Thanksgiving- a Day of Double Turkeys and Sleepless Nights!

Landon's Thanksgiving outfit

This Thanksgiving was extra special this year because it was Landon's first. He couldn't eat anything other than his pureed sweet potatoes and carrots, but I was so thankful that he was there with us sitting at the table this year. I told everyone that next year Landon gets dibs on a turkey leg. It will make the cutest picture seeing his little hands picking up a turkey leg and trying to eat it! Kevin, Landon, and I headed down to Keystone early Thursday morning to do Thanksgiving dinner (lunch) with his family and then headed back up to Jacksonville for dinner with my family. This was definitely the last year pulling a double dinner. It was a lot to take Landon back and forth. I guess we'll be hosting all holiday dinners for now on so that we can escape the hassle of double dinners. All of the Thanksgiving excitement threw Landon off schedule and he woke up for a midnight feeding and did not go back to bed until 2:30 a.m. I haven't had one of those nights in months! Of course I had to be up at 3:00 a.m. for Black Friday shopping so I got no sleep. It was worth it though. I finished Landon's Christmas shopping. I can not wait for Landon to open up his presents. I am so excited for Christmas morning.

He's grown sooo much . . . . .

Landon is 6 months, going on 7 real soon. He's started eating solids already. So far he's eating apples, pears, bananas, and sweet potatoes. He just started on his vegetables and he doing pretty good with them. He did pretty well with the green peas, but the carrots that was a different story. Let's just say he's no buggs bunny.

His teeth are coming in really well, alot more than expected. He sure does like to bite down on his momma when feeding. It's crazy how insanely happy he is all the time, kinda makes all our worries go away everytime i see him smile. He'll wake up in the morning laughing and just puts on this ridiculously huge smile from ear to ear when Amanda comes to get him. He really makes this whole parenting thing real easy...well i'll admit Amanda does like 98% of the work, but the 2% i get to do, i really really enjoy. it's funny watching him attack the spoon and try feeding himself. He'll start growling at me when the food doesn't come fast enough...literally growling, i think he learned that from Tink. Speaking of Tink, he loves her to death, he's always smiles and laughs when Tink is playing on the floor with him. He tries really hard to pet her, but sometimes he gets too anxious and will grab her hair. But since Tink is the best puppy/little big sister she just licks him like nothing happened.

Landon is starting his crawling phase, well it's more like dry humping the ground more than anything. He seems more interested in trying to stand up. My God help us when he starts walking, then running. I already told him that if he touches the xbox that IT'S ON LIKE DONKEY KONG !!!

Ok, i've said enough. One last thing...my baby is cooler than all of yours...get over it. :o)

Excited for the Holidays

So Kevin learned how to sign in and write blogs. As a result he wrote an incredible cute blog coming from Landon. Rest assured Landon did not eat any cake! Landon is still trying so hard to crawl. He gets up on all fours and rocks himself forward. He will then move one leg and fall down. I can't wait to see him crawl for the first time, but at the same time I can not believe that he is growing up so quickly. Half a year is already gone. Kevin and I started Christmas shopping for Landon. We are so excited for Christmas this year. It will be so much fun watching Landon trying to open up his presents and playing with the wrapping paper more than his toys! We are getting his Christmas pictures done next week. I hope they turn out well. It took two sessions to get his Halloween pictures done because he was cranky and did not like the woman who was taking the pictures. I will post some pics once we get them. We are also looking forward to Thanksgiving. I pureed some pumpkin for Landon to eat on Thanksgiving and he will also have some sweet potatoes. I am so thankful that Landon is in our lives this year. He brings so much joy and happiness to our lives. The holidays will definitely be much brighter this year.

While Amanda was sleeping

ok ok...so this blog comes from Landon.

Well so far i've played in my swing, with my teething rings and on my daddy's face. I like watching him squirm to my every move and sound, he knows mommy needed to nap. I almost got this crawling thing down, but no worries if i really want to move, all i have to do ia cry and someone will get me !!! Oh and I got my two bottom teeth coming in...mommy says they'll be the end of her...whatever that means.

I'm refusing to take a nap today, daddy is here to entertain me and he's got some dirty diapers coming his way. LOL Besides so far today i've gotten to play with all my toys, try some cake, and listen to music.

Well bye everyone, i'm thinking i should nap now.

6 Month Check Up

Landon had his 6 month check up today. He is now 20 lbs 4 oz and 28 inches long. He only put on a few ounces, but grew another full inch! At this rate he will be taller than me by the time he is 3! Landon also received 5 shots today...poor baby. On top of that he also got his second bottom tooth in today. He seems to be in no pain from any of it. He's such a trooper. Landon is beckoning me for his final feeding so it's time to close the computer and stop blogging.

Eagles' Youngest Fan

Last night Landon and I watched the Eagles game. To our dismay the Eagles lost, but Landon looked so adorable in his Eagles outfit that I just have to post a picture.
Nothing much has really happened this past week. Landon got up bright and early this morning...he rose before the sun. I am hoping it is just because he is teething and not a new trend he is starting. He has been really clingy the past two days. I haven't even been able to put him down on the changing table without him crying. Once he leaves my arms he starts screaming. I am so glad that Kevin is off tomorrow...my arms could use a break! Landon is now eating sweet potatoes. Kevin and I spent an evening last week peeling, steaming, pureeing, and freezing different foods for Landon. It took us about two hours, but now we have a month's worth of bananas, apples, pears, and sweet potatoes for him. I am so glad that we took the time to make his baby food. It was so cheap and easy to do and now he won't have to eat commercial baby foods that are filled with preservatives. He loves to eat the bananas and sweet potatoes. Next week we will probably start him out on apples. I sure hope Landon does not become a picky eater.

Halloween Fun

The computer had been broken for a few weeks, but all is fixed now. We took Landon down to Keystone for a few days for Halloween and to visit with Kevin's parents. We carved pumpkins and took him trick-or-treating. Landon was a monkey and Tinkerbell was a banana...it was the cutest thing! We walked around Keystone and everyone loved him...how could you not?! Landon got us a lot of candy! We also ran in to some old friends which was nice and of course no visit to Keystone is complete without a trip to Johnny's! Last week Landon had his first tooth break through his gum line. He has not been as fussy as I was expecting him to be. It does not seem to bother him that much. He is also sitting up on his own, no longer balancing himself on his hands. He is getting so big and growing up too quickly. He'll be 6 months old in just two days! Landon has his 6 month check up next week so I will be posting new updates then.
