Oh Leo, my sweet, full of energy, happy and a bit shy, truck loving boy, how can you already be TWO? Two years ago I had no idea what it meant to be the mom of a boy, I cannot tell you how much fun it is being your mom.
You are a "typical" boy in many ways, you love trucks, any and all trucks bring a smile and a squeal of excitement. When Georgia and I started asking you what kind of birthday you wanted you were certain, "truck birthday". We asked, dinosaur? airplane? rocketship? you just looked at us and said, "truck birthday". You and daddy saw a firetruck recently and the fireman offered to let you take a look inside, you immediately became shy and didn't want to. You are eagar to see new things but often become shy when meeting new people.
You love to snuggle, give hugs and kisses and at night as I rock you, I say, I love you Leo, you say, "thank you". Last night as I rocked you, you were holding a small bulldozer in one hand and your soft snugly blanket in another, a perfect balance of you.
I think your favorite activity is playing with Georgia, you idolize her and all that she does. That's not to say you don't stand up for yourself, you certainly know how to make your opinion known.
You love to play with household equipment just as much if not more than your toys. You literally cry when we put the vacuum away and would be perfectly content to play with it for hours.
Happy birthday Leo, I have loved watching you grow and learn about who you are over the past two years, I can't wait to see what adventures you'll have next.
We were ready for the kids to do some work!
Patiently waiting for his cake.

To fully appreciate how sweet and fun Leo is you have to see him in action. Here are a few videos from the last few months..

You idolize your big sister and love to do what she does. Georgia had decided to put on a performance for us, just after she started you came running out with an outfit for yourself...
