July 4th

Holidays that fall in the middle of the week aren't that fun. It makes it seem like you actually have two Mondays, but I worked on the 4th, so it was like I didn't get a break at all, really.

The in-laws came down again. They're helping us finish out the room over our detached garage. We had a ton of rain this past week, but it finally blew through for a while yesterday, so we were able to play outside. Landon finally was brave enough to venture into his sandbox. Then he helped me pot a ton of plants we got 1/2 at Hou.ston Gar.den. Then we washed off in his little gator pool. The hose hooks up to the outside and then spouts water out of the top of the gator head. I turned the water so that it just bubbled out, and Landon was having a great time. I taught him how to get a drink of the water, or how to blow bubbles in it. He really just liked sticking his face through it.

He passed out during lunch. Too much fun outside. He's back to saying "Ma ma" now. So its not Daddy all the time. But he's saying lots of words now. Truck, Shoot (because, seemingly all this boy things about is balls, basketball, volleyball, golf balls, whatever) Duck, quack, moo, meow (sort of), bird, boo, and on and on.

He's also learned itsy bitsy spider, which is so cute to watch.
Here's some pictures from our week.

He made Grandma sit in the floor in the kitchen and read to him:

My little stud:

And a video of him falling asleep during lunch:
