So Landon, aka LB (landon baby) or Gogo bear, isn't the best nighttime sleeper I've ever known. But he sure does know how to nap in the car seat like none other. On more than one occasion he has fallen asleep before we even got out of the parking garage at work or driving down the street from home.  He can also fall asleep being held at the beach surrounded by friends and family.

Now if he could just channel that into good home sleep...

No Way

I was at work on December 23 and Avery called me at work to tell me she learned how to ride her bike. Jon just brought the bike along to the park, she hasn't really been interested in trying to ride lately. We took the training wheels off over 6 months ago and worked on coasting mainly. So he didn't think that he should bring the camera, it was just another day. But alas, she decided to figure it out. So on Christmas day, after seeing what Santa brought, opening tons of wonderful gifts, eating frittata and blueberry coffee cake, we all trekked over to the park to watch Avery in action. We are so proud. It is strange, I can't explain why it is such an accomplishment, but it's such a cool thing to watch my big little girl ride her bike all alone (and to see her write about it too!).
