Oh Baby, Photo Contest

Times Daily is having a photo contest for the cutest baby of the year.  I couldn't resist putting my little cutie in it... He may not be the cutest to you, but I think he pretty darn cute in my book ;)  If you would like to vote for him go here... VOTE FOR LANDON
You have to sign up and then they give you one free vote.  Use it for my lil man :)  I don't even know what you win, except you are on the Times Daily calender.  I believe he is on page six.  They give you a widget you can use to go to him automatically, but it wasn't pulling it up for some reason.

How could you NOT for this cutie???

Landon's Favorite Toy

TrainsI was surfing Pinterest for Landon's love of trains and found a pic of his most favorite train ever right now.  He loves this thing.  He wants me to hook it together 18 million times a day.  You see the blue things that latch them together, I have had to glue them back on around 9 times... He loves it!  It's Melissa and Doug, if you think your little one might like it.

Go to sleep little one
May it be peaceful
May you dream of lovely things
And awake to find them real
Little one

Close your eyes little one
This is your lullaby
The love of God is evident in the miracle of you
Little one...

Thought that this was so sweet, if only it would work... LoL... Landon is currently crying in his crib and wanting out!  Bless him, for some reason he has had a rough sleep week... I hope it is his medicine and will be better tomorrow.  I don't like sweet buddy to cry.  He loves to throw everything out of his crib when he is mad.  Looks like I am going to have to move him to a toddler bed, wow that is scary!  This is a cute collaborative blog for stories that I have found, me and Landon read it to unwind before beddie bye,  I also have been reading blogs about toddler activities and other tricks for the upcoming winter.  I stay home with Landon every day and if we don't have something to keep us busy on those cold winter days, we will go crazy.  On another note, do you follow celebrity bloggers?  I love the Kardashians, much to my husbands disappointment.  He says that it rots my brain, I on the other hand love it!!  I like checking out little Mason on Kourtney's blog,  Well, it looks like Landon has gave it up for the night.  Bless his bones.  We have a busy day tomorrow, so I better hop on in the bed too.  Here are a few pics from our fabulous day at home! 

Dear Landon,
Oh, sweet, sweet, sometimes high tempered, hyper, little one. This has been a crazy time of growth and development for you. It has also been a time of you asserting your iron will and in light of this, I now live in fear of your teenage years.  You remind me so much of myself, it is just plain scary.  I'm hyper, loud, and get excited and delighted over the silliest stuff and man, if you aren't the same way.  Son, we love hard, have tender hearts, are compasionate beyond words, and like what we want when we want it.  It sometimes hard to have battle of wills with you, bc your ALMOST as strong willed as your old mom.  I have made it alright, so I know you will too.  You just might give your mom and dad a few mini strokes.. LoL..
You are now 16 months old! How in the world did that happen? You are growing too fast, my little toddler! You’re apparently much taller and heavier than the average 16 month old, because people always think you’re older than you actually are. They also tell us that you are a stinker and that they bet I get my excercise in, (if they only knew the half of it)  I should be skin and bones, keeping up with you. Ha! They have NO IDEA. You weigh in at about 30 pounds, wear a size 7 shoe, and clothing from size 18 months up to 2-3T.You love your milk and juice.  Your fav snacks are cheese puffs and Thomas fruit snacks.  You love baked potatoes, mac n cheese, cream of chicken soup, hashbrowns, bisquits, Chic fil A, and Mickey D's.
Capturing your whole personality with words just doesn’t seem possible. Well, let’s give it a shot.
  • LOVING. You give random kisses and hugs. You love to grab your blankie and snuggle with us. When you are cranky or in a bad mood, a few minutes of snuggle time in our laps usually brings you around to happiness again
  • FEISTY.  there are times when you are… shall I say, difficult to handle. As a toddler, you are spirited, determined, and not willing to settle for less than you want. You can throw amazing tantrums. One great example would be the carseat.  You don't want to get into your carseat when you have been walked to the car and the car is OUTSIDE, you want to STAY outside... You have perfected a great backbend type thing that prevents me from strapping you in... What do I do you say?  I spank your little leg very gently and you come unglued.  Bless you, we will get through this.. :) 
  • ON THE GO. You don’t slow down often. You run everywhere, and you pride yourself on not being caught by MAMA bear. I have to be very careful with you at playgrounds because you want to do everything the big kids do. You love to be chased, and to chase us in return.!
    • COUCH POTATO. Yep, you love TV. Current favorites are the Wiggles, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and Dora.  

