Kissing Cousins

This last weekend we had a very nice visit with Aunt Cathy and Cousin Madeline who were in town visiting from Chicago. At first I was a little worried how Landon would be with Madeline since she is about 6 months younger than him and he is used to being the youngest. There were a couple of times when he pushed her for no apparent reason but for the most part he was pretty good. He would walk beside her and kind of push on her back and say "Come on" when he wanted her to play. They also enjoyed taking their baths together and splashing the moms or at least until Landon pooped in the tub and Aunt Cathy started gagging. ;)

Lucas enjoyed playing with his Aunt's and Uncle at grandma's all weekend and even snuck in a few cartoons that our rabbit ear t.v.'s don't pick up. Saturday night Lucas got to play with his friend Cassidy and then both the boys stayed the night with grandma and papa while mom and dad went to a Christmas party. One of the nights we left Mommy White Dog at grandma's house and Lucas laid by the front door waiting for Papa to drop her off. I think that was the longest 1/2 hour of his life. ;)

Christmas with Aunt Cathy produced lots of smiles and even though this cool game said 3 and up all the kids were entertained for quit a while......His golfing career started with Gator Golf......Madeline and her beautiful blue eyes.....

All Grown Up

So I finally broke down and took Landon to get his first hair cut. I really wanted to wait until his second birthday but it had gotten to the point that it was not even cute anymore. I considered going with a longer style like the shag but then opted for short so there would be no mistaking him for a girl. :)

He did pretty good for the most part and really only fussed when the stylist was shaving his neck and around his ears. He did keep saying "Ouch" as she was cutting his hair but we both made it out of there alive.

After his hair cut we went shopping at Kohl's and any time Landon saw a mirror he would stop and just stare at himself. I think we both love that his hair is now so easy to wash and style. Lucas said he likes his brother now that he has short hair and now wants me to spike his hair like Landon's.

It has been about 5 days since his haircut and I am still trying to get used to it. I know it is probably just my imagination but I think he acts older.... he definitely looks older.
