I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We had much to be thankful for this year. Logan's good health for starters (heart etc.) and a happy and healthy toddler who TOLD us what he was thankful for. Topping his list, of course, was toys then that was followed by family and friends. I can't believe his vocabulary lately. When Birth to 3 comes to our house for Logan, they always comment on how clear Devin's speech is. They have told us he is way ahead for his age. That makes me feel proud, but I can't help feeling sad that Logan won't be speaking as well when he is Devin's age. I am so thankful that I have been able to understand Devin's speech for years now. I fear the frustration that Logan and I may encounter when he is older and can't get his point across to me.

I am so thankful for our wonderful friends and family who have been so supportive this year and loving towards Logan.

Logan has been fighting off congestion and a cough since he was sick in October. I feel like he may be this way all winter. He just can't shake it, but he is such a trooper to be so content when feeling so icky.
In other Logan news, he ate about a quarter cup of cereal this morning! He did a much better job swallowing and he opened his mouth for the spoon. I am hopping we can avoid therapy to help him spoon and bottle feed. No luck with bottles though lately.

Happy Thanksgiving :)

Devin sounds a lot like Ian. I'm like you- it's exciting and amazing to hear his vocabulary...and sad and frustrating at the same time because it's so awfully hard not to compare the two boys.

So happy to hear that Logan is doing better with feeding. Chase has been eating about a 1/2 jar of stage two foods at a time. He seems to like them (?) better than the cereal. I suppose anything tastes better than rice cereal...

Hey there! We have Ru on the oatmeal instead of the rice cereal, and she's eating that well. I've heard the oatmeal tastes better (but I haven't tried it myself!)

I totally understand the bittersweetness involved with the accomplishments of the older sib(s). I am so proud of my 2 boys and their ever expanding vocabularies but at the same time worry that it will be difficult with Macy (and even that I will miss out on many of the experiences I have had with my boys). Maybe we just have to learn not to compare and celebrate each of our children's accomplishments (as they come in their own time). Easier said than done, I know!

That is fun that Logan is liking the cereal! I am holding off on starting solid foods until after Macy's heart surgery (next week, YIKES!)
