12 months of Landon

I wanted to do a quick review of Landon's 1st year... I know that every mother says that time flies by.. But time sure does fly by!! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect experience as I entered into motherhood. It it exactly how i imagined it would be, perfect and fun- he is teaching me patience and I now know the meaning of unconditional love. Everyday I look at him and I want to do 2 things, I want to freeze time and as I wonder how he will be when he grows up, I quickly want to call my mother and apologize for all the heartache and agony i put her through... Lol

But here is my first year as a mother. 

On September 22, 2011, I found out that I was pregnant and we were beyond thrilled!!! 

Landon was born on June 11, 2012. 4 weeks early, weighing 7lbs 5oz. He measured 18.5" and he was a happy, healthy, beautiful baby.
