Adam is studying and hating life. :( Poor thing is just stressed to the max. He said one of his buddies in school gave up his multimillion dollar position in his dads business to be a doctor, and they looked at each other in class the other day and said, "Why do we want this again?" :) Adam is just looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel- end of April. Studying for boards will be easier. (And those will be done in June!)
The up side is that Adams current area of study in school is male and female parts. We both must secretly be twelve because this has brought ENDLESS hilarity into our home.
(to the left is Logan watching HIS show- blues clues. He likes to watch it this way.)
I have also been having the very first experience of making our very first insurance claim. Someone backed into our car and never left a note. Sometime later Adam and I are driving down the road and we see our bumper flapping in the wind. Lovely. THANKFULLY- we are with USAA, the best people ON EARTH, and getting our car fixed has turned into the easiest, least expensive process ever.
Adam and I are also trying out How I Met Your Mother. It is the most awful show ever. Really, really bad. So bad I cant decide which is worse- it or Gilmore Girls. However- Adam and I have so much fun discussing how truly terrible it is that we have sort of gotten sucked into watching it...
(to the left again is Logan sad and in trouble. He puts his nose against the wall.)
Logan, as always, is the very joy and high point in our lives. I would like to say that I cant believe at the end of March I am going to have a two year old but really... I can TOTALLY believe it. Logan is already too and just like my doc and dentist predicted- its the best EVER. He thinks everything is funny, he loves to figure out how things work, hes getting creative (he can spend a whole half hour occupied by play dough!) he is learning his "parts" (yay potty training soon), he likes to sing motion songs (the wise man and the foolish man being his favorite).
(to the right and left and a little bit above :) is Logan pretending that the jump rope is a stethoscope. We have been having a lot of physicals lately :)
I am just amazed, daily, by how much he learns (and grows- this is going to be one TALL kid). Logan says way over 150 words, is starting to put two and three words together, and his understanding is really progressing. When a baby cries in church Logan gets all concerned and grabs me and says, "mama, baby sad!"
(I posted a picture of Logan in one of his hidey holes above so instead enjoy one of his eating relish plain while we are at Sams Club.)
(For those of you who knew me in high school I caught Logan hiding in a hole the other day talking to his toys and saying, "oh sad!" Brilliant.)
(to the left is Logan vacuuming for me.)
Logan does love to hide in holes. He often makes nests. Everywhere.
He is so helpful to the point he gets too much in the way :) Logan wants to put the dishes away, cook, vacuum get my water, put away my books WHILE I am reading them, play Adams games, write my stories- funny enough putting away his toys is like- the chore to end all chores.
(to the right is Logan trying to brush my hair.)
He still loves animals- puppies being his first love and cows for some reason the second. Babies are his third love. Logan finds babies fascinating. He points them out to me everywhere we go.
Logan likes numbers. (he calls them num-nums.) he likes to point them out to me at the store, or in the car. He likes to make numbers with his fingers... (this love was NOT inherited by me. I hated math and numbers at ALL ages.)
(here is Logan to the left- no joke- going to sleep. Love the menagerie right?)
So all in all- despite the hell of second year medical school, and cold wintery weather- we are doing pretty darn good :) Just making sure to take stock every day of the things in our life that are important to us.
