How fast the time flies!

Landon Facts:
-has 8 teeth
-started walking on June 24, started running 2 weeks after that
-25 lbs.
-can say "all done", "daddy", and "hi". (Now I feel badly about this because I don't actually know when he said his first word, or what it was. It took me a while to understand that these were actually words that he was saying. They may only be words that I understand, but he is definitely saying them).
-I CAN"T believe that it has been a year already. It went by WAY too fast!

Dear Landon,

How do I even begin to describe my feelings for you! We waited so little and so long for your arrival. We were chosen really early in the process of everything, but then had to wait such a long time! You were obviously very happy cooking in your tummy Mommy because you were really late, induced and then had to be pulled out with forceps. Your delivery was not very easy on your tummy Mommy and we were really worried about her for a while there. She is such a trooper though and very strong. I know it is from your birth parents that you get your strong will and body.

You are such a charmer and will use your delicious smile to wrap anyone around your little finger. You are fiercely in love with your big brother and are constantly mauling him with hugs and kisses. I am addicted to your bear hugs and your smile. I love when you grab a book, give it to me and plop down on my lap for me to read to you. Landon, you are a moose and just bulldoze through our house everyday. I haven't seen much that can take you down! You have a very curious mind which I know will serve you well once you learn to channel it towards things other than throwing stuff in the toilet. Landon, you are one of the most incredible kids I know and I can't wait to see where life takes you. I can't believe I get to be your mother ... how lucky am I??!!!!

Happy Birthday Baby Boy!!!!!

VERY SWEET letter to Landon! What a fun personality he must have. I loved how you posted a picture of him every month. How fun to see the progression one month to the next.