    • CHATTY. Your picking up more and more words since your surgery.. It has helped so much PTL... You said PawPaw yesterday, you love him so much.  You also say alot of gibbering that I know means something to you, but I have no clue.. You get frustrated when I don't understand. 
    • WATER BABY. Oh, do you adore water.. You have no fear and the bathtub is one of your favorite places. You ever try to put your face in the water, too. I couldn't find you the other day and was about frantic..  You usually like to go in the bathroom and play in the toliet (yeah, we are working on this 2), but this day you had climbed in the tub with your shoes on and was rolling your train in the tub, LoL.   You can't enjoy the water as much right now and haven't for a few weeks bc of your ears.  We have to be more careful now, due to your tubes..

    • ATTACHED. You’re very attached to us and you DO NOT LIKE when we walk away from you. If I should leave you for two minutes to perhaps use the bathroom, without inviting you to come with me, you will cry and scream. I am looking forward to the end of this particular phase, as I would very much like to pee in peace. Heh.  You love to grab my finger and "show" me stuff.  You love to show me photographs of people that you love.

    • POTTY TIME.   You’re showing a lot of signs that you are ready to train... You wake up dry most days and take your diaper off when you pee or poop in it.. Gross.. I am showing you the potty and sitting you on it.  Really we are just talking about it and getting you aquainted.  I will be happy about this :)

    • TEETHING. We are anticipating the arrival of your four cuspids (canine teeth) any day now. This round of teething has been tough. It makes you cranky and I can’t wait for those cursed demon teeth to break through!
    • BOOKWORM. About the only time you seem to settle down and slow down is with books. You’ll sit and look at the pictures and it occupies you for quite a while! I love that you’re a reader.
    • MUSIC. You still love your music! You adore singing, especially “Happy Birthday.”  You love for me to turn the music up in the car and you hum alone.  Precious. You also like the Wheels on the Bus and you love for me to act like I am the baby crying.

    • .Trains. You love your trains and bring them for me to attach 100 times a day.  You love pushing them on the floor and on the bed. 

    I love you sweet, innocent baby boy... You are quite literally my life and always will be.  You have brought the meaning of the word love to my heart.  Oh sweet baby, stop growing so fast.  You make me want to cry when I think of how big your getting.  
    Love, Mama

Back from a Blogging Vacation

Well you guys, I am back!!! I took a little break from blog land to kind of relax and get re-motivated to capture our memories. I have so much to share! Landon is now 16 months old and growing like crazy... we are caught up on all our shots now (we did the alternative method and only gave one and sometimes two shots at a time). Landon was having recurring ear infections that never cleared up and lots of problems with his ears, so we or let me say I, took matters into my own hands and we have had surgery this week on his adenoids and tubes put in. I noticed that Lan would hold his ears, shake his head, and not hear some things that I said to him so I started reading up on what might be causing this. I had been back and forth to see Dr. Moore about 7 or 8 times and she kept putting off seeing a specialist and kept giving antibodic after antibodic and it was really driving me crazy. So finally I told her, I knew there was a problem and I wanted referred to Dr. Castillo that day. She said she understood and we were there within the week. Now how hard was that??????/ He noticed some hearing problems, balance problems, and overall knew that surgery needed to be done. He told me that all of this is probably a result of the RSV that Landon had around 5 or 6 months ago... Wow, that was a shocker, didn't realize that could cause this. After the surgery, he told me his hearing would be restored fully and things should be much better around the Wilson household. Bless Landon's heart, he was falling all the time and I noticed that his letters and sounds were not sounding like they should and by the day after the surgery, I noticed a major improvement of sounds and balance... He is the most precious little boy in the whole world, I know I am biased, but really he is so sweet ;) He comes up to me and hugs me around the neck and opens his mouth in a big O and gives me juicy sugar.. Oh how I love that sugar. He wants me to rock rock when he is sleepy and comes to me with his blanket and grins up at me and wants me to whisper secrets to him... I have bought him a train table this week, for his love of trains and he LOVES it. I also built him a tent, where he can hide... He wanted to hide under my chair in the bedroom and it was really small, so I knew he would love it and he did! Today, I missed him and he had went in the bathroom, climbed in the tub with his shoes on and was playing with his trains in the tub... STINKER.. Well, I am tired of typing tonight. I will catch you up some more later. LOVE YA..
