Leo - Month 23

  ::: 21  months ::: 22 months  :::
Weight: 24.5lbs

Nicknames: Leeman, Lee-Lee, Wee-whoa
Clothes: 24mth (although we need some Pajamas for the fall and winter and I will likely buy 3T),  6 shoe, 5 diapers
Sleep:  You've been a great sleeper this past month. Right when we have you on a perfect schedule....why don't we have another baby!

You wake at like 7:40ish but I leave you in the crib until just about 8am. Thank you love!
8:00am Breakfast- most mornings we go right to breakfast now and you have your milk in your sippy cup.
9-12am play
11:30am/12pmish- lunch
1:15 pm nap
3:30pm snack 50% of the time & playtime
6:00pm dinner with a cup of milk
7:30 pm  bed

Health: You have had perfect health all month long and it's been lovely, amazing, and we are very grateful for it!

Crying: Maybe I'm having amnesia because you're almost two and I just think you are the bee's knees but I think you've been mainly happy this month.
Feeding:  Still somewhat a vegetarian but we've gotten you to try a few bites, and after your dramatic swallowing of them we don't make you have any more than that. You also got a little sick of mac & cheese this month, so we've had a little more variety which I think has been good for all of us.

Likes: Oh buddy, you honestly just like life. You had a few really fun activities this month that you loved; boat rides (and finding seaweed), a Touch a Truck event that you talked about for weeks (helicopter!!!), trips to the beach, friends house, and fun activities. 

You love bubbles, food, your stuffed animals, any toys that can go, RoRo, going for walks, being outside, being around people, and taking bubble baths.
Not Liking: Diaper time is getting a little trickier.

Milestones: Your talking and general cognitive development continue to amaze me. You are pretty solidly speaking in two word sentences, and throwing in 3/4 word sentences every now and again. You can parrot back anything we say, including counting and the alphabet. 

We put a little banner of flags out for dad's birthday, and as soon as you saw them, you knew what they meant. You woke up from nap and said, "ohhhhhhhh, happy birthday!".

I also think it's pretty funny, we read some of your favorite books by request, all the time and you've started to know/memorize what each page says. Also, you've associated some of the pages as phrases. For example, there's a page in the Big Fish book that says "Watch out, I'm going in", and yesterday as we were walking up the stairs, I told you to "watch out" and you replied with "I'm going in".

I love to see your memory in action too. You can often recall what we did during the day when we talk at the dinner table, you remember what you ate, and the friends you played with.
Places You’ve Gone: We took a road trip to Iowa this month to visit your Uncle Jake and Aunt Lauren and meet their new baby Lillian. You were really great in the car (thanks to Mickey Mouse) and had a ton of fun with your cousins.
Roscoe:  He is your best friend, you shower him with love and he is often the first person you ask for when you wake up in the morning.
