When I was 2 months old my mommy's side of the family came to see me. They were crazy! They kept trying to make me do stuff... but I told you! When I was that young, I only liked to lay there and poop! And have you ever seen 4 red-headed girls in the same room? It was too much to handle at my tender age. My mommy has a mommy and daddy too and I call them My Lola and Papa Dirt. They came to visit with my three crazy aunts. Papa dirt is one handsome guy (but only because he was born fortunate enough to look like me). When I was 5 months old I went to visit all of them in Charlotte and it was so HOT! And since I was so much older I was way more entertaining to them. They couldn't get enough of my cute little tummy or the way I danced in my new "Exersaucer" with all the cool toys on it. Did I mention how many animals Papa Dirt and My Lola keep in their house? WHOA! Every other Sunday, Mommy, Daddy, and I go to Grandma and Grandpa Shepherd's house to play and eat good food. I love going over there and seeing my Daddy's side of the family!
Do you want to hear how amazing I am? I started sitting up the day before I turned 6 months old! Shortly thereafter, Daddy taught me how to crawl when I was only 7 months old. It opened my eyes to a whole new world of mischief! Thanks Mommy and Daddy! Wait, I'm not finished... I started pulling myself up on the coffee table and couch when I was 8 months old, and I've become very experienced with the treacherous terrain and the knee over hand action of these amazing things called the stairs. I'm not really SUPPOSED to climb them, but I've gotta keep Mommy on her toes. I also found a huge white shiny bowl with a lid that makes a really loud noise when you touch the knob (toilet). There’s water in there too, but Mommy doesn’t let me play in it L When I was 8 months old I started swimming lessons with my friend Sutton. I hated it at first when my Mommy put me under the water, but now you might think I'm related to a dolphin with the way I splash around everywhere! At 9 months I got to dress up in the greatest costume for Halloween. I was a giraffe! I loved it! But then, the next morning, woke up with this sharp thing in my mouth... Don't worry! It was just a tooth! And I have 3 of them now!
This month, Mommy and Daddy put up these tall trees with bright lights and shiny balls on them in our house and I hate to admit it, but they scare me! Mommy keeps telling me they're for this thing called Christmas... She sings and plays happy music all the time. I think it might be a conspiracy. How can you be happy with two scary trees in your house? But even if it is, I still get to go visit My Lola and Papa Dirt in Charlotte for Christmas day! Oh... and those crazy aunts...

Then we had the "Trunk-or-Treat" at our church. Grandma and Grandpa came too. Landon loves spending time with them.He even got a picture with "Smurfette"...I still don't know how Leona got all that blue off her face the next day ;)I know, I'm such a bad mom. I let Landon try some of his Halloween candy. I couldn't resist. He kept watching me put Dum Dums in my mouth so I let him try one. It was hilarious.

Dirt got tracked around the house from our tree that's in the corner and the kids had fun taking apart the alphabet play mat. Kind of made me nervous but I soon got over it. I guess the're just getting me ready for what Landon will be capable of when he gets a little older. Clean up was easier than I thought it was going to be. Thank goodness for my Dyson vacuum. I LOVE that thing!!!
Our friend Dena surprised us with her presence and her two wonderful kids. She moved to Utah this summer and it was so sad to see her go. We were happy to see her again.
Landon and Kaile played well together. She used to beat Landon up...but he can hold his own now.
Landon and his best bud Sutton. They're so cute when they get together.
Baby Kate in her tutu. She was soooo cute!
