Secret Spot

Logan often plays in his room by himself and you can hear him talking to himself or to his stuffed animals. One day he was in his room and it was quiet...for a little too long. Well this is where we found him.

Logan LOVES to play in his new secret spot behind on the rocker.  He goes into his toy box and is able to find all sorts of treaures that he forgot that he had.  He can be back there for hours...he's not...but he could!  Here is a few more....

The kid cracks me up everyday.  The things that he finds to do or get into is just amazing.  I can't believe he's going to be 1.  I am not even sure where the last year went!

Today started off as any normal Friday would.  Got to work, had some appointments and worked on some paperwork.  I heard some of my co-workers talking and then they asked "did you hear"?  Well, I hadn't heard so I went across the hall and then the news a mother never wants to hear, someones baby died.  Another women in the office was 6 months pregnant and went to the doctor because she hadn't felt her baby moving and just wanted to be sure.  Her just wanting to be sure turned into the most horrible new of her life, there was no heartbeat.  On Saturday May 8th she was induced and gave birth to her baby girl that she will never be able to watch grow.  She was keeping a blog about being pregnant and advice to her unborn baby girl.  I went on and read about the day she found out and the day she delivered.  I sat in my office crying, and then I started to be thankful.  Thankful that I have a healthy boy who is about to turn 1.  Thankful that I didn't have to go through the pain and heartbreak that she was enduring.  I thought about how Logan can make me so mad because he won't stay in one place when I am trying to put his diaper on.  Now I am thankful that I am to wrestle with him to get that diaper on, because he is here and I can hold him in my arms and kiss him goodnight.  Today I am thankful for all the moments where he makes me crazy when he isn't doing what he is supposed to and the times when he wants to snuggle and let me give him kisses.  I am thankful that I get to hear him call me mama on a daily basis.  I love you Logan, more than you know and am thankful you have blessed my life.

Early present

We are fast approaching Logan's first birthday!  The lucky boy already got his birthday present from one of his grandparents and can I tell you he LOVES it!  Aaron loves biking so we thought we would get a trailer to carry Logan.  (thanks grandma and grandpa!)  We FINALLY had some nice weather again on Sunday so after a walk in the park we put together the trailer. Aaron decided to give Logan and the trailer a little test drive.  We hoped it would go well and he would love it and not scream the whole time. So here he is in trailer
Here he is cruising around the driveway

Can you see the look on his face?  Think he likes it?
We brought him in and he cried and cried so Aaron took him out for a longer ride! LOL  Then today Aaron took Logan to the bike shop to get his a bike helmet, just to be on the safe side!  He actually did fine with it and they gave the trailer a ride again today for it's first real trip!  Here is Logan showing me his new hat when I got home!

I think that we are going to get a lot of use of the trailer!  Thanks again grandma and grandpa!!!
