Don't get excited. . .

This post will not contain pictures. I just want to check in quickly and let you know that Detroit made Andrew very ill and we are all just trying to get/stay well. Logan is getting over a cold and mommy is feeling achy and snotty tonight, too. Tomorrow will be a better day and Logan and I will wake up feeling 100%. Andrew will follow shortly behind. We finally have him on antibiotics and Hydrocodone. His initial prescriptions were going to cost $230 after insurance, so he suffered an extra day and got cheaper drugs. We value our health, but c'mon!

We're tired of being sick! It all started in California, but I realize you don't know that story yet. And, no, Amy - I'm not pregnant.

Sleeping now. (on the couch)

A brief post. . .

to tell you that I won't be posting.

Andrew leaves today for Detroit for work until late Sunday night. (Don't worry - I packed him some ghetto gear so he'll fit right in!) I had big plans of catching up on blogging, but Andrew is taking the computer with him, pictures and all!

Get excited, though, for details on our trip to California last weekend! One word: VOMIT.

Ella, Easton and Logan Round 2

Lauren brought Easton to town again on Sunday. They are on Spring Break and were looking for an adventure. We went to Jessica's house to play while the guys golfed. Everyone played nicely and had lots of fun!

Rice Cereal

Here are some pictures of Logan's first rice cereal last night. He has been waking up a lot more at night, so I decided it was time to fill his belly real full before bed time to see if he would stay asleep longer. He did. We were only up twice last night to give him his pacifier. As you can see, our first attempt wasn't that enjoyable. I shouldn't have waited until he was so hungry to try this. He was ready for his bottle (because that's what he knows happens after his bath, duh!) and I stuck a spoonful of mush in his mouth. He had a bottle "chaser" after every few bites to get him to swallow. But he slept better. . .

So tonight before his bath I fed him while he was in his bouncer. He was sitting nice and still at first and took a few great bites then he got excited and started bouncing so the cereal kept hitting his nose. It didn't take me long to decide to move him to his Bumbo seat. He at the whole little bowl without shedding a tear. It was a 20 minute process. Surely we'll get more efficient when he gets the hang of it.

Please don't tell Dr. McGehee, who said not to give him any rice cereal until after our 4 month appointment. Logan will be 4 months on Friday, so I don't feel that rebellious!

We are leaving for California on Friday to see Andrew's family. I am so nervous to fly with Logan now that he is so much more awake and aware. Hopefully he will be his usual laid back self. We'll let you know!

Tuckered Out

We're all exhausted today. By Fridays I'm a zombie. I've been going to bed after 11:30 every night for a while and just can't seem to get there any sooner than that. So right after this post I'm headed off to dreamland.

Here are a few pictures of Logan today after school. I bathed him right when we got home yesterday and gave him his bottle thinking that since it was his bedtime he would sleep through our hospital visit to meet our neighbors baby. Nope. He was wide-eyed the entire visit. So he got a little less sleep last night. Though he did not wake up until this morning - yay!

His hair is light brown and he's getting more and more every day. Its fuzzy and so soft. I smell all the Johnson's smell out of it before he makes it to bed. So yummy.

sorry. . .

I just realized it has been a week and a half since I've posted. So sorry Logan fans...

Here are two videos of him last week. Enjoy!

Logan had his first fire drill at school yesterday. I wondered several weeks ago how they would handle a fire, assuming they would just break the window in his classroom and start handing babies out to people in downtown Fort Worth. Turns out, that's not how its done. They have two cribs in the room that are on lockable wheels and they are allowed to put four babies in each crib and roll them out (not near as fast as passing them out the window in my opinion!). Logan was put in the crib with the twins, who can sit up. I would love to have been able to hear his thoughts during the drill.

Logan has two new babies in his class as of Monday, Kate and Cade. Kate is a model baby. She has lots of dark wavy hair, green eyes, fair skin, and a sweet round face. I could stare at her all day, so I wasn't surprised when Ms. Cathi told me that was Logan's new favorite pasttime. The addition of two babies in his class means that there is now an additional teacher. The ratio has made a swing in our favor to 3:1.

And. Drumroll please. Logan rolled over today back to front!!! My guess is that he's done it at school and they haven't told me (bless them!) so that I could see his "first" roll myself. Anyway, I had just stripped him down to his diaper for his bath tonight and he was laying on a towel on our countertop in the bathroom looking at himself in our mirror and he just rolled over toward the mirror. He was trying to kiss the cute baby he saw I suppose. Anyhow, he rolled off the towel onto the cold counter, so he wasn't as happy with his accomplishment as I was. YAY LOGAN! What a big boy!

In similar news, Logan has slept through the night for the past two nights. Now, I need to clarify on previous posts when I've mentioned that he's been doing this since he was 9 weeks old. He has gone 7 to 7 without eating since he was 9 weeks, but he was still getting up to say hi once or twice a night. (and 6 or 8 times at the end of last week) All I had to do was re-swaddle him or find his pacifier for him. The past two nights I've woken up at 3 or 4 thinking about how nice it is not to be woken up.

We have slowly broken him of all of the things that we made his sleep dependent on. I'm starting to wonder if we were more dependent on them than he was because he hasn't seemed to notice that anything has changed. First, we turned out the lights instead of just dimming them. Next, we took his crib wedge/positioner away. We forgot to turn on his humidifier the other night and he slept great, so I'm guessing the "white" noise wasn't a big deal to him. Tonight he wouldn't stop wiggling while I was rocking him, so I unswaddled him. Now he is sleeping peacefully on his side and I am hopeful that he will do so all night.

So now that this baby is so easy LET'S HAVE ANOTHER ONE, right? Andrew says no.

Our neighbors are at the hospital right now. They delivered Katelyn at 8 pm and we are so excited to meet her. We just can't stop thinking about what they are doing at each moment . We were just there. Or were we? It seems like a long time ago, but it has only been 15 weeks. Can't explain.
