Just hanging out

This week, Steve returned to work from his paternity leave. :( None of us were looking forward to this, but his day back wasn't horrible. It could have been better, but it wasn't horrible. We were concerned how Page would react to his returning to work since he hadn't been to work since before Christmas and before Logen was born. She did great, though. When Steve left for work, Page turned to me and said the cutest thing, "Well, Mom... it looks like it's just you and me today." LOL. Where does she get this stuff??? She did tell me she missed Daddy a couple times, but distraction techniques seemed to help.

Thankfully, this is Spring Break week in AZ for all the local schools so my daycare kids were gone. I figured getting Page out of the house might distract her from Steve not being there. So, we met up with Danielle and Ryder at Pump It Up and the let the two big kids play on the inflatable toys for a couple hours. We then enjoyed a nice lunch at Burger King.

We then returned home and took naps. Page took a SUPER long nap (3.5 hours) and was surprised when Steve brought home her favorite pizza for dinner. It ended up being an OK day.
Today has been going pretty well and tomorrow we plan to visit Steve at work for lunch and to introduce Logen to everyone. Let's hope this transition continues to be a smooth one.

Anyway, here's some pictures of Logen just hanging out the last couple days. I'd have pictures of Page, but she's been avoiding my camera, so.... I'll make sure she makes the next post!
Logen snuggling with his burp cloth while snuggling in my arms.
Logen napping in our bed.
Logen sleeping yet again. Clearly he does a lot of this! Hahaha
Logen thinking while sleeping!

What a big boy!! Logen sitting in his Bumbo chair for the first time. He's so happy.

Logen hits his 3 month on Sunday! I can't believe he's almost 3 months old. My baby boy is getting SO big!!!

Random Acts of Cuteness

Yes, I know I've been M.I.A lately, but we've been busy. We took our "Logen Tour" where the four of us (and Nudget) travelled back to IL to introduce Logen to all of his family. We have TONS of pictures, but way too many to put on here. They are all on FaceBook, though, so you can check them out there. I will add a couple of the highlights in this post (i.e. Logen meeting his grandparents and Godparents and Page's birthday). When we got back, we jumped right back into the daycare and that has been keeping us busy. Steve goes back to work full time on Monday, so we've been trying to get in as much family time as possible. Also, I have been busy planning a baby shower for my awesome best friend, Danielle, that is this Sunday. Hopefully after the shower and next week (Spring Break for my daycare kids' parents) I'll have some more time to stay on top of blogging a little more. So, here's what you've been waiting for... Some random acts of cuteness!
Page on the swings at the park with Daycare Logan, or as we call him, Lolo. (We needed to call him something to distinguish the two Logan/Logens). Sadly, this won't be an issue too much longer as daycare Logan and his family will be moving back to Michigan this summer. :(
Last week we ventured out of the house when Steve had to go to work for a meeting and one of the daycare kids was sick. We went to the park with Danielle and Ryder. Now, they have clearly met Logen MANY times, but I never got a picture of Danielle and Logen (Ironically - I had one of Derrik and Logen... but not Danielle).
Logen wearing a new shirt. When Page saw him in, she said... "Logen matches Papa!" LOL I guess Logen's shirt reminded Page of Papa's farm shirts!
After we returned from our trip home, we waited a couple days (Logen had a bit of a cold) but then Logen had another big milestone. He now sleeps in his crib in his own room!! Just last night he slept for 8 hours straight! YAY!!!!
Logen at 2 months - weighed in at 15lbs 10 oz and 25 inches long. Yes, that is a very big baby. He doesn't seem that chunky. The doctor said he is directly proportionate... he is just the average size of a 5 month old! LOL. Our future linebacker!

Page all dressed up and ready to go play in the snow for the first time!!
Logen having a great time in the car!

Logen and his Aunt Vicki - his Godmother! Vicki has been my best friend in the world since the summer before our freshman year in High School when we met at band camp! Logen and his Uncle Tony - his Godfather. Uncle Tony is Steve's baby brother! As bad as this picture looks... Uncle Tony is just reaching for Logen's binky! It sure is humorous, though.Logen and his "Grandpa" Bruce, Uncle Gizmo (Bruce), and his Daddy - Logen Warren Hustedt was named after "Grandpa" Bruce Warren
Logen and his Great-Grandma (I wish I was able to put up a picture of Logen and Great-Grandpa, too. :( We miss you, Pa! You would have loved Logen!)
