7 months old!

On December 14th Logan turned 7 months old! I just cannot believe it. He is changing so much these days. I just love it. He is such a sweet and happy guy. He is learning so many new things. It is so much fun to watch him grow and learn.

Here's what Logan is up to at 7 months:

  • He now weighs 20lbs
  • Still wears size 3 diapers but soon to be in size 4
  • Wears 9 month and some 12 month clothes
  • He LOVES his new bath seat
  • He loves to eat too!! He eats 4 bottles a day along with rice cereal and a fruit for breakfast and rice cereal and a veggie for dinner.
  • He has mastered sitting up on his own. He still hasn't figured out to catch himself if he starts to fall though.
  • Had his 1st Christmas with Bryan's Mom on the 11th. He was spoiled and received lots of great new toys. He loves them all!
  • He has started waking up a lot at night. He just seems to want to play!
  • Is learning to drink from a sippy cup. Still hasn't figured out that he has to tip it to get anything to come out.
  • He has started mumbling more this month. Still working on him to say "Momma or Dadda"
  • Still loves his jumparoo. Although he is starting to get too big for it.
We leave to go visit my Mom tomorrow. It will be Logan's first plane ride. I hope he will be good on the plane and not have problems with his ears or anything. We will be gone 10 days. It will be a nice vacation. We can't wait to experience Logan's first Christmas. He is going to be so spoiled again from my family. They just can't wait to meet him finally in person.

6 months

On November 14th, Logan turned 6 months old. I just cannot believe it!! He is growing up SO fast. I swear every day he changes. I just LOVE this stage he is in. He is doing all sorts of firsts. He had his 6 month well doctor visit on Wednesday (12/1). The doctor says he is developing great. It is good to know that he is right on track.

Here is what Logan is up to at 6 months:

  • wears size 3 diapers (size 4 night time diaper)
  • wears 6-9 month and 9 month clothes. He actually fits in some 12 month stuff too.
  • eats 4 bottles a day (4-8oz per bottle). He sometimes eats a bottle and then will refuse his next one.
  • eats 1oz of rice cereal with half a jar of fruit for breakfast and eats 2oz of rice cereal with half a jar of fruit and a jar of veggies for dinner. He LOVES eating solids. We have yet to find a food he will not eat yet. Some veggies he doesn't like at first but will eat them the second time we try to feed them to him. We have found he likes the veggies warmed up a little :)
  • Can now sit up on his own for long periods of time before falling over
  • Rolls all over the place. Just tonight he was on his play mat playing and we went to make him a bottle and came back and he had rolled into his closet.....2 feet away!!
  • Still LOVES his Jumparoo!! He plays in that thing all the time. He can now turn himself around to play with all the toys on it. He even fell asleep in it the other day :) Must have tired himself out with all the jumping
  • Sleeping good in his crib. He is starting to sleep through the night more these days. He still has some nights where he wakes up but all we have to do is give him a pacifier and he falls right back to sleep.
  • We have started using the next size car seat in my car (Britax Boulevard). Logan seems to like it so far.
  • He now has TEETH!! His 2 front bottom teeth came in right before Thanksgiving. He did pretty well with the whole teething thing. He was a little cranky, but that was is it. Did have to give him Tylenol often to help with the pain at night. LOVE to see him smile with little teeth. (I tried to get a picture but no luck. He won't even let me really feel with my finger)
  • He LOVES to crinkle and rip up paper. He laughs and just thinks that is the funnest thing in the world!
  • As of his doctors appointment on 12/1: weighs 18lbs 10oz (75%), 27 inches long (75%), and his head is 45.8cm (95%)....BIG head boy!!
"Here hold my keys Mom"
  • Starting to learn to drink water from a sippy cup. He grabs the handles and puts it to his mouth but has not figured out that he has to tip it to get the water to come mom has to help him tip it! He is learning :)
  • He thinks it is fun to throw EVERYTHING on the floor.
He loves my phone....probably not a good thing
  • He still smiles ALL the time. Especially when mom or dad get home from work. He squeals when one of us comes in the door.
  • He laughs all the time now too. Bryan is really good at getting him to belly laugh. His little laugh is the best sound EVER!!

