Jason's oldest friend Jessica had a baby boy almost exactly 1 month before Logan was born. We've been waiting to get these 2 together for some time, and we were all so excited that it worked out to meet up over the Holiday weekend. Jessica got the boys matching outfits that we had them wear :) I'm only posting photos that don't show August-West that well because Jessica hasn't posted any pics of him on Facebook yet because she wants to get her birth announcements out first...so while we don't have that many mutual friends, I would just hate to spoil her plans and leak the footage of her gorgeous baby boy :) So here are some shots of the two boys together, with the focus being on Logan...
At the end of October, we headed to the Central Coast for Cal Poly's Homecoming weekend. We rented a house with a few of our closest friends and had a great time! We headed home on Halloween, so Logan was a bit festive! Enjoy!
These are horribly out of order...but you get the idea...we had a great weekend!

We stopped by Pismo Beach and the Sand Dunes on our way home...we happened upon some kite surfers...so cool!

Such a grumpy Laubster!!
We found this house while walking...isn't it perfect?
Wow! I think I forgot that my blog is NOT facebook because I just realized that I haven't posted ANY of the adventures we've had in the past month! So please allow me to bombard you with photos of the following....
- Visiting San Luis Obispo
- Meeting new friends (Thanksgiving weekend)
- Meeting new family (Thanksgiving weekend)
- More turkey fun (Thanksgiving weekend)
- Mommy making Logan wear funny things
I'm not going to do a lot of writing...just photos!
...Because at that time, both the DAY and the WEEK are halfway over!!
I know my post from yesterday was a BIT dramatic...but Monday's are hard! I'm sure any working parent would agree...you have to leave your blissful land of baby-snuggles and enter the harsh world of WORK...not that staying at home isn't WORK...it is, but it's a bit more rewarding...I think so at least.
But never fear! It's Tuesday at noon so my spirits are up!
I'm also really REALLY hopeful for the very near future as Iris and I are about to open up our own Etsy.com shop! I don't want to say anything about it on here until it's up and running- at which point I will have an ENTIRE post boasting about our shop and what you can get, how much you can get it for and how you can tell ALL your friends about it!
Be on the lookout for something SASSY...and something LAUBSTERY :)
Logan has started making a few friends, and has been on a couple play dates recently! The first was with our friend Carla (Married to my coworker Justin) and her 7-week old son Kai! Carla and I met for lunch and then went to a Gymboree Play & Learn class with the boys- it was a blast! Logan loved having so many other babies around, and he loved all of the songs we sang. I decided to join Gymboree so we can keep going to the classes :) We get to go to 2 per week, so I'll take him on Fridays and then Lisette can either take him on Wednesdays, or Jason can take him on Saturdays :)
The second play date was with our friend Amanda (Jason's old roommate) and her son James who is just 2 weeks younger than Logan! It was fun to see these 2 boys together because they're doing the same development things- raspberries with their lips, trying to sit up, tummy time- we think they'll become life long friends together! I'm dying for Jame's keen fashion sense to rub off on Logan (ie Amanda's keen fashion sense to rub off on me!)
Tummy time on a mirror at Gymboree! Logan did great!
The whole class! It was evenly divided - 4 boys, 4 girls! But oddly enough, all of the boys stayed on ONE side of the mat, and all of the girls on the other...it felt like a middle school dance...with very small middle-schoolers.
Kai and Logan! Logan looks ENORMOUS next to "little" Kai, but they were roughly the same size when they were born- just 4oz apart! So I'm sure Kai will look enormous soon enough!
Hello Logan! I don't even remember Logan being as small as Kai! Sad!
Wow. This doesn't look forced at all!
Checking each other out.
Don't you just LOVE James' cheeks?? And his hat?? And his Jacket??
It's as if Logan is saying "No James, don't slouch! Sit up straight like this!"
