Here's my baby!

Logan was 2 weeks old in this picture! He is beefing up and doing better about his days and nights! Life is great and we are learning one day at a time how to live with 2 boys! Logan is still waking up 4 times a night to eat and enjoy his one on one time with the breasturant...and James isn't missing out on the fun either. He started waking up at 5:00 am to announce he can't find his boo (pacifier) and come snuggle in with mom and dad...we only noticed today that this was becoming a trend! But he is sick so we will allow a few more days. James has started to put himself to bed and I am enjoying that little bit of freedom on his behalf. About every other night I have to lay him down, but he is actually going into his room and tucking himself in! Even when I do lay him down we used to have to fight and usually cry ourselves to sleep, but now he is staying in bed like a big boy. James has also recently rediscovered the potty. He wants to go and sit down on the toilet 3 or 4 times a day, no deposits yet, but lets give the kid a break!

Almost 2 weeks old!

Logan is almost two weeks old! I don't know how that could have gone by so fast, but it seems like he has grown too much! On Friday, the 5th, he was 7.6 lbs and on Wednesday, the 10th, he was 8.3 lbs. That means it was probably a pound of weight gain in a week! Logan has been sleeping in 2 hour stints all night and much longer during the daytime hours. He keeps me busy, but at least he has stopped spitting up with every meal. I still way over produce for one child, so he is on the verge of drowning with every meal, but we seem to keep things in check pretty well. James seems to really adore having a little one around the house. He gives him kisses and wants to hold him all the time. I have caught him 3 times carrying him, that was scary! This was taken right after he pooped on me!!! I had just gotten out of the shower and he aimed and scored!
And we can't forget about the first born in the wilderness of my youth...James has been loving life on the Island! He spends most of his time with Papa, my dad, and the dog working outside. I am sure its a dream come true for any boy to play outside with grandpa and a dog!

James and Papa raking the grass in the orchard. (The shorts and goloshes are a good look, don't you think!)

Isn't it sweet that they both have their own wheel borrows!

Logan McKay Kincaid

Hey everyone, guess what? We are home! Last night we got home and took it easy, just the 3 of us (James is with my parents). Logan was born on the 3rd at 7:17 pm weighing in at 7.11 and 20 3/4 inches. He is a healthy happy baby boy. We have our first appointment today because we didn't stay the full 24 hours to make sure he isn't jaundice. Logan has been a great eater and a fantastic sleeper...slept from 10:30 -2:00 and then from 2:30 - 8:00. I kind of woke him up at the 2:00 feeding, but he was making noise and I couldn't help myself. Logan and daddy just minutes after he was born.
Logan Thursday afternoon napping.
Just before bedtime Wednesday night.
Logan's first bath! Didn't like it much, but Curtis says he gets that from him.

So a brief play by play...we checked in for our scheduled inducing at 8:00 Wednesday morning and got the antibiotics and pitocin going and then waited. I felt a few contractions, but nothing to write home about so I was convinced that they were going to send me home since I wasn't progressing past my 3 cm, but at 4:30 Dr. Andrews came in and broke my water and from there things got messy! I started feeling my contractions and by 6:30 I was in full labor. About 15 minutes before he was born they checked me and I was still only at a 5 and I was asking if there was something I could have between an epidural and nothing...they laughed and said I could do it! I pushed 3 times and out came Logan McKay in all his birthday glory!

Pot Roast Success

Yesterday I started my pot roast at 9:00 in the morning and about 10:00 that night the meat was falling apart! I have never had it fall off apart before, and when I started getting excited about it Curtis just made fun of me like he didn't know it was supposed to fall apart. It is one of my favorite meals and I have been attempting it about once a month since we've been married and I finally got it right. It was 10:00 at night so we didn't try it, so it could be gross, but we will find out about 6:00 tonight! Just thought yall should know I got it right, I think!
