That ain't no Baby Ruth....

Logan's new favorite thing to do is to poop in the tub...yeah, gross right! He has done it three times now!! It is gross, but there is nothing we can do about it. It's not like we can stop giving him a bath. Now that we are getting more familiar with the signs, maybe we can start putting him on the toilet when we see the "poop stance". Sounds weird, but he lifts his butt up and looks like he is going to try standing up. He might have fooled us before, make that 3 times, but we are catching on:)

Logan looks soooo much like his daddy!!


Logan is still not crawling, but he is getting around. He might be a little directionally challenged. He goes backwards instead of forward.

Three Quarters Through

Logan is already 3/4 through his first year of life. It has been quick, but it has been fun. I can remember back to when he was three months and I thought that I would never get back into a normal routine, but here we are, chugging along like I have been doing this whole "mom" thing for years.

Still no crawling, but he is getting closer and closer. He no longer just sits on the floor. Instead, he makes attempt after failed attempt to get around. He leans over and gets on all fours and then he rocks like a mad man, but to no avail. He is getting there slowly and I am going to let it happen in it's own sweet time. I have this suspicion that once he gets going he will never stop...never:)

He still loves trolling around the house in his Jeep. He goes from room to room looking for you if you are calling his name and he screams and laughs once he finds you...so much fun!!! He loves to be outside, but the nice weather has been teasing us a bit.

Still no progress on the solid foods. We told the Dr at his 9 month appt about his choking and the Dr gave us the obvious answer that he probably wasn't ready. I am sure he thought we were dumb for asking, but so many people have this fixation with giving their kids finger foods.

I think that soon he will be eating them with his new set of chompers. He just recently got two teeth on top and now two more are coming through. He is going to have 4 on top and 2 on bottom. If he can't chew with those then he destined for a life of mushy goo:)

Chi Town!!!

Last month we took a trip up to Chicago so that Logan and Audrey could do a little bonding. Though they seem so much bigger and so much more interactive, they really didn't seem to be interested in one another. Well, at least it looked that way. I honestly believe that they were taking each other in.

Logan was not feeling it the first night that we were all together. Every time Audrey would start talking, Logan would pucker up and start to cry. It was pretty hilarious. I just know that the older they get the closer they will become.

Logan has not been feeling too well. He currently has a double ear infection, poor little man. This means that we are pretty much getting no sleep, but somehow, I am getting used to it. I guess I have no choice:) He ran a fever Friday, but still seemed in good spirits. He is totally normal in the day, but in the middle of the night he wakes up screaming. You can just tell that it is a "I'm in pain" cry and it makes me so sad. He is on amoxycillin, so I am hoping that kicks in soon. The doctor will take another look to make sure they are better on Tues for his 9 month appointment. WHAT?!?! 9 MONTHS!!! That sounds crazy!! How have we already covered three quarters of his first year?

It is crazy how quickly this first year is going. Though it is sad to see my little man grow up so quickly, it is also very exciting to watch him grow and learn. His new thing is dancing. When he hears music he starts moving his hips. However, no music is required, he also like to shake it in the tub:)

You can find me in the tub...
