I'm going to start this blog post by saying how much I'm in denial about my youngest little boy growing up. He's six tomorrow and lost his first tooth a week ago and in my head, six sounds so much bigger than five. I know he won't change overnight though of course, but I find my children's birthday's emotional, the years of them being little are passing by and whilst we're making as much of the years as possible, there's always that voice in the back of my head willing them not to grow up too fast. 

Logan, like his big brother does, makes me proud every single day. He's a character and a whirlwind in that his moods can swing and change at the drop of a hat (can't all five year olds!), but he has the kindest, loving side to him also. He's amazing at sharing, cares about things, and is like a sponge in that he soaks everything up especially when it comes to learning and reading.
