Leo - 6 Months

This little man with his sometimes froggy and sometimes shy smile has totally taken my heart.  I'm a little cuckoo for this kid.  His giggles light up my world.   Leo keeps up a steady stream of baby babbles and loves to have conversations with people around him.

We had a nasty storm here last weekend and it knocked out power from Friday night through Monday night.  Our little Leo was a trooper through the hot craziness that ensued.  As my mom says, as long as I am with him for his milk supply he doesn't really care where he is or what's going on.  Even when his fine baby hair was drenched in sweat, he smiled and cooed and made the best of the situation.

Leo has started eating some baby food lately.  He's had sweet potato, avocado, squash, banana, pear and rice cereal mixed with apple sauce.  He wasn't quite sure about it at the beginning, but now really enjoys being put in his highchair and being fed.

Although I think, he's a strong (and very solid at around 17 pounds) baby, he's not much of a mover.  He can roll from tummy to back, but doesn't do it too often.  He can and does scootch around on his back and is working on lifting his hips off the ground on his tummy.   He can also sit up by himself if placed in that position.    

Leo also has a tooth!  I have no idea the technical name for the tooth, but it is what I refer to as a vampire tooth.  This little vampire prefers to grab hair rather than suck blood though.
