Alright, I'm done with this...
The biggest change Leo made during 10 months was climbing.
It began by finding out he could get on top of the lincoln log bin.
Then the playroom couch.
The trunk in the kids' room
And the next morning, Dorothea's bed.
He is so proud of himself when he climbs up something. He can get on some other couches in the house if someone is sitting there and he can grab on to their leg and scramble up.
In addition to climbing it seems he might be getting ready to head towards walking.
He'll stand solo for up to 10 or 15 seconds before plopping down on his tush.
As far as eating, we try to just share whatever we have with him. He loves tomatoes, cheese and rice more than most other things. He's not really that excited by fruit yet and that makes breakfast more difficult, which is how Henry was (sans bananas) except Henry hated most food now that I think about it... Leo's favorite way to eat his food, however, is throwing it down then signing 'all done' and eating it off the floor. I know, I should prevent this somehow. But. Third child.
He still throws a fit to go outside any time anyone else is outside. Whenever he hears my brother come in he knows he's going to the back yard to work on his garden and positions himself to the side of the door in hopes of sneaking out. It's pretty funny.
But since he still puts everything in his mouth and isn't walking, he doesn't get to go out as much as the other two since I'll have work to do while they're outside. I still take him out daily though and while he use to love swinging, he'll now do it for about five minutes and then insist on getting out to play somewhere else and after about 15-20 minutes of keeping him out of trouble, I'm ready to take him in.
And that's Leo at 10 months!
