Big Brother

I realize as I keep writing about updates with Keegan that I haven't really shared all the new 'things' going on with Landon!

He is a little over two (28 months) and non-stop! Still learning his big brother role, but he loves to lay down and 'play' with Keegan. Getting more and more into reading which makes my little teacher heart so happy. The favorites are Little Blue Truck, I Love You, Stinky Face, and Look and Find Thomas (finding pictures in different scenes with Thomas the Train - of course). A new routine at night has been after getting into pjs and brushing teeth he gets to read a book with daddy and then a book with me. You should've seen the look on Landon's face one night when I went into his room empty handed (aka- not carrying Keegan) and ready to read and just be his. Sort of broke my heart a little but also made me happy that this new addition to his bedtime routine is something he loves and looks forward to.

Landon is such a parrot and copying everything we say. He really loves singing songs and it's so cute when he's singing and we join him. He gets all excited we know what he's saying. L sings Thomas songs from the show and Daniel Tiger. 

I actually really love this show - spin off Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. Lots of great songs
that reinforce things that need to be done at home or with friends. Love Daniel Tiger!
He loves being 'FAST!" and enjoys being a super hero. He'll grab any blanket and ask me to put his cape on. So cute! I posted a cute video on instagram of him zooming around the house. I think we've figured out what we'll be for Halloween early this year. ;)

Off he goes!

It's a wonderful life!

2 Months!

Oh my smiling little sweetie!!! Happy 2 months!

Keegan has grown a ton! 15lb 2oz and 24 inches long. (The EXACT same stats as Landon at this age...crazy! Twinkies!) and Keegan is also cooing, smiling and talking a lot. I LOVE THAT! He's recognizing and reacting to faces. Just so fun and I can't wait to experience more of his firsts with him! He's starting to get better at holding his neck up during tummy time and he can bat at the toys above his head in the rocker/bouncer. So AMAZING how quickly they learn and change this young! 

This was such a special moment that happened this month. Ryan asked Landon if he wanted to hold baby brother... "Mommy...daddy...hold brudder?" (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)) And he did! It.was.precious. A moment that really helped this mama's heart. I was feeling so sad that Landon's little self wasn't coping well with baby brother here, but he's really understanding they both have to 'share' mommy now. I definitely capitalize on time with Landon while Keegan sleeps and vice versa. During the day when they both are needing something at the same time... I'll tell Landon he needs to wait and help Keegan or I'll tell Keegan out loud he has to wait while I help Landon. I think that REALLY helped Landon see they both have to wait sometimes.

Just love these two baby boys and their daddy with all my heart!

It's a wonderful life!
