It is unbelievable to me that in just six days Logan will turn one! As you can see he is reminding us on a daily basis just how big he is! I cannot believe that it was a year ago I was innocently teaching my new class of kindergarteners, only to be surprised with preterm labor on the sixth of September! I have heard that it can be quite difficult reliving the "anniversaries" of a preemie's birth. I have been doing really well with it and I think it has to do with what a truly remarkable kiddo we have! He continues to amaze us every day! He has become so much more aware these days. He points to pictures in books when you ask him where things are. He will find people's nose and mouth but will only find eyes on a picture! When you ask him to come to you he will scoot his way there. He is becoming so interactive which makes him even more fun! He is getting onto his hands and knees and rocking, so I believe that a full-on crawl will be any day now!
We are looking forward to Grandma B.'s arrival on Wednesday. On Logan's birthday, his Grandma B., Papooli, Gramma Jan and I are going to bring cupcakes to the NICU and my OB/GYN's office to celebrate with the people that helped our little fighter. Then we are going to meet up with Daddy at the Lincoln Park Zoo! On the 12th we will be having a superhero themed birthday party for the little guy! Complete with capes, thanks to Grandma B.! It should be a very exciting week! Make sure to check back for updates and great pics!
