Speaking of which, we decided to head down to AZ for an extended stay to keep Leo (and me!) out of the cold for as long as we can. We'll be there from Tuesday until January. (No. I'm not kidding.)

Also, the other day I was trying to look through the mail and Leo kept grabbing it. I gave him a page of the adds to keep him occupied and when I looked down a few minutes later this is what I saw. (If you blow it up you can see a little black mustache. Sick, huh?)

Leo has been such a stinker about going to sleep lately. He absolutely refuses to take a nap and just runs a hundred miles an hour until he is so cranky he can't stand it. Then we can usually trick him into falling asleep for a little while.
Last Sunday he kept falling asleep and then waking up as soon as I set him down. I finally laid down with him and just rolled him off of me once he was out. Then he slept so long we had to wake him up so he wouldn't be up all night.
He falls asleep on Ty a lot. Probably because Ty just lets him cry himself out.
Lately Leo just can't get enough of looking at his hands. Half the time he looks like he's trying to fight you. He's getting pretty good at picking stuff up and, of course, puts everything he can get a hold of into his mouth.
Last night we had stuffed pumpkin for dinner and we let Leo feel the guts before we threw them out. He actually seemed to think they were pretty cool. And he thinks pumpkin seeds are pretty tasty too. (Don't worry Raygon, we only gave him a little taste!)
I don't remember when this was, a few weeks ago maybe? Ty got Leo dressed and he put him in these newborn pajamas that he's never worn before. They were way too small and Leo ended up looking like a little cheerleader. (Short shorts, bare midriff, writing on the buns. . .) And of course we didn't take him out of it. We just spent all afternoon laughing at him. (I know, we're mean.)
Looks good, huh? It really isn't. I mean, they tasted okay, but they were a little too dry for my taste. They did however, end up tasting slightly salty. Unexpected, but not a bad combo. Next time I'll just use more oil or something.
So I washed the lion costume (According to the manufacturers instructions) and Lion's mane turned into an afro. Interesting fashion statement Lion. Very interesting.

I know it doesn't look like much, but it is pure mango, chicken, rice deliciousness! It's filled with good stuff like onions, cilantro and lime which gives it a homemade salsa flavor. Yummy! And it was so easy. (If you want the actual recipe you can find it here. I'm too lazy to type it out right now.) Thank you We Heart Food for making all of my (mango, chicken, rice) dreams come true!
I have some Leo updates too, but I'm on the laptop right now and don't have access to my pictures. Maybe tomorrow.
