Yes, I know....it's been a while since I've updated the blog. However, this doesn't mean there hasn't been anything to post. Quite the contrary. We've been busy and we have the pictures to prove it. The past week or so has been full of many firsts for Landon.
Last weekend was Landon’s first Valentine’s Day.
Grandma and Grandpa Aberle were in town for the weekend. They had so much fun playing and spending time with Landon. Grandma also read aloud to Landon the 2 special books they brought to him for a V-day present. We all went out for a V-day dinner, Landon slept through most of it. It was so fun to have them here and to spend time with him with our little man.
Landon also received another V-day present from Grammy & Grandpa Menold. They sent him 2 stuffed animals (a pig and a V-day lion) and an outfit, which the shirt says “Little Man” (a nickname that Dave & I have been calling Landon since day 1).
Isn’t it obvious how much his grandparents adore him?! He’s so blessed to have 2 sets of grandparents that love him so much!!!
Yes, he's still sucking his thumb (usually when he is hungry or fussy).
On Tuesday, Feb. 17, Landon was 4 weeks old. This included another trip to the dr.’s office. He weighed 9 pounds 11 inches and was almost 23 inches long! He has grown so much in the past 2 weeks, and has started filling out nicely. He is starting to get chubby cheeks, a double chin, and getting some meat on his legs – so cute!!! Landon wasn’t very happy to get weighed at the dr.’s office, mostly because he didn’t like being undressed. The Dr. called him Mr. Perfect, something that Mom already knew ;)
The week ended with Landon turning 1 month old on Friday, Feb. 20. To celebrate Landon & Mom went shopping ~ he’s a great shopper! He slept the entire time. Grammy & Grandpa Menold came in on Friday evening. While they babysat we went to out for the evening for a nice dinner at Citizen Kane’s and dessert at Ted Drewes. It was so nice to spend some time with each other to reflect on Landon, changes that have come with him and how our lives will forever be changed with him in our family. All of the changes have been so worth it - we love him so much!
