First trip to the zoo and a very special visit!

Well, it appears that I must accept being perpetually late for everything, at least for the time being. My house seems always in disarray, the dishes are seldom done before Kyle gets home (except on days when Keith and my Mom stop by and do them), and I certainly have not been able to keep this blog up to date. I suppose that is the typical life of a new mom. Or perhaps I am just not as organized as I thought I was. Regardless, I will not apologize for being behind on posts, but rather I will celebrate each time I am able to sit down and write a few words to go with my plethora of photos. So, I raise my coffee mug and toast the few minutes I have to share these photos with you.

These photos are from the first weekend in March. That's right, March. My mom's best friend -- and the person I lovingly refer to as my Aunt Jenny -- came to visit us for a long weekend. We ventured out a few times, but mostly stayed at the house just enjoying our time together.

I want to take a moment to mention how fabulous Kyle is. Not only does he come home to a mess of a house and doesn't say a word about it, he cooks dinner after a 9 hour work day and often does the dishes, laundry and whatever else needs doing. I am truly lucky to have such a wonderful man. He is also a fantastic daddy. One thing Kyle and Logan do together is bath time. It is their special bonding time. This photo was taken right after a bath.

Aunt Jenny brought Logan a special friend, which he snuggles with each time we put him in his crib for some play time. He doesn't sleep in his crib yet since he seems to hate being flat on his back (we assume due to gas and reflux), but we do try to play with him in it so he can associate it with happy times.

Our major outing for the weekend was to the Rio Grande Zoo. Kyle and I love visiting zoos. When we go on vacation, we often find our way to the local zoo and we both feel that the Rio Grande zoo is one of the best zoos we have been to. We have already been to the zoo about 4 times this year and I'm sure Logan will spend lots of his youth there.

For his first visit, Logan pretty much slept through the entire trip.

When I was growing up, Aunt Jenny always gave me books. It was her special gift to me. In fact my mom kept those books and now I read them to Logan. Each book came with a special note to me and they are dear to my heart. When we had our baby shower for Logan, Aunt Jenny sent many books with special notes to him too. Well, I'm happy to say that Aunt Jenny was the first to read a book to Logan. It seemed fitting.

I just love this photo of Keith and Logan so I had to share it.

  1. I'm glad you have Kyle to help! I don't know how I'd do it without John either...thank goodness for great husbands/fathers! :) Logan's such a cutie pie, I can't wait to see more pics and see how big he is now! But, don't be so hard on yourself...enjoying motherhood and your time with Logan while he is young is the most important thing you can be doing! :)
