Blessing Day

We blessed Porter today in Grammy and Poppy's ward in Kentucky.  We forgot to bring his blessing outfit, so Saturday night I went to Walmart and Kmart to find something that would work.  This is the outfit we came up with.  

We're visiting Grammy

Porter has been very colicky.  I've cut out milk, chocolate, broccoli, and apples.  It helped a little, but not completely.  While we've been here, I decided to try giving him strictly formula (Gerber Sensitive)  and won't you know it, he's doing so much better.  I'm so conflicted, because of course I'm so happy he's not crying all the time and in stomach pain, but I'm so sad that I'm not nursing.  For the first few days I would tear up every time I'd feed him a bottle.  I'm pumping and dumping, so I don't lose my milk.  I'm not sure if, when, or how I'll start nursing again, but I want to know that it's an option.  Maybe when his tummy is a little more mature I'll try again or even do half and half in a month or so.

Since he's been on formula for five days, Porter looks so much bigger, chubbier, happier.  He looks amazing.

We are having a lot of fun here.  It's always wonderful to spend time with family and friends.

16 days old

My Fat Boy

I have to start this entry with "I knew it, I knew Porter was going to be huge" I still believe I went three weeks over and I believe Porter being 10lbs. 2oz. proves it:)

That being said, check him out.  He was fat.  He's not so much now but I'm working on it.  He lost almost a pound and in about 10minutes we're headed to the doctors to weight him.  I'm really hoping he's over 10 lbs. again.

soccer season is under way

Sad new: Jackson's hockey has been cancelled due to not enough players signing up:( and I'm going to hold off on signing Makayla up for anything.  So for right now I only have to juggle Isaac's soccer, scouts, Makayla's activity days, and makayla and Isaac's piano (don't forget 3 kids with homework every night).  Which I think will be enough with a baby coming soon.

Makayla's birthday was a few weeks ago.  I'm finally sharing a few photos.  She got some fun gifts thanks grandma, grandpa, grammy, poppy, and amy, she love them all.

I'm sooooo out of my mind excited!

This is a picture from my kitchen into the formal dining room, soon to be HUGE  pantry/sewing room:)

This is a picture from the family room into the entry way/ formal living room, soon to be Jeremy's office:)

Yay, I'm getting my BIG pantry/sewing room and Jeremy's getting his much needed office.  So the two useless formal room will now becoming very functional and used daily:)  My husband wasn't sure about the pantry off the kitchen.  I'm so glad he let me convince him that I needed it.  What a great guy.

Jeremy and Jonathan Staiger worked from sun up to sun down and will work on it again on labor day (ironically)

Back to School

all the kids in their backpacks ready to head to the car

Jackson heading into his kindergarten class without mom

Mom spying on Jackson while he found his seat and got settled in;-)

Wow, if only our morning routine can go this smoothly the rest of the school year.  I really hounded the kids about the importance of having their own lunches, snacks, and backpacks pack the night before and having their clothes set out.  That way big old pregnant mom won't have to do everything and get upset in the morning.  Also with a new baby coming in two months they'll have to do everything themselves. I hope we can keep up the good routine all school year.

So I teared up a little and I'm sitting here wondering how Jackson is doing on his first day of Kinder.  I'm sure he's doing great and loving it.  He has an amazing teacher.  But it's so hard not to worry, because he's my baby.

I just signed Jackson up for inline hockey!  I'm so excited to see him play hockey in a real game.  Ice hockey only has games on Sunday so luckily we found this outdoor roller hockey league so he can still play!

Isaac starts up with soccer madness again with the Blackhawks.  We love his team!

Makayla thinks she wants to try ballet this year.  Why not we've tried soccer, gymnastics, run, cheer, and so maybe this will be her thing.  Here's no telling with her.

Pre-Birthday Birthday Party

Anna, Olivia, Makayla, Taytum, Lindsey @ Hawaiian Falls

We celebrated Makayla's birthday 2 weeks early so I could get it done before school starts and so we could use the rest of our Hawaiian Falls FREE BUDDIE PASSES!!!!!

I think the girls had a lot of fun.  I know Makayla did.  So in two weeks we'll have a small family party.  

girls trying to get warm, the water was FREEZING

Jackson and Dad were slide buddies all day

We let Isaac bring a friend was he won't bother the girls
Amy and Colton our only family in Texas came too

Projects projects project

I've been working on this wall forever.  Now that I'm feeling better I was able to convince Jeremy to help me.  Now we have to decide if we're going to lower the top rod?  It's pretty high.  We had to recruit the tallest friend we have to help get it up and I can't even space out the frames properly because it's so high.  And if you look closely you will notice our family picture is messed up.  The photo I ordered was too small and it's almost time for a new family photo.  So it just might stay that way for another couple months.


I know my mirrors are uneven and the walls by the shower need to be textured and painted, but I did it all by myself while Jeremy and Makayla have been gone.  So Jeremy will finish the rest when he gets back.  Also once we decided on a baby name I can make him a towel and label his own towel hook, lucky baby:)

Jeremy retiled the shower.  Isn't it beautiful.  Thanks to his two friends that helped him out (Jared and Ken, thank you)

boys will be boys

Again the Logsdon boys are naked.  They sure love being naked.

It was pretty hot the other day and since we don't have a pool, they decided to make one.  It was pretty cute, but I have to admit that I loath it when they turn on the water.  They love to flood the yard and make mud puddles and mud pies.  It's such a mess.

tornado simulator and superdad

Jackson loves tornadoes.  We went to the museum of nature and science had a HUGE tornado simulators.  So of course Jackson tried to build his own in the garage and made a BIG mess.  So Poppy and Jeremy set out to make all his dreams come true.

Beautiful Kayla

My camera is fixed!!!!!!!!!!!

Isaac warming up before his game on Friday night.

Makayla is this week's Mighty Mustang.

Jackson at the Isaac's soccer game.

Halftime entertainment at Isaac's game.

Jackson and Hockey

It's so hard to get a good photo of him on the ice.  The lighting is not great for photos.

Saturday at Jackson hockey class, they had their first scrimage.  It was soooo much fun to watch.  I really wish all hockey games weren't on Sunday.  I don't know if he'll ever get to be on a "real" hockey team.  We haven't broke the news to him yet.  We don't know how to tell him:(

I found his Stars jeresy at goodwill for $2.50 (regularly 50.00)  what's up bargain shoppers:)

Makayla's First 5K

Makayla has been in a "GIRLS ON THE RUN" club for the last 3 months.  I'm so proud of her for running twice a week and then in this race.  I'm so jealous Dad got to run with her.
