And one last picture of sweet E, snoozing away in his car seat yesterday.

He loves this one song by Maroon 5 (he comes by it honestly) so we listen to it on repeat in the car a lot of times. The other day I was humming it and said something about it being stuck in my head. He squinted his eyes and cocked his head to the side and looked at me critically. Then he got a little grin on his face, like he was just waiting for me to say just kidding, and finally said, "NOOOOO! Mom!! It's not really STUCK IN YOUR HEAD!"
*Somewhere along the way he decided child locks (like the plastic kind that click over door knobs) are called padlocks. He told Jaymi that we took the "padlock" off his bedroom door. She was very confused.
*Everything is a negotiation with Logan, or at least he makes an attempt for it to be.
"You can play for three minutes and then it's time to leave,"I'll say.
"Three long minutes or three short minutes? Because I want three long minutes."
He'll think for a minute and then say, "Which toy?"
I'm sure this is more of a personality trait of his rather than him being three. Sometimes he is pretty clever, other times it just wears me out.
*The most awesome, unusual thing he says right now is definitely that he calls me Chels. Now it's just a habit and he's not even trying to be funny when he does it. It doesn't matter where we're at; in public or at home, about 75% of the time I'm "Chels."
"Chels! Can you get me some juice?"
"What are we having for lunch today, Chels?"
"Chels! I need to pee pee!"
"What did you say, Chels?"
The other day I ACTUALLY had the bathroom door shut for once in my life, and he started knocking on it and yelled, "Do you need some privacy in there, Chels????"
I've seen his teachers at preschool do a double take when he says it, but in my head, I just pretend I'm too young to be his mother. Don't mind me, I'm just Chels the nanny. Otherwise, it feels little too close for comfort to this, from Wedding Crashers:

We had pictures taken late Saturday afternoon. They were actually Everett's one year photos, but much to Nick's delight, we took some family pictures as well. Okay, here's the thing about pictures…. at least pictures for my family… no matter how well they may or may not go-- they are a total whip. It's always worth it, and I *LOVE* family pictures so I press on, but man!!
Nick absolutely hates taking pictures, so that's the first obstacle to overcome. Then, trying to coordinate what everyone will wear, getting everybody spit shined and out the door on time, trying to corral the kids (AND the husband who was the worst behaved out of all of them this go around!!) to capture said pictures… listen, I realize this isn't exactly an actual life problem, but none the less, it's enough to drive a person to drink.
And so that's exactly what I did when the pictures were finished! We took the pictures in Ft. Worth and made a pit stop by Joe T's for some fajitas and 'ritas to soothe the family picture PTSD.
