Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We stayed here in Albuquerque with my side of the family. I made my first homemade pumpkin and apple pies! John helped with the pumpkin pie. I was pretty proud of myself although it took a lot longer than I expected. My two sisters, Shana and Courtney came in town so I was able to hang out with them all week! It was fun. We of course watched the BYU vs UTAH game. Go BYU!!! Here are some pics from our week. Of course all of them have Landon in it.

These couple pictures were taken the Sat. before Thanksgiving. He was having a grand ol' time on the bed. He almost looks like he's modeling. Don't you love his lips in the second pic? He looks like he's sticking them out to make them look bigger.
Landon and Daisy are always playing together. Landon tries to grab her chin hairs. Daisy's really good with Landon. Whenever he grabs her, she just tries to paw him off and licks his hand. I can't wait until he's a little boy and they run around together.
While we were shopping, Landon was with John and he was a rolling Fiend! He really hasn't rolled too much so this was exciting stuff for him. In the first picture, you can see how far he's moved - John placed the toy at Landon's starting point. Landon probably would've gone further, but you can see that the desk halted his progress.
You can't tell but it's snowing. We were having lovely weather up until Thanksgiving. It was in the low 70's/high 60's until the past weekend. We got snow on Black Friday!
He got tired a lot but didn't want to miss out on anything that was going on. He only slept when people were holding him.

His new hat and gloves.

Here's Landon sitting up in his boppy. Doesn't he look so proud of himself? This is an accomplishment since he doesn't do much else!
Here he is with his favorite mommy! (Do you like the drool in the second picture?)

Here he is playing with Daddy. What's that on the top of his head???

....................

It looks good enough to eat. I think I'll try it!

Here's Landon trying to eat Daddy again. He loves grabbing at things on your face like eyes!

He's growing up so fast. It's funny because when he was a newborn I was always thinking I never wanted him to get older because THIS was the perfect age. Every week it seems like I'm thinking that THAT week is the perfect age and I don't want him to get any bigger or older. With each week that passes by, I think that he gets cuter! Sorry for all the pics. We went picture crazy one night! :)

So in a previous blog I wrote about how my favorite time with Landon is in the morning. Well, here he is again in my bed and fast asleep. He reminded me of such a little boy with his hands over the sheet. He's been thrown off by the time change and I never know if he's going to want to sleep in a little more or if he's up for the morning. Oh, so Landon is saying "dada". Of course not really. It's really more like dadada dadadadadaDAdadaDADAda but John would like to think that he already knows his Dad!

Here's when Landon finally got his leg over the other. We were really hoping that he'd roll over but he didn't this time. He was just content to roll his legs back and forth.

John's already trying to teach Landon how to pray. ;) Really John was holding Landon up on his knees and then he noticed the way he was holding him looked like he was praying. Doesn't he look cute though "praying"?
Landon's become a lot more interested on the toys on his exersaucer. He loves that rolly thing. Plus, it gives me time to do something without feeling bad that I'm ignoring him! We both win!

First

Landon has discovered his toes, finally! He sorta grabbed at his feet but usually would pull his legs up by his shins. He's now looking at his toes though and grabbing them up towards his face.

Also, Landon rolled over from front to back for the first time on Saturday. However, neither John nor I actually saw it. John just noticed that Landon was all of a sudden on his stomach.

One more thing that Landon has finally noticed is that Daisy moves around and he'll actually follow her to see where she goes. He also grabs at her chin hairs when she comes over to lick his hand. Daisy's been really good with Landon though. Whenever Landon grabs her chin hairs, I usually catch her making quiet whines and pawing at his hand gently. It's so cute! Some day soon though, Daisy isn't going to be going anywhere near Landon.

This past Friday was John's birthday. So on his birthday, we went over to some friends house to have dinner and play games. It's been a long time since we've just played some games. We were up late for us married folks! We were playing till 11. I don't think Landon was so happy for us but he got over it. He was actually pretty good so I can't complain. On Saturday, my parents took us out to Texas Roadhouse for both of our birthdays, John's is on the 2nd and mind is on the 7th. It's our favorite place in the whole wide world! Mmmmmm. This picture is actually the Texas Roadhouse in Albuquerque. For your birthday you have to get on a saddle. Sadly, I was holding Landon so John had to be the one to get on the saddle. I was actually sad I didn't have the camera so I could take a picture and blog it!

For your viewing pleasure, here's Landon laughing. Just random I know.

Happy Halloween

Landon was a little bear for Halloween thanks to Tami for the costume. We went to a Trunk or Treat before Halloween to show off his costume because we weren't going to be Trick or Treating with him. I figure he's a little young for that. Sadly, on Halloween, no one came to the door so we have all this leftover candy!!! But besides that, Landon sure made a cute looking bear, don't you think?
