These are the pictures that I took today on the actual day of Landon's first birthday. We took him trick or treating at Beaver Creek Ski Resort...and man, it was a lot of fun. He actually lost his puppy ears tonight at the Resort. Chris and I looked everywhere for them...but there were so many people there that we had no chance of finding it. You could barely walk around because there were so many kids Anyways, check out the pics that I took today of my little toddler. Aww, it's cool to call him that. I love him! As soon as we got to the Resort, Landon fell asleep. Check out that picture!
Ready for my close up!
He just gives you that puppy dog look. Doesn't he?

1- Where were you when you first found out you were pregnant?
In the tub
2- Who was with you? Chris...and Landon before he was big and strong
3- How did you find out that you were pregnant? Well, Chris and I had actually planned our pregnancy so...I took a few tests before I found out for sure. I would say I was excited to know...so I took about 5 different tests, and they were all negative...and then one night my chest was hurting really bad at work. I worked for RE/Max Real Estate at the time, and when I got home from work, I took another pee test, and laid it on the counter..and hopped in the tub. Chris came in the bathroom and saw the results before me. All he kept saying was..."WHAT? WHAT? I said, "no way. Really?" I can honestly say though, that even though we planned the pregnancy..i was still quite scared, and nervous at the same time. I was for sure shocked!
4- What was your first reaction to finding out you were pregnant?
No way! Your lying! Really?.........I was shocked for sure
5- Your Husbands reacton?
He said he was stunned...and shocked. He said, "What?"
6- Who was the first person you told?
I actually tried calling my mom...but she didn't answer so I called Emily. I told her that I thought I was pregnant, but I wouldn't know for sure til that following Monday. She was real snappy with me on the phone, and I thought, Man...she must be mad at me or something. I didn't know at the time that it was because she was sick and pregnant too. hahaha
7-Did you plan to get pregnant?
Yep, but I was still shocked...kinda like...ohh gosh, I really am pregnant.
8-Was everybody happy for you?
Yes, everybody was really happy...before I knew that Emily was pregnant too, my mom kept telling me that I need to talk to Emily about my pregnancy..but I kept saying no, cause the last time I had talked to her about it, she snapped at me. My family wasn't too worried because I graduated that semester in college.
9. Did you go out and celebrate?
Honestly...I dont even remember. I think we went to Blue Bird Restaurant or something. I really love that place.
10- Did you want to find out the sex?
Yes...I really wanted to know.
11- What was the sex? He's definitely a BOY!
12-Did anyone throw you a baby shower? Of course. I have the best family!
13- If yes, who? My Mom, Brenda, and Briana threw one in Pennsylvania for me, and Chris' mom threw me one in Orem, Utah at her house.
14- Did you get any outfits at the baby shower that you just knew you weren't going to put on your baby? I actually think I liked them all. Really! It's just cool getting anything...cause it was all new and cute to me.
15- How much weight did you gain? ahh, probably about 30 pounds. I seriously probably gained like 15 the last month and a half.
16- Did you loose all of the weight that you gained? Yes, I did...FINALLY. I thought that because I didn't gain a ton, that it wouldn't be hard to get rid of...but that last 10 pounds really was tough. Just like Emily said though, after you have a baby...your body changes shape. Even though I'm back to my normal weight, I don't look the same as I used to.
17- Did you get a lot of stretch marks? Umm, I did get a few..but not too many. I thought it was bad..but others convinced me otherwise. I dont even care about that though. I remember thinking...ohh gosh, I have a stretch mark. They fade and you can't even see them anyways.
18- What did you crave the most? Seriously...I wanted pizza and pasta. Anything saucy. Mmm, I loved it!any kind of italian food ...I loved Bread too!
19- Did you crave anything crazy? No...not that I can think of at the moment.
20- Who or what got on your nerves the most? I just got tired of people trying to tell me the kind of parent I needed to be. I mean, I'm not an idiot. I have good values, and I am not going to let my kid be around drinking and drugs. I know that my mom's side of the family drinks and stuff..and I dont want my kids involved in that...but that doesn't mean that my kid is never going to know that part of my family. I'm going to let my baby know my mom's side of the family no matter what they're habits might be. I got tired of people telling me that I really need to think about what kind of people my kid was going to be around. I'm like...dude, he's not even born yet. SHUT UP! Notice the annoyied attitude.
21- Were you married at the time? Yes of course!
22- Did you have any complications during your pregnancy?
Nope. I was healthy the whole time..and so was Landon. I mean, I threw up a lot...but that was expected.
23- Where were you when you went into labor? I was sleeping...well, actually I woke up to use the bathroom, and when I went...I noticed that my water had just broken. It was 3 in the morning...and I didn't know what was happening. I hurried to wake my mom up (because she was visiting me and Emily at the time) and she would know best if I was in labor. I noticed a little blood, and my mom said...umm, I think your in labor....so then Chris woke up, and he grabbed the diaperbag...and we headed to the hospital. I wasn't in any pain though, so I didn't even know I was in Labor. We hurried to the New Women's Center in Logan, Utah. . . and it was the first night that that place had opened...so that was an experience. The nurses had no idea where the towels were or anything...and my water was leaking all over the floor. Gross huh? Girls you can't help that when your pregnant. Your body does whatever it wants to do.
24- Did your water break? Yep!
25- Who drove you to the hospital? My mom and my husband Chris
26- Did you go early or late? I went into labor 8 days early.
27- Who was in the room with you when you gave birth?
Umm Chris...and then some students learning...and then the nurses of course. Right after I gave Birth...Chris' mom showed up.
28- Was it video taped? Heck NO...but they did whip out the mirror. I didn't look though. That's gross!
29- Did you have any drugs for the pain? Heck yeah. There's no way I could've done it without the epidural. I didn't feel much...just pressure!
30-Did you go Natural or have a c-section? natural
31- What was your first reaction after giving birth? I just remember thinking...everyone leave! I just wanted to be alone..with my baby. I didn't want people around while I tried breastfeeding. Figures...everyone would come...and Landon had trouble breathing! I'm just the type of person who wants to be alone when something goes wrong. Landon had trouble breathing, and he was in the ICU for a week. The doctor had no idea what was wrong with him, and that was scarey. I just wanted to deal with it alone and with Chris. It was such a personal trial... I just wanted to deal with it as a family.
32- How big was the baby(s)? 5 pounds 15 ounces
33- Did your Husband cry? No
34- What did you name the baby(s)? Landon Christopher
35- Did the baby(s) have any complications? Yes, He had trouble breathing, and had Juandice.
36- How old is your baby today? He'll be one this Saturday...October 25th.
37- When is the next one(s) coming?I have no idea. Everyone says that having kids about two years apart is the best way to do it...so hmm...maybe we'll try for another one in about a year or something. Who knows!
38-If you could, would you do it all over again? Definitely...someday!