He is at a very fun age right now. It is so fun to see him learn and experience new things. This is the best month so far. I am sure I will be saying that as these next months pass too. I just can't wait to see him grow. He is such a happy little guy these days. I just LOVE waking up to his smiling face everyday.

Christmas Cards

I have never sent out Christmas cards in the past. I am not really sure why. However, now that we have Logan, I would love to send some out. I now have someone cute to put on the front :) My mother-in-law even did a little photo shoot of Logan just for Christmas cards. I plan on using Shutterfly for our Christmas cards this year. I have been browsing their website for a couple months. They have lots of great cards. I have a few friends that have ordered prints from them and they have turned out GREAT!! So, I thought why not give them a try myself. Plus, they are offering 50 free cards to anyone that blogs about them. You can go here and see the details. Who can turn down such a great offer especially since their cards are so cute!! There are lots to choose from. I spent a hour the other night just looking at them all.

Halloween 2010

I know this is EXTREMELY late, but I was just able to upload the pics from Halloween onto my computer. Even though Logan was only 5 months this Halloween, we still bought him a costume and took him downtown trick or treating. Well, he actually just rode around in his stroller watching cousin Ty walking down the sidewalk in his bear costume. Logan dressed up as a CUTE little monkey. He was adorable. I can't wait until next year when he will be able to walk and actually go to the door to get candy :)

5 months old

I know this is really late but on October 14th, Logan turned 5 months old!! He is growing and changing every single day. This past month he changed and learned so much. He is becoming such a BIG boy!!

Here is what Logan is up to at 5 1/2 months:

  • wears size 3 diapers
  • wears 6-9 month clothes, and some 9 month jammies
  • had his first cold followed by his first ear infection (Oct. 4) Sick babies are NO fun :(
  • absolutely loves his jumperoo! He can actually jump in it now and just squeals with delight when you put him in it
First time meet great grandma and grandpa Puckett

  • can reach for toys and grab them really well now
  • loves to sit or stand on our laps
  • smiles all day long
  • likes to do this HIGH pitched scream....surprised his throat doesn't hurt at the end of the day
  • jibbers and jabbers all day too, especially when he first gets up or when you are putting him in his car seat
  • really likes the cat. He likes to scream and talk to her too :)
  • loves oatmeal and bananas!! Have not tried any other fruits yet but think we will try apples next
  • Still loves taking a bath. It is his and daddy's fun time together. All they both do is laugh the whole time....very cute!
  • laughs at everything these days. You can just make a funny face and he will laugh. His laugh is the cutest sound ever!
  • now sleeps in his crib and not in his swing (Oct. 22)
  • rolled over from his back to his belly for the first time (Oct. 23)
  • no longer sleeps through the night ever since he was sick. He is getting better, but still wakes up a few times during the night. It was like having a newborn all over again for a few weeks.....very rough on mommy and baby!

  • eats less formula now that he eats oatmeal and bananas at lunch or dinner sometimes
  • weighs 16lbs 10oz as of Oct. 14th....growing so fast!
  • can now sit for small amount of time on his own. Does really good if you put a boppy pillow around him to hold him up :)
  • He doesn't really like his bouncy seat anymore. He is always arching his back and trying to wiggle out of it. I think he just wants to be able to move on his own so bad!

I know there is lots more that I am forgetting, but this is all I can think of right now.
I just cannot wait to see what the next month has to bring. He is just the sweetest boy ever!! I am so excited to wake up to him everyday. We just cannot imagine life without him! He means the world to us!

Shots are no fun!

