Mommy Wow! I'm a Big Kid Now!

Landon turned 5 months old a week ago today. I can't believe that he is already almost 1/2 a year old! The past 5 months have flown by faster than I remember them going by with the girls, partly because the days and nights sometime blend together with the lack of sleep, and partly because life has taken on more of a frantic pace with three kids schedules to tend to. He is getting to be such a big boy and has already cut his first tooth and started to roll over (although I have discovered that he often lacks the motivation to roll because he hates being on his stomach!) It has been fun to see Landon's personality emerge and to see him become more engaging and interactive. He always wants to be right in the middle of all the action and gets upset if he is left alone for too long. Or maybe he gets upset because he is afraid to be left alone with Brooklyn, who loves Landon a little too much sometimes. We love this little guy a lot, and since I have not been very good at posting pictures of Landon as he has grown, here is a smorgasbord sure to incite baby hunger!

Hard to believe he started out this small!
