I'll start where I left off...the plumbing situation. There is good and bad news to that. The bad news, the pipe was nowhere near where we spent all that time and energy digging and we didn't even need to rip the deck out, the pipe ended up being on the other side of the deck far enough away that we didn't have to do anything there either. The good news, our plumbing was fixed and the sewer line was replaced and project completed in about 3 hours. They came Monday morning and got the job done a day earlier...and they filled in the hole for us that we dug. Man, we could have dug 7 feet and not found the pipe. I'm glad we stopped when we did, in all fairness though, we were just digging where they told us too, they were just as baffled as we were about the discovery. :) Now we have a giant dirthill running the course of our backyard.
The top is the side we started digging on, the bottom picture is the where the pipe actually was.
This was just the beginning of a very eventful week. On Morgan's side, he had school or work every single day and then had something going every evening too. Monday we went to a friend's house for dinner, Tuesday he had Youth Baptisms, Wednesday he had Young Men's, Thursday he had a late night Physics Lab, and Friday night he had to setup for a big Merit Badge Fair, and Saturday he was at the Merit Badge Fair practically all day. Oh how I missed my husband. My week, was slightly different, I just ended up getting really sick on Tuesday morning, I still have the hacking cough to prove it. Mom's just never get the day off, so it was hard to get better especially with Morgan having to be gone so much. He helped out where he could at night and in the mornings when I was the sickest, but I sure missed my hubby this week. And then late last night the Primary President called to remind me that I had sharing time along with singing time today and we would be having another family visit (they had 12 kids, but only 7 were primary age--which was actually a huge blessing because they sang really well with the 3 kids from our primary that normally would have been there) Today we are just recovering from everything. I don't think we have anything big coming up for a while until Grandpa and Grandma Goodman fly out for Logan's Birthday in two weeks, but ya never know what will happen in crazy Oklahoma, we could get hit by a tsunami, or tornado, or earthquake, or well, basically any natural disaster. :) So, we'll keep you posted. And due to the crazy week, we don't have many pictures of Logan, but we do have a few...enjoy!

Logan grew out of a bundle of pajamas this week, so he got some new Spiderman pajamas.
And we had a fun time playing with hats.
Yes, we have fun with the Little Buddy.
This was The Buddy's Easter outfit that finally fits him. :)

The new recliner is soooooo comfy! The sofa is nice and big so me and Morgan can cuddle up and watch movies together. It's still a little stiff from being new and when I sit all the way back my feet don't touch the ground, it makes me feel like a little kid again, but it's very comfy. We go the ottoman last week, but I never took a very good picture of it.
"Here Mom, I'll help you clean up, I'll give them to you, and you put them away" :) Good thing he's cuter than anything in the whole world. He likes to mimic facial expressions now and his favorite is the kissy face and show me your tongue.It was actually very difficult to get him to copy me when I was holding the camera, he was too fascinated by the camera, but he finally caved in. He also loves to play with balls. We have our little beach ball, a big exercise ball, and lots of little bath time sports balls. (And somehow, I think I've mentioned that before)We like to play Bowling for The Buddy with the big ball. He likes it too, we roll it to him and it just about knocks him over and he thinks it's hilarious. Then he rams it with his head and chases after it. It keeps him entertained for almost a whole 15 minutes by himself (that might now sound like much, but trust me, that's a lot of time for a mom).There's not really a story behind those pictures, he's just cute. Sometimes, I give him crackers to munch on. He's our cracker smasher. He'll take one bite and then he just likes to squish and smash the crackers and make a big mess. This time though, he actually got more than half the cracker down (or on his face) before smashing the rest into the carpet. Good thing we didn't splurge on expensive carpet while we're here. :)Cell phones, credit cards, computers, our kids are learning all this technology at such a young age. Pretty soon I'll be asking him why the computer isn't working. He loves credit cards and stole this out of my wallet. I didn't think he could quite reach the top of the desk, but apparently he's grown.
Well, that's pretty much been our week, pretty low-key, but I took more pictures this week to make up for last week. Logan is teething again and is always covered in drool now, but he's been pretty happy still. He just likes to bite, and he bites hard, and anything or anyone.I know, I know, they all look pretty much the same, but he's just so darn cute I couldn't help myself.Oh yeah, I finally got the pictures up for last week's post too. Some of them didn't turn out too great, but at least we made up for it this week. Until next time.....

