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.

You should rub some jam in the carpet and at least make it worth his while as his face in in the carpet. Can't wait to see him next month!

Mr. Sweet Cheeks for President!

I am so looking forward but at the same time not. Lucas is getting too big too fast.

I was so happy to borrow Logan's Nonny for a couple hours the other day. It was nice having some adult interaction.

Your bro and his fam met Lucas too this past Sunday. All it does is make me miss you and the rest of the bunch all the more.

Glad to know one of us is getting some rest - ha!
