A little bit of everything!

  Carly and I at my baby shower! It was sooo much fun! Logan is one spoiled little boy!!!
 Loved the cake balls Hailey made!

 My mom and I made so much yummy food! My mom did such a wonderful job, she is wonderful!

 I was having fun making faces at the camera!
 Logan finally is here! this was taken the day he way born. I love this little boy so much!
 Grandma can't get enough of the little munchkin. We were blessed to be able to spend the first few weeks of Logan's life in Utah. We were able to spend so much time with family and friends!

 Michelle and Spencer and their kids came to visit! we went to olive garden, then they stayed and hung out for a couple hours!
 uncle Matt!
 Logan already thinks that he needs a cell phone! haha not for a couple years son!
 We have such good friends, Blake and Hailey came to see us off the night before we flew to Arkansas!
 So did Katie, we miss her! And all of our family so much!

 This is part of the new kitchen!
 We got the builder to buy us a fridge!
 Logan loves the bean bag! I can't believe how fast he changes! He is smiling a lot now, and is on the verge of laughing! I am so excited for that! He still wakes up twice in the night, wish he slept the entire night! Oh well one day it might happen. Logan is such an observant little boy. He watches Dane and I went we walk around the room. He loves to kick, and wave his arm all around the place! He is such a joy to us!
 We still can't tell what his hair is going to do. I still hope for blond hair. The doctor said that his eyes will be a dark blue! I have always wanted a blue eyed baby! but I would have taken anything!  Oh and don't worry I always have socks on my son, I was just clipping his toe nails. He was being so cute that I had to take his picture before I put them back on! I hate when babies don't have socks on and it's freezing outside!!
 This is our nice BIG walk-in closet! Its wonderful! We have a nice big tub, for my mom to use when she comes (I'm not a bath person). I love the two sinks, there is a lot of room for all my bathroom crap.
 This is the master bedroom, We love the trey ceiling!
 Here is the hall bathroom!
 Logans room, still trying to figure out what to do with it! Still no crib for him, he's still in the pack in play in our room!
 This is the guest bedroom/ Danes p90x/workout room!
 The doorway
 We have a nice gas fireplace, we are going to try and roast marshmallows on it sometime since their isn't glass in front of it!
 Logan on his bean bag!

 Oh did I mention how much I love this little boy!!!
 Daddy and logan, after work! Love my boys! Love my life, we are enjoying Arkansas! We have met a few new friends. The ward is HUGE and FULL of kids!! wow there are a lot of kids! Everyone is there like a half hour early just to get a seat, can you guess where we have been sitting!? That's right, right in the back haha! We are going to leave an hour early tomorrow, haha JK! But really, maybe.We still miss our families, and friends back home though! We are so excited that my mom, dad and Nate are coming out next month! And we can't wait for others hopefully to come out!

Well we made it to Arkansas! Dane started his new job at Walmart, working in product development! He likes it so far. Everything is very new with the department, so he is excited to start the real work and not be in meetings. I am at home right now, I will probably start looking for a part time job soon. Did I mention we bought a house! or at least we are in the process of buying a hose! But we moved in! It was finished last October, so it is brand new! There is three bedrooms, and two baths. We have a cute deck off of the kitchen, and a great size back yard! The neighborhood is very nice, and clean. There are a few members within walking distance. We have met a few new people, One couple invited us over to dinner last sunday. They are a fun little family. We hope to meet a lot more people soon! But so far we like it here. Logan is doing great, he is so sweet. But boy do you know when he wants his bottle or attention! He is a great baby though, and has done wonderfully to let me unpack the house! Ill post pictures soon!

And then there were three!!

Logan David Ehler is here! He was born on December 28,2011 at 9:54, at 6lb 8oz, 19 inches long. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect little boy! He came three weeks early, due to Catherine having really high blood pressure. Two weeks before Logan arrived, Catherine's blood pressure was really high at the doctors office. So she sent us over to labor and delivery to have it checked out. Well of course when we got there, it was already down, so after a few hours, and some lab work they sent us home. The next week appointment, same thing happened so they sent us back over to labor and delivery. I bet you can guess what happened, it went down. My doctor wanted to see me three days later (which ended up being Logan's birthday) We made the appointment for 9:30 in the morning. She also wanted me to get a blood pressure cuff and take over the Christmas break. Well I forgot the first two day, with it being Christmas eve and day in all. The 26th it went high, but then went back down. on the 27th I woke up and before I got out of bed it was already 144 over 90. So of course I called the doctors office like they said to if it got over 140 over 90. Well Tuesday my doctor isn't in the office, so directed me to the payson office, where the on call doctor was. well after telling a million people why I was calling (I HATE those stupid new doctor office things where you have to talk to 50 people before you get the one person you want to call) I finally got some girl, she asked what was wrong so I told her, my blood pressure was high, blah blah blah... well she didn't ask me how high it was. All she said was, well your doctor isn't in today (which I had already told here I knew) and that she would put in a "urgent" message for her to call me back in the morning. I was pretty upset (since I was told to call if it got that high) and told her I had an appointment first thing in the morning, so that wouldn't do much good. Her reply was, well I'll put it in and if the on call doctor's nurse thinks its important that you will hear back from her today. That really made me mad, but there wasn't much more I could do. So later that day mom and I had all these plans, but we opted out of those and went and rented a red box movie. We lounged around all day, and I worked on trying to finish Logan's blanket. I periodically would take my blood pressure and write it down. About four O'clock I noticed it going back up. By 5:50 is was up to 175 over 105. We decided to call the doctor back, even though we thought the office was closed. Turns out on Tuesday there is another on call doctor, that works a night clinic. This time they actually asked me how high it was, and I let them know all about my call in the morning. They frantically tried to get a hold of my doctor, and the doctor that I should have talked to in the morning, but they had no luck, so the "night" doctor told me that I needed to go to the hospital right away. Dane was off at six, so as soon as he walked in the door we left. We were kind of relieved when it was still high when we got there (that way we really didn't seem crazy). They drew blood for labs and put me on the monitor. Then in walked my doctor, she had been down stairs doing a c-section. She said that they were going to put my on a 24 hour watch for sure. But if my labs came back bad then they would induce me. We were really surprised, but really wanting that to happen! The labs came back and the preeclampsia
