& he turns TWO

How is this day already here? How can this little man already be turning two? & how can he go from this…

to this…

Logan you have been such an amazing addition to our lives. You are just the sweetest little man I know & always, ALWAYS have the ability to make us smile. Although you LOVE to do everything your brother does, you are your own you. You can't go to sleep without your two lovies, your dino, your baby, your doggy, horse, froggy and we can't forget about the book. How you sleep in a bed full of your friends is beyond me.

Your first words each day are MOMMMMY or DADDDDY, quickly followed by Fruit Loops? Milk? Spoon? and as soon as I step out of the shower you are there by my side waiting to be lifted up to "your spot" on the sink where we spend the next 20 minutes chatting it up. These 20 minutes have easily become one of my most favorite times of the day.

No one does a hello or a goodbye the way you do. You have the biggest wave which is matched by the cutest smirk I have ever laid eyes on. I love walking through Ms. Brenda's door after a day at work because I know you will be charging straight for me ready to wrap your little arms around me for a big Logie hug. Only to be followed by "sucker?" but at least I rate above the sucker--for now. I love how the first thing you do when you walk through the door when we get home is to greet your Daddy with a big "Hi Daddy" followed by an "Eat." & to the table you go.

I love how gentle you are with babies. I love how you have become a little more territorial when it comes to me--took long enough! I love how you have no fear & want to try anything once but that you learn lessons very quickly & we hardly have to tell you no twice---although, you are just turning two, so that could be changing.

I love how you are still my baby. How you call for me in the middle of the night. How you burrow up next to Daddy when I say its bedtime. I love how you can be completely in the middle of a meltdown or just too tired but once in our arms with a little back rub, you are as good as new.

I love seeing you learn. You are the smartest, newly two year old that I know. You play a mean game of Zingo. You can put almost every puzzle we have together in no time. You know how to use our phones almost better than we do--although this may not be the best thing…

I love how peaceful you look when sleeping. These last couple of days I have tried taking advantage of those restless sleeps you have been having & snuck in, picked you up, & brought you in with me. We lay down and in a matter of minutes you are making that cute little noise you do when you suck on your lovies. Your breathing calms & you nestle right into my arms & there we both drift off to sleep. You dreaming of dinosaurs & suckers. Me-I'm not dreaming, cause you were our dream come true. You completed our family & we couldn't be more blessed than we are today. I'll admit, the one thing I was constantly worried about when I was pregnant with you was how I was going to love you as much as I loved your brother--how silly I was. It happened instantly and each day it grows a little more.

We love you to the moon & back.


Hoping to have some pictures of the birthday boy to share a little later today, if the weather cooperates & we get to do our own little mini-shoot.
