Is Anybody Out There?

What to say, what to say? We're not even sure if there's anyone out there reading our little blog anymore due to the less than frequent posts that are made. Several weeks ago I was talking to Scott about how I missed writing. He had no clue what I was talking about. I told him that all through high school, I was certain that I was going to be a journalist. I loved writing in school. It didn't really matter the topic. I loved having journal time in class, and I enjoyed writing papers just to see how all of my thoughts and words would come out on paper. I honestly didn't consider teaching to be where I was headed (although, now I don't know that I can imagine not being involved in a school system in some way in the future). Scott reminded me that we have a poor, neglected blog that I could turn my attention to if I desired. So, here I am. We'll see just how frequent these posts become. Quite honestly, I have a tendency to be fired up for something & then bore with it quickly. Hopefully that won't be the case here. Even if there is no one who reads this, I think it will be a good outlet for me. Just talking about our little life here in Kansas City with my two favorite people in the world. So here goes......

Logan is at such a fun age right now. I'm sure that I will probably say this again and again until he reaches the age of the "backtalk". I'm pretty sure that Scott never went through that stage, but let me tell you, this girl did. I'm hoping Logan will take after his dad. Haha! Right now there is no sassy talk, but he does wear me out on a daily basis (in a good way). He's into EVERYTHING and he is ALL BOY. No doubt about that. I definitely get in a workout everyday chasing him around the house & getting him out of places where he's not supposed to be. Just recently, I began shutting the doors to the bedrooms and hall bathroom in order to keep him out of things. Not that that stops him....he just makes his way to the kitchen. He's walking everywhere, too. I had hoped he'd wait until he was at least one before starting to walk, but he showed us that ten months was just too long to be confined to crawling around the floor. :) It's been such a fun year watching him grow and change. He's learned so much & surprises us all the time with what he already understands. He knows what several of his toys are when we ask him to go find them. It's so cool to see him comprehend what we're saying to him. I'm planning to write him a letter on his first birthday (and every birthday following) to keep to give to him when he leaves for college. I'm not sure what all I'll say. There's just too much I want him to know about how he's changed our lives since being born. I also want to give him an idea of what he learned each year & how he changed. He's truly a gift from God....even on the nights when sleeping doesn't sound too appealing to him. We love him bunches and bunches, forever and ever. I guess that's all he really needs to know right now.
