Christmas Day

It was so much fun to celebrate our first Christmas as a family!  All the fun started the day before Christmas Eve as we began visiting our family and had dinner with the Henderson's.  MeMaw cooked a fantastic meal that we enjoyed before we opened all of our gifts.  Landon wasn't too interested in his first Christmas.  He slept while we opened gifts.  :o)  I think it was more for mom and dad!  The day of Christmas Eve, we went to church, and then over to my grandparent's house.  My mom's side.  After opening gifts with all the McGills, we then went back to Udog and Cici's house.  :o)  Cici had wonderful drinks and lots of snacks for us to munch on.  We opened gifts and then played mexican train.  Uncle Russell and Aunt Katie taught us all how to play the game.  That night, we got home very late.  Way past our bedtime anyway.  Christmas morning was wonderful as a family.  About lunch time, we headed over to the Rayburn's Christmas.  Landon was extremely well behaved and actually let everyone hold him!!!  We were sooo excited about this!

Christmas at Conne's!

We just got back from Canyon Lake visiting Jacy's mimi, Conne.  We were very nervous about our first 3 hour road trip, because Landon is not a fan of his car seat.  He could not have been better.  He did so well in the car not only going, but also coming back home.  We arrived @ Canyon Lake about lunch time on Saturday.  We sat around the house and had lunch and chatted with Jimmy's brothers and sisters.  About 4:00 we started to head to Gruene for dinner.

We had a great time like we do every year and really enjoyed seeing the family.  We can't believe Landon is celebrating his first Christmas.  He got to open his first gift from Mimi.  He got the cutest pair of little crocs.

Eating cereal for the first time....

Fun Christmas pics...

This picture TOTALLY describes our family....CRAZY!  Wow, you should have seen us trying to take it.  I had to give Landon a bottle because he was crying and put it behind my back the second before we snapped the shot....good times, good times!  :o)

Landon's Dedication

Sunday, December 13, Landon was dedicated at church.  He behaved so well as the preacher prayed over each family.  He wasn't camera shy at all.  After the dedication, we all came back and had hamburgers at our house.

Landon's 1st Thanksgiving!

Wow, I can't believe Landon is 18 weeks old.  We go to the doctor tomorrow to get his 4 month shots.  :o( We are very excited to see how much he has grown.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year.  Jacy, Landon and I went to my grandpa and grandma's house to eat the day of Thanksgiving.  Jacy then headed to Uvalde with his family to hunt for the weekend.  Usually we go together to hunt, but this year we thought Landon was a little young.  We can't wait until next year when he is walking and gets to go with us to Uvalde!  It is going to be a blast and will be here before we even know it.

Just recently Landon is starting to roll to his side.  He loves for you to talk to him and know he is in the room.  If you don't talk to him for a while, he has this little cry that reminds you, "Hey, I'm here!"  It is so funny.  He has also discovered he can blow bubbles and make a gargling noise.  He loves to listen to himself gargle.  He has started to laugh and likes when you dip him down like he is falling.  He LOVES it!

We are having so much fun watching him grow and just can't believe what a blessing he is.  He truly is a miracle!

For Halloween, Jacy, Landon and I went over to mom and dad's house.  The Henderson's joined us along with the Holz's, the Foster's and Uncle Russell and Aunt Katie.  Landon did not take to that many people in one room very well, so we decided to take him trick-or-treating.  He LOVED it.  He was a big hit in his little pumpkin outfit.  We went to 5 or 6 houses and then headed back to the house.  Uncle Russell and Aunt Katie joined us trick-or-treating.  We had a lot of fun and let's just say mom and dad enjoyed the candy!  By the time we got home he was exhausted and slept well that night.

Since he started going to his sitter this week, he has slept through the night the entire week.  We just can't believe it and needless to say, we are all in a better mood around here since we have been getting enough sleep!  :o

It's a Beautiful Morning!!!

We have some GREAT news....Landon slept for a full night last night!  WAHOO!!!!  He went down for bed at 9:30 and did not wake up for a bottle until 6:50 this morning.  About 4 a.m. we heard him moving around, but I just went in and readjusted him and he went right back to sleep!  Oh Happy Day!  Tonight we are going trick or treating with memaw, pawpaw, grandma, grandpa, Aunt Katie and Uncle Russell!  We will post some of our cute halloween pics soon.

All Bundled up to take a morning walk outside.

Little Landon

Yesterday was not a good day for little Landon.  He woke up Monday morning not acting like himself.  He was not sleeping or taking his bottle well at all.  Thank goodness for daddy, because he is the one who thought Landon should go to the doctor.  Come to find out, Landon has two ear infections and is very congested.  I am so glad we decided to go to the doc.  You can tell he is in a lot of pain, because he cries when he takes his bottle.  This morning when he woke up, he seemed to be a little more happy.  Hopefully the medicine will continue to make him feel better.  For now, all he is doing is sleeping.  Poor thing can't breathe at all.  Keep him in your prayers!

On the bright side, Landon now weighs 12 lbs 3 oz!!!

Pumpkin Patch

This morning, Jacy, Landon and I visited the pumpkin patch.  We know Landon did not know what was going on, so it was more for mom and dad, but we had a great time enjoying the beautiful weather. They had train rides, hay rides and lots of fun games, so we know Landon will enjoy all the activities next year.  We picked out 2 big pumpkins to carve and set out on the porch.

First Wedding as a Family!

Last night, we went to our first wedding as a family!   Let me just tell you what a BLAST we had.  Landon was so amused when we first got there from all of the lights and fans that were around him.  He had the best night of rest he has EVER had.  He slept for a 7 hour stretch!  We just couldn't believe it.

Bellville Parade

Today was so much fun.  Landon went to his first parade.  We had a great time with my grandma and grandpa and mom!  The parade took about an hour and 20 minutes.  It was pretty long and lots of loud noises.  Landon was really good but wasn't too fond of the fire truck sirens.  After the parade we went to lunch and then out to the Blue Moon Saloon!!!
