My Little Logi Bear

My posts lately (the few that I HAVE been posting at least) have seemed to focus on Brandon. So tonight while Daddy and Brandon were at Cub Scouts, Logan was taking a bath and I decided to snap some pictures of him. If there are two things that Logan loves, it's taking baths and having "photo shoots". He LOVES having his picture taken. So here is a couple pics of my cutie haming it up. I can't believe he's almost 4!

It finally came out!!

Today on the way home from school Brandon told me that while he was eating his apple at lunch his tooth got moved around a lot and felt like it was going to come out soon. So I saw that as a mission to get that thing out of his mouth.

First we tried to get it out with the old "string around the doorknob" trick. We went through 2 trials of that but I only had yarn, and it kept slipping of the tooth, so we threw that idea out the window. Then he wanted to try breaking it off in an apple, but the only apples we had were kinda soft, and he was scared to bite down too hard. Then he tried just using his fingers to pull it out, but that was just too tramatic for him. He just couldn't get himself to pull hard enough.

I finally called my aunt who lives a few minutes from us and asked if she had any string. Real string, not fuzzy mulitcolored yarn. So we made a quick trip over to her place to pick it up, we came home and Brandon agreed to just one more try with the doorknob. He was not happy with the idea, but I think he was just sick of me bugging him about it. So we tied him up, took a pic of his miserable little face, and slammed the door. Out popped the tooth!! He didn't even notice that it had come out until he felt the empty spot with his tongue. He was completely shocked that it didn't hurt.

After we got the bleeding to stop with some salt water, he was ready to pose for pictures. And then he started asking a million questions about the Tooth Fairy: "What time does she come", "How big is she" , "What does she use the teeth for" , "How does she get in the house" , "How does she get the tooth out from under my pillow without waking me up?" That is the question that I'm asking myself. I just KNOW he's going to wake up when I try to get that tooth out, or I'm not going to be able to find it or something. I'm so nervous!!

So here are the pics of my little toothless baby. Oh yeah, and there's already another loose one!!

Pinewood Derby

Last Saturday was the Pinewood Derby and the Blue & Gold banquet for Brandon's cub scout troop. After many, many..........many, many races, Brandon's car came in 3rd place!! For awhile he was in 1st, but during the second half of the derby, his car started to slow down a bit. He was just as happy with 3rd though.

Our Valentine's Day

Chris and I decided to make Valentine's day about the boys this year. I made special pancakes with a little "love" sprinkled on top for breakfast, then the boys got to ransack the candy bags I put together for them. Chris took them to the swimming pool at the Y for a little while, and we had a dinner out at the Rainforest Cafe.
It was a nice day. Unfortunatly though, it ended with Brandon being sick and now he's spending today on the couch looking miserable. Poor kid. Oh yeah, and the tooth is still attached to his gums!!! It's still moving, but he says it hurts when he tries to wiggle it, so he doesn't want to make any progress on it :( I'll get that thing out if it kills me!!

TOOTH WATCH...'09!!!

So Brandon FINALLY has a wiggly tooth. One of his bottom front teeth is wobbling around. We hope it comes out in the next few days. I just keep telling him to wiggle it when ever he can. My poor kid has been the only one in his class since Kindergarten that still has all his baby teeth. He used to come home and say "_____ lost a tooth yesterday and a got a sticker on the tooth chart." By the end of each year, his has been the only name that doesn't have a sticker next to it. It kills me! Everybody keeps telling me that the longer he keeps his baby teeth, the less cavities he'll have. He didn't get any teeth at all until after he was 12 months old, so I realize that this is just something that happens, but still. For the past 2 years, he'll just out of the blue start playing with his teeth and say "I THINK I can feel this one moving a little." Wishful thinking. But now it's finally happening!! I think I'm more excited than he is. So as soon as that thing pops out, you can be sure that the camera will be snapping away and I'll get right on here and post about it. I CAN'T WAIT!!

Coming up on 32 weeks

Honestly, I don't know how I'm still standing upright. I think I'm defying the laws of physics or gravity or something. I constantly feel like I'm going to topple over. This pregnancy thing has been fun and all, but I'm ready for these last couple of months to fly by. Though I really don't think that's going to happen. Oh well, it's worth all the sleepless nights and sore muscles :D
