to daddy with love

Dear Daddy,

Asher here. How's Utah? Home is the same. Mom hasn't even cleaned the house yet. I have been monopolizing her time. And she's been choosing sleep over cleaning during my naps. Can't say that I blame her since last night I decided I didn't want to go back to sleep at 4 in the morning. She had to use the swaddle, pacificer, sing a lot of songs trick to zonk me out again. She was really wishing you were here.

I wish you were here too. I miss sitting on your lap while you work on the computer. Mama is great and all but I always get distracted by the prospect of food when I'm with her. Although I did show her some of my best smiles today, but I didn't let her get a picture. I like to remain mysterious that way. I did pose pretty nicely for the photo up there with you the other day. I like showing off how strong I am and that I can hold my head up all by myself. I'm getting pretty good at that.

I went to church with Mommy today. I slept through all of Sacrament Meeting. Then I woke up so she could feed me during Sunday School, but I was a very good boy and didn't cry while she talked to some friends first. I don't think Mom minded missing Sunday School. Then I slept through Relief Society too. Mom is really cozy to sleep on. And no one else even tried holding me, so I was happy.

Tomorrow we are going to go pick up a swing for me. I'm not sure if I like that idea or not. We'll have to see.

Well, I better go now. I need to get my sleep. I can't wait to see you on Wednesday!




  1. To Asher (and his scribe),

    This little note touched me so much! Your Mom was struck by quite the touch of whimsy. I miss you too and am so excited to see you in a few days! I will really appreciate having the time with just you and Mommy.

  2. I have to admit that "speaking" for my baby is one of my favorite things to do. It just cracks me up. This note is funny and sweet.
