pizza 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

Long Weekends Are…

Long weekends are for fun. A time to recharge. It helps when the weather cooperates. Friday night I had a relaxing swim and then Michael and I chilled watching the last few episodes of “The Killing.” I thought it was a good show. It was slow moving in parts but it kept me interested. A lot of people didn’t like the finale but I liked it a lot! It was thought-provoking.

Saturday was a great day. I started it off with a butt-kicking in the gym. I would have preferred to run outside but I wanted to get in a good weight lifting session, so the treadmill it was. 4 miles and a couple dozen squats later, I was worn out:


The rest of Saturday afternoon was for chores like yard work. It wasn’t that bad though because the sun was out and it felt nice to be outside. Then we had some friends over for a pizza party.


I’m glad the pizzas turned out so great and that we were able to eat outside on the deck. It was a nice night, with a warm breeze and the occasional sound of fireworks. They brought Michael and I bottle of wine as a gift, which I’m really looking forward to trying! I forgot to ask if it was from her recent trip to France:


They also brought dessert. Vanilla Bean ice cream with my chocolate fudge and their caramel sauce: perfect for a warm night.

The weekend wasn’t all go-go-go. Sunday morning I slept in and snuggled with this guy:


He’s good at cuddles. Fat Kitty is a purring machine and that lulled me back to sleep for a bit longer. I skipped the pool on Sunday morning to go for a long bike ride with Michael.

QUESTION: How is your long weekend so far?
