Since my last monthly update was so complete (read: long) I'll try and keep this one brief. (Note from the future: it didn't work)
While we were in Pittsburgh Leo got to see the farm my dad grew up on when we had a family cookout there.

Currently our favorite game is filling in words in songs. I'll begin singing a song and I'll stop short and he will fill in the missing word. It's so cute; it melts me. Sometimes he will get silly and fill in "cup" for every word and that is also hilarious.

So I'll round out this post with a list of endangered words that he says in funny ways - and a couple that just make me smile. Oh, I never want to forget how cute his speech is right now!
|first tea party - a success despite sitting on table and guests|
- amos - vamonos
- althou - I love you
- oola - Leo
- booboo - blueberries
- papa - pizza (and pasta sometimes)
- papo - zapato
- hap - help
- pla-pla - hybrid of banana and platano
- oh-gurrr - yogurt (I can't quite capture this one in letters...)
- oopa - oops
- oh-oh - uh-oh
- tlula/tlu - Talula
- heh ju - Hey Jude
- huh - hug (with a throaty h)

Words he says rather well, but still make me smile:
- oh no!
And finally, finally - here is a video that shows our singing game (I'm expecting a call from American Idol any day now...) as well as "oola" for Leo and "althou" for I love you.
