Dear Archer (2 Months)


Dear Archer,

Well sweet one, while your first month I was the high maintenance one, this month, you stepped up your game. Right at week 6, the dreaded reflux set in along with continuing the blasted 45 minute intruder for your naps. It has been an adventure this month trying to figure out the best way to feed you and what your best schedule should be. The good news is that I think we are finally starting to figure things out. Always know, dear one, that no matter what life throws at you, I've got your back and am in your corner. 

This month: 

- You weigh 14 lbs, 2 oz (87%) and are 24 1/2 inches long (97%)
- You wear size 2 diapers
- You are wearing size 3-6 month clothes
- You saw your first snow
- We have settled nicely (finally) into a 3 hour feeding schedule, and you only nurse on one side each feeding.
- You are still waking 1-2 times a night and you still have a dreamfeed
- Your awake time is still 40-45 minutes/feeding cycle
- You are still a champ at the bottle 
- We started giving you a passy which tends to help when you are fussy because of reflux.
- Because of the reflux, I stopped being able to put you down awake for naps because you were so uncomfortable at times. So I am rocking you most of the time. The good news is that if I get the timing right for your awake time it doesn't take very long at all for you to fall asleep.
- Your cooing is the sweetest thing! I love hearing you "talk"
- You are no longer favoring your left side, PRAISE THE LORD! The doctor said your head and neck look great!
- We had your shots this week and the doctor said you look perfect! He also had a nice little chat with me and in very sweet words told me to stop worrying so much about little things! This helped me tremendously and I am doing much better. And, you quickly followed suit and have been doing much better too!

You are a precious, precious baby and I have loved snuggling you! 

Love,
Mommy
