I'm on all fours. I'm moving my legs... how come I'm not going forward? Unh! Unh! Well at least I made it off that mat... oooh, a table leg! Edible? I intend to find out.
Step by (not-quite) step, Leo is learning to crawl. We only showed him a little how to do it. Mostly he is figuring it out on his own. It helps that with the warmer weather he can be barefoot now (better traction). Possibly he was inspired by the visit of elder cousin Danny this past weekend, who demonstrated the joys of running and jumping. In any case, once again, he seems to have become even more of a little boy and less of a big baby.

Our boy sure loves plates. Here he is munching away on a couple that survived his two uncles and me--but may not survive the Leo onslaught. Good thing we're not too sentimental about them. See a complete gallery of the evening's amusements here.

Hard to believe that we have had Leo with us for a whole six months now, but it's true. He's always had a presence, but every day he is becoming more a little boy. He laughs when we make funny noises. He reaches for objects hidden to the side and in back of him. He likes being part of the gang. He touches everything, and tries to put it in his mouth (we have figured out that his current religion is Chewish). He kicks up a storm in the bath. He giggles and squeals. He has an independent streak that is quite impressive in such a helpless little creature. In terms of locomotion, he can twist from his front to his back, and in circles clockwise and counterclockwise. Otherwise he just squirms a lot and whines for us to move him (which works, so, you could call it effective). In sum he is a joy. Hooray!
