This past weekend we celebrated a very much belated birthday for Chad. My cousin, Tina and her family were here so we had a nice little afternoon at the pool. The weather was incredible and it was just good family time. Lots of laughing and cutting up!
In an effort to a picture of the boys with Honey before we left below is all we could come up with. Landon was experiencing an energy burst of some kind and would not sit still.
So I know it has been a pretty long time since I posted an update on this thing. My excuse- Life. I've been enjoying spending time with my sweet boy and family. Last time I updated we were getting tubes in Landon's ears and might I say that is one of the best decisions we have ever made. Knock on wood - He is a totally different kid now. It is truly amazing. Nose stopped running, acid reflux stopped and the ear infections haven't returned. Truly amazing. With all that I have just been enjoying my little guy. Hearing his laugh fill our home is just pure joy. I don't think a greater sound exist. With little man turning 18 months at the end of the month is causing me to realize more and more that you don't truly understand when parents say, "it flies by" until you are there. I can't tell you how many times I've heard that and I was like yeah yeah...Well, yeah yeah it does. I just want to take in every minute I can. I never thought about babies having much of a personality but clearly they do. Landon is awesome. He makes Chad and I laugh so hard sometimes. He's just a nut like his parents.
I know this is not much of an update but it's all I have right now. I got a text from a friend tonight telling me I was a blog slacker so this is for you my dear!
I'll have a better one after Landon's 18 month check up :)
This is Landon at school - This is Landon loving being at school :)
I have totally been slacking on my blog here lately. I'm not going to give excuses and explain why I haven't. I'll give you one word and leave it at that, LIFE.
So much has happened. So Chad and I made our biggest purchase since our house the weekend before Mother's Day and I must say I am LOVING it! A 2012 Ford Explorer in the best color their is (GO DAWGS!) There is so much more room then my Saturn and that was extremely apparent when we took our trip to the beach last week :) Bittersweet to say good bye to my sweet bright blue saturn but it was time. A Mom and Dad bought my Saturn for the daughter who was graduating and I really hope she is able to create as many if not more memories as I did with that car.
We took Landon for his first trip to the beach last week with our friends, Brandy and Chris. They have a little boy named Walker who is about 2 months older than Landon. Let me first say that wow - Vacations are not the same anymore! Ha! It was so much more work going down to the beach or even just the pool. I don't know what I was expecting but I'll just say there was no beach time with my book! We had a great time with the boys at the pool :) We took them to the zoo and that was a lot of fun. I think they really enjoyed that! Little man got his seventh double ear infection while we were down there so we came back a day early :( I won't go into all the details of how we met with an ENT on Wednesday and are now having tubes put in his ears next Thursday :) I think this is going to make him the happy little boy he is trying to hard to be. His ears we're so bad the ENT couldn't do the test on them. We are hoping the inflammation and infection go away before next Thursday. So that is where we are. It has been a crazy month of May but we are finally heading in the right direction and for that I am grateful! I'll try not to have such a lull in between my next post.
Married my best friend on April 19, 2009. New home owners:) We welcomed Landon Thomas Reichert to the world on January 30 and he is amazingly awesome! I work at Chick-fil-A Coporate in the Marketing Department. I am on the Sponsorship & Event Marketing Team. I enjoy reading, watching old movies, cooking, Rachel Ray, and I am hands-down addicted to The Bachelor/Bachelorette:) My favorite all time movie is Roman Holiday. I could watch it everyday and never get tired of it. We love to cheer for the Georgia Bulldogs!! I love spending time with my husband, family and friends:)
