Thirty-One

I turned 31 last weekend. Yup, I'm old.

Actually I don't feel that old. I feel lucky. 30 was the best year yet, so here's to 31!

Terry bought me a new sewing machine. It's beautiful. It's my first computerized sewing machine. It even has this foot that you place the button you want in, and it makes the buttonhole all by itself. The perfect size and everything. I don't even have to press the peddle. It can go automatically by pressing one button! I'm so spoiled.

That would be the Brother CS-6000. Bad Ass! For those of you who are nerdy about sewing machines, here as the stats:

  • 100 stitch functions
  • 7 automatic one-step buttonholes
  • Needle stop position mechanism
  • Needle threader
  • 6 point feed-dogs
  • presser foot leveling button
  • Drop feed
  • Free arm
  • Dual LED sewing lamp
  • F.A.S.T bobbin winding system
  • Quick set drop-in bobbin
  • Sexy isn't it?

    Anyway in other news, we fed Logan some chocolate cake. He loved it. The first thing he did when we put the piece in front of him was to put both hands into the cake and squeezed. Ew!!!!
    He didn't realize it was edible for awhile, but once he did, he started shuffling it in. He even got some up his nose! We had to swipe a q-tip up his nose afterwards hehehe. Gotta love it.

    I had a fabulous birthday.

    Who's Winning?

    I think we've pretty much decided that Logan is going to walk and talk at the same time.

    If that's the case, then who wins the bet?

    Here is some first attempts at talking. Totally awesome eh?


    video

    Yes, Logan is going through my underwear drawers while he's talking. I wasn't going to upload this particular video because of that. But every time I turn the camera on, Logan goes completely crazy and starts screaming. He's a bit of a ham hehehe. So I had to wait until he was too distracted to see that I was sneaking a video. So please feel free to make fun of my granny panties if you must :P

    First Attempt

    Grandpa Dougie would be proud. The car walking toy that he bought for little Loags is working its magic! Here is Logan's first attempt at walking (with help of course).

    Be It Resolved

    Team T-Lo has gotten together and passed a measure to limit the power of the almighty Slurpee. The following resolution serves as notice that Slurpee is to no longer hold any member of Team T-Lo in its evil grasp.

    *****

    Whereas: in the past Slurpee has caressed us with its heavenly and intoxicating flavour.

    Whereas: Slurpee has made us addicted and cranky sugar fiends.

    Whereas: Each member of Team T-Lo (with the exception of Lo) has gained a significant amount of weight due to Slurpee's nefarious tricks.

    Be It Resolved, therefore, that no member of Team T-Lo is permitted to drink a Slurpee on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. (exception: if said Monday is part of a long weekend, Slurpee may be permitted if all members are in agreement).

    Be It Resolved that no Slurpee will be had on a weekend unless the following conditions are met:
    - both adult participants of Team T-Lo must be in agreement about buying said Slurpee. (No member of Team T-Lo is permitted to drink a Slurpee alone)
    - The specified Re-fill cups are the only containers in which said Slurpee is allowed to be received into.

    Be It Resolved that all these rules may be dissolved in the event of a "very bad day." The method for invoking this resolve are as follows:
    - One member must have had a "very bad day" in which case that member will call a family caucus to discuss the level of said "very bad day"
    - if it is decided that the "very bad day" is indeed the case, a motion will be passed to revoke all Slurpee resolves
    A "very bad day" will consist of at least 2 of the following conditions:
    - something awful happens at work.
    - something awful happens at home while watching the member of Team T-Lo named Logan.
    - it is raining, snowing, too hot, flooding, excessively windy or any other weather condition that may cause a member of Team T-Lo to become pissed off
    - a certain time of the month comes for the member of Team T-Lo named Tawny and she is in need of serious comfort food in the form of Slurpee
    - there is major computer trouble for the member of Team T-Lo named Terry and he is in need of serious comfort food in the form of Slurpee
    - if any member of Team T-Lo is kept awake for too long by the member named Logan and is in need of a serious caffeine and/or sugar fix in order to function properly.

    Resolved this, the 9th day of November, 2007

    Tricks

    Logan is too young to have treats for Halloween, but he was totally into the trick. He got his parents good.

    You see, Logan has been scheming for weeks to turn his parents into Zombies of the worst kind. He started slowly, waking up in the middle of the night and fussing a little. Then he worked up to fussing a little more and refusing to sleep. Finally ending up not sleeping at all for two or three hours during the night and keeping his parents awake the whole time.

    We tried everything. Turning on a light, having him stay up later at night, warming up his room etc. Nothing worked. He wanted us to have no sleep so that we would be Zombies by Halloween. And boy did he succeed! on October 30th, he woke up when i got home form work at 10:00 and stayed up until 2:00 in the morning. We finally gave up and let him sleep in our room so that we would get a few uncomfortable winks.

    On Halloween, even though it was night of the living dead at the Team T-Lo house, we still managed to stay awake and hand candies out to the little kiddies. We even tricked Logan back by making him wear his Aviator costume while we took pictures. The picture below is Logan the Red Baron with his goggle hat. He hates that hat and tried to pull it off the entire time we were taking pictures hehehe




    Halloween night was exciting enough to keep Logan up until 8:00 before he was falling asleep on the floor. So we got him ready for bed and figured he would be up to his old tricks again. But we had one last little Halloween trick up our sleeves. You see, mommy was busy sewing ties onto Logan's puffy quilt while daddy was handing out candy. We tied the quilt down in his crib. The back of Logan's head has been a sore spot in the bath, against the high chair and in his blanketless crib for awhile now. The joys of teething molars.

    We shut our door and shut off all the lights and got ready for bed. by 8:30 mommy, daddy and baby were fast asleep in our beds. I woke up at 5:30 this morning when Terry's alarm went off. Logan has slept through the night for the first time in weeks! His Halloween trick was over (or at least halted for one night). He eventually woke up at 7:00. Aaaahhhhhh sweet sleep! Below is another picture of our beautiful baby without the hat. He's much happier.
