she rocked it...

o yea....she rocked Elmo this year for Halloween!!
I know she is mine...but she's so cute!
She loves Elmo....actually she likes the thought of Elmo a lot more
than she actually likes him - because when he comes on tv - she only gives him about 20 seconds of her time.

I hope everyone had a fun night -
I will post pictures soon of Elmo trick or treating!!

tutu cute

I have always wanted to stick Logan in a tutu and give her a giant sucker - I thought it would be an adorable picture. Turns out.....I was right!

Needless to say - it was a great way to get a toddler to sit still for pictures!

First haircut....

it went great!
I really didn't want to cut her all.
But - it needed it. The back was getting a little nest like.
The front of Logans hair is straight, but the back is curly -
she was beginning to look like we never brushed her hair,
so we decided it was time!

it was painless
and Logan didn't move a muscle - even though she hates for me to touch her hair,
she sat like an angel the entire time and let Ms. Nicole cut her hair.

She just took enough off to shape it up some, you can't even tell it's been cut
but it looks soo much better!

My baby is getting so big...:-)

what should....

What should you do with a simple pumpkin?!!?

why...paint it of course!

We have had a busy few usual. Unfortunately - Cody's grandfather, Pop passed away last Friday. Although we will miss him terribly, we can say with certainty that he is in a better place. Please keep my husband's family in your prayers.

In other, more exciting news, Logan is walking everywhere!! She is into everything, all the time. She has pretty much decided that she thinks she is nocturnal, and she doesn't need to eat. I think she is cutting teeth, or at least I am hoping that is all that is up with her newest phase. She is such a joy to be around, she just has personality plus.

We are loving the Fall weather here - and love being outside! I have so much to blog about lately - just not much time, so hopefully I will find some time and share with everyone what we have been up too!

pumpkin patch!!

Yesterday we went to the pumpkin patch! We had so much fun! Logan loved being outside and she even liked the hay ride! She even picked out a few pumpkins to bring home!

Hello Blogger!!! It has been a while, I'm sorry. Life called, and we have been busy, busy, busy. Logan is doing fantastic, getting quite verbal and more and more mobile! She is pretty much the smallest little walker I have ever seen! She is usually steady on her feet and has only taken a few spills, nothing to bad...yet. She is pretty much into everything, all the time :-) I will give you a few updates on all things Logan lately...

At her 18 month appt, she weighed 18.2 lbs - yep, tiny. Due to her low weight (I should say, consistently low weight), she was labeled "failure to thrive." She has been in the negative percentiles the last few visits. At this visit, they drew blood to test her for a metabolic disorder. The pediatrician had contacted me previously and shared her concern, so we knew it was coming. They wanted to rule it out, so they could feel comfortable saying she was "just small." Failure to Thrive is simply a phrase found in medical books, it has nothing to do with her cognitive ability, just physical. It sounds worse than it is, honestly. We got the test results back recently - guess what....she's just small!!!! All of her bloodwork came back within normal range (a few were off, but nothing alarming). We were certainly relieved - and can feel good about her size, knowing nothing is causing her to be so small.

She is finishing up with physical therapy - that is because she is meeting appropriate milestones now! She is actually still "behind" but that is because by the charts they consider walkers at 12 months - well, if you don't walk until 18 months - you sort of have to be put on your own schedule. Her therapist feels like she will do great catching up. I am not sure how many visits we will have left, but she said today she felt great about Logan's progress. We go on Thursday to have her evaluated (per therapist) to see if Logan would benefit from braces on her legs, or possibly inserts in her shoes. Logan displays several different problems in her gate, none of which are consistant; but consistantly, there seems to always be a different gate pattern, none of which are technically correct. These gate issues are caused from weakness in her hips, knees, shins, and ankles. We also knew this was coming - no surprise. We have been told since birth the issues she would probably have (if any) would be with her walking. If the worse she has is braces - we can handle that :-) There is also the possibility he may say she needs nothing, who knows!

The weather here has been fantastic! However, we seemed to have gone from summer right to winter. It has actually been cold, not just cool! Once again, we have a busy week ahead, but I will be doing better about updating my blog, I miss it, and I miss everyone!
