What we have been up to!

I feel like I haven't written a decent blog post in a while. Things have been pretty busy around here. Here is what we have been doing.
Well first of all Liam is obsessed with cars and we love it. His cars go with him everywhere. In the car, in his bed, everywhere! He loves the movie cars also and just got a Lightning McQueen car which he loves. Liam also moved to a toddler bed a couple of weeks ago and I think what really helped is that he got to pick out the sheets which no surprise were car sheets. Getting him in a toddler bed was a piece of cake. He wanted us in there for one night, but after that he has been falling asleep by himself for naps and bedtime. It has been a major blessing.
Landon is 6 months old! It is crazy how fast time has gone. We went to the doctor last week and he is still our little peanut. He weighed in at about 15 lbs (8%tile) and lost an inch? (.01%tile). I know that he didn't lose an inch but is probably about the same height. He is sitting up like a pro and I think he is going to start crawling soon. He is not sleeping through the night, so letting him cry it out has started. I forgot how hard it was, but it does pay off eventually..hopefully.
He loves eating solid foods and is always trying to eat what we have too.

Liam loves to take the couch cushions off and jump from the couch to the cushions. This happens almost every night after dinner.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Roland had the whole week off so we were able to relax and have some fun. On Thanksgiving day we got out and played with the boys for a little while before the meal and it was so fun.

For Thanksgiving we had some of our dear friends over and it was a lot of fun. It was a little weird since it is our first Thanksgiving not visiting family, but it is fun to make some of our own family traditions.
I had a lot of fun making these little turkeys as place settings. This is about all Liam ate for Thanksgiving.

A few days last week it was super foggy at White Rock Lake and it made for some really cool pictures.

So that is what has been happening. I am still training for the half marathon which has been going pretty well and Roland is finishing up his semester. We are counting down until Christmas break. About 2 weeks until NH and Christmas! So so so excited!

5 months!

Our little Landon is 5 months today! I can't believe how fast time is flying! We love our our little guy! He hasn't been sleeping super well so we are tried some rice cereal today. The picture below pretty much sums up how he liked it. He really did not know what to do. He is starting to sit up on his own and he does flip from side to side although he doesn't do it often. He laughs and giggles and is a happy baby most of the time. And Liam is a great big brother. He loves to make Landon smile and play with him. I feel so blessed to have these wonderful boys as my sons.

Isn't he cute?
The brothers. Do you think they look alike?
