Rollin', rollin', rollin'

Leo hit another milestone yesterday--he rolled over from his back to his tummy! He is not quite able to get from his tummy to back yet but is getting close. Hopefully I'll be able to catch some video of a rollover soon and post it here!

I was finally able to capture video of Leo laughing (which is, to us, the best sound in the world). Our friend William Holt paid us a visit and Leo was very happy to see him.

Uncle Junior

Grandpa and Grandma Napolitano sent these photos of Mike's Uncle Anthony "Junior" Napolitano. They think that Leo bears a resemblance to him, and I have to agree! These pics are Junior as a baby, at his first communion, and as a member of the NYPD, circa 1955. I think he was a handsome man and if Leo turns out looking like Junior he'll be quite a playboy!

Happy Birthday

I'm celebrating my 36th birthday in style--a four-day weekend relaxing at home with my "boys" capped off with a mini spa day featuring a facial and pedicure. Yay! Also, Mike got me a wonderful Flip video digital camera for my b-day/Xmas, so look for videos here soon!

Leo and Leo, Week 13

Here's the latest in the "Leo and Leo" installments (photo at right, compared with his 8-week photo) You can see that baby Leo is now able to look straight up at the camera. He's gotten much longer (his feet go off the edge of a receiving blanket) and developing muscle and getting heftier. He was 12.8 pounds as of last week, and as Aunt Christina says, he has pecs!

Leo's Third Month

Leo's had an exciting couple of weeks. He was a very cute monkey for Halloween but he only Trick or Treated at two houses before he conked out. Developmentally, he's been going through some changes. He's found his hands and seems to always have them in his mouth. Leo loves playing the "stand up" game and will lock his little legs and stand up (with us holding his hands or body for support), giggling and smiling the whole time. Leo has also started to attempt to roll from his back to his front. He gets his legs up and over (always to the left) and spins in "donuts" on his play mat but it won't be long until he masters it. Leo has slept through the night a couple of times now, but it still isn't consistent. We are going to start him on rice cereal in the next day or two to see if that helps.
