where is my baby?

I prepared the best I could...I had no idea how his first haircut might go. The milkshake worked wonders. This is Landon smiling when Brad walked in.
I had no idea Landon liked to look at himself so much. He just smiled and stared at himself most of the time.
His curls are gone for now but I am confident they will be back
Landon's first hawk. I think he looks pretty darn cute
By the very end of the haircut he had enough and was ready to get out
With the loss of hair came a loss of babyness.

I was a little nervous before the haircut because typically Landon does not sit still for anything and is pretty shy about people touching him. However, every so often he blows mommy and daddy away and shows us what a quiet, well behaved, patient, calm, sweet boy he can be. Maybe he was scared stiff but he just sat there and let her do her thing. Everytime she asked him a question he would say, "ohhhh ok" his classic response. He did wince a few times when she was cutting next to his ears. People kept commenting on how well he was doing and I was pretty much speechless...haha:) Oh how I love my Landon.

Is it sad that I was ecstatic that both of my kids ate all of their broccoli for lunch today without tears, bribes, or threats? I have always had problems with my kids eating veggies and fruits since they first tasted candy. I also think it may be sad but also really funny that when I praised both of them for doing so well Laila told me I should take a picture. Apparently she doesn't plan on doing this often?? Anyway, when she told me to take a picture I quickly thought she was right...this must be documented. :)

Big bellies

I went to my cousin's baby shower in Portland on Saturday. We took a few pictures of our prego bellies but this is my favorite. We are both supposed to be having girls. She is Due May 1st, almost 3 weeks before Lydia is due to make her entrance, or should I say exit?
