Asher is....Nine Months Old!


Wow.  How in the world has nine months gone by already?!?  You no longer can lay still for long enough to get a decent milestone photo.  You simply do not want to be a baby anymore and it breaks me into a million pieces,  You are in size 9 month clothes mostly but you can go between size 6-12 months range depending on the pieces.  You wear size 3 diapers.  You are on the shorter side and very lean/muscular- like a mini version of your dad!  We are doing a little bit better in the sleep department but you have become quite inconsistent with your naps and bedtimes.  I am hoping this month things get back to normal. 


You are so ready to take off walking!  At this rate, you will be walking by 10 months but selfishly I don't want you to be an early walker because it means you aren't my little baby anymore :(  You are still preferring mommy at this age but you love hanging out with daddy as his little sidekick.  I can't believe how smart and independent you can be as well.  You are eating solids now 2-3 times each day between a puree and finger foods.  You LOVE water which is so odd for a baby to me lol, and you love applesauce and green veggies.  You still receive breast milk 5-7 times each day either through nursing or a bottle when I am away.  Now that you are 9 months, we will be increasing your solids to 3 times each day with 2-3 snacks and enforce the sippy cup more often so you can be on target at 12 months from being weaned from bottles and hopefully down to nursing only at bedtime if at all.

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.  You are developing right on track and while you are a smaller baby (blame mommy and daddy for their petite frames) you are gaining weight appropriately.  Your skin is looking so much better as you have not had any recent eczema issues.  Your complexion has darkened up quite a bit since birth to a beautiful golden color.  Your hair is starting to get more curly but still on the fine side.   

This year is blazing by.  Before I know it, we will be celebrating your first birthday and running all around the house trying to keep you out of trouble.  You are my absolute everything and I love you so much.

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 :)
