3rd night away...

Alright, I had my day at the beach and now I want to see my baby!  Me and Toph arrived in Wrightsville Beach yesterday.  We took two days to make the trip and I am so glad.  It was a long drive and neither of us are that great at navigating, lol.  We had our GPS and a map this time so we did a little better.  We have been having a good time.  We stopped in Florence, SC the first night and stayed at the prestigious Howard Johnson, the Ho Jo was a little shady to say the least, but it was only 45$, I didn't expect the Ritz Carlton.  But when we got in there the sign on the door said "Attention: look out the peep hole before allowing anyone to enter" and had 2 big locks.  SCARY, but I was too tired to care much.  We woke up on Sunday and only had to drive about 2 hrs and that was nice.  We got here and checked in and had a little beach time.  Today, Toph went to his conference and he said it was as boring as watching paint dry, lol.  He said they were having a dinner after the conference, but when he got back at the end of the day, he said the last thing he wanted to do was hang out with all of them at night too!  I felt a little guilty while I layed on the beach and enjoyed the pool.  I read an entire Jodi Piccoult book, Sing You Home, I don't know why I keep buying her books.  They are always about sensitive subjects, sometimes I don't agree with all her ideas, but she opens your eyes to subjects people would rather not think about... Next on my list is the new Nora, I can always relax to some Nora.  :)  Oh me, I am so boring.  We went to eat at a place called Oceanic, it was really good and I had some good ole fried shrimp and oysters.. MY FAV.  I enjoyed the ocean breeze and some good food.  I miss my little guy so much, we have Skyped and that helps.  I know I will be better for taking a little time to unwind and getting to spend a little quality time with Tdaddy.  Sometimes you get wrapped up in everyday and don't give your marriage enough time and energy.  I am thankful for being able to take this time to relax with him a little and find out I can still be a good wife and be "the unstressed me".  I will be a better mother for it, and I know my little guy is being spoiled as we speak.  He has some wonderful grandparents on both sides that love him as much as we do.  I am a blessed person and thank God for all the many blessings He has given me.

Sweet Summer Time

I LOVE summer.  We have been having so much fun swimming and playing in the sprinklers.  This is the best time of year in my opinion, I know it's hot, but I love it!  Landon cries to go outside and when we come in, he starts crying bc he wants to stay out.  He freakin' loves it, lol.  I have got him in the pool  everyday for about 3 weeks.  I can tell he is improving every time.  He is fearless, which scares me, but I guess that is good for learning.  We start our official swimming lessons in July, but I have been using a few books to help me teach him a few things.  He loves to come to the side and jump off into my hands.  One things for sure it wears him out and he is so tired when he gets through.  He usually takes around a 3 hour nap after swimming. 
Me and Toph are going to Wrightsville Beach, NC next week and I am excited to go, but I know I will miss my baby.  It is a work trip and we knew he couldn't ride for 12 hours so it will be our 1st time to leave him that many days.  :(  I am excited to get to spend some time with T-daddy though, we didn't do anything for our anniversary and this is kind of gonna be our anniversary trip :)  We were married 2 years on June 20th... We have had such a busy 2 years.  We had Landon 10 months and 10 days after we got married, lol....  It will be nice to enjoy each other for a few days.  I plan on eating lots of seafood and laying in the pool the majority of the time. :)  Toph will be gone during the day, and he said, "what are you gonna do all day?"  I told him not to worry about me, I'm sure I could manage, lol.  I have never been to this beach, but I'm excited to see it.  We are staying at the Holiday Inn Resort and it looks nice, so we will see :)

Note from Mom, your 13 Months Old!

You just passed your first year and went on into the 13 month of your life Landon!  I have kept you alive, lol, for 13 months... I'm just kidding with you Landon, you are a good baby boy.  Your personality is so bubbly and everyone wants to stop and see you in the store because you smile at them so much!  You are fun just to sit and watch what you do, you are really funny..  You smile and laugh the most when your outside, you LOVE outside.  You know we are getting ready to go somewhere when I put your shoes on and start waving saying bye bye and out... Out kinda sounds like Owt,  You love to talk on the phone and when it rings you think you need to answer it and talk.  You love the pool and want to drop things off in it and then go get them, so I stay in the pool, you throw, I get you, and we go and get whatever it is you have thrown that time.  You like to find the lawnmower and try to crawl up on it, bc you know I let you ride that ONE time :)  Your favorite toys are your Thomas the Tank push toy, Thomas Book that makes noises, and your horse.  You try to feed pooh your bottle and then you put Pooh on the horse and try to drive him around.  You like climbing WAY 2 much, you want to climb up any step you see.  You climb up on top of the fireplace and sit there and watch TV.

