"When a soul recognises the will of God and shows a readiness to submit to it entirely, then God gives Himself to such a soul and renders it most powerful succour under all circumstances." - Rev. Jean-Pierre de Caussade

Oh, pictures

I feel like I have something to say but nothing is coming to mind. So I'll just post pictures! :)

Most of them will have both Landon and Marley in it, because the dog has been so jealous lately, she's always in Landon's space. As you will soon see...
Sleeping babies. Happy momma.
Marley seriously stole that little parrot and tried to run off with it. We've already found a few of Landon's toys "buried" in random parts of the house. Crazy dog.
The dog doesn't care if Landon is in my lap...she will climb in too. ALL.THE.TIME.
Um, sometimes the cuteness is just too much. :)
We try to go for walks as much as possible - Marley follows me around the house until we go, and I need the exercise anyway. Plus, Landon LOVES outside (even when it's cold!). So it's a win-win-win!
Ahhh. If I put a blanket out, Marley will play on it. And sleep on it. And get in Landon's way.
Marley is so jealous that she's been jumping up in bed with us in the middle of the night.  And I promise that Landon was not hurt in this next picture...he was just fussy all of a sudden. I just thought it was a pretty funny picture :)
Marley is really very sweet with him. Promise! 
And well, Landon doesn't quite know how to treat Marley just yet. 

Those are pictures off my phone, and I really need to upload the ones from our camera because there are some good ones! I try to take most pictures with our camera since it's better and all, but sometimes my phone is wayyy more convenient. Especially since I can easily text them to grandparents. :) (And easily post them on our blog. Yay Blogger app!)

I feel like all I do now is post pictures. (Maybe because I do!) Everything I plan to write about kind of leaves my brain when I actually start to write. I'm working on that...

Yay for the holidays

We had a lovely Thanksgiving day and day after. Yep.

I almost always have clothes on this little boy, and I realized how fun (and majorly cute) it is to have him just go with a diaper for a little while. Love the chubbiness!
But eventually we had to bathe him and put some clothes on for Thanksgiving lunch. ;)
Logan's mom (AKA Landon's Noanie) took a picture of Logan in this same pot when he was a baby, so we decided to reenact it with Landon. The kid was loving it.

Teething, ahhh. Although sometimes it is cute when he tries to put everything in his mouth... :)
We made plans to decorate the tree and all Thanksgiving night, but a certain tired mother (ahem) went to bed at 8:30. So the decorating (and cleaning) commenced on Friday. Basically, Logan decorated and I cleaned (Logan is the decorator and I'm not ashamed to say it!).

Check out our awesome stockings! My cousin made them and I love them! And yes, I am totally on the ball with Christmas shopping. Yay.
All the excitement wore the little buddy out. I love these moments!
We're eagerly awaiting the start of Advent! One more week!

Since we're just going to teach Landon the story of St. Nicholas instead of having "Santa Claus" bring presents, I want to do something special on the feast of St. Nicholas. Suggestions would be appreciated. :)

So thankful!

Today we are so incredibly thankful for our family, especially the newest addition! We're also very grateful that we are all healthy. I know that's something we take for granted sometimes...

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We'll be having lunch with Logan's family and then coming home to decorate for Christmas. :)

St. Cecilia, pray for us!

Photo Shoot!

Logan's brother, Tyler, took pictures of our little family yesterday. The main reason for the photo shoot is for Christmas cards, but I'm also very glad to just have pictures of all of us - usually I'm the one taking the pictures!

We just took the pictures outside our house, so it's nothing fancy. But I'm not complaining because it was FREE. :)

 Sometimes this kid is just too cute!

 I hope this mischievous look isn't a sign of things to come ;)

Play time

Landon started rolling over last week! And now that's all he does. Let the baby proofing begin...(I am so not ready for crawling yet!)

Since he's moving more, I've been laying down a blanket for Landon with a couple toys more than I have before. And I'm being reminded of why I didn't do it much the last 5 months. Marley thinks it's her play time too. Sigh.

In a couple months, I'm sure the roles will be reversed - Landon will be annoying Marley!

Growing boy: 5 months

Yes, I'm on a roll today with taking his picture early. Let's thank Monday morning motivation for that. :)

How is this little boy 5 months old already??

Picture time!

Now that I finally uploaded our pictures, I can share some from the events in the last post (Although I don't have any with Landon and my grandparents other than the one already posted because I forgot to take some :( Thankfully my mom remembered to take a quick one with her phone right before we left!)

Without further ado...Captain America!
 Logan made the shield with the top of a formula can. Because he's awesome and creative in ways that I am not.
 We're hoping to take a picture around Christmas with Landon's 3 cousins also dressed as Avengers. Oh yes.

We had a great time at a friend's wedding!
 This is my new favorite picture. My guys having fun :)
 And here are just some other ones I've taken lately. Landon has many ways to occupy himself these days. His mommy is thankful!
If you look closely, there is most definitely drool hanging from his mouth. Yep.
 We're borrowing this jumperoo thingy from my brother's family, and Landon loves it - especially now that he's figured out how to jump up and down in it. It's so cute. :)
