Naps are important.

Sandy and Seth came down for a visit yesterday. The boys played their hearts out. Lan missed out on nap time, only sleeping for a short bit on the way to lunch.

So, about 6:30...he's out. Out cold. He woke up around 8:30ish, ate two bites of a corn dog and fell back to sleep.

And thus the reason he was awake at 5 am this morning. So, yes, starb.ucks in my hand, I'm exhuasted.

Friday, January 4, 2008 Ea.rth

Our friend, Mr. Danny, purchased the Blue Ray Ea.rth series yesterday. We watched Seasonal Forests and Deepest Ocean. OH. MY. GOSH. It was outstanding. Words can't even describe it. Awesome. Landon watched some of it too...he kind of got bored when they just talked about trees, but he liked seeing all the animals. Then the trees would come back on and he'd take off to go play in his Tho.mas the tent (that Mr. Danny also bought him.) Spoiled, I tell you.

New House

SOOOO much has happened in the last two weeks. Which actually feel more like 12 weeks, but yep, only two.

We closed on the new house, got all of our furniture and junk out of the old house...and painted the new house, put up blinds, new lights, ceiling fans, etc, etc, etc.

Landon loves the new house. It's a two story with a great game room upstairs. That's where Landon drags everyone as soon as they come through the door. Landon's bedroom is upstairs and he got a big boy bed (Full size) for Christmas. He's been sleeping up there too (lol - i go up about 4ish and sleep the rest of the night with him, mainly cause I'm too tired once I get him back asleep to get up and go back downstairs.)

We've been working hard on the new house. My in-laws came down and helped SO much. They helped us paint, then schlepped everything out of our old garage over to the new house. The good thing is that we're only 2 and a half blocks away from our old house AND we sold the old house to our best friend, so he's being reasonable about us getting everything out of the garage.

Lan's learning all kinds of stuff. He surprises us every day with something new. He has also become a monkey. He climbs EVERYTHING, mostly me and my head. He must think I'm one great jungle gym. He was showing us the sing langauge from his baby einstein video...I didn't even realize he'd picked it up yet. But he knows tree, puzzle, blocks, flower, its so cute to see his little hands trying to make the signs.

His favorite character right now is 'Goopy' (goofy) - from Micky Mouse. He loves yelling out 'GOOOOPY' as soon as he sees any dog that resembles the cartoon. He also loves to say Ma-ma, over and over to make sure I'm paying attention to whatever he's doing. And "sit-sit-sit" to sit down and play with him. Outside is his other most used word.

Since the move, he's really become attached to his Pacifier (Maa, as he calls it.) I'm sure he needs a security object with all the changes going around, but I really wish we could get it away from him before it gets worse.

Christmas Recital

Landon's Christmas program lasted all of about 15 seconds. But he did a great job!

He's so cute. They led the kids in, each holding on to a long rope of red tensil, then handed out bells. The babies shook the bells while the adults sang Jingle Bells. They were all sooo cute.

Then we all headed over to Chili's for dinner. Yummo! Melyssa and Maddox went with us, the boys had a great time playing together.
