On the day you were born..

Little Asher,
As per tradition, the night before your delivery our family goes to Italian Village. We started this with Ry and we have been for each baby.  The bender is fantastic along with the meat balls.. Soooooo yummy!
Daddy and I arrived at the hospital at 5:30 and got pushed a little by an emergency and another mommy delivering. 
Right before we went back. 

We finally went into the surgical room at 8:35. You were officially born at 9:36.
-As you were being lifted out of my tummy the song "Sweet child of mine" by Guns and Roses was playing on the anesthesiologist's iPhone. You rock!!! 

The origin and meaning of your name is Hebrew, it means HAPPY or BLESSED. It is also one of the 12 tribes of Israel.  Your middle name James, is also your Papa Clawson and Uncle Marcus' middle name and your great grandpa Clawson's first name. 
You weighed 8 lbs and 5 oz.
You were a tall 21 inches long.

Here are a few funny/interesting things about the day you were born.
-A gallon of milk costs $1.99 to 2.89 
-18 eggs cost $4.34 (there is currently an issue with chickens that is killing them, drastically raising the price)
-On avarage a gallon of gas costs $2.89 
-A movie ticket is about 7.00$
-Our family loves to go out to dinner together but it costs so much to do so, we don't go very often. 
-We just got a pet bunny.(it doesn't have an official name yet)
-The weather was in the 80's, so sunny and beautiful.
-We hadn't settled on your name until you were about 6 hours old. 
-The first thing I noticed about you was how pink you were
-Ry is 10

Alex is 8

Eden is 4

MayLee is 2

-your very first visitors were Nic Dumas and Ryan Gardner.

The president of the United States is Barak Obama, the president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Thomas S. Monson. 
Daddy is the second counselor in the the Sunset Ridge Stake. He serves with President Wensel and President Zamora.
Mommy leads the music in R.S. 
You have been so healthy even though mommy had gestational diabetes. You have been able to maintain your sugars. 
You, me and daddy spent most of our first days hanging out together. You love mommy because of the groceries, but I think you and daddy have an incredible relationship. Daddy can soothe you instantly. 
I thought you would be very big, so your go home outfit was too big. The hat was pretty dorky so I snapped a quick picture and you didn't have to wear it anymore. 

You did awesome on discharge day and on the way home. 
We had to go back for labs to check your bilirubin. Unfortunately you need photo therapy.. So you've been tanning all afternoon. 

Sister Brixey brought this adorable gift.. Eden even named and added this baby Asher to her prayers.
