It was cousin Hannah's Baptism on Sunday. We missed the church ceremony as Logan was napping -normally we would have woken him up but he's just getting over a cold so we though we would give him a break.
Logan loved sitting at the table with Mommy and Daddy like a big boy. He had us feed him some of our Dim Sum with chop sticks.
Logan loves the bling-bling!

We went over for dinner at Lolo's and Lola's and got to hang out with some of Logan's crazy cousins. Boy, does he ever love his Ate Jessie! He gave her a HUGE wet kiss when it was time to leave.

He was feeling so bad that he didn't want to play with his toys! He just wanted to lie down in Mommy's lap, complain and watch his Baby Einstein video. Sometimes taking out the camera cheers Logan up. He likes when I take a video and replay it back for him....well, he normally does. Not this day!
After hearing this crying on the phone, Daddy came home at lunch and we took him to the doctor together. She said it's likely the onset of a bad cold and to expect the temperature to last up to a week. She checked to see if it could be teething and Logan bit her. LOL Logan started to get a runny nose in the evening but seemed better. Normally he sleeps through the night but he woke up at 12:30am, 3:30am and 6am. He just wanted his soother and his blanket to be 're-tucked' and then went right back to sleep.
This morning we woke up happy and no fever at all! So after his morning nap I took him to his first 'real' day at daycare. I let his teacher know about yesterday and asked her to call me if he got warm or seemed unsettled. Daddy keeps calling the house to see how I'm doing and my heart stops each time the phone rings!

*We've left a bib and a sippy cup at daycare that are just like the ones used at home...again, just trying to make things familiar.

I get up and shower and blow dry my hair.
After breakfast I put him in his jumper. I have a cup of coffee and watch BT and Logan makes a 'stinky'. Second diaper change of the day!
7:30am: Some Daddy Time
Daddy's downstairs with us. Normally he'll have a bit more time with us but today there is a winter storm and he has to shovel before getting the car out.
We wait downstairs until Daddy is ready to go so that we can give our good bye kisses. Logan really likes standing in his playpen and can now even pull himself up.
8am: Play time!
Dad is now gone and it's upstairs to 'Play Land'. We practice clapping, walking, standing and watch a baby Einstein Video.
If we were going out today now would be the perfect time to leave -he'll either fall asleep in the car or skip his morning nap. Today we're having a storm with freezing rain so we're staying in.
9am: Books and Nap time
Starting to whine...time to get ready for a nap. We don't have a set time for morning nap but he normally lets us know he is ready between 9 and 10am. I give Logan his soother and blanket and we read some board books.Normally after 15 minutes of reading I put him in his crib, turn his mobile on, turn off the lights and walk out. Most of the time he's asleep by the end of the music but sometimes he needs one more winding up of his mobile. It doesn't happen often but today he fell asleep during story time at 9:10.
10:30: Up and Ready to Play.
Logan has a good hour and a half nap. We watch the snow and of course, practice standing up. It seems like that is his favorite thing to do now.
Surprise! Third diaper change of the day! To keep Logan from rolling over and holding still we give him something to hold onto. The current things are his seal bath toy from Grandma and Grandpa and a Baby Einstein flash card with the puppets on it...before this the only thing that would keep him still was holding the Christmas card from Darryl and Nadine that played music. 11:05am: Lunch time!
Milk, some watered down juice, peas, carrots, cheese, Cheerios, three whole wheat gold fish, Homo milk, ground chicken and some banana...
And another diaper change after lunch -this is one more than usual.
12pm Fun in the Snow!
It has stopped snowing and it's pretty warm out; only -2 degrees Celsius! Yippee! I feel like Rocky training in Russia running up and down the street in the snow pulling Logan but he loves it. He then watches me shovel the driveway before we go back inside.
12:45 Back Inside and More Playtime!We play upstairs and watch the Baby Newton video which is all about shapes. I use the flash cards as we watch the video and try to make it really interactive.
1:20 Nap Time
The routine for nap time in the afternoon is the same as the morning. He lets us know between 1 and 1:45 when he's ready and then we read books and put him in his crib. Today might be the last time I get to snuggle with him and take him into our bed for a nap together. What a treat -for me! I take about a 45 minute nap with him and then just watch him sleep, think about my 'to do list', daydream and feel so lucky to have this moment with him. He wakes up just before 3:30 and we sing songs and play little games in bed.
4pm: Time to Eat Again!
Similar to lunch but instead of banana and cheese he gets yogurt and apple sauce and a half of piece of toast. And, yes, another diaper change.
Daddy normally come home for around 5:30 but today he won't be home until 630. Logan watches me make dinner and then we dance up a storm until Dad gets home
6:30pm: Family Time
An hour late today but we always try to sit down together each night as a family for dinner. Logan has already eaten but we give him a snack of what ever we are having. He really likes the steamed broccoli.
Here is Logan playing the Filipino game 'Close, Open'.
7pm: Fun with Daddy
Logan and Allan watch some basketball and be silly together.
Logan takes a bath and then it's time for bed.
Logan drinks just under two sippy cups of homo milk a day which is around 450 ml. He was taking so little of his bottle and wouldn't drink the formula in a sippy cup so we just switched to homo milk about a month ago. Now at night is the only time he takes a bottle had has formula. Daddy is normally the one that gives Logan his bottle and puts him in his crib.
Logan is sleeping by 8pm and after Allan shovels the driveway yet again we watch a movie together and have banana splits. Yum!

Time to practice walking by holding on to my play set from Lauren!
And here is Logan a video of Logan demonstrating how he loves to dive in and out of his 'nest' -he does this over and over again.
