Friday’s Fotos: Logan’s Milestones

Logan pooped in the potty yesterday!! (No, I didn’t take a picture of that! 😛 ) He’s super proud of his sticker chart though.

Logan's Sticker Chart

Another thing I don’t have a picture of (bad mommy) – he’s been drinking from a “big boy cup” (non-sippy) and hasn’t spilled! Well…the does get some drops on the floor when he’s taking his cup to the sink, but that hardly counts 🙂

He’s also been counting – to TEN! But he’s sneaky about it. I’ll hear him mumbling something or another and then realize that he’s counting his fingers. Or the blankets on the dresser. Or something else like that. And if you ask him to count, he’ll put a grin on his face and say something like, “One…three….eight…” Lil’ stinker 😛  I DID manage to get him on video…however, it was at bed time and I just happened to have my Flip in my pocket and turned it on…so you can’t really see anything. (And as soon as I turned on the lights and tried again, the little bugger put that grin on his face…)

(15 seconds)

And just something fun…Logan has a rocket ship that Aunt Kahki gave to him for Christmas (he just *loves* the thing!!). Nanny Jessica has him push the button for the countdown and then launches him.

…as you can see, he doesn’t really like to be video taped 😉

Nanny Jessica also has picnics with the kids:

Picnic: Maggie, Logan, and Burke

Milestones

The twins had a GREAT day today at school. They were so excited when I went to pick them up. Burke was talking a mile a minute (surprisingly, Maggie was pretty quiet). They colored, and played with sand, and made bracelets, and went outside, and peed in the potty…sounds like a cool day to me!

We were in the car on the way home and I started talking about Burke’s speech class – which started about an hour after school ended. Burke didn’t want to get out of the car because he wanted to go see Miss Sun* – too cute!! I resorted to bribing him to get him inside the house.

While driving back from speech class, Burke pretended to fall to sleep in his car seat (with a cute little smile on his face). I asked if he was tired and he said, “yes.” I asked if he wanted to take a nap and he said, “yes.” He hasn’t really napped in over a year! And he actually did fall to sleep for about 20 minutes around 4:00.

The only way I got him to wake up was the promise of (yet another) car ride. (We had to go exchange some shoes that I got for the twins – I over estimated their growth.) Both kids wanted shoes that light up. LOL I recall thinking before I had kids that I’d never be the kind of parent who gets light-up shoes for my kids…mm hmm. Both Burke and Maggie were jumping all over the house with their new shoes on tonight. (I took a video, but it’s still on my camera.)

In Logan news…Burke has this habit of saying “Hi Logan!” over and over again – with his face right in Logan’s face. This morning, Logan very clearly said “Hi!” back to him. Pretty cute 🙂

Logan was also pretty darn squirmy while nursing tonight. We’d cut it down to just nursing right before bed (forgot to nurse him when he woke up on his BIRTHDAY of all days…ooops! BAD mommy!). Squirmy while still attached just isn’t pleasant, so I bagged that and went to get the sippy cup. . . we will probably just end up doing the sippy from now on, which is just fine – he IS 6 days over a year old 😉
