Getting Ready to Crawl

Landon has started getting up on his knees while he is on his tummy! I am getting really excited. Yesterday while playing on the floor he pushed up on his knees and was also pushed up on his arms! He is getting so strong and is practicing how to crawl. He just needs to put all of the pieces together, and he will get it and just take off crawling here soon. Scott, myself, and Carol our Doulah all think that he will be crawling around 7 months! My sweet baby boy is growing up and getting big way to fast.

We are still working on sitting up. He can sit up for between 10-30 seconds before having to have help. We are working on it and hopefully he will be sitting up soon. Especially since Landon has know out grown his infant car seat and we are now in a convertible car seat!

In other news we are going on a family vacation this year! We are headed to San Diego in July and I am super excited about it. We will be going to the zoo, and coincidentally it will be Landon's first trip to the zoo! We are also going to go on a harbor tour, and probably a few other things to be decided later.

Happy Father's Day

The boys with Daddy on Father's Day

Scott grilling on his new grill! See those yummy steaks? They tastes as great as they look!

Yesterday Landon celebrated his first Father's Day with Scott! Zach also celebrated with us when he got home from hanging out with Grandma. They all had a great day. Scott recieved a new Charcoal Grill and Smoker! Landon and I "helped" him put the grill together, we made him breakfast, and then Grandma and Great-Grandma came over for dinner. We grilled steaks on the new BBQ! Scott also recieved a baskin Robbins Ice Cream Cake, his favorite :o) Here are some pics from Father's Day. I really hope that everyone had a wonderful day yesterday, and Happy (late) Father's Day to all of the dad's out there!

5 Months

Landon turned 5 months old yesterday! Time has gone so quickly, I cannot believe he is this big already. We saw the Pedi yesterday and he is between 27-28 inches. They couldn't get a more accurate reading b/c he is so squirmy now-a-days. We didn't get a weight b/c we were only there for shots. It looks like we are going to have to invest in a new carseat. The infant seat only goes to 29 inches and Landon has been know to grow 3/4 inch in a week to a week and a half! I think we are going to get the Graco My Ride car seat, we are going to go by Babies R Us and take Landon and have him try it out and see what he thinks.

In other news I recieved my Ergo Carrier yesterday, and of course we immediately had to try it out. I absolutely love it. It makes carrying him so easy, he can see out, it's comfortable for him, and most importantly it is comfortable on my back. I could carry him around all day in it without a problem. Scott and I go on walks at night and I always put Landon in a carrier b/c it is way easier than trying to navigate the stroller. I will post pics of us with the Ergo tomorrow or the next day when I get the chance between our busy weekend and doing my last homework assignment for school for the week.

Scott and Zach put together Landon's Jumperoo/Exersaucer on Sunday night, and he LOVES it. We put him in it and he started jumping right away and playing with all of the toys. He smiles, and squeals with happiness and it is so much fun to sit and watch him play. I am so glad we decided to put this together so he could play in it. It is also very good at wearing him out. He was in the Jumperoo this morning for about 30 minutes, and he took a 4 hour nap! From around 8:45 a.m. to about 12:45 p.m. only waking twice to eat and then falling right back to sleep! I took a nap with him, and let me tell you it was heaven to get some much needed sleep during the day, especially that much sleep! For those who don't know I have started co-sleeping with Landon in the guest bed until he falls into a deep sleep and then I put him in his crib, so he is still sleeping in his bed 90% of the night. Well, for our naps in the morning I lay with him carefully and make sure there are no sheets or pillows any where near him or his face. It works out really well b/c he loves to snuggle up and sleep with me, and I just love the snuggle time with him! Anyways, without further rambling here are the pictures of my sweet baby boy in his Jumperoo/Exersaucer thingy:
There is so much fun stuff to play with here, did you know how much there was to explore Mom? Check it all out, I will show you how it works!
Wow! This thing is super neat, Mom.

Daddy showing him all the cool things on his new toy...He's a ham for the Camera though!
