If life was a giant game of Freeze Tag, and I was "IT", I'd be headed straight for our son. 

The days are slipping by way too fast and I just can't seem to get enough of him. These past two months have been my absolute favorite. I know there are fun times ahead - walking, talking, puddling jumping, etc. but I could use just a bit more time right now. He just turned 6 months and now he's only 5 days shy of 7. Seven months seems like such a big moment - infancy is really behind us at that point and we're hurling straight for toddler-hood.

In our household, five to seven months has been such a blessing. Our little man is really coming into his own. We enjoyed spending time with my parents a few weeks ago, and they confirmed some of my suspicions: Landon is a lot like his mom. Both of us are very visual learners. We can often be found completely absorbed in watching the action scene before us - eyes wide, drool dribble hanging off our chins, soaking it all in.

For the most part Landon seems fairly laid-back; happy to just be along for the ride. Although, he needs his routine. Landon just can't say NO to fun, so he pushes himself to the limit. (If you've ever seen RJ in a social situation you know this isn't the case for him. RJ loves fun, but once he's done, he is done. And he'll check out right there falling asleep mid-party.) But, like his Mama, Landon parties until he is so over-stimulated he melts-down in a thunderstorm of tears.

But, although he may be Mama's boy, Landon adores his dad. Both of them are sensitive souls and they love quality time. Most mornings I rise to see the two of them snuggled on the couch - RJ reading his Bible and Landon nestled into the crook of his arm chewing contentedly on a toy. And that is partly why I don't want this age to end. He isn't "on the go" yet and he still loves to snuggle. His world is so small he still thinks Mom and Dad are the best people on earth. His limited experiences lead him to believe a stroll in the grocery cart is an adventure. It is his sweet simplicity that I am loving. That, and his chubby little arms...
