The Daily Leo

Getting our Christmas Tree!  Leo doesn’t really know what all this Christmas-ing is all about, but he knows about Abigail’s Christmas Tree, so that’s a start.  We went down to our local nursery to get a fine pure-bred Colorado tree.  It’s beautiful!  And, we got a Frosty ornament.  Leo’s favorite song right now is Frosty the Snowman, you can see him here singing Frosty the Snowman to a Frosty ornament.

Here’s Leo fooling around with my knitting.  He doesn’t USUALLY destroy everything I’ve been working on, but it has happened…

15 months, we have been working on transitioning Leo to 1 nap a day, and it’s not been quite as easy as you might think.  Apparently, it takes a while for the baby to sleep longer at the one nap instead of taking two.  We thought we were in good shape yesterday, Leo napped after lunch for 3 hours!  He did that last weekend on Saturday too, only to not nap at all on Sunday.  Brutal.  This Sunday was a little better, but he woke up after 1-1/2 hours, and he could have easily slept another hour.  He was in a rotten mood!  Here he is being sassy.

11-1/2 months, Leo is pretty good at going from standing to sitting smoothly, but it takes a few tries, as you can see in this video.
