Big Boy Bed

After Logan kept climbing out of his crib and into our bed Friday night and kept us up til 4:00 am we decided we needed to get a new bed for him FAST! So Saturday when David got home from work we headed to Walmart and got his new toddler bed. David set it up that night and Logan loves it! He is actually excited to go to bed to sleep in his big boy bed. We haven't had any problems with him not taking naps or anything. He did wake up at 5:00 one morning but he just came and crawled in our bed and fell back asleep. I am loving this bed! Plus we don't have to worry about him falling and getting hurt when he is so sleepy cause he is so close to the ground. Our next project is to stain all of the other furniture in his room to match.

Right after his daddy finished putting his bed together!

Loving his bed! Today for playdate he was excited to show Annie, Layne and Leslie!

Look Who Learned A New Trick

Logan is a very active little boy, so once 18 months hit we were surprised he hadn't tried to climb out of his crib yet. He liked to climb in, but never tried to climb out that we know of. At 2 I thought wow maybe we are just going to dodge a bullet and he won't ever try to climb out. Once he is just a little older we will get him a toddler bed and not have to worry about him falling out and getting hurt. Well on Tuesday David had the day off work. He put Logan in bed and he cried because he wanted to play with his daddy. After about 5 minutes we didn't hear crying anymore but then heard a door upstairs opening. We both looked at each other and thought it was weird and went up and checked. Sure enough Logan was standing there looking at us. We put him back in his bed and told him to climb out and he did it with ease like he had been doing it for months! We could not stop laughing. Naps for the past few days have been rough. He climbs out and in and out and in and opens the door. Hopefully the novelty of this will wear off soon for him. In the meantime we will start looking even more for a toddler bed.

New Valentines Traditions

We had a really great Valentines Day weekend. It started out with David's birthday on Friday. We had a yummy lunch at Tucanos and then my wonderful family watched Logan while David and I went home and relaxed and took a nap. It was nice to just relax. On Saturday we had a heart shaped pizza from Papa Murpheys for lunch. I want to start this every year. I think as Logan gets older he will really enjoy this every year. Then we went to the BYU basketball game with my dad and grandpa and it was a great game. They are doing awesome this year. Later we did our normal tradition of Cafe Rio for Valentines day. We have done that every year for the past 6 years. When we woke up Sunday morning Logan had been up a lot of the night not feeling well so we decided not to take him to church which gave me plenty of time to make pink pancakes for breakfast. I want to start doing this every year for Valentines Day. Next year I will buy a heart shaped cookie cutter to make pink heart pancakes. I also made David a big heart shaped cookie. My mom used to make these for us every year when we were younger and when David and I were dating I used to make them for him. I don't think I had made him one in a few years though. If you want to the recipe for it you can go to my mom's blog When David got home he surprised my with flowers that he had bought last night and left in the car. I had no idea he had bought them. We decided that for Valentines Day and birthdays we were going to count our new Washing Machine and Dryer so I was pleasantly surprised. Then we gave Logan his new Backyardigans DVD we got him. We had a great weekend and can't wait to continue our new traditions next year.

AARGH Matey!!

Today for playdate we decided to go down to Orem to Pirate Island. It is a restaurant that is all decked out in Pirate stuff. It reminds me of the Pirates of the Carribean ride at Disneyland. Not as good, but as good as we are going to get in Utah. The kids had lots of fun, although Logan was terrified when it would thunder and lightning inside the restaurant. And at any little noise that was out of the ordinary. I am not sure why he was such a scaredy cat. He is not usually like that. We can't wait to go again though. If you go on a Wednesday at 11:00 they have a pirate who reads a story to the kids and they get little goody bags. It is also very reasonable priced. We will for sure be going again!

The kids with their pirate hats on.

At the entrance they have a really cool fountain with a skeleton and gold. And of course I only got the back of Logan's head because he needed to keep an eye on the skeleton.

What a Goof!

Logan makes the goofiest faces. This is his latest. He looks like he is mad, but he's not! I have no idea where this kid gets stuff from!

Other funny things he has done lately:

While driving I honked my horn at someone and immediately Logan said "Move Idiot". Oops I guess we really need to start watching what we say.

Logan goes up to people and says in a deep voice, "HO HO HO Merry Christmas Day! Here is candy!" and then opens your hand for you and gives you a pretend piece of candy.

Tells us everyday that it is his birthday. He just started doing this a week ago. Not really sure why.

My friend Bethany just had her first baby yesterday. While she was pregnant we would ask Logan where baby Sydney was and he would lift up Bethany's shirt and yell, "Sydney come out!"

He is at such a fun stage and it is just getting better the more he talks!
