Last week Hayden got his first computer. He Loves It!!!! We decided to get him one because he is always playing games on ours and at school. We were going to get him a desk top but decided to get him a laptop so we can monitor him. Plus, there wouldn't be wires going everywhere in his room and we can travel with it. He gets on it almost everyday to play on the Thomas & Friends or Chuggington website or just to watch Thomas episodes.

Mom surprising him.

Ok...what is it?

Landon trying to help out and Hayden is so excited!!!

Landon's 1st Haircut

Landon had his first haircut yesterday at daycare. It was sad for Blaine and I to let go of his curls but it was time. His hair was getting long, that our daycare lady, Vicki, was threatening us that one day when we picked Landon up from daycare he would have pig tails. She never did but since she said it so much she thought that she would just do it for laughs and took a picture of it. She said that he did wonderful. He sat there like a Big Boy. The only time that he got scared was when Shae, Vicki's daughter who helps out, started using the clippers and didn't like the nose of them. Now he looks like a 1 year old.

Also, Hayden went to his first movie yesterday with Papa. He had the day off from school, Snow Day. They went to see "How To Tame Your Dragon" in 3D. Papa said that he did great and loved the movie. They also shared popcorn and lemonade. It was a good day for both of my boys.

Everyone is doing great. Landon is still speed crawling but is starting to bear crawl alot and is pushing/walking with his Mickey Mouse Train, will have to post videos of it. I'm guessing pretty soon he will be walking or running. Man, I'm I going to be in trouble. I am sooooooooooooooooo ready for the track season to be over with and school. Had our parent/teacher conference with Hayden's teacher last week. Ms. Tucker said that Hayden is doing terrific and that academically he is way beyond for his age. I was so glad to hear that because I was concerned with him being the youngest kid in his class but he will be going to Kindergarten next year. Can you believe that!!!! My baby is growing up and I don't like it.

Landon's 1st Birthday

Ok, Ok, Ok....I know that it has been awhile but there has been alot going on in our family. Let's start out with Landon's 1st Birthday. We went down to Round Rock for Spring Break to celebrate his birthday with all of our family. I can't believe that Our Little Monkey is One!!! It just seems like yesterday when I was driving myself to the hospital becasue Blaine was out of town at the Texas Relays. What is Our Monkey up to:

  • He weights 19 pounds 15 ounces and is 29 inches long.
  • He has three teeth.
  • He is eating solid foods since he was 10 1/2 to 11 months, no more baby food. He loves pancakes, green beans, bananas, turkey, ham, carrots, cheerios, and gold fish just like brother.
  • Wears 9 months cloths and size 3 diapers.
  • He is our Speedy Gonzales. He crawls soooooooooo fast.
  • He's not walking yet but he pulls up on everything and will walk along the side of furniture or what ever he can get his little hands on.
  • He loves trains just like his brother. When Hayden is playing in his room with his trains, Landon has to be right their with him.
  • He has been sleeping through the night since he was 3 months and takes 2 naps a day.
  • We haven't switched to whole milk yet since I still have a whole freezer full of breastmilk.
  • He is starting to say more and more words like....tickle, tickle, tickle, bye-bye, dadda, mama, bubba (that's what he calls Hayden).
  • Drinks out of sippy cup.
  • Follows brother were ever he goes.

We were so glad that everyone was able to make it to Landon's birthday and help us celebrate. He is still loving all of his gifts. When he isn't playing with them, Hayden is playing with them. I guess you can never be to old for baby toys. Thanks again to everyone. Hope you enjoy the pictures and video. You can never be to late.

Sorry that I haven't updated or blog but things around the Wiley household have been very crazy. We have been dealing with VERY sick kids. Last Tuesday we went for Landon's 9 month check-up and everything was great. He weighted 18 pounds 9 ounces and 27 1/2 inches long. We didn't have to get any immunization shots just his 2nd round of the H1N1 shot.

Then Wednesday Hayden woke-up with a fever. Blaine took him to the doctor and he tested positive for RSV. Then Thursday afternoon Landon's daycare called and he was running a 101 fever so I went to pick him up. Took him to the doctor and he also tested positive for RSV and had a double ear infection. So they perscribed us medication for his ears and his coughing and we also started him on breathing treatments. Then on Monday, Hayden was finally able to go back to school. He had missed three days of school. Blaine and I felt that Landon wasn't getting better so yesterday I took him back to the doctor. They ran some test on him. His oxygen levels were good, they listened to his lungs to make sure there was no wheezing in them and there wasn't. I was glad to here that. They had thought when I had brought him in that maybe he had pneumonia. She checked his ears out to make sure the ear infection was gone and BAM!!! He still had a terrible ear infection. She said that it is so bad that it looks like that it's getting ready to burst...YIKES! So now he is on some strong medicine for his ears and we are giving him so numbing drops for the pain. He finally slept through the night for the first time since Saturday.

We are hoping that now things are going to turn around for us and the kids will stay healthy for awhile. I will leave you with a couple of updated pics of the boys.

Polar Express

On Saturday we rode the Polar Express. Hayden had a great time. He enjoyed it more this time because last year when we went he had a bad ear infection and wasn't feeling to good. Landon enjoyed looking at all the lights that were decorated all over the train. When we got to the North Pole, Santa got on the train with all of his elves and gave all the kids a Bell, which is the first gift of Christmas in the movie. He also asked all the kids what they wanted for Christmas. Hayden told him that he wanted a scooter. Landon was just mesmerized by him. We had a great time and can't wait to do it again with the kids next year.

For Thanksgiving this year we went to San Antonio. We stayed at a great place called Hyatt Wild Oak Ranch. It was wonderful. We had a one bedroom condo that was wonderful. They had an indoor/outdoor heated pool, a indoor/outdoor slide, lazy river (very cold and we didn't get in) and a huge fire pit that we did smores on one night. On Wednesday we met my mom and Clarence for lunch in San Marcos @ Mamacita's, I sure do miss eating there and the food was so good. Blaine took me around campus, I can't believe how much everthing has changed and grown. I saw the new football stadium and the softball and baseball fields. Then I saw were our house use to be. It was a sad moment for me because our first house is gone along with some of the great trees and now a stip mall is there instead.

On Thanksgiving day we went, along with Alan and Linda, to the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort & Spa to have lunch. They served everything that you can imagion. They had a salad and soup bar, pasta bar, seafood bar, your traditional Thanksgiving food, and a breakfast bar. They also had tons of deserts and homemade ice cream that was out of this world. For Hayden, they had a seperate kids buffet that was at his level. They had a movie going for all the kids to watch if they wanted to, a coloring station, and a clown that was making balloon animals or what ever you a sword-that's what Hayden got. We all loved it.

The next day we all went to Sea World. One of our good friend's from college, Kyle Hierholzer, met us there and we got to spend the day with him. We went and saw the Clyde and Semore show, the Shamu show, watched Polar Express in 4-D, the grown-ups rode the roller costers...except for Linda, and Hayden played on the playscape that they have and rode a little shamu roller coster they had for kids. Is was a long day. We were there from 10-6.

Saturday we took it easy. We stayed around the condo and then for an early dinner we went to Market Square and ate at Mi Tierra's. They have to best food and bakery. We were going to go on the River Walk but OMG it was so crowded. It was like everyone from San Anotiono was down there. So we just drove by the lights so Hayden could see them and headed back to the condo.

We had a wonderful time and we want to go back to the Wild Oak Ranch during the summer so we can get in the lazy river. I have two slide shows...couldn't fit them all on to one.
