Dark & Stormy

Reagan has surpassed Logan. 

I told myself to prepare for it but I was in denial that it would actually happen - but it has.  This is our first time experiencing an infant developing into a baby and then growing into a toddler exactly the way she should.  EVERY SINGLE thing that she does pronounces something Logan doesn't do or can't do.  And I find myself losing hope that Logan will eventually grow out of his delays & quirks.  The simplest things that Reagan does, her instinctual knowledge and abilities, are not present in Logan.  Logan does not have instinct. Imagine having to teach a child - literally teach & practice every single day something that a normal baby would just learn in a natural progression.  It is beyond frustrating and beyond tiring and I want to give up.

Logan is baffling to me and I feel out of control.

Reagan has popped two molars out in less than 2 weeks so maybe that explains her fits - but for some reason I think that is just an excuse.  She loves me so much that if I slip away to go to the bathroom (with the door open) she immediately starts crying wandering the house looking for me.  She has an attitude and shows it, with colors.  She clings to my legs and cries and throws herself on the floor and I do my best to ignore.  But eventually the tears start to flow because after a day of extreme effort and patience testing with Logan all I need to put me over the edge is a few uncalledfor fits from Reagan.  That isn't fair to Reagan and I know it.

Reagan is a normal baby going through phases, it's new to me and that makes me sad.

In a nutshell I feel out of control and sad.  
I know I will find, in my own time, how to accept the hand we've been dealt but in the meantime I go day to day hoping for a good day.

Daddy's on travel this week but today was a good day.
We left the door open all day, watched it thunderstorm, let all the flies fly in and then "splatted!" them with the fly swatter and belly laughed.
Hoping for a good day tomorrow, Wednesday is therapy day, Thursday my BFF comes into town & Friday Daddy comes home - we'll make it :)

Sunday Favs

Logan was up before 6am Friday, Saturday & Sunday (have no idea whats going on with that).  We've had an exhausting weekend to say the least but decided to make the most of it today. So during their morning naps we set up the backyard for a pool party and during their afternoon naps we had drinks in the sunshine :)

You best not be posing poolside little lady....

 Hammock, cutoffs and baby legs: good end to the weekend

At it again

I do believe it is our mindset that if we let the house stay the exact same for too long it might go stale so we did another quick switch-a-roo this morning.

First we (Reagan & Daddy) assembled the toddler bed that Grandma & Grandpa gave us awhile back:

Then we moved the big bed to the "playroom" so we could be a little more accommodating to our guests:

and situated the toddler bed in Logans room.  We're still in the market for a twin bed for Logan but for now this itty bitty bed will do :)

In the thick of it

We officially have two emerging walkers, the word "no" is the most frequently heard word in our house, nap times are being re-figured, growth spurts are happening, patience is being tested, we are in full force therapy - we are in the thick of raising our babies.

One of those rare mornings that Logan was up at 5:50 head butting his door and Reagan decides to sleep in till 7:30 
 Thank goodness for coffee & cartoons :)

Gifts a plenty

She was showered with gifts for her first birthday but these 4 in particular just might be her favs as of now:

The shopping cart.  She will walk around and put all sorts of things in her cart, take a few steps unload.  And repeat.

The forward facing carseat to match Logans :)  

The kitchen.   A hit with both kiddos.  We bought it off of craigslist and it came with a ton of other nifty gadgets and pretend things. 

Baby doll Jenna and her milk bottles. 

Thanks to everyone who sent cards & money and clothes and all sorts of other gifts.  Next week we go to the docs for her one year well visit to get her stats.

Grandma Jo's visit

Was short & sweet - she left yesterday after what felt like a whirlwind of a trip.  But it sounds like she might come back once more this summer :o

Thanks for coming to see us Grandma Jo - see you soon!!!
