Asher is....Eight Months Old!



I am constantly amazed by you.  Your little personality melts me to a million pieces.  You have graduated into 6-9 month clothes and are about to transition yourself into size 3 diapers.  You were sleeping so good through the night but this past week you are regressing and waking up screaming 1-2 times a night.  I don't know what is going on but I sure hope you return back to being a good sleeper again soon.

It is official!  You can pull yourself to standing and stand unassisted all by yourself!  You are still preferring mommy a lot but you are also so independent at the same time.  We are trying out finger foods and so far, you are not at all interested in them.  You still prefer pureed solids and breast-milk, but you also really like water!  You love bath time!  You celebrated your first Christmas and New Year and you are so active your dad and I do not get a free moment as our entire day is keeping up with you.
Growing Pains....

Not much to report here other than your sleep regression and recent rosy cheeks due to eczema flareups.  Your skin gets very dry and irritated with the colder weather :(  Mommy has to keep you coconut oiled up!  I am looking forward to your 9 month well visit and hope that you have grown well against the growth curve. 

You are at such a fun age and I am enjoying every moment of seeing the world through your eyes.  Love you little man!

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.

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!
