Susanna is 3 months old! A bit late

Ok, this post is a bit late, but better late than NEVER right?!

Susanna is so sweet, I say that every month. But it is so true. She is precious and laid back. She has the cutest little smile and the chubbiest cheeks! We love her and feel so tremendously blessed to be her parents.

Tricks and events of this month: Babbling, smiling all the time, turning over, scooting around her crib like a little inch worm, sucking on her hands fingers(might be a finger/thumb sucker), looking around for familiar voices, sleeping through the night, horrible diaper rash(pampers are bad news for this little one's bootie), naps most of the morning, is active in afternoon/evening, loves baths, but does not like post-bath rituals(Caroline loved this time when she was a baby)... and so much more!

Week in Review!

It has been a busy week here in Landry Land. Last weekend was a whirlwind trip to Louisiana for Josh's grandparent's 6oth wedding anniversary. 60 years, isn't that cool?! Then, Josh left town Monday for work. We are all tired and it looks like a tornado hit the inside of our house:) But, we all had a nice time. I am voting for a work trip for me! Ha! What do you think?

Anyway here are some pictures. I am posting a lot because this is the easiest way for my mom to view pictures when she is in Congo. Hi Mom! Enjoy!

Welcome to Blog World Meredith!

Meredith and Caroline

I am so excited that my friend Meredith West started a blog, I am sure she will entertain her loyal readers with witty writing and stories of the wild things that happen in the West house. Can't wait to read Mere! No pressure, huh!

I would post an embarrassing picture if I had one, aren't you lucky! So instead here is a picture of Mere with Caroline when she was around 1-2 months old.

armpit exercises

When Susanna "plays" on this toy, Caroline always says Susanna is doing her armpit exercises. She will usually do a few sets of armpit exercises when Susanna is done.

chatter box!

Oh my! I am sitting next to a chatter box. Isn't almost 3 years old to early to be so chatty? Why this, why that. Talking about everything she sees in the room. An excerpt from our current conversation: Cookies, old cups, decorations, naps, milk, the dogs scratching, trucks driving by, sleeping, snoring, needing someone to hold her, why?,hearing something in her room, what do you think it was mommy, a monster, mommy, mommy being loud during nap, a woodpecker waking her up from her nap, sister, being upset and whining, a little singing of Open Shut Them, how puppies eat cookies and of course Jesus....... Do you get the picture? It is precious, don't get me wrong. But, it is non stop. All day. Oh this girl makes me laugh!

And on a side note, she dressed herself for the first time today, she came in my room while I was getting ready and said "don't I look pretty?" The outfit included a dirty, backwards dress with black pants underneath and green crocs on the wrong feet. If I could get her to put matching outfits on we would be in business. It was nice to only get one little girl ready:)
