Happy 1/2 Birthday Logan!

6 months… 1/2 a Year!? How have you already been with us this long? It’s all happening too fast Mr. Logan and it’s both so very exciting to see you progressing and your little mind growing, but at the same time Momma is sad that it’s flying by. (I HATE that you’re sick today, well – any day really)

– You “reached” for your bottle the other night for the first time (4/1/14)… you’ve been grasping and holding it while you’re eating but you were actually sitting up and reaching to get it out of my hands. You are a hungry boy and you are one smart little guy!
– The socks never stay on… I don’t like socks either Logan.
– You never stay on your back anymore, which has become a small problem in your crib. When you roll over you sometimes don’t like it and cry until we flip you over. BUT when you do calm down on your tummy, you sleep so so well! You especially love to sleep on your side (just like Momma!)
– Some of your 6 months clothes are already too small… what? BUT your feet are chunky and short still… cute.
– We LOVE to go to church and you do so so well in the Nursery and are quite the lady killer with the Teachers. They always are wanting to take you home ;)
– The Napping schedule is going SO much better. We still are taking SUPER short naps – 30-45mins… sometimes 4 a day, sometimes 3. We are learning. You are sleeping through the night until your first feeding (7-8pm until 5:30/6am for a feeding – sometimes until 7am) and then you go right back down until 7:30/8am. Momma thanks you SO much for learning how to sleep through the night.
– Your first REAL taste of food (3/29/14) was avocado… it took a couple days but you loved it by the third day. We have also tried Bananas and Sweet Potatoes… Bananas were definitely not a fave haha!
– Still no teeth just yet…
– You’ve started playing with Toby and Lany a little more and I don’t know if they appreciate the hair pulling… but I say go for it. Toby licks you too much anyways but you think it’s hilarious.
– You LOVE to be outside and take walks. You actually fell asleep in the stroller the other day and I just wheeled you inside to continue your nap. Probably longest nap you’d had in a while. I hope you are an adventurer someday… let’s always make sure and get out of the house!
– You love beat-boxing and dancing with daddy and lately all I have to do is give you a funny look to get a big belly laugh.
– “Kermit” is your friend and you are able to put your paci in yourself now most of the time.
– I feel like you’re going to crawl before I’m ready. One day I’m certain I’m going to look down and you’ll not be where I left you. Push-ups are your new favorite activity. You can sit up with the Boppy fairly easily now too. Not quite by yourself though.

Alyson & Edward are some of the most genuine people I’ve ever met. They are so easy going and were completely ready to be married. No nerves, just ready.

Their day went so flawlessly and they had some amazing help from friends and family. They had a time of worship during their ceremony and it was one of the most special moments I’ve been able to witness in a wedding to date.

They went on to party at the BEAUTIFUL Petroleum Club in downtown Houston … 43rd floor!? (I mean come on!). The views of the city didn’t outshine the wonderful celebration of friends and family though. These people were ready to party!

Alyson & Edward, thank you so much for trusting me and letting me capture your special day! Congratulations you two!

I met up with Grant and his family (who are actually family to my good friend Dana) this past weekend in good ‘ole Boerne, TX. The Crawford family was more than gracious in letting us stay at their lovely house. We are so thankful for your hospitality and the fun weekend away!

Grant will be graduating and heading to CALIFORNIA (awesome) on scholarship for Diving! CONGRATS! Grant, I hope you have an amazing time out there. Too cool!

WHAATTTT??? (spoken in a little yellow Minion voice)… how are we here already? Next month you will have been with us for half a year sir – that’s crazy.

– Still as talkative as ever… you’re also starting to say more syllables and trying to form sentences :) Your little tongue is trying so hard to talk haha!
– You have started to “feel” things… whether it’s rubbing the arm of the chair, playing with mom’s shirt or playing with your hair… or daddy’s funny beard :)
– You roll back to tummy now – NO PROBLEM! How did that happen!? (March 2nd) , for a while there you kept your head down but now you pick it up every time you roll over – look out Logan! … we’re still working on consistency with tummy to back but you are a strong boy! Also, sitting up is way more fun then laying down…
– Totally in 6 month clothes… how did that happen…
– The last couple of weeks we’ve tried to get a napping schedule down… let’s just say we’re working on it – but you are napping in your crib/room (sort of) consistently…
– Drool Bomb… need I say more…
– You LOVE Sophie the Giraffe… nom nom nom… you also love your ring toys.
– You found your feet and love to pull off your socks… silly.
– You “reach” for things that are dangling above you… you go round and round on your play mat multiple times.
– You recognized Momma in a photo the other day – SO fun to see you know who I am. You love FaceTime with Daddy too…
– Itsy Bitsy Spider and White Noise (Rain) calm you down so quickly – I learned that on our first solo road trip without daddy a few weeks ago. Let’s just say it was a long trip ;)
– Bath time is getting more fun – and you LOVE to splash… can’t wait until Summer when we can play in the water!
