I was showing Leo some new weird Japanese mushrooms that I had bought. He picked up the package, scrutinized it, sniffed it, and said, "Organic mushrooms?". I said, "how did you know they were organic? Can you read that?" He said, "because they smell like poop!"

Poop in your blood

I was lying on the couch when Leo jumped on the couch, stuck his butt in my face and announced, "I farted in your face!"

I said, "That's disgusting! the next time I fart, I'm going to fart in YOUR face".

To which he replied, "I'm going to poop in your face!"

I'm going to poop in your ear!

I'm going to poop in your eyeball!

I'm going to poop in your mouth!

I'm going to poop all over your body!

I'm going to poop in your belly button!

Then he got me, "I'm going to poop in your BLOOD!"

Weird as soup with raw eggs

I couldn't get the top of Leo's sippy cup open. I asked Paul to do it. Leo said he could do it so I gave it to him. To our surprise he opened it.
Paul said, "Wow you're stronger than Mommy"

I said "shut up"

Leo defended me, saying, "Well you're just a weird little Daddy. As weird as soup with egg, with raw eggs."

We were in the hotel room, about to hang the Do Not Disturb sign which had a cartoon of a guy sleeping in bed.
Leo said, "You have to hang up this sign. Its pretty important. It says not to sleep upside down. Look, it's a person sleeping upside down under the bed." He was holding the sign upside down.

Octopus at the aquarium

We had a great time at the aquarium last Friday. They feed this octopus
shrimp in a yellow duckie. The octopus was all over the yellow duckie when
we were there, flipping it around, and trying to suck the food out of it.

Leo has been practicing his letters with Juliana. We didn't realize ow much he had been practicing til he sat down one night and starting writing his ABCs, in order, and with great penmanship! He got up to J, I think, before he got frustrated with his backwards "J" and decided to find another "game".

Leo's life in Hawaii

Leo doesn't go down easy these days. It's nearly 9:30 and he's still running into my room every 5 minutes. He said, "I thought Blues Clues said I could do anything I want to do". Yes, as long as you sleep at night. Here's some picture of Leo's life in Hawaii:

Leo got an ant farm from his friend Annika, I think. We sit it on the kitchen table. It's like watching TV while you eat. It's incredibly fascinating. I could stare at these ants all day.

Leo and Paul went for a hike and it rained on them. They hiked through deep, slippery mud. It got pretty cold too. Leo became "Spit Beard the Mud Puppy" that day.

I think this is Leo at the zoo. Juliana, his nanny, takes him out on adventures all over town.

The trees are incredible here. They walk, they enfold you.

Leo at the beach. This was up at Kuilima Cove, which turned out to be an excellent snorkeling adventure. We saw cuttlefish here.

Another hike, just up the hill from our home.
