Happy Birthday Landon!

My husband and I sat up talking last night after all the kiddos were in bed and we watched our t.v. and blew up all of Landon's birthday balloons. When we should have been going to sleep we found ourselves reminiscing about our baby, Landon. How we couldn't believe he is already 3 years old. How sweet he is. How funny he is. We laughed hysterically as we discussed all his wonderful little quirks.  Idiosyncrasies, that perhaps, sometimes should be disciplined but more often are laughed at. I remember the feeling of not knowing if we were having a boy or a girl, and how much I loved that excitement of the unknown. I told him having done both (finding out and not) I would absolutely do it that way every time if given the chance all over. And there he was...a beautiful, baby BOY!! And the surprise in Jacob's voice in that delivery/surgery room was priceless. "It's a....BOY!! Oh my gosh, I have a BOY!!"  And that we do. Landon is ALL BOY. 150% ALL BOY. He is such a blessing to our little family. He brings laughter and joy. He is an extension of our love. All of our love, put together, in this wonderful bundle of perfection.

I love you Landon Jacob Bryant. 

Sooooo much...



  1. He is so handsome!!! Happy birthday to your babe!! Also.. I want to know more about this not knowing business... my mom did that with both my sister and I. Did you like not knowing more because of the surprise and excitement?!

    1. Thanks Bailee!! I always heard there are few good surprises in this life that we get so I figured why not make this one of them. And yes, I was more excited about finding out the sex of our baby than I was nervous about my surgery. (I had a scheduled C-Section) Honestly, it made for the funnest delivery and the best memories for us. The only thing I wish I could have been a part of is being out there when Jacob got to tell everyone that we had a it leaves your entire family in suspense. It's the best!

  2. I just love him! Happy Birthday Landon!!

  3. goodness, he is so cute I could just eat him up! I still can't get over him being 3. Didn't I just go to the hospital yesterday to see him?? btw, Ella looks so little in that picture!
