A Weekend of Firsts

First off I need to write about my little brother. He got home from his mission a week and a half ago and it is so good to have him back. We missed him so much. At the airport was his first time meeting Logan and Logan loves him so much already. We are so glad grateful for the blessings we received on his mission and are so glad to have him back home with us!

Logan had such a busy weekend. My parents planned on taking Logan and Layne camping this weekend but things came up and they ended up not being able to go. They decided to take them to the Bees game instead. My brothers friend Ashley is a Honey Bee for the bees so she got them tickets. Logan's first baseball game. They said he had so much fun. Both boys liked to run up and down the stairs, and Logan tried to escape a few times. They both got to pick a treat at the game. Layne picked cotton candy and Logan picked popcorn. They were both such good sharers. I am so grateful to my parents for taking Logan. They not only took him to the baseball game but they let him sleepover too, so that David and I could have the night to ourselves and sleep in. It was wonderful! Thank you very much mom and dad!

The boys in the car on the way to the game. Logan is so silly around Layne!

My dad and the boys at the game. It rained and this pretty rainbow came. Layne said "Wow Brama (what he calls my mom)a real rainbow. I have never seen a real rainbow before." Cute boy.

The Bees Bee.

Today Logan went to nursery for the first time! Woohoo! We could hardly wait for this day to come. He is a very curious and rambunctious little boy and I don't think we have listened to a Sunday School lesson in two months. He did so awesome. He went right in and didn't even cry. When we went to pick him up his nursery leader said, "He was so good! Does he go to day care?" I was happy to say that he is just a very good little boy. Not that good kids can't cry, but I was sure proud of Logan for not crying. Hopefully it stays that way!

Logan in his church clothes just before leaving for church. I had to document his first time going to nursery.

His last first of the weekend was his first haircut! I know his first haircut at 18 months. Most kids have probably had quite a few by now. His hair is very thin though and there is not much of it. He had a lot in the back that was curly half the time and scraggly half the time. So we decided 18 months was a good time for him to get his first haircut. He did not enjoy it. He kept squirming and we had to keep giving him candy. Thank you so much mom for cutting it. He looks so cute! He is turning into a little boy and not my baby anymore. It makes me kind of sad. I even got a little teary eyed as my wonderful mother cut his hair. I can't wait for more firsts with our little guy!!

The before picture. It is definitely not a good before picture. David had already gotten his hair wet and Logan was not cooperating.

The after picture. I know it doesn't look much different than the before but it is!!

Father's Day!!

I couldn't let this day go by without posting about what a wonderful father David is. He is such an amazing man. David goes to work nearly everyday and works so hard so that I get to stay home with our wonderful little boy. He never complains about it. When David gets home from work we can see his shadow through the window and Logan always get so excited and starts jumping and yelling Dada. He loves when David get home. When he does get home I know he is tired but he still comes in and starts playing with Logan right away. My favorite times are watching the two of them play and laugh, and with David as a dad Logan laughs a lot. He changes diapers, gets Logan in jammies, brushes his teeth, and puts Logan in bed. I appreciate all of that so much. He never ever complains when I ask him to change a diaper. He always says I go to work all day but when I get home my job is to be a dad. I love that he feels that way. Every morning when Logan is awake before me, he gives him a bath and breakfast and watches him so that I can sleep and extra hour. Seriously he is an absolutely amazing man. I am so lucky that I get to be married to him for eternity and that he is such an amazing father to our child. I love you so much babe! Thank you for being such a wonderful man!

I also want to say how much I love my own father. He is such a great man. He is such a hard worker. My dad is also so supportive. He loved watching my brothers play sports but would also come to dance, choir, and band performances. My dad is so shy, but when you get to know him he is so funny! Like I have said before my dad and Logan have an amazing little relationship. My dad loves Logan so much and vice versa. When we are at my parents house Logan would rather be with my dad than anyone else, and my dad lets Logan do pretty much whatever he wants. He will follow Logan around for hours on end just going where Logan wants to go. I just want to thank my dad for being such a great father to me and now a great grandfather to Logan. We love you and appreciate all you do for us!

New Family Pictures

As I said in my last post, last week we went to Wheeler Farm to get Quinney family pictures taken. I think ours turned out really good considering Logan would not cooperate at all!! He just wanted to be down and playing. We didn't get any good pictures of just Logan so we will do another little shoot for his 18 month pictures. I just thought I would post a few that turned out pretty good.

Our little family.

The Quinney boys have a hard time posing for pictures. David does pretty good though. The sun was in our eyes in this picture but I still think it turned out not too bad. T this point we had been taking pictures for a couple hours.

The whole family. It took so long to get us all up in that tree but the pictures turned out really good.

My favorite boys walking to the car. My favorite pictures are always the ones with just my two guys!

Logan vs. the Duck

Yesterday we went to Wheeler Farm to get Quinney family pictures taken. My sister took them and did an awesome job! Toward the end there were some people there with brand new baby ducks and they were so nice to let the kids play with them. The kids had so much fun and my sister got some great pictures of the kids playing with the ducks. My sister in law told her daughter to hold the duck like a ball. Logan heard ball and these pictures explain what he thought he should. He really did love the ducks! The face on my sister in law throughout each picture is priceless!
