Landon Update

So, I know some of you are aware that we took Landon in for an allergy scratch test. I thought you all would be interested in the results. So it turns out that he is allergic to peanuts, eggs, dogs and cats. I guess it is a good thing that we got rid of our cat, Jack, although it is still sad. We won't know how bad the food allergies are until we go in for some blood work...joy! It is sad now because Landon is old enough to realize what the doctor's office is and that he DOESN'T like it one bit. The minute we walked into the allergist's office he started crying, so the blood work should be REAL fun. Anyways, but it is nice to know what was bugging him and what foods to be careful of at least!

Notre Dame, Nauvoo, and Chicago

Sean's brother Drew graduated from Notre Dame and we were lucky enough to be able to go and support him. We also visited Nauvoo and Chicago while we were there. It was a quick trip, but tons of fun!

Bounce House Fun

If you know me, then you know that I LOVE garage sales. You never know what you might find. Even though I think it drives Sean up the wall, he agreed to stop at one when I saw a sign off the side of the road. We ended up buying this little bounce house that fits perfectly on our back balcony. Landon had has a blast in it. He literally bounces off the walls!










Tanna and Colby's Baptism

Our neice and nephew are very close in age and they were able to be baptized on the same day. It was very special to have all the family there. Sean made an amazing slideshow about the two of them. I don't think there was a dry eye in the room after that. Thank you to the Shoemaker and Yergensen families for letting us be a part of this special occasion. And congrats Tanna and Colby!

The Wasatch Back

The entire Yergensen family decided late last year that they were going to sign up for the Wasatch Back marathon as a team. The Ragnar relay is a wild 170 miles long and it goes from Logan to Park City. The twelve members of the team run three shifts each. Each leg is about 6-8 miles long each. Sean did an awesome job! He averaged around 10:50 per mile, even on the killer uphill portions. We are so proud of him for accomplishing his goal!

It's No Fun To Be Sick

It all started Sunday evening when I couldn't get Landon to eat ANYTHING. Even his favorite maple and brown sugar oatmeal was refused. That night Landon woke up three times. I usually wait to see if he will put himself back to sleep, which he did each time. In the morning I awoke to find that he had thrown up three times in the night. I felt awful. I had no idea. He was so tired he must have slept in it because it was caked on everywhere.

He continued to throw up anything I gave him that day, including water and Pedialyte. By the evening he was completely lethargic and not responding to us at all. We decided to take him in to Primary Children's Hospital in case he needed an IV. Sure enough, after spending about 2 hours in the waiting room they told us he needed an IV. After getting his blood work back they decided to keep him overnight. Needless to say, it was quite a long night.

By next afternoon, Landon was able to keep down a few ounces of Gatorade and a cracker which apparently qualified us to go home. I was overjoyed until I got home and found that the vomiting continued. I took him to see his pediatrician the next day and she said that he should not have been released and that we needed to go back. Not wanting to put the poor little guy through the trauma again I asked if we could hammer the fluids for a few hours and see if he could keep it down. She reluctantly agreed.

Of course by the time we got home Landon was back to refusing everything we offered. We even took him to the store so he could pick out his own drink. He was actually really excited at first, but of course refused it in the end. So back we went. After another IV we were convinced that he would be fine through the night and opted out of another hospital stay. We dragged ourselves home around 3:00am, utterly exhausted. After a final trip to the pediatrician's office this morning to follow up on Landon's progress, we are satisfied that he is starting to turn the corner. We still have to push the fluids, but he is eating a few solid foods and is getting the color back in his cheeks. PHEW!

Birthday Wishes


So I turned 23 yesterday...horray! I had a wonderful day. I kind of guessed what my gift from Sean was. He got me the last band for my ring. It looks fabulous and I LOVE it! But Sean can be pretty sneaky. He told me that we were going to dinner and then to the ballet. So being a ballerina, that was perfect in my mind. We decided to go to dinner at The Bambara which is right across the street from Capitol Theater. As we approached the door of the restaurant, he asked if it was ok if we didn't go to the ballet. I was a little confused but said yes of course. He then pointed to the marquee and said, because the ballet is over. I turned my head to look at the theater and saw the big WICKED sign. I was so excited I think I actually hit him (sorry babe). I couldn't believe it. It was impossible to get tickets...how?...when?...OH MY GOSH! It turns out that we were sitting right next to Tineka and Tim, which made the night even better. The show was amazing. I couldn't understand why people would go see the show multiple times when the tickets were so expensive. Now I know. I would go see it again tonight if I could get my hands on some tickets! Thank you for a wonderful birthday Sean. I love you!

Risky Business

I am sure a lot of you have seen the famous clip from the movie "Risky Business" with Tom Cruise? You know, the one where he is wearing the white shirt and is in his socks and he is playing the air guitar? Well, anyways, let's just say we have our own little Tom Cruise on our hands!

Have You Heard?

So a lot of people know already, but just in case you don't....I am pregnant again! It was a little bit of a surprise, but we are very happy. I am only about 8 weeks along. My official due date is November 27th, but my doctor said he would induce me a few days early so I will have room to eat Thanksgiving dinner. I love Hutch! Landon and the new baby will be almost exactly 2 years apart so it is perfect timing!

Landon's Sad Face

We are fast approaching the terrible twos. If we ever tell Landon no or don't give him what he wants this is usually the face we get. He hasn't thrown himself on the floor yet though. I guess that is what we have to look forward to!

Easter 2009

Here are some photos at the annual easter egg hunt at Grammy and Papa's house. Landon didn't know what to do at first, but it didn't take him long to figure it out, and of course he thought all the eggs were balls.




















San Diego Zoo

We went down to California for the baptism of my youngest sister, Allie. While there we thought we would take advantage of the beautiful sunny weather. Landon had his first experience with the beach. He wasn't too sure about it at first, but he loved chasing the birds in the sand. We also went to the zoo with Grandma and Aunt Julie. Landon loved all the animals and he imitated all the sounds he could. The Monkey and the birds were his favorites, and surprisingly he could care less about the petting zoo. Go figure!

A Night At Home

The other night Sean and I spent quite awhile filming everything that Landon did. We came up with some cute videos.

Video #1: Landon has just recently figured out how to give kisses with his mouth closed, but the sound effect is my favorite.

Video #2: Landon started tensing his whole body up when we say the word "crazy". I have no idea how or where this started, but it is pretty funny.

Video #3: We probably should not have taught Landon this. It's a little painful.

The New Year: 2009







This year we had some friends come over to our house for some food and games. One of the games we played I learned from my sister-in-law Tineka. Basically, you have to bend down and pick up a cereal box (the big ones from Costco work best) with your mouth. Only your feet can touch the floor. Each round you cut a piece of the box off until it is literally flat on the ground. It is pretty amusing watching your friends trying to get that box and there are always one or two that really surprise you at how flexible they are. And of course when Landon saw what we were doing, he tried to copy us. It was fun to watch...you should try it. Happy New Year everybody!

Landon's First Birthday











Landon turned one on December 15th. I can't believe it has been a year! We had a little party for him with mostly family and a few friends. We all had a good time. Landon didn't really understand the whole present thing. After opening the first one he didn't care about the rest. He was content with what he had. He absolutely loved the cake though. Of course we got a cake with a ball on it so it was a big hit. We realized that Landon has quite a sweet tooth. Ever since he tasted that cake, all he wants is sweets!
