Asher's numbers

We took Asher in to get his yearly allergy testing last week. For those of you who are interested, these are the results.

Last year's numbers:

Peanut - 16.7
Milk - 33.9
Egg - 61.3
Wheat - 18.7

This year's numbers:

Peanut - 7.49
Milk - 11.8
Egg - 34.4
Wheat - 16.5

He came down by half in almost everything. The doctor was really encouraged (as were we). We might be able to do a wheat challenge (they are willing to challenge wheat when the number falls before 20) but probably won't try it until after the new year. The rest we'll have to wait until at least next year (they don't challenge for the rest until they are under 2). That's the update.

The First Haircut

Elias had his very first haircut the other night. It was long overdue. We had been asked about our "little girl" a few times and decided that it was finally time.
He's such a ham.
In progress.
And after.
Even though I loved his hair, I much prefer this. He looks so dapper!

Hodge Podge

Here is a collection of pictures from the past month. There isn't really a central theme or anything. I just wanted to finally post this because I uploaded these pictures 5 days ago.Asher talking to Brittany from the library in the library. They were having a heart-to-heart.
Daddy took Addilyn on a Daddy-daughter date. They went bowling. Check out their adorable matching shoes.
She did really well and thoroughly enjoyed trying out the real thing after playing Wii bowling with Daddy. She even got 2 strikes in a row!
Last week was the kids' last week of gymnastics. Since it was the last week, Tyler was able to watch Addilyn's class. Yay for our biggest monkey.
Asher all dressed up and ready to go to church.
Elias was sick for 4 or 5 days a few weeks back. He had a high fever and slept a ton. Here he's all cuddled up with his monkey. Cute!
Before we packed away the Halloween costumes, we had Elias try on the turtle costume (which we loaned out to the Habluetzels this year). He wore it around for the entire morning.
Addilyn and Asher posing with their pumpkin. They were super excited when we finally carved it.
The older two eventually got Elias' sickness and were put out of commission for a few days as well. Asher even fell asleep on me! It's been at least 2 years since he did that.
More sleepy baby shots. They really were awake this month...I apparently just didn't take pictures of that.
We have 2 and a half weeks until our move and 2 more weeks of classes to get through. It should be crazy!
