Eight Months

Archer:    17lb 2oz
Andrew:  16lb 15oz
Alden:     19lbs

The boys take four bottles a day and eat solids twice a day. We rotate between the following foods squash, green beans, sweet potatoes, peaches, apples, pears, peas, and carrots, usually mixed together two at a time.  Archer gets bananas to help him poop less and Andrew gets prunes to help him poop more.  We also mix rice and oatmeal cereal in with things to thicken them and give the boys some grains. They share about 15 ounces (or 5 oz each) a feeding.  We are still making 90% of our own food thanks to help from Grandma and Baba while mom is back at work.  We are looking forward to trying meat and allergens when we are 9 months. On top of that, we take 4 bottles a day (8oz, 5 oz, 7 oz, and 8 oz with rice cereal added at night).
Archer and Andrew: Size 2s
Alden: Size 3s

Archer and Andrew: 6-9 months (they can still wear 6 month shorts but that is all)
Alden: 6-9 months and 9-12 months

Archer: 2
Andrew: 4

This month we enjoyed the last days of summer and the calm before the mom goes back to work full time storm. We loved playing in our new house and having a revolving door of family and friends come to see the boys.

Cousin Bella came to visit, and she got her picture made with all of us.
 And she brought her Mom and Mimi along too.
