Catching Up....

A lot has happened in the Yaggie house since I last updated. Landon is almost 22 months :( Blaine is loving his new job. I am busy with work, starting a photography business, and keeping up with Initials, Inc.

We are looking forward to the holidays and spending time with our family and friends.

Here are a couple pictures of the past few weeks. Enjoy!

18 Months

Landon is now a little over 18 months. He's growing up so fast. He needs to slow down just a little bit :)

We've been busy this summer..Landon and I were in a car accident early this summer. Landon came out of it unharmed and I only had a few bruises and some bumps. My Jeep ended up being totaled unfortunately. Therefore, we recently bought a 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan. I never would have thought I would be a van driver...but I love it. It's got so much room. And a lot of really cool features.

We've been busy with trips to the Indianapolis Zoo, Columbian Park Zoo, Indianapolis Indians game, New Buffalo Beach, Children's Museum, and Francesville. I can't believe that we have less than a month left before we go back to school.

I need to savor these last few weeks before it's back to the busy lifestyle that I oh so enjoy...ugh..

Craziness in the Yaggie household...

It's been a crazy month.

I'm going to give you highlights because, to be completely honest, I'm too tired to type paragraphs about everything.

~Meg had spur of the moment surgery to remove a large cyst on her ovary.
~Blaine put in his 2 weeks notice at McCutcheon.
~I made a sudden trip to Immediate Care...
~Blaine started his training at Tate and Lyle North :)
~I had a CT Scan.
~Landon had his doctors apt to recheck his hearing. He passed with flying colors :)
~We have a new baby NEPHEW!!!
~I was referred to a Lung doc and scheduled for breathing tests
~We finally found out what is wrong with me and I'm going to be just fine...

Needless to say, it's been kind of a crazy month for us. Things are going well for us now though. Blaine started his new job and is much happier. We have new things to talk about and it's way more fun to talk about a new job than to hear him complain every night about the same people mistreating him all the time. Landon is changing everyday. He's so busy.

We finally found out what's been going on with me. I have Sarcoid. It explains why I have had so many joint aches and pleurisy. It's kind of hard to explain but it's not life threatening. I'll be fine. It should go away on it's own, but my doctor wants me to come back in 4 weeks to check everything out to make sure. :)

Landon had his 15 month check up this week. He weighs 24lbs. He's eating everything in sight, running everywhere, constantly keeping us on our toes, speaking so clearly it's awesome. He says tractor, juice, socks, Ma Ma, Da Da, Papa, shoes, horse, dog, up, ball, mine, no, uh oh. night night, bye bye, hi. I can't even remember all the words because he's talking so much now. He's slowing starting to learn how to drink from a cup. He puts his hands together when we pray. :) Is a big help at dinner time. He will take plates and cups over to the table when we ask. My baby is growing up so fast. I want to cherish every minute. He still likes to snuggle with mommy. And I don't mind either :)


We welcomed Carson Levi Ripberger into our family on Monday, April 25!! He weighed in at 7lbs 11oz and 21 inches long. :) We are going to go down to see him this weekend. Makenna said she wanted us to come to their house so Landon could play with her while we played with Carson. We can't wait!!

Anyway, that's kind of a little glimpse of what's been going on in our lives. Hope everyone is having a great week :)

Tired of this snow....

Blaine is back to work after his back surgery!
Landon is finally starting to get over his ear infections!!
And, I'm ready for SPRING!!!!

We've been keeping busy over the last month. Blaine had back surgery on January 13. Therefore, I had to do all of the heavy lifting around the house. It wasn't as stressful as I thought it was going to be. Filling the wood boiler wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and it gives me a sense of appreciation for all the Blaine does for us. He is an amazing man that takes care of his family. Landon and I are so thankful for all Blaine does for us. Blaine doesn't sit down and relax very often so it was hard for him to have so many restrictions. But it did really well for the most part! :)

Our little boy is already 13 months. I swear this last month has flown by. I can't believe how fast he's growing. We had his one month well baby visit. He weighed in at 22 lbs 2 oz. We went back a week after for his ear infection check and he weighted 23 lbs 5 oz. It's crazy how much he gained in just one week. He's walking and running all over the place. He's got 7 teeth and is working on another one. We were on our way home last night and Blaine and I were talking about how quiet our car rides were just a few short months ago...my how things change. He's becoming so vocal. I just wish I knew what he was trying to say.
His new word this month is tractor. You can imagine how happy Daddy is with that one! :)

More later. Landon just woke up and we need to get out the door so I'm not late for work..

Have a good week.

Happy 1st Birthday Landon!!

Happy Birthday to my adorable little boy :o)

You have changed my life in ways you will never know. I'm so blessed and honored to be your Mom. You amaze me everyday and I love to watch you try new things. This past year has been one that I will remember forever.

You are now walking all by yourself, almost completely off of formula, drinking perfectly out of a sippy cup, completely off of baby food, sleeping soundly throughout he night, saying Ma Ma, Da Da, waving goodbye, blowing kisses, playing patty cake, dancing fool. I just love you so much.

Happy Birthday Spud. Mommy and Daddy love you so much.
