That Didn't Take Long

I think Joe has already gotten bored with us.

This morning his sweet Dad told him that he was looking less and less like an alien, so that's nice. I'm enjoying his jowels in this picture. Like a little uninterested bull dog!

He's Heeeeeere!

Joe Caleb Johnson
Born December 23rd at 10:55 am
7lbs. 7oz., 20"

Minutes old... Yes, we're sitting on the bathroom floor, it's a long story.
The lovely Amy (holding Joe) who has now delivered both the Johnson kids and McKayla standing behind her.
Having some hat difficulties on the ride home. He didn't seem to mind since he was asleep.

Hanging out with big sister Blythe who already adores him and wants to hold him all the time. We've been having trouble finding a hat that will stay on his head, but suspiciously this Tech hat keeps appearing even though it slides right off.

Thank you to everyone for your prayers during labor and Happy Birthday wishes for Joe!

Today is my due date and, as most of you know, I'm still pregnant. I went in for my appointment today and we are 100% sure that I will go into labor and have a baby, but I can't give you a lot of details outside of that. Baby Joe and the Lord Himself are the only ones who know when this kid is coming and neither of them are talking!

Here are some reasons I love the women of the birth center...
Two weeks ago, Becky and McKayla (Becky owns the birth center and McKayla is their office manager) told me I had the look about me and they thought I would have him anyday. So last week when I walked in still pregnant McKayla gave me a big hug and goes, "Well, we called that wrong!" McKayla is British and thus has the cool British accent that makes everything sound better. This week when I walked in, still pregnant mind you, she just goes, "What are you doing?"
Since it is D-day, Amy did the usual blood pressure, listened to Joe's heartbeat, and measured my belly and weight, but then also checked my cervix to see what, if anything, was going on. She then helped me back out of the chair and turned her back so I could get dressed and goes, "I'll give you a little privacy." Which made me laugh. This is the woman who delivered Blythe and just checked my cervix so me putting my jeans back on is one of the least intimate things we've done together. So I just replied, "Really Amy, at this point in our lives together, what's the point?" And we had a good giggle.

Thanks to everyone for the phone calls and emails checking up on me. Sorry, I'm being really bad about returning said sweet calls and emails cause I really don't have anything to report. Still pregnant, he's still kicking the tar out of me every chance he gets, and Caleb is still pretty jumpy anytime I call his name.

Happy Birthday, B!!

Yesterday Blythe turned 2! We had a little party at the house with pizza and a banana monkey cake. Mine didn't quite turn out like Martha Stewart's, but I have a feeling that is a common occurrence, so I'm not too upset about it.Blowing out the candles
