How do you explain to a 17 month old that, no, he can not have cheese nips for breakfast? That he needs to eat his waffle like a good boy and let mom eat her piece of German Chocolate cake in peace...

What is it?

That's Lan's favorite new phrase. Doesn't matter if he knows what it is, he still says it. Cutie Patootie.

Bry made him mac and cheese last night while I was making burritos and spanish rice. But Landon wanted what Mom and Dad were eating! But then he got upset when Dad was eating salsa and he couldn't have any.

After dinner, we all just snuggled on the couch for a while, watching football. Lan's a great snuggler. Then Bry had to play volleyball, so Landon and I watched Sc.ooby D.oo and then Za.boomafo, then off to bed.

I love my family.

Some pictures

Landon was going to have splash day at school, so I took it as an opportunity to 'fix' his hair. Not sure dad thought it was too cute, but I thought he looked great.

Here's Landon and his cousins (minus Grace) when they visited a few weeks ago. We went to target to get pictures and I'm telling you, this beats any picture that idiot tried to take.

Our Florida boy

And finally, Landon in his footies

We're here...and growing fast

Landon is getting SO big. He's all grown up. For a 17 month old, anyway.

We're transitioning rooms at daycare this week. He looks so tiny in his new room, but in his old room he's the king of the land. It's time for him to move, but its hard on mama.

He's talking all the time now. ALL. THE. TIME. "What's this?" "What's that do?" "Here you go" "Where's the puppies?" And I think yesterday he may have said shutup. Not the shutup as in quit talking, but the shut up as in 'get out, seriously'...i say it all the time. We HAVE got to start watching what we say.

He's out of the highchair. He either sits in a normal chair and barely reaches his food, or we found an Eddie Bauer booster that he likes, so we use that.

He can climb anything. The baby gates, the couch, the car seats, the bed, the tub. He's our little monkey.

He loves to wink (which is more like just squinting his eyes) and saying bye-bye to everyone. He's a total flirt.

His new favorite song is "Five little monkeys jumping on the bed." Its so cute to see him do all the hand gestures. He's sleeping more and more in his crib, but still likes to use Mom's hair to go to sleep.

He's so much fun...I'm sad I haven't kept up with this blog like I used to. I'll try to do better. Cause I love my boy and don't want to forget any of this.
