You have got quite the moves little man... Always have... But the best is when you sporadically break out in the middle of nowhere... And ESPECIALLY when I don't even realize music is playing. Yesterday we went to breakfast at Denny's before we hit up lap time with the Big Guy (Santa Claus!!).. When we walked out of Denny's you immediately busted out some moves. There was music playing from the outside speakers and you took full advantage! And then got some more people to join you.. **Don't mind what daddy calls my creeper laugh, you just CRACK ME UP!!

Just realized that I never posted your Eleventh month photo collage.. Because let's face it I'm lucky to get your pictures let alone actually write about you:/.. Although right at the end of your eleven months you started to REALLY walk. You took your first steps quite a bit ago but you you really, really, REALLY started walking without any help and preferred over crawling about a week before you turned one!!.. Anyways here is at least a photo montage of your ever so cute sticky chest pictures:)

Logan has been taking small 1-2 steps for about a month now... Starting last week he started doing 3, 4, 5, 6 steps and walking on his own from furniture to furniture... He isn't very daring on that part yet... Although he is a little daredevil at every other thing he does... Unfortunately, I haven't caught a good video of him taking those steps... This is the best I can do for right now and I usually catch him RIGHT before it is a crash down into bedtime routine!! So excuse the fussy little man in the video.. Yayyyyyy Logan!!

Well if we are being technical you are extremely close to Ten months at this point... But I finally had time to upload your nine months pictures!!... You are so incredibly funny and we laugh all day long... You still take three naps a day and sleep through the night... So that means a happy baby and a happy mommy & daddy!!.. You are the greediest baby ever when it comes to food... If you hear as much as a wrapper crinkle you are all over that person... Hilarious yet semi embarassing!! You are not starving chunky monkey!!.. We still haven't tried dairy again per the suggestion of your doctor... Since we tried to switch you back to a regular formula when you were six months old and your little body rejected it, she says that you have a better chance to be okay with whole milk when you turn one if we keep dairy from you now... I hope so because i would really prefer for you to be on a regular milk versus a soy!! As far as other foods, you pretty much LOVE everything.. I'm not kidding, EVERYTHING... Although citrusy fruits seem to not be agreeing with you right now... You LOVE fruits, especially Watermelon, blueberries, mandarin oranges, bananas and pears... You have finally started to eat meats, all meats and you still love all of your veggies.. See, I wasn't kidding you my boy love to eat... Thankfully daddy and I are trying to keep you on a healthy eating regiment and you are agreeing with all of it!! You take three, eight ounce bottles a day and I have began the process of switching you to sippy cups... It isn't going to be hard, I'm pretty sure you would have switched a long time ago if I would have let you!! You have mastered crawling and pull up ON EVERYTHING... You have started to push behind a shopping cart at school but I am pretty sure I am boycotting getting you any type of push toy for home... SLOW DOWN!! Your vocabulary is growing: Da-da, Daddy, Ma-ma, Mommy, Nannie, Ziggy, Kitty, Quack-Quack,Ba-ba, Bye-Bye... Daddy is so proud he taught you how to clap and he taught you this past weekend where your nose is... I don't think you fully have your own nose location down but you LOVE to find daddy's!!... You weigh 24 pounds and are 29 inches long... You are mostly in 12-18 everything... But can definitely fit in 18 months one piecers and pj's... You were size 4 night time diapers and size 4 day diapers!!... You have a pretty stellar 10 months birthday coming up and some pretty amazing events coming up to go along with it!!.. You will be baptized on July 7th, which also happens to be daddy's 29th birthday!!.. That weekend also kicks off our two weeks stay with nannie and poppie, WE CAN'T WAIT FOR THAT!!!... Until next month sweet baby boy!!! We love you oh so much!!

You are so close to walking... Put something in front of you while you are standing, forget it, you are GONE!!... We thought you were a fast mover crawling, YIKES you are not going to walk baby boy you will be constantly running... Hopefully you will run this lingering baby weight right off of mommy!!! :) Love you little man!!

