Happy birthday, Landon!

Today's Landon's 4th birthday and I think he had a great day. Cake, presents, pop, Grandpa and Grandma...what more can you ask for?! He's feeling a little under the weather, but he was a trooper all day.

Today is not only special to me because it is Landon's birthday, but also because I received the greatest gift and blessing on this day four years ago at 10:56 p.m. Not only did I receive the gift of a beautiful, perfect son, but that son gave me the gift of being a mommy...the best blessing in the world.

Happy birthday,'ve come a long way "baby"!

the days are long but the years are short

Landon will turn four this weekend. Earlier this week I thought back to what we may have been doing four years ago this week.

Today was my due date four years ago. I remember walking into work and getting asked "You're still here?!?!" I had thoughts of handing the tiny man an eviction notice if he chose to hang out in there much longer. Matt was coaching junior high basketball and we were both terrified I would go into labor when he was at an away game.

We were ready...the nursery set up just so, every baby gadget imaginable had been purchased, clothes washed, carseat installed, baby name on the wall....("Matt, I changed my mind about the baby's name." "WHAT? Now?...I'll go take down the name from the nursery."), new name put on the wall, bags packed, camera batteries charged, only one thing missing....umm, baby?...sorry to bother you, I'm sure you must be comfy, can come out now! We're ready to meet you!!
