How Big?: Bo is 28.5 inches tall and 18 pounds 14 ounces. He isn't quite the size Moose was, but he is certainly holding his own. He is a stockier kid than Moose was and more filled out.
Clothing Size?: He is wearing 12-18 month clothes, though he can wear some of the 2T shorts that Moose had last summer. He is in a diaper size 4, and we are totally done using cloth diapers :( It was sad to let it go, but with all the solid food, the move, not installing our diaper sprayer - it just wasn't working.
What/When is he eating?: Bo loves to eat! His favorite food is watermelon. He also likes oatmeal as long as you put a fruit puree of some kind into it. He eats all the time. If he is cranky, you better check if he is hungry. He is also totally weaned now. That was unbelievably hard to be done with, but I am finished pumping and feeling like I might be a real person these days. He is still drinking frozen milk, and I am hopeful that the milk will stretch his 9 months of only momma's milk to more like 10 or even 11 months. (But he drinks a ton, so that is yet to be determined.)Sleep?: Bo is still routinely waking once or twice a night with the occasional sleep through the night. It's a work in progress, but Sam takes him at night every couple nights and that is seriously EPIC for this tired momma.
Movement?: He now hates to be contained, so the bouncer and the pack 'n play are out. He likes to crawl on his feet everywhere... including out the doggie door! He is a mess and climbs anything and everything. I am not sure when he will walk, but he doesn't seem to be in a rush about it.
Milestones?: Talking - "lalabababadada" No real words yet, but he and Moose have conversations. :) He can shake his booty! This month he went to his SECOND parade and celebrated his first Fourth of July. He got to go swimming for the first time ever and loved it. He ate cheetos for the the first time (classy right?) and pushed down his first friend in pursuit of her goldfish (sorry Shiloh).
Hardest Moment(s) of the Month: There is always something going on here in Riley-land. Bo is struggling with teeth which makes him a bear, and just when we were ready to be in coast mode... we found Epic Mold in our house. UGGGGG The Contractor is supposed to call us back today to set up how to fix that soon. It's just so not fun to deal with that kind of junk.
Best Moment(s) of the Month: FUN! We have had so so so much fun. We have been playing with lots of friends, going lots of places, and doing lots of things. It has been so worth it! We are loving love loving summer!
Looking Forward to: SWIMMING IN OUR POOL.... HOPEFULLY NEXT WEEK! Yeahhhhhhh
