We took Leo out last night and again today, and discovered along the way, that he loves slides!! Haha we have to hold him the whole way down, and up of course, but he loves it so much!

Tingting took Leo to go swim for the first time in about two weeks. It was almost as if he had never been there before. He seemed to hate the experience. The first couple times he went, he cried in the beginning, but always settled in quickly and had a good time. This time however, he just cried a lot. Has he forgotten that he’s been there before? Or has he changed… Read More

We celebrated her big 40 yesterday! It was great. I custom designed a nine piece heart shaped puzzle, and laser cut poems on each piece. Then I hid the pieces around the house and each one had a clue to help find the next one. The first piece was presented to her by Leo.

I swear Leo is checking out the menu, trying to decide what to order…. lol

Leo had a pretty good day, and we though we’d share a bit of it. 🙂

Tingting bought a kiddy fence online 2nd hand, then we repurposed a small area rug and a picnic mat, and it looks great! Leo seems to love it, and is moving all over that space on his own. He still mostly moves by rolling over, but he is able to push backwards, and with great effort, he can move forward about 4 inches at a time.

Spring is almost here. We took Leo out for a bit of fun yesterday, though he did not enjoy it as much as we did.
