Leo is growing much too fast, part of me just wants to stop time because I can't get enough of him these days. I love squeezing him and kissing his little cheeks as he just giggles non stop. I love his laugh, and the shape of his eyes.. and his eye color... every little detail about him is just so perfect. We are pretty smitten with each other. I cannot leave his sight or he cries.. day and night! Zoe has showed quite a bit of jealousy these last few weeks.. and I don't blame her, Leo does take up a big big chunk of my time and attention. I have to be very intentional about giving her one on one time. This morning she came in my room and said "toto is sad" (toto is her stuffed elephant) when I asked why, she said "he wants his mommy" :( Needless to say having two is complicated.. I always feel like I'm short changing one of them. Wishing I could be doing tons of messy projects with Zoe and also wishing I could just sit there and take a million pictures of Leo just sitting there.. contemplating wether or not to crawl. He doesn't seem quite ready to crawl just yet which I appreciate! because Zoe started too soon and next thing I knew much before her 1st bday she was walking.. my baby girl was a little girl. So Leo can take his time, plus it's a lot easier managing him when I know he can't go far. He got two teeth this month the two bottom ones, so far teething hasn't been traumatic but it also hasn't been a breeze like it was with Zoe, but he's a sweet baby and takes it very well. Funnily enough the same week Zoe is getting her last two molars he's getting his first two teeth. Let the teething begin again!

This month you got two teeth, and your first sickness/fever ever! we were lucky and no antibiotics needed just lots of non stop nursing and cuddling..whatever progress we had with your sleeping patterns is long gone! we back to square one.. I didn't think it was possible but you might be a worse sleeper than your sister, lucky for you I am smitten with you and even in the wee hours of the night I love holding you and cuddling you.. but your daddy is about ready for you to start sleeping thru the night so get on it please.