I accidentally happened across a bedtime ritual that I knew nothing of, about 2 months ago... Since my days consist of Logan, Logan, Logan (and seven other babes), bedtime is usually daddy's time with Logan.. Bath (which he still loves), Lotion down (which he still hates), pj's, bottle.. BUT there is something so special that Shawn started with Logan in between pj's and bottle... There is a picture of Nannie, Poppie and Logan from the day that he was born that sits on the bookshelf... It has always been there because with the distance I always have wanted Logan to recognize Nannie and Poppie without showing any signs of shyness.. (Skype is a blessing and I truly believe that Logan has formed a special bond with them regardless of miles) Now what I happened upon was Shawn showing Logan the picture every night and saying Night Night to Nannie/Poppie... That in itself choked me up... I can't help but hurt when I think of what an even more special bond this little man would have with them if we were closer... I remember growing up and watching friends with extremely involved grandparents at every function and couldn't help but think how nice a bond like that would be... I know if we were closer Logan would have that with my parents and that makes my heart hurt for him and for them.. NOW in case you haven't teared up yet this video will get you... This was the next thing that just put me straight over the edge... Good Luck with the whole dry eyes thing!!

This was taken about three weeks ago!!.. But it is still cute just the same... We have come to find out that Logan is a very quick learner... As in you show him something once and he is on board copying you... Shawn has been learning this the hard way by teaching Logan some naughty tricks... Insert: This trick caused us to have to lower the crib to its lowest level!! Enjoy

It has become a routine that at bathtime little man rolls and rolls and rolls around in only his diaper on our bed... We also added a bear that nannie got him for one of his showers before he was here!!.. Logan loves it!! It also shows us how close this little guy is to being mobile!!.. Yikes!!.. I love this smiling little goofy boy!!

This past week has been a rollercoaster... Shawn's dad had a heart attack last Sunday.. He is doing okay but has a very long, struggling road ahead of him... So on top of our normal chaos Shawn took the week off of work and has been with his dad day & night... I have been visiting on my lunch break and then bringing the baby up after school... I know the thought of the baby at the hospital is a little creepy... BUT it is a specialty heart hospital and extremely, extremely clean, not in the whole sterile way but this heart hospital is where it is at!! Anyways, what does a baby do when in a hospital room where he brightens the mood?? He learns new sounds of course!! That makes him over the top cuteness!!

We had a sick day today.. After going back to the doctors, with the same results... Not in lungs or ears THANKFULLY.. Yet too young for any type of medication.. But little man is still pretty pathetic.. Soo we had a little overstimulation going on to make the boy happy or a couple of minutes, somewhere other than my arms that is.. This lead to attacking everything with a fresh lick.. Wash, Clorox, Sanitize, REPEAT.. Get these germs out of here..

I consider us lucky... Logan has been in childcare for three months and so far he had a mild cold and a stomach bug.. BUT we had to bring him to the emergency care because he now has Croup.. It is not a severe case but pathetic just the same.. I'm frustrated because I feel like it could have been prevented... BUT you live, learn and move on!! I love this little boy and it breaks my heart that he is in any pain.. Here is his pathetic little voice: Please get better little man!!

I was looking through the pictures and videos on my phone today and came across a total gem that I forgot to post way back in December... From when Logan & I were in New York... I love it and think it captures their relationship so well!!

Shots are no fun.. I myself hate shots.. Logan must take after his father because this round of shots he literally whimpered during and after the shot in each leg.. BUT we have definitely developed a pattern.. About five hours after shots little man is in PAIN.. Talk about break your heart.. At one point he stopped shrieking looked up at me with those tear stained baby blues and started immediately shrieking again.. I couldn't take it.. I am putting this boy in a bubble because I will
NOT have a very hard time dealing with anything that hurts this little man... It also appears that his shots give him a fever that usually starts about 12 hours later.. His is on his third dose of Tylenol since last night to try and keep it down.. Thankfully it hasn't been above 100.5 but I still don't like it.. But I am going to let Logan tell you in his own words how he feels about it...
**Some official stats**
Weight: 16lbs 9oz (72 percentile)
Height: 26 Inches (76 percentile)
Head: (Shawn's pretty excited) 16.9cm (68 pecentile!!)
**Some other 4 months facts I forgot to share**
You are pretty much exclusively in 6 months clothing..
But can still fit in some 3-6... I really hope you stop going up in size because your spring wardrobe is definitely all 6-12 months.. Good thing Nannie and Poppie will be in Florida next month.. That means weekend visits and a hopefully outcome of your spring clothes not being a total waste!!
NOW I need to go and give you a surplus of snuggles... I hate the fact of you not feeling good BUT I do love giving myself an excuse of being able to snuggle you 24/7 literally!!
