Happy First Birthday Landon.

What a great day we have had. Nate took the day off of work and we started the day off by waking up our precious son at 7:45 a.m with the Happy Birthday song. We wanted to wake him up a little earlier so that he would go down for his morning nap a little earlier. We then proceeded to make his breakfast. He had oatmeal and yogurt. I think it is his favorite meal of the day! After breakfast, we came downstairs and I gave him a new toy, but the water bottle was more interesting than anything else! He is obsessed with those for some reason. I have put one of those in the diaper bag because if he ever gets fussy, all I have to do is take out the bottle and he is happy! I proceeded to lay him down around 9:45 a.m. for his morning nap. He stood up, talked, and played for about 5 minutes and then he just laid down and went to sleep. How much better can that get? After about 1 hour and 50 minutes, we heard our sweet boy waking up with his dadadada words. As Nate went to get him, I prepared his lunch. Keep in mind we only had 20 minutes to feed him and dress him before we had to be at Cookie Cutters for his first haircut. As we walked in, another little boy about 3 years old was screaming at the top of his lungs. As we put Landon in an old fashion car, he just wanted to play with the steering wheel. Alissa was the girl who was cutting his hair. She was so good! She actually cut it very even and it looked awesome! It's amazing how they can do that when you have a ONE year old moving all around! After his haircut, we walked over to Qdoba and had some lunch. Qdoba doesn't even compare to Chipotle. Can we get a shout out from all those Chipotle lovers out there? :-) It was now about 2:00 p.m. as we headed to Branson, MO for some shopping. The Tanger outlet mall was very good to us. Needless to say, Landon didn't get very much. (yea right!) I think I need to do some investing in Baby Gap. After a couple hours of shopping, we headed to the Cantina Laredo at the Branson Landing for some dinner. Landon was such a good little boy! (He fell asleep in the car on the way there so we got to see more of Branson than I really wanted to see.) It was a great meal! The service and food was excellent. We couldn't have asked for a better day with our sweet baby boy. Thank you Jesus for allowing us to be parents to a precious boy that you created. How much better can it get?
