TWO Months!!

What a busy busy past couple of days this big two months old has had!! On Friday he went to his 8 week check up.. His Stats: Weight: 12pounds 10ounces (63rd percentile) Height: 23 Inches (55th percentile) Head Circ.(Only because we like to make fun of Shawn): 15 3/4 (80th percentile) Love it!!
Logan started school this morning AND it was his First Halloween!! Which is where his "Two" can be found for his "Two" months pictures (On his booty of his costume!!).. Which also made him Derek Jeter and not just a Yankees player!! He did so amazing at school it is ridiculous.. Honestly I was a little nervous because of all of the cuddling I did with him the past week.. But SERIOUSLY this baby was so happy and content watching all of his friends and staring at the walls... And SERIOUSLY we put him in his crib for nap with the rest of the babes and SERIOUSLY the child put himself to sleep within minutes WHAT THE?! Anways I am so proud of him and myself!!
Logan is officially in his crib for naps and night time sleeps.. His doctor cut him back to 4 ounces with 2tsp of rice cereal because of his Acid Reflux which came back with a projectile vomit vengenance!! It really seems to be helping him and he is so content between feedings which are spreading out too.. It also is helping him at night because he is sleeping a 6 hour stretch which is AMAZING... He has pretty much outgrown all 0-3 clothes and is outgrowing Carter's 3 months clothes.. He is wearing 3-6 months outfits and is probably going to be in 6 months clothes very soon!! One thing we did find out is little man doesn't do so well with shots.. He was extremely uncomfortable Friday evening/night and very whimpering fussy which broke my heart because you are so helpless... He then broke a fever on Saturday that lasted pretty much all day but by that evening he was back to his silly boy self!! We love this little guy so much and can't imagine life any other way!!

Three more days of loving on this boy like crazy... And loving on him some more... And more... And more because nobody likes shots:(

Four more days of any time of the days snuggles with my man... I will still get snuggles but I will also have to give snuggles to 7 other little ones in our class:)

Five more days of Logan sleeping wherever, whenever he wants... And if that just happens to be in my arms, so be it!!... Because next week we are strict schedule bound!!

Six more days of me & my boy:) And I am going to cherish every single one of these smiles.... Smiles that only this mama can get from this little man!!

Seven more days of Mommy and Logan.. Thankfully I have the luxury of the little man joining me at work... If not, this momma would either be having 24 hours of anxiety OR be jobless... Kudos to all working moms & stay at home moms, both jobs are extremely hard!! And after getting a tiny glimpse at both sides, I feel it is always greener on the other side.. I am just glad that I get to experience both at the same time:)

A Favorite Passtime...

Logan LOVES to skype with his Nannie and Poppie!!... He gets giddy (Well, with mommy standing behind the computer) but stares and stares at the computer... I haven't decided if he's staring at Nannie & Poppie or the blue light on the computer :)... But I do know that either way he loves to hear those voices!!!... Although Nannie & I have decided that sometimes skype definitely isn't enough and that sometimes it just makes us more and more lonesome from each other... BUT the countdown is on, Nannie will be here in T-Minus 19 days:)

Bathy Time...

There has been a witching hour(s) in the Smaciak household and hopefully it goes out the door with the ghouls and goblins of Halloween!!.. But something that breaks those hours up is Bathy time... Logan LOVES it... But it only lasts until the lotion comes out!! Enjoy!

Watch Out...

For this forocious guy...
When Logan was 5 1/2 days old YES 5 1/2 days, we (myself, Shawn, nannie & Logan) all packed up and headed 2 hours north to the other side of Charlotte... Were we nuts? Absolutely, was it worth it? Absolutely!! The ladies at Dimples & Curls Photography were absolutely amazing... This lion picture was one of MANY pictures taken that day... One of 25 that we narrowed down... One of the shots in a 5 hour session... FIVE HOURS!! 5 days after giving birth!! Every single second was worth it... And it didn't feel like that long because Christine and her mom were that amazing!! I am so extremely glad that we booked this session and that we have these amazing photographs to look back on for the rest of Logan's life... Lets face it those newborn days are gone and only getting farther away.. My smiley little big six weeks old looks nothing like that little man in the picture anymore!!

Oh Little Pumpkin!!

We took you to your very first pumpkin patch yesterday and you absolutely Looooved... Lets be real you slept through the entire process, like always. Peope keep asking if you have your days and nights confused because you are constantly snoozing throughout the day but you really sleep well at night too.. As in well I mean from about 8:30-11:30, 12:00-4/5, 5:30-7:30/8... To me I think that is fabulous for an almost 6 week old!!.. Anways event though you slept for most of the Pumpkin experience we sure had fun with you... Aunt Tara & Uncle Brett came with us too!!

I really just wish time would stand still... I love the baby, baby age but apparently Logan does not... He is seriously ridiculously strong and wants to be so grown up... He is happiest sitting up and watching what is going on around him... He has had excellent control over his head (for small periods of time) pretty much since birth... So combine those two things and we got this:

Just Looking in the Mirror...

Not only do these two have identical features/profiles but I honestly don't know who admires who more?!.. Their daddy/son bond melts my heart and I am loving every second that I get to witness!!

Oh My Personality!!

There are alot of times (by alot I mean pretty much always) that you are OH SO SERIOUS... Honestly we laugh because you are sooooo serious, your perfect little scowl:) We joke and either call you an old man OR tell you that you will have scowl lines by the age of two... But let me tell you what!!??... When you aren't being serious your personality SHINES through... You are soooo funny and cute and oh so cuddly... We are constantly laughing at you and trying to get that personality to shine through... Here is your Striped Green Bandit personality shining through:

Calm of all Calms...

What makes this baby completely 100% go from fussy and thrashing around to a comatose stare monster?!
That would be none other than the fabulous show The Sing Off!! Logan absolutely loves noise but for some reason when The Sing Off comes on he is like silent or more recently he has started to dance and sing along... It really is the funniest thing... We tried it with The X Factor and no such luck!! The Sing Off is the only charmer for him!!
And here is Logan's Video Dancing & Singing Debut!!
