The Journey of a Sweet Little Boy and His Special Heart

Tuesday, May 17, 2011


Dr. Mr. Logan-
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed my afternoon with you today.  Usually you are taking your nap when your brother and sister are at school so I use that time to get things done around the house.  But today you decided you would rather hang out with me.  I was okay ignoring the laundry.  We had a great time playing.  We practiced saying "mama" and giving kisses.  I lifted you up high to touch the tree painted on Tanner's wall that intrigues you so much, and while we were on the bed we were naughty and jumped on the bed just like monkey's do (you laughed and laughed).  I let you make a mess in Tanner's room, and we drove his cars all around.  I tried to show you how to crawl by crawling everywhere myself, but you still were not interested.  You would look at me and laugh and then get mad you were on your tummy.  I of coarse would give in and pick you up.  We shared a cookie (but not until after we ate our vegetables).  We read a few books, and snuggled a whole bunch.  It was a perfect afternoon.
It is your Birthday on Saturday.  I can't believe you will be ONE.  For some reason I have been really emotional getting ready for this big day.  It has been an unbelievable year.  As part of your birthday celebration your dad and I have been putting together a video of your first year of life.  Seeing all the pictures I have re-lived so many precious, precious moments of your life.  You are a MIRACLE, and my HERO.  Thank you for choosing me as your mommy.  Let's have another afternoon date again sometime soon!
I love you little guy.


  1. Sounds like a perfect day. Logan looks great and is getting so big.

    Zoe's first birthday brought out a lot of emotions for us too. It was almost surreal, the day of her birthday party.

    Hugs to you and Logan!