On Friday Logan had his 4 month check up at the doctors. Everything went well and he is a healthy baby boy. Bryan was even able to come with us this time which was nice. 4 months equals more vaccinations. Logan does great with the oral one. Sucks it down like nothing. The 2 shots were not as easy. The poor guy is just laying on the table all happy and babbling when WHAM he is stuck in one leg. Instant tears and no noise cries and then WHAM stuck again. He just looks at me like "Mom what did you let them do to me?" Poor guy! Good thing is that he only cries for a minute and is okay once I pick him up. Glad we don't have to do that again for another 2 months :)

Here are his 4 month stats:

Weighs 15lbs 10 ounces (90th percentile)
Height is 26 inches (75th percentile)
Head is 43.5 cm (75th percentile)

He grew 3 inches and gained 4 pounds since his last appointment. He is growing nicely the doctors say. Makes mom very happy!

We also got the go ahead to start Logan on rice cereal. We tried it the other night and today. He is not a fan yet. He just spits it back out after pushing it around in his mouth. I guess we will just keep trying until he gets the hang of it. So cute to see him eating off of a spoon :)

4 months old

Logan is now 4 months old!! I just cannot believe how fast he is growing up. This past month he has changed so much. He no longer acts like a wee newborn, but more like a big boy.

  • He has started reaching for toys you hold in front of him
  • Loves to chew on his thumb and index finger (until he gags himself)
  • Still sleeps through the night. Goes to bed around 9pm and wakes up around 8am
  • He tried out his Jumperoo for the first time. He is just learning how to make himself move. Most of the time we help him jump a little :)

  • He laughs all the time sound EVER!!!
  • His favorite toys these days are a little green ball and of course Sophie the giraffe
  • He tried rice cereal the other day....not a fan!! Guess we will just keep trying :)
  • He still LOVES bath time. He new thing is chewing on the wash cloth...very cute!

He has his 4 month well visit next Friday so we will see how much he has grown then. 4 months also means more shots!! I hope this time around will be better than last time :)

Logan.....Mom and Dad love you so much. We did not know what we were missing until we met you!!

3 months.....

Guess who is 3 months old???

Yep on August 14th, Logan turned 3 months old and I just cannot believe it. This past month has gone by the fastest yet. There have been lots of changes in him too. We are starting to really see his little personality these days. He loves interacting with B and I and be in the same room with us experiencing whatever we are doing. I just love him at this age. He isn't my wee newborn anymore....he is an infant now :) I cannot wait to see all the changes this coming month bring.

Napping with Momma

Here is what Logan is up to at 3 months:

* He is still in size 1 diapers....will be in size 2 once we finish this last box of size 1's
*He can still fit in 0-3 months clothes and some 3-6 months things as well (it really depends on the brand)
*He now weighs 12lbs 13 oz (50th percentile) as of last week at the docs

*He is still sleeping through the night. He usually falls asleep around 9-9:30pm and sleeps until 8-8:30 am (mom is still happy about this!!)
*He is now exclusively formula more breast milk :(
* He eats 25-30 oz a day

* He smiles ALL the time now....very cute especially when he sticks his tongue out while smiling too

*He still LOVES his bouncy seat....he would bounce in that thing all day if I let him :)
*He is liking tummy time more and more these days. I figured out if I lay him on the the floor propped up on his boppy pillow he does much better. He can now hold his head up for longer periods and has pretty good control

*When he wakes up in the morning he is such a HAPPY guy. He smiles and part of my day, waking up to his smiling face :)
* He is starting to really drool these days....we call him Bubbles because he spits and makes so many bubbles of drool

* He is constantly sucking on his fist (only his right one)
* He loves to lay on his play mat....he will lay there for a good 30 minutes as long as Dad lays with him and plays:)

Logan had many firsts again this month:

*He laughed for the 1st time at 12 weeks (best sound ever)
*He stuck his feet in the pool for the 1st time the other day....didn't like it at first but soon got used to it and loved kicking his little feet in the water

* He also rolled over again tummy to back
*He found his feet the other day for the first time. He loves to stare at them....wondering "What are these things?"

Staring at his feet :)

* He learned how to make the "blowing raspberries"noise {the noise you make when blowing on his belly or vroom vroom noise if you are Ty bear and Porter :)} I often wake up to him making this noise....very cute!

Tongue is always out

Mom and Dad love you Logan Matthew!!
