A lot of people make the comment, "Leo looks like such a happy baby in your pictures. Does he ever cry?"
The answer is YES! Here are the things that set him off:
- When mommy or daddy leave the room
- When he wants to be carried but we put him down
- When his push toy runs into a chair, wall or person
- When he's carrying a dish towel while crawling and it gets caught under his leg
- When its naptime and he doesn't want to sleep
- When the food doesn't come fast enough
- And as demonstrated here in this video, when he can't get his hat on his head:

Leo and his friend John attended their first rock concert this week. Now they can tell their friends they've seen Bon Jovi. Actually, it was a Bon Jovi cover band--Slippery When Wet. But I'm pretty sure they didn't know the difference.
Jamming to my favorite song before the show:
You know you're getting older when you're holding a sippy cup instead of a beer.
Simciks love Slippery When Wet!
"Yeah, Bon Jovi!"

Crowd: "Leo, where is dada?"
Leo turns around and points to Frank.
The crowd goes wild.
Crowd: "Leo, where is mama?"
So he did this dada thing for about a week but no mama.
But since he's a guy who does major things on holidays, he had a big surprise in mind for me.
On Mother's Day while I was sitting at the computer and he was playing at my feet, he pulled up on my chair, pointed at me and said very clearly and deliberately, "MAMA." I cried. I ran to the baby book and jotted it down. And he's been saying it ever since. He just points at me and says "mama" over and over again. I love it!
I haven't captured it on video but here are a few pics from our mother's day picnic:
Pointing at his mama:
Future basketball player?
With some chick he picked up in the park:
Standing and eating! So coordinated!
I love his face here! It's like "What are you lookin' at?"
