I am not very good at this....

Blogging seems to be the last thing I think of doing lately. This summer has just flown by and we have seemed to be doing something crazy every weekend lately. Now that the summer is over and school has started maybe I will have a bit more time to write things down, lets hope anyway.

So last weekend we went to Idaho Falls to visit Cody's Dad, Step mom and a bunch of his friends from High School. We had a blast it is always fun to go back and see everyone. I am not sure Idaho Falls is anywhere I would want to live but it sure is nice to visit. Noble thought Grandpa's house was paradise! He has a HUGE green yard that backs up to the river, a dog that Noble seemed to adore, Grandpa bought him a Dora The Explorer movie and let him fall asleep watching it which we never let him do and he woke up to chocolate milk every morning. Needless to say Noble has a good time visiting Grandpa's house.
The hard thing is the repercussions for Noble having such a great time. He has turned into an absolute monster this week. At daycare he seems to think every toy is his he is starting to bite other kids and scream MINE at them if they come anywhere near something he decides he wants. Of course we are not letting him get away with it we have been trying the time out method currently and it seems to work at the time it keeps him okay for a while. I am really hoping it is all just a phase and he will be back to my sweet boy soon!
Anyway speaking of my adorable monster he is currently calling so I will have to add more of our summer adventures at another time.

Camping Trip

So every year my family gets together for a big camping trip and this year was no different. We went to the North Fork of the Boise River with 3o something friends and family. This year I was a little worried about Noble since he has just started walking I thought he would either get hurt or not be able to leave my side because he was scared. He surprised me and did a great job he walked everywhere even through the rocks and sticks. He was super independent and he had a great time poking things with sticks and chasing the dogs. He even did a great job sleeping in the tent although he would have much rather been out playing with the big kids then taking naps he was tired enough that he could not fight it. Cody had a good time playing in the water, riding the 4 wheeler, and helping with the great dinners. I had a great time visiting with family and watching the boys adventure around camp. All in all we had a great time and I can not wait until next year and it has made me very excited for our big camping trip with our friends this August.

Happy 4th of July!!

We had a great night last night. We did not have plans until Matt, Ammo, Jrad, and Tom invited us over for a BB. It was a blast they set up a big tv outside and we watched movies, ate and set off fireworks. I was really proud of Noble he was in a really good mood dancing for everyone and being goofy he even stayed up until 10 without throwing one fit! We are so lucky to have such great friends. We were the only ones there with a kid and they were all so happy to have Noble there. Thanks guys for a great night! We had a blast and we can't wait for plenty more BBQs this summer!

I am horrible at this blog thing...

So everyone has asked me to update so I thought I would try to try to catch it up to date a little. Noble is doing great he turned one in April and after just a month of crawling he is walking well more like running everywhere! His torticollis is still there but you can only notice his head leaning when he is tired or not feeling well. They say that you can never really cure it so I guess we will have to see. He is also talking up a storm too many words really for me to list them all he is practically a parrot repeating everything he hears.
We finally got family pictures they turned out great and they were a blast to do. Noble did very well for the most part. He didn't get crabby but he did have a hard time looking at the camera with all of the other neat things around him to look at.
So far our summer has been going great we have been able to have a lot of fun with our friends and family and hope to be able to see more of everyone as the summer goes on. Actually next weekend we are going on a huge family camping trip and we are very excited! The only scary thing is as I mentioned Noble is walking every where and so I am sure he will have lots of things to get into to get himself into trouble.

Cody and I have been living without internet for quite awhile now which has made blogging pretty much impossible. I will try to be more on the ball now that our internet is up and running again. Now to catch things up a bit Noble's Torticollis is doing better. I am not sure he will ever be "cured" but he has been doing physical therapy for the past 6 months and it has really been helping. He has gone from just laying on his back to rolling over, to rolling every where, then to scooting on his belly and for the past few appointments we have been trying to get him to crawl. He is already starting to pull himself up to standing and side stepping around the living room. So anyway at his last appointment his therapist decided that he might just be one of those babies that will never crawl and so she is letting him "graduate" after one more session next month.YAY!!!

Jumping on the band wagon

So I decided to join the rest of the world and create a blog spot for our family. For give me if I am not so good at updating it though because life is kinda crazy for us at times. I do promise to do the best I can.

I guess I will start with a little history of how our family started. Cody and I met May of 2005 at a party we became friends but we did not actually start dating until Jan of 2006 . Cody proposed to me in November of 2006 and we were married that following August of 2007. I became pregnant with Noble the July before Cody and I got married so I was about 3 or 4 weeks along at our wedding.

This is when the real story of our family begins......
My pregnancy was pretty normal no real complications. We were so excited to find out we were having a boy and time seemed to crawl. On the night of April 20th 2008 we were at our usual Sunday night family dinner when I thought my water had broken. Cody rushed me to St Lukes at 9 that night only to be sent home 2 hours later. We went home a little disappointed but relieved that everything was okay. After a few hour of feeling uncomfortable and unable to sleep I decided to jump in the shower in hopes to try and relax my body. When I got out of the shower there was no denying that my water did indeed break and that we would need to head back to the hospital. It was around 1 am when we were finally admitted and I was not really feeling any pain just a lot of discomfort. I guess my water had broken but I was not in labor yet so we just waited in our hospital room for some kind of action to begin. By 7 am I was still not feeling any contraction so they gave me some patosin to speed things up. I handled the pain for quite a while but I finally got my epidural around 9. That seemed to speed things up and by 12 the epidural had worn off. Everything was going good except that Noble was facing the wrong way so we were trying everything possible to get him to face up but it just was not working. At 3:29 pm after hours of pushing and the doctor finally using a vacuum and his hand to turn him we finally had our son Noble Alexander Aschliman 6lbs 4 oz and 18 1/2 inches.

So now 6 months later life is great. Noble is getting big and starting to be such a blast. Things are pretty perfect at least until Monday. He was recently diagnosed with Muscular Torticollis which is a disorder where a muscle on the left side of his neck is short causing him to lean his head to one side. This is normally not a big deal if it is caught before the age of 3 months but Noble is now 6 1/2 months so we are a little scared. We see a physical therapist on Nov 19th and hopfully she will have more information for us.

Anyway sorry that is a lot of information for one post but I just wanted to catch things up.
