It's Go Time, Finally!

I have never been more excited to see my period then I was today, even in the middle of the night with bad cramps.  That's how happy I am!  This means we have waited two cycles since our miscarriage and the doctor has given us the go ahead to try for Baby this cycle.  I am trying very hard to keep my emotions in check and to remember that it might not happen this cycle.  I remind myself everyday that God's timing is perfect and he has something great in store for us, even if we can't see it at the time.

If my cycle cooperates, we will know by Christmas!!!  How amazing would that be to find out if we have been blessed with a sweet baby Chistmas morning!  I've already told Santa that's all that is on my Christmas list.  I'm pretty sure there is nothing we want more. 

Say an extra prayer for us! 

He's Here!

Our Elf, Chippey, decided to show up Thanksgiving morning and boy was Logan surprised!  It took him a few minutes to realize what was going on.  We let him know earlier in the week that Chippey would be coming soon, but we explained that we didn't know quite when he would show up. 
I love that a we are trying to get Logan to see what is in the dining room, he finally sees the "Merry Christmas" sign that Chippey left and he says, "Oh Fooey!".  I thought that was so cute! 

We had a fun morning coloring, eating donuts and drinking hot chocolate.  I think Logan asked me to read him the Elf on the Shelf book about 12 times! 

I love watching his eyes light up and his expressions as he gets swept up in the magic of Christmas and believing.

Pick a Word, Any Word!

I feel pretty confident that all of our letter and spelling practice is paying off.  This boy has letter recognition mastered!  I can pretty much show him any word and he can spell the whole thing!  He's so into spelling, he is almost always spelling something he sees.  It makes for very chatty car rides and shopping trips.  This makes me one happy mommy! 

We are still working hard on sight words.  I think he knows about 40!  Maybe this will help shape him into a super reader and speller. 

*It's so cool to me that he self corrects, too.  He realizes he makes a mistake and corrects it on his own.  (A reading teachers dream!)  Go Logan, Go Logan!!

Buzz! Ouch!

Baby boy got his first bee sting (or two) the other day while riding his tricycle outside.  I was at work, and got a text from Mimi that Logan got stung. She gave him Benadryl and Advil and besides hurting  and being upset he was okay. I was worried, since my dad has a very bad allergic reaction to bees.
When I got to him, it was still red, but not too swollen. I put Logan in the car around 4:05, and he went right to sleep. The Benadryl must have kicked in because he didn't wake up until 5:45 the next morning!! 
I am so sad that he got stung, but very thankful his reaction wasn't too bad. Hopefully, he gets back on that tricycle!
