Today we welcomed one more handsome, chubby cheeked boy into the mix! Landon Bruce Syers was born at 2:20 a.m. on December 21, 2010! He weighed in at a whopping 9 pounds, 6 ounces! And he is 21 inches long! A strong, strapping little guy with a full head of thick, golden hair!
I got to be there for the birth and with my ear pressed against the door, I heard his first cry! I was there for Payton & Brady's birthdays and I wouldn't have missed Landon's for anything- even if I had to get out of bed at 12:30 a.m. and drive across town in my pajamas! We are so happy he came a few days early so we could meet him before we take off to Chicago for Christmas!

The Golden Boy!
Payton & Brady meeting their new little brother!
On the way over to the hospital Nolan was so excited to meet "baby Landon" who we've prayed for in his bedtime prayers every night for the past 9 months! He kept saying, "I'm gonna hug him and kiss him". Then when we got there he was much more interested in looking out the window and watching the fire trucks and the helicopter landing pad and playing with Payton's pink monster truck (she wants to fit in with the boys and one of their many vehicle obsessions) and Brady's new yellow Hummer that we got them for their big sibling gifts. I managed to entice him into giving Landon a kiss with a bribe of Sour Patch Kids if he loved on his new cousin for awhile!
Proud Uncle & Auntie
Heater got really excited and flashed his usual huge smile and gave Landon his oh-so cute nervous laugh when he met him!
Later in our visit, in usual Nolan style he carefully patted Landon's head and quietly and sweetly gave him another kiss!
These boys will have a lot of fun someday! They already manage to get into all sorts of mischief and silliness together! Heath, Cohen, and Landon will surely learn a lot from their big cousins- Brady & Nolan!
Landon...We love you lots, think you are absolutely perfect, and can't wait to spoil you!!!
