Little Duck.

We usually feed Landon dinner in just a diaper. He won't wear a bib anymore and I hate to stain his clothes. After dinner I put some baby legs on him so he could crawl around and his little knees wouldn't get so red. Well after playing for a little while, he crawled over to me and his little hands were freezing! I felt bad and thought he must be cold so I went and grabbed his bath robe and put it on him. Hence the lovely outfit below... :)

I couldn't help but take a few pictures.

speed crawling towards me :)

He still loves his swing too. I took a picture of him yesterday in it and compared it to one of him on Halloween 2009.

Where's Landon?

Landon loves to play Peek-A-Boo!! He's started to move the towel himself now. It's quite cute.

Landon is EIGHT MONTHS OLD today!! Wow! He is now speed crawling all over the place and pulling up on EVERYTHING! He loves to laugh and smile and play! He plays so well by himself with all of his toys.

He will eat about any kind of baby food we feed him and is great with eating snacks with his fingers. His favorite snacks are veggie puffs and mum mums. He can grab things REALLY well and shove them right into his mouth! He even does the pinch grab. He still loves drinking out of a straw and is really good at it now. He can stand for a few seconds by himself but will quickly sit down when he starts to loose his balance. His favorite word to babble is still ByeByeByeByeBye! We are working on Mama! And trying to get him to say Dada more often...although he did say Dada on father's day a few times for Chad :) He loves the grass and the outdoors. He likes to watch the puppies and the big tractors at Grandma's house. Such a boy :) He will stand at the front door and just look out with a big 'ol grin on his face. He LOVES Haley. I don't think I can express in words how much he loves her. Every time he sees her he laughs. In the mornings she is who he looks for when he first wakes up. If you just say, 'where's Haley girl?' He'll look around and laugh.

He's started to stay up later (used to go to bed around 6:30 and now he's been going to bed closer to 7:30 or 8). I don't think he wants to stop playing. He still takes 2 naps a day (usually). He knows the word 'No!' ........haha. Yes, we have already had to say this SEVERAL times. We've had to say this a lot when he wants to play with the vents on the floor (one of his favorite things to mess with). I'm sure I'm forgetting a few things but basically I can sum this up by saying HE IS SO MUCH FUN RIGHT NOW!!! I LOVE spending time with him and learning his personality. Chad and I are some VERY lucky parents to have such a healthy, happy little boy!!!!!!! Thank you, Lord - We are so blessed!!

Now onto the 8 month pictures........they were a little hard this month seeing as he is very mobile right now. He did not want to sit still AT ALL. We also lowered the crib all the way down because he stands up in his crib a lot now. I was finally able to get a decent shot...

8 Months Old!

Here are what the majority of the shots looked like...

Look how much he has changed!

I realized I can't keep up with a 9 year old on the slip and slide - yes I am still sore...

Big Day!

Landon had a big day today. We played in a big Sophie pool! He almost loved the grass more than the water.

He took his first bath in the kitchen sink.

He bonded some more with Haley. She loves him. He loves her. They will be best friends.

Haley even taught Landon how to beg for food from Daddy.


We did a little shopping. Landon tried to grab EVERYTHING on the aisle at the grocery store, and therefore fell over in the shopping cart and got a BooBoo! It was one of those cries where no sound came out for a whole minute. Poor little man now has two red bumps next to his right eye.

not a great pic of the little guy but you can see his boo boo here.

there's that smile!

But then he got to come home and eat dinner from an airplane spoon! How cool is that?! Thanks, Uncle Matthew! :)

OH!! And how did I almost forget to mention that he stood up by himself for about a second!?! Watch out!

Gabe turned 4! Happy Birthday Gabe! :) Landon got to go play with Gabe's sister, Lily! Lily is 7 months older than Landon.


Momma got to go see Daughtry with her BFF Beth!

It was an AWESOME concert and we had GREAT seats thinks to Chad :) Front and Center! 4th row, floor seats! Lifehouse opened for Daughtry and they were really good as well.

I took a lot of pictures and a few videos as well. You can go here to look at all of the pictures and all of the videos.


Lifehouse & Daughtry!

Some of Landon's favorite 'toys' are...
~the tv remote
~mommy or daddy's iPhone...actually any cell phone
~his hairbrush
~cups...especially the one you use to rinse his hair in the tub
~napkins or washcloths
and I'm sure i'm leaving some others out...but tonight we discovered a new one...

A Chick-Fil-A box. He was straight up laughing at that thing! I finally got my phone out and started recording after he had already played with it for a few minutes...funny little man!

Here's a 5 minute video of Landon not really doing a whole lot... haha. I was trying to get a good video of him crawling but he doesn't seem to want to do much of that when I start filming. He was sleepy (as you will be able to see in the video). He hasn't been feeling very well lately. He threw up for the first time last night - it about broke my heart watching him do that. I do think he is starting to feel some better though. Anyway, hope you enjoy the video...he does a little bit of crawling, clapping, talking and then gets some kisses from his big sister.

My cousin Aimee had a Luau at her house in Ft. Bragg! We were celebrating Ella Jane's 4th birthday, Brian and Aimee's Wedding Anniversary and also saying farewell to Brian. He will be going to Iraq for a while. Pray for a safe return! Little man had fun sitting outside and crawling around inside. He even learned how to drink out of a straw and now does that better than a sippy cup. We had a lot of fun spending time with family!

such a cutie!

landon and mommy.
