Landon has a new obsession with pushing things around. He carried the broom into his bedroom the other day and even pushed a box out of his room to the living room. He used the box as a stool so he could try to climb into his jumper.

Jenn and I at the Nickelback concert
Even though Landon has stopped putting effort into walking and talking he has learned a few things. He can sign hungry when he is truly hungry and not just wanting a snack and he can also sign all done if he is finished with his meal. The other week he had crawled down from the couch in the middle of his last feeding and went and stood next to the trashcan. He looked at me and waved for me to come over to him and then signed that he was hungry! He thought I was going to go to him- it was really cute and gave Kevin and I plenty of laughs. Landon has also learned how to brush his hair and his teeth. We had not taught him these things, but I guess he's seen us do it to him enough that he has picked up on it. He will pull his hair brush out of his basket and brush his hair and he will also pull his toothbrush out and brush his teeth. As odd as it sounds his tube of tooth paste is one of his comfort items. He crawls around with is everywhere and even took a nap while holding it the other day, who knows, maybe he is meant to become a dentist!
Yesterday I was putting a load of laundry into the washer and Landon went into his bedroom to play. I thought he was going to play with his piano or rocking horse, but he had other ideas. When I finished loading the washer I realized that Landon was being really quiet- never a good thing! I walk into his room and soon discovered why. He had pulled all of his q-tips (all 300 of them) out of their container and was playing with them all over the floor. When I walked in he shot me the biggest smile! He had so much fun with those darn q-tips that I had to take pictures of it.
Landon just woke from his nap so I must get off of here and go tend to him. I will post more updates soon.

Kevin and I took turns catching up on sleep as well. Kevin was in charge of keeping an eye on Landon while I prepared lunch and this was the end result! I guess Landon tired Daddy out!
After our naps I took Landon outside so he could jump in his jumper and I caught up on some reading. We both got our daily dose of vitamin D in.
Here are a few other random pictures of Landon from this weekend. Landon was playing around in a chair that I had pulled out and had a lot of fun doing so.
Landon has also been snorting or sniffing at us lately. He does it when he is really happy or when he doesn't like something that we have said to him. I guess the expression works for every emotion! This is what it looks like:
I am hoping that we have many more relaxing weekends like this, but I know that they are hard to come upon. These next few weekends will be spent getting ready for Landon's birthday party. We still have to pick up a few more party decorations and the food. I am also hoping to have a yard sale in two weeks to clear out all of his old clothes and toys to make room for the new.

Landon with the Easter Bunny
This morning when Landon woke up we showed him his Easter basket. I think he noticed the apple wheels right away and could probably care less about the rest of the stuff! We met up with Kevin's family in Orange Park and ate breakfast at Golden Corral. Landon ate so much food. He especially loved the ham and sausage. Landon received two more Easter baskets from his grandparents and Aunt Keyko. We then walked around Wal-mart to spend some more time together before heading to my mom's for Easter dinner.
At my mom's Landon got yet another Easter basket (4 total). I can't imagine what his baskets will look like next year when he can have a little bit of candy. And again we all stuffed ourselves full and Landon ate more ham. After dinner we went outside and took a bunch of family photos.

Landon is 11 months old as of yesterday. I cannot believe how quickly time is flying by. I know I say it every month, but it continues to amaze me. So far Landon has had no new milestones. He is still not walking or talking, but is getting closer every day. Today was the first day that he learned how to turn his walking toy around when he gets stuck on a piece of furniture or runs into a wall. It makes it easier on me...I don't have to continuously follow behind him. He is also wanting to walk everywhere (with our help of course). Landon has also learned to flash his adorable smile whenever we tell him no. Kevin and I just wind up laughing at him and he is no longer in trouble. We're going to have to learn to "toughen" up before he really starts getting into trouble. I take Landon's picture next to his large Pooh Bear every month, but yesterday he was wanting to stand up for the pictures. It was the hardest time that I have had taken his picture to date. I was able to get a few ok shots of him though.
