Utah Vacation

On July 7th, Logan, Jeremy and I left for Utah to visit his family. This was going to be Logan's first plane trip. She did great on the trip there, she ate while we were taking off and then slept most of the trip. Jeremy held her while we landed and she did really good. We got off the plane and headed to get our bags. Larry and Twila were there to pick us up with a car seat all ready for her. They were able to borrow a bunch of baby stuff for Logan to use while we were there. Friday we went and ran some errands. My sister in law would be flying in Friday night as well, and joining us for the weekend. Friday night, Jeremy and I were able to go enjoy a movie, "Horrible Bosses" and left Logan with my in-laws. I was a little nervous, as that was her first time we had left her with anyone. We enjoyed the movie and headed home. Logan did great with her grandparents. I was so glad to hear that. Saturday morning we had the traditional big breakfast at the house (they normally do it on Sunday, but since they had other plans, we did it on Saturday) After breakfast, we headed to the picture place to have a family picture taken. We did a couple group shots and then had to take a break because Logan was being so fussy. I fed her and changed her and then we started taking more pictures. She was still quite a bit fussy, except for when I was holding her against my chest. After the family pics, we got some good pictures of Jeremy, Logan and I. Then Chris and Tirah took a picture together as well. We made an appointment to come back on Wednesday morning to look at the proofs and chose the prints they wanted. Saturday night all the family came over for dinner. We had kabobs, which were delicious! Sunday afternoon, Larry and Twila hosted a "Meet Logan Mason party" They wanted their friends and family to meet their first grandchild. Logan got to meet family and friends and she did really good. Sunday night, Kenny took Jeremy to the airport. Jeremy had to head back early because he had class on Monday and Wednesday and couldn't miss any of his classes. Logan and I would be staying until Thursday. On Monday, Twila, Logan and I headed to Carter to check out the cute clothes they have there. We don't have a Carter's here in OK...Yet, we are getting one soon. We picked out some clothes for her, Some were bigger for a few months from now. Tuesday we ended up going to Park City, this is where they held the Olympics in 2002 Winter Olympics. We went up one side of the mountain, going over Guradsman Pass, and then up to Park City and down the other side of the mountain. It was Logan's first trip to the mountains. She did really good. We stopped at an Italian restaurant in Park City and had lunch. I have been craving pizza, and since I can't eat cheese, this was a good opportunity to get a "Gourmet Pizza". I ordered pizza topped with olive oil, basil, tomatoes and artichokes. It was sooooo good! Wednesday morning we went to look at the pictures from Saturday and then had lunch. I then went and spent the rest of the afternoon with Tirah. It was really nice to have baby free time, plus Logan got to spend time with her Grandparents. Tirah and I enjoyed pedicures and manicures and then went to a few other places and just hung out. Thursday, Logan and I came back to Oklahoma. It was so nice to be back home. She was a little fussy for the plane ride coming home, but all in all she did good. We were in the very last seat of the plane in the back, but the seat next to us was empty. It was really loud back there, but nice to have the extra room.
Here are a few pictures from the trip

July 4th

Our 4th of July was very busy. We got up and got ready and headed to Aunt Sherry's families house for a BBQ. We went there last year and had a good time, so we thought we would go again. Plus, everyone wanted to see the baby. We had hamburgers, hot dogs and of course, Aunt Sherry made her oh so popular homemade ice cream. I couldn't have any because of not being able to have any dairy. Amber got to see/hold Logan for the first time. It was funny because she picked her up and wasn't expecting her to be 12lbs.
We stayed out there for a few hours. It was so hot. Logan got passed around and took a few naps, and did real good despite being in the heat.

Logan and Aunt Sherry
 After the BBQ, went ran a few errands, including going to Garden Ridge and then Home Depot. After that, we headed back to Yukon and had dinner at Primo's. Dinner wasn't very good, and Logan was being fussy. I had to hold her the entire time or else she would start crying. After dinner, we headed to Aunt Sherry's house for a bit before going to watch fireworks. I used this opportunity to feed her and then I was able to snap a few pictures of her in her cute little outfit.

This was the best picture
After she had her snack and got cooled off, we headed to Yukon park to watch the fireworks. We've been going there for the past few years. They have an awesome display and also have an orchestra playing music. It's so beautiful. I brought ear plugs for Logan in case the noise got to be too much for her, but she did very well. The fireworks didn't scare her. Oh, and she got to meet a few more members of her family - Madlyn and Catheryn (Jeremy's cousins)

Madlyn was happy because Logan didn't cry while she was holding her, but she did when Catheryn held her. We got home about 11:15 or so. I gave Logan her bath and then we went to bed. She slept good and didn't wake up until about 6:45 that morning. She was so exhausted, that she slept most of the day the following day! Can't wait to do it again next year!

Exciting news

Just wanted to share with everyone that Jeremy was accepted to Law school and will start in August. He will be getting his JD/MBA. He is currently doing pre-reqs for his MBA program now. He should be done with school in about 3 years. The best part about this, is he will be staying home with Logan during the day. We are excited that we won't have to put her in daycare!!!

Tired of waiting

So earlier this week, at my 39 week doctor appointment, my BP was a little high. The doctor said that I needed to take off work until I had the baby and pretty much be on bed rest. Do nothing - only shower, get a drink or snack and go to the bathroom! That is it! She also said because of my BP she didn't want me going much past my due date, thus I was going to be induced on Monday. She checked my and I had not made any progress at all - NONE! No change from 2 weeks ago. I was not happy. Before I left, she gave me instructions about the induction procedure. I basically will go in to the hospital on Sunday night at 11:45 and they will give me something to make my cervix thin and then start the induction on Monday morning. So, that means, I should have a little tiny baby by Monday! I'm kind of bummed because I didn't want to be induced, but nothing is happening and this baby is content being in my belly. I keep telling her it's not so bad on the outside world!
I've been doing anything and everything this week to help things progress, and no luck. Here it is Saturday and it looks like I will be induced tomorrow night :-( I just hope that everything goes well and she makes her debut soon!

Clean House

This past week, Jeremy was on vacation. I told him a few weeks ago that I wanted to get our house cleaned and ready for Logan. He did just that. He did everything from cleaning out the garage, all the bedrooms, living room and dining room. He even steam cleaned the carpets! Let's just say, our house got spring cleaned and it is really nice!!! It was a big help for me, since I am close to giving birth and it gets really uncomfortable trying to bend down or move all around.
So happy to have a clean house, now all we need is for Logan to make her appearance!!
