What would you say if you meet a local celebrity?
We have had a lot of fun recently. Leo's new Dutch girlfriend Stella came to visit all the way from the Netherlands. Martin's sister and brother-in-law visited and Leo REALLY liked Stella. When she first came to our house, Leo was running around like crazy trying to show off. It was really cute, even though he was very wild. The toddlers really hit it off, despite the language barrier. The duo chatted about Monkeys (aapy in Dutch), milk and choo choos.
On Saturday, we visited the local Fred Meyer to meet the Blazer's very own Martell Webster. Leo was excited to make his acquaintance and when it was our turn to meet him, Leo opened the conversation by talking about Thomas the Tank Engine. Luckily, Martell expressed interest and said that he also liked Thomas. Martell couldn't have been nicer. The following day, when Joe was watching a Blazer's game. Leo kept pointing to the tv and saying, "Martell!"
Leo got his first freckle! It is on the back of his left upper leg and it is so cute! Until this point, Leo has had perfectly clear, white skin with no marks at all.
Leo continues to get a better and better grasp of language. I am fairly certain that he can understand most of what we say to him and he is stringing together words non-stop. He also is starting to say some words clear as a bell such as "Thomas."
On a side note, I was offered a permanent position at Williams Sonoma. Yeah! I will probably work 10-15 hours a week. I love making a bit of cash and meeting new people. Also, we don't have to pay for childcare, so all the money I make can go into savings. I am so excited.
