We also ordered us a Master Bedroom Suit and I am SO excited about it. We have been married for almost 6 years, and all we have had in our bedroom is our bed (no headboard) and an old dresser that my granddaddy built in 1979! So we should have our new bedroom in a couple of weeks. We actually came THISCLOSE to getting this exact set right before we moved in to our new house, and backed out of getting it but when we went to the furniture store, we were drawn right back to it.
The kids are doing great! They recovered really well from their surgeries and we've only had 1 case of strep since March! :) Asher did actually test negative this last time I took him so that's a little reassuring that he may not be a carrier after all. He just finished up a few extra weeks of ISR lessons since he was so sick when he took back in Jan/Feb and it was so great to see him floating in his full winter clothes and diaper all by himself. He is such a sweet baby. I hope he stays sweet like he is. Gregg and I are thinking he is our sweetest baby so far. Just has such a sweet demeanor! I went back and looked at Kaidi's "9 Month Old" post that I blogged and couldn't get over the size difference! Kaidi was 18 lbs and wearing 6-9 clothing and Asher is 24.5 lbs and wearing 18 month clothing! LOL Kaidi is a pretty good big sister (most of the time) she has her sweet moments and then sometimes I think Asher will never survive! :) Nah, she's not that bad. She is SO stinking smart and her vocabulary is truly phenomenal! I cannot get over how well she speaks and how good she is putting her sentences together. She can tell you a full story and won't miss a beat! I have been working on her with some of the letters of the alphabet. She recognizes "W, R, O, Z, K, S and sometimes Q". She can count to 14 and her favorite thing right now is puzzles. I'm not talking about 4 pc puzzles with knobs, I am talking 25pc jigsaw puzzles. I took a video of her on my phone the other day and she put together her 25 pc Dora puzzle in 7 1/2 minutes with VERY limited assistance.
I just looked back at my last post and realized it had been January since I last posted any pictures, so I will add a
few PILE from the last few months so you can see how much they have changed!

|Blue Eyed Girl!|
|In February, My parents and I took the kids to the Annual Cookies With Characters and Kaidi LOVED|
every bit of it. I think seeing Minnie Mouse was the highlight of the day for her.
|LOVE how this picture of Asher and Pluto turned out!|
|In March, we had a baby shower for Gregg's little sister Angel and this was Kaidi enjoying a leftover cupcake|
the next day. Her hair is actually french braided herE (for the first time) She is so precious! :)
|Looks like I caught them scheming up something together!|
|They start young at the Ramer House with chores! :)|
Actually, Kaidi LOVES to help with laundry. I let her unload it in to the basket from time to time.
|My mom and I took the kids to the beach for the day and met my sister and her family , who were|
there for the week, The kids had the best time. I think Kaidi could stay out there all day!
|This was Asher's first trip to the beach. I was actually wondering if he was gonna be a beach baby too, and he|
DEFINITELY is. He LOVED it! He barreled through the sand and had the best time! It was a very pleasant trip.
|We went to an Easter Egg hunt at my parent's church and it was fun to see the kids in action.|
|Kaidi was helping Asher put some in his bucket! :)|
|Easter Bunny Goodies! :)|
|My sweet little babies!|
|Is that not just precious! :)|
|Gregg with Kaidi and Asher|
|Me with Kaidi and Asher|
|Kaidi got a kite from one of her friends at school and we tried really hard to fly it one afternoon with her.|
It was quite an adventure! :)
|Asher sat in the yard and played while Gregg and Kaidi tried to get it flying.|
|Kaidi was not too happy that her kite broke. :(|
|A few weeks back, we took the kids to the Montgomery Zoo. They have an exhibit there where you can feed the|
Giraffes. Kaidi was pretty interested in that, until it wrapped her hand up in it's tongue! :)
|This did her in! LOL|
|Gregg, Asher and I riding the train.|
|This past Sunday the weather was pretty hot (95 degrees) so I got Gregg to blow up a small pool I got from|
the dollar store and filled it up and let it sit in the sun while the kids napped. Once Kaidi got up she was ready to go swim!
|Asher enjoyed it a lot more than I thought he would considering it was pretty shady by the time he woke up and got in.|
He really just enjoyed watching Kaidi. He loves everything she does!
On April 10, we welcomed a new member to Gregg's family. John Weston Householder arrived and as bad as Gregg and I both wanted to be there, we missed it :( We both were at the hospital just a few hours before she had him, but he had a meeting in Dothan he had to be at and I had to get back to work. As soon as Gregg came back in to town we headed over to Andalusia and finally that night (around 10 or 11) they brought John to Angel and Gregg was the first one to hold him. He was so proud (as you can tell in the picture below)

|One proud Uncle Gregg! :)|
Ok, so now that I feel like I have caught you all up on pictures of what has been going on the past few months, here are a few more from Heather Newman's Photography that we had taken the end of March.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend. Gregg is going on a trip with his Dad to the races in Talladega so I am not sure what me and the kids will get in to! :) Probably Laundry! :) (there's ALWAYS laundry to do at our house)
Maybe I will do another post before Atlas arrives! :) We'll see! ;)
