Bring on the food

Since Logan has been snotty for over a week, the doctor wanted to see him to make sure he didn't have an ear infection. His ears looked great and the doctor said he might just have a sinus infection, but that everything else looked perfect. With his clothes on he was at 20 lbs 11 oz, which explains why I have to switch arms every few minutes when I am holding him:)

The doctor also said that it would be OK to let him try some of the Thanksgiving favorites such as mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes and maybe even a little taste of pumpkin pie:)

I can't wait to have 4 whole days with him.

I am signing him up for the infant swim lessons. They do not start until January, but I am really excited to get him the water and get him ready for the summer.

Much love for my momma


Fist bumps!!

Thankful for so much!

It has been too long!! We have been so busy and Logan has been making sure it stays that way. I have no idea where the evenings go anymore. Instead of doing laundry, dishes, working out, etc., I spend all of my time with Logan (and Dave).

He has been sleeping through the night for quite some time now and that is just one of the many things I am thankful for:)

He has made it through all of his veggies and is now enjoying fruits. He opens his mouth for more before I can even get another spoonful made. He has also been talking a lot more lately and getting better at his "m" and "b" consonant sounds.

I seriously can not believe we are nearing the 6 month (1/2 a year) mark. I am really looking forward to sharing the holidays with him. I am hoping that he doesn't get too crabby as we travel the state of Missouri visiting family, ok, so maybe that is a slight exaggeration, but not much:)

He has been fighting congestion which wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have to suck his boogies out. He HATES that sucky thing with a passion. The other night I was trying to get these stubborn snot streams out and he was crying so hard that he had tears, which in turn gave me tears:( I felt like a meanie, but it was for his own good. (whoa, I think that was a mom statement).

What a feeling...when were talking to the ceiling...

5 months:)

Today, Logan is 5 months old, I just can't believe how fast the time is going. Every day with him is even better than the one before. His new favorite thing to do is to make these high pitched sounds. Sometimes, it sounds like his is singing us a little song:)

Saturday was his first trip to the zoo and the first time mommy had a freak out. I put him in his stroller so I could make him a bottle and he slipped out of his stroller. I must have seen him sliding down out of the corner of my eye because I was able to get him before he hit the floor...that sounds so horrible!!! I grabbed him, but I couldn't tell if his head hit and I thought he was gonna start screaming, but as soon as I picked him up he was like, whatever. He was just looking around for his bottle and didn't shed a tear. I , however, starting crying my eyes out. I felt like a bad mother and that split second of fear was the worst:(

Thankfully, he is fine and doesn't even know what happened...maybe he just thinks he went down a slide:)

Here is a sample of his sweet singing voice...

1st Halloween!!

Logan had his first Halloween and I am very dissapointed in the lack of candy he collected for mommy:) Since Halloween landed on a Saturday we spent much of the day running errands and therefore ended up with a crabapple come the night. Poor guy just wanted a little sleep. I dressed him up, but I made sure we were both happy. Momma got to see her little man in a costume, but it was more like a sleeper which probably made him happy.

Them bones, them bones...


them dry bones:)
