my girl is 2!

Hard to believe - Logan is officially 2 now! She acts so big! She is thrilled to be two and loves to be asked how old she is! I have to write down everything she is doing, so bear with me (and skip to pics if you want!) while I brag on my child for a minute!

At Logan's 2 year well visit, she weighed 20lbs 9oz, and was 30.5inches tall. Yep, she is a peanut! We were just thrilled she reached 20lbs at two! Logan is not a picky eater, she just doesn't eat that much, and what she does eat, she burns off pretty quickly I would imagine! She is a busy, busy little girl.

She is pretty good (sometimes) at playing independently and loves to "cook" and go "grocery shopping!" Actually, she loves any kind of shopping and tells me when she thinks something looks cute. O my! She has a little kitchen and a buggy and most of the time during the day she can be found cooking or shopping. On nice days (loving the spring weather we have been having!) she stands at the window at 8AM and sings for Mr. Sun to come out! Logan is an outside kind of girl and would be out all day if she could! Speaking of singing, I see our future American Idol with Logan!!! Well, maybe not AI, but seriously, she can carry a tune - unlike her mother. She LOVES to sing and to be sung too. She knows MANY songs and usually is singing (very loudly) while playing.

She is walking very well and runs pretty well too. I wouldn't call it running necessarily, but she can get around pretty quickly. She walks with such attitude and just wiggles all around! She is so prissy! She is everything I ever imagined (and more!) she would be! She is a little girl who loves to look "pretty" and is obsessed with jewlery, make-up, baby dolls, etc...but she also can get dirty and play hard! She loves dirt and tractors, and doesn't mind getting dirty one little bit!

She really is quite demanding, and beging barking orders the minute her little feet hit the floor in the morning! She is slowly learning that (believe it or not!!) we run this house, not her!
We love her more than we could ever imagine and are so proud of our little 2 year old!

birthday girl...

O how I cannot believe this little one is turning two next week, amazing. She has grown into such a wonderful little girl, I could not be any more proud. We celebrated her birthday this weekend and had a great little party yesterday. I really wanted something for her party that represented her "right now." I didn't want to do something generic just because, so after thinking about it  - her favorite thing right now is the book, "Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See?" by Eric Carle - she actually loves all of his books, this one is tops right now though! So I decided to do a brown bear theme for her party!! I loved how it turned out!! Here are just a few pictures (I have not finished putting all of them on my computer yet). Logan was sooo happy and had such a great time...!

So....we are still here and kickin' - just have an ole' neglected blog. Not my intentions, just by the end of the day, exhaustion sets in and blogging no longer seems like a good idea when you are not so sure of what you might say :-) At any rate - here is an update on

The main reason blogging has taking a step back is because I am learning that attempting to run your own business can be rather time consuming! I have learned that I am not super-woman and I cannot work, run the house, keep a happy child, etc... - all while blogging about rainbows and butterflies - when really I am ready to pull my hair-out! In case you didn't know, (some of my bloggy friends have found me!! Thanks!) my love for all things photography has turned into this: Me=excited!! I love, love what I am doing and now that things are in order with my little business, I am finally feeling a bit normal again!! Like I said, I love what I am doing - I love that I still get to be home with my little love, but I am also doing something for myself that I love. Ok - enough of that - so if you are wondering where I have been lately - check out the link above and you will see where I have been!!! Moving on....

Logan is doing FANTASTIC!!!! We have not been to the doctor but ONE time since her last well visit - thats 6 months people, 6 months without taking this child to ANY doctor. amazing. We have truly been blessed. I would love to say she is growing like a weed (haha) but she really isn't!! She is growing everywhere except size! I know she is getting taller because her pants are all way too short, but not so sure about the weight thing - o well. She is happy, and to me - thats all that matters.

She goes from the time she gets up - to the time she closes her eyes at night - most days she is still giving me about a 2 hour nap - whew! She is a busy little girl. She talks all day, non-stop. Sometimes we tease and say she must go to bed with a sore throat because her mouth has run all day!!!

She is building a rather large playlist of songs - most of which she knows ALL the words too - her current favorite is Amazing Grace - yep, thats right - makes this heart swell I tell ya.

Potty training - o yea. We are on day 6 of big girl panties. Actually, they are tiny and still fall off - but they are panties and not a diaper! She has an accident now and then, but usually goes the whole day (except naps/bed) accident free! I am not quite sure she is ready b/c she has yet to tell me when she has to go, she just goes when I tell her too - any advice? Keep it up or wait until she knows when she has to go?

Logan will soon be 2...unreal. It is bittersweet in so many ways. I love the little girl she is turning into, but my baby is slowly not a baby anymore. We will be having a birthday party for her in a few weeks and her theme is none other than, "Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?" simply because that is her favorite in life right now. I wanted to do something that meant something to her, not just something generic - so Brown Bear it is!!! Can't wait to share pics with all of you!!
