Logan turned 7 weeks old yesterday and it is hard to believe that my time at home with him is two-thirds of the way done. In a matter of weeks I will be handing him over to Ms. Brenda to take care of while I head back to work. Now it isn't that I am not looking forward to going back to work but more like the fact that I can't believe he is already almost 2 months and going on 3! I forgot how quickly they grow and change. Logan is smiling constantly, I love watching him laugh at me, Daddy, Kaden and anyone else for that matter. He is taking about 4 ounces every 3-4 hours and sleeping anywhere from 4-7 hours at night. I know, big difference between 4 and 7 hours but 2 out of the last 3 nights he has went 7 hours between feedings and the third night, he was up pretty much all night-he was smiling but Justin and I weren't digging the giggles and cute looks that early in the morning. We go next Thursday for his two month check up and I am very anxious to see just how much weight he has put on, his rolls are just too cute!
Kaden will be 22 months in a matter of days and seems to be getting more and more independent by the day. He no longer has the pacifier, we took it away about a week ago on Father's Day. He wasn't wanting to give it up and he knows he is only allowed to have it at bedtime and at nap time so when he wouldn't give it up, I cut the nipple off. He took it back, tried to suck on it and it kept falling out, he got frustrated with it (not me) and then threw it in the trash. Pacifier Gone and we haven't looked back. Kaden also seems to be picking up words daily. Although he doesn't always use his words, he knows them and when we say what something is, he repeats it. I was a little worried about his speech at one point but not after making a note of how many words he really does know-now it is just getting him to use them in his daily routines. As always, he is a ham and loves to show off for whoever will watch including his little brother. I can already tell he is going to be a great teacher for Logan.
My Boys...Absolutely Perfect!
Please note-that is not blush on Kaden's cheeks. His cheeks get a little chap due to his allergies and we lather lotion on them three times a day. Most days it isn't this bad but today we had a little bit of a flare up.
