A note from Mommy 14 Months

I didn't get to finish my last post and I am just now getting around to writing it, we have been so busy, time flies when your having fun.  Things that you like to say are:  Oh yeah, water, bottle, mama, dada, Granna, love you and some more that I haven't figured out what you are saying yet. I have enjoyed watching you grow SO much, it is something different everyday and I am trying to soak it all in, you have a sweet personality and you are always on the go.  You love your toys and have recently been bringing me books for me to read to you. Your favorite toys would be any type of train and you love watching Thomas!   You love to get into the entertainment center and scatter your dvds all aroud!  We are working on this ;)
While we are rocking at night you sing with me (I think this is to help you stay awake, but it is so sweet.  You also like to play with my ear.
You are Mr. Independent and would like to do things on your own...sometimes that is good, but sometimes no... All I know is that I love you SO much little buddy, you are the best thing ever!

Mom's note to you! 14 Months...

A toddler is like the beginning of all things- wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.   I truly believe that twenty years from now I will be more disappointed by the things I didn't do than by the ones you did do. So I try to let you dream, discover, and explore.  I try so hard to let you explore, I know that a perfect summer day to a little boy means, a scrape on the knee, mud on his face and collecting bugs in garden, but mama is still worried all the time :) I get sad sometimes when you go to sleep at night, because I know you will be a day older and one step closer to growing into a big boy...  You make my world worth living sweet boy and I am always excited to see what the next day brings :)  Don't get me wrong, we have some hard days, when I am tired and you are tired and we all need a nap :) Sometimes I catch myself wanting to make you the best person you can be, and I really just need to enjoy the time we are spending together.  Every moment doesn't have to be a learning moment, just as long as we are together and I am getting my cuddling in!  You have taught me many things since you have been born; unconditional love, patience, and understanding.  I am so excited to share all kinds of fun memories with you sweet guy!  I am going to make another post for all your accomplishments and things you like to do :)

Dentist, Yuck

Well, I had been having some trouble with my tooth for a while now.  I went to Tamsy about 6 mos ago with it hurting some (just when I bite on something hard) and she sent me to Dr. Smith the root canal guy.  He told me he wasn't for sure what it was, but it might be from internal decomposition.. He told me to come back in 2 weeks, blahhh... I didn't want a root canal so I didn't go back :(  Well, I went in for my cleaning today and the spot has grown (it is very uncommon) and if I don't get it fixed it might break off!  Wow, that got me moving, the next step would be a bridge and there is know telling how much that would cost, blah.  So hopefully they can save my tooth with the canal.  I don't like people in my mouth.  I have had perfect teeth ever since I was small, no cavities or anything, you don't realize how wonderful that is until something like this happens.  I don't like people in my mouth, but I want to save my tooth, so I head back to Dr. Smith next week.  Wish me luck!  The extra $400 doesn't make me happy either, I could find lots of stuff I would rather spend it on!  It could abscess 2, and that wouldn't be good.  I highly reccomend Dr. Tamsy at Coker Family Dentistry, she is SO nice, and if you don't need something she won't try to make you think you do.  I really like that.  My friend Lauren works there and she can set you up an appointment if you are looking for a nice family dentist. They say the internal decomposition results from a trauma from the tooth or your teeth moving at a fast pace, they think it might have been from my braces??? I don't know, the lady said she has only saw it once in 17 years (great)... Well, anyway... if you see me toothless you know I ran out of money, LOL... I told Toph I would get me a flipper like on Toddler and Tiaras, he thought that was hilarious.

Just another Lazy summer day!

Toph, Landon and I have had a relaxing weekend at home this weekend.  It was so nice to be home with nothing to do, but exactly what we want to!  We don't have many of those here lately.  Nae came and kept Landon for me on Friday and I took a day out for myself.  It was so nice, mani/pedi, a few errands, and just a little window shopping.  I worked in the yard after it cooled off some that afternoon and just pittled around, yes pittled, I don't know how you spell it or if it is even a word, lol.  We have swam all day today and I look like a lobster... I must have needed 70 proof like Lan Man.  He loves the pool, and when I say love I mean he is in HEAVEN when we swim.  I think it is so crazy that I have a one year old that wants to run as fast as he can and jump in the pool (over and over).  He would love to get on the diving board, but I draw the line there.  He gets up there and starts jumping and I have to say NO NO Landon.  He tries me about 3 times and then he just collapses, bc he knows I have won ;)  Go mom, lol.  We start our official lessons next week and I am excited to see what he learns and how to go about teaching him.  He is fearless.  I make him wear his swimsuit life jacket thing and he hates putting it on, but it makes me feel better.  It gives me time to get to him when he starts barrelling toward the side to jump.  He likes to get stuff and throw it in and then jump to get it.  We are going to put up my storm door 2morrow and get a few other chores done and chalk up our weekend to pretty successful :)

A baby is an angel whose wings decrease while his legs increase

I am more in love every day with this sweet little child.  Oh my goodness, he melts my heart when I see those little teeth shining when he grins at me.  Don't get me wrong, we have our moments when we are seeing who's will is the strongest, MINE!!!  He doesn't like the word no, but I don't think I have ever cared for it much either, lol.... He forgets so easily and wants to curl up in my arms when he thinks I am mad at him, he might know how to butter me up already ;)  We had a wonderful Independence Day with my family.  Landon loved the fireworks show at Athens High School.  We went to the Early Works Museum today in Huntsville and Landon wanted to stay so bad.  He loved the ducks so much!  I got my photos of our family back from HMP and I love them.  I will treasure them always!
