Dear Landon,

continued from last year...


December 12th, 2002...
I thought I loved you more than I could ever love anything in the whole world...then at 6:25 pm you were born. That moment I experienced a love I never thought was possible! You were beautiful...all 10 lb 3 oz of you!


December 12th, 2003...
You were just the cutest little (big) boy I'd ever seen! You were walking already and had a mouth full of teeth! You gave me a run for my money sometimes, but you loved your momma!! I loved you even more which didnt seem possible to me!!
Happy 1st Birthday Landon!


December 12th, 2004...
AHH...the terrible 2's were in FULL force! Somehow after all your tantrums, fits, and "episodes" you would have, I went to bed every night thanking God for letting me be your mother! You pretty much stayed in that lovely toddler
stage, but it all seems like a distant memory now! I wont go in to detail of when you ran away from me in the parking lot, tried to pull down my curtains, bite me when I put you in time out, or any of those other moments you blessed me with that year! Just that I still loved every moment I was your mom!
Happy 2nd Birthday Landon!


December 12th, 2005...
Wow...times sure changed this year! You became such a joy to be around! You were at your Montessori school and became a little boy! You could do everything on your own, but still loved for mommy to help you! We started movie nights and getting to do more fun things together..just the 2 of us!
Happy 3rd Birthday Landon!


December 12th, 2006...
You had such a personality! Your stories, vocabulary, and humor was hilarious!! You made everyone laugh and smile around you, and once again, I was so proud to be your mom!
Happy 4th Birthday Landon


December 12th, 2007...
I remember waking up thinking..."5 year old??? Really? Where has the time gone?" My little bugs, pooks, Lan-Man, boogs, bubs was getting so big and I was sad and happy all at once! Your sense of humor and personality continued to grow and make so many people smile!
Happy 5th Birthday Landon


December 12, 2008...


You are now in kindergarten and have become everything and more that I thought you would be! You are so smart, funny, handsome, and witty! I love you more today than I ever have in your whole life!
Thank You for making me so proud Landon! I love you with my whole life, heart and soul! You are the best thing that has ever happened to me and I cant wait to make so many more memories with you! (and dont worry, I will still love you with all your tough teenage years to come...please take it easy on mom though!!)
Happy 6th Birthday Landon!


December 12th, 2009...


I am starting to see a pattern here...every year you amaze me and I cant imagine loving you MORE.  Somehow, everyday makes me love you more and more!  We have so much fun together and cant imagine my life without you!
You are such a smart 1st grader!  Your teacher says you are a math wizard and you are reading so much better!  I love how excited you still get about things...your personality cracks me up daily!  You are very punctual and get very worried if you think we might be late!  It is too funny!
You still like to hang out on the couch and watch movies with me and I couldnt love those moments more!
Thanks for making the last 7 years the best years of my life!
Happy 7th Birthday Landon!


Love, Mom

Seriously So Sweet. You have a cool little guy there. Isn't being a MOM the best thing in the world. He is just as lucky to have you as his MOMMY!

Hope he enjoyed his 7th BIRTHDAY!

Emily said...

Happy belated birthday Landon! I am really hoping we do a dinner or lunch where we can meet Karys and Landon...and Blake (when he's born). That would be really fun. You are an amazing mom and I am positive these last 7 years have been pure joy for Landon as well!

Kimmie said...

Seriously the sweetest thing I have ever read. You are such a wonderful and loving mom!
