What I Did Today

I feel like writing a little something every day for a while. It might be a good way to help me get into the habit of writing on a regular basis. It's good for me. Anyway, not that anyone really cares what I did today since it was slightly boring, but today I did a little bit of everything and a little bit of nothing. I played with peppermint play dough with my son (thanks pinterest!!), he loves it!… until he throws it all over the floor, then I know he is done (I'm sure many mothers can relate). I took some photos, most of them were crap but it was fun and a good experience because I was trying things I've never tried before and am now excited to get better at a new found photography trick. Yes I know that everyone and their dog these days wants to be a photographer but can I just say "I absolutely LOVE it!" I haven't been this passionate about a hobby for a LONG TIME! I also worked on the barn animal quiet book page I am currently making, Boston has seen me working on it off and on for a long time now and can hardly stand having to wait for it to be done! He is such a cutie, he makes my days happy even if he is a stinker sometimes, loves getting into things he knows he's not supposed to, has started into the ultimate tantrum stage and recently learned how to have a "meltdown". And then I did some of the usual work stuff: laundry… dishes… picking up toys and everything else that has been pulled apart throughout my house by little hands… made dinner… considered making a pie, and then decided to save that part for tomorrow, and cleaned the bathrooms. ANYWAY, now that I've stated all the things I did that no one but me actually cares about, let me just finish by saying that I also did some nothing today, like watched mickey mouse clubhouse with Boston (including acting out the hot dog dance together), and played a little animal crossing, yep, the only video game that I've ever been addicted to… wait, scratch that, I forgot about lego batman and lego harry potter, haha. Well, now that the day is over, I can't quite decide if today was a productive day or not. I guess it was one of those "somewhere in the middle" sort of days. Tomorrow is a "pilates in the morning" day… that always makes the day seem more productive somehow. :) What do you do to feel productive? And what is your favorite way to get in your daily exercise?

So this is clearly a little late, but things get a little crazy when you first have a baby! 

Our cute little guy is finally here and he is as cute as can be and such a sweet boy. He is a happy little guy and is also perfectly healthy, which we are so happy about! As weird as it may sound to some people out there, I actually enjoyed the labor and delivery experience this time. He was born in the middle of the day which made for a happy, energetic atmosphere which was nice, I definitely prefer having a baby during the day! I swear we ended up in the same rooms this time around as we did with Cadence, both in the labor and delivery and also in the mom and baby rooms. It's great to be able to take our baby home! We are enjoying this new adventure!

My 6 month Picture

I know that some of you out there always want to see pregnancy pictures, I always think I look a little weird in them (I guess I need someone like Jenni who knows how to take REAL pregnancy pictures!). But here is one for those of you who like to see them anyway. This is my 6 month picture. I just hit the 7 month mark yesterday so it's a little "outdated". I guess I need to take another one!

Moving on

So I originally started this blog as a way to keep people updated on what was going on with our angel baby Cadence. I had a hard time keeping up with posts or wanting to move on to different posts for quite a while after she left. However, I think it's about time to do so now. It just makes sense to have this be a blog about "Logan & Sarah's life together" in general rather than saying "well it was about Cadence and since she's moved on to a better place now we'll never have need to update this blog again". So anyway... obviously Cadence is still in our hearts, she's probably always somewhere near, she'll always be a part of our family and could never be replaced, and someday we'll have her back, but for now, we have another little one to write about: Cadence's "coming soon" little brother, Boston. He is due on June 18th, loves to wiggle, currently weighs about 2 pounds and I can feel that he is getting bigger by the day! We are still in the process of transitioning the baby room from pink to blue but it's getting there! I've made him so many cute things already! I guess that's the bonus to not working a 50 to 60 hour a week job with this pregnancy! The incredibly lower stress level is also nice. I've made him several cute blankets (and hear from various people that there are several other cute blankets on the way), crocheted some baby washcloths, made him some crinkly ribbon toys, some "cloth diaper burp cloths" and even got EXTRA ambitious and made a diaper bag (which I must admit I'm pretty proud of!). Anyway, we are both really excited to have a little summer baby to take for walks in the stroller, as well as the plus that we won't have to worry as much about RSV for a few months. :)

Just A Thought

Just a thought:  Tomorrow would be Cadence's 5 month birthday. Everytime we come to another "would be milestone" I get the sinking feeling that I am missing out on my daughters life. Then I remember that that isn't really the case.

Obviously the only reason Cadence came to this earth when she did was to get a body. At least I can feel good knowing that I accomplished giving her the most perfect little body she could ask for. Aside from the fact that her brain cells had issues, the ultrasound technician said she had an absolutely perfect brain and all the thousands of tests said the same thing. So, someday, when we see her again, even her brain cells will be perfect (assuming that was even what was wrong in the first place).

With all that's been happening in the world lately and with everything that has been in the news, that "some day" is looking to be closer than I thought. I'm not sure if that is good or bad. Good that we will see our loved ones again, good that this seemingly endless wickedness really will come to an end, but not so good that there is even more unfathomable wickedness and devastating destruction to come! Do I really want to live to see that? I think so, the end result will be so glorious a thing to behold that all the bad leading up to it will seem like nothing. And best of all (aside from, let's not forget, seeing Christ!), I will see my Cadence again, at exactly the age she was when she left.

Pictures of Cadence

Right before Cadence was born

Cadences first hour of life


"Designer Sunglasses"

Here Come the Pictures

Okay, so we got the pictures and Logan made space on our computer for them, well hopefully. We even got an external hard drive, so we'll see. I think Cadence had more pictures in 46 days of life than most people do in 10 years! I don't think I'll put all of them on here because there are well over 1000 but I will pick the very best ones. :) Here it goes, hopefully it will work, I really don't want to have to do more junk with the hard drive and stuff...
