Today Logan Turned Two!

The last 2 years have flown by, I’m an emotional person at the best of times but I become even more emotional when I think about Logan and his birthdays and the day he was born.

So far on both is birthday’s he has woken up around the time he was born. Which considering he was born at 4:44 am it isn’t great now when you want to sleep.

I still can’t quite believe that I now have a two-year old. Watching him growing into an amazing human being is just the best gift I have ever been given. He test’s his boundaries at least 10 times a day, he’s stubborn, he’s confident, cheeky, loving and affectionate to name but a few. In the last two years I have learnt so much about myself but I’ve also struggled with my new identity as a Mother/Wife/individual person. I was really uncomfortable with my post baby body at first but over the last 2 years I have grown to love my body and Logan has helped me with this. He doesn’t care what I look like he Loves me for me, unconditionally. If he continues to grow up this way then I will be one happy Mumma.



It’s a well know fact that young children can find their birthdays/parties over whelming and to a certain degree Logan found his party a little over whelming towards the  end. At one point he looked like he was going to cry when we sang Happy Birthday to him. Today his has been so good, we had a couple of tantrums but that was due to him being tired and needing a nap. Which bless him he didn’t get to have until this afternoon and slept for at  least 2 and half hours.

As a whole though Logan has been amazingly good and has loved every minute of his birthday. He has been throughly spoilt by friends and family. Getting all sorts of wonderful gifts . It does mean that I now have the task of sorting out some of the old toys to move out of the living room and up to his bed room so that we have room in our living room for all the new ones.

Myself and Matt decided to get Logan a slide as he’s been showing a lot of interest in them at the park. We got a medium-sized slide so it should see him through till he’s about 8. At the moment it is in our hallway so Logan has spent many a opportunity to go down it.

The down side to Birthdays and Christmas, you’re left with a ton of boxes that you have to try to crush down to fit in your wheelie bin, and it’s never easy to get the toys out either. So that is my job tomorrow. Remove all toys from the boxes and then crush all said boxes.

We also have a ton of cake that we have to get through. We bought Logan a cake and then family members bought/made cake to for Logan, so we have 3 decent size cakes to get through. lol Man I am going to put so much weight on.

One thing I did notice is that I didn’t really take any pictures at the party yesterday or today of Logan’s birthday. Part of me was disappointed because it would have been nice to have those memories. But I’m also glad because it means I was in the moment and not enjoying it through a lens which I think is so easy to do as a blogger.

How do you like to spend your child’s birthday?

    Aww it is so emotional when another year passes!! I was all teary when the grem turned 1. Looks like he had a lovely day – even if overwhelming for him. All those toys and boxes are always fun to deal with eh? Hope he liked his slide and wasn’t after a pink car!! Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst x

      He loves his slide although with all the rain he’s not been able to get out on it much

    Happy birthday, Logan. So surreal when the little babies we carried and fed and nursed and stroked , are all of a sudden big, talking, running units. I have a baby turning 5 soon…ridiculous! And FYI…you can NEVER have too much cake to get through. #bestandworst

    1. Sam says:

      yes I noticed we got through the cake quickly and now I’m missing it lol

    Oh yes, I get emotional every birthday and mine are now 7 and 10. They just roll their eyes and know that they have to listen to me whelling up talking about the day they were born. I love it…they cringe. What a lovely present for Logan, a slide, hours of fun and looks like he had a great day:)
