My Ridiculously Good-Looking Child!
































Here are some random photos of Logan and a few stories to explain them...
First of all, the first picture you see Logan is in, what I would call, an infant straight-jacket! He still doesn't favor his crib much, and we figured one reason was because he can't keep his arms from flailing all the place when he sleeps, so we hooked ourselves up with one of these contraptions and now whether he wants to or not he can't move his arms. As a result he took his first nap in his crib- nearly 3 hours long! Whoo hoo! I'm going to have to video tape him though because he hates the thing and makes the funniest grunting noises ever as he tries to escape his "prison"!
The other pictures are just him workin' it and looking entirely too adorable. (Side note: He is yawning with Josh, not screaming! He loves his daddy.)
And the last picture I had to post because anyone who knows me well knows that I loved sucking my thumb...and when I say loved I mean LOVED! I actually couldn't part with it until I was about 12 years old and I now have a thumb that is shaped like a pacifier because of it. I can't wait until we are resurrected and that thing is made perfect again. =) (FYI: That was the first time Logan sucked his thumb and the last!)

I can't believe how well he fills out all his clothes! It is so cute! And I hate to tell you dear, but you have no control whether or not he sucks his thumb. :) We pushed the binki on both our kids. Carter took it for about 5 months and then would have nothing to do with it and is now a thumb sucker. Andi would never take the binki when she was a baby, but found one when she was about 13 months old and now loves it... go figure. We just like to think we're in control, but we're really not. :)

I LOVE those velcro blankets! Kelson still likes to be swaddeled for naps. Maybe I shouldn't admit that :)
I'm seriously dying not seeing this boy. I'm so glad he's such a good baby! And again, I can't say it enough, you look awesome! Please don't tell me those are regualar jeans you're wearing?!?

Jena, he's looking older already! What a cutie :) And Xander wore the straight jacket until he was almost 6 months old, lol. I want to come see your little man!

He's very cute! And Dani's right theres no control, but even if he sucks his thumb now it dosn't mean he'll continue sucking it forever. I have a friend who's little boy sucked his thumb so much he got ezcema on it and his face where all the slobber would sit. Then one day when he was like 1 1/2 he just stopped.

I sometimes feel silly leaving all these comments on your blog, since I am not related and haven't seen you in YEARS, but that son of yours is just so darn cute! I just can't help myself!!! Oh, and I do agree with everyone that you are looking super FOXY!

Hi Josh and Jena!
Congrats on your handsome son. Daniel and I are expecting Elle Lynne Lincoln Jan. 22nd. We are planning on moving to Portland in May. It will be fun to meet Logan and compare stories!
Take care,
