Christmas is near!

 Oh my goodness, it is almost Christmas, ONLY 3 days.  I can't wait, I think I have all my shopping done except one or two things.  I'm cutting it kinda close, but I'm going to town tomorrow and should be able to finish up.  The only bad thing is the Christmas crowd always seems to take a little of my spirit away, lol.  I know most of the people that come out, only come out once a year, and you can tell.  I have to slow down, take a breath, and breathe in all that Christmas cheer... ;)  Landon is ready for his 1st Christmas, we got him all ready to go.  I know he won't know much about it this year, but he loves things that make noise and he is going to get A LOT of them... I knew I said I wasn't going to overdo it, but he is so much fun to buy for.  He is feeling better, still a little congested but no fever for a couple of days.  His little cheeks get red and I have to put vaseline on them.  We also have to keep pants on his little legs bc the carpet is so rough and makes them red.  I bet he thinks that I don't EVER leave him alone, bc I'm always after him to do something to him, lol.  I have to keep him suctioned and he HATES that....  I need to get a pic of him actually getting it done, whew, he would probably knock my camera out of my hands though.

He has loved playing with his toys.  He has a leap frog bus, but he WILL NOT let the frogs ride in it.  I put them in, and he takes them out... Over and over.  He also likes me to sing "Shake it up Baby Now" into his backyardigans microphone, he thinks it is hilarious.   

These are his favorite food, gotta keep them stocked!

I keep these done up, when he wants milk he wants it THEN... :)

He loves to look at himself, so I got my full length mirror out of the closet and let him play.  I then push it behind the couch because I'm afraid of him breaking it and getting cut.

Poor guys doesn't like his meds so I mix them in the bottle where he doesn't spit it back out at me.

My shrine, I am going to have to get a bigger table!

Landon goes to sleep on his own now, I lay him down, he lays his head down and goes to sleep... This is WONDERFUL.  He is still in the room with me and Toph and I am fixing to move him to his room :(  This will be a sad day for Mommy, but it is getting close.

Merry Christmas from the Wilson's

I did 2 Christmas cards this year.  I ordered some from HMP Studios and did some from Tiny Prints.  I loved both.  I send out around 100 Christmas cards each year and this year I was so tired of cards.  That is just A LOT of cards and addresses.  If you didn't get one in the mail, I probably messed up on your address, lol.  So here is some Christmas cheer from the Wilson fam.

1st Sickness :(

Poor Landon is sick for the very first time, yuck.  I have been dreading the day, but I knew it would probably come sooner rather than later.... Yesterday, he just acted like he was tired all day and had some rosy cheeks, so I figured he was getting what I had earlier in the week.  It put me in the bed for 2 days and I DO NOT like to lay around, so I knew I was bad.  I went to the doctor and they told me I had pre-pneumonia and a bad sinus infection.  I had a fever though, so I knew it was probably contagious.  My mom helped out with Landon and I got better.  Then, he started acting sick so we decided to get up this morning and take him on to see Dr. Moore.  He was running a fever, had chest congestion, and an ear infection (which was brought on by the nose thing)??? Not really sure, but we have an antibiotic and he seems to be improving.  I sure hope he wakes up and wants to play because I'm not used to a sleepy headed little one.  Bless his little heart.  I would stay sick, if it meant him being well.  :(

7 Months and Going Strong :)

Landon Jacob Wilson you just turned 7 months old!!!!  I can't believe it's true, it really feels like I was just having to put you in your seat for the first time ever.  To tell you the truth some days have flown by as others have felt like they lasted a lifetime.  You love to grin and play, and make mama trail behind you every step of the way, just in case you get wobbly when you pull up and hit your head, lol.  But, sometimes your belly hurts, or your teeth are coming in, or you hit your head and you are an unhappy camper. 

You are eating up a storm, you love to eat, that is for sure.  You have cut down on milk, but you like fresh bananas, cheese puffs, all baby food except green beans, oatmeal, rice cereal, juice, well those are most of your favorites.

You have 2 teeth on the bottom, and I think some more are coming in on top because you constantly run your tongue over your gum, your drooling, and a little more fussy than usual at times. 

You don't take a passy and haven't for a couple of months, but you have started using your sippy cup by yourself.

You are pulling up to the couch and anything else you can get a grip on.

You LOVE your reflection.

You like Micky Mouse Playhouse the most.

You are wearing a size 3 diaper.

You went to Chattanooga with me and your Daddy this week, and you liked the aquarium the most. 

