Something to make you...

SMILE!!!!! Seriously, how can you not look at this face, in this hat, and not smile? If you figure it out...I don't want to know. Honestly. Don't. Want. To. Know.
Because this makes me smile and laugh everytime I see it! I must thank my coworker, Ernestine, for the adorable hat...that I often put on my sweet child's head...just. to. make. me. smile. So, I thought that I would share the joy with you...SMILE!

Hi's Landry!

Can you believe that I am already 8 months old? I know Mommy and Daddy can't...they keep telling me to stop growing but I don't think I'm going to listen to them. So what have you been up to? Here's my newest picture with my lion: Well, here's what I have been up to the last month:
  • I had my very first Christmas. I'm not really sure what it was all about but everyone loved on me and kept handing me boxes that they wanted me to do something with.
  • Did you see my two teeth? Yup, I have two now and I am working on some more.
  • I love to play with all of my toys. Mom thinks it is pretty cool that I will keep myself busy so that she can clean-up the house.
  • Have you heard me talk? What about blow bubbles? Those are two of my favorite things to do right now. I love to scream, grunt, squeal, talk, giggle...and of course blow spit bubbles. Everybody thinks its pretty funny!
  • I've decided to hold off on the crawling thing for the moment...its a lot of work! So, instead I just pull myself along the floor like an army soldier. I love it when Mommy or Daddy hold my hands so that I can stand up.

Here is another pic of me...just a bit closer: If you look closely in the next picture you can see one of my teeth...I don't really like to show them off yet but Mommy is pretty persistant.
I gotta go to you soon!

It's a Date!

My dear friend Erin and I have a bit of a ritual of meeting at Starbucks so that we can catch up on life together. Years ago we actually met every Wednesday so that we could keep up with each other. Now that life has gotten crazier for both of us we get together as much as possible...sometimes a few weeks go by...sometimes a month or two...but no matter what, we make an effort to get together regularly!
We have been friends for several years now...we worked together for a bit, she was one of my bridesmaids, and then we ended up getting pregnant pretty close to one another. It was so fun to be able to share pregnancies stories with each other...and now we share our stories of "mommyhood!"
This morning we had one of our Starbucks meetings and it was the first time that we had both babies with us. It was so much fun to hang out and watch our little ones show off their tricks. Here are Landry and Amy...enjoying their first...of many..."Starbucks Dates!" Just hanging out on the bench...enjoying the nice weather.
I love this shot of them looking at each other!
I absolutely treasure my friendship with Erin and am so proud that we have stayed close through life's many twists and turns. I cannot wait to watch these two grow up together and for our families to continue to grow you, Gunstreams!
