37 weeks

Yesterday I went in for my 37 week appointment. Because I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes earlier in this pregnancy, my doctor wanted me to have an ultrasound to get an estimate on how big our little girl is. I was very much in support of that, one, because it is so fun to get to sneak a peak at her, and two, Joshua was a whopping 10 lbs 6 oz when he was born and I would prefer not to relive that natural delivery…

All things new

New school year, new job, and not so patiently awaiting a new baby…just a few things going on around the Johnson home these days. Recently, I decided to visit my blog, which I actually haven’t done in months, and as I scrolled through the stories and pictures, I became very sentimental about how quickly our children have changed and I was  sad that I had stopped documenting our little family life. So with all of the newness going on in our lives, naturally I thought it was the perfect time to start blogging again.

Thankful

Well, it is done! The family conference that was kind of taking over our  minds and lives is over and praise be to God-it was incredible!! It was so surreal to be at an event that started as an idea that Dan had over a year and a half ago and to then to actually be at the event with over 850 people from our archdiocese.  It was amazing to watch so many little details just fall into place, like the weather. It was supposed to thunderstorm Friday night and instead it was sunny.  Yep. We are blessed with a wonderful and supportive Archbishop and it was so great to him present the entire time. The conference team and volunteers did an awesome job and all of the prayers said for the weekend were definitely answered.

Belly Buds {vol. 2}

And we are back…promised you we would be! Last week was full of excitement! The Hahn family found out that they are having their first baby boy and the Johnsons are expecting their second little girl! So needless to say, the two families are already working up an arranged marriage between the two babies. Do you blame us? I m sure all of the “belly buds” pictures would be perfect for the rehearsal dinner slide show.

Belly Buds {volume 1}

Ana and I met our freshman year in college and then somehow ended up as roommates, sophomore year,  during our semester studying abroad in Austria. The first few weeks were pretty awkward because we barely knew one another, we were put on a quiet hall, which none of our other friends were on, and we were also trying to get used to life far away from home. And then one beautiful afternoon we decided to go on hike (which was actually more of a walk) on a mission to find a waterfall in the Austrian Alps.  By the time we returned from our little adventure I think it is safe to say we were best buds and inseparable after that. One other huge blessing from this friendship is that she was the one who introduced me this guy named Dan Johnson/ my future spouse. Now that’s an awesome friend.  We were in each other’s weddings and now we are both pregnant with our fourth babies, due within two weeks of one another. She writes a hilarious blog about her adventures in motherhood called Time Flies When You’re Having Babies. She is so real and honest in the way that she writes and if you have never read her blog before, please click on over, she is sure to make you smile!
