Getting Older

Boy someone is sure looking older these days...and in the last few months what he says has more context as well.  His questions make more sense and fit with the subject we are talking about or they are more thoughtful....our little boy is growing up!

Happy Wed!

What a fun, busy morning we had today.  Took Logan to Oaks Park for their Preschool Rides special, every Tue and Wed from 930-1130 they do all the kiddie rides and it's not super crowded.  They do a cookie and story time after but Logan didn't want to stay and we were off to find the famous Kyra's!  It's delicious! Famous for their cupcakes on the Food Network's Cupcake Wars and I can see why!  We had a cinnamon roll too and boy are they sugary!  But delicious!!!  Been trying to get there for months and finally made it.  Worth the wait!

Oaks Park wasn't a huge hit for Logan - glad we didn't pay full price and drive too far, went on the Tilt a Whirl first and that's what scared him.  Dunno why cuz Disneyland was much scarier rides!!  Silly boy!  Weather was awesome though, 80s all wk, 90s last wk and starting Friday over 90 again all next wk!  Hot!

My little Logan wakes up every morning happy and full of life, since day 1!  You can't find a better baby and now little boy.  (Which he reminds me of every time  call him my baby.  😕. "I'm not a baby, I'm a boy."  O yeah, you are."

Time if flying by, he will be 3 this month!  Cannot believe it.  He's getting taller but not fatter, poor thing can't break 30 lbs but that's ok he's healthy and that's what's important.  Working on letter sounds and putting letters together to make words and he is memorizing how to spell little words here and there so some progress.

Looking for a possible pre-school once a week this fall and then next year as well, maybe more.  Have to keep researching, the few I found previously were spendy, just need to look for other options.

Roberto has a few days off after today so maybe we can spend some local time together as a family which would be nice, he's never able to go do the fun things we do duri g the week together like the zoo or OMSI or movies or crafts!  So we will see what happens.

Potty training is still in full effect - he doesn't wanna poop in it but everything else seems to be working.  I don't venture out with undies on too much yet, that will be the true test, but at home he doesn't wear anything but undies.  Pull-ups when we go out and a diaper at night.  He's pretty good about holding it even with his pull up, just a lot of bathroom visits every time se come and go!

Well it's gonna be a busy full long weekend, enjoy!

Been busy here!  Crafts at home are always a favorite and easy way to pass the time - keep saying I will out a bin or box together with random craft supplies and I keep forgetting!  Want to learnt I make more crafts with regular household items we toss everyday - good for me too cuz I'm not crafty!

Art Party!

Logan had an art party yesterday, 20 kids total!  Packed but lots of fun and creativity!  He loves arts and crafts!

Had a fun morning at OMSI with some friends, new dinosaur exhibit and Logan loves dinosaurs!  Sounds like we missed the pouring rain too!

Potty training is going well....no accidents yet - only pull ups out and underwear in the house!  Diaper at night though cuz that will take longer but happy with the progress!

Sunny Day

One of Logan's favorite things to say is "It's such a sunny day!" And today it really is!  All this week is supposed to be nice and warm!  Went to breakfast with friends and went to a nearby park with water fountains and fun, and walked to another park.  Good day and now he's out!  Great nap!

Well we have been busy this past few weeks.  Went to Salem to hang with some friends and went to their Children's Museum so that's what some of the pics are below, we are drawing this morning and headed to Chuck E Cheese soon!  1st time!  

Logan is a chatterbox, asking lots of questions and also testing us!  Talked to a friend the other day and she said her daughter went thru the "terrible 3's" which seems like what we are in for a little bit.  Testing his boundaries, saying no, just regular kid stuff but it's ok!  He's learning quickly what's acceptable and not!  He's a good boy though, have to admit that.   Always been so good.  

Potty training is still happening too, getting better and better, no diaper at home and he is learning when he has to go and sit in the potty vs just going in his pants.  We are headed to Disneyland in a few wks so afterwards hopefully we can get rid of diapers during the day for good!  Long process!

Logan had a fun morning at OMSI yesterday, although he's been a little on and off this week.  Monday he barfed all over Roberto's iPad in the car and all over his car seat!  Poor guy!  Not sure what caused that.  

Tue I spent all day trying to get the smell out of the car seat, especially the straps!  Internet said vinegar so I wiped it down twice, each time letting it air dry with the fan.  Seems to be better but I think it still smells.  Ugh!  So....may be buying a new car seat in the near future!  Disgusting!

Last night again Logan was really out of it.  He finally took a decent nap yesterday so should have been well rested but was trying to pass out - had a fever - so he slept in our room which meant little to no sleep for us!  :(.  That kid flails all over the place at night!  (Just like his Momma, or so I'm told!).  Fever is better this morning but just vegging in the house - eating and drinking (and bossing me around) so he must be feeling better!  

It has been raining buckets here and is super windy today so staying in isn't bad.   Hope the weekend is better and everyone is healthy tomorrow cuz we have to go to work!

Movie Time!

Decoded to take Logan to a McMenamins for lunch and a movie today - saw the Lego Movie!  It is pouring rain outside so a good day to go to the movies.

First time I have taken him to a movie and it worked out well.  We ate a burger and fries while watching and since it was an 1130a showing on a weekday it was pretty empty.  He talked some and walked around the row but overall did pretty good.  (And enjoyed some M&Ms I smuggled in too!)

Happy Friday

Just picking up a few things at Trader Joes this morning....

Wow this has been a crazy few days with all this snow!  Hasn't snowed this much in Portland since 2008!  Love the snow but we are getting a little stir crazy inside!  Comcast has been busy fixing cable despite the weather!  3rd round of the storm is in effect now, it's snowing again!  Will take Logan out again later when I make him a homemade snowsuit out of a trash bag!  Otherwise he gets too wet and cold and both of us still seem to have a faucet for a nose again!  :(

Done a few projects, watched movies and tv, baked and cooked but on the hint for another craft project this afternoon after his nap and am sure we will be in again tomorrow so need ideas for tomorrow too and Roberto will be in on Mon so this poor kid.  Gotta entertain him somehow!

Either way he's always smiling and laughing!
