Our Family and The Start of Our Journey!

I am starting to blog again!!!
I know I have said that before, but this time I mean it. We just got to Oklahoma two weeks ago to start Aaron's pilot training! I am so proud of him; he has done a lot to get here.
I want to keep all of our loved ones in the loop of the happening here so I will be posting a lot more often. Posts to come very soon will be Tessa's first day skiing, our drive out here, our home (before and after unpacking) and more. So stay tooned!
First I want to start by posting pictures of our newest member. I am 2 months late, but better late than never. Right?

Logan was born on Dec. 28th at 5:28am. He was 6 lbs 11 oz and 19 in long. He came so fast that by the time we got to the hospital he was born 1 hour later. Which meant no epidural or pain meds:(  It HURT like crazy, but I am strangely very proud that I made it. I had wanted to go all natural, but didn't think I could. But I did, and even though it was painful (painful doesn't really explain it, don't know if you can explain it) I am glad it happened the way it did. I felt like I recovered so much more faster than I did with Tessa.
Enough with the labor and delivery details. Sorry.
We have loved having him here. And it feels like he has been apart of our family for forever. He has been such a great baby. He isn't super fussy, and is great at eating and sleeping. He is giving me at least 6 hours of sleep wakes up to eat and goes to sleep for another 4, eats and sleeps for about 2 to 3 hour more. Right now he is smiling at us, and giggled for the first time last Sunday. I love him and love being his mom.

Tessa has done great with becoming a big sister. She loves him so much and helps me so much. I was afraid that she would have some kind of resentment towards him. Or that she would digress in someway or another. But she has been fantastic! I love her so much! I can't believe she is so big. It brightens my day being with her.

I'm so LUCKY! These to kids and Aaron are my world! I love them so much and can't imagine what I would be doing with out them. Being a mom is my calling. It's what I love and what I live for!
