It's hard to imagine Asa is already 11 months old! He's so busy these days crawling and cruising around the house. He's getting used to crawling outside, but tends to bear crawl in order to avoid the grass! :) It's not easy to capture a picture of this moving little guy. So, I got an early birthday present from Eric-a new camera. :) It's been so helpful to keep up with our busy little boy! He says "Mommy", "Daddy", Dog, No is Ninnna, and he signs when he is finished eating. It's amazing how much he understands now..... He's still very happy, but is exerting his will more now. For instance, our big battle these days is keeping him out of the dog food, entertainment center and the fireplace screen. I can hardly believe where time has gone. He now has two teeth, and is working on his upper teeth this week. Asa is a great eater!! He comes by this naturally. :) He'll eat almost anything- loves blueberries, strawberries, grilled chicken, peaches, peas, cheese, and especially, WATERMELON. He can't get enough of watermelon! :) Eric and I feel amazed everyday how much he is learning, and how much we love him more and more everyday!

Over Memorial Day, we went to the cabin to spend time together. It was so fun to see Asa take in all the sights and sounds of the woods and Illinois River. He's so observant now! He cruises around and crawls as fast as you can imagine. :) Grandma and Grandpa enjoyed getting to show Asa the Illinois River!

We had a great time visiting family in Florida and Georgia. We were able to see Eric's aunts and uncles, cousins and second cousins. It was fun!! Asa was a great little traveler, and we had a great time at the beach too! Asa and I went with Mame', Aunt Miriam, Cousin Maggie and Cousin William. Wish Eric could have come! Maybe next time! :)
