The Latest Edition/Addition

Welcome to the world Asher Adam Chaney!   Mom and baby both are fine and healthy.  Asher is so cuddly and precious and  I just can't wait to see what kind of personality he adds to our mix. 

Asher was born on Tuesday, our Dad had a CE course on Friday and Saturday, so we went to visit all of our Louisiana cousins.  Unfortunately, sicknesses of multiple kids and kinds kept many at quite an arms length.  Every family even ended up at the Chaney's pediatrician this weekend!  So, we didn't get to see William, but I picked up the older Chaneys for an all day playdate. 

There was park playing,

crazy peanut butter lunching,

art classes a la Nana,

and backyard swinging.

I tried to wear them out to the best of my ability.  I know they had a great time with each other and really enjoy each other's company.  I just wish they could do it more often.  Some of the best times I remember as a kid were with my Poole cousins.  There were backyard playdates, lunches at Johnny's Pizza, and more.  Now looking back on it, I wonder how the two of them did it with 7 kids total!?!?!? 

That aside, I hope that our 3-7 hour distance doesn't hinder their love and friendship in one another. We are really looking forward to the next visit in Allen in a couple of weeks!
