Leo - Month 11

Weight: Not sure, probably around 19.5lbs

Nicknames: Leeman, Lee-Lee, Forest Boy, Weeward, Wee-whoa
Clothes: I'm still trying to get one more wear out of your 9 month clothes, but they're getting short and tight. You were a size 2 shoe and a size 3 diaper.
Sleep:  Now that you are out of the Merlin suit, you sleep with a lovey and are the cutest sleeper ever. I sneak in most nights because I can't even help myself. A lot of nights you will sleep with your butt in the air, and you always have your hip-hip snuggled in really close, ideally touching your sweet cheeks. It slays me.

Health: Very healthy baby!
Crying: If Dad or I walk away from you, you will cry bloody murder! Sometimes, you'll get over it, and other times you are downright mad at us! You've been a little whiney/clingy this month but overall, I would say that the crying has reduced quite a bit.
Feeding:  You are still a rockstar eater! It's hard to find foods you don't like, and we try and give you as much variety as we can. Surprisingly, you do not like watermelon and spicy food, but everything else you seem to love. You eat most of your foods all by yourself, and a lot of times don't like it when we try and feed you.

Likes: You love swimming in the pool, you love your cousin Carter, you LOVE Roscoe, you love your daddy, you love standing and "walking", you love eating, and you love your hip-hip. 
Dislikes: You don't like to be left alone, you don't love hats, and you don't like hearing the word "No".
Milestones:  This has been one of your "explosion" months, I would say. You've been army crawling like a champ all month, but just this past week started to get up on all fours and do a classic crawl. You point at everything. You wave hi. You started to say mama, you give kisses (even to your mom lately!!!), and you understand the word "No". 

I think you might be trying to say "moooo" when I ask what the cow says, but that's debatable, you stand up on your own for 2-3 seconds, walk assisted, and learned to pull to stand in your crib!
Places You’ve Gone: We've been local all month, besides a day trip to Newport Beach to visit with family.

Visitors: You met your Dad's Uncle Denny and cousin Karli this month, and we spent a lot of time with Uncle Andrew, Aunt Corie, and Sulley while Uncle Jake and Aunt Lauren came in from Iowa for a visit.

Postpartum: I'm still saying "I just had a baby", but I think I'm going to have to stop saying that here soon!

Roscoe: No one makes you happier, you light up whenever you see him, think he's just the bees knees, and even started fetching with him which is just precious!!!!


  1. So cute that he loves Roscoe so much! Thank goodness my parent's have calm, patient dogs that Oliver lays on because crazy Pixie wants nothing to do with him! He looks SO big in his picture! I can't believe we almost have 1 year olds! Where has this year gone?!

  2. He's so precious, Tess! I can't believe he's already 11 months old. Doesn't time fly so darn fast?!

  3. How?! I refuse to believe he's already 11 months old!!! lol
