18 months old and I feel even older

So it was another one of those absolutely beautiful God made weekends again. The sunshine was bright and it was in the 90's both saturday and sunday! Saturday we went to Dillon's opening day baseball game, which by the way makes me feel SO old to see him and Derrick all grown up. It's so weird that Derrick was only a few months younger than Landon when mom started keeping him, and she had Dillon from the time he was 6 weeks old until he went to school. Ahh, it's so strange to see them so grown up. Well Landon wasn't the least bit concerned with staying out of the sun so he was red from head to toe. He also had a big weekend, turning 18 months old and all. SO hard to beleive. We'll be having a 2 year birthday before I know it (or before I'm ready for it!) So we played outside all afternoon, went to Walmart, then stopped by to play with Evan, Hannah & Chyanne for a while. We decided to take the kids to pizza hut, and all I can say is its a good thing we were the only people in there!

Derrick was so good to play basketball with Landon the whole time. He thought he was hot stuff playing with the big boys!
He even thought he could dribble the ball, he was definately entertaining!
There's my Dillon, all grown up playing 3rd base.

Now I tried ALL weekend to get a picture with Landon smiling, and out of the million pics I took, it never happened. This one just shows how blue his eyes are, so I had to post it :)

Jonathan went fishing after work on Sunday, but he came up to his mom & dad's when he was done. Landon gets excited to see him, and I'll admit, sometimes I do too ;)

Time to cut the grass..

We stopped by the Funeral Home when mommy got off work and PawPaw was mowing the grass. Well he let me help him! I had so much fun riding on the lawnmower and he even let me stear for a while!

For today, we are All Hokies

It's been 2 years since the terrible tragedy at Virginia Tech, and on this anniversary I made sure me & Landon were part of the Hokie nation and wore our maroon & orange. I of course wore my VT scrubs to work, and all of Landon's hokie clothes were too small. Then I remembered that Emma's mom (Ashley) made him a Very cute shirt with his initial and cute little Hokie feet on the back! Its great to see all the Hokie support throughout the nation. For today, we are ALL Hokies! *4.16.07*

I'm finally enjoying eating things other than chicken nuggets and french fries, as you can see, I had sphagetti & meatballs last night! I kinda made a mess, so mommy let Elsa & Oscar lick my legs to clean me off. Is that bad?!

Easter Sunday

I couldn't find an Easter basket that I wanted for Landon, so I decided I would get him a sand bucket, something he could actually use if we go to the beach this year. And I decided against putting candy in it, just a few lil toys. Elsa was also interested in what he got. Now I had to get a picture with his shoes showing. What 17 month old insists on putting on his new shoes before coming down for breakfast? Mine. He LOVES to get new shoes, and I finally found him some boat shoes on Saturday. I think he was excited as I was

"Holy cow Mom this car makes alot of noise!"
This is the ONLY picture I got with his Easter outfit on, and of course its not all that great. By the time we left church the coat was off and from playing in the nursery he was a little dishevled. Notice we got yet another haircut on Saturday, I'm thinkin this is like #6? haha

And at Mamaw's house he thought his easter basket was a helmet...
After a quick nap we made it up to Grammy & PawPaw's. PawPaw was at work so Landon was a little disappointed by that, but he still played basketball with the boys for a lil bit..

Only in Cov

Only in Covington will you follow the Easter bunny in a John Deer down mainstreet..haha..

Fun Times on 3 Wheels

Lewis thought it would be fun to see how fast he could go off the hill behind Grammy & PawPaw's house...(Round 1)

The Next Evil Canival

Kids don't try this at home...Lewis did this more than once and some wipeouts were worse than others, but he kept getting up thinking it was hillarious, and would go up higher on the hill to come down!


Well I thought since Lewis could do it, so could I! I just needed some help from PawPaw

We LOVE sunshine!

Well Sunday was the most awesome day we've had in a long time! We went to eat lunch at Mamaw's then got the dogs and went to Grammy & PawPaw's house to play outside all afternoon. Well I played outside for like 5 hours just running and playing and getting into everything I could! Here I am playin on Grammy's little bridge over her fish pond. All I need is my own pole and I could catch all of them!! "Arritt Funeral Home, Landon Arritt speaking".... well thats what I heard in my head, but mommy said it didn't quite sound like that...
Lewis riding on his bike we got him for his birthday, it sure did look like alot of fun!

"hey Mom, I'm gonna try it out ok?!"
This is pretty easy, I could get the hang of it!
Elsa loves going to Grammy & PawPaw's too because her and Oscar can just run free all day...

This is what happens when Mommy doesn't let you crawl up onto the table top. Serious meltdown.

I forgot how to walk..

We went over to Evan's house last night to help his mommy work on putting pictures on a blog and on the EB website. He looked like he was having alot of fun in his walker, and he liked me playing with him. Maybe it's because he's used to have all girls around and he just needs a guy like me to hang out with! Well Evan had enough of his walker, so I thought I would be a baby again for a little bit and try it out. Mommy says she couldn't make me get in mine when I was little, but I thought I would just try it out for a few. I was also gettin pretty sleepy if you couldn't already tell..