You love playing in the floor with your toys and me playing with you!  You like to watch me be goofy with all your animals, because you think it is SOOOO funny.  I catch myself saying things to you that are not very age appropriate, lol, I have got to work on that. :)  Your mom's crude humor is going to come back and bite her in the butt, if I don't stop now, :) 

Your growing like a weed!  More hair, longer body, larger foot, EVERYTHING!!!  It is amazing how much the body grows within 7 months.  But, you have one sweet little body and I love every hair on your head big guy!  You are my number one and couldn't imagine my life any other way.  You haven't been sick yet, and I am feeling kind of under the weather.  I think it might just be another sinus infection, but I worry about you getting sick constantly.  I know I have to hand things like this over to God, and let it go, because after I take all the precautions I know how to, it is in His hands.  So goodbye burden, I am leaving you here.  Also, for those of you that might be reading this, tomorrow is my husbands first real day of his new job, please pray for God's guidance for him and His help with new job anxiety.  I love you Toph, you will do great!

The Aquarium with my Family

I have enjoyed this trip so much.  It was nice to get out of Killen, Alabama with just my sweet little family.  I have got to spend some incredible alone time with my baby boy while daddy was at work.  We played in our room most days, took a few strolls, took a lot of pics, and had a wonderful time.  He does new things everyday and I am so blessed to be able to watch him grow into the person he is becoming.  Writing this makes me sad, in a sense that this trip is over and the next trip will probably be a lot different.  They grow up so, so fast and I want to hold onto time and let him be my baby so much longer that God allows.  I wake up and kiss those sweet cheeks every morning and I fall in love with him all over again.
Tonight, we ended our adventures with the Tennessee Aquarium.  Landon loved looking at all the fish, he was amazed but all the movement and wanted to touch the tanks.  That brain was working in overdrive trying to take everything in.  I love him so much.

Day 2

We had a great day waking up in Chattanooga.  Little man slept all night and when he woke up he was still sleepy so he slept with me for a little bit.  I ordered me some room service and ate and Landon played around.  We got kind of stir crazy in the room so we went out and strolled the grounds of the hotel and took some pictures.  When daddy got home we were so happy to see him and I was starving!  Landon went off to sleep while we were driving to eat, because he wasn't wanting to take a nap ( I guess his new surroundings were making him feel like he didn't need a nap.  I think we are going to go to the Hamilton Mall 2morrow, so I am excited about that.  :)

We made it!

Landon did great on the way to Chattanooga.  He was really tired, but didn't sleep much on the way down.  He watched his Barney video and just chilled out all the way.  He got a little fussy toward the end and I put my head down where he couldn't see me and he went on to sleep for about 30 minutes.  When we got here he was mesmerized by the fireplace and the tall Christmas tree and was just making sweet noises like "wow" that is pretty.  We didn't do much except unpack and order a pizza and and Landon went to bed pretty early.  I don't know how this time change is going to affect his sleep schedule, but I sure do hope he sleeps all night.  I hope we can stay on a good schedule, but we will see.  Toph has to start his meetings tomorrow, so me and Landon are gonna go check some things out.  I hope we don't get bored. :)  We are staying at the Chattanoogan and it has a few places to eat inside, so I know I won't go hungry.  Here a few pics from when we got here, I hope to get some good ones tomorrow by the big tree.

A Day in the life WITH my husband :)

We have had such a good time since he has been home with us.  We really didn't do much except hang out and install our new Christmas present.  Toph bought him a TV for the living room so I got to get me a piece of furniture for it to sit on.  It's not here yet, but I'm excited for it to come in.  I love being at home... I have lots of stuff I need to get busy on in the house maintenance part, but they are coming slowly but surely.  Our windows will be installed in January and then I think that is about all we are going to do to this house, because we are going to try and sell in about 2 years. I don't know where we will go, but we have some time to figure it out.  Landon was so sweet today about going to sleep.  I bought him this reindeer that sings and he was holding it and just conked out on a pillow.  That used to NEVER happen, so I call that progress.  Sweet boy, he is tired and we are changing his schedule on him... He is getting good, I can't get over how smart they are at 6 months old.  He is pulling up to stuff and then gets mad that he can't get his legs up and actually get up there.  I see a climber in my future.  Oh me.  Other than that, we are going to watch the game at the Delay's 2morrow and the Sunday we are heading to Chattanooga for a busy week.  I hope everything runs smoothly.

Sleeping habits

 pullin' up got to be prepared!

Landon you did so much better last night, you went to sleep around 9 and slept til 7 am.  You didn't even cry when is was time to put you in your bed!  Nap time was not as easy but you are getting the hang of it, you cried for about 15 minutes and slept for about 2 hours during your afternoon nap.  We played and had a good time and then about 2 hours later you were ready for bed, I knew this bc you rested your head on the pillow.  This is getting better... So happy :)  I love you little muchkin, you are so funny.
