First, Landon didn't bite anyone yesterday! Yay Landon.

Here's a video of Landon, its very dark (we were in the bedroom last night.) Bryan was dancing for Landon, you can tell what Landon thinks of his Dad's dance moves.

And here's another cute picture from the zoo.

We got a membership to the zoo when we went on Saturday. Yes it was hot. Hello we live in Houston. But it was overcast with a few sprinkles, so overall it wasn't that bad.

Landon loved it! Loved. It. He was asleep when we got there and didn't wake up until we got inside. Then he was like, "OH MY GOSH! I'M IN HEAVEN!" He loved the fish and the reptiles. And of course the birds, monkeys, merecats...pretty much anything that moved.

The best part was all the gnasty (that's worse than just nasty - silent g) birds scavenging for food at the tables. Landon chased them all over the place.

We got to meet Diego!!

Water Bowl

Last night, Landon was using his golf club to 'stir' the water in the dog bowl. And by stir, I mean sloshing all the water out of the bowl onto the wall and floor. He thought that was great fun. Apparently he remembered this morning cause he went straight to the water bowl. But his golf club wasn't there, so instead he started throwing the dog food into the bowl. I got to him after he had about 10-12 pieces floating.

Toddler (and some pictures)

I finally found a picture where he looks a little like my baby pictures…

And this picture was taken moments before he chunked the corn cob at my head.

He's such a big help in the kitchen…

And this is his favorite spot. He digs out all the rocks and the dogs drink the rain water.

He loves rocks! Loves them. We have rocks all over our house now and in the car, on the sidewalk, in the bathtub, everywhere.

Okay, I've already given my 14 month old a body complex. Every morning, after I get on the scale, he wants to get on there too. We bought a To.tal Gy.m (yeah like, Chuc.k Nor.ris uses!) Its pretty cool so far. Of course, Landon wants to work out too. Either he'll crawls up on top of me while i'm working out or he'll use it as a slide when we're finished.

Oh No! Note

Landon got his first Oh No! note from school yesterday. Apparently he bit a girl because he was playing with the mailbox and didn't want her to play with him.

Yeah...that's my kid, the biter.

My in-laws were in for eight days last week. They completely and totally spoiled Landon rotten. The little monkey had throwing fits down to a tee. As soon as he didn't get his way, he'd give us the big sad eyes, then pitch himself forward and start crying...sure enough, as all grandmas do, Grandma Rhodes swooped in and picked him up.

So, now we're working on un-spoiling him. He has started hitting when we tell him no. Not fun.

But fun stuff - he loves birds. LOVES THEM. He's goes ape crazy when he sees or hears a bird. Then the dogs go crazy too. He's also learned to run to the fridge (like the dogs do) when he hears the ice machine being used. He wants to give the dogs ice, like Daddy does. And he's loves kissing. He kisses me all the time now. On my legs, on my cheek, on my hands. Its more of a slobbery open mouth "muah" but I love it. That is until he bites. To which I tell him no biting, to which he hits me. LOL...we're working on it. He's already much better than last week.

He's also learned to say "pop, pop, pop" like his pull along popping toy. Its prescious.
