T.V. is his very favorite thing. Each day he did not take a nap there was a sign on the T.V. that said "No Nap=No T.V." For a non-reader he could tell me what that sign said quickly!
In other news, I am constantly amazed at how different my two boys are.
Cole has always hated sleep; Logan reaches for the bed when I go to put him down. Cole tries to sweep and mop and cries and yells because he can't move the broom and mop the way he wants, Logan, on the other hand, picks up the broom and patiently moves it and is just so happy to hold the broom and pretend he is helping.
Logan is way more aggressive than Cole was at this age--he will give his cousin Brady a toy just so he can take it away. And today Logan did something that I always thought Cole might do, but thankfully never did...put his toys in the toilet.
This is not good. Especially because there is also a potty trained toddler here that doesn't always flush---so Thomas the Tank Engine and his friend Percy went swimming in a nice yellow lake.

My little Cole does not want to nap anymore! He is three. I am not ready for this!
Out of the past five days, he has only napped twice. There are tears (and not by Cole), frustration and my spanking hand is tired.
I am starting to think he is done with napping. Fellow bloggers, is this possible? I feel like there should have been a warning letter from the government or church or school or sombody when he turned three.
Because I haven't blogged in a while, I will post some pictures of my little rebel and his brother.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday Brady (my nephew) spends the day with us while his mommy is dentisting...
More to come soon. I won't take a break anymore, so keep checking.

We were out of town during his birthday weekend, so we had an impromtu party in Arkansas with family. We had a cake (made by Zach), and his cousins and PapaLee and LynnLynn got to celebrate with him.
We traveled on his actual birthday, so when we got home he got to pick out a special dessert at the store. Bri and Nick (his aunt and uncle) stopped by to give him a present...
Logan has gotten quite good at enjoying birthdays!

Logan LOVES pizza! So, his first birthday was a pizza themed party. We all had a great time!

We have been:
Here are the boys with cousin Hannah.
Here is mom and her friend Kathleen waiting to start the swim.
The last two pictures sum up a lot. Cole is cautious. Especially around water. Logan jumps right in--he doesn't know that he she be afraid of some things. Maybe it is the birth order thing? Logan has a great mentor (Cole) that has already taught him so much.
In other news:
- I (Lauren) had my neurology appointment today (follow up for the Bell's Palsy/temporary face paralysis). Things look pretty good--although she said my eye was still a little saggy. I have a follow up brain and neck scan scheduled on Friday.
- We got a lot of work done on our front flower beds. Our house is actually starting to look like we are doing things on purpose.
- We bought a boat. Yup. It is 20 ft. long and cost $500 (so you can imagine the condition it is in). It is Zach's project for the next year (or two, or three, or ten...)
Hope this brings you back up to speed. And I promise to try and not let it go so long between posts again!
