Dear Bo, You're 19 months old...

Here's what you're up to:
  • You weigh 27 pounds 6 ounces and are 32 1/4 inches long.  You wear size 18 months old clothes, a size 4 diaper, and size 5-6 shoes.
  • You are still on a great schedule.  You get up around 7am, have milk while you watch cartoons, have a snack around 10am, eat lunch with milk around noon, take around a 3 hour nap and have juice and a snack when you wake, have supper and milk around 6pm, have a bath around 8pm, then have milk and go to bed.
  • You have "on days" and "off days" eating.  If you're "on", anything goes for eating.  If you're "of", well, nothing works.  In general, you like bananas and french toast sticks, pancakes, oatmeal, and apple nutrigrain bars for breakfast.  For lunch and dinner, you like protein (fish sticks, chicken, edamame, and black beans), a veggie (carrots, green beans), starches (mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes), and a fruit (grapes, blueberries, mandarin oranges, pears).  You love goldfish, raisins, fruit snacks, Ritz crackers, graham crackers, and cheerios for snacks.
  • Your bedtime routine is:  take a bath around 8pm, read 3 books while you have milk, rock and sing, then get in your crib.
  • You say Momma and Da-da, and can repeat cookie, cracker, bye-bye, Buh (for Bo).  You aren't very verbal though.  You point and grunt, but you don't do much more than that.  But...you have great fine motor skills (which is what we still focus on  :-) ).
  • You love Cat in the Hat, Curious George, and Super Why.
  • You like pop up, lift the flap, push-the-button-noise, and Sandra Boynton books.
  • You got a new grill and tool set from the Browns, and you love them.
  • You love to sit on Daddy and bounce like crazy.
  • You want to push anything with buttons and lights...remotes, phones, the alarm...everything.
  • Everything is a telephone.  You love to "talk on the phone".
  • You're obsessed with closing doors and turning faucets on.
  • You love to be tickled.
  • You love the swing set, slide, and balls of any kind.
  • You are a mischevious little guy.  You swing your arms and just look for trouble.
  • You grin and "dance"--shaking your shoulders forward and backwards.
  • You're just plain fun.  We have loved chasing you around this summer.
  • You are a grinning, giggling little boy.  Love it.  Love you.
