Happy Birthday, Logan!

Y'all know how much I love, love, love my nephew, Logan and niece, Lauren. Today Logan turns....the big 14!!! He for sure is growing up absolutely positively WAY too fast. :)
I was 14 years old when Logan was born. As a teenager, I was tickled all throughout my sister, Kelly's pregnancy. We did not know whether it was going to be a boy or a girl, but we were still VERY excited. After Kelly's original due date, I don't think I got much sleep because I kept waiting on Eric to call us in the middle of the night. Sure enough, he called us early on Friday, October 29th! Mama, Daddy and I rushed out of the house. We were so anxiously excited not only for ourselves, but for my sister and brother-in-law. The first time parents. So special.
 This is the very first time I held Logan. I remember it seemed like forever waiting to hold him, but it was definitely worth the wait!
 Logan wearing his Polo shirt, of course!
 We loved passing you around during your first Christmas. We were all so proud, and we still are.
 Logan loved his wagon at JJ and KK's house! Look at that smile!
 What a wonderful big brother he is! Here is Logan and JJ meeting Lauren.
 Sister and Brother catching snowflakes. AWW!
 Logan always loved driving the golf cart around the neighborhood.
 Fast forward to recent years. Wow, those 14 years sure did fly by. Both Logan and Russell are so handsome! :)
 Logan has such a bright future ahead of him. He is so smart and successful already.
Here he is with the box we sent him this weekend. He will open it tomorrow on his birthday. Wonder what it is? ;)
I cannot. Absolutely cannot believe you are officially 14 years old today! I hope you know that as your Aunt Mer, I am always here for you! You are such an incredible blessing in my life, and in everyone's life! Your whole family and all your friends love you so so much. I hope you know that. I can't wait for you to meet your new cousin in May. They will love you so much. You can teach them how to play soccer someday, too.
I hope you have a wonderful day, sweet Logan. Love you more than I can say!
Love, Aunt Mer
