I keep finding these two, being seriously adorable.

2 little monkeys, climbing into bed....

Wyatt is a blessing and a curse when it comes to being the older brother...
...the blessing because he loves to play with Logan...
...the curse because he wakes up Logan to do so.

Yes, my friends, Wyatt will intentionally wake up Logan so that they can play together.
That being said, the only way to get to Logan, is to climb into his crib.

I guess I should be a little less annoyed because this really only happens in the morning before I wake up...
...I basically wake up to giggles and chattering on the baby monitor.

BOYS.


 

the first thing Wyatt does is turn on this musical toy...

mushy.


Sometimes my hunny takes me on dates.
And even rarer, he'll sometimes let me take his picture.

I'm mushy like that.
And I love that boy.

I really love...

...a good manicure.


I don't know if you've ever gotten gel nails, but they're amazing.
I approve.

Logan's Latest: 7 months!

I say it every month. I know I'm being repetitive. But I don't care--he's getting so big, too fast.
I was looking at clothes for him in the clearance section at Target and realized I had to start buying things in 12 months or older.
I had to stop nursing him full-time because he wasn't getting enough throughout the day.
He laughs when I'm being funny.
He cries when he gets scared.
He recognizes his name.
He started CRAWLING.

I know.
I can't believe it either.
But here's some proof:


What happened to my helpless little newborn??





He is still the sweetest angel ever.
Always happy.
Always smiling.
Perfectly mellow.

I made a list for Wyatt when he was around 7 months old about his top 20 favorite things, so I put one together for Logan too...

Logan's Top 20 "Favorite Things:"

20. Anyone and everyone who smiles at him
19. Jabbering
18. Watching movies with Wyatt
17. Textured fabrics--our rocking chair, the rug, crazy printed material...
16. Reading books
15. Chewing on fingers, or anything squishy
14. The Itsy-bitsy spider (and other nursery rhymes/songs)
13. Drinking out of a cup/water bottle
12. Being outside
11. Noisy toys
10. Having a bare bum
9. Playing peek-a-boo, where he covers his own face with a blanket and waits for you to pull it off
8. Crawling
7. Being tickled, softly on his face and neck, but crazy every where else
6. Nap-time
5. Taking a bath
4. Sucking on his tongue
3. Eating
2. Wyatt
1. Mommy and Daddy

"bundle" of joy

Logan has recently picked up a really obnoxious habit...

...he likes to stick his hand into his mouth...right after he's been given a bite of food.
And then he promptly smears it all over 
e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.

So...

I put him in a make-shift straight-jacket.
(a big kitchen towel I can tie behind his neck like a bib, but tuck behind his back and leave his arms pinned)
 

Help me.

I'm bad at this...

I guess I didn't realize how much I like having the convenience of my camera phone...
...so, yet again, another camera phone post.
...and this time I won't promise it won't happen again, haha!

This is kind of a random post, soooo...whatever.

This picture was taken while I was doing the massive amounts of laundry piled up in my room.
Usually I try to synchronize the boys' naps so I can have a few hours to get things done, but lately they've felt the need to be on opposite schedules.
No joke: I'll put Logan down for a nap, but Wyatt won't be ready. As soon Wyatt does take his nap, Logan will wake up. And then right as I get Logan back down, Wyatt will wake up. 
So basically my house is kind of a wreck.
It's been driving me CRAAAAZY.
Then one day I was done with the craziness, so I piled the boys and all the laundry on my bed while they watched a movie. I was pleasantly surprised with how much they let me get done...it helps massively that they can keep each other entertained for small extended periods of time.
So anyway, I found one of Jeff's beanies and put it on Logan. I don't even think he noticed, but he was rockin' it.

I LOVE monsoon weather. EVERYTHING about monsoon weather--rain, clouds, wind...
And because it's been so wonderfully overcast lately (and because we have a great deal of pollution) the sunsets have been amazing. I wish I would have had my real camera for this one, but this will suffice.

And this is funny because I was trying to get Logan to smile with me for the camera, but after a few takes, and no winners, he was tired of being happy and patient...so I had Jeff dangle his bottle in front of him to see if that would make him smile...
...it worked for about a second before he realized he was being teased...

okay, I lied.

...you actually get ONE more post with pictures from my crappy, but faithful, camera phone...
...just one more, I promise...

(...although...I can't guarantee anything...)

 
Once upon a time, Wyatt was driving me crazy.
I know you all think he's this perfect angel, but really...
...he's a boy.
And in what fairy tale does a perfect angel boy exist?
I submit, NONE.
 So anyway, my head was about to explode from the high levels of craziness his little body was emanating...
...but instead of giving in to his toxicity, (although I might have been affected by a touch of crazy) I put that craziness to good use, and told him to run laps.
I asked him if he could run fast, with obvious doubt in my voice, to force him to prove me wrong.
And it worked.
Like a charm.

He spent the next 10 minutes running up and down the hallway, laughing hysterically, while I encouraged him to go faster.
He may have sustained injuries...
...but they were minor...
...and worth all his giggles.
And the bonus?? He took a nap without any problem.

Here's my little flash in action:


{The end.}

elated...jubilant...mirthful...you know.

I FOUND MY CAMERA!!!
Do you know what that means??
No more posts of pictures from my low-quality camera phone!!

And I found it in a place that I'd looked multiple times before...it was just sitting there, on the floor of the passenger side in our car...as if it had been there all along or something...

Okay, and I guess you do get one more post of pictures taken from my phone...





these boys crack me up!!

clever, clever...

We all know Costco muffins aren't really "muffins."

Wyatt has previously made the mistake of asking for cake for breakfast, which is TOTALLY unacceptable...
...but asking for a muffin???
Well, of course you can have a muffin!!

Haha!

{sleepyhead}

Today's morning was a surprise.

Wyatt had crawled into bed with us sometime during the night (he's sneaky like that), and Logan didn't wake up until almost 8am.

It was amazing.
I don't remember the last time I got to sleep in until 8am...

...anyway, Logan is the most happy right after he's fed (like most anyone, I suppose) and he and Wyatt always have a good time with each other in my bed while I try to wake up...
This morning though, Wyatt was still sleeping, so I got this little smile all to myself...



...that is, until he realized his playmate was there.

Wake up, sleepyhead!! Play with me!

remember that time...

So remember when I mentioned our first craft night, when we painted? Well, Noelle finally posted some pictures from that night, so I thought I'd steal some, heehee!





Thanks Noelle!

prrrrreciousss

Logan and Wyatt have finally come to a mutual agreement that they like each other...
Hallelujah. 
What's better though--they find each other hilarious.

I woke up one morning to hysterical fits of laughter...
...Wyatt had somehow climbed into Logan's crib and they were having a merry time together...
It helps me get a few more minutes of sleep while they entertain each other :)

Logan has also decided sitting isn't so hard, and now he prefers it over being in the crawling stance. 
Again, Hallelujah.
I'm just glad he got over the itch to crawl...although, I'm not sure how long it'll last...

Anyway, these two boys are the cutest babies I've ever seen, and no, I'm not biased.
(hahaha, okay, maybe I am)

Enjoy a few bath-time snapshots from this morning...
