Leonard turns 2!

My Baby is 2!

I am utterly smitten with this kid. I don't know exactly what it is about him, but he makes my heart melt.

He loves to give hugs and kisses and he always wants you to look him in the eyes when he is talking to you. If you are not looking at him he will grab your chin and force you to look at him. He is all boy. He loves to wrestle. He likes to point his finger on one hand and hold it with the other like a gun then he does this weird growl and pokes at you. He loves tractors and trucks, infact we spent a porting of his birthday just watching some tractors excavating the land for new construction. Leonard loves electronics. I think he can operate David's I phone better than I can. His newest hobby is climbing on the arm of the couch and then jumping off of it back on to the couch cushions. He gets a great big proud smile as he stands up and prepares to jump.

He is also unbelievably smart. He recognizes all of his letters and numbers 1-8. He knows his colors and his shapes. He is also talking really well, infact he can imitate almost any word you tell him to and he is starting to to put together 3 and 4 word sentences.

I think one of things that really gets me about Leonard is how genuinely happy he is to see you. He gets super excited and does this really cute in take of air to show how excited he is. Every time he sees Evelyn after they have been apart for even a short period of time he gets a huge smile and says "HI EWIN" extremely enthusiastic.

I love to watch them interact. Leonard has so much admiration for Evelyn and when she is in the right mood they will play pretend with each other for hours.
Now if only I could make that happen more often :)

Happy Birthday Leonard!
We Love You More and More Each Day!
