Logan is a whopping 4 1/2 months old! Time has passed so unbelievably fast it seems unreal. He just keeps getting bigger, and bigger, and bigger! At his 4 month appointment he weighed 16 lbs. and 9 oz. (77th %), was 27 in. long (96th %), and 44 cm. head circumference (90th %). Isn't that crazy?
My Big Guy and I reading before bedtime...
We truly have enjoyed every minute with Logan. Because of his developing personality, it is becoming harder and harder to drop him off at daycare in the morning, but making it easier to leave school at the end of the day (as if I needed more motivation!). Speaking of...Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday! Have a good one!

Honestly. How could I forget to put something ssoo important into my 2010 Preview list? As some of you know, I am a huge Nicholas Sparks fan. Are his books the best written books out there? Eh...no. Are they pretty predictable? Eh...yes. But, I love them! Well, one of my favorite Nicholas Sparks book is being made into a movie (or has been made since they are done filming-whatever). Dear John. Have I already said I love this book? I love the characters of John and Savannah. I love how the relationship develops between and John and his dad. I love the sacrifices made at the end of the book, but not necessarily how they are made.
The movie Dear John stars Channing Tatum from Step Up (hhhoootttt) as John, and Amanda Seyfried from HBO's Big Love as Savannah. Could the cast be any better? I think not! (I have my middle school girls so hooked I think I should make a profit!)
This is going to be a movie I can watch over, and over, and over again. I predict this movie to have the same success as The Notebook. (You heard it here folks!) But, watch the trailer and decide for youself...Enjoy!

January: Brian and I rang in 2009 together at home with a little secret. We had a first sonogram in January (exciting, exciting!), and I started the second semester at my new school.
February: Brian and I heard our secret's "official" heartbeat for the first time.
March: I celebrated my 26th birthday in California with Brian at his dad's house.
April: April marked half-way in the pregnancy! We had another sonogram and enjoyed seeing our little boy on the screen.
May: I finished my first year as a Jr. High teacher!
June: Brian and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary with a trip to KC and a couple nights at Chateau Avalon. The first night we stayed in the Lincoln room, and the second night in the Jesse James room. We had our first 3D sonogram and couldn't believe our eyes! What an amazing machine!
July: Brian and I were able to spend a couple of days with his brother's family when they were back in Kansas. I also had the "huge" honor of standing up with my friend Kara at her wedding. (If any of you were there, you will know what I mean by "huge". Poor Kara...she'll have to look at that all her life...!
August: I started my 2nd year as a Jr. High teacher in the Rock Creek district, and of course the most memorable event of 2009 was the birth of Mr. Logan. I don't think there are any words to describe that experience. I can't wait, but can, to experience it again!
September: Oh September...honestly, this month was a blur. Brian's dad and step-mom visited us at the end of the month.
October: Our little pumkin celebrated his first Halloween,
November: After 5 years at Walgreen's, Brian began a new job at Leiszler Oil Co.
December: Brian, Logan, and I celebrated our first Christmas together! Brian's dad and step-mom visited us, and Brian celebrated is 28th birthday.
