Asher looked so pink and plump this afternoon that I put aside my long (um, endless) To Do List and took a few “naked baby” pictures of him instead. Little Asher was very cheery during our photo shoot, but he would not take his chubby hands out of his mouth! At first I thought the pictures weren’t what I’d hoped for, what with a slobbery hand in every shot, but then I realized that these picture capture a really sweet time in this baby’s life, one that will probably be quite brief in the grand scheme of things. I am sure that someday soon I’ll look back on these pictures and get all wistful and nostalgic and teary-eyed as I remember my darling son in his hand-chewing days. Rick has affectionately bestowed the nickname “Chomper” upon our little guy, for very obvious reasons. His hands, wonderfully chubby and plump, rarely leave his little mouth.
“Look, Mom! No hands!”
I love Asher’s rolly-polly little arm in this next picture. Just look at all those darling creases!
Next I tried to get a picture of Asher’s cute, fat feet (might as well capture all appendages, right?) Asher kicked his little legs and I ended up with this picture instead, which I thought was quite cute.
And then I zoomed in on his precious face…
And, finally, I snapped a close up of the sweet, chubby, perfect little hand that Asher so adores.
