logan peter wessler


logan peter wessler
 arrived monday, july 13, 2009
at 5:51 pm
7 pounds 5 ounces 21 1/4 inches
arriving at our labor room sunday evening to start the induction process. they gave me something that night to try and prepare/encourage my body for labor. they also gave me some medicine to help me sleep in preparation for the big day.

we couldn't resist taking a picture in the sexy gown...with a sexy 9 month pregnant body (yea right)!

after having some minor contractions throughout the night they kicked them into high gear in the morning with some pitocin. i labored through some pretty tough contractions until i got my epidural. let me just say, it was HEAVEN! i am all about the drugs! dave entertained me throughout the day, including rolling around the room "dancing" on a rolling chair.

  
i pushed for about an hour and 45 minutes before greeting our little guy. 
our first picture. neither of us are really looking our best, but let's be honest, being born isn't easy! talk about a miracle!
 
7 pounds 5 ounces. we had actually thought he would be in the 6 pound range but he surprised us
 
 
proud dad
 
i just have to brag that dave is THE BEST dad. he has mastered diaper changes (score for me), is amazing at swaddling logan like a little burrito and couldn't be more loving. i knew he would be, but it sure is fun to see it all in action.
  
logan's first set of headphones!

 

   
heading home. our first family picture.

 
there has been no shortage of love for logan

meeting half of his cousins

wessler and todd family love
  4 generation of wessler men
we finally had a breakthrough with feeding yesterday which has made a world of difference. we are all much happier and less discouraged! 

we could definitely use a little more of this though...
 
we are so in love and can hardly believe it has been less than a week since logan's arrival. i will be better at posting. i can't believe it took me almost a week to get this up.

Congratulations!! Amen on drugs. And Logan looks EXACTLY like his dad. Can you see it? I can't see it in my own kids, so I had to tell you because I can see it in Logan and Dave. I'm so happy for you. I can't believe you posted already, but I completely understand time flying by. Welcome to the world of good intentions.

Kristen said...

Welcome little Logan! We're so glad you're FINALLY here! Can't wait to meet you in person...

I agree with Christine, he looks so much like Dave. and I will agree with you that you look very hot in the hospital gown!! Thanks for getting some pictures up there.

Dana said...

Logan is just beautiful - congrats. I am glad everything went well and I can't wait to meet this little boy!!!

Amy said...

I've been checking every day!!! So glad he's here and healthy and doing so well. I hope YOU'RE doing well too. I like the name Logan and he looks like Dave's little clone - from the ears to the eyes to the nose. Wow, those Wessler genes come through strong! He's a little cutie. Remember that to keep him eligible for Little Megan someday! :) The pictures are all really good. You must have a nice camera. Oh, I'm so happy for you guys and hope all is going well. Did you get my phone message?

Oh, I never thought I'd read the words "sexy" and "hospital gown" in the same sentence. You know how to work that gown, though, girl!

Sara said...

Seth Jenson said...

Good luck with the feeding and the sleeping. Glad that Dave is doing a good job being a Dad. I would expect no less.

Congrats! Hopefully you don't have google analytics.. and can see how many times this week I have checked for a post on this cute new baby! Can't wait to meet him.

Domestic Goddess said...

I'm so excited for you. Congrats on your new family member. He is so adorable but you already know that. Get rest when you can and forget about the things you "should" be doing and just sleep.

Maegan said...

Congrats, I also have been checking all the time for pics. You do look hot in the gown. He is a cutie. Hope the feeding keeps going well.
