We Moved!

We moved in our house on August 19th!  You can go here to check out some pictures.  We still have a few things left in the apartment that needs to be moved but we do have the majority of everything we need over here.  One of the biggest changes has been Haley.  We are not going to let her in the main part of the house.  The 3 seconds she came in she scratched the hardwood floors.  We feel like she needs to be outside the majority of the time anyway, because ...well, she is a dog... (we just gotta make sure she knows that).  She has gotten better and better everyday.  We got her the invisible fence system and she got shocked one time (on a low setting) and that seemed to be enough for her.  Chad even shocked himself to see what it felt like just to make sure it wouldn't hurt her too much.  She doesn't even try and run off at all.  We can take her shock collar off and she still won't run off.  She's really done great.  And she is an awesome guard dog.  She barks when people come to the house.  I'm so proud of her.  She's got a nice set up on the screened in back porch too.  We think we might get a doggie door for the screened in back porch because we've just been leaving the door open for her now which sorta defeats the purpose of having a screened in back porch.  She can also lay out on the front porch too so she's got plenty of shelter until we get her doggie house built.  Chad lets her hang out in the basement some too though so she still gets to come inside some. 

On another related note, one of my favorite things about moving in has been that I can now fold laundry in the living room and not get dog hair all over it.  I can let Landon crawl and roll and play all over the floor and not have to worry about all the dog hair he'll get on him.  We can actually have nice furniture now that Haley won't be laid up on it (Notice the new living room furniture we got in the pictures which I LOVE!!).  Another one of my favorite things has been the playroom.  Landon will go in there and actually play and I can be in the living room or kitchen and still have my eye on him.  I can also watch what I want since he has his own TV in there...AND we finally got cable back!!!!! YAY for DVR!!  Oh I'm a happy girl right now.  If I could only get Liam to sleep a little longer then things would be perfect.  haha. Speaking of Liam...aka: Mr.'s time to feed him so I'll update more later!

22 months

Landon turned 22 months old on the 22nd!  He's been super busy lately with checking out the new house and hanging out with everyone.  He is SO. MUCH. FUN. right now and even though he may sound like a broken record quite often, I love how he can now communicate with you and we are really starting to see his personality.  He thinks he's a funny guy...and I might just have to agree with him :)  He's an AWESOME big brother and really does help me out even more than I thought he would.  Just the other day Liam was crying and before I could get in there Landon was already over there trying to sick a paci in Liam's mouth...haha.  He helps me clean up and put the dirty clothes away and he grabs blankets and other things I need and brings them to me.  I'm taking advantage of the help while he thinks he's a fun game :)  

I can tell some of this 18th month clothes are actually starting to get a little bit tighter on him.  He can even wear some 24 month things...but not very many.  It really depends on the brand.  Honestly he still has a few 12 month things he can fit into.  He's wearing size 5 diapers and he's still not a big fan of eating a lot.  We did cut back on his milk intake and that has seemed to help somewhat with him eating more food.  He still takes one long nap in the middle of the day.  He's an awesome nap taker...he's just an awesome sleeper in general.  I keep telling him he needs to share those secrets with his little brother..........ha.

if you look closely, you'll see Landon is holding Liam's hand...yes, he asked to hold the baby's hand :)
Go here to check out some more pictures of what we've been doing.

1 Month

Liam turned one month old on the 18th!  He was 9lbs 15oz at his one month check up, so he had gained exactly 3 lbs since he was born.  Although if you think about it he had lost weight at first and then got back to his birth weight when he was about a week he really had gained 3lbs in a few weeks.  Piglet.  He likes to eat A LOT and he likes to eat A LOT more than Landon ate.  He hasn't went more than 4 or 5 hours at night without eating, and during the daytime he usually wants to eat about every 2 to 3 hours.  The doctor confirmed he has reflex and gave him an Rx at his one month check up.  I hope I start to see the medicine make more of a difference soon...poor guy.  Landon is still being really sweet with him and rarely seems to get jealous.  He tried to get Liam to play trucks with him yesterday and got sorta ill when Liam wouldn't take the truck Landon was trying to give him...haha.  

Here's our cute little man at one month...

And here I was one month after Liam was born...I'm proud to say I'm even smaller than that now and I can't wait to start running again!

And here's a sweet picture of Ava feeding Liam.  I love that child.  :)

It's the little things that make me happy :)

So this is a horrible picture BUT it is crazy how much Landon looks like me...


more cuteness here.


This past Saturday we got to spend some time with the nephews! :)  They are both so proud of their new cousin, Liam.  They are already great with Landon and love to play with him.  I think these four boys are gonna have plenty of fun times in the future.


The first two bath's that Liam took he enjoyed and didn't cry once. Well, of course when we got the camera out this last time he screamed like crazy. Landon sure does love bath time though because he gets to paint and draw and play in the wawa! It'll be so nice when they can take baths together!

I couldn't help it... matching PJs

kisses for brother

more kisses
