Happy Halloween!!

We took the boys to a Halloween carnival at a church down the road and they both did great.  Landon really had a lot of fun and he got a lot of compliments on his costume.  They had free snacks, hay rides, bouncy houses, fun games and of course plenty of candy.

Happy Friday!

Daddy Relaxing.

Landon playing soccer. At least he's not using his hands.

Liam doesn't like tummy time. But he did roll over on Landon's birthday! He had to get some attention that day too ya know?!

24 Months.

This will be my last monthly post for Landon!  I've tried to do a post each month since he was born updating everyone on everything from what size clothes he's wearing to how he interacts with everyone around him and so forth.  Wanna take a trip down memory lane?? ...

one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twenty, twenty-one, twenty-two, aaannd twenty-three!

Landon had his 2 year check-up today!  He did GREAT.  I was so proud of the way he interacted with the doctor and smiled at her and let her mess and poke at him.  He didn't seem to care one bit.  I came prepared for his shots too with a milkshake (pediasure drink that he LOVES), a sucker, and a new toy (from his birthday that he had yet to open).  So right after the shots I distracted him with all those goodies and it worked like a charm.  I don't know how thrilled the doctor was about the sucker but I didn't care :)

He weighed 25 1/2 lbs (25% percentile) and was in the 30th percentile for height (can't remember the exact number).  But she said he was right on track for how he's been growing and that everything with him seemed to be just fine!   


Pumpkin Carving!

We carved our pumpkin Tuesday night.  Landon helped me pick out all of the pumpkin seeds so we could cook them while Daddy carved away.  Liam enjoyed watching us and hanging out.

State Fair

We went to the NC State Fair this past Sunday.  We wanted to do something fun to keep our minds off things and we really ended up having a good time.  We got to eat a lot of good, healthy food and walk our tails off.  Here are some iPhone pictures from the day ... 

Playing with Cranky at home after a fun day at the fair.

Birthday Pictures

Go here to check out all of Landon's John Deere Birthday Party pictures!   

Landon's 2nd Birthday Party!

Landon had a wonderful birthday! We had a John Deere themed party because he loves tractors and really anything with wheels.  I had fun with the green and yellow color scheme.  We also rented a bouncy house from 8am - 8pm and he would have stayed in the thing the entire time if we had of let him. I was worried he wouldn't like it but that certainly wasn't the case. His favorite part was the slide and by the end of the day he was able to climb the 'stairs' (really more like a ladder) inside the bounce house and get to the top of the slide all by himself. He played in it so hard in the morning that he actually wore himself out and took a nap before his party that afternoon. We had a great turn out for the party and I think everyone had a good time. We had a tractor pinata that I ended up having to crack open for the kids……those things are a lot harder to open than they seem!! Here are a few iPhone pictures from his big day (I'll post the camera pictures later):

PS: I don't want to go into a lot of detail about Haley's passing on Landon's birthday post but I do want to say thanks for all of your prayers and please keep them coming. We are really missing our girl.
