No sign of the baby arriving anytime soon
Every night I smother Logan with kisses and hugs thinking that I may be in the hospital by the morning
We still don't have a name
My hospital bag is packed
The house is clean (for now at least)
Logan's bag is packed
My friend Megan is on call to watch Logan until my mom gets here
I hope we will still be friends after she watches him
I've been on many long walks which have resulted only in sore feet
I'm taking naps every day until I have this baby
Maybe I should have taken the doctor up on being induced on Monday
Stay tuned.....it's gotta be any day now!

Kyle's cousin Griffin Lowry (Feb 17th)
That's one a day! My day will come, but for now I'm going to shove some chocolate pudding and leftover VDay candy into my mouth while I can still blame the excessive weight gain on being pregnant....at least I still have that! Congrats to all the families of these cute newborns!

Kyle and I are in heaven.....we can actually hear the lesson! I have to admit that I missed him a little bit though. It should just be a couple more weeks before we have another one joining us in our classes again.

Logan had his 18 month check up yesterday. Apparently in the late stages of my pregnancy I have lost my mind and thought Logan was born on August 9th. I've been telling everyone, that was his birthday, have filled out paperwork with that date, and thought that Sunday was the last of us fighting him throughout 3 hours of church (he would start nursery). It wasn't until I was talking to friends last week that I was reminded that he was actually born on August 19th....oops (I was married on August 9th). Oh well, the doctor was fine with seeing him a little early and now I don't have to worry about checkups until he is 2 years old!
-He's skinny (25th percentile) and tall (95th percentile)
-He doesn't have the same love as his mom does for medical equipment (he continuously slapped the Dr.'s equipment away from him)
-He has a viral infection causing secretions to flow from nearly every orifice along with a complete loss of appetite.
-He's developing normally according to all screening tools, but I think he has a screw loose (like me)
-No shots needed this time around!!!
-Dr. Chang was surprised to see him with so much hair. I've been hearing that a lot lately, and it wasn't until I took him out of the shower and dried his hair that I realized he does have quite a bit!
I don't know what to do with it!
Doctor's appointment #2:
Today I had an ultrasound to look at the baby's echogenic focus. I didn't have an ultrasound this far along with Logan, so it was fun and crazy to see how big this baby is inside of me! I had filled my bladder as instructed and could barely walk prior to the exam. When the tech started the ultrasound she gasped at how full my bladder was with a huge baby head resting on it and couldn't believe I wasn't crying (I was inside). Apparently, I have really good bladder control. The little guy is estimated at weighing is 8lbs. 7oz today. He was healthy, moving, focus is still there, but the heart looks great. I can't wait to see him in color!
Then I had a doctor's appointment with my OB. I lost two pounds this week (which Dr. Ricci suggested was probably due to a difference in shoes....thanks doc). Other than that, she checked me and I am closed, darn it!

My sewing machine has officially been put away!!
So with the machine out of sight I found this simple project that only took about 1 hour to complete. I couldn't get a decent picture of mine but this is the crocheted heart garland....super easy and also very inexpensive!
And now I think I will delete the craft blogs from my reader so I don't have the desire to make anything else!

Last week, Megan planned the perfect little dinner celebration for me. I'm very thankful to my friends for the fun new outfits I was given, which I neglected to take pictures of because they were quickly organized into Logan's hand-me-downs.
I was lucky enough to take a few of these cupcakes home with me, I don't think Kyle even knew I had them they were gone so fast! I guess bragging about my lack of weight gain caught up with me, because I was 5lbs heavier on the scale today....which I think has to be just a difference in scales (but I guess it could be the cupcakes).
