My 365: Taking Pictures of Toddlers

I know several of my posts have been Leo-centric over the past few days ... sorry about that.  It's just that he's available, he's cute, and he can usually be cajoled into getting his picture taken (not easily, mind you -- he is a toddler, after all.  More on this subject below).
