|Asher Gene...about an hour after his birth, in SCBU|
|About an hour into his sixth birthday!|
We also caught up with Aunty Joy (Warrens sister) and Rob, and the kids loved playing at her farm with all the baby goats. And we got to see Aunty Pam (Warrens other sister), big cuzzy James and Kaden before they left and headed back to Hawera. On our way home we had a quick "Hello" to Uncle Bob (My bro), on the side of the road, as he was on his way to catch a plane to Wales...so we got to see nearly everyone!!.
I found myself thinking a great deal about how our lives have changed since becoming parents. It's amazing how having a child makes you "grow up"! We always think about ourselves a great deal before kids. We can do what we want, when we want without having to consider anyone else... quite a selfish self-centred lifestyle...man oh man having kids soon whacks that outta you! heehee.
I thought about all of the wonderful times we've had with Asher....watching him grow up, and then become an awesome, loving caring big brother to Kendyl! He often tells me he prayed for a sister and God gave him Kendyl! He is a sensitive and compassionate boy, he really does care about others, and I hope that continues throughout his life. He knows he is loved by lots of people and that he is wanted, and that we were so blessed to have him...I hope he remembers these things later in life when he faces tough times. I can't wait to see what God has in store for him/his life, and I know that if he puts God first he can't go wrong! (He knows this too!). Anyway will end this here...with a whole heap of "Asher pics" and memories...
Happy Birthday my beautiful beautiful boy! You came into our lives and continue to bless us every day with that gorgeous smile. Love you lots my darling son xxxx