This has actually been quite the uneventful week, but I'm sure I can pull out some tidbits of excitement. Actually I think my next story happened sooner, but I'm just getting to it now. :) Since we needed to make room in the baby's room for another baby now, we decided it would be better to have the rocker/recliner in the living room, but with a sectional, there just wasn't enough room. So, we decided to sell the sectional and they don't have ksl.com here in Okie, so we used Craigslist.com and in about 2 hours the sectional was sold and the people were on their way to pick it up. It was great. So, we moved the futon in the living room for now. We headed to a furniture store and were able to find a really nice sofa for just about as much as we got for the sectional, so it worked out great. The sofa and recliner won't be here until next week though, so I'll have to post those pictures later.
We also decided that our spinning table wasn't the safest after several crashes, so we replaced that with a storage ottoman. (we've been selling a lot of furniture and shelves that have just been sitting in the garage) It serves a dual purpose, it's perfect for putting your feet up and it hides all of Logan's toys....and even Logan sometimes. :)
Let's see, what else is new this week? I got really sick with a cold or something on top of being pregnant, that wasn't too fun, but I'm starting to feel better and I'm moving out of the worst of the pregnancy sickness stage, and I really haven't been all that sick, just a little nauseous, but mostly just exhausted. Morgan has been studying really hard for his midterms that are coming up next week. I can't believe we're already halfway through this semester. Time is going by so fast here....which I'm glad for. We're enjoying the experience while we can, but we sure miss seeing the family all the time.
Since Logan likes to run around naked all the time after a bath, I decided it was just still too cold sometimes to have nothing, so we tried the robe again, he still doesn't fit his homemade one from my aunt, but we'll get him used to it. :)
(sorry, fuzzier than I thought, oh well)I think that's about it, until next time :)

I say "ish" on the dates because some of the videos that you about to behold happened more than just this past week, it's just taken me that long to get them all ready to go. I've got a lot of digital scrapbooking to sort through. :) Anyway, this week we have some great videos for you to check out. I'll save the pictures for last, because there really aren't very many, I was focusing on the videos this week, I know, excuses, excuses, but hopefully you'll all feel it was worth it. :)
The first video is from a couple weeks ago, I think you'll remember that Logan was posing for a Mentos commercial (not really, but he could) and we just happened to get this on film.
The next video is of Logan showing off his mad cruisin' skills. The last couple weeks he has really started to go. He pulls himself up onto everything and wants to be walking all the time.
Now that he likes to walk around so much, we better start getting him into soccer, tee hee. We're starting of small, well big actually, with a beach ball. He loves to kick things. We're still working on the baby sized soccer ball and I'm sure we'll have some video of that soon.
We're also working on using a regular cup. Every time he sees us drinking from one, he is fascinated and always wants the cup. So, just before bathtime we do a little practicing, sometimes it goes well, other times, not so well, this was actually a pretty good trial. :)
And finally, my back was getting so sore from stooping over to help him walk that I decided he needed an early birthday present and we got him a walker (no, not the old man walker) so that he could practice on his own. This video is his first try at it. He was doing pretty good, then he didn't really like it so much, so we're working on it with him. It's so fun to see him growing up and getting so excited about things. I can't wait until this summer when we can run around and chase him in the back yard.
I guess that's pretty much it for the videos for now, we hope you enjoyed them. There really was only one picture this week that really turned out very good.
Yep, Logan will be a Big Brother in September (around the 21st-ish). We're thrilled! We looked forever for a t-shirt that said big brother and finally found one at Babies R Us and the smallest size was 2T (Logan wears 12 months), I guess Oklahomans figure people don't really have babies that close together. Now, if it were Utah, we'd probably find a 9 month onesie that says, I'm the Big Brother. :) We figured this would be the easiest/fastest way to get the word out. Thanks moms and dads for keeping our secret for so long, but I just can't wait anymore. :)
