Landon Adrian

Our precious little boy, you turned two yesterday. WOW! I can't begin to tell you the emotions we've been through during your course of life so far. I can clearly recall our stress and anxiety that we had for the first six months of your life. We just didn't want you to be in pain. As parents, we wanted to fix it, but just couldn't find a way!

And now? You're a crazy little, loving, entertaining two-year old! You make us laugh more than I thought any toddler could! I think you have your Uncle Elliot's goofball jeans ;) Although you can be very naughty, as soon as you're around babies (you call them all "Baby Levi" after your cousin) you are incredibly precious, gentle and calm! I actually asked Aunt Kate the other day if I could borrow Levi sometimes, since you're so well-behaved around him :)

We affectionately call you our "Sour Patch Kid." As you can disobey, hit and yell one moment and be affectionate, cuddly and loving the next. We can already tell that you are a very emotional little boy. When you get disciplined, it's not uncommon for you to cry for five to ten minutes following... not the, "Whiny, I'm upset cry," the "I can't regain my composure and calm myself down because you hurt my feelings," cry. Which inherently makes it very difficult for us to discipline you! So without further ado, I'll admit that you have both of us wrapped around your little finger, especially with those big blue eyes of yours!

You arrived so quickly, your face and body were blue for quite some time!

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
