Happy 5 & 23 Months!

Is this not the cutest little face you've ever seen? Bright eyes and all! Logan is 5 months old. (I have done a terrible job of posting Logan's monthly birthdays. It's crazy how things change with baby #2. I promise I do love him just as much, but I'm just so much...busier, to say the least.)
Logan is still such a good and happy baby. He is content most of the time unless he is hungry or just wants to be held for a while. He likes playing in his exersaucer and play mat, but before long wants to held for a while. He constantly searches the room for momma, which I love, of course! I think he is a momma's boy. I wouldn't have it any other way!
Logan is cutting his first tooth. You can't see it, but you can feel it. He has tried rice cereal a few times, along with a little baby food. I need to start feeding rice cereal to him daily, but just keep forgetting. Nursing is so much easier, but I realize he is growing up and needs to start adding a little solid food to the diet. ;)
Logan can roll over from him stomach to his back. He does this when he's playing on his play mat. He giggles when we play with him and we can really get him going at times. He has just started blowing raspberries with is mouth. It is so cute. Sometimes he does it when he is finished nursing and sometimes he does it random times throughout the day.
Logan has never taken a bottle well, but he is getting better. He started attending Mother's Day Out on Thursdays and gets extra practice with a bottle. He also takes a bottle some at Fit Kids (our gym's nursery.)
Big Sister turned 23 months old this month. It's hard to believe that she will be 2 years old next month. Crazy! We are just going to keep it simple this year and have a family party. Parties are expensive and I simply do not have the energy or capability of throwing a big party with two this small. Life with two babies has forced me to slow down. I get so frustrated at times, but eventually just give in. Several of our friends are about to have their second child, and I'm so ready to be in this together. Sometimes it is overwhelming and I'm ready to have some others who can relate with me. Motherhood is no easy task!
I promise she is not sucking her thumb. I think she's just licking her fingers.
Madison is really becoming a "big sister." She wanted to help buckle Bubba in the other morning. He kept trying to grab the seat belt and she would say, "no, Bubba," and move his hand away. She is definitely going to boss him...and us!
Madison is very polite. She says thank you, please, you're welcome, etc. I think it's about time for us to start teaching the "'mams and sirs." She is still as fiery and strong-willed as ever. We (Madison & Momma) often clash with our strong/similar personalities, but hopefully this is just a phase. This is definitely a hard age, with the tantrums and all. Maybe it will get better in a couple of years. Ha!
Happy 5 & 23 Months! We love you!

I can't believe Logan is 5 months old! It seems like weeks ago that you had him! I guess that proves how fast time flies by! Isn't it crazy that Madison is almost two? When I stop and think that Cale is actually two, it gets me everytime!
