The Final Edition!

Landen Lee Blackwell

was born on March 19, 2011!

Wieghing in at a whopping 9 pounds 7 ounces

and was 21 1/2 inches long.

Being the last baby it must of wanted it to be memorable.

OUCH!!! This one hurt!

My labor started up around 6:00 in the morning and he was born at 6:38 that evening.

It was long and hard and slightly emotional being the last one, but I love having him here after a long pregnacy.

I could her Jack playing in the back yard the whole time I was in labor. The girls were at my moms and he was staying with my sister in law who happened to be taking care of my mother in law at the time. So he got to see his brother a whole day before his sisters were going to come in and take over.

He was so big that his first outfit didn't fit him very well.

We still put it on him anyway.

It's A BOY!!!!!!!!

We are so excited for the final edition to our family. We had a ultrasound yesterday and it was very clear that Jack will get a brother out of this deal. Baylee and Jack were with us when we had the ultrasound and when we went to pick up his sisters from school the girls ran out and asked Jack if it was a boy or girl. He said, "It's still a boy." He knew it all along. I am so happy for him.

The Greatest Compliment!

Jack turned a BIG 4 years old. There are so many things he can do now. It's amazing how that can happen over night! Like buckling your seat belt and turning on lights that he can all of a sudden reach! I am grateful for all the big things he can do now! One of the things I love most about Jack is how much he loves me. He lets me know every day randomly throughout the day! He is very good at complimenting me. His DADDY has taught him how to be a charming little boy! The other night I took Jack out on a date for his birthday and we were walking along together when he stopped and looked up at me and said, "Mom, I love being me!" I am love that he is such a happy little boy. Now if he could just stop growing up so fast!

It's NOT a bullet!

This post may not be for the faint of heart. That was your warning! There are no pictures for this event. I don't take gross pictures. It's just not for me. Anyway, last night Baylee was running around naked waiting for the dad to put her in the bathtub. Jack was walking behind her to the bathroom, when he noticed something on her butt. I heard him say, "Wait Baylee you have a bullet on your butt!" The next thing I see is him trying to fling something off his hand saying, "EWWW, that's not a bullet." The poor guy will think twice before helping get something off of his sisters butt. For those of you who are wondering why he thought it was a bullet, we have a Nerf gun that has the orange bullets with the dark blue tips. Sometimes Baylee will pull the tips off. Not the case last night.

Jack takes a gymnastics class

Well the first day of gymnastics he didn't do much. He just sat there and watched the rest of the class. His teacher had to carry him whenever they would go to do something different. By the end of the class they were hanging like monkeys on the bar and he decided to try that. So this is week two, and he was so cute! He did everything he was told to do. He was always checking to make sure that I was watching.

He loves to jump around and give high fives to his teacher!

Willy Wonka Play

Our family got free tickets to go and see the Willy Wonka Play out at Spring Mountain Ranch. There was a rare cold front that came in and it was a little chilly for the middle of June. We love being with the kids and the family that joined us. This is the only picture my camera took. I am trying to collect more. I do love this picture of Baylee and Tracy. Hopefully I can add to this later!

I have no idea why Baylee, at the end of dinner, decided to start rubbing her mashed potatoes in her hair. I couldn't resist filming her. She is our little comedian!
