Landon - 9 Years!

How is it possible for me to have a 9 year old?  I really can't believe it!  This was the last birthday before the double digits and Landon has completely lost all of his baby features.  They've probably been gone for a while, but when you look over and your son is almost as tall as you, it kind of kicks you in the butt and you see all those changes you've been ignoring.  At 9 years old, Landon:

-weighs 64.4 lbs.
-is 4 ft, 7 in (he has grown 3 inches in the past couple of months!)
-is in 4th grade
-is playing flag football, basketball & baseball (he played on his first all-star team this past summer)
-wants to be a football player when he grows up
-his favorite colors are light blue & orange
-has really come out of his shell since we've moved to Wilmington.  He still is relatively reserved and quiet around people that he doesn't know but he is making friends a lot more than he used to.  He'll also not hesitate to leave me to go sit with his friends when we're at ball games, etc. which makes me a little sad, but happy that he's becoming so social
