New Addition

Welcome Hoodoo! He's the newest addition to our family. To make a long story short, he was being abused by some neighborhood boys and so we ended up taking him in. He is 10x's sweeter than our last kitty, Chaco, a.k.a "The Devil Himself" or "Gilly" (see here).

Hoodoo has survived Logan for a couples weeks now, so here's wishing him a continued happy and somewhat peaceful life with us!

Birthday Song

Here's Logan singing the birthday song as promised in the last post. He just started singing it that day in the car and I happened to get it on video. He had no idea I was taping him (between the seat and the head rest).

And the first part of this video has the beginning of his ABC's in it:

Logan Updates

Wowee am I behind on posting! Logan has changed so much lately, so I thought I'd post on his latest and greatest:

1. Logan's 2nd Birthday Party: So I realize this party was almost two months ago, but I thought it was so fun that I couldn't not post some pictures of it. Anyone who knows Logan knows that he is the hat man. He adores hats. So we thought it only fitting to base his party on one of his favorite books, "You YOU Have a Hat?" by Eileen Spinelli, and we had everyone wear their favorite hat.

2. The next exciting thing that has happened is the weaning of the binky! It was bitter sweet. He was ready for the change, but Ben and I weren't. I think we've had to wean ourselves from the binky more than Logan! He only got it at nap and bedtime and the occassional public situation :-), but man was it nice to have for those 3 hour afternoon naps! Overall, the effort to take the binky away (which wasn't really bad at all) was very much worth the comfort it gave Logan these past two years.

3. His vocabulary has exploded once again and he's forming sentences now. (Referring to a sticker on his cheek: "I want sticker orange, I want blue off.")

4. He's got his colors and some shapes down pretty well.

5. He's singing songs. He loves to sing Happy Birthday and the beginning of the ABC's. (video to come soon).

6. He's going pee in his own potty at times, when he chooses. This is nothing I'm forcing and honestly I'm not ready for potty training quite yet, and I don't think Logan is either. But he goes everytime before bathtime, and will occassionally ask for the potty. It's fun to see how proud he is of himself when he goes!

7. And last, but not least, he loves Mr. Potato Head and loves to sport his accessories.
