More Leo notes

Leo is growing so fast that it seems like there are new little discoveries every day. Here's some examples:
  • Leo is starting to notice our cats. He watches them very closely when they are nearby and has reached out to touch and "pet" Bella several times. Bella is very patient with him.
  • Our house has turned into the Tower of Babble! Leo has gotten very vocal in the past few days. He is making a wide variety of sounds and it is delightful. (I'll post video if I can overcome the technical difficulties I had before).
  • Leo has outgrown many of his 3-6 month clothes.

I had a bunch of videos ready to load and something happened with my computer and they all appear to be deleted, both from the camera and my PC. I don't know if I did something or if it is a technical glitch, but its a bummer either way. :o( Sorry everyone.

Time flies when you're having fun!

It's been a busy December and I apologize for the huge delay between posts. Hopefully this "mega-post" will catch everyone up on Leo's latest goings-on. I'll summarize the last few weeks here. Check out photos below.

We are in the process of converting the office into Leo's room. All of the furniture is on order, so he should be in his nursery by the end of January. Hooray! Leo had his second sleepover at Nona and Grampa Rocky's house so that we could get the work done to clear the room out.

We all had a lovely holiday season. Mom and Dad came to our house for Christmas Eve supper and we all enjoyed opening presents and watch Leo play with his favorite toy--curled gift-wrap ribbon. I unexpectedly got to take the week after Christmas off, so it was a great break and a chance to spend really good quality time as a family.

New Year's Eve was a quiet affair. We stayed home and had our friends Amber and Mark Anthony over for drinks and snacks. We watched Tropic Thunder, which was hysterical.

Leo started daycare (and Mike went back to work) on January 5th. Leo loves daycare--no crying or separation anxiety on his part, but I was a total mess the night before.

Here's some quick facts about Leo:
  • Leo's eyes are definitely brown, and his hair is turning blond.
  • Leo is eating formula regularly now, but we're still challenged with getting him to eat rice cereal (his first semi-solid food).
  • An unofficial weigh-in put Leo at over 15 lbs. last week. He's also getting much taller. It will be time to graduate to size 3 diapers and a new car seat soon!
  • He loves the "Jumping Jumperoo" horse that his daddy got for him. He stays in it for a half hour at a time just bouncing away!
  • Leo also enjoys watching television. (Not sure if this is a good thing.)
  • Leo hasn't quite mastered rolling from front to back yet, but he can roll from back to front like a champ.
