Now the update...

I can't believe February is almost over - Logan will be 3 months old in another couple of weeks now! He's just changing so much everyday, doing more than he did the day before. He's cooing and smiling regularly, focusing on faces and objects, holding his head up much better than before, batting at toys, and sleeping for longer during the night (for which I'm incredibly thankful!). He's getting close to outgrowing his 0-3 month clothing, and probably in a couple more weeks we'll be moving on to size 2 diapers. This kid is growing like a weed! And he's developing the greatest little personality :)

I haven't heard from Eric much lately, just a short phone call and an email or two. He's moved to a different base - it's smaller and he's much happier there. His mailing address is the same as before, so nothing changes there. The biggest difference is that he doesn't have the same access to internet and phones as he did before. At the place he is now, there's no internet in his room (only 4 computers with internet access) and there are only 2 phones for everyone to share, so I don't know how often we'll get to talk. I'll be sure to keep y'all updated though when I find out anything important or new. I don't know much about what he does out there - working in the aid station mostly, I think. But he's doing alright, and I'm still sending him nightly email updates with the pictures I took of Logan that day. It's not easy, but we're getting through it.

Other than that, all's well here. I'll try to get some more pictures of Logan uploaded to the web album in the next few days - goodness knows I've got plenty! But for now, it's bedtime. Goodnight all! :)

Picture now, update later...

I need to go feed Logan, but I thought this picture was too cute not to share it right away! I'll post more of an update tonight after he goes to bed ;)

I can't help but take pictures of him!

I just uploaded a bunch of pictures of Logan to a new web album (the other one was full up to its limit!) so y'all can see just how adorable he is :)

That's really all I have right now - he's fussing a little so I'm going to feed him and try to get him to bed... Goodnight all!

Eric and Logan

First of all, Eric emailed me this morning and said that he's finally made it to the base in Iraq (Loyalty) where he'll be for the duration of this deployment. So that's good. ;)

The next piece of news is about Logan - he had his 2-month check-up on Thursday so I now have his new stats! He is now 11 lbs 13 oz and 23 inches long. This means that since he was born (just over 9 weeks now) he's gained 3 lbs 14 oz and grown 2 1/2 inches! Both his height and weight put him in the 50th percentile, so there's nothing to worry about. He's growing fine, and right where he should be developmentally. He's smiling all the time now, tracking objects with his eyes, batting at toys, cooing and talking with us more often, still working on controlling his head and lifting it during tummy time, but other than that, he's a very happy and healthy little boy! :)

More new pictures :)

I've got more new pictures of my little dude! Check the WEB ALBUM if you want to see them (scroll to the bottom of the page - that's where the new ones are). Logan just cracks me up with all of his different facial expressions! He is just getting cuter everyday :)

Also, I heard from Eric today - he said he's doing alright, taking it easy. Something I thought I'd pass on to everyone... The post office has a new item that I find very beneficial. They've got a NEW FLAT RATE BOX specifically for mailing to APO/FPO addresses. It's larger than the regular flat rate box, and costs about $2 less to mail. If you're interested in sending Eric anything during this deployment, you can order them from the USPS Postal Store website (they're FREE) and they'll deliver them to you (for FREE). You can also get CUSTOMS FORMS, DELIVERY CONFIRMATION FORMS, and other items from their postal store for FREE. This is a very helpful service that I didn't know about until recently - it's not easy to get to the post office with a baby in tow. But anyways, that's all for now! Dinner time ;)

Eric called!

It's been a few days since I'd heard from him, but Eric just called. He's still waiting to move on to Iraq, and tomorrow he'll be doing some training... Other than that, he's eating well and spending time with his buddies playing cards, darts, and whatnot. He didn't have much to report but wanted me to let everyone know that he's doing alright. I gave Logan lots of hugs and kisses for him. :)

Our Superbowl Sunday

There weren't any big Superbowl parties or anything for us - we're a quiet people ;) But Logan and I spent a lot of time together today and I took some new pictures of him!

CLICK HERE to see new pictures!
(You'll have to scroll down the page to get to the newer ones.)

I can't believe how fast he's growing! My mom and I went to Babies R Us yesterday to get him some new clothes because he's outgrown all of his newborn things and some 0-3 month pieces. Logan's also right on track with his development - he's starting to smile AT us now (so exciting!) and when it's playtime, he's batting at his toys now (not quite at the grasping stage yet).

Anyways, Logan's fallen asleep so that's my cue to get to bed too. If I'm lucky, I'll get about 5 hours of sleep before he wakes up again ;) Goodnight all!
