I go to this muscle hour class on most Saturday mornings, or at least I try. It's my time to just be by myself and workout and John's chance to take care of Landon on his own. He enjoys the time with Landon and I enjoy going solo somewhere. Even though I'm gone for just a little over an hour, Daisy was waiting for me to come back from class this past Saturday. John just thought it was cute that she was waiting for me and missing me. Ahhh, I have the best dog ever!

Green Beans

Landon ate his first food (besides rice cereal) this week. He's still trying to figure out how to keep it in his mouth. He seemed to like the green beans even better than rice cereal.
This picture just cracks my up. He looks like he has a tiny mustache and goatee.

Austin

My parents and I went to Austin this past weekend. It was nice having people to travel with because of Landon. We went to Austin to see my niece, Riley, get sealed to my brother and sister-in-law and for the blessing. It was great to go out there and visit them. I figured since John was in Germany, I should go somewhere too so I did! My niece is only 7 weeks older than Landon but she's far ahead of him on motor skills. She's already been crawling for a couple weeks now! All Landon does is lay around. Boy is he behind! It was funny to watch them together because Landon is bigger than her but doesn't do anything while she's this tiny little thing crawling around and pulling herself up. What was really funny is when she got really excited, because she had pulled herself up into a standing position, she would squeal/scream. It was probably funnier for me and my parents than for my brother and sister-in-law because they have to hear that every single day while we just had to deal with that sound for a couple of days.

Landon was tuckered out from all the fun he'd been having.

So we went to this bridge because there's a huge colony of bats that live under there. They are supposed to come out a little after sunset in a big cloud. However, this night, we didn't see them at all. Maybe next time.
It's really hard to get a picture of them both looking AND smiling at the camera but I got it!

Waking Up

When Landon wakes up, he's always in a good mood. I decided to sneak in with a camera and take a short video of him in his crib.

Haircut

Landon was born with a ton of hair. We would always joke that at 3 weeks, we were going to be cutting it. He has been long overdue for a haircut. The back of his hair was looking so nappy and his hair has been outrageous lately. So, tonight was the night. On his 5 month birthday, me and my parents thought it'd be a good time to finally cut it. We're going to Austin this weekend for a sealing so we wanted him to look nice for it! Do you know how hard it is to cut a babies hair? They don't like to stay still and they get upset when you try and make them stay still. He was a good sport though and my Mom did a great job. He looks like a little gentleman and now, I think I can manage his hair! What a difference. Here are the results.

Great Great Relatives!

My Great Aunt Norma and Uncle Dick came in town for a short visit for the balloon fiesta. After they went in the morning to see the balloons, we went out for brunch. Landon was on his best behavior (except towards the end as you can tell). It was so good to see them since we don't see them very often because they live in Delaware. So for Landon, these were his great Great Aunt and Uncle that he got to visit with.


And here's one with Uncle Dick holding Landon

Just Hanging

Landon was being a little fussy but I was trying to get stuff done so I sat him up on the couch and he thought that was funny.

Morning Time

Every morning, I wake up to a happy little baby. It's one of the best times of the day. I bring him in to my bed with me and feed him. We then proceed to play. He'll look at my hand and hold it with his two little hands. He concentrates on my hand really hard! He'll make noises and smile. It's the best! Plus, his hair always looks outrageous.



Balloon Fiesta

Since John wasn't here I took some pictures of the hot air balloons from our bedroom window. Every year, in October, people come from all around the country to see this sight. There were about 300 balloons this year from 22 countries. It's always an awesome sight and next year, if John's in town, we'll definitely be going. You have to wake up VERY early to get there on time to see the balloons go up. It's worth it though.

Blog Spying

Okay, so it's almost 11:30 at night and I'm "spying" on other people's blogs. Does anyone else do this or is it just me? I love seeing other peoples friends or family members' blogs. I can't help myself! I love to see what other people are writing and doing. I guess since not much is going on in my life, I love seeing what's going on in other peoples lives. Sad, isn't it? People are doing some fun things out there. Sometimes, I even want to leave a comment on one of their blogs. I haven't because obviously they wouldn't have a clue who I was. Anyways, I'm just wondering if other people do this too or if I'm just weird.

All that playing can be hard work on Landon! John put together the exer-saucer. There were a ton of parts for it! Landon liked chewing on the toys and trying to twirl around. He gets frustrated when he can't turn and look at us though.



And all that playing makes him so sleepy!!
