Thumb, meet mouth

Logan has really taken a liking to sucking his thumb. Most of the time he gnaws on it, but lately he has been getting really good at sucking it...I am not worrying about it though. I read lots of bad things about it, but the good things are there too. He is learning to self-soothe himself, that is what I am going to keep telling myself:)

My little snuggle buddy!!!

Keep Rollin Rollin...

Logan has been rolling over onto his belly for about a week now, however, he can never get his arm out from underneath him so it has not been a true "rollover". Last night after downing 6 oz of formula with a little bit of rice cereal, I thought he would pass out....wrong!!! As soon as I set him down he rolled right over. I didn't think anything of it until he started squirming to get that arm loose. All of the sudden he got the arm positioned right and popped his head right up. I couldn't believe it!! After that rollover he rolled over two more times. I was able to get those ones on camera:)

October 21 ~ Logan's first night of rollovers:) ~Ooops...ignore daddy sleeping on couch~

Right after his first rollover ever....I think he was as surprised as I was.


Last weekend we went to visit Shannon, Audrey, and Matt up in Chicago and reintroduce the kids. They are still not too sure about what is going on, but it was cute to see them together. I can already tell that they are going to be besties:)

What up cuz?

The First Supper...

We have begun the solids...it is not as exciting as I had imagined, well, at least not for me:) Logan did really well, I was curious to see how he handled solid food. We fed him half a bottle and then planned on feeding him solids and finishing the other half of the bottle. However, half way through the solids Logan was getting pissed because he wanted the rest of the bottle. I guess you get instant gratification with a bottle as opposed to all the work he was having to do with the cereal.

At one point he sees the camera and he looks as if he shoos it away...then the Italian comes out and he starts yelling with his hands:) What's a matter you?!?!?

Is there Miracle Grow in the formula???

Logan went for his 4 month appointment on Tues and he is growing like a weed...a very large weed. He was 28 inches long and 18lbs 3.5oz. That puts him in the 100% percentile for length and 95% percentile for weight. Last time his head was normal at 64%, but it made quite a jump to the 86% percentile. He is just big and oh so kissable. He is sooo ticklish it is hysterical. When you get the right spot he is like the Pillsbury dough boy:) Hopefully, when he is mobile he will want to move around and not be a couch potato. I realize that right now he doesn't really have a choice in the matter, but he rolls on his side just to watch TV.

Watching "That 70's show"...

Over the weekend Logan got to meet his twin second cousins. It was so cute, the first thing he did when we stuck him in the middle of them was grab both of their hands, it was hilarious. The twins are a day older than his cousin Audrey so I can't wait to see how Audrey and him interact when we go up to Chicago this weekend.

I was getting a little worried that whenever we put him on tummy time he would turn his head and gnaw on his hand. Well, on Saturday when I put him on his tummy he lifted his head right up.

This is too much work...I'd rather be watching TV:)


Logan still isn't too crazy about his swing...that is unless daddy is pushing him in it. Every time the swing would come back to Dave, Logan would crack up laughing.


Trying with all his might to have a conversation with me.


His 4 month pic...this is totally a face that Dave makes!!!


Logan has a new fascination with his feet, especially his left one. He loves to grab on to them. He can not quite get them to his mouth yet, but when he can he will snacking on them night and day:) The band-aid on his leg is from his 4 month shot.

Room for complaints...

Tomorrow Logan will be 4 months old and I think he is already developing a little tude. There is a clear difference between when he is crying (hungry, sleepy) and when he is just complaining...the complaining usually turns into crying if his demands are not met.

Logan lets momma know he is done!!!

Four months is about when you can start solids. Nothing too exciting at first, just some rice cereal and oatmeal, but a definite step forward. I am so anxious to see what he thinks of something other than formula. His 4 month appointment is not until Monday so we will see if the Dr thinks that he is in fact ready for solids. Just in case, we already got the highchair together and let Logan test it out...

Looks like he is ready and loving his new highchair

Where's the food???


Such a ham!!!

Sporting a hoodie:)

Can I get a Ma Ma

So maybe Logan didn't know what he was saying, but we got a definite "ma-ma" out of him yesterday. He was getting a little fussy when all of the sudden it was plain as day, Dave and I both looked at each other like, "did you hear that?". I realize that he has no idea I am mama, but it was just cool to hear something other than goo. Hopefully, this will be the beginning of many dada's, baba's, and my personal favorite, mama's:)

With Halloween fast approaching I have decided that we are not going to subject him to a costume this year. I bought him a cute little dalmatian one, but he just looked so uncomfortable in it. He has a cute little Halloween outfit that will be just fine, however, I may regret this later:)

He made such a cute lil puppy dog!!


Not quite sure what this face is???

Roly Poly...

Logan is rolling onto his side. This might seem a little half assed for me to get excited about, but I know that he is moving towards a full roll someday...so for now, I will settle for a half roll:):) When I got home I was surprised to see that he did this quite a few times and I even managed to catch one time on video!

Video is kinda long...he rolls around 1:40:)
