Hey everybody,

Logan Bennett Thurman was born today in Arcadia, CA at 4:18pm PST.
He was 7 pounds and 20 inches long and perfect. It was a great delivery — quick and no complications. God has answered our prayers for a wonderful birth experience. Want to see more photos? Click here.

So, Logan was not born on Tuesday the 15th like we had hoped. I guess he’s just too comfy inside my belly. He’s got to be running out of room! Maybe he will be born today. Then we would have a Christmas Eve baby and a St. Patrick’s Day baby. I’m not holding my breath though.

March 037.jpg I’ve been doing all sorts of things hoping to induce labor. My web research led me to an eggplant parmesan recipe that was supposed to start labor. I’ve had it for dinner two nights in a row with no luck. But, it is really good if anyone is looking for a new recipe! My research also led to a restaurant called Caioti Pizza. They have a salad that will supposedly start labor. My mom, Connor, and I headed there for lunch on Monday afternoon. Obviously, it didn’t work, but it sure was tasty! I’ve also been taking evening primrose oil, drinking red raspberry leaf tea, walking, swinging and doing just about everything else I’ve ever heard of that should start labor. No luck so far.

I guess I just have to resign to the fact that Logan is going to come when he is good and ready. Until then, I’ll just enjoy spring break with my mom, enjoy lots of shopping, and enjoy my last few nights of sleep!

March 001.jpgWhat else is new. I’ve been contracting a lot lately, but not for real. That’s ok by me though. I really want to see Bebo tomorrow and go to our baby showers this weekend and go out with some friends on Friday night. Plus, I want Logan to wait for Mamaw to get here before he’s born. I’m thinking that March 15 is a good day for him to be born. His middle name would be taken care of and the nice nurse I met Sunday is working. So, I’ve decided March 15 is the big day-do you hear that, Logan?

this is just a test posting to make sure that post can be made. I am also trying to test the image resize function since I finally got image::magick installed. I am now trying to do some sort of layout stuff with the html. If it is simple enough then Megan can do it and won’t complain about the really hard website design. I don’t know if I can come up with anything else that I can write here. It needs to be a lot in order to make it to the bottom of the image I have embedded. The image will also pop-up the larger version of itself
