Bo: 8 Months of Baby-Awesomeness

8 Month picture with a 25 month guest star - Big Brother Moose! 

How Big?: We get to officially weigh in a month, and since the move, momma doesn't have the scale out.... So around 17-18 pounds and 28 inches tall kid! 
Clothing Size?: I seriously need to find this boys summer jammies! He needs 18 month pjs and not to be still wearing fleece! He is wearing pretty much everything 18 month at this point. 
What/When is he eating?: Yes says Bo! FEED ME! He will eat almost ANYTHING. We are feeding him the squeezie packets of baby food, PUFFS like crazy, Yogurt Melts, a TON of guacamole, and anything else he can get a hold of. Baby boy loves to eat. He is still nursing, too! That's right - we have made it further than any Riley baby has ever been before. Taking the record and smashing it on the daily now :) Wooooo. 
Sleep?Bo is having a little sleep regression with the move, sickness, and teething. I am a tired mommy. 
Movement?: He is into everything. This dude is crazy. He climbs. He crawls. He cruises. He chases dogs and his brother. He jumps in a bouncer. Kid wants to go go go. 
Milestones?: New house is kind of the BIG deal for us. Bo also had his first ice cream and cake. (I guess we won't be waiting for his birthday on that.) He is babbling and standing up in his crib. He is getting to be such a big boy.  
Hardest Moment(s) of the Month: Moving is hard. Moving with kids is harder. I cried several times leaving the house that Bo came home from the hospital to. I know that there are great things in store for us as a family, but man oh man. Also, with moving with a crawler... there are boxes everywhere and stuff for him to get in everywhere! 
Best Moment(s) of the MonthI think getting into our new house has been amazing. We are supposed to close tomorrow, but watching our kids play together has made the entire process worth it. You can hear the slap of Bo's little crawling hands, and he can get anywhere he wants. I love how connected it makes us feel!
Looking Forward toSummer.. Summer... Summer...Summer....Summer...SUMMMMMMMER
