Los Angeles, California:¬†Dave and I left my college roommate and her daughter with the keys to the castle (and the Honda) and flew down to Los Angeles this afternoon. Leo is having a birthday tomorrow. Doesn’t time travel at warp-speed when a baby in involved? As of tomorrow, I will no longer refer to Leo as a baby. Leo will be two years old. He sleeps in a Big Boy Bed and no longer wears nappies. He will now be referred to as “The Cutest BOY Ever”.

Please remind me, because I still sometimes refer to Lisa as my “baby”.

New grandparents – August 2011

Didn’t we pose for these photos about twenty minutes ago?

As long as I am showing “old” photographs – here is a photo of Leo’s Mama, blowing out the candles on her 2nd birthday cake:

August 1983

Lenny thinks if they dyed Leo’s hair brunette, Lisa and Leo could be twins.

Oh, those adorable little hand-smocked, hand-embroidered dresses from The Philippines… and, oh, those curls.

We played with Leo this afternoon and also went to the park with a group of his pals for a play-date.

Lenny’s parents arrived this afternoon as well. Lisa and Lenny prepared a gourmet meal and both families gathered for dinner. Marinated flank steak (grilled perfectly by Lenn), tossed greens and a tomato tart. Our Girl is a wonderful cook.

A wonderful day with our wonderful family.

Until my next update, I remain, your “Leo will be 2 tomorrow” correspondent.
