Logan turned one year and one month (aka 13 months) old today! I can’t believe how quickly he has grown. Just a year ago I was adjusting to having two small kids, recovering from a c-section, and wishing for the day I would once again get an uninterrupted nights sleep. One year later; Logan sleeps all night, it’s Kurt that’s more likely to interrupt my sleep at night. Kurt and Logan usually like playing together. I am still adjusting to having two small kids, please tell me I will have a completely clean house again. Someday? Since Logan had his first birthday a month ago and I haven’t blogged about it yet I thought it would be a perfect time to post about it.
Logan had a great day. We started it off with a visit to the doctor’s office. Where we found out he is 22 pounds 10 ounces (75th percentile), 29 1/2 inches tall (50th percentile), and his head is 18 3/4 inches around (90th percentile). As you can tell he is a pretty healthy boy, with lots of room for that growing brain. It is kind of nerdy but I love reading the handout that the doctor gives us that tells me the developmental milestones he will be hitting, what he should be eating, and what to watch out for in terms of safety. I especially love to read the developmental milestones and think, “oh he does that” or “I can’t wait for him to do that next.” The other highlight of the day was that we had my brother and his family in town and they came to celebrate with us.
For his party we kept it pretty simple. We got him a gift, a helium balloon, and I made him a cake. He was so fun to watch eat his cake; he started out not sure what to do but once I gave him a taste of frosting he dug right in. He got so messy; we found frosting in odd places in his high chair for the next several days.
At his birthday he was saying Mom and Dad, waving goodbye, and just being plain fun. Now he is still a ton of fun and energy, he is starting to show a little more interest in walking, and he says bye now too. He is so cute in the morning when Brandon gets ready to leave he will give him a hug and then say, “bye Dad” while waving. So fun! It does make it hard for Brandon to say good bye. Just this week he has started to sign please (M&Ms might have been a good helper in learning that:). He has started stacking everything. Logan also continues to pester Kurt every chance he gets. Overall we are so lucky to have him. Logan has been a blessing in so many ways to our family and we are glad that he is a part of it. I love looking back at how much he has grown and learned and look forward to all the growth and learning he has ahead of him. We love you Logan!
Here is a look at him month by month.
