Dear Bo, You're 25 months old...

Now that the changes aren't so dramatic month to month, these will be quite abbreviated:

Stats: You wear a size 4 diaper, a size 6 or 7 shoe, 24 months pants and 2T tops. 

Eating:  You are in a huge eating phase right now.  You eat everything we give you then some!  You tried popcorn this month and love it; you've been having it while we watch Christmas movies in the evening.    You also were into powdered donuts this month!  Man, oh man, do you enjoy those.   Another favorite is seasoned oyster crackers.   Other than that, it's really been whatever we put in front of you.  With the holidays, there's been more junk than usual.  Maybe that's why you are a bottomless pit right now.

Sleeping:  I'm not sure what is going on with you, but I miss my 8-7:30am sleeper!  You still go down easily, but this is the third week you have been waking up super early and waking crying (you usually wake up and play in bed happily until I come get you)!  The first week, it was consistently at 5:30am.  Whoa.  I don't mind anything after 6am, but anything in the 5's is off limits.  Then last week you switched to 6:30ish.  You've even woken crying in the middle of the night (but go back down easily) recently.  Fortunately, on those mornings you sleep later.  I think it might be your teeth, but I feel like that's the excuse I use for everything.

Talking:  One new word you used this month is Nemo.  You started saying it the very first morning you watched the show.  You also put two words together, "bye Nemo".  You were more verbal this month and made more attempts at trying to say words we encouraged you to say.

Favorite Things:  Nemo!  Oh, my word.  You can't get enough of it.  You would watch it over and over if I'd let you.  You're really into cars and trucks, making cars and trucks sounds, and you still love books and puzzles.

You are still such a happy little thing.  You are all boy; that's for sure.  You are affectionate and love to give hugs (which you do by laying on someone's shoulders), give kisses (with a loud mwaa! afterwards), and sit in our laps.

We love you little buddy!
