Bo is 16 months old!

16 months sounds way too old! The months just keep flying by!

  • At 15 mo., you weighed 23lb 3oz and were 33 inches tall. That's about 40th percentile for weight and 90th percentile for height. Arabelle was 23 lb and 33 inches at 15 mo.!
  • You have a lot of new words! I can understand a good bit from you, but only a handful of your words are really clear. The clear ones are Mama, Dada, Drake, ball, bye, cup ("gup"), raisins ("ray rays"), and Bo. There are other words that I can understand or know what you mean. When you say spoon, it comes out as "boon" and Arabelle is like "a-ba".  
  • You have learned how to blow a kiss and it's so sweet. :) You always want me to hold you, but you DO NOT like it when Arabelle hugs you! 
  • You have 5 new teeth in the last month....4 molars and your last of the front bottom teeth.
  • You take one nap/day. You go down between 12 and 1 and sleep for about 1.5 hours. We are trying to get you to sleep a little later in the mornings, so we've been keeping you up until 7pm, at least. You usually wake between 6:30 and 7:00 now. You still frequently wake once/night. 
  • You nurse in the morning and at bedtime still. 
  • You love still love to play outside. We usually spend all afternoon outside. 
  • You always have a spoon in your hand. It seems to be your little comfort item. You haven't wanted a pacifier in months, but you NEED your spoon! You don't put it in your mouth or anything, just hold it. It's so strange!
  • You have learned to nod your head "yes", which makes communication a lot easier!

My usual view


  1. I can NOT believe he is 16 months old! Wow. He looks so big!

  2. I love the spoon. That's awesome. Noah did something like that with thermometers. It was very strange!
