylie.
