Leo - Two and a half

Nicknames: LeeLee and WeeWhoa, but we often call you Leo John as well.

Clothes: 24mth/2T, 6 shoe, 5 diapers
Sleep:  You're a great sleeper although you've been putting up some nap fights. You pretty much nap 3/4 times a week but regardless, you go into your crib from 1:30-3:30.

7:30am: up - and if you're not, I wake up you (in order to help avoid some of our napping issues)
8:00am Breakfast-  we go right to breakfast now and you have your milk in your sippy cup.
9-12am play
11:30am/12pmish- lunch
1:30 pm nap
3:30pm up/play/snack
6:00pm dinner with a cup of milk
7:30 pm  bed

Health: You are a healthy boy and we are beyond thankful for that.

Crying: When you don't get your way or if something isn't the way it usually is (like a broken breakfast bar).
Feeding:  You are a bit picky but overall a good eater. You still don't love meat, but I sneak it in here and there and you get lots of protein from other places so I'm not too worried. You love breakfast bars, cheese sticks, pirates booty, oatmeal, raisins, quesadillas and guacamole!

Likes: Right now you are really into The Lion Guard and love playing with the busy box we bought you at Barnes and Noble. There is a big landscape mat and you love moving all of the "guys" around the pridelands.

You love puzzles, you love books, you love running, you love Roro, being chased, watching The Lion Guard or Chuggington, playing games and going to school.
Not Liking: See above.

Milestones: Well, you're like the smartest kid I know ;) You talk exceptionally well, we never have a problem communicating, and sometimes you pull together sentences that honestly blow me away. You know so much more than I even think you know. Your verbal skills are incredible.

You know all of your colors, can count to about 3, and then everything else is 5, love to sing songs (current favorites are The Itsy Bitsy Spider and The Wheels on the Bus). You are showing some interest in learning your ABCs. You have a great memory and have been enjoying playing memory and matching games these last few months.

You are also fantastic with art, coloring, fine motor skills like playing with stickers, and really enjoy painting and art projects. I'm always impressed with you at school because you seem to have a great attention span and happily listen to the teacher during short lessons and then proceed to follow the instructions.

Your next milestone that we will tackle soon is potty training. You are showing some readiness signs, but I need to have a handle on life a little more before we throw another curve ball my way.

You also became a BIG BROTHER! You are the sweetest, most gentle, and caring little guy. You have shown sweet interest in Drew and always like to know where she's at or what she is doing. Her loud screams don't seem to bother you too much and for the most part, you've taken to sharing the spotlight really well.
Places You’ve Gone: We've been homebound this season more than you or I would like but we are so thankful for our big basement and having lots of family nearby!
