Leyton has been "talking" alot more lately and randomly, but daily, saying mama and dada-if only he could associate us with the names-soon enough though. We are finally 100% back on Similac-no more gold formula for now-and doing well. Leyton has taken to his pacifier more-but it's really only a nightimeneccessity. He loves swinging outside in his swing at Granna's and he has recently been floor dancing. Anytime he hears the Wonder Pets theme song or his rabbit that he got for Easter from his Gran-Gran, he starts kicking his legs and gets really excited.

We first celebrated MeMaw's (Michael's Grandmother) 81st birthday. She absolutely loves babies and keeps telling us Leyton is too pretty to be a boy and she also kept telling us that he just needed to go home with her :)

On January 14th, my cousin had twin boys-Reid and Chase-and a few weekends later we went to visit them. Leyton was very interested in the new boys and wanted to touch them. When one of the boys started crying it scared Leyton (he'd never heard another baby/kid cry) and then he started crying-it was kinda funny but I also felt bad for him. It will be so fun to watch them (including Clara) grow up together!
Leyton and Reid-right before the crying began.
Leyton continues to eat his baby food-oatmeal, fruit and veggies- but has decided that squash is, by far, his favorite. He doesn't care for any juices, but loves water-especially out of a big person cup-we can't drink water with out giving him some. He has become more snuggly and cuddly and "hugs" (squeezes) us often. Strangers seam to make him weary-but he will slowly warm up to them as long as we are around. The Itsy Bitsy Spider and Old Mc Donald are his favorite nursery rhyme songs and Brown Bear Brown Bear is the book of the moment. Aside from the wooden spoon and 1/4 cup measuring cup, his favorite toys are a throw back fisher price musical tv, a see and say, a baby einstein muscial fish tank, a balloon, rubber blocks and foam bath letters (which are in his mouth constantly-in the tub and out). Peek-a-boo is a favorite game that never gets old as well as staring into the mirror and getting handprints all over it. The television usually consists of Wonder Pets (still), Bob the Builder and Baby Einstein DVD's. He absolutely LOVES to ride in the baby bjorn and go around the house touching and grabbing anything and everything. He has even helped me bake some cakes and cupcakes while in the bjorn.
He is still toothless but continues to drool constantly. He isn't sleeping through the night yet, BUT he is only waking up once to feed and goes back to sleep afterwards. The cats and Goldie (my Grandparents dog) intrigue him and he gets frustrated when they won't let him touch them. As soon as he sees them he smiles and begins "talking" to them (as seen in my previous blog). He is also sitting up on his own as is evident in the above picture. I can't believe that yet another month has gone by-we're having so much fun!!!
