Landon & Kaile

We had our neighbors over for dinner on Saturday and they have a little girl that's 3 weeks older than Landon. It was so funny watching them interact. She dominated him. I hope he can fend for himself when he gets older ;) They were having so much fun together. Until Kaile decided to take Landon's pacifier away from him and put it in her own mouth :)

Landon was not happy with her when she did that! (I think this picture is too funny)

K, there is no doubt that we have the best baby in the whole world! Before we went to Costco today, I fed Landon and put him in his carseat because he fell asleep while eating and I wanted him to take a nap while we were at Costco. Well, he woke up right when we got there, which was fine. So then when we got home I fed him applesauce mixed in rice cereal and he LOVED that. He smacked his little tray just like he was playing the drums. He was soooo cute. Then I breast fed him and covered him with the blanket because I wanted him to fall asleep while eating again. Well it was the same as last night...he wouldn't go to sleep. So I turned on his lullaby CD and kind of rocked him and sat with him and I told him that it was time to take a nap. So then we went upstairs and I put him in his crib and I turned on his sleep sheep. Then I closed the door and went downstairs. I turned on the monitor and I could hear him talking and it was really funny listening to him. That lasted for about 10 minutes and then he let out a shreek. I didn't go upstairs right away, but listened to see if he was going to start crying. I didn't hear a peep. So I went up 10 minutes later to check on him and he was sound asleep. He put himself to sleep. He's seriously THE BEST BABY IN THE WHOLE WORLD! He did the same thing last night. It was 9pm already and I had fed him cereal and formula and I even tried breastfeeding him and he still wouldn't go to sleep. He looked up at me with his big blue eyes as if he was saying "what's wrong?" and I just looked at him and said that it was time to go to sleep. I was so frustrated because I was tired and sunburned and just wanted to go to bed. So I just took Landon upstairs and put him in his crib...turned on the sleep sheep (which makes soothing noises like the sound of a stream or the ocean or rain) and then I went into my own room. I turned on the monitor and listened. Nothing. He put himself to sleep. AMAZING! And on top of that....he slept until 6am :)

6 Months Old!

I can't believe Landon is 6 months old already! Time just goes by way too fast. I got a couple cute pictures of him yesterday. He finally sat up all by himself while I took a picture of him outside in the grass. I love this picture so much and the other picture I had to take because he just sat on the couch waiting for me while I got stuff together to go to play group. He's such a sweetheart.

Charlotte to See Papa Dirt and My Lola

Yes I know this is about a week late, but things have been so busy with the beautiful weather and all. Landon and I went to Charlotte, NC for two weeks to visit "Papa Dirt" and "My Lola" and his aunts. We had a great time. I took lots of pictures, as you can see.

Landon's first time hiking.

I love this picture! I think its the cutest one I've ever taken of Landon. I love is little butt crack!

Landon's first time to the pool. He loved the experience until I dunked him under....big mistake. He hated it from then on. We'll try again later.Crazy sisters on the 4th of July.This is Landon's "Kissy face" I LOVE IT! Awww, we're all so sensible in this picture!

We get bored when we're in the car though!
