Logan is 7!!!!!!!!!!
Wow, it really doesn't seem like it has been that long. I remember Logan was due April 17th. SO when labor wasn't progressing at all on the 28th, my doc scheduled me to be induced on the 30th. I did not sleep a wink that night. Knowing my life was about to change forever. I remember driving to the hospital. It was early in the morning, about 5am. It was sunny. I remember getting all hooked up to the IV's and everything. They had to give me penicillin, little did I know or they know I was allergic. (Now mind you the nurse had just got done showing your dad all the buttons to push in case of a emergency.) My eyes rolled back in my head and I started having seizures. Freaked your dad out!!!! The nurse said "push the button!" and your dad just handed her the tv remote, the nurse call, and the phone and said you do it. Then at 10:30 am the doc came in and said labor wasn't progressing at all and I could try for another 3 hours or so, and have an emergency C section with no drugs, or I could have a c section now. SO I opted for the C section with drugs.
I remember the first time I saw you. You were beautiful. Yes I said beautiful, it is okay for boys to be beautiful when their mother is talking about them. You were so furry. I loved that. I remember taking you home. Your dad and I were totally in awe. You have always had such a special spirit about you. I wasn't a member of the church when you were born, but I remember the way I felt when I held you. I don't even think I have ever told the Wortons this, but I was showing them houses about two maybe 3 weeks after you were born. I was waiting for them to get there and the song "fingerprints of God" was playing. (It says I can see the fingerprints of God, when I look at you, oh I know it's true, your a masterpiece that all creation quietly applauds, you are covered with the fingerprints of God) For the first time I realized you came straight from Heaven. I always new I was suppose to believe it, but I never new it. It was at that moment that I KNEW you came to me from Heaven, and that you were a creation from your Heavenly Father. I truly believe that you were sent to this family to help your mommy see that she needed the gospel in her life. That is something I am so thankful for, and it will always be a special bond that we share. Even though you weren't old enough to talk, you helped me feel the spirit and you spoke to my heart and brought me to the gospel. I love you and I am proud to be your mommy. I love coming to class and hearing people say "logans mommy". I love seeing your smiling face when you know you are choosing the right. I love how you bravely bear your testimony when you feel the spirit. I love how you watch out for your little brothers, and sister. I love your helpful attitude, and most of all I just love YOU!!!! I know you are going to be a successful young man, and a great missionary. I am so excited that I get to be part of your journey. I am so proud of you!!!
