Logan is TWO!!

Two years ago we welcomed Logan James into the world nearly three months early. He weighed just 2 lbs. 12.3 oz. Despite being scared out of our minds, we were so excited to be his parents and fell in love instantaneously!
After a year of ups and downs, numerous appointments, and winter lock downs our baby turned one! He amazed us with all of his new tricks, walking, talking, and tantrums! It was a much more relaxed time in our lives because we realized that he was no longer a preemie and just a normal kid!
Then we blinked and all of a sudden Logan turned TWO!!! Wouldn't you know that all of our doctors were right, by two he is all caught up and healthy as can be! We couldn't be more proud of our big guy! He has become quite a character and is still full of all of the determination, stubbornness, and persistence that he had they day he was born!

We had a wonderful weekend celebrating Logan's birthday! Friday he brought "cuppies" to Miss Laura's house to share with all of his friends. Miss Laura reported that he had a great day (music to mama's ears!).
After a nice nap, we took Logan to dinner at the T-Rex cafe. He was a little apprehensive at first but soon he was leaping up from the table to go explore all of the fish tanks, mechanical dinosaurs, and of course, the truck!
He was surprised to see the staff singing and clapping a happy birthday song to him! He got a great, big chocolate chip cookie with a scoop of ice cream! YUM!! Before our waitress could bring him a spoon he had shoved his face into the ice cream for a taste!

After dinner we stopped by Dave and Busters to play some games. Logan liked throwing the skee balls with Daddy. Eventually we realized that our Birthday Boy was getting a bit sleepy and there were still gifts to be opened at home.

After gift opening he gathered up his new tractor, forklift, cars, and as many trucks as he could hold and went off to sleep! Kasey and I stayed up late preparing for the big truck party that was taking place on Saturday.
We had a busy morning running a lot of errands! Here is Logan surrounded by all of his balloons in the backseat!

Our truck party was ready for all of our Kansas friends and family. I took some pictures for our family and friends that weren't able to join us, we missed you!!

Welcome to the party!

This was the birthday present opening station! The pictures on the "zero, one, two" signs are the same ones from the beginning of the post. We got SO many compliments on Logan's custom-made Uncle John wooden trucks!

Logan's cake was a big hit! The truck makes noise, drives by itself, and has flashing lights, oooh!
Logan was just the cutest during his birthday song! He just grinned at everyone!

Mommy and Daddy helped Logan make a big birthday wish and blow out the candles!
Mmm, the best part, licking off the frosting!

Logan was spoiled with many new trucks and toys! Our house will never be the same! He was so excited to open his brand new bike!! It fits him just right! He even knows to put his feet on the pedals! Watch out neighborhood, here he comes!
