He's Four!

My little cowboy is 4 today! He's growing up so fast. It doesn't seem like too long ago that I was sitting out in the back yard watching my 14 month old princess play holding him in my arms...doesn't quite seem like it should be four years ago already.

Landon has really grown up this past year. He has become kinda shy around people he doesn't know but loves to make new friends at the park. He's usually the first to go up and introduce himself and is more outgoing when Kaitlyn isn't around. He loves to help around the house and is the first one to pitch in when it's time to clean up the toys or fold laundry. He's a rough and tumble kind of guy but deep down he is sensitive, sweet, and caring. He is also thoughtful and giving...he will give anything away to anyone...Kaitlyn often takes advantage of this...oops! :-)

He has coordination beyond his years. I think he is going to be good at any sport he tries. He has recently learned to swim without floaties or a life jacket. He is pretty proud that he can sit on the bottom of Grandma's pool. He used to be a daredevil all of the time, but I have seen him be a little more cautious of the things he does...he's still a daredevil though.

This guy can eat! It's scary to think that if he can put away a few hotdogs or pieces of pizza now, what's it going to be like when he is a teenager!? He is good when it comes to eating his veggies and trying new foods.

Landon, I have really enjoyed watching you grow up a little more this year. You crack me up kid! I love talking with you, pretending with you, and cuddling with you. I pray that God will give us many, many more years with you. May you grow to love Jesus even more and I pray that this will be the year that He becomes your Savior.

Happy Birthday, Cowboy! Mommy loves you as much as the stars in the sky!
