All I Want for Christmas

This year has been unlike any other Christmas I have ever had - for starters, the holidays snuck up on me faster than before, but it was like I had a whole new reason to get into the spirit! When Mo asked me what I wanted, I honestly couldn't think of anything that stuck right out - I don't believe I walk around in a blissfully happy state, but for the first time, I feel truly contented in my life. Sometimes being a first time Mom is scary or frustrating, but most of the time is just feels like this is the way it was always meant to be. So this year, I don't have a house or a car or a Caribbean vacation on the horizon, but it's truly the happiest I have ever been. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!

First Christmas

Because we are off to California on Christmas Eve, we celebrated Christmas in Oregon last night! I'm not sure Logan knew exactly what was going on, but it was fun to watch him take in all the chaos! He tried to open his gifts all by himself, but needed a little help! He even debuted his very own Santa hat, love it!

5 Months

Logan turned 5 months old yesterday and I can say that this month, he is starting to feel more like a boy and less like a baby. First of all, he finally has some hair on his head, it may not look like much, but its coming in dark like his daddy. He loves talking, laughing and wiggling! There are 2 bottom teeth showing themselves, but they have yet to break through - but that didn't stop Logan from trying solids for the first time! He can control his head so well and loves sitting in his high-chair at the dinner table. He will grab anything you put in front of him and his latest obsession is anything that makes a crinkle noise! He loves going out into the world and checking things out - he is curious and doesn't seem to be timid about much! He is the coolest kid I know!

When special people meet

This past weekend, Logan got the chance to meet Santa, he was very cool, calm and collected, that's my boy! I don't know what he asked Santa for this year, but when I went to pick him up, Santa told me my boy has quite a grip! Yes, I know Santa, you're lucky he didn't get a hold of your beard!

Learning To Eat

Last week, we got the clear from the pediatrician to start Logan on solids! It never fails to be an entertaining life moment, he didn't quite know what to do with the spoon or the food, but it didn't take too long before we got a few swallows.

I'm having a few problems with Blogger trying to upload the video we took, but as soon as I get it figured out we will post Logan eating in live action.

Christmas Tree Recap

This weekend we headed out to see the Willamette University Star Trees get lit up with lights, complete with Hot Cocoa! Then Sunday we went to cut down our own tree at a local farm. Logan spent lots of time outside and in the Bjorn, he did great!

Our blue spruce with lights but not yet finished. A completed tree will be posted soon.... p.s. Logan loves Christmas music, I knew he was my son. He sings along and gets in a great mood whenever I play it. Go figure.

On this day last year, we were out doing this...

And later that night, we found out about this...

Oh, what a difference a year makes! It has become somewhat of a tradition to cut down our Christmas tree, so today, we are going to remember this little anniversary by going to find our tree with Logan in tow, but I plan on drinking at the end of the night, so no little (or really big rather) surprises for me! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend....

A Thankful Weekend

We had a great Thanksgiving weekend filled with great food and some R & R at the beach house. We started off our holiday with a new addition to the table, a high chair for Logan, so he could officially be a part of the family during meal time. He loved it, I'm sure it helped that a new toy came with it.

Mo feeding Logan some pear. Then it was time to head to the beach. We went exploring and visited Pacific City - and haystack rock!

All in all, it was a great weekend, but as usual, Monday comes too soon! At least the holiday season has officially begun, it is my favorite time of year!

A White Thanksgiving

This morning we woke up to this...

Could it be? A white Thanksgiving... I cannot recall ever having snowfall in November, but I think it's pretty cool. If I can't enjoy the sunshine in Cali, I might as well enjoy the early snow here! So, we are staying inside today, but I do plan on taking Logan out to touch his first bit of snow later today. I'm hoping it stays cold and we can enjoy the Holidays all cozy inside!

Logan staying warm!
