OK....since I can't block certain people from reading our blog, and don't want to make it inconvenient for those that enjoy it (you have to have a google account), here is my disclaimer....

There are certain family members that obviously don't give a damn about us and have never bothered to have a relationship with us or our son. If you can't be grown up enough to move past things and get together, then please do me the favor of never reading this blog again.

If you don't want to have us in your lives and speak to us on a regular basis, then what I post in this blog is NONE of your business.

I will continue to keep this blog updated for friends and family that actually care about what is going on in our lives.

Leland snores like a grown man!!


I still remember this day as if it was yesterday. I can not believe that this sweet, tiny baby is TWO today!!

Happy 2nd Birthday Leland! You are truly the joy of our lives! You are such a sweet and humble boy. You are getting into everything and starting your terrible two's, but you still make us laugh every day!

You are getting a very large vocabulary. Most things are understandable, but some sound like a foreign language! You say please and thank you all the time, which is the sweetest thing in the world!

As I was uploading all of your Birthday pictures, you looked through everyone of them with me and told me who everyone was and what all the objects were...very smart I thought!!

You are still not a very picky eater, but just very peculiar. You LOVE vegetables and fruit, but you love cookies and cake as well! We limit what you eat now because cookies was becoming your favorite word!

You still drink 3/4 water with a splash of juice in all of your cups and you have been on 2% milk for a while now.

You are learning your colors and will say them out loud, as well as point to them. You can count to 5 with a little assistance. You have been telling people you are, "Twos" for a few days now.

You are about 29 lbs according to my scales, but your official 2 year appointment is on Aug 3. I also have to make you your first Dentist appointment. You do not have all of your teeth, but you are getting close!

I am amazed at how fast you catch on to a new trick, and you learn something new every day!!

We love you to the moon and back and wish you many more Birthdays and a lifetime of happiness!

My Dad, Paw Paw, came to visit us on Saturday at the lake. Leland went fishing for the first time with hotdogs...they seemed to fit into the theme of the weekend!

Leland showed Paw Paw how to drive the boat!

Saying, "CHEESE" as I take pictures of the orders I mailed today!

My best friend since childhood brought her 2 little boys up tonight. We had fun playing with Lane and Parker!

REMEMBER TO HIT OLDER POST AT THE END OF EACH PAGE. I have posted TONS of new pics and they take up several pages!

2 year old pictures at Aldridge Gardens

I planned for us to get to the gardens a lot earlier than we did, but unfortunately, we got delayed, so it was very humid by the time we got there! I did get several good shots, but these are the only ones I have touched up and have ready to post so far!

A date with Mommy....

Wednesday I had to take our new car in for service. They loaned me a car and said that I should have ours back by lunch. I decided to stay in Hoover and wait instead of coming all the way home and then back. While we waited, I took Leland to Aldridge Gardens to get some 2 year pictures. After pictures, we were hot and hungry, so we had a very early lunch at Edgar's (our favorite!)

Leland ate all of his chicken and his whole bowl of fruit, so he deserved the sweet treat he begged for...

a huge piece of caramel cake!! He really did pick this cake. Out of the 2 cases of goodies, he kept pointing at the caramel cake.

We were finnished eating by 11 and the car was still not done. I decided that since we were right next to the Rave theater, I would brave taking little bit to his first movie. Thankfully Cars 2 was playing at 11:20 and we made it to our seats just in time for the show to begin.

Leland did fantastic!! He sat either in my lap or his seat the entire time. He kept saying, " OHH"! He loved all the cars and boats as well!

He passed out about half way through the movie, but it was still worth the $7.50. The movie was very cute. I hope it comes out on video, but I believe they are saying it is only in theaters.
