Happy 2nd Birthday Landon!!!



WOW!!  Can you believe it??  Landon is 2, today!!  This past year seemed to fly by even faster than the first.....YIKES!!  Although it's sad how quickly time goes by, TODAY, I am finding much joy in the place this amazing journey has taken us, so far. And I am feeling very blessed and thankful for this little love who has graced us with his presence.

At 2 years old, Landon..........

~has mastered the 4 point crawl
~can sign over 35 words, without prompting
~is beginning to self-feed (with a spoon)
~is beginning to take sips from a sippy cup & straw
~is FINALLY accepting new tastes and textures
~is officially WALKING more than crawling


video

~has 8 teeth (the 9th is on its way)......all 4 molars, 2 top front, 2 bottom front 
~has learned to climb on the couch (but has yet to find a more graceful way to get down)
~is PRACTICING climbing out of his crib, YIKES!!!:/
~can climb stairs alternating his knees and feet
~LOVES to take baths (and WILL NOT get out, until he is ready)
~LOVES MUSIC (singing and dancing are his favorite things to do)
~enjoys being read to (and is the best page turner)
~ADORES his big brothers (his face just lights up when they walk in the room)
~loves to WRESTLE with his brothers (and pull Elijah's hair)
~gives the best bear hugs and the sweetest and wettest kisses
~knows and points to different parts of his face & body
~can make the living room look like a tornado hit it in 2 seconds flat
~makes the silliest faces to make you laugh (especially when he knows he did something wrong)
~has begun the potty training process..........*sigh*
~IS TOUCHING HEARTS OF THOSE LUCKY ENOUGH TO MEET HIM!!

Landon had a very busy 2nd birthday............

~he went to feeding therapy first thing in the morning





~he went to PT in the afternoon





~then we went to Texas Roadhouse for a birthday dinner (well, we ate for him, lol)...and they did their signature "YEE HAW" for the birthday boy (and he actually sat on the saddle)




~then it was home for our family tradition "Birthday ICE CREAM CAKE" for dessert (and this year, Landon actually touched the cake and licked his fingers......the proof is on his "blue" tongue)!!  LOL




~then, of course, it was present time......I think Landon enjoyed the balloon & wrapping paper most!




We will be having Landon's party (with friends & family) next Saturday........BOWLING!!  Will post pics of the party then!!!  Here is a glimpse of Landon at a bowling party, last year..........cannot wait to see how he does this year:)

  11. Look, those presents are bigger than he is! Looks like he flexes his feet up when he sits like Arina does! Look at him walking, I can't believe he is getting so big!