Your favorite TV Station is Sprout.
Your favorite  shows are dirtgirlworld, Thomas, and Nina and Star
You take a morning nap and afternoon nap most of the time for about 2 hrs. each
You still drink your bottle, but we are cutting back on them
You like Apple juice
Your fav food is mac and cheese
You have around 8 or 9 teeth
Your hair is getting thicker and ligher
Your body is looking more like a little toddler, this makes me happy and sad :)
You love to drop things through any kind of hole you can find, especially my TV stand
You have been dancing up a storm and singing (your version) when songs and music come on.
You say dada, mama, out, hello, and some more stuff that I haven't really figured out yet.
You don't like to get your diaper changed, but we are working on that
You usually wake around 7
When we say cheese you smile really big

As the months go by you bring joy to my heart and continue to amaze me with all the stuff that babies do.  You will always be my baby boy even when you get old...  You are my heart Landon Jacob Wilson and I sure hope you think I have done a good job with you one day. 

Love you sweet boy...

fav toy


I have had a wonderful birthday!  Landon and I chilled out at the house and played today and then when Toph got home we went to eat at Red Lobster with my parents.  It was a great day and it has been the best year yet of my 28 here on Earth!  Now, I am trying out my new computer, that has an ENTER button, yipee!  Toph is on the old one, lol... Bless him, it is zebra, but he is watching about Auburn going to see Obama so he can suffer.  I'm watching some Lamar and Khloe and he loves my show just as much as I love his, lol :)

What a splashin' good time

Mom, Lexi and I took Lan Man for some shopping, food, and splash fun today in Tuscumbia.  What a wonderful day... Landon was such a good boy today and enjoyed his day so much.  We went to a few stores downtown and then went over to the park to let him try out the splash pad.  Total success!  He loved it and went around that place like he was around five.  Lexi and I went in with him and I found two little kids that liked me very much, they didn't leave my side, Landon on the other hand was everywhere and didn't want his mama stomping around after him.  He is Mr. Independent.  Some kid touched his belly, which was stuffed from Frank's Italian, and he looked at him like, "Dude, don't touch this belly."  It was hilarious!  Then we went on over and let him ride the carousel, and he grabbed that horse like he had ridden one for years.  Such a big boy :)  I am so tired, we did some swim stuff when we got home and he loves it.  I bought a book called Water Babies and it gives you some tips on how to teach them to swim.  He loves to jump off the side and throw rocks in the pool!  Stinker.

It is SO hot outside!

I am sitting here on the bed after going out to get the mail and I am sweating!  Oh my goodness, it is so hot... I think it is supposed to be 101 tomorrow!  How am I gonna survive this heat with a toddler?  I don't think the heat used to bother me as bad, but now, I have to catch my breath and sit down for a minute if I carry Landon anywhere.  Zumba I need you or something, oh wait maybe just a little Aquafina ;)  I'm waiting on Toph to come home and we are headed to MS for our friends Mark and Paige's wedding.  I'm excited for the new couple and a little wedding fun.  Mom and dad are keeping Landon and he was excited for a weekend with Granna and G-dad.  I will miss you sweet boy...

Our T-daddy is 31!

I love my husband so much, he is the sweetest, kindest, and most generous person I have ever met.  He works so hard for us and we love him and appreciate him more than he could ever know.  He turned 31 today!  He had to work a 12 hr. shift at work, bc one of TVA's units is still down or something.  But, he was in a good mood and walked into a surprise party!  It was so sweet, I even saw tears in his eyes and that made me want to just bust out crying.  I love him to death!  Landon loved it too, he wanted to play with the balloons, and wanted his daddy to wear his birthday hat. :)  Me and Landon got him a Polo shirt that he had been wanting, and he really liked it.  And, he LOVED his ice-cream cake bc that is his fav.  Mom and Dad helped cook him a meal and then we all just hung out and played with the main man, Landon of course ;)
