he's growing and filling out. at the doctor last monday, he was already 9 lbs 11 oz and 21.5 inches. this is him next to the 700 page book (Gunfighter Nation) that I've been reading for class. we are both happy that i finally finished it. my class is called Contemporary Revisions of the American West. so we've been watching old westerns and talking about cowboy culture. i made the mistake of trying to take bo to class last tuesday, but he did not like it. luckily my prof was nice about it. from now on, we are sticking to the plan and he is staying at suzie's.
