My baby is 18 months....

Logan's 18 month birthday was yesterday. I think I was about 5 months pregnant in this picture. It is all "Twinkie"! I'm still trying to lose that extra weight. Well actually I shouldn't say trying because I haven't tried anything but wishful thinking. Wishing I would wake up the next morning and "Poof", I'm ten pounds lighter! ha ha

March 27, 2007. Exactly one week late. I was going to be induced Tuesday morning, but started having contractions Monday night at one of Alexia's basketball games. He was jammed so far in my pelvis that I had to have a c-section. The doctor said there was no way I would have been able to have him naturally. He was delivered at 1:31 in the afternoon.
I took this picture in our front yard in a really big basket. Isn't he adorable?! He was about 5 months old.
This picture was taken in August at a friends house. Isn't he just handsome?! He makes the silliest faces. Makes us laugh constantly and gives the best hugs and kisses. We noticed Friday that he had bitten through his pacifier. He is officially pacifier free!! I cut the tip off with scissors and gave it back to him. He would put it in his mouth and take it and then laugh at it. He thought that was pretty funny. He hasn't been sleeping through the night constantly yet, but I'm hoping since we are done with the binky that maybe he will start doing better. The only way he would sleep last night was laying on my chest. I'm going to miss those days when he is too big and doesn't want me anymore. Makes me sad thinking about it!
I celebrated Logan's 18 month birthday by meeting my sister--KID FREE-- in Amarillo to do some shopping. It was a much needed break and I loved every minute of it! We decided we are going to have to do it again before Christmas. We went to all of the young hip clothing stores and tried on whatever we wanted to. For anyone who knows me-I do not care for shopping, but I think I enjoyed it, without kids in tow!! Jose was a Trophy husband and took Ariel to her soccer game, soccer pictures and watched all three kids yesterday so I could have a day off! Thank you baby!

I am going to schedule Logan's picture this week and try out Portrait Innovations that everyone keeps raving about. I'll post some of those pictures when we get them made.

First Day of School Pictures

Alexia and Ariel before heading to the first day of school.

Alexia is a big 7th grader and Ariel is a big 2nd grader who thinks she is going on 20!!!!!!
Ariel had to have this shirt when we went school clothes shopping. She said it is her cowboy shirt. She is strange. She is also the one who likes tatoos, gothic colors, bones, and skulls. Please start praying for her now....and a little prayer for her parents too!
This picture is with her teacher. Mrs. Stephenson also attends our church. Ariel was very excited to have her for her teacher.

I know I am a little behind. It is only the second week of school, but I am exhausted already. Between taking Ariel to soccer practice and Alexia to Cross Country, I feel like a chicken with its head cut off. Actually, I can't wait for Logan to play football!!! Then, maybe I'll be the crazy chicken lady!!
We are going to my inlaws for the weekend to enjoy a small town Fiesta Night! Have a great weekend. Maybe I'll post pictures when we get back into town.
