I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a crawler…

8 months old
By Mom & Dad

There are so many new, fun things to report – milestones for Mom, Dad, and Archer!

  1. Foods: Archer loves bananas and pears, but needed a little convincing with peas, and a lot of convincing with broccoli
    – Mom and Dad learned that they can hide less-loved foods with faves, as evidenced by Guacabana (or Banacado, if you prefer)

  2. Sleeping: Archer no longer needs to be swaddled
    – Mom and Dad have learned to appreciate his new sleeping positions, especially the one where he sticks his butt in the air
  3. Smooches: Archer now shows his affection by putting his mouth in the general vicinity of our face, and then hanging out for a bit
    – Mom and Dad are learning to keep something absorbent nearby for clean-up

    My chompers – hard to miss!

    New chompers: hard to miss!

  4. Chompers: Archer’s first two bottom teeth sprouted in mid-March. The next teeth are generally expected up top. His third tooth showed up – on the bottom!
    – Mom and Dad have learned to expect the unexpected
  5. Movement: Archer did the “creep,” then the “plank,” and now he’s crawling! See below!
    – Mom and Dad are planning to relocate some of Archer’s toys to the places he’ll probably cruise on his crawls

Check out Archer’s crawling style!

      I’d felt funny about the lack of content in the other recent posts. There’ve been so many funny videos, so for a while there our blog had become a “vlog.” 🙂
      Glad you enjoyed it!
