So guess whose birthday it is today?!!?!
Logan turned fourteen years old as of 7:55 am this morning!
He was born, at home, after many painful hours of labor. He was “supposed” to be “easy” as Jared took just 2 pushes and was came out to greet the world. Easy-peesy (as far as labors go!)
But Logan decided to greet the world coming out face first. He wanted to see where he was going. And I’m sure he was wondering what the world he would now eat, in this brand new world, as he was leaving his comfortable little womb which has a direct feeding line attached to him.
This boy does like to eat.
And he loves pineapple. So for his birthday cake he asked me to make a pineapple upside down cake.
I had never made one before.
And guess what?!?!
He didn’t like it!!! lol
It called for almond extract so I think he didn’t like that flavor. But Steve loved it and I had made a back up chocolate cake dessert just in case the pineapple cake flopped!
We had a fun and special day just lovin’ on Logan and celebrating his day.
(We celebrated last evening as it was easier being a Sunday night.)
His G & G couldn’t come over since they are off tripping through the US of A. They checked off an item on their bucket list. They have now been to ALL 50 states!!! We are ready for them to come home though!
But Grandma had his present waiting for him to open. And he loved his new computer gaming mouse!
It is pretty sweet having big brothers who now have paying jobs and get you sweet birthday gifts!
Travis had gotten a new phone a few months ago and decided to give Logan his old iphone 4S.
Logan was shocked!
Now that calls for a hug!
Too bad it is just a “glorified” ipod as we don’t get the boys a cellphone line until they are 16. But he is having fun with it and can get some of the apps and games he has been wanting.
Uncle Persy and Aunt Joy had come over to take some pictures with the boys so they stayed for the party then which was quite fun and we laughed a lot!
On August 22nd they celebrated their 5th year wedding anniversary. And they decided it would be fun to do “re-do” their wedding photos.
It was a fun thing to do….albeit it SOOO cold out!
My goodness how the boys have grown in 5 years!!!!!
And to think we have have added 3 more kids since the wedding!!?!?
We actually had received Lena’s referral the day before Joy and Brandon’s wedding. We were supposed to be at rehearsal but we just couldn’t as we had to decide if we were going to accept the referral of a sweet little girl named Dang Shuang Shuang. It wasn’t Li Li’s file so had some processing to do…..
Dear Steven & Lynnea,
Here is the information on Dang Shuang Shuang. She was born on February 5, 2006, and has cerebral anoxia and infant cerebral palsy. Please look over her information and let me know if you would like to consider adding her to your family.
Boy, am I glad we said YES! <3
Logan has such a tender heart. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.
He is so sweet with his sisters and helps them a lot.
He has really stepped up to the plate around here and has helped get the chores done, with Jared and Travis working and at school they just aren’t around as much to help.
And so Logan has been doing all the wood splitting, dishes and yard work, for the most part. And has done an amazing job.
It is no wonder he eats a lot.
He works a lot!
And it is so hard for me to grasp that you will be 18 in four short years.
It just seems like yesterday you were snuggled on my nap, with your nuk, wanting to me to read Sheep in a Jeep again. And again.
I love you sweetheart.
You will always be my little boy. The one whom I prayed for and the one who God told me to name Jeremiah when I was bleeding and at risk of losing you during my pregnancy. It gave me comfort and peace and I knew God has a very special plan for your life!!!
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
