Leo – 6 months

Half a year…It has gone by amazingly quickly. Starting solids seemed so far away and here were are with a third baby eating. But let me back up and tell you about what Leo has been up to in the last month.

First – Leo finally got his first tooth. I think I see a second bottom tooth getting ready to pop out.P21

Second, and way less fun, he got his first tummy bug. Jack and I caught it next, then Gigi, then Audrey. He handled being sick like a champ though, and kept a smile on his face the whole time.IMG_1471

The third new thing in his little life was our first couple of nights away from each other. I had a quick trip to California and Leo stayed behind. So hard to be away from a nursing baby who still wakes in the middle of the night. Needless to say, we were both very happy to be reunited.P10

We have his 6 month check-up Tuesday for official stats and shots. He seems long so I am curious to see how much he has grown. He gets up into a crawl position and rocks, but he gets too excited and collapses to the ground to do a swimming motion.P19

We celebrated my birthday this weekend. Leo loved hearing Happy Birthday being sang. While he didn’t get to share in the dessert, he got his first taste of oatmeal. (It was a hit!) Kids are all so unique but I am going to try what I have before with foods, and keep my fingers crossed that Leo is as much of a pleasure to feed as his siblings. We’ll be sticking with what we have before will be a mix of baby oatmeal, a couple of purees of veggies, and mostly whatever food we are eating cut up so that he can feed himself. Jack and Audrey think that Leo being old enough to eat is hilarious!IMG_1582

Happy 6 months, sweet boy! We love you!IMG_1558
