May 2013: Logan Turns One!

We celebrated by going to Disneyland (of course), opening gifts, and doing the traditional cake smash. Unfortunately, Logan isn’t much of a cake smasher. Unlike many toddlers, he doesn’t really like to get dirty (I can’t even get him to pick up a banana with his bare hands); plus he doesn’t like sweets much (kid doesn’t even like ice cream—proud, but confused because it’s definitely not genetic). So he picked at his cake and took a couple of bites, but that’s all we could get out of him.

We keep a journal of our favorite things about Logan. Here are some of the things we wrote down a few days before his birthday:

He points at every light and says “doo”
He has the most adorable belly laugh
He waves at everybody, especially at the grocery store; it’s like I’m pushing him around on a parade float instead of a grocery cart.
When Bryan puts Logan on his shoulders, Logan pulls on his ears like they are reins.
We pull him into bed with us in the mornings and he rolls around and is very cuddly
He squeals with delight when Daddy comes home from work
He puts his whole fist in his mouth when he eats cheerios
He carries his toys in his mouth as he crawls around, he looks like a little puppy dog
He likes crawling so much that he won’t even attempt to walk
He claps whenever anyone cheers
He loves everything about water— swimming in it, drinking it, bathing in it, drinking it while bathing in it (Yuck. And he’s so sneaky about it, too.)….

Funny side note that has absolutely nothing to do with this post: I've had control of our blog for 4/5.5 years and I've finally caught up with Bryan. We are now even at 10 posts each!
