All Things Landon - 17 Months Old

Those who told us that before we knew it Landon would be graduating high school, really knew what they were talking about! Landon is 17 months old (as of July 3). No longer is he my tiny baby boy, but now my (tiny) big boy.

Landon's First Detroit Tiger's Game

He really has grown up so much over these last few months. He amazes me everyday with either a new word, imitating Todd or I, a new dance move or just simply being his sweet self. It is such a privilege to be a parent - Getting to watch this little person grow and learn - I thank GOD that he has given me the opportunity everyday :)
