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.

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.

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.

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)

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.

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)

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.

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.

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:)
