Asher is....Seven Months Old!


Time please stand still.  My little human is growing up at rapid speeds.  If I blink too long, I may miss something.  You are continuing to show more and more of your personality.  Definitely laid back- very calm and peaceful in public but at home where you are comfortable you like to show mommy and daddy who the boss is lol.  You are comfortably in size 6 month clothing and can fit some 6-9 months now.  Depending on the brand, you can still fit into your 3-6 months clothes due to your short stature.  You are still in the size 2 diapers and you are sleeping through the night!


You are doing great with solid foods so far.  You eat solids one to two times each day and are still exclusively breastfed going between nursing and bottles when I am away.  You have started the sippy cup, are officially crawling, and have two bottom teeth!  You want your mommy a lot these days which I don't mind :)  You have grown leaps and bounds between months 6 and 7.   You welcomed two baby girl cousins in November and watched a new president get elected.  You also started big boy baths- no more infant tub!

Growing Pains....

You have had a pretty smooth month without any major issues.  Your eczema and reflux are both consistently better and improve more and more as you get older.  You do not have another well visit until you turn 9 months so I have no growth to report but you appear to be growing as expected!

I am so proud of you bubba!  Everyday you amaze me more and more and make me one proud mama bear :)

Mommy Gift Guide 2016

I cannot believe how quickly 2016 has gone.  Now that Asher is part of our world, I am excited to see this time of year through his eyes.  But of course, mommy could not help herself and decided to put together a little list our her own :)  A little something for the home, shoes, a few accessories, and my annual Erin Condren life planner.  Whether you are a mom wondering what to put on your list, or you are looking for ideas on what to buy for the mom in your life this year, hopefully my short list will help you this holiday season.

What's on your list this year?

Asher is...Six Months Old!

Posted late because the little guy was under the weather on the day he turned six months :(

I simply cannot believe you are already halfway to a year old!  Time is literally flying by.  Bubba remains your primary nickname and your charming personality continues to unfold.  You "appear" to be a big baby but are actually a small fry.  You finally outgrew 0-3 month clothes officially and are still comfortable in 3-6 months clothes.  The 6 month size is still a little roomy on you for now.  You are still in size 2 diapers and finally are sleeping more consistently through the night-hallelujah!


What is it that you can't do at this point?!?  You started solids this past two weeks and are doing great!  So far you have only eaten fresh/organic sweet potatoes, avocado, and bananas.  You have also had Earth's Best organic rice cereal plain and with bananas.  We are trying squash, baby oatmeal, and spinach/bananas over this next week.  Your favorite so far was avocado :) You grab the spoon and try and feed yourself which is a great sign you are doing well with fine motor skills.  We are also about to introduce the sippy cup!  You are so strong and so active, mommy and daddy literally cannot turn our eye away from you for a single second of you will have rolled your way into the next room.  Time to baby proof! We dedicated you to The Lord on October 16th and couldn't be happier or more proud.

Growing Pains....

You spent your six month birthday not feeling well which is so sad because you are never sick. You are the happiest and most joyful little guy so it breaks mama's heart to see you in pain.  At your six month appointment you weighed in at 15 lbs 9 oz and are 26 inches long.  You are in the 14th percent tile for weight and 21th percent tile for height so you are still on the smaller side but growing well against the chart.  Your head is 17.3 inches placing you in the 66th percent tile.  Your eczema and tinea neck rash is improving each day and your reflux is not nearly as bad the older you get and that is without medicine!  Don't get me wrong, you are still a happy spitter/drooler and we will be SO HAPPY when you are out of this stage but things are getting better. 

You are the beat of my heart kid.  Mommy and daddy love you sooo much!

Asher is....Five Months Old!


Five months?!?!  I cannot believe you are almost to a 1/2 year old!  You are such a joyful baby. We mainly call you Bubba as a nickname now.  You still love people and are quite the ladies man.  You are in 3-6 month clothes and can still fit some of your 0-3 months clothes.  You are in size 2 diapers and are averaging 5-7 hours of sleep consistently before waking up.  You love to fight your sleep so your bedtime is extremely inconsistent! 


You are now 100% transitioned into your crib.  This is earlier than I originally wanted to graduate you to your nursery but you are such an active little boy that you have outgrown your bassinet!  You roll and roll so you like the pack n play a lot more now because you have the freedom to move around as you wish.  You really love to hide in the corner of your pack and play!   You are now grabbing my face, necklaces, hair, earrings- nothing is safe!  You love to suck your lips as well.  You took rice cereal for the first time two weeks ago and seem to like it.  We will be starting you on solids within the next few weeks so sometime before your 6 month update.  You have your dedication later this month which we are very excited about!

Growing Pains....

You did not have a Dr appointment this month, but my guess if you are around 17 lbs and 26-27 inches.   You still spit up quite a bit and are no longer taking reflux medicine.  Your eczema is off and on, but doing pretty good most of the time.  You are still drooling up a storm which has resulted in a pretty nasty drool rash underneath your neck as it is near impossible to keep that area dry :(  We are still rocking the exclusive breastfeeding thing and doing lots of laundry!

You are the best little human.  I love you so much!
