Me,"Landon, you're a goofball" Landon,"No, I'm a ball and your a goof mom."
Landon, "Did we see the North Pole?" Me,"No, that was just some frost from the Schwan's man's truck,"
Kevin,"Don't be afraid of the lightening Landon, it's just God taking our pictures" Lightening strikes again. Landon,"Mom, did you smile?"
Landon,"Is Liam talking to me," Me, "No honey, he is just a baby" Landon,"Oh he just needs new batteries I think."
Me, "What cereal do you want for breakfast?" Landon, "Crappin Crunch mommy."
Landon, "Run they are going to get us." Me,"Who is?" Landon, "Big Bird and Jesus mommy."
Landon, "Stop picking your nose mommy."
Landon, "Does Daisy (the Jackson's dog) have false teeth?"
Landon, "Now pay attention everybody, we are going to space today...."
Landon, "Yeah, yeah, yeah. You got it baby."
Landon to Kevin, "Right on cowboy."
Landon,"I'm probably kind of sensitive mommy."
Landon at the dinner table, "So I'm going to be a daddy soon....but I will be a mommy first and then a daddy."
Landon to me,"Granddad was so happy about me going poops that he was speechless mommy."
Landon, "Honestly mom. Honestly."
Landon, "You are driving me crazy Nanna."
Thunder strikes. Landon runs to the nearest window, looks out, starts waving and says, "Oh hi God."
Landon to April, "God sure is handsome. And he has a brother named Jesus."
Landon to older large lady at grocery store, "Daddy does she have a baby in her belly!"
Landon runs into my room with breaking news, "Larry the cucumber (Veggie Tales) does NOT have a weenie because he is just a vegetable mom."
Landon,"So how does the baby get in the mommy's tummy?"
Landon talking about a mannequin in the ladies section at JCPenny, "That lady has on panties mommy. She looks pretty nice."
Landon, "Tell April thank you mom."
Landon to Kevin, "Daddy, thanks for being my Daddy."
Landon to both of us, "If you eat lots of junk food, you will have a baby. And then the doctor will just help you get it out." (he made this conclusion all on his own)
Landon to me, "Jesus is in my heart mommy." Me, "Well, yes he sure is!" Landon gets a look of concern, "..............did I EAT Jesus???" Me laughing uncontrollably. Landon, "Yumm, Jesus was good."
Landon, "Why does that car have a smiley face on it?" Me, "Because he is happy. Why do you have a smile on your face?" Landon, "Because I love myself."

Oh and he has this push toy that has been like attached to him for the last two months and we were calling it his "Enabler". And we were thinking that we were going to take it way if he wasn't walking by the end of this month, but all of you who thought that was mean will be happy to know that we weren't really going to take it away and now he has proven that he doesn't need it!! Thanks to Aunt Nicci and Uncle Mark for this toy....I'm not being facetious:)...it truly has been a great toy and I highly recommend that every baby have something similar!