So real quick, I wanted to leave a comment, and tell everyone that Landon is doing a whole lot better. Chris' parents Kent/Denise and our brothers Evan and Braden drove here this past Friday...and stayed til today around 3:30pm. We threw Landon a party for his 1st birthday. And he got a bunch of stuff. Once again, thanks everyone for Landon's gifts for his birthday. It turned out great! Pictures will be posted shortly.

So, I first got some bad news. While Landon and I were visiting in Utah, he got a little bit of a bug..and he's had a high fevor for a few days. Every night for the past 2 nights, Landon has had a temperature of about 104. It's even got so high as up to 104.8, that was this morning around 7:30am. I called the doctor, and all he pretty much says is that I have to stick it out because usually all doctors can do for a fevor is to give the baby medacine, and I can do that at home. He said that if the temperature spikes after tonight, then for me to take Landon in to the clinic, and they will do some blood samples.
The good news is, it seems that Landon's fevor has gone away for the moment. The doctor says that it's normal for the fevor to go away during the day...so all I can do is...keep switching between Tylenol and IB Profin every 4 hours..and hopefully it works. If not, they'll have to give him an antibiotic. He's been sleeping a lot, and I'm happy for that because he hasn't really slept much since his fevor started.
It was so weird today because Landon's fevor was pretty high, up to 103.5...and I put some lotion on him...some cool wipes on his face..and then laid him back down..and when he woke up this afternoon, I noticed him calling for me. He said, "Maaa", and when I went into his room, he was standing up in his crib. That's the first time i've seen him stand or get up at all in 24 hours. He's been pretty lethargic for awhile. Anyways, you have no idea how happy I was to see my baby boy get up and smile. :)
Anyways, I just wanted to give you the status on how my week has been since I've been back to Colorado.

Eww, Chris and Landon were playin in the yard together..and I was snapping pictures. Yeah, as you can see, Landon started eating dirt. I figured...all boys eat dirt once...and so I let him do it...just enough to get a picture. You can see that he threw it down and started smackin his hands together to get the dirt off of his hands. You can see that he was happy as always though. He's a way good kid! I'm lucky!
