It's a Boy!

For those of you who are not Facebook friends of mine.....the 5 of you who just happen to read my blog because you have exceptionally good taste in reading material, our daughter and son-in-law had a beautiful baby boy!  Life is good!

Logan Archer was born on May 19, 2015 at 9:03 a.m. and weighed 7 lbs. 15 oz. and was 20 3/4 inches long.  Of course, he is beautiful!
Only days old here.....
12 days old and wide awake!

As far as babies go, he is a good one!  In my humble expert opinion.  It is such a treat to have a baby here in town.  I usually fly in for a week or more after a grand baby is born and help out a little and the next time I see the baby he (because so far they have all been a "he") is three months old, and they change a lot in those months!  I will be able to see Logan grow day by day, or at least week by week.

 With every baby born into our family I am reminded of my own experiences.  Things are the same as they were and yet so different.  That first baby is one of life's biggest adjustments, your life is never the same!  It is infinitely better and even though there may be times you think it is worse....it isn't!  Even junior high school and  high school.  I listen to moms now and think how nice it would have been to have the Internet when my kids were babies.  It would have been great to read what other mothers were experiencing.  It would have been nice to know I was not alone in the world with a crying baby and it would have been a great place to steal ideas.  Mothers today have such a vast wealth of information at their finger tips.  Man, I would have been such a great Mom with all of that information and just think of the audience I could have had for my blog where I shared all of my child raising expertise.  The world could have been a very different place.  Yea....right.

In other news....you may have heard.... it rained in Houston and most of Texas this month....and forgot to stop.  Usually you can assume that all of my complaining about the weather is just a personal issue, not this time.  This time it was real.  We set a record for the rainiest month EVER in Texas.  Over 16 inches of rain fell in Sugar Land this month.  I'm not making this stuff up.  My weather obsession has gone from frustration to amazement.  We can tell little Logan that he was born in the rainiest month EVER in Texas.  That is something you put in the baby book.

A few years ago I noted the drought we were experiencing with some pictures of a "lake" I occasionally walk past.  I decided to check it out today to see the difference.  The pictures speak for themselves.  Yes, it has rained a lot and the drought is officially over.

The "lake" today, things are definitely lush, wet and green.
The same lake in May 2011

The same "lake" in September 2011
The sidewalk to......nowhere.  Underneath all that water is a tunnel to the other side....
Interesting month to say the least!  Hope you are dry wherever you are.
