Spring Break

Jack had Spring Break last week, so we took Leo on his first camping trip to Sherling Lake. We camped in our little trailer (Big Red) and took our kayaks out on the lake. It was Leo's first kayaking too! Apparently, he found it relaxing to be out on the water, because he promptly fell asleep!

Life vest? Check.
Sunscreen? Check.
Binky? Check.

We had a great time at the lake, sitting around our nightly campfires, and playing cards inside the trailer when it was chilly outside. Even though the trees haven't started leafing out just yet, the campground and lake were beautiful. I love the Spanish Moss that hangs down from the trees-- it's exactly how I always pictured the South.

Smiley Face

Leo is such a happy baby, and he has been particularly smiley the last few weeks. Jack and I have been on a quest to capture these adorable smiles on camera. What a cutie!

Chubby Cheeks and Fuzzy Hair

Leo is growing so fast, and changing every day. Last week his cheeks got really chubby and he grew a double chin. This week, he's sprouting new hair. His head is covered in a layer of fuzzy dark hair. His original hairs (the long ones) protrude from the crown of his head, poking out from all the fuzzy new stuff. It is so cute!
Leo is also smiling more and more. Especially when he wakes up from a nap. As soon as he sees me coming into his room he gets a huge grin on his face, and it's enough to melt my heart! I am forced to pick him up, and smother him with kisses from the top of his fuzzy head, to each of his chubby little cheeks. I adore him.
Leo will be 2 months old tomorrow. I can hardly believe it. Jack and I can't imagine life without him. He is such a joy, and we thank God for him everyday. We are so blessed.
