What to wear?

One of the things Landon does every morning, whether he is home with me or Jared, is he helps pick out his clothing for the day. Sometimes I just hand him the clothes and he holds on to them and sometimes I hold up two different things for him to chose. Which ever he grabs is what he wears. It kind of makes getting dressed a little more fun and interactive for him. Once he has his clothes, he helps carry them into the living room where we get him dressed.
Now that's another story. I'm sure it could be a comedy act to see one of us try to get him dressed as he trys to roll and scoot all over the house! Little Wigga! (BTW he's almost crawling, I'm sure by next week [when I hopefully update this] he will be crawling all over the hosue.)

Saturday was so warm, it felt like summer. Landon and I went to the bank, in the afternoon. I had the air conditioner on full blast because it was so warm in the car. When we got home poor Lanny was dripping with sweat, so we went to Grandma and Grandpa's house (Urry) and played in the pool. This was the first and only time Landon has been in a pool. He absolutely loved it!

Laundry and Nails

Ok so those of us in the Fitts family know it is not uncommon to find nails, screws, drill bits, etc. in the laundry. Mondays are my laundry days (and deep cleaning the kitchen, including moping the floors) so yesterday I was working away at my job. I had sorted all of the many different loads on the floor, which I always do. I had a darks pile, a lights pile and socks pile all on the floor and the rest were sorted in our neat-o sorter basket. I was working on the computer waiting to change loads (Free time- Lanny is napping). I realized there was something in the laundry room that I needed so I got up and went into the laundry room to get it, and to my surprise, I heard a funny popping sound and my foot kind of hurt. I instantly remembered the overly stuffed pocket, full of nails, in a pair of Jared's Khaki cargo shorts that I had emptied while sorting the clothes. I looked down and saw, not Khaki, but Navy. I had stepped on a pair of Jared's Navy cargo pants. Yep you guessed it right! I must have missed one nail, because his Navy pants were now nailed to my foot. Just my luck. I was very upset and frustrated, not because I stepped on the nail, but because I didn't have time or plans to deal with that. I had far better plans than spending 2 hours at the Insta-Care waiting for a dumb shot that would make my arm hurt just as bad as my foot!This picture is of my little blood trail through my kitchen on my newly mopped floor. When I saw this I was already frustrated, and it made me even more frustrated that I just started to cry. Not only do I have to take care of my foot and get a shot, but now I need to re-mop the stupid floor!

My sweet Jared felt so bad he bought me some flowers, a get well soon balloon, and some nice new cotton socks to make my feet comfy and feel better. What a sweetheart. It was not his fault, but he felt pretty bad. I must admit, so far, the second day is the worst! I'm just glad it was me now, rather than one of our kids later on.
LESSON TO BE LEARNED: Empty your pockets! or check ALL pockets before placing laundry on the floor!

We love our walks!

I know I promised I would update this. Nothing new and exciting is going on in our family but I do have a picture or two I'd like to share.

This first picture was about two weeks ago. I decided to go for a jog and I took Landon with me. It looked so nice outside and I dressed him in a T-shirt and shorts. I made sure I packed blankets and I at least thought about a jacket for him. (But soon came to find out I forgot to actually pack it!) We got out of the car and I got everything ready and I noticed how not-so-nice it was outsied, and I realized I totally forgot his jacket. Good thing I wore one for myself, because that became his. I didn't think it would work, but it actually worked quite well. I must admit I was so glad I brought my jacket so he could have one. While I was jogging I was quite cold. Good thing Landon was warm!

This next picture is from today. We went for a walk this afternoon. I had some things to pick up from Susan's and some things to drop off at Becca's; before the little one comes! Anyway, it was a beautiful day so I figured we would just walk over there. We visited with Grandma Susan for a while and then we headed over to Becca and Jordan's. We also visited with them for a while. We headed home around 4:30 (about 1 hour past Landon's nap time) and as you can see in the picture, if you can tell, (the picture is from my phone so it's not the best) Landon didn't quite make it home for his nap. He fell asleep on the way, holding his empty bottle!

Oh! One thing I forgot to mention, Landon does not like to have hats on! I put that had on, I swear, about twenty times! I could have easily given up but I did not put sunblock on his face, so I wanted to at least try to keep the sun off him.
