B.I.G. Boy

Logan went tee tee in the potty last night for the very first time! I asked him if he wanted to potty after I stripped him down for his bath. He usually just plays with the potty lid or stands on it to reach the lights.

Andrew and I were talking while his bath water ran and when I glanced at Logan I noticed some dripping, if you will. I noticed a small puddle on the floor, too. (I had removed the guard because he is very distracted by it). Logan looked at me, almost a little suprised himself, and said, "I did it Mommy!" There was lots of dancing, high-fiving, and cheering to follow.

I know that he may not do it again for months, but it was just so exciting! Then I sat on the couch and cried while Andrew put him to bed. Where did my baby go?

Logan also talks about poop a lot lately. He reached into his diaper the other day when the twins were here and freaked out when his fingers came out dirty. He was supposed to be settling down in his crib for a nap and then we heard him crying, which is very unusual for him once he's in bed. I went in to check on him and I have to admit that I was a little freaked out myself. Since then we talk about poop a lot. "Touch poop." "No, Logan, we don't touch poop." "Mommy touch poop." "No, Logan. Poop is yucky. We don't touch poop." "Henry touch poop." "Logan, poop is yucky and neither you or your friends should touch poop." And tonight while I was at a meeting I got a text from Andrew that said Logan kept pointing at his bean and cheese quesadilla during dinner and saying poop. What a boy!

Here's Logan the other night. Can't blog without pictures, right?

Just for you, Mom

Macie and Marlie's Visit

Our friends Mac and Ali brought their twin 16 month old girls up to see us this weekend. Aside from a quick trip to the zoo we stayed home wrangling children and watching football. TCU and ATM both won, so it was a good time.

We always have a great time with Mac and Ali, but the dynamic of our time together has changed substantially over the past 2 years. Now our memories are of chasing each other's children around and watching four adults scramble to clean up one childs vomit. It really is easier to raise children in a village though. The extra hands were appreciated by all!

Marlie had a one day bug, threw up once and ran a fever. She was a trooper though and Macie and Logan haven't caught it yet, so that's good.

Macie and Marlie are just getting the hang of walking. They are such sweet girls with very different personalities. Macie is crazy and the leader. Marlie is more laid back. Logan did a great job of sharing his toys and being nice. He was always asking where the other twin was. I don't think he ever figured out which was which.

Thanks for visiting friends! We'll head your way next time. . . with an infant!

Trick or Treat?!

Logan went on his first trick or treat adventure last night. We walked our normal path through the neighborhood in the wagon just stopping at the houses of neighbors we knew (maybe 10 houses). Fortunately, we attended a block party on Friday, so knew lots more neighbors this weekend than last.

We practiced saying "trick or treat" before we left the house and by house 3 or so he had the hang of it - depending on how threatening the person who answered the door looked, of course. Our neighbors directly across the street was the first stop and they were very patient as we worked on the "thank you" part of getting candy. He seemed a little overwhelmed by the whole thing and would just freeze. But like I said, he warmed up. Most houses received a thank you or a shy smile.

After each house, he would pull the candy out of his bag and say, "open it Mommy." He had several M&Ms on our journey.

We were supposed to be out with our friend Asher, but he was very ill this weekend. Poor Jenn spent today at the Dr. and ER with him. AND she has a one-week old baby, too.

Not too sure about the floating head

Time to catch up on the DVR!

I do wish the Ranger's could've kept this World Series thing going, but I'm also very glad to be done watching baseball. I'm a Rangers fan, sure. But I'm not die hard. If we're picking teams, I pick them. It's just that I really don't like watching baseball in general and so I'm not as heart-broken as most are right now. I'll probably take a lot of heat for this post.

If the Frogs had lost, though, there'd be tears. We're #3 folks! We MUST win against Utah this weekend and then BCS Bowl here we come again! Except I can't attend this year because I'll be too pregnant. . .
