Easter Basket Fun

Aside from Christmas I think Easter is my second favorite holiday.
L wont remember this year at all but splurging on a Pottery Barn Easter Basket was a must for me. 
I figure he will have it his whole life- because we will be that family that still hides Easter eggs until he is 30.
Pottery Barn Basket & Liner. Goodies all from Target.
The little soft books are amazing for Teething FYI he shoves the whole book in his mouth. Win Win.

We also have a few new outfits to add to the basket.
My most favorite memory of Easter when I was a little tike was coming down the stairs and seeing my new Easter outfit- I just couldn't wait to get all prettied up. I have a feeling L wont have the same enthusiasm for the love of a new outfit throughout the years but that wont stop me from buying him one!

A big milestone in our household this week...
We are officially sitting up in the tub

I am not to sure why this took so long but we had to buy the yellow sponge for him to sit on because the mini tub is so slippery. Speaking of the mini tub we still have him in it because he looks so grown up because the big tub takes so long to fill up. Needless to say we are loving bath time these days.

Dog Owners... Help

L is super duper OBSESSED with Tybee...Tybee is not super duper obsessed with L.
He will do anything to yank touch the dog and this morning Tybee got a little mad. 
I am not sure if he would actually bite him or if he would just nip and give him a piece of his mind? 
For now I guess I will try to keep the wondering hands away from the pup until he has a little more control over how he handles himself. For now I am using the words NO and EASY a lot which mean nothing at the moment to L.
Everyone with dogs are you totally comfortable leaving the baby around them? Is this just small dog syndrome?

7 months

What the _____?!?!?!

7 months?

I think this is the first time in oh I dunno Landon's ENTIRE life that I have said this month flew by and he was an absolute joy to be around.

I am not going to go all crunchy mom alert on you that is a post for another time. However I can say confidently that it is due to the Amber Teething Neckless. Again I will do a whole separate post on this but it does work 100%

Health: He had his first ear infection about 3 weeks ago. Poor bugger ran a 103.8 temp at 3am, if that doesnt make you run around like a frantic loony toon I am not sure what will. When we called the on-call service they said to just give him Tylenol and re-check it in 45 mins- thankfully it went down to 101 but we kept an eye on it closely.

Sleep: This is on and off still. He is going down between 6/7 sometimes 730pm (thank you daylight savings time). Some weeks he is completely knocked out until 1/130am and I just have to quick feed and he goes right back down until 6/615am. Other times he rolls to his back 3-4 times a night (which freaks him the F out) and starts screaming, eating the bumper, or throwing the blanket on and off his head- in which we have to go in and roll him back over to his stomach. I have no words for his sleep patterns and would like any advice on this flipping to the back situation. I could tie him down to the crib? Duck tape him? Velcro? 

Weight: No problems still- he is starting to stretch out in length but we might need to be upgrading to the "big boy" car seat soon

Likes: We are still loving the Cartoons. Also he is now sitting up in the bath and recently found out that if you smack the water it splashes everywhere so bath time is a fun activity. Grunting big time, like trying to poop grunting but he isnt actually pooping? Does that make sense? Its not the most pleasant sound but he enjoys it so it is what it is. 

We have finally after 7 long months figured each out. You smile, laugh, and our a pure joy to be around. Thank you for making this month easy on mommy. 

Happy 7 Months Baby

Weekend Recap

Hope everyone's weekend was fabulous- we got another 23 inches of snow dumped on us on Friday morning

SNOW day it is...
Kid was seriously happy... might not look it...but he was

 He can be doing legit anything and as soon as he hears Mickey's voice he stops dead in his tracks and watches him intently. I think we might have a theme for his first birthday party...

I spy Tybee....

 Saturday and Sunday was crazy nice.
Heat was open..sooo beautiful.
We did a family trip to Target and the grocery store.
It was Landon's first time in his "big boy" stroller.
He was obsessed.
Made me tear up a little realizing how big he is getting

Momma also made time to get her hair done this weekend
Sometimes I wish I could get one tiny itty bitty smile from this kid.
But nope.
This is called a photobomb...thanks bro.
