Leo @ 22 months * Gus @ 2 months
|Being sneaky already!|
Things are going just dandy here. Boys are growing and growing!
Leo continues to be a chatter box. Yesterday he said to me: "I missed you mommy."
It melted my heart. He also said: "I miss daddy too."
He is still all about baby brother ... and Thomas the Train ... and coloring! He also likes Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (see singing below).
The warm weather means trips to the local park's splash pad, which he loves. Can't believe he'll be two pretty soon. How time flies!
Gus is a big boy and is hitting his milestones just like he should. Yesterday at his two month check up, he weighed 13 lbs 9 oz, and is 23-3/4" long. 80th percentile for weight and height! 95th for head! Comparatively, Leo was 11 lbs and 23" long at 2 months old.
We've determined that Leo likely got tiny "Masse" genes and Gus got big "Nemec" genes. It is already time to pack up the 3 month clothes and see what works from Leo's 6 month stash (it was January when Leo was in 6 month clothes!!).
Gus has lots of smiles for everyone. He is very strong. And, he'll be going to daycare with Leo in two and half weeks when mom goes back to work (*tear tear sniff sniff*).
Mom and dad are doing well too! We divide and conquer so everything is under control. And thankfully, we have lots of help from Grandma and Papa so we even get to go to dinner or a movie every now and again.
We are looking forward to summer. Leo will be taking swimming lessons so that will be fun! No big vacay plans but still plenty of fun and family time.
Here are some photos!

|First family photo! Easter 2012|
Well, hello there! It's May!!
Leo is 21 months old and Gus is 1 month old.
Boy oh boy, did that go fast!
Gus @ 1 month:
Weight: 10 lbs 5 oz
Length: 22 inches
He's a big boy!
Gained four pounds since
his first pediatrician visit.
He's a great nurser!
Right now, he eats and sleeps a lot
but he's becoming more and more
We are working on sleeping still :)
He sleeps great when mom or dad
holds him :)
Starting to smile
and can hold up his head.
Still has dark hair, perhaps
taking after mom??
Was baptized this past Sunday
(see post below for the photo book)
and it was a very nice day
Leo @ 21 months:
He loves being a big brother!
Loves to kiss, hug and pat Gus!
Is very proud when Gus
visits him at daycare.
Leo's speech is top notch!
Likes to help with everything.
Takes things off the shelf, hands it to you and says "thank you".
He speaks in sentences more
and more each day.
Some recent sentences:
"I dress like Daddy."
(when he was dressed up for Gus' christening)
"I need/want more veggies/milk/chips."
"I fall down."
"Oh Toby!" (He LOVES Thomas & Friends!)
"Drink of water."
(and then "fresh drink of water."... and he watches to make sure
you fill it up fresh at the bathroom sink).
"I like the moon song."
"Grandma made that." (when pointing to the homemade giraffe in his room)
Leo is very fun and funny right now.
Always makes us chuckle.
Loves bubbles and bath.
Doesn't want to use the toilet but likes to sit by Mom and Dad
when we do, so he can flush the toilet.
Is into giving and asking for hugs
right now, which mommy loves :D
