22 Months

Landin at 22 Months:

• Weighs 30lbs, not sure of height yet but still really tall for his age

• His words are crazy now! He actually talks in sentences now and it still creeps me out that he is that old.

• Knows all his body parts

• Knows most animals but refers to them by their sounds (cat=meow, cow=moo) but he does say puppy, horse, duck

• Knows the colors blue and orange

• Working on counting. We have gotten to 3 but he says 1 and then the rest is mushed together

• Still loves to clean and do chores - is a super helper

• Eating is somewhat improving. We still have therapy every Monday but we have noticed slight progress with him. Still no meals that he will eat but the snack food is widening :)

• Started to become interested in the potty and likes to sit on it. Be careful if you come to our house unannounced though because he has to take all his clothes off to go (socks included). Our therapist Vicki found this out the hard way Monday when he came running out naked :)

• SUPER ACTIVE!!!!!! Not kidding you the kid never stops! Ask anyone…they always comment on it!

• Started at a new baby sitter this month and loves it. If you ask him how his day was he says "Good". IF you ask him what he did he says "ball".

• Since the last post he has had his arm cast removed, been to the ER for croup, and had tube surgery…we have been busy :)

• Favorite activities: running, running, running, hiding from "puppy", not sitting still, "tooking"=cooking, washing the dishes, taking a "bat"=bath, watching "Helmo and Bit Birt"=Elmo and Big Bird or the "oh oh oh"=Curious George

I will say that besides the eating situation Landin is a blast right now! WE are desperately longing for some warm weather to get this kid outside but the new house has made the indoors all that much better :)

January 2010

I have been following blogs for about a year now and I always find something inspiring about each one of them.  I decided that I need to step mine up a little bit and so I will be trying to post on here more often about all sorts of things.

Every month I want to do a 'month in review' so that I can look back over our year together.  So here goes January...

January was cold, cold, cold.  We didn't do a whole lot this month but it seemed we were still super busy.  Here is my little cook working hard in the kitchen.  (He likes to cook to ladies :)  This little man loves to bake and wants to everyday when we get home. 

We took a lot of these this month to 1) keep us warm and 2) to entertain us!  For those of you who don't know Landin well...he never stops!  He always is in motion, always has to be doing something, and his attention span is about 1/2 second long.  IN other words, the bath is the best thing for him :)

"A smile on the face is a sign that the heart is at home."

This month we also got to go and see his cousin Ava!  They are two years apart (April 7th and April 18th) and they always have a blast together!  Landin loves to chase her in circles and Ava always ahares her toys with him.  I hope they always grow up to love one another the way they do now.

January was a long month to say the least, but as we get closer to April we are going to try and enjoy our time indoors with one another.  February has some fun things coming up so I can't wait to share them with you all!
