Let’s start with a belated Happy Valentines Day! I am so blessed to have the most wonderful Valentines that no matter how frustrated they make me keep me smiling and my heart happy.

Logan had his regular follow up with his developmental pediatrician and we are more than ecstatic to be able to say he is showing improvement! Just typing this brings tears to my eyes, Miss Holly saw all of our babies starting in the NICU and still follows Logan today said this is normally when she stops charting progress with age when she has patients with Cerebral Palsy such as Logan does. We still are not able to determine the type of CP Logan has and they most likely will not give us a “type” until he is around 4 years old. Just the fact that she is so happy and proud of his progress and determination makes this Mama more proud of him than I could ever be and I have been so proud since I knew I was pregnant. I love all Four of my children more than words could ever describe, Logan wants to be like his sisters and they take care of him and entertain him day in and day out.

Here are his developmental level results:

Gross Motor: 7-8 Months

Fine Motor: 17 Months

Receptive Language: 13 Months

Expressive Language: 13 Months

A big change from six months ago, we have never shared these results before however for our family and close friends to know the progress we feel it is important.

August 2010 developmental level results:

Gross Motor: 6 Months

Fine Motor: 12 Months

Receptive Language: 9 Months

Expressive Language: 9 Months


The end of January we ventured to Kansas with most of my Quad Momma Besties thanks to Billy Graf. Billy is such an amazing husband, he planned a surprise party inviting all of us and our husbands for the gorgeous Moni!! We had such a great time over the weekend, there never is enough time together. I love you all so very much!

Waiting for the birthday girl and Billy with our hubbys…I can still feel the excitement!

All of us with Moni…out of 16 we were only missing 3 Mommas.


This is what happens when the girls do not want to sleep and they have their Daddy wrapped around their little fingers.


Hehehe…we did it Izzy (Madison calls Elizabeth this).


Blocks are a favorite right now so I hide them until they or I am ready for my feet to hurt.


Cheeeeeeese, I did it Mama!


Logan helping Daddy build-do not get in Daddys way he is worse than an almost two year old!!!!


With the cold weather and snow we had we did not leave the house for over a week so the girls came up with new things to do besides just destroy every room.


Picnic with some night time animals


I’m ready for the sand, where is the warm weather…we live in Texas right?


Elizabeth had been fighting naps and night time for a while. This is an exhausted Lizy after a fight and making herself sick in time-out falling asleep.


Mama felt bad so she got to sleep in our room. She is so sweet and precious even when she is fighting us.


Play time while sissy sleeps!


Kisses brother…xoxoxo


Elizabeth, what are you doing with Logans shoe?


New snack container, not only that she is also using socks.


Love to you all ~ Amy-Jo
