I Like The Swings!

Logan went in a swing for the second time at the park yesterday and he luvs it! He likes watching all the other kids, he was talking non-stop to this little girl in the swing next to him and she just kept staring at her! Probably thought he was crazy!

Monkey Power!

Pictures Below:

So Logan is doing great playing and keeping himself busy while I get ready in the morning.

He is also super happy at mealtimes! He loves to eat and seems to be filling out an gaining more weight.

There's no pictured or this one but last night we had a little scare. He broke out in a terrible rash that started to welt up badly and it was after the doctor's office was closed so we took him to the ER. (By the way, the new Legacy Randall Children's Hospital is so nice! The ER visit was one of the best ER visits we've ever had - nice, clean, efficient, friendly and high-tech! The beds also weigh the kids! I guess I don't have to tell you ZGF was the architect that designed and built this place!)

Anyhow, the ONLY thing we can figure out is that there was something contamination with the take-out container that had the steamed rice in it, which is what Logan ate right before the breakout. We know it wasn't the rice because he always eats rice, PLUS he ate some of that SAME rice at the restaurant earlier in the day with no issues. Sounds crazy but it had to be the container, what a freak accident, right? Anyways kinda scary cuz he was going from bad to worse really fast and we weren't sure about swelling in his throat, etc etc so we ran him in. As we would have done, they have him Benadryl an he was such a trooper thru the whole visit. Slept well an seems to be ok today, eating like normal and being his silly self! Talking up a storm. Visiting the nutritionist today to see if she has recommendations on his wheat/dairy free diet. We'll see how it goes, took a month to get in!

Logan and I decided to get out of the house this morning and go have breakfast. He's doing great in a high chair now in restaurants and loves to feed himself. (I don't always love that part!). Another beautiful day in Portland, sunny and no clouds in the sky!

9 Months Already

Can you believe it's already been 9 months!?!?!? Time has sure flown by for us, that's for sure. We had our 9 month check up on Monday for Logan and he weighed in at 17 lbs 4.5 oz, which means he gained almost 1 lb in a month! So happy about that, especially with all the flack we have been getting from the pediatrician during the last few visits. (Which, by the way, our next appointments are with A NEW pediatrician.FINALLY!)

Anyhow, Logan was 28 inches long and his head was 18.5 inches around. Big noggin! So growth in all areas, which is good. We continue to try new foods with him and his face continues to break out, poor guy! It seems to bounce back a bit quicker though now, which is nice.

We've also noticed he is getting bored with his regular baby foods so Roberto figured out he just wants more textures maybe, tonight he had bits of chopped up broccoli that had been sautéed along with his usual meat and some brown rice and green beans and he seemed to like it.

What else is new with Mr. Man? He's doing more and more faces and getting more and more vocal....he sure loves attention from his parents! Just becoming a talker and definitely voicing his opinion on things now. We can see his inherited stubbornness for sure....must be from his dad's side of the family! Ha! Still no crawling but he does seem more interested in it, think he is trying but needs to get more confidence, he leans forward and kinda rocks back and forth a little but then chickens out and sits back on his behind. Silly boy! He is sitting up really well though so that's good, and he is all over the house in his walker!

Enjoy these videos!

....brownies! I ran into Safeway the other day looking for a specific baby food made by their organic brand and ended up stumbling upon this deliciousness! Never had Fresh Meadow gluten free stuff before so decided to try it since it was also lactose free. The fudge brownie was yummy, the chocolate cake....not so great. I also have their chocolate chip cookie dough I got on sale at New Seasons to bake so we'll see how that goes! I recommend the brownie though...
