Landon is very curious about everything and loves to get into cabinets and drawers! He said his first word this month which is, "Dada!" He loves to play with balls and his play table that his Aunt Chelle got him for his birthday! But probably the hottest toy at our house right now is Landon's Valentine's balloon! We got it for him before Valentine's Day, and it is still full of helium! Landon just LOVES it! Maybe I'll get him a new one when it finally runs out of air.
We did have a couple of big changes in the past few weeks. Landon began drinking formula full time. This was an adjustment for Landon and Mommy, but we have both done pretty well. Only tears from Mommy one day and that was after the doctor thought his stomach flu was actually an allergy from the formula. I felt really sad about my decision to wean him and confused at why it wouldn't have shown up before. It turned out that Landon just had a stomach bug that was unfortunately perfectly timed to our switch from breastmilk to formula.
The tummy bug definitely gave our house a little trouble this month, but we all fought through it together. Philip and I had to put in a lot of team work to survive!! But we made it! We also had a lot of love and support from our family and friends (near and far).
Overall, this may have been the best month yet! It is so much fun to watch Landon learn and grow...and he's still my little snuggle bug. I can't even begin to describe the feeling of pure bliss when Landon crawls across the room to come sit in my lap. I'm so glad I am raising a mama's boy!
Landon is pulling up on EVERYTHING!
Enjoying the sun on a warm winter day!
Where's Landon? There he is!!
It's cool to stand up in your crib!
Haha! And now the secret at the end... Mommy is trying to train Landon to say, "Mama!" I give him a little bit of Oreo or yummy treat and say "mmm...Mama!" Then I point to myself. Haha! It hasn't worked yet! :)