#1 The first time Landon was running through the kitchen, slipped on a tupperware lid and the first thing to hit the tile was his chin. Kevin was out of town of course, that's when things always happen to our family, and I took him to a Minor Emergency Clinic where we had a HORRIBLE experience. The doctor was not good with kids, they did not numb him right, they kept messing with it to see how deep it was before he was numbed, and they made me solely responsible for holding him down. Now he was cocooned, (this is just putting their arms down and wrapping them in a sheet very tightly) but I could still barely hold him down. It was like he had rabies, I had never seen him fight like that. I had never seen a child so scared before. Thankfully my mom took Liam during the procedure and afterwards she sat in the car with them so that I could go and sob with out Landon seeing mommy loose her composure.
#2 So then we are on vacation at my Grandma's house in Colorado and Landon is playing chase in the living room. Well he turns to look behind him, trips, and his chin hits the edge of a chair. Kevin picks him, shoots me a look that I immediately understood, and I lost it. I started sobbing and left the room. Then I pulled it back together and helped everyone get loaded into the car for a 30 minute trip to the hospital. We decided no more clinics for stitches from now on. My mom got pulled over for speeding on the way, but the officer let us go of course! So by the time we get there, Landon has calmed down, and we get a room with in 10 minutes of our arrival. They did things much differently this time. The very first thing they did was put a very strong numbing gel on his chin. We chose not to tell Landon until right before hand that he was getting stitches again. When he asked what was going to happen, we just said the doctor is going to take care of you. So when they cocooned him he started getting scared and mad, but there was four of us this time and this doctor was faster and there was no shot needed and they didn't scrub it clean until after it was numb, so it went much smoother. Landon got three new trains, pizza, and a movie out of the deal. He loved showing everyone his stitches! Oh and by the way, it was not in the same place as the last time, it is slightly higher and to the left.
#3 I think this one was the worst for me, because I could have prevented it. Kevin keeps telling me to stop blaming myself, but it is so hard. This time it was Liam. Last night I was making dinner and holding Liam on my hip. I typical routine around here. I had just opened a can of olives and set it back down, then I moved over and started to stir my noodles when Liam started pulling away. I look down right as he is going for the can and I jerk him away. Well in the split second he grabbed the lid, actually picked up the can by the lid, and then when I jerked the lid cut him. He screamed bloody murder and was shaking. Oh my gosh what have I done. My poor baby. Then the scariest part started. Blood started squirting out like I have never seen before. I am running through the house with blood spilling everywhere looking for the phone. I hysterically yell at April my neighbor that I NEED HER NOW! She runs over and when she sees me and Liam covered in blood, she thinks there has been a stabbing. I tell her to grab a sock, tie it around his arm and drive us to the ER. So I didn't want to put Liam in his car seat, but I knew it was the right thing to do, so I sat next to him and held his arm up with him screaming the whole way. (Landon is in his underwear in his car seat and April's husband is meeting us there to take Landon) I jump out and go running in the ER dripping with blood and a screaming baby. The lady at the front desk, doesn't bat an eye, she asks his name and I can barely speak I'm crying so hard, and she says, "Oh it will be fine honey." Thanks lady for the comforting words, but I've never seen this much blood other than giving birth. So they take us back, clean us up and find that all that blood was coming from only a one inch cut down his thumb. Thank you God I said, the whole time I had thought that it was in between his thumb and first finger. I had been thinking about nerves, ligaments, and therapy. All that blood from his thumb. It had all happened so quickly and the blood came so fast in and such abundance, that I truly had no idea where the cut was. Crazy I know. Anyway, they wrapped it all up with gauze and it stopped bleeding for a while. They made us go back out to the waiting room and wait for 30 minutes to get a room. Kevin arrived from work very scared because he was envisioning the same location that I was. He was thankful to be greeted with it's his thumb and we only need a couple stitches. So my poor baby had to get cocooned, and he didn't get to have the numbing gel because of the location of his cut, but it went as well as it could have. He screamed during the whole thing, but we had my whole family and the Jackson's for moral support. For all of you who know that Liam is a thumb sucker, you will be excited to know that it is his right thumb that has the stitches. He still has good ole lefty to sooth himself with. So say a prayer for getting the stitches out and keeping it clean. I'm off to start another day that I hope will be less dramatic. And I will never let my kids come close to an open can again.

We went to the Aubrey Pumkin Patch this past weekend and the boys loved it! Nana, Pops, and Aunt DeeDee came along too (Kev was sick and didn't want to be around the hay) Landon soaked it all up as usual and is now BEGGING to make a scarecrow. So I guess I'm going to have to figure out how to do that:)
We are all suffering a bit from being around the hay. Landon can't stop coughing. For that matter, Kevin and I can't stop either and we are SICK of it. At least one person in our family has been sick for the last two months! I keep telling my pediatrician that I really don't like to see her as much as she thinks I do!! I can't imagine having three or four kids, you would be at the doctor every other day during "sick" season.

I can't flip this video, so your just going to have to turn your heads! Liam was cracking us up on the fourwheeler last weekend, so we got this short clip of him doing his thang. He is watching every move that Landon makes these days and it was evident from the minute he saw big brother riding the fourwheeler that he was going to conquer this riding machine as well:)
We tried to put him on it again last night and he was scared, so who knows how he really feels about it. Both of the boys tend to HATE things that come to "life". We have two toys that make them cry hysterically, Elmo and a dancing chicken. Kevin turns them on every couple months to see if they have changed their minds!! Landon runs and begs us to turn it off and Liam crawls as fast as he can and usually hides under the coffee table. It is so funny. We can't wait to see what Liam does with Santa this year:)
