Landon thinks his faux-hawk is cool!
Landon weighs about 15 pound 6 ounces this week. He’s such a happy-go-lucky baby. We are truly blessed by his beautiful smile everyday. He loves to play - whether it's in the exersaucer, on the floor, or in the bathtub. He's always busy, busy, busy.
This week we had two special visitors – Joe & Amanda visited us on their way home from their family vacation in Branson. We were so excited for their visit, because it was their first time to meet Landon! Landon had so much fun with both of them. We enjoyed dinner downtown St. Charles on Friday night, then on Saturday we went to Forest Park to eat Lunch and took a little walk around the park. They couldn’t leave St. Louis before getting a dessert from Ted Drewes – YUM!!! Daddy gave Landon his first little taste of Ted Drewes – of course Landon loved it – it was food!!! J Joe & Amanda – thank you so much for visiting! It was great to catch up and spend time with you both!!!
One of Dave’s many projects this summer is to get our 1971 Imp Mercruiser ski-boat running smoothly. Dave has spent the last 2 summers working on it, but wasn’t able to get it in the water last summer. So, he’s been working very hard at getting it ready for this summer. Saturday evening we went out for Landon’s first ride in the boat. Landon LOVED it. He was so relaxed on the boat. He slept the first 30 minutes as we cruised around on the Mississippi. We floated for a bit while Landon got his bottle, then we cruised back down river. Landon didn’t sleep, but he was very relaxed and seemed to enjoy the ride. Good thing, because he is guaranteed many more trips to the river and time on the boat J The good news was that the boat ran smooth and got us back to the boat dock safely – YAY!!!
Another one of Dave’s projects this summer has been working on his mountain bikes. He and his buddies have decided to start mountain biking together on the weekends. While they went mountain biking on Sunday, Landon had a little play date with Adler. Adler is 3 months younger than Landon and is such a sweet little baby boy! I put Adler and Landon on the blanket with toys for a little bit and was playing with them. Adler started to cry a little bit. When Landon heard Adler’s cry he decided to start crying – I was very thankful at that point that I didn’t have twins!! I found that Adler enjoyed the bouncy seat, so I put Landon in his Bumbo seat next to Adler so they could see each other. Landon would just stare at Adler and study him. Landon’s reaction was so funny. He couldn’t quite figure out what Adler was doing. They were both so cuteJ It will be fun to watch the boys grow up together!!
