Dear Archer (4 Months)




Dear Archer,

Today you are four months old. You are the sweetest, snuggliest baby! You love to smile and I am so thankful for the sweet times I have to hold you and snuggle you. I am learning a lot this go around about not holding so tightly to my schedules and timelines for you but letting you develop in the timeframe the Lord set out for you. Still, anytime you'd like to start sleeping through the night, I'd be A-OK with that, my friend.

-- You weigh 17lbs 5oz and are 26.75 inches tall
-- You wear size 6-9 month clothes and size 3 diapers
-- You are still eating every 3 hours during the day, and still wake up once in the night
-- You do not love to nap. You are still the king of the 45 minute naps. Sometimes I can get you back to sleep... sometimes not so much.
-- You love your excersaucer! We tried you in it much earlier than your siblings and you would think you were at Disney World. (Just wait... life will get even better when we go there!)
-- You are very amused by your siblings who LOVE to kiss you, talk to you, sing to you, and play with you. I genuinely hope you survive them. I try to protect you.
-- Your reflux is 100% better and gone. Praise the Lord!
-- You do, unfortunately, have eczema.
-- I have finally figured out that you hate your baby bath tub. So I just put you on a sponge in the big bath with barely an inch of water in it and you liked that MUCH better.

You are so very precious to me and I cannot even imagine my life without you. We are beyond thankful for you, Archer Leigh.

Love,
Mommy

PS... please sleep
