He has this....I'm not so sure look on his face cause this is the very first time he has touched grass. He attempted to touch the grass a few times with his hands then he proceeded to cross his legs and lift his feet. We'll have to try again.
Where has the time gone? Landon is genuinely a happy baby boy. Full of energy, smiles, giggles and curiosity. The funniest thing happened again the other day and I hope to capture it on video. When daddy lets out a fart....Landon will respond with a raspberry. Mimicking the sound.
He sings and claps when he's happy or when he hears music. Sometimes he'll even dance...swaying from side to side. So sweet.
I love our early morning routine. We turn on the radio, get into the highchair...we eat, we converse, we play, sing and dance. Landon even understands when I tell him were going to brush his teeth...he'll open his mouth for me. So cute. A great way to start each day! The hardest part is to leave him for the day but at least I know he's in good hands with Po-Po, Gung-Gung, and A-Yee(Grandma, Grandpa and Auntie).
Landon has brought more joy and happiness in my life than I could have ever imagined. I love you baby boy. I love you. Happy 11th months.

I recently learned how to make this pretty Island Floral. For this project you'll need one sheet of cardstock for the flower, a 2.5" x 3" piece of green cardstock for the leaves, 32" inches of ribbon or yarn, Island Floral Bigz die, Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, Standard Cutting Pads, and paper snips.
Start with die-cutting 5 flowers and 2 leaves from Stampin' Up!'s Island Floral Bigz die.
Score flower at each point where the petal meets the center. Folds can go in random directions.
Cut an 8 inch piece of ribbon, tie a knot and string it through the hole of one of the flowers. (Tip: you may want to double the knot to insure that the ribbon doesn't pull through)
Repeat this step 3 more times.
Take the ends of the four ribbons and pull them through the hole of the last flower. (Tip: you may want to stack the ends of the ribbon and snip it an angle to make it easier to pull through the hole.) Pull the ribbons til it is taught up against the last flower.
Secure the ribbon in the back of the flower by tying a knot. (tip: try to keep the strings pulled as taught as possible). Glue leaves.
Adjust each flower until you have achieved the look by rotating the flowers and/or changing the direction of the folds.
Colors: Melon Mambo and Old Olive. Have fun!
