Leo is Two

Our Leo is two!  It's like overnight my little baby became a toddler.  I'm exhausted most of the time trying to keep up with him, but absolutely love this age.  He's makes us laugh so hard on a daily basis with his new words, faces, dances, and big personality.  He takes it all in and doesn't miss a thing.  Just before age two…he started having more opinions about things.  What he ate for meals, what socks he wants to wear…and of course the word "no" became the main staple in his vocabulary.  He's become extra snuggly lately and loves to cozy up on the couch with mommy on these cold days. He's Daddy's number one fan and belly laughs at all of Daddy's silly faces and songs. He loves people, fun, life, laughing and learning which is such a blessing.

After months of not sleeping as a baby…he's now a champion sleeper with a 3 hour nap from 1-4 and sleeps 8:00 PM to 8:00 AM on most nights.  I'm praying fervently this sleep situation continues and his baby sister (due next month) will magically be a much better sleeper from the start.  That will happen, right?

Most recently, Leo learned the word "Cheers!" and loves to toast anyone who has a drink at the same time he does, or really any food at the same time or even toys may get a "Chuus!" as well.  Hi-larious. He's a big song lover and will say and sign "more" if a song on a commercial catches his ear.  It's tough to explain that songs on the radio can't be rewound like the DVR or a CD and tears may ensue.
