This week’s Snapshot is about my sweet Asher.
I didn’t realize it had been so long.
He was the subject of one of the first Sunday Snapshots I ever posted.
Almost a year and a half ago.
And another about nine months ago, where I bemoaned how much he had grown up…
so, so quickly.
Evidently, he hasn’t stopped.
Asher is finishing up his 5th grade year in school.
His favorite subject is science. And recess. And lunch.
And he has grown ridiculous amounts in the last few months.
He is almost 5’2″.
He weighs 126 pounds.
And he wears a size 12 shoe. Men’s size 12.
I think he gets his size from his daddy.
But those freckles?
Those are from his mama.

Happy Sunday, y’all!
What a HANDSOME young man! 12? Wow. That boy has QUITE a bit more growing to do!
Such a cutie!! And ya know what's crazy?? When I first "met" you, he was 6…the age Kiara is now…that blows my mind!! Why does it have to go so fast?!!? So hard on a momma's heart! 😉
He is handsome!! And you are right about getting big! My 12-year-olds (the boys) are between 85-95 lbs and I can't remember how tall, but not as tall as your Asher. The shoe size!!! You must be kidding?? Mine wear men's size 6, and I thought that is big.

My Kaish is in fifth grade too. He also has big feet. No freckles though. Lots of smiles : )
Oh Stefanie! He is just so handsome! They do grow up awfully fast – too fast for me! My 11 year old has about 10 pounds to go and then he will weigh as much as me!!! Sigh!
Veronica Lee says
What a handsome young man! He's taller than I!!!
Don't you sometimes wish he had a pause button that you could click on so he could remain that cute little boy just a little longer?!!
I loved the photos. In the two photos before the last one he looks like he is standing outside of the photo which is a really great effect.
(don't know what went wrong with my linky photo but today I am a frog. LOL)
Great shots. My girls are only 5 & 3 and I am still amazed at how fast they are growing. I can't even imagine what they will look like when their 12! Stopping by to participate in my first SS, wonderful to meet and follow you 🙂
oh my gosh – they say they grow so fast but they forget to warn you they will could get bigger than you!

Thank you for the hop! It's scary to me to see blogger friends' boys growing up. My eldest is 4 and I CANNOT imagine him all grown up over 100 pounds, but I know it will come so soon…scary!
The Gang's Momma! says
Oh, he's getting so grown up looking. Too cute 🙂
Yep, you're handsome boy is definitely looking more grown up, even with those cute freckles.
Hey, Stef! Mr. Asher is as goooooood-loooooooooooooookin' as ever!!!! Can't believe that boy has a size 12 foot already…your sweet gentle giant. How's his gluten free diet going?

Such a cutie! And I suspect he will be very TALL with those feet. Will is 13 and 1/2 and not even a men's 7 yet!!!! just shy of it.
Size 12 in MENS shoe? My husband only wears an eight! Wow! He's a cutie!
Oh I know exactly what you are saying because I have a daughter the same age. She wears a bigger size shoe than me and is almost as tall. I am not ready to move in to Middle School next year – sometimes I just want my baby back 🙂
Why do they have to grow so fast?
He's too adorable!!
He has grown! What a handsome little (even though I know he's big ~ makes a mama's heart feel better to call them little, right?) guy he is. I love that he loves science, recess and lunch. Hands on, active and an eater. Sounds like the perfect recipe for a wonderful boy!
love your blog, what a charming family. You are truly blessed!
He is soooo handsome!!! It's amazing how quickly they change in one year!
Mens 12 shoes?!!! Holy cow!!! I love freckles. My son has freckles too – he says "how will a lady ever marry me, when I have freckles?!!!" Asher is gorgeous. I love his name too!
Gosh….he's adorable! 🙂 Um….how you gonna keep the girls away? You better start formulating a plan!:)
Hey- I also sent you an e-mail regarding An Orphan's Wish. I have NO idea if I used the "right" address or not. If you don't get the e-mail would you mind e-mailing me at: firstname.lastname@example.org? I have a question for you!
3 Peanuts says
Stef!!!! You cannot leave us hanging like this…I know you closed your comments but I am and have been praying for you. I am really anxious to hear what happened next. Please don't make "eventually" too long form now. I am hoping God opened those doors and you found your way through them!
Football and Fried Rice says
He's huge!! 😉 lol..and very handsome! Good to see you, Asher!
Love these shots of Asher…..man, is that boy STUNNING! I thought my WonderBoy's feet were big at 11.5 Mens……but your Blondie has him beat.
Guess it'll be online shoe shopping once they hit the teens (shoe size that is, cause at this rate their shoes will hit the teens before they do!)
