"Boys are found everywhere—on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair
and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket."

Four years ago today, a sweet baby boy with a dimple in each cheek, and extra-long fingers and toes came into our world.  He's a happy, goofy, curious, mischievous, super duper smart, caring and loving boy who wears his heart on his sleeve. 

Logan James.

You've taught me more these past four years than most people learn in a lifetime.  Because of you, I know that ants and roly poly's are cute, and that I shouldn't step on them, because they're just twyin' to get back to their mamas.  Because of you, we frequently eat dinner with your daily 'creature catch' as our kitchen table centerpiece.  These are the things make me smile.

Since you've been potty-trained, the bushes and trees in our yard (and at the park, and various other public places) have miraculously doubled in size.  We thank you for sharing your organic materials with the world.

You leave no stone unturned, and you search around each and every corner.  I often find you in sticky (and sometimes always dangerous) situations, but your dimples act as your 'get out of jail free' card, and come to the rescue each and every time.  (Disciplining a naughty boy with double dimples is an impossible task, and one that I choose to avoid.) Despite being given a free pass since birth, and having never been punished, you're a very well-rounded young man.
