Weight: 20lbs at 6 months and 22lbs at 7 months!
Height: 27.5 inches at 6 and 7 months. We don’t know how accurate this is because it’s pretty hard to measure ourselves.
I can’t even believe the difference between 6 and 7 months!
Sleep: He has been sleeping from about 7:30pm to 7:30-8am. Hallelujah hands.
Eating: He still drinks a 6oz bottle every 4 hours. He also loves puffs and baby food. His favorite is fruit, and I can’t blame him!
Diapers: We’ve been in size 4’s since 6 months.
Clothing: I really can’t even believe it, but he fits most comfortably in 12-18month clothes. There are still A LOT of 6-12 pieces that I am squeezing him into because we haven’t gotten enough wear out of them.
Mood: Seriously, SUCH a happy baby. He loves life and still only gets cranky when he is tired.
-Noley is still his favorite. I’m trying not to be bitter.
-UT’s fight song, “Rocky Top”, gets the boy SO excited.
-Mickey Mouse Clubhouse’s theme song sucks him in every time.
-Baby Einstein Activity Jumper. I’m not going to lie, he spends most of his awake time in it cause he loves it so much. The kid doesn’t just jump… He ROCKETS. Like, it’s violent. Haha. As proof of this, he straight up broke the jumper in our church nursery on Wednesday night. So hilarious.
-Daddy is still his favorite parent. Again with trying not to be bitter.
-Taking selfies. This is probably just a testament of how our world is going down the drain, but he lights up when that front-facing camera whips around. Haha.
-Remote controls. He LOVES playing with all of the buttons.
-Being tired. That’s about it. Haha.
What I Want to Remember:
-Gosh, his cheeks. Part of me hopes they never go away, but I know that would probably be the source of some serious bullying in the future.
-This face, I die every time:
-Visting our friends the Lamontes in Tyler, TX. We were supposed to go to a Braves/Rangers game, but it ended up being bad weather. :( We still had a great time though!
-He’s started making this roaring noise (mainly at Noley), and it’s hysterical.
-Uncle Matthew & Aunt Jourdan’s wedding in Asheville, NC. We had a great trip celebrating their marriage and visiting with Aaron’s family.
-Dressing him up as Harry Potter for Halloween. As pathetic as it might sound, I’ve been dreaming about this day since we found out it was a boy. When I would talk about it, Aaron would just laugh at me and roll his eyes, but when it all came together, he finally admitted how awesome it was. I need to enter these pictures in a contest or something.
-Our trip to Florida last week. Aaron and I spent 2 days with my family and then went on a cruise to the Bahamas while Archer stayed behind. He did great with them, and so did I! Haha.
-His crystal blue eyes. People keep telling me they could still change. I selfishly hope they don’t cause they are just too beautiful.
-How Noley puts her paws up on his crib and peers over the edge when he wakes up in the morning or from a nap. He gets SO excited to see her every time. It really is so sweet.
Looking Forward To:
-Being home! This will be the first month since Archer has been born where we haven’t traveled or had visitors staying with us (or both)! Of course we love visiting people and having visitors, but it has made these last 7 months FLY by. I’m ready for time to slow down a little bit.
-The holidays! Although it doesn’t feel like Starbucks should already have their red cups out, I am so excited that Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming. It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!!!
We love you, sweet Archer boy. :)
