Catching up

Goodness, it's been such a long time since Ilast wrote. Our lives have been so extremely busy and by the time I get home, I would rather spend the evening/ nights with my little man and his sweet daddy! Well, since my last post, many new things have happened:

Paul and I bought our first boat. It's not fancy nor will it go fast. We purchased a 22' pontoon boat. When we first discussed getting a boat (B.L. - before Landon), we wanted a ski boat or something fast and flashy. But once Landon came into our lives, we began to look at "family" boats. So after months of researching (we don't do things spontaneously or without all the information necessary) and a few more months shopping around for the best boat for the best price, we purchased a brand spanking new pontoon and got it in the water a few days later. After testing a few infant life jackets, we finally found one that Landon will tolerate. So, now, since the 4th of July, we have spent an entire week at my parents' lakehouse and every weekend on the boat! We would love to have more family and friends join us on the water...just let us know when you want to go out! :)

Before we could get the boat on the water, Paul's brother Luke got married in Huntsville. Not only were we celebrating this special day with family but all three of us were part of the wedding celebration itself! Paul was a groomsman, I was a bridesmaid and Landon was the cutest ring bearer ever - right down to his little suspenders and bowtie (clip on of course). He did such a great job during the ceremony. When he was ready to get down and move around, I sat him down and he happily played in the grass until it was time to walk back down the aisle. Luke and Kristen were such a cute bride and groom, too! Thank you for letting us be a small part of your day!

While we were on our lake vacation, Landon cut his first two teeth! Yay! Surprisingly, he did it overnight (we did know that he was teething) and without any fussiness! I heard all the teething horror stories, but I am so glad that Landon did not have a temperature or incessant crying or anything else during the process. However, we are experiencing a new milestone for baby...separation anxiety. Everytime I leave the room, even if for a second, he begins to cry. It really makes my heartbreak to see him so sad. I tell him that I will be back, but he doesn't understand. I don't like being the one that hurts his feelings, but Mommy does need to get some things done sometimes. How long will this last?
