Our family is growing!


I have most certainly neglected blogging over the past year and a half.  Juggling life as a new mom while still working from home as definitely presented its challenges when it comes to spare time.  But..... I come today with good news!  Asher would like to share we are adding another baby boy to our little family soon!  I am sure we are in for a wild ride but we are very excited for the adventure :)

In the event I still have readers out there, I hope this coming year I find more time to get back to blogging regularly- it is something I really enjoy.

Until next time.....

Asher is.....ONE YEAR OLD!


Details....

Our final milestone update and I feel a way about it :(  Watching you grow this past year has been nothing short of amazing.  Every look at you I am reminded of God's goodness and just so grateful!  You remain a sweet and loving little boy with such a laid back demeanor (most of the time).  You definitely know how to turn up when you want to and love flirting with your little lady friends!  You are still a small fry as you are just getting into size 12 months clothes and depending on the brand can still fit in some 9 months sizes.  You are about to graduate out of size 3 diapers as soon as we run out as I have been slipping you into some of your size 4's already.

Milestones....

You are getting around very well by yourself but you are still NOT walking without holding onto things.  I really thought you would have walked at 10 months but you seem to like doing things on your time.  We can tell you know how to walk and would just prefer not to lol.  I hope you go ahead and take off in the next few weeks.  I will be starting the weaning process in a couple of weeks from nursing/breast milk and I am honestly sad about it.  When we first began this nursing journey, it was so difficult I never thought I would make my goal of providing you breast milk exclusively through your first birthday so to think I am sad to give it up it just shocking!  Aside from nursing, you are drinking majority of the time from a sippy cup so it should be easy to wean you from bottles.  I am most concerned about weaning from bedtime nursing so I know that will be the last to go.  You love food- not many things you will not eat as of right now.  I am trying to find more creative food selections for you now as you are you self feeding more and more.

Growing Pains....

Your 12 month well visit is next week so we will see what your stats are then but our own measurements have you at around 20lbs and close to 29 inches long.  You have almost 6 teefies now as well!  You are doing very well in all areas at this time and I am so proud of you!

I am excited to see how you continue to grow and progress into the toddler years.  I am also scared of the terrible two stage but I know it will be fine.  We love you bubs :)

Asher is... Eleven months old!


Details....

I cannot believe we only have one update to go in documenting your first year. It went so fast! Watching your personality develop is so fun. You are the sweetest, most charming little fella and at the same time have a bit of bashfulness to you. Your personality really lights up around people you are most comfortable with at this point which doesn't surprise me since your dad is pretty laid back and mommy is an introvert in many ways. You wear size 9-12 month clothes and are still in size 3 diapers.

Milestones....

You walk well with assistance and crawl at lightening speed now. I honestly thought you were going to walk at ten months but you still aren't confident enough to let go and trust yourself. Maybe it will happen this month but take your time, there's no rush. You are still a mamas boy right now and I love it lol. You eat 3 full meals a day with 2-3 snacks still but you are self feeding more now. You love mango, applesauce, avocado, and chicken. Mixed up veggies are not your favorite but you do enjoy veggies separately. You love baby muffins and eating snacks. This month we will be trying more and more baby led weaning options so you can start relying more on self feeding. You nurse or drink breast milk from a bottle the two days I leave for work 4-5 times a day still. I am hoping you will be weaned from bottle completely by 12 months and taking milk only from your silly cup. I am also going to start weaning you from nursing at 12 months knowing our bedtime nursing session may take a few months longer for you to get used to and that's okay.

Growing Pains....

At your 9 month well visit, you weighed in at 17lbs 6 oz and measured 27.8 inches long. Your head is up to 17.8 inches so I imagine you are around 19ish pounds right now and 29 inches or so long. Your next well visit is a week after turning 12 months so hopefully you grew well over the past 3 months! Your skin is doing so well! You did get a bit of a sunburn a few weeks ago from our family vacation to California but it cleared quickly. You have four teefies now too!

We are full steam ahead at planning your first birthday party now which will be April 29th. It is so crazy we survived a year raising a baby- wow. We love you so so much bubba and thank god daily for blessing us with you!

Asher is......Ten Months Old!



Details....

Holy guacamole!  Total corny mom line right there but I don't care, haha.  Bubba, you are growing up so fast on us.  Active is your middle name as you are into any and everything right now as you explore the world around you.  You are in 9-12 month clothing and still wear size 3 diapers.  Lean and mean is what I like to call you!  You are sleeping through the night consistently and have officially dropped your third nap for an earlier bedtime.


Milestones....

Consistently crawling around on all fours and cruising everywhere.  You are gliding along furniture well in attempts to walk so I assume you will take off sometime between now and a year old.  You are still struggling with separation anxiety and preferring mommy a lot but that's okay bubs.  You still love people but are definitely going through a phased of preferring your parents.  You are eating 3 solid meals a day plus 2-3 snacks and drinking 24 ounces or so of breast milk each day.  You still love water and your favorite foods are applesauce and avocados.  You also love puffs!  You also do well with finger foods.  Bananas are still not your thing but you will eat them if they are mixed in with another food.  You drink well from the sippy cup and this month we will be trying out you feeding yourself with the spoon! 

 
Growing Pains....

At your 9 months well visit, you weighed in at 17lbs 6 oz and measured 27.8 inches long.  Your head is up to 17.8 inches so I imagine you are around 18ish pounds right now and 28ish inches long.   No recent eczema flare ups-yay!  Really this has been a smooth month all around.  I am really proud of you!

We are starting to plan your first birthday party which is crazy! Just 8 more weeks to go and you will be a year old.  Watching the world through your eyes is so exciting and I adore you with all my heart.  Love you bubs!
