“Cherish these moments because before you know it he will be grown and moving out of the house.” I can’t tell you how many times we have heard these sorted “pearls of wisdom” from loved ones / friends / complete strangers since Logan was born. Although I do appreciate the sentiment, I can’t help but admit that it does touch a raw nerve with me. … Continue reading Cherishing Moments
Spoon feeding began this week! We did a few days of cereal before beginning the applesauce. He loves both! He thinks the applesauce is a little sour from the look on his face, but he wiggles for more every time. The 6 oz bottles just don’t seem to be “doing it” for him anymore, so Corey and I both agreed that it was time to move … Continue reading A New Outlook on Life
Yesterday Logan learned how to make raspberries with his mouth. It’s now his new favorite trick. He does this “gasping” noise (that scares the life out of you until you realize that he is doing it on purpose) to start. This is quickly followed by the raspberries–lots and lots of raspberries.

We still have not heard anything at all from the state in regards to home visits to precede the court hearing. It worries me so much because I just well…I want this adoption to be finalized.

(Or should I say "still"?)
Our Little Logan has found his Big Voice. That’s not to say that he JUST started making noises; he’s been doing that for quite some time now. These aren’t little baby “coo’s, ooh’s, and ahh’s”. No, he now carries on full conversations with himself, his toys, the television, the cat, the bouncy seat, anyone or anything that will listen… And trust me you can’t help … Continue reading Jibber Jabber Jibber Jabber
Dear Logan, I know that I keep going on and on about how time is just flying by right before my eyes. Truly it is. I can’t believe that today you are four months old. It seems like just yesterday that I wrote your letter for last month and last week that the nurses placed you into my arms. My heart swells whenever you’re near to … Continue reading Newsletter Month Four
I still take a step back whenever someone makes this sort of surprised statement in regards to my son and his relationship with Corey and I. It shouldn’t shock me. It’s probably one of the most common statements made to us once someone realizes that Logan is adopted. (And yes, although his color has “come in”, many people still do not think he is adopted upon meeting us.) My new … Continue reading "He Really Does Love His Mama and Daddy!"
