Leland and I sat in the living room and watched TV while we ate our pizza for dinner. Don't worry, he had vegtables before his pizza!
**If it does not play the first time, press play again. If it is slow, press play again and it should play correctly the 2nd time!**

It's official! Leland is finally crawling, everywhere! Jason and I's world has just changed, dramatically! Our house is small, so that is not really a good thing with a crawler! It is hard for me to even walk to the kitchen without him going over to the TV cabinet and trying to get into the doors!
The baby pool worked very well to contain Leland at the lake, so we bought one for the house. I'm not sure how quickly he will figure out that he can crawl out of it, but it does have pretty tall sides, and I'm hoping it will work for a while :)!!
You can definitely tell that Leland soaks up anything you will teach him. Thanks to his GiGi, he now knows how to open and close cabinets, doors, etc. He does know the difference between open and close and will usually do the right one on command. He also pushes the horn on his push car when we say, "beep beep", and he knows how to turn on his train and music box!
Leland is still a very mellow child. I can take him anywhere, anytime of day and not worry about him fussing. The only time he gets ill is if he is tired or hungry. As long as you either put him to bed or feed him in a timely manner, he is good to go!
He is also obsessed with his blue blankie. It goes EVERYWHERE we do! He has always been a good car rider, but I don't care if we are getting into a hot car, he wants his blankie! He is so obsessed that I bought a second one as a back-up because I wash it every couple of days. Instead of a paci, he puts his blankie in his mouth to go to sleep. I have no complaints in that department! I would rather a blankie over a paci any day now that he has teeth!

We had a great 4 day weekend at the lake for Memorial Day! It was a great, relaxing vacation that actually went by slow, which is a good thing! Leland did very well. He stayed on the dock with us the majority of every day. We put his pack-n-play on the pontoon boat, so he played and napped there. He also was in heaven with a baby pool on the dock. He LOVES being in the water! He also loved "driving" the boat!
We had some close friends down and it is always great to spend time with them!
The baby pool doubled as a play pen for the living room!

- Jason and I were married on March 1, 2008. We are each others best friend and wouldn't trade our lives for anything! Jason was born and raised in Newnan, GA and I was born and raised in Birmingham, AL where we now live. We have an awesome family that is always there for us. We had a beautiful baby boy, Leland Matthew, on July 22, 2009. He is now growing like a weed and so much fun! We have a very hectic life, but we love it! We take everything that God gives us and deal with it the best we can. We know he has a plan for our family and can't wait to see what the future brings!!
