Flying out this afternoon

Later today Logan & I leave for our trip back to North Dakota. It's a little after 4 am and I'm typing this message. Do you think I'm a little nervous, excited, anxious?? Logan woke up at around 2 am for his feeding and I haven't been able to sleep since then. We fly out tomorrow around noon. I think we'll do fine. Although I am a little nervous for the first leg of the trip. The flight is 3 1/2 hours and then we have a 3 1/2 hour layover in Minneapolis. Hopefully Logan will sleep for most of the flight. I'm going to check to see if we can actually get put on an earlier flight to Bismarck so we don't have that long at the airport.
I'm not sure what Mike will do while we're gone. The house is going to be so quiet without us. It will probably be a welcome break for him , I'm a little envious because he'll actually get a full nights sleep!! I know Pooh Bear is going to be wondering what happened to us. He hasn't been alone for a full day in over 2 months! I suppose I should go and try to get a little more sleep, before I know it Logan will be up again.

A Smile Captured!

I was finally able to get a picture of Logan smiling. It's such a proud moment in a parent's life :) Today Mike, Logan, and I went shopping. We wanted to find Logan a toy that lit up since we've found that he is fascinated by lights. We went to Toys 'R Us and found the perfect thing to buy. It's a Fisher-Price Kick & Whirl Carnival. It has a red & white colored arch, in the middle of the arch is a circle that is comprised of different shapes and colored balls. Below the arch there are 3 toys that hang down. When these toys are spun it causes the circle to spin, play music, and light up. After Mike finished putting it together he laid Logan on the floor, turned it on, and spun on of the toys. Logan just stared at the lights. Pretty soon he was smiling. It was so cute!! He's smiled before but just for a brief second or two, but when watching the toy I was actually able to grab the camera and snap a picture of him. The little joys of being a parent.

Pee, Poop and more Pee

When they say babies are pooping and peeing machines they aren't kidding!! Yesterday while I was changing Logan he ended up peeing on me, the changing table, and the carpet. Then today I had a doctor's appointment, Mike was going to meet me there to pick up Logan. I had changed him before we left the house. When we got to the doctor's office though I could smell that he had pooped again. I took a seat in the waiting area figuring that I would change him once we got back to the examining room. I took one look though and saw that it was coming out of the diaper and seeping into the carseat!! I could not believe it, how can such a little guy make so much poop?!?! After getting done at the doctor's office I came home and asked Mike if the diaper was on wrong or something. He said nope the poop just spilled out everywhere! We had to throw the carseat cover in the wash along with his outfit. Then I decided to run into town to grab us some dinner. I get back to the house only to find out that Logan has now managed to pee on his sock, changing blanket, and on Mike's jeans. He's definately living up to the saying!

A Nice Weekend

The weekend goes by way too fast!! It was a nice and relaxing one though, on Sunday I left Mike & Logan and went shopping. I found a couple pairs of pants and of course some shirts for Logan. It's so much fun shopping for a little baby! Everything is so cute!! I bought him some onesies from Old Navy. Even though I went shopping for myself it seemed like everywhere wanted me to shop for him. I think almost every store I went to was having a baby sale. Old Navy, Sears, Mervyn's, JCPenney's.............everywhere!!
Only one more week and Logan & I go back to visit family in North Dakota. I'm looking forward to it, I can't wait for everyone to meet him. I'm kind of nervous about the plane ride though. And we have a 3 1/2 hour layover in Minneapolis so that should be interesting.

Logan & I finally went over to get his social security number. I can't believe it's taken this long, next time I will definetely just get it done while we're in the hospital. Oh well, live and learn . Logan has been doing good, last night he had a bad night though. He woke up from his nap at about 1 o'clock. At around 4 I fed him and thought he would lay down again. WRONG!! Everytime I went to lay him down he would wake up. At around 5 I put him in his swing, he drifted off. I let him sleep in there for about 10 minutes then I moved him onto the couch. He slept about another 10 minutes and then woke up crying. At around 6 I gave up because I figured if he fell asleep then his whole night would be messed up. He was fussy for the rest of the night, at one point I just put him in his crib for about 45 minutes and he just cried. I could not calm him down. I think he just needed to cry though because once I gave him his bath and fed him he fell asleep upstairs at 9:30 and slept until almost 2.

New car, more visitors, starting a new session

Busy, Busy, Busy!!! Well we got a new car on Tuesday. We bought a 2005 Ford Focus ZX4. So far it seems to be a nice little car. Hopefully it won't hurt our pocketbooks as much when we fill that compared to the Explorer. Mike's driven it every day since we bought it, I think he likes it. Or maybe tolerates it, I mean it's not the Mustang - hahahaha.
Grandpa arrived here on Wednesday and is staying until Sunday. We've had a nice visit with him. He went golfing one day and yesterday we went and met Darrell for dinner. Grandpa bought Logan a Cradle Swing, Logan loves it!! He sits in there and just swings away. I think it will be a lifesaver for me, I might be able to get some stuff done around the house while he's awake!
Mike started a new session at school this week. We were hoping his Saturday class would only go until noon but it looks like it's going to go until 5. Oh well, not much we can do about it.
