The taste of wood?

Yep, he's licking the wood.


"What??"
And he licks it again, and again.
" Mmm, that was tasty."

So it looks like our son, Landon, has acquired the taste of wood. Any of you know of interesting taste bud fetishes among little babies? Of course, wood isn't as strange as eating dirt and bugs so I guess it's okay. He is pretty partial to the coffee table (and that is not easy to get out of his reach).

Playing with Dad

There must be something about living on the edge that even babies enjoy. Landon loves it when he is swung (gently) around, espacially when he's upside down. Here's a video.

The best part of it all is that Ben got a hug from Landon thanking him for all the fun.

Davis Look-alike Meter


So I think it comes as no surpise that Landon inherited more of his daddy's physical traits. But I must admit that the results vary on this because a few of the times, with different pictures at different angles, Landon equally looked like us. So I will say, this is a fun thing but don't take it as the ends all of "who looks like who the most" debates.

Photoshoot

Well, as you can see I couldn't figure out how to get the slide show in a larger size, so I posted the pictures themselves. I took these photos of Landon because we are thinking about going to JC Penny and getting some photos done and I wanted to see if overalls without a shirt would be cute. I used the website Picnik to add soft focus, and a vinette to some of the photos. What do you think?

A closer look at Landon

So, I'm not a big fan of a dark room and a camera flash, but in this case I think the subject turned out pretty darn cute. He was resting on my legs as I lifted him up and down (while taking a picture, so that was a bit tricky). Anyway, that's Landon up close and personal.

Daddy AND Mommy's little boy

Maybe Landon is still too young, but it seems he is both a daddy's and momma's boy. I always hear about a child being one or the other, but I am sure there are many children who are both. But I must admit that Ben has the calming touch. Whenever Landon is cranky because he is tired I pass him over to Ben and it takes him only a minute or so to be conked out. Now, it takes me about five to ten minutes of rocking him back and forth to get the same result. So there is something to be said for a father's touch.

Landon's first bites

Landon is now almost four and half months old and today he got to try cereal. He did pretty good, at least he didn't spit it up all over dad. He is just over 14 pounds so maybe the cereal combined with the bottle with help him put on the weight. Here's a video and pictures of his milestone event.

He sure is messy, but oh so cute!
