When I got back from my trip to Winslow, J.D. had the crib set up. Bo has been sleeping in my top dresser drawer for the last 3 1/2 months. (joke) The cradle that my parents got when I was born held little Bo since he was born, but he's huge now so he's in his own room in a big boy crib. He likes to throw his feet up high and slam them down. Sometimes I know he's awake because I hear that.
I keep telling him "stop being so cute!" But he's stubborn like his momma.
Clearly he found his toes. And he started rolling over from his back to tummy. A few weeks ago he did the opposite, but it was really an accident. He just really didn't want to be on his tummy. He hates exercising. Just like his momma.
UNLIKE his momma, he looks like his dadda! 1/20 people say he looks like me. I see J.D. like most people.

It has been too long since I've let my 8 blog readers whats new in Mama Barker world. And in case you don't read my status updates on facebook every 8 hours...Enjoy! These pictures are in no order, and I have to try to do this quick while Bo is taking a nap. :)
Our neice Lexi came to stay with us for few days. She was a big helper. So good of a helper she asked me 'Why do you always tell me what to do?' Poor thing. We played Candyland, Barbies, colored her Dora coloring book, watched Cinderella and Matilda over and over again, traced letters and read books. She helped me change diapers, played quiet when Bo was sleeping and took care of Roxy, or as she calls her "Rocks" Hey Rocks, whatcha doing? Rocks, move! Rocks go downstairs! :)
LOL, one day during Alexa's visit J.D. took her swimming while I took Bo to JCPennys to get his pictures taken. We wore both the kids out! We took them with us to run errands on Saturday evening and Bo fell asleep right when we got in the car like he usually does. Lexi was right behind him. We got to Costco and she would not wake up so J.D. put her in the cart. Neither of them moved an inch the whole Costco trip. Everyone was making comments like "how cute, look at that, somebody's tired, now THATS how you take the kids to the store!" They fell asleep around 7pm and Lexi didn't wake up til 8:30am!
Lexi 'holding' Bo. He's almost too big for her to hold anymore! But this little position works! And look how helpful she is with the Binki!
Taking a walk...
My little baseball player. Or so his dad hopes.
Jessica & family came for a few days when Bo was blessed. Now when I talk to Lydia on the phone she says 'lemme talk ta Baby Bo! Hi baby Bo...hi! hi! Watcha doin?! Huh baby Bo? " :)
This picture cracks me up. Lydia was wearing a dinasaur bath towel after her bath. J.D. was trying to tell her to roar like a dinasaur.
I so try to do tumy time with him everyday, but he so hates it :) I just noticed my feet over there on the right, how did I take this picture :)
We were so lucky to have Grandma Lo Lo (Laurie) here for Bo's birth and blessing. She's awesome! We can't wait to go to Maryland for Thanksgiving!
Every once in a while I'll go up the street to Dawn's and hang out. We call Dawn Bo's girlfriend. When I was in labor Dawn came to see me. When she got there, Bo's heart rate started going up. When she left, it went back down. So now we like to say he has a crush on her. Who doesn't, she's a pretty girl!
We went up to Winslow when J.D. needed some teeth worked on. Roxy watched over Bo for the first half of the trip. The second half, I had a bulldog head on my lap and the baby was holding my finger.
And last but not least, we took Bo to his first Diamondbacks game when Aunt Vicki and Uncle Darrel were in town. We were able to show off the cute little outfit Aunt Pam and Aunt Lori got him!

After 24 hours of labor...I was so tired.

At the end of April J.D. went with my dad, Troy & Seth to Chicago for a 4 game Cubs series. They had so much fun. The highlight of the trip was when J.D. caught a grand slam ball hit by Ryan Theriot. It was his first career grand slam so he wanted the ball back (which J.D. was happy to return), R. Theriot gave him a signed bat, it's really cool. It was a once in a lifetime experience! I was happy he was able to go and that it was so much fun.
I told lots of people that I was going to try out for Wheel of Fortune when they came to Phoenix this year...I love watching and playing from home so I couldn't pass it up! No one was able to go with me so I went alone, no big deal. I made friends in line. But too much standing, not enough food or water for too long and I realized I wasn't going to get called up on stage so I headed for the door. Next thing I knew I was on the ground, someone had a wet cloth on my neck, someone was trying to give me water, calling 911 and asking if I was diebetic. Once I had water I was fine, so was the baby. J.D. came and picked me up and I've been drinking lots of water ever since!
We went on a 'babymoon' a couple weeks ago to San Diego, just the two of us for the last little road trip without kiddos. We stayed at Mission Beach, had breakfast at Konos, layed by the pool and went to dinner. It was nice, I think I slept the whole way home in the back seat.
May 22nd was my last day of work at Reach Local! They had a team lunch for me, it was nice send off and I really appreciated it!
I've been having major swelling the last couple weeks, today was the first day I really kept my feet up for most of the day and its made a huge difference, my feet almost look normal! Cutting back on salt and diet coke, and drinking more water is helping too I'm sure. Whew! I'm ready to hold be done being pregant, 9 months is long enough!
I'm still keeping busy with Miche, and hope to focus on it even more now that I'm a stay at homer.
Hope I still have readers even though I've been blog-MIA for a while. :)

Here's my updated baby bump. I'm in month 6. My belly button isn't pushed out yet, but it's thinking about it. I'm finally noticably prego, where people at the store ask how far along, or if its a boy or girl. J.D. keeps telling me to look at them and say, are you talking to me? what baby? J.D.'s mom, Laurie was in town last week, she spoiled me and the baby at Old Navy, thanks Laurie! Look at these little teeny swim trunks and flip flops she got for baby him.

J.D. is on a snowboarding trip in Colorado with his family. I had to work so I couldn't go. Roxy has been waiting at the gate.
I needed some sun and it's gorgeous outside so Roxy and went to the pool area. I read a book. She laid in the shade.
I found this table on craigslist for $60 last week.
This was on my phone from when Jessica came down at the end of January to see The Lion King at ASU Gammage. The room was a mess, but the kids make up for it. I love the look on Jonahs face. Oh, and sorry about the camera movement. I was band from being the camera person years ago when we would get home and try to watch a Stars performance and we would all get motion sickness.
