Sophia loved him from the moment she met him. She ran into our room and yelled, "baby!!!!". She has been hooked ever since. She calls him Yeo or Baby Bruder. She was very disappointed when Paul took her to go to bed for the night, but she was very excited when we all went home on Sunday.
Our new little family.

Leo was named for Saint Leo the Great who was pope when Attila the Hun attacked Rome in 452 A.D. The Emperor and his army had fled the city and the people were crying for help. Pope Leo stood with a few deacons as he met Attila at the Milvan bridge north of Rome. Attila turned back with the promise of tribute from the city. When asked by his advisors why he let the richest prize of a city go, he said that Pope Leo was flanked by giants of heaven, St. Peter and St. Paul patrons of Rome leading the armies of heaven and he fell back in awe. St. Leo was named a Doctor of the Church in 1744 by Pope Benedict XIV. Pray for us St. Leo the Great!
