I am going to go ahead and apologize now becuase I am totally suffering from complete nostalgia these days as we approach the big first birthday. I'll try to keep the emotionally loaded posts to a minimum, but I make no promises.
Each month, I like to go back to the previous year's pictures to see what we were up to a year ago. Here's what I found...
If you keep track of things like this...you might have noticed that my babies are now in their 11th month. Here are a few things for the record book.
*Eli has learned to blow kisses and I think it.is.absolutely.precious.*Landon is just a little more vocal than Eli and he really seems to be trying to make words. We work on "thank-you" a lot and I really think I hear him trying to say it. He says "dad, mom, bye, hi, and uh-oh" on a regular basis, but I've also heard him say boot and thank-you.
*Landon is a little better at sharing...or at least he doesn't get quite as upset about it. He might fight for a toy for a few minutes, but he is usually content to just move onto something else. He's such a sweetie.
*Landon is also taking about 5-6 steps at a time, standing up on his own, and doing the whole squat/stand thing. He's a little more steady on his feet than Eli mostly because he's a little more patient.
*Landon has also gotten a little more lovey and clingy, which I LOVE. I was beginning to think that they could just take me or leave me most of the time, but they are giving a lot more hugs and even kisses sometimes too.
Both Eli and Landon love bath time, eat like champs, give high-fives, have a lot of fun in Bible class, would rather sleep in our bed than their own, and bring a tremendous amount of joy to me and Dustin.
