Mark ordered some knee pads yesterday ( http://www.babykneez.ca/) to see if it will help Asher's little knees from getting so red and calloused from crawling around all day. It isn't really a problem inside but we have noticed that his little knees are getting sore from crawling outside and with it being shorts weather we thought it may help. They're coming from Canada so it may take a while for them to get there but we did some research and they seem to be the best option out there for this purpose. I'll write how it goes after we use them for a little while.
We also went strawberry picking this weekend and Asher did really well. I was worried how it would go but I guess I worried for nothing. It has been a little challenging lately taking Asher out because he hates being in the stroller or cart but we don't feel comfortable letting him crawl around just anywhere. He had plenty of room to crawl in the rows of strawberries and had a ball squishing them in his hands and making a complete mess. He was covered in pink goo in no time flat. He also went in the moon bounce at the farm. I was worried he would be scared with all the other kids bouncing around him but he was laughing hysterically. He thought it was the best thing ever. I had Parker go in and stay right with Asher so he didn't get jumped on and I have to say that I feel so lucky that Asher has such a great big brother to look out for him. Parker picked Asher up and jumped him all around the moon bounce. It was really cute to see my two boys bouncing and laughing together.
