Catch Up Time

Sorry I've been MIA for a while!
I know I'm pretty good about keeping up with my blog, but lately with the holidays and Nick's deployment coming up, things in our lives have been crazy hectic!
So to start, here's an update on our family...

On December 7, one of my bestest friends, Kim went into LABOR!
I was soooo honored to have been asked to be in the delivery room with her mom and her older sister.
Kim's husband, Sunny is currently deployed to Afghanistan with 2/4 and unfortunately couldn't be home for the birth of their 3rd son!
She was scheduled to be induced on December 12, but babies are so unpredictable!
She found out on Wednesday that they were going to induce her THAT DAY!
I was so excited, I drove like a maniac to make it to the hospital on time!
I can't even imagine what a fathers go through when they get the unexpected news....
My heart was racing and my mind was all over the place....
"We're going to have a baby!"
The coolest thing was Sunny's timing in calling Kim on her cell phone RIGHT as she was about to start pushing.
It's like the stars lined up and God was really looking out for Kim
Sunny got to hear the ENTIRE birth (complete with play by play) on the phone all the way from Afghanistan!
Let me tell you, experiencing a birth from the other end was the most amazing thing I have ever been a part of!
It was absolutely beautiful, and it made me appreciate being a woman even more than I already do!
I just couldn't believe what our bodies were capable of, and I couldn't imagine that I had just done that 2 1/2 short years ago!
So in the early evening of December 7, 2011, Logan Joseph was born weighing in at an astonishing 9lbs and 9 ozs and measured 20 1/2 inches long!

He is absolutely the most beautiful baby!
 Thank you, Kim for letting me be a part of Logan's entrance to the world! It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life!
So in the recent months, I've been in total denial about needing glasses.
I kept giving myself excuses like "Oh, I'm just really tired so my vision is blurry."
Recently, I started experiencing serious eye strain when trying to see things far away and mild headaches from straining to see so hard. 
I finally got a wake up call at work when I realized everyone that I worked with could read this sign on the wall at the other end of the room and I couldn't even make out a single letter. 
So I caved in and made an appointment at Lenscrafters and found out I am nearsighted and have slight astigmatism.
So here I am with my new Tiffany & Co. spectacles :-)

I was certain that Dannika would cry this year when we went to go get pictures with Santa.
We all remember her Easter Bunny pics...

So the past few weeks, I've been "preparing" her for Santa.
I showed her lots of pictures of him, and everytime we went to the mall, I'd tell her to wave to Santa.
I was certain that all this "preparing" wouldn't work, but it was worth a shot!

She was a little shy, but warmed up to him quickly. 

Hope everyone is doing swell!
Until next time!!!
