birthday party

Logan is 3!!

Logan at Day Two:

I can’t believe that little squishy face is now a Three Year Old Boy!!!

And First Birthday and Second Birthday:

He didn’t like cake or frosting at his first birthday. The second birthday was a bigger success! 😀

Now Logan is 3 years old. He’s almost completely potty trained (except at night). He’s going to start swim lessons soon. He loves soccer, dinosaurs, cars, and his stuffed animals. His favorite movies are Monsters Inc, Cars, Ice Age, and Shrek (he has since moved on from his obsession with The Lion King, Finding Dory and Finding Nemo).

He talks up a storm. He has opinions. He likes to have conversations, which is funny!

He’s determined, opinionated, stubborn like his parents and sometimes defiant (three year olds!). He wants to do everything himself.

He’s recently started showing that he has an imagination. He pretends to be a puppy (which is adorable). He likes to pretend to talk on the phone. He’ll pretend to call Grandma on the phone and tell her about his day. It’s absolutely adorable and hilarious. He has a cute little sense of humor!

He’s still kind of a picky eater. We’re working on it. His favorite food is still mac n’ cheese, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, carrots and crackers.

For his third birthday we had a small party with family, extended family and a few friends. We had pizza and our friend Star made her famous dark chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting! YUM!

It was a super fun day and even better because Logan understood all of it and had a great time! I can’t believe my little bitty baby is a big boy!!!!! <3

Birthday Boy, 2!

We had Logan’s 2nd birthday party this weekend! The little guy isn’t quite 2 but my mom was going to be out of town for his actual birthday so we did it early this year.

This year the theme was cars. He’s obsessed!

My little Superman. 🙂

I pre-ordered pizza from Domino’s the day before to have it delivered at a certain time. I was a little nervous because I’ve never done that before but it turned out great. The pizza arrived piping hot right on time. I am really impressed and will definitely do that again for parties.

We had an assortment of beers, hard cider, hard root beer plus lots of different sodas.

This year was so much fun! The party was a huge success and Logan knew what was going on and he was having a great time. It was so fun to watch him understand the party was for me and to see him smile.

My friend Star made her amazing birthday cake. Dark chocolate with homemade cream cheese frosting. She decorated it especially for the birthday boy.

Last year he cried during cake time. LOL This year, he LOVED it. He didn’t quite understand that blowing-out-the-candles part, but that’s ok.

Cake is now his favorite thing. 😀

I think everyone knew that cars were his favorite currently. He opened presents and got lots of cars and a new playmate for his cars. He got a bunch of cool books and clothes and new shoes! He was super excited.

The golf set is from my dad. My mom told me that he picked it out himself for Logan.

Finally, we showed Logan the gift from us. A balance bike and helmet! He’s still might be a little bit young for it, but we are going to give it a try.

It was a great party. Fun and exciting and so great for Logan. It was a nice weekend with my mom visiting. We got time to visit and I got some time for myself. It was a good balance of everything.
