This guy turned 3 yesterday! I was scolded by @davidbhutchens for not posting more pics of this adorable, curious, focused, fun-loving little man. So here you go: some highlights from the last 3 years. The last one shows how far Asher has come since his entry to earth, 15 weeks early and weighing under 2 pounds. He is the very picture of "best possible outcome." One of his doctors called him 'my crowning achievement'
#miracles are real #bless
Another #timelapse of the #eclipse in #nashville - clouds add the drama.
But neither iPhones nor human language are sufficient to capture & communicate the primal wonder of this #celestial event. Very emotional
Astral snakes! If the #eclipse hasn't broken Instagram yet - here's a video I haven't seen in my feed. Scientists are at a loss to describe this phenomenon - so I adopted more of a Dungeons & Dragons explanation (audio on). #musiccity#eclipse2017#astralsnakes
I am still awestruck by what we witnessed - never seen a blacker black than that "Black Hole Sun"
Welcome to the world, Magnolia Elizabeth Lentz - a new branch on our family tree this week!
After @piscesmomll and I spent two hours staring into the face of this sleeping angel, it felt like only a nanosecond had passed - clearly, I have taken my position around Maggie's little finger. It also affirmed my decision not to post a lot of social media in the last couple of months, with the intent of experiencing life, not documenting it. "Be here now" is a renewed mantra (thanks, @babaramdass) .
Big brother Asher doesn't quite know what to make of Maggie yet; but, as you can see from the time-lapse, Asher is finding ways to occupy himself (which also explains the sleeping siblings photo...)
After Asher's eventful [harrowing may be a better word] start to life -- born 15 weeks early, under 2 pounds, 3 months in the NICU, many touch-and-go medical moments -- Maggie seems like a piece of cake. Although she is that sweet and delicious, something tells me she will assert what is bound to be an indomitable personality.
Strong work, @britclifford & @gnarlymarl3y
My greatest of joys --
These thoughtful, funny young men
Who used to be boys
These guys!! So great to have the fam together. Almost 24 years into this dad thing, and the dudes continue to amaze, confound and delight me. And the addition of another generation (Asher should have his own IG: just sayin'). Thx for making it all possible, @piscesmomll#haiku#fathersday
