I'll miss you, my friend. The world has lost a good person.

Holding up her head
Working for a toy, reaching, and crossing midline (woo-hoo, 3 in 1)
And of course, that freaking adorable social smile!
Here he is cutting with scissors.
He is also standing on one foot and making amazing verbal progress (sometimes I am more excited about this than others...). He knows his ABCs and can count from 0 to 50, with a little help, and backwards from 20. He loves to sing and is even beginning to understand pitch and sing on key (Thank you, Music Makers!).

We had lots of fun afterward at a place called Clay's, which was a cool restaurant down the street from the courthouse. There was a giant playground full of kids, sandboxes and even horses and chickens. Although Logan had to be rescued from the horse paddock twice, he had so much fun!!! He had a great time all weekend with his uncles and Oma and Pappy. Myra was another story. Apparently she is not a fan of travelling. The drive to Houston wasn't too bad. We only had to stop once and she mostly slept. Logan played with his computer, read books and pointed out the sights for Mom. Pretty fun. In Houston, Myra was completely wild and wouldn't let anyone but me hold her. I think she was just overloaded with all of the strangeness and Mom is familiar. It did make for a challenging evening, however. The ride home was awful. She did sleep for the first hour, but then woke and no amount of cuddling, nursing, talking or singing could settle her down. Logan even tried singing to her, but no dice. To make it even better, Logan was starting to get tired and grumpy. Boy, was I glad to see our driveway at the end of that!!! Myra was still a little out of sorts last night and wouldn't even let Mitch hold her for long but she's been more like her usual happy self today.
Despite the minor inconveniences, I'm glad that I was able to go and celebrate with them. Welcome to the family, Lindsay!!

A new Deshazer tradition is born.

Mom and I got to spend Saturday shopping while the boys - including Logan - played at home. Even though Temple doesn't have much shopping to brag about, it was still fun! And really nice to got to the mall without constant reprimands Logan-ward.
So, by the end of the weekend, Logan wasn't just saying "Good job , mommy," but had expanded his repertoire to include "Good job, Oma!" and "Good job, Steven!"
Good job, Logan!

1. Logan - This was taken in my office at UT when I was Chief Resident. I took Logan to work with me that day and Mitch had come by for a visit. Logan was 2 months old.2. Myra - Donna took this one when everyone was here for the blessing. Myra was 3 weeks old.3. Logan - This one is his first Christmas morning. He was very excited, as you can see. He was almost 4 months old.

We try to be positive whenever he does something well, or helps out - like with the mowing. :-) We usually say, "Good job, Logan!" and he hears it often enough that he says it to himself whenever he accomplishes something. It's pretty funny to hear it, especially since half the time I have no idea what he did... Anyway, it was especially nice to hear it directed at me!

I was also way impressed by Aubrey's Ninja Turtle costumes. She made one for each of her three kids and one for her hubby. They were so awesome!! The shells all had different patterns, even. They were super cool!!!After Music Makers, we hit Colquitt Park for a picnic and some running around. Here are the kids on the rock wall.And Logan; monkeying around, as usual. After that we had some nap time, and I made a big 'ole pot of chili for our ward activity. We had dinner and trick or treating at church. We set up all of the classrooms as "houses" so that the kids could knock on doors and trick or treat. I thought it was really awesome to be able to have a nice, well-lit, car-free place to trick-or-treat. Logan got quite a haul! Everyone dressed up, which was also really fun!! We got a few pictures, although not as many as I'd have liked. The costumes were all so creative!
Here are the Cochrans, as a family of Superheroes. I think Hayley really was a superwoman, as she wore tights just 8 weeks after having her fourth baby, and looks great! You go, girl!
And here we are! Logan had soiled his shirt, so his costume is a little incomplete, but whatever. We all had a great time.
And of course, in true Jones family tradition, Logan breakfasted this morning on last night's candy. I didn't know Peeps required a fork...
Our little Jack-O-Lantern wishes you a "Happy Halloween!"
