The Year of the Rabbit celebration came and went a few weeks ago, and our little Leo turned a year older…now he’s three! “Snuggly Leo” was featured on the LWB blog last fall and has not yet found his own family to snuggle with. It’s hard to imagine who could resist his innocent little face, especially when it’s framed by a puppy-ears hood!
From our reports, it sounds like Leo is very aware of his and others’ emotions. He understands his nannies’ words and easily expresses his different emotions with simple sentences. Leo loves music and will move his body to the rhythm of the music. Every day he does morning exercises with the older kids in the orphanage, although the nannies don’t like him to do too much strenuous exercise due to his heart condition.
Although we’re not sure anyone could bundle little Leo up like the nannies in LiShui, we think his sweet, expressive face is just calling out for parents of his own to love and care for him. We truly hope he’ll get that chance before the Year of the Dragon arrives!
