Yesterday morning found Landon & I at the pediatrician's office. An awful cough hit Landon hard.......the result......STREP THROAT & CROUP!! Ugh! We were so close to making it through a whole month "sick free"!! Ok, so we'll try this again in February!! And we'll keep our fingers crossed that he at least remains "sick free" until after his 2nd birthday (Feb. 11th)!! If you recall, he wasn't so lucky for his 1st birthday:( Although we got some not-so-good news.......there has to be some GOOD for every not-so-good, right??!! Well my friends, Landon has officially joined the 20+ pound club!! That's right, he weighed in at 20lbs. 11oz!! AND......he did it exactly 2 weeks BEFORE his 2nd birthday!! YEAH!!! BUT......(yes, there is always a BUT in there).....his pediatrician feels that it is best if he remains rear-facing until he gains a few more pounds......ha!......so we are hoping he will face forward by the time he is 3!!! lol Oh well, we are one step closer!!
A few posts ago, I mentioned how Landon has been sporadically taking some independent steps. It always happens so quickly and it has not been easy trying to catch it on film. BUT, (see, there's always a BUT), I have been determined to catch his first steps so that I could share it with everyone. I don't have to tell any of you just how hard Landon has been working to achieve this milestone.......MOST of you already know this. But I know that ALL of you can appreciate his hard work and know what a BIG moment this is for Landon AND for us!! What better way than to share & celebrate this moment than with our closest family & friends!!
Landon DID IT!! He just might be running around the backyard with his brothers this spring!!!
