Logan's B-day Card

Logan's birthday card been my project for the last few weeks, I have about 10 hours into it. The only channel we let Logan watch is Sprout, they have all shows for little ones. Sesame Street and Teletubbies are his favorite. I have really been limiting how much T.V. he watches, I do not want a little junkie, so we play all day long. Well on this channel they have the B-day show and we are hoping that Logan's card will be one chosen to be aired, so look for it on his B-day March 13th. I have no artistic ability for things like this, my thing is working in my flower beds and my plants, I am great with that. I think it turned out pretty well, I just wish we would get it back to keep for him but at least he has pictures.

A Brief Update

It's been 4 months today that we took Logan home w/us forever. Gosh, it was a long road to get him here but he was definitely worth the wait :)

Logan got is first cold since being home last week, it's been about 5 days and he is feeling a lot better, it was all in his nose, poor baby. He really is not a baby at all any more, all TODDLER. After Christmas we cocooned for a few weeks, he was so over-stimulated and dis-connected that is was important to bunker down for a few. I'll tell you those 2 weeks were the best, he really started to trust and feel comfortable. It really is amazing the changes Jeff and I have witnessed over the last 4 months. Our social worker (friend) Lisa said to me the other day about how rewarding it must feel with all of his changes and she is sooooooooooo right. The changes are just unbelievable. He is so funny and has such a great personality. He wants to do everything by himself now, he doesn't need any help and for those of you with toddlers you know exactly what I am talking about, LOL!

Here are a few recent pics for you Aunt Al.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of you! I hope your 2006 was as blessed as ours. I cannot begin to tell you how fortunate I feel to finally have the baby I have longed for for so many years. I have always known that things happen for a reason and I know that we had to wait until Logan was ready for us even though we were ready for him a long time ago, I cannot imagine any other baby being ours. I love him more than I could ever say or express.

This past year came with some heartache as well as joy. I lost my dog Baylee, on the 4th of July, the day we left to go and meet Logan and I still miss her everyday.

To all of you that have supported Jeff and I in our decision on attachment parenting, I can not thank you enough. I know it has not been easy but your love and encouragement that we did/are doing the right thing means more to us than you will ever know. We know that this was right for him, he has blossoming into this smart beautiful boy and we see him trusting us more every day. He has grown so much, I measured/weighed him yesterday and he is now 28 pounds and is 32 inches tall, WOW, he must have some serious growing pains going on. He has 2 more teeth coming in, that makes 6 total. For the first time about a week ago Logan actually laid his head on my shoulder and just hung there for about 10 minutes, it was such a loving moment, he has finally started feeling comfortable and I think trusting in Jeff and I, that is such a wonderful thing. I will post a few pics in the next couple of days, I must go get my little cutie up :)
