Celebrating Logan's birthday is almost as fun as celebrating my own and I love that we get to keep celebrating it this weekend.
Logan picked out the girls shirts. And we took him to breakfast. Our little family of 5, it was the first time we have gone out by ourselves, it only took 10 months!
These are some recent pictures of Mr. Logan.
This past year has been a little tough, what with birthing and raising the girls and Logan has been with me every step of the way. Some days I have been tired and grumpy and just plain busy from trying to keep our house running and taking care of the needs of the family. Logan ends up getting the brunt of my grumpiness, which I feel guilty about.
We have been playing a game where we use the sheet above and we think of a word for every letter of the alphabet and I write it down. A couple weeks a go he said he wanted to write, so I let him at it. The first word he wrote was CAT, the second one was LOGAN, and the third was MOM. I helped him with EDEN, and he was planning on writing TESSA, but he realized he needed to practice writing the letter "S" a few times first, it has been a little tricky for him. I never realized how amazing it would be to see the letters M-O-M written down. But it meant a lot to me. An awful lot. And all my worries about taking care of the girls and not having as much time for him were put to rest. He loves his sisters. He truly does.
We went in for his 4 year check-up today, he is 47 lbs. and 45''. He is above the 95% on both. He is my big guy and I love him. I am glad to have him. 4 years ago I never knew what it would be like to be a mom, now I know a little.
