Holy cow, how has it already been 5 months since A was born. It really has flown by and been the best months of my life. I love being a mom, and I love being able to stay home with A and take care of him. I am the luckiest girl there is to have little mister A as my babe. Archer is learning and progressing so much its insane. I see a little man now instead of my little baby. He is constantly changing & learning I can’t keep up!
Size | Archer is in size 2 diapers & 6-9 clothes. He is growing so fast its insane. He is weighing at about 20-22 lbs even though he weighs so much he isn’t chunky. He is just a big boy, which is okay with this momma! Bigger babies are much healthier & we already know he has a good future on his hands. Football player like his daddy, motocross rider like his uncle Brody & Grant, medical field like his Uncle Colten, and anything western for Aunt Jaycie & Grandpa Brett! Our little guy is going to be such an awesome kid I can but I cannot wait to see what he grows into.
Hair | His hair is getting thicker on top! Its still kind of a lightish brown color and is SO cute. We do a comb over, mohawk, spikes, etc. I love it!!
Eyes | Oh baby they are blue!!
Eating | Archer is eating food like a champ! Our pedi gave us the okay to feed him anything we eat as long as it is pureed. Every morning he eats a fruit+rice/oatmeal+yogurt and then he has a small lunch time snack, and then for dinner he has whatever we are eating (pureed of course) + some type of baby food. I am still making all his baby food from scratch and I love it! I feel so good being able to make the food for my baby and not have to feed him store bought that I dunno what has happened to it! We had to change his formula because he kept throwing up! So we are good to go and he is still eating his bottles during the day, along with apple juice in his sippy cup!
