This: More importantly that first little Mickey Mouse onesie!!... Well I remember being in Disney so elated on the coattails of finding out that sweet Baby S was on board for the long haul and searching high and low in every single park for the PERFECT gift for the sweet baby... It was extremely hard because we had no idea if we were expecting a little minnie or a little mickey:)... We settled on the Mickey Mouse onesie because let's face it Mickey is in every little boy's AND girl's hearts!! Well break my heart but here is that gift in full effect!!

Something I forgot... And how could I... This little man has a LEGIT temper... I mean TEMPER!!... Seriously he snaps when something isn't going his way... Here are some of those melt downs...

WOW... Little man it doesn't seem like a month has already gone by... That sure went fast and I am sure that the rest of the months are not going to slow... We have completely rearranged our lives because let's face it this life is now all about Logan and we all live in Logan's World... We wouldn't change it for ANYTHING!! You are the excitement and meaning of our days AND nights!!

These are some serious lips!!.. We love those lips.. Mommy has given you the nickname Mr. Luscious Lips... I am sure at some point in your life I will not like it if someone else, a girl especially, calls you this BUT right now you are my little luscious lips man:)
Thankfully the rest of your cord finally fell off a week and a half ago... I was soooo excited because this meant you could finally get a proper bathy!! Which you now get every other night and for the most part you LOVE... You don't like getting in because your MAJOR hate in life is being cold... I mean blood curdling screams if you are in any sense cold!! Anyways for the majority of the time you love bathy time... And the snuggling with daddy in the towel afterwards.. You even like talking to Nannie & Poppie on skype in your bathy:).. You DO NOT like your lotion down after bathy and of course daddy makes mommy do that part!!

Well from the second we saw your face on the 4D ultrasound there was no denying that you my dear are your fathers child!! Identical to say the least... The very first moment I laid eyes on you it was like looking at a reflection of your daddy. There have been a couple (by a couple I mean MAYBE two) people that have said "Oh I can see you in him too, Shannon"... I laugh and politely say "I don't think I can agree with you"... But this is okay to me because you are perfect and beautiful to look at always... This is where I come in, there is one minor imperfection.. You my love have been cursed with "The Wright Feet"... I try to say it lovingly but these feet are horrible... You will probably never see Poppie's toes because he keeps those pups locked up in his white socks & sneakers or house shoes... You can thank that man along with his mom, your great-grandma Wright (God rest her soul) for the sad sad excuse of toes that we share:)... I like to say that our toes are soooo ugly that they are sooo cute..<
When we left the hospital Logan was borderline on the jaundice scale... We had a check up three days later... What they found was no surprise to this mommy. I had noticed starting the day before that little man was turning in to a little orangey man:) So what did we do??.. We caught some rays!!

Your daddy is pretty crazy when it comes to gameday around The Smaciak household... Literally CRRRRAAAAYYYZAAAAAYY.. People tend to think that playing dress up with babies is limited to little girls & big bows... No no no my little man your daddy has succeeded to go overboard with your Gamecock wardrobe... Mommy even had to go out this weekend and get you another hat because heaven forbid you only had one and you had already dirtied it for the day!!.. Here are some of your little wardrobe changes:)

We LOOOOOOOOOOOVE Nannie & Poppie and miss them terribly... One of the worst things in this life is not being able to share everyday with these amazing people... I thought it was bad when I would get homesick... NOW that Logan is here it is magnified by about 120%++++... I hate the fact that as he changes daily that his Nannie & Poppie can't witness it... Skype does ease the pain a little bit but we can't wait for the next visit:)

When we got home from the hospital Nannie & Poppie had decorated the house to welcome you... It was so sweet and fun to see the house covered in an array of blue!!

After we calmed down from visitors and began to get used to Logan being in the room with us at the hospital, we were ready to BOUNCE... Not that it was uncomfortable, honestly it wasn't that bad BUT the every couple hours of vitals and being woken up was a bit much... So to our amazement by Friday after being in the hospital for only a day and a half after having the baby my doctor said "Well, I have a c-section to do really quick and then I will be back to get your discharge papers ready!!".. I was super excited... Well at that point it was like a rush, people were in and out trying to get all the legit things done so that we could get out of there... Everyone that I talked to was shocked that I was getting out so early... At the time I was surprised too but then thinking back I wasn't ALL that surprised... I told Shawn that if I knew that all pregnancies and labors would be the way my experience was I would have ten babies.. Honestly, I kept waiting for the pain to come, and waiting and waiting and waiting... Well thankfully it never came!!.. So we strapped Logan in to his sweet little carseat with his sweet little Sailor man outfit on and his sweet little stuffed lamb and we hit the road!!!...

Just because I love these two men and this is one of my favorites right now... One of my favorite things is watching this man be an incredible daddy... I always knew that he was going to be amazing but I didn't know how amazing until about oh IMMEDIATELY after watching him hold his first born child for the first time!!.. There is no one else in the world I would rather have as my partner in parenthood... To be redundent he is AMAZING and I think that our little family is pretty amazing too!!

Poppie... There are no better arms to be held in than this man's... (Well except maybe your daddy's)... Your Poppie is infactuated with you and you are with him... There were many days/nights when you first came home from the hospital that you sat with your Poppie for 2-3 hours on end without moving a muscle... Today Poppie went to Burlington for his yearly check-up on the stint he has due to the stroke he suffered 7 years ago... I thank god everyday that he helped to keep your Poppie safe and suffer little damages to his body because of the stroke... His check up turned out great, no movement or blockage!!.. I hope that you know each and every day of your life how special you are to have a Poppie as wonderful as yours... He is one of a kind and would do everything/anything for you and for that you are luckier than you will ever know!!

Sooo many people were so ready to meet you that they could barely contain themselves... You had many people who were waiting the second you came out into this world!!.. By the time we made it to the room mommy had to tell everyone to back up because I hadn't counted all your fingers or toes yet!!... But I didn't keep people at bay for long because they couldn't wait to get their hands on you!!!
