Okay, so no one really asked, but I'm sharing anyway :)
Landon had his 9 month check-up, and according to the doctor, he's great! He weighed in at 17lbs 9oz, and was 28.6" tall. That puts him in the 19th percentile for weight, and the 57th for height. Maybe we'll get our pro basketball player someday? Hehehe... Hey, a parent can dream! If we have to, we'll settle for pro baseball player.
But seriously, Dr. "A" did commend us on how great Landon was at behaving in all of his office visits. He never cries while we are there (well except when he gets his shots, but understandably so!), but just looks curiously at his doctor during the "exam." What can I say, I'm proud of my sweet boy! Oh, and he always gives Dr. A a smile before we leave. He'll go back again for his 12 months checkup in September.
Yikes. Did I just say 12 months? Where has the time gone?!
Speaking of time... it has been getting away from me with regards to starting my little "business." BUT! I finally went out and bought the wood for it, and Dad cut me a piece last week. Last night I FINALLY picked out the paper I wanted to use, and just went for it - got it covered before I went to bed. I don't want to share it prematurely, but be on the lookout soon! I'm hoping to finish it this weekend. Then I'll post pictures, and (hopefully) get some orders off of the first one. :) I have so many ideas swimming around in this noggin of mine, that it is hard to sit still! I want to be out shopping and getting stuff for it, and doing it. --but there's that whole "patience is a virtue" thing I forget about. Must. Put. Into. Practice.
Anywho, once I finally get it posted I want honest opinions...and hopefully they won't be too brutal!

I can't believe Landon is 9 months old today! Oh, and remember how I said he was almost crawling? Well, he has been doing the whole army crawl (dragging himself with his arms) for a few weeks now, and then just last night, he got up on his hands and knees and just went for it!
He is also pulling up and standing at the coffee table, in his crib, at his jumperoo, and pretty much anywhere else that he is able to grab onto something and pull up. We go to the doctor next Tuesday (the 14th) and I am so excited to get his "stats." He has the best laugh, and is now "talking" all the time. He says "dadadaddadadadadada" and "mamamamamamamamamama" and other silly little things too. I don't think he recognizes that he is saying "Daddy" or "Momma" --rather just repeating what Aaron and I say all the time. :)
This kid can sleep in the weirdest positions! And he moves constantly in his sleep. He is never in the same position I put him down in when I go to get him up in the mornings. This past weekend we were visiting Aunt Mary's (on Aaron's side) ranch house, and he fell asleep in his pack-n-play:
How in the world he was the least bit comfortable is beyond me!! I did move him to a more comfortable position after we got the picture, but the next day when I put him in the pack-n-play for a nap once we got home, this is how I found him:
|Umm, maybe he's just stretching? hehe|
Moving on... did I mention that we got a new car?! Traded Aaron's little KIA in and got a Dodge Journey. I'm LOVING it! We have already taken it on two "trips" -- once to Palacios, and then to Cameron this past weekend.

|Isn't he handsome!?!|
