10 Months

10 Month Highlights:

  • He's about 21 pounds.  Logan was almost three pounds heavier at this point!  
  • Still exclusively breastfeeding.  He's eating anything he can get his hands on.  I don't think we have found anything he doesn't like. 
  • Wearing size 4 diapers and 12 or 12-18 month clothes.
  • Still sleeping in the Merlin suit with his arms out.  
  • He crawls everywhere, but would rather stand up and cruise along the furniture.  He can stand without holding on for a few seconds, but then realizes what he's doing and flops down
  • He loves to hold the remotes and make the TV do crazy things
Pictures: *I think I posted some of the pictures on the 9 month post  that should have been here.  Oops!  

Brother feeding him

Logan had a trip to the ER.  Thank goodness everything was fine.  He loved the special attention

Chris was home with Landon and sent me this picture.  He said he came down stairs and he was passed out in his highchair like this. :)

Landon and I took over Logan's bed one night when he wouldn't stop crying. He finally passed out!

9 Month Pictures

We are so very blessed to have the talented  Megan Davidson care for Landon and we are even more blessed when she surprises us with pictures.

She dressed Landon up and took him out for his 9 month pictures.  Goodness, he's handsome!

Landon - 9 Months

Yikes!!  How did I get so behind?  Oh I know, I have two kids, a husband, a house and a job.  Whew!  Having a few minutes to sit down at the computer just doesn't happen anymore.  I'm hoping to catch back up so that I have these posts to add into a book for Landon.

9 Month Highlights:

  • He had his 9 month check up and weights 19lbs. 10 oz.  He is 28" long.  He's right at the 50th percentile.
  • Still exclusively breastfeeding although I'm struggling to keep up with pumping and coming up about 2 ounces short each day.  Luckily, I have a freezer full so I'm able to use that instead of supplementing with formula.  He's eating 2 4oz bottles while I'm at work and eating baby food and some finger foods at each meal.  He loves the Yo Baby yogurt, goldfish, baby food pouches, Ritz crackers, chicken noodle soup and lots of other things.
  • He's sleeping great in his crib.  He goes down right around 7:15 and wakes up around 5:15 to eat.  
  • He's wearing size 4 diapers and 12 month clothing.  
  • He had his first hair cut!  He looks like such a big boy!
  • We lowered the crib all the way down.  
  • He is still sleeping in the Merlin sleep suit.  At some point he's going to out grow it, right?
  • He loves to say, Mama, Dada, and Babababa
  • He crawls all over the place and loves to climb the steps.  He even knows he's not supposed to.  He starts going and looks back and starts laughing and scooting up the steps even faster. 


Thanksgiving at Granddaddy's Lake house

The Elves found Logan, Landon and Mackenzie.  The left quite the Welcome Breakfast!

Landon was called a girl one too many times, so we decided to get his first haircut.  He did great and loved the animal cookies we were feeding him. 
The Logan and Landon comparison. 

We took a trip to New Orleans right before Thanksgiving.  We keep busy with the zoo, the aquarium, the insectarium, parks and of course great food.

The love they share is simply beautiful.

America's Funniest Videos!

Several months ago, Mimi and Pop went to New Orleans and came home with some live crawfish for the boys to play with.  Logan and Pop were playing and I just happened to be recording them during this hilarious moment.  After pains in my stomach from laughing so hard, and people continuing to tell us to submit it to America's Funniest Videos I decided to give it a try.

A few weeks later, they emailed us and said the video had been approved, and they would let us know if it ever got scheduled.  I honestly had forgotten about it and several months later, I got another email that said, it had been chosen for the upcoming season, but they didn't know what show yet.  Several weeks later, I got a voicemail that said our video had been scheduled for the season premier!  We were so excited to get the news and couldn't believe Logan and Pop would actually be on TV.  

We didn't win the $10,000 but Logan seeing himself on TV and the free shirt they sent him, were prize enough for him.

We sent a video to our family to remind them to watch.

Landon - 8 Months

8 Month Highlights:

  • I tried to weigh him at home and I think he's right over 20 pounds.
  • We've made it 8 months of exclusive breastfeeding and we are still going strong!  He's eating 2 4 oz bottles while I am at work along with baby food and yogurt.
  • We decided a few night ago to let him cry it out a little in hopes to get him to sleep better at night.  He has been waking up every hour to hour and half.  I'm exhausted and crying it out didn't sound so bad.  The first night was a little rough but the second night wasn't quite as bad.  The third night he slept 9-5!  That was the longest stretch to date!
  • He's wearing size 3 diapers and 12 month clothing.
  • I'm trying to transition him out of the Merlin Sleep Suit.  I've been putting just his legs in and leaving his arms out so he can flip.
  • I had to lower the crib down one notch.
  • He loves scrambled eggs, frozen waffles, yogurt any baby food.  He still loves his water from his straw sippy cup.
  • He's babbling and loves to say Dadada.  I'm still waiting on Mama
  • He is officially crawling and doesn't stay in the same spot for more than 2 seconds.  
Big Brother was on America's Funniest Videos this month!

You can't really see it, but Logan has his finger in Landon's belly button!
