My poor little broken camera had such a hard time giving me the pictures it had on it. :) It took a couple of tries, but we got them!!
The first one is our Christmas picture this year in front of our Christmas tree. It is the only picture out of the many we took where all of us are looking at the camera and smiling without our eyes closed or making a funny face.
Landon and I took a pretty good picture together...don't we look so cute! :)
Then Landon and his daddy...they are like two peas in a pod.
Apparently Landon thought something was funny. I thought this one was super cute after I looked at it. He's sitting in the rocking chair that I had as a little girl. I guess we're going to pass it down. :)
Below are a couple of pictures that we took of Landon in his Christmas pjs. The one on the right is Landon's first gift of the day, a guitar that my mom gave him. It's actually really cool cause it plays real songs instead of things like "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star".
Landon did really well this Christmas. Santa brought him a climber that looks like a tree house and has stairs with a slide. He hasn't gotten the hang of the stairs yet, but he LOVES the slide. He's already learned how to go down by himself. He got a Little People airplane and airport that he's been learning how to play with. He also got lots of clothes, which are greatly appreciated. Can't have enough, you know? All in all, Christmas was fun this year. I can't wait to see what he's going to do next year! He'll definately get more into it and we might actually get to go see Santa. :)
We love you all and hope you have a Happy New Year!!!

I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas! I know we did!! Landon had a blast opening his presents. He learned that the paper does rip off, but he was confused as to why we weren't getting mad at him. After he would rip some of the paper off he would try and put it back on. :) It was super cute.
I do have some unfortunate news though...my camera died...for good. I thought that maybe it was the batteries that I was using, and Braydon bought me some brand new ones to use in it on Christmas morning. Unfortunately, it wasn't the batteries after all. I got a couple of pictures on it, but then it died, so I have to figure out a way to get the pictures off of the camera. After that, I will post them.
Braydon and I actually went camera shopping today, and bought a new one. It will be here in the next couple of days so I will take some pictures of him and post those too. :) I can't wait! :)
So....that's all I've got right now. I'll get those pictures posted as soon as I can. Thank you for a wonderful Christmas!

I hope everyone is ready for Christmas....I know I am! :) We have all of these wonderful presents under our tree that people have been sending us (thank you by the way) and I can't wait to see what Landon does with them on Christmas! We've already had him trying to open the boxes that everything was sent in. It will be a fun day!
Landon has been fighting off his first cold of the season, and somehow passed it on to Braydon, myself, and one of his nurses. I guess that's our fault...maybe we shouldn't be lovin' on him so much. :) He's getting better though, just some coughing from his runny nose.
If you don't know already, Landon has been learning some sign language to help him communicate with us. He's been doing really well with it and has already learned quite a few signs. We started out showing him "eat", "more", "all done", and "help" which he picked up pretty quickly. We've more recently taught him the sign for "bird" and is gladly showing us that sign for everything in the house that has a beak. :) We were going over some animal sounds with him using some flash cards. We came across the elephant and I showed him how to raise his hand up in the air like an elephant's trunk, and now he will do the motion upon request. I was amazed how fast he picked that one up. I'm going to need to study more signs to teach him cause I'm running out of material for him. :)
Well, I just wanted to send a little note out there. We hope everyone enjoys the holidays, and even though we aren't there in person, we are there in spirit. Love you all!!!

Hello everyone!! We just wanted to share the adventures that we had with Landon when we put up the Christmas tree. We have a remote that turns on our lights to the tree and we let Landon play with it. He had a good ol' time turning them off and on. Enjoy!!

I've put up a couple of more recent pictures. The top picture is from Thanksgiving. We gave him a leg from the turkey to see what he would do with it. He mostly pointed at it and wasn't really sure what to do. But it made for some cute pictures. This was the first year that he was able to eat some table food. He enjoyed eating the turkey that PaPa made and jello that our friend Pyper brought over. The next day he became more fond of Nona's mashed potatoes. Just more proof that he is my child! :)
The bottom picture is one of the random ones that I took when he was playing. His nurse, Heidi, and I thought he looked so grown up in this one. It was also a day where he kept his glasses on. Those are few and far between! :)
Well, that's it for now. We have some other stuff going on before the holidays, so I'll keep everyone updated. Keep us in your thoughts!
