We're going farming...

Saturday was an interesting day -- Jeremy and I purchased two pieces of farm equipment from Franzen's Sales and Service. Don't ask me what they are, but I do know they are for hay. The price was right so we are going to look at farming part of our land instead of renting it out. I also stopped by to see my Dad at work. After visiting for a while he put Landon on one of the toy tractors. Landon was so cute because he instantly grabbed the steering wheal and tried to move it! Had I known I would have found some bibs and a plaid shirt for Landon! I guess you can say Landon is now a farm boy!

Mr. Photogenic

I can't believe my baby is 8 months old already. I was snapping some photos of Landon last night and he instantly turned on the charm! Thanks Grandpa Sabelka for the Calmar Fire Department tee-shirt.

Great Grandpa Hackman's Birthday Party

On August 15th, Landon's Great Grandpa Hackman turned 83 years young. To celebrate everyone got together on Saturday, August 16th at Grandma and Grandpa Hackman's house. What a perfect evening!

This has got to be my favorite picture! Even though Landon was in his pj's and ready for bed, he still had a smile for Great Grandpa!

Here is Landon with Great Grandpa and Great Grandma Hackman

I can stand!

This morning I put Landon in his crib so I could pick out his clothes and get him ready for his day. Landon has been trying so hard to pull himself up on things the last few days, and this morning he accomplished that task! He pulled himself right up and stood in his crib. He made it seem so effortless! I better add bubble wrap to my Wal-Mart list!

Check out my hair!

I had to share this picture of Landon's crazy hair! Here is Landon after his bath last night. I think the mohawk suits him well!

Landon's crawling...

Landon has officially been crawling for three weeks now. He started going forward and putting the motions together on July 21st. He was 7 months and 1 week old. Landon is loving his new world! He found that Elke's water bowl is a lot of fun as well as the flap on the VCR player! It is so incredible to watch him learn new things!

Landon's first pool party!

Here is Landon having some fun in the sun! I would like to say he kept his sunglasses on, but they were off about two seconds after snapping the photo!
Of course the plastic cups were a lot more fun than the pool toys!

Pick that apple!

I was busy making supper the other night and to entertain Landon I let him play with a basket of fake apples that usually sits on an end table in the family room. I looked over at Landon and Elke, and Elke was staring intently at the basket of apples. After a triple take I realized why Elke was so focused on the basket of apples. She dropped her tennis ball in there, hoping Landon would pick that "apple." How funny, I had to snap pictures. A few minutes later, Landon tipped over the basket and Elke's ball went rolling. Elke brought it right back to Landon. I know Elke's thinking 'finally this baby can do something!'
