oooo....I love dressing my little Logi up! However, finding a costume for her seems to be a bit difficult - because of me! I like to dress her up in something that actually relates to her, rather than just something I got at the store. Last year she was Elmo because that was the only thing she seemed semi "into." So....for a long time, Logan is into all of the Eric Carle books, so we had a Brown Bear birthday party, and for Halloween, she was the cutest "Very Hungry Caterpillar" I have ever seen!
Makes me incredible sad and incredible happy all at the same time...
how is that possible?
Without getting mushy gushy...here is my girl at 2 and a half...
She is ridiculously cute isn't she?
She knows shes cute and uses it to the fullest potential...
it usually works.
*pretending to be asleep in this picture....*
There is something ironic about this picture...let me explain...
A little over a month ago, you decided that sleeping was overrated. At first, it was o so cute when you would come to get me in the middle of the night, hovering so cutely over me....I would walk you back to your bed and go back to mine.....rinse and repeat.
After a few nights of playing the game...I decided it really wasn't all that cute anymore and thought I would put a stop to it. Ha. You are very determined and pretty much relentless when it comes to getting what you want - and at all hours of the night....this tired mommy didn't have it in her to fight anymore. So now....you have shown me who is boss and I have taken up residency in your bed after the second visit to my room in the middle of the night. You enjoy a bed partner huh?
*assuming this is a phase...hopefully we will resume normal sleeping habits in a few weeks!*
I believe you are up to 23lbs - whoohoo!! You only get your height measured officially at well visits, and we don't go back until you turn 3 (did I just say 3??). When I unoffically measured you, you were about 33inches tall....tiny little thing.
You are a pretty good eater. You have days/weeks where you eat everything in sight and can't get enough and other days seem like I cannot get you to eat one bite. When you are finished with your meal, you push you plate away and exclaim (usually very loud) that you are done :-)
You love to play in your kitchen - that is probably your favorite toy right now. You can whip up some brownies and eggs (usually in that order) like nobody's business. I personally love the combo and especially love it when you mix in a little panticake (pancake) for me.
You love to play with Pluto (playdoh). You can create a great hotdog and your are becoming an expert on using the pluto scissors.
*this is her..."are you done taking pictures of me" face...*
You can identify a circle, line and a star and on occasion - a triangle and a square.
You also can draw circles and lines and have recently starting lining up your cheerios :-)
You still have a "color block." My child who can memorize anything, cannot grasp her colors :-)
She usually gets orange correct, and sometimes blue, but only on occasion. It will come!
Speaking of memorizing...you know the word to over 45 songs. Some songs are kid songs but most are old fashioned hymes. Your favorite is Amazing Grace and you sing it like a rockstar - all 4 verses!
Your favorite songs to sing right now are:
I May Never March in the Infintry, Jesus Loves Me, Child of the King, Victory in Jesus, O How I Love Jesus, Just a Little Talk with Jesus Makes it Right, Beaulah Land, I'm Longing for Home and That Heavenly Home.
Yep - we sing most all of those each and every night!!
T.V. really isn't your thing. The only show you show ANY interest in is Barney. I happen to like Barney! I think it is very educational and you LOVE all of the songs. You will watch a few minutes of it -and then its done!
And a new favorite picture of my 2 and a half year old...
wife. daughter. sister. going to be a teacher one day, formula feeding, disposable diapering, 100% vaccinating, baby food making, currently a stay at home mom to the best little girl ever.
husband, father, son, grandson, firefighter. He is great because...He changes diapers without complaining, rocks Logan and holds her tight when he puts her to bed, sings silly songs to her, changes his voice to match the character when reading her a book, makes the biggest, cutest mess when feeding her, can make Logan laugh, spends his days off with Logan.
Our Beautiful Logan
Logan is a special little girl who made her arrival into the world about 8 weeks early. She spent 28 days in the NICU. She is a little fighter and we love her to pieces. Read more by clicking on the button above "Logan's Story"
