It's time

So Landon has been army crawling for about a month now, and has been pulling himself up to a standing position for a few weeks. Well, on Monday he officially started crawling. Thankfully we were at Sarah and James' house and they ALWAYS have a camera/video camera handy, so we were able to catch his first time on video! I will make sure to post the video ASAP for our family. Jeremy and I were so excited to have him finally start crawling, but I had forgotten what it is like to have a mobile baby. Last night we turned our heads for a second and he was half way up the stairs. It is definitely time for the baby gate!

Oh, Christmas Tree!

Continued our tradition and cut down the PERFECT tree today with the Wagners. It is a beauty! Love, love, love Christmas!

25 days, 21 hours and counting...

Halloween this year was a lot of fun! We started off the night at Sarah and James' Halloween party. After that we went over to Jeremy's parent's house to show off Landon's costume. To end the night, we went to my parent's house for their Halloween party. Busy but great!

Pumpkin Patch

On Saturday we went with some friends to The Farm in Snohomish to get our pumpkins. Landon didn't seem too excited. Next year for sure will be better when he actually understands. None the less, we had a great time!

A couple of weeks ago Landon and I went on a "Girl Trip" to California with my mom and two of my sisters. We had such an amazing time! Landon was a dream on the flight. I was worried how the pressure on the plane would affect his ears since it has always caused me grief, but he was great! It was nice to get away and spend time with a lot of family members Landon had never met. I can't wait to go back in December for Disneyland!

The Cup

This week we decided to introduce Landon to the cup. He has always loved drinking water from our cups and water bottles. He did pretty well. We have to fill it really full because he doesn't quite have the concept of tipping the cup up for the water to come out. It's really cute when we bring out 'his' cup- he gets really excited and starts reaching for it. The moment we give it to him he practically slams it into his mouth.

Kisses and waves

This last week we have been working with Landon on giving kisses and waving to us. He has been watching Baby Einstein, First Moves, and he loves it! I highly recommend it. It definitely helped teach him how to wave. He is getting really good at kisses. If we lay him on his belly and we pucker our lips he will lean right in, open-mouth and all, and plant one on us. Last night was the first time he really started waving. We were at our friend's house and he was sitting on my lap- Keilah was on the computer and he turned to her and started waving his hand. Then he started waving at Jeremy and Steve. It was the cutest thing. The best however was when we got home. I was nursing him right before he went to bed, and he pulled off all of a sudden, looked up at me, grinned, and started waving. It was the absolute best thing. I of course totally teared up. They say you are really emotional when you are pregnant- but I would have to say it's even worse once your baby is finally here. I will try and put a video up of his new tricks for our family.

Sorry to all of our family for not updating our blog. I know it has been forever. Here is a little recap of the last month and a half. I also have pictures from Papa's surprise 50th birthday and Landon's first Mariners game that I will put up asap... (they are on a different camera that is currently not in our possession).

First vacation to Montana for Great Grandma and Grandpa Steven's 50th wedding anniversary. Landon did awesome for the 8 1/2 hour car ride. We only had to stop once- and that's because I had to use the bathroom!

At the rest stop on the way there.

Sitting with cousins on family picture day.
Family BBQ our first night in Montana.

Hanging with dad before going to the lake.
Jeremy with two of his sisters.

Landon hanging out with Grandma Debbie and his new frog.

After the anniversay weekend, we drove over to Hamilton to visit with the Klippenstein side of the family.

Landon with cousin Cassandra.

Sleeping in the giant bears at the Three Bears Cafe. He was getting fussy so we laid him in between the two stuffed bears, and he was out in no time!

Spending time with Great Grandpa Klip.

First camping trip to Long Beach/Astoria with Sarah and James. We went to see the kite festival. It was a ton of fun and Landon did great! We were a little worried on how well he would sleep, but he did awesome and slept almost nine hours. Jeremy and I on the other hand were up half the night because of all the noise the Elk were making.

Sitting with Fufu on the way there.

So happy to finally be out of the car and at the campsite.
James and Jeremy setting up our HUGE tent.

First campfire.

Walking around at the Kite Festival.
Last day of the Kite Festival.

It was sooooo cold!

He is getting so big! We have his 6 month appointment in a couple of weeks so I will post the official stats then. But as far as weight goes he is over 18 pounds! Definitely a solid little man.

4 Months Old!

One month older and wiser too! Here are some things Baby Landon does now...

-Grabs and holds onto his toys

-Grabs at our hands and food when we eat

-LOVES to drink water. He grabs at our cups and pulls them to his mouth to drink ALL the time. It's pretty much impossible to eat or drink anything with him on our laps now.

-Laughs out loud

-Loves to "talk" to his daddy

-Loves to stand and sit up- he is getting pretty good at sitting by himself.

-LOVES pulling hair- especially if it's dark

-Still sleeps really well. Not like he used to, but we can thank his new teeth for that.

-Starting to scoot on his hands and knees. Pediatrician says he will be crawling in no time- great!

-Takes the best photos!

Shots and Stats

Today we took Landon to the pediatrician. He is in the 90th percentile for both height and weight coming in at 15 lbs 1oz and almost 26 inches long. His head circumference ranks in the 80th percentile, so it's not as small as I thought. :) After doing some research and talking with my parents regarding immunizations, Jeremy and I opted not to give Landon the Hep B shot as well as the ROTA virus shot. Our pediatrician totally agreed with our decision which was really nice. They have a shot where it's like a three for one deal. We were really happy that Landon only had to endure one instead of three. I was totally prepared to cry my eyes out, but he took it like a champ! He cried for about 20 seconds and then it was over. By the time we reached the lobby, he was all smiles and sucking on his hand. We are so grateful to have such a happy littly guy. No more shots for awhile!

Happy 4th!

For Landon's first 4th we took him to Lynnwood High School to watch the fireworks show. Jeremy and I along with friends and family have gone to the fireworks show at LHS for years. Unfortunately this was our last year because there will be no more Lynnwood High School next year. Jeremy and I were a little worried on how Landon would handle the fireworks since he is kind of a wimp when it comes to loud noises. He did surprisingly well until the end- then he kind of lost it. Poor little guy got a mosquito bite the size of a nickel on his cheek too! (See pic below). Next year I'm sure he will have a better time.

The aftermath...look at that thing- it's huge!

Father's Day

I know I'm a week late, but here are some pictures from Jeremy's first Father's Day. I just love the picture where Landon looks like he is in awe of the gifts. I am so grateful for the wonderful father Jeremy is. Landon sure is lucky to have such an amazing daddy!
