Clothes: You are pretty steadily in 12-18 months clothes. Pants are pretty big at the waist, but overall we are getting lots of wear out of this lot of clothing size. Still a size 4 diaper and rocking a 4.5 shoe.

Health: You have been a very healthy boy despite having your hands in your mouth ALL MONTH LONG! I think you are cutting your molars but nothing has popped up yet! 
Crying: I would say your specialty is more whining.
Feeding:  You have been a really big eater this month! You have been cleaning your plate and getting a variety of foods lately! The other day, I was talking at the dinner table to Dad and said, "wow, Leo is eating like a horse" and you smiled sweetly and replied "neigggghhhh".

Likes: You love to climb, you love to test our limits, you love to be held, you love to explore, run around, push carts/brooms/swiffers around, play with Roscoe, and kick a ball around.

Dislikes: When you aren't getting attention
Milestones: Lots of new words popped out this month; pasta, uh-oh, friends names (GiGi, JJ, Man-da, Tucker, etc.), sock, shoe, baby, "tootles", light, bye-bye....a new one pops up almost every day it seems.

We are constantly impressed by you...You have this big ISpy book, and you can point to lots of different pictures (crib, cup, monkey...whatever it may be). We have lots of fun with that! You also are trying really hard to jump which is pretty darn cute! 
Places You’ve Gone: Well, sweet Leo, you moved cross country this month. We packed up our apartment in Los Angeles and moved into a house here in the Chicago suburbs. You have had so much fun taking in your new surroundings; checking out snow, deer, and seeing your grandparents almost every single day.
Visitors: You are a loved little boy. You had lots of visitors in LA coming to love on you and kiss you goodbye, and have had lots of visitors in Chicago coming to love on you and kiss you hello.

Roscoe: You and Roscoe took your first flight together this month, and I'm very glad to say we all survived that experience. He's having a lot of fun with you exploring our new space and Dad and I feel very proud and excited to be entering this new chapter of life with both of you.
We know, Leo, that we have given you a pretty solid bump in your coolness factor over future brothers or sisters because you will be our only child who can say that "I'm from California".


  1. Aww, I love that he is your little CA boy! That is also adorable that he said "neigh" to your husband's comment! It seems like he pretty much knows what is up! :)

  2. I miss you guys so dang much! Sweet Leo, your CA family always has our doors open for a visit!
