You notice the small things like little smiles and strength in his neck but it's not until you make noise and while on his tummy he looks up at you and smiles that you realize - oh boy, this is going to fly.
Don't grow up too fast - please.
We're all missing you. Come home.
Just when we think we might have Logans crys figured out they get worse :/ Our wee one is experiencing pretty bad gas & some acid reflux. That combined with some minor problems breastfeeding led to a trip to the Pediatrican yesterday morning. We got a prescription to help with the reflux, recommendations for over the counter gas medicine and advice to get through this cranky baby period. It helped to hear why he is spitting up & what his grunts mean but it doesn't make it any easier to deal with the spurts of crying/screaming. He was weighed again today - up to 10lbs 14oz! Growin like a weed!!
Happy St. Pattys! This was the extent of our day - both in our jammers at 6pm :)

5 years old today - which makes him in dog years the old man of the house. We let him get up on the bed this morning with us & I mixed some turkey in his breakfast. This afternoon he gets to open his gifts (yes we bought & wrapped him gifts). Two big stuffed animals from goodwill to rip apart and new water & food bowls :)
Happy Birthday pupppy!

We're still on track to close on our new house March 30th - notsofar away anymore...sometimes I can't believe we'll be home owners this month. We've been wanting this for so long. We have big dreams and a long list of things to do once we're in! So ready.
Kevin has been working the most normal work schedule I think he has ever worked & is able to be home most days between 3:30-4:00 at which point he becomes Mr. Mom. And regardless if I've had a stressful, cry filled day or not, the minute I pass Logan off is the minute I want to hold him again. But Kevin is both Dylan and Logans outlet for fun - somehow Kevin manages to throw the ball for Dylan all while entertaining Logan. A feat I have yet to figure out. Two days of the week Kevin goes to class 45mins away to finish up his masters. Come June he will graduate :) It takes all of his energy to power through those two days - before it was just having to sit through 2 three hour classes right after work now it means foregoing his Mr. Mom role as well, which I know he misses. Needless to say he'll be happy come June when school is donzo! Sometimes I think my days are busy but then I see Kevins schedule.
The jist of my days can be seen through the pictures I post on the blog. I'm busy just a different kind of busy. I feed, change and have carpet picnics with Logan. And if we're lucky and the weather is nice we go out for walks. It sounds boring and mundane but it's anything but that- it's one of the most difficult jobs I've ever had. They say you burn a lot of calories breastfeeding but I think more calories are burned trying to calm a crying baby or running around the house trying to clean everything for the one hour that the baby is napping. Amazing the mess a newborn leaves in his wake. Some days I feel like all my energy has been sucked right out of me - literally. I try to be supermom & it's a tough pill to swallow on the days I don't get everything I wanted to done. Just need to learn to drop the supermom complex and soak up more of this itty-bitty baby time :)
It's definitely been an adjustment for all of us but I already feel like we're slipping into a routine. We both have tough days - but it's amazing how a hot shower seems to wash off more than just spit-up. Bills may be tight and there may be some days when we look at each other and wonder how we're going to afford a new baby and a new house on one income at the same time but I'm extremely grateful for being able to stay home and couldn't imagine it any other way- pretty sure we're on the same page with that.
Love our little family & lovin our life.
never know when a baby will do something uber cute - good thing the camera has been living on my face these days
