Leo 18 months pics

Moving out and up!

We spent February getting our house ready to sell. It was a lot of hard work, but it paid off! We got a firm offer on our home in just five days and are now under contract.

We have to move out of our home by March 30, so we started looking for a new home right away. We've found a beautiful 4-bedroom, 3 bathroom home in Murray, a suburb just south of Salt Lake City. It is on a quiet, dead end street just three minutes' walk from a nature reserve with the Jordan river, parks, and trails. We put an offer in yesterday and have our fingers crossed that all goes well.

Leo's 18 mo checkup

Leo's last checkup went very well. He is in the 50th percentile for height, the 50th for head size, and 7th for weight. He's up to 23 lbs. now and back in the healthy range.

Leo's had persistent ear infections/fluid in the ears since December. We are taking him to a specialist on March 18 to determine if he will need to get tubes. Leo's speech is a little bit on the low end of the scale, but it may be related to his ear issues.

Otherwise, Leo is right on target in terms of health and development. He is still a happy, sweet boy most of the time, though he has learned to cross his arms and look sullen when he doesn't get his way.
