1 Whole Year!

It has been a little over 1 year since we were blessed with our little angel! Our year(and 1 month) has been filled with a lot of fun, frustration, and learning. No only for Jared and I, but for Landon as well. We have adjusted and gotten a routine(of course now that I say that it will change). Landon has been such a good baby for us, I only hope his next year he will do the same. We love being a family!

Not a lot has happened these past two weeks.-Hence the lack of posts. However, I did take Landon for his One Year check up. He is doing great. The last check up he had was at 6 months and BOY! has he grown. He went from the 30% to the 51% in weight. He is still in the 70% for height so that is good too. The sweet boy above, born at 6lbs 11oz. now weighs 23lbs. 6oz. I'm sure some of you were wondering if he would ever get chunky!
My reasoning for choosing this picture is so that we can all remember how little he was 1 year ago. Plus if you see how happy he is, then you can understand a little of what it was like when he got his 6 immunization shots. Poor little guy. Two nurses on each side of him, while I held his arms in front, gave him 3 shots in each leg. They did it this way so it would be quick. I'm sure it was, but it didn't seem like it. You should have seen the look he gave me when they poked him with the first one, and from then on...well you can only guess.
I'm glad to say that it is over and he survived. We don't need shots for another 6 months and even then there won't be as many. Thank goodness! Now we just need to hang in ther for the next two weeks and hopefully they won't affect him too much.

Wow! Time flies, these kids grow too fast! I found your blog through other family blogs. You sure have a cute family (and blog to prove it)!
With love!

It's hard to even remember Landon as that skinny little guy. It's amazing how much he changed in the last six months. We've got one more week 'til Alyssa gets all those fun shots...not fun.
