"Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause." - St. John Kanty

Leo had his first sleepover at Meme and Grandpa's house. Of course, he slept very well. He made a liar out of me. I can't complain because I slept well too. Also, we might get an offer for a sleepover again!

Leo is eating fruit every night and is doing pretty well with it. He is also very computer savvy. It's modern child labor.

Today, Leo and I are enjoying time with his Aunts.

The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis. -Dante Alighieri

I just finished Dante's 'Inferno' and I am surprised at it's readability. I enjoyed it very much. It was possible for him to come up with such creatively terrible punishments by adding people he knew in some of the levels of hell. Hmmmm.

It took me a day to finish. Jodi Piccoult's 'The Tenth Circle.' Her books do not disappoint. I am almost finished 'Handle with Care,'this is probably my favorite!

On the home front, Leo is sitting up on his own. He is still not interested in sleeping through the night. It's a good thing he's so cute.

To bring up a child in the way he should go, travel that way yourselfonce in a while. ~Josh Billings

Last weekend was our first overnight without Leo. We went to Lake Placid on Friday night and came home Saturday evening. We had a wonderful time. I was nervous to leave at first. My nervousness dissipated when Luke took me to "Milano's."  Even though we were "getting away" most of our conversations revolved around Leo.

So after our dessert we walked around Main Street which was decorated for Christmas.

On Saturday, Leo went to a NYSCOBA Christmas party with Lexie and he was a hit.  I was told by a co-worker he had a longer line than Santa.

God Walks Among the Pots and Pans. -St. Theresa of Avila

Leo had his six month appointment this week.  He is a whopping 19ibs.  He is 26.50 inches long.  It has been a long week, it seems it after having a shorter week for Thanksgiving.

I'm looking forward to this Sunday, which will include baking, baking and more baking.  I love baking during this time of year, especially before Christmas.  It is even more enjoyable with my little helpers.
