Our newest family member is fitting in really well. It has been amazing to see Tobey take Kelsey under his wing. They are just the best of friends. He’s also teaching her all kinds of bad habits like drinking out of toilets and jumping up on tables. But, I’ll forgive him because he’s so sweet with her.

Over the weekend, Olivia met Jade. Jade was also born premature and will be in Olivia’s preschool class this year. They will also be in the same grade in the same school district and are destined to be the best of friends. I feel so blessed to have met Jade’s mother and cannot wait to see Olivia’s friendships develop over the years.

Yesterday, Olivia sent Logan a birthday balloon. It has become tradition to do it every year on their birthday. We don’t really talk about Logan in our family as much as we should or as much as we’d like. I don’t know why. . .we just get busy with life. He’s never far from my mind, however. Sometimes I don’t think he’s far from Olivia’s mind either. Yesterday, Olivia looked at me and said, “Logan loves me today.” I don’t think Olivia has fully grasped who Logan is, but she definitely knows he’s very special to our family. Today, she fell asleep in the car and upon waking she asked, “Where’s Logan?” It’s as if she knows far more than I believe she does. As she gets older, I am anxious to hear about her perspective. . .losing her twin brother and what that is like for her. It breaks my heart because at some point in her life she is going to fully comprehend the magnitude of everything that happened and it’s going to break her heart. I’m sure Olivia’s birthday party was nothing compared to Logan’s party in heaven. Oh, how I miss him and love him and wish he was here.
