Logan: 1 Month Old

Little Logan turned 1 month old today at 1:40pm.  Wow...1 month already??!!  He's by far, our smallest baby at one month coming in at 5lbs, 14oz, 19.5in.  Every day, our number one goal for Logan is to eat, eat, eat and he's been doing a good job.

A VERY proud and helpful Big Sister!

Logan's 1st Bath

Logan finally had his first bath at home last weekend.  Baths are not my favorite thing to do with babies until they can sit up on their own.  This somehow was not a bad experience...Logan is quite an easy going baby.  Oh, and he's pretty cute too!

Introducing Logan Robert

This beauty sent from God joined us unexpectedly on Friday August 24, 2012.  Here's his story:

A placental abruption awoke me at 11:30pm on Thursday August 23, 2012.  I was only 34 weeks pregnant.  And...Jodi was in Arkansas on business.  My neighbor and friend Karen drove me to the ER within 10 minutes of calling her.  Just the sound of her voice when she picked up her phone that night was enough to calm me down.
My friend Joy arrived at the hospital at 8:30am the next morning.  She was the perfect person to be by my side that entire day...including joining me for my first c-section.  What a blessing she was for so many reasons and in so many ways.  We are forever bonded that is for sure.
After many tests, an ultrasound and visits with the OBs on duty, it was determined that this baby needed to come out soon and a c-section was the safest way to deliver due to the amount of blood I was losing.  Out came a BOY (we didn't know the sex) at 1:40pm on Friday August 24, 2012. 
Logan needed a lot of extra care and monitoring due to his early arrival.  Despite all the cords and bandages and such, I thought he was just perfect.

Meeting Logan for the first time during my c-section.
Love at first sight.
Jodi was able to catch an early flight back from his trip...he arrived at 7pm that day.  We rushed to the special care nursery immediately so he could meet Logan.

Paeton Starts 4K!

Paeton started 4K at Willow Springs School on Friday September 7, 2012.  What a whirlwind it was getting her ready for school those very last days of summer.  I still can't believe I have a child in school already?!  Wow.  I was completely fine until I saw her board the bus and then I lost it...still snapping pictures but bawling my eyes out.  I'm pretty sure all the other parents at the bus stop knew she was my first.  I'm so excited to see Paeton grow this year and all that she will learn.
