pudding painting...

With all of the back to school stuff going on....Logan of course had to have new back to school items :-) I think she has quite a few new packs of markers, crayons and paint! We got out the new paint today and she had a great time! She wanted to do finger and foot prints and then she wrote her name, and drew circles! After she was "done" with that, mom asked if I had ever let her paint with pudding...nope! So I cheated and opened up a pudding pack and let her go to town! She had a blast!

love this.....:-)

sprinkler fun...

My little water baby loves all things water, in all forms! She likes being in a big pool, little pool, water table, and really loves the sprinkler!

She wants to go outside ALL the time...
and doesn't want to come inside for anything.
look close at the you see what I see?
Uh huh...she thinks anytime she is outside and around water, she can use the bathroom.
Gross, but kind of funny :-)
She always does it then goes and stands over the sprinkler to "rinse off."
Somebody should watch this child...
needless to had to be washed.

Yes, she choose this bathing suit, and the boots. I dig it.

I love this picture because it shows her cute birth mark! I have no idea whether it is a birth mark, or just a plain ole' freckle, but I like to call it her birth mark :-) She had it when she arrived....that counts as a birth mark I think!

Miss Personality! We had company arrive to our house right as I took this picture, I guess she was showing out for them????

No caption needed.....thats just adorable :-)

We are loving summer, and enjoying summer evenings in the sprinkler!

Happy 4th...

So what if I am a few weeks late - it's still July :-) I wanted to take Logan's pictures this year in this dress b/c this is the same dress she wore last year in her pictures - seems as if most of her stuff from last year still fits - just a little short :-)

We had a wonderful 4th! We celebrated with wonderful friends at their family cookout a few night before where Logan saw fireworks, or "firemans" as she called them! She liked watching them but didn't seem overly impressed - maybe next year!

On the 4th - we had a cookout at our house - it was so nice to have all of our family and friends together! Logan LOVES having the attention and loves all of her family. We are blessed to have so many people who love and care for us - family is wonderful.

We swam in her "water pool" a lot of the day and that evening she got to do sparklers for the first time! She didn't know what to think at first - but after a few of them and deciding it wasn't going to hurt her - she had fun with them!!
I have pictures coming of our fourth - we had a wonderful time and hope everyone enjoyed their holiday as well!

This girl just happens to be a regular ole' comedian! She has a crazy sense of humor, and is just hysterical when she gets on a roll!!

This is one of her latest tricks - she talks and sings out of the corner of her mouth. The picture does not do this justice, it is so funny! I can't help but laugh each time she does this!! It is so cute and she mostly sings like this. I have no idea why she does this, but we think it's cute.....sometimes :-)

This is her serious look - she sure gives off quite the look!! She will do this on command (feel like I'm talking about a dog - haha!) and she knows its funny when she does it!!

Oh.....Mr. Armpit! She is fascinated with her armpits! She is very ticklish! Sometimes she takes the handle off her kitchen sink and will be "washing her pits..." Sounds kind of gross typed out...but it's really funny when she does it!

Our little comedian makes us laugh daily :-)

love this girl...

She is a mess....and a half.
And I love this little mess and her "roar" bunches. 
Some exciting (a little late) news:
We moved! We closed on a new house on May 25th and spent our first night in the new house on June 10. We did a lot of work in the house - and now it is just perfect for our little family :-) We are very excited, but we are all still getting used to our new house!

Logan is sleeping in a big girl bed (pics coming soon). A real, live big girl bed. Sad :-(
Her crib converted into a full size bed and it is just beautiful. We spent a day last week picking out new bedding and a mattress for this big girl, it all came together beautifully. Not only does it look adorable, Logan loves it! We welcomed the changed for a few reasons, but the main reason being; this girl doesn't fit into a toddler bed too well.....and its not all that comfy while laying in the toddler bed for two hours trying to get a little one to sleep :-) Now that we are in a big bed, it is taking much less time for her to go to sleep, and is much more comfy for me :-) We have replaced the rocking chair (sad....again) with me laying with her and rubbing her back, singing to her, etc...I do realize at some point she will not need me to help her to sleep, but right now, she does - and I'm perfect with that. She will probably have to kick me out of her bed, hopefully not for a long time :-) She spent her first night in the big bed on June 29th.

Little miss is growing up and changing a bit too quickly! I wish I could freeze this age just for a little while. She is into everything, and yet - just so much fun right now. She comes up with new "sayings" that I think are just too funny not to write down somewhere! Here are a few recent things she has been saying...
"Mommy its too dark, I can hardly see my skin!"
"I'm not sleepy, only my eyes are..."
"I don't hardly know that one..." (about a song that she knows perfectly well, and didn't want to sing!)
"We're buddies!"
And her first bed-time prayer said all by herself:
"Dear Lord, Thank  you for this day and Mommy, Daddy, and precious baby Logan. In Jesus name we pray, Amen"

She is such a sweet girl with a huge heart, so thankful for her!
