It's official. Landry is no longer my baby. After the past few days, in my eyes, he officially became a big boy.
Monday, he started swimming lessons. He loves the water and honestly has no fear, so we though it might be good for him. At his age, they offer Parent & Me classes, so Big Daddy got in with him while I watched. He had a BLAST! I took these pics with no flash or anything, so they are not good at all, but I think they show his excitement!
Then... yesterday Landry started Big Boy School. It's actually Mother's Day Out, but we've been hyping it up as school to him! We thought about starting it in the fall, but with Ansley coming, we figured it would be good for him to be around smaller kids before she got here, not to mention it would give mom a break and give her a chance to do what she needs to!
Harli of course woke him up yesterday and then they had to share his breakfast of blueberry pancakes!
No one was available to go with me, so I had to take pictures just at the house.
A smile full of pancakes!
Obviously this is his serious pose!
I LOVE this one! He is so big!
I only cried twice yesterday morning, so I consider that a success. Landry didn't notice when I left, he was too busy playing with balls and eating crackers!
When I picked him up yesterday afternoon, he really didn't show any interest in me until a little girl pulled on my dress and was saying "mama, mama" and Landry ran up to me kinda like "um, excuse me, that would be my mom." They said he took a nap and ate the kid next to him's vegetables. Which is odd, since the kid won't eat veggies for any of us.
I think he's going to have a great time and really enjoy playing with the other kids this summer! Hopefully there won't be any biting, hitting, pinching....
Trissa and the boys met us at the house so they could play in the sprinklers!
Landry usually isn't one to enjoy that, but after watching his big cousins, he jumped right in and turned into a crazy man!
Trissa helped me organize Landry's things the other day, and Trissa caught them playing in the toy closet! They were being so quiet, we were kinda worried!
Overall, it has been a busy week so far! Hopefully Landry continues to enjoy his new activities! We are so proud of our big boy!
On a side note. I have a vent that I need to get off my chest.
If you have a problem with the age difference between our children, I would appreciate it if you would keep it to yourself.
Let me tell you this, YES surprises DO happen. Even with precautions to prevent it, they do indeed happen.
It's called life.
Also, I think this is the best surprise that God could grant us and we couldn't be more thrilled!
I do not think it is anyone's business how close or how far apart a couple chooses to have their children. That is a personal decision and if you have a problem with it, then I think you should tell someone who cares, because it isn't me.
