This Past Weekend

What an amazing weekend we had! On Thursday we found out the gender of our first child, a boy. And to celebrate we went out to eat at Wingers (one of Pat's favorite restaurants). The proud mom and dad!

Then it was Ainsleigh's Birthday on the 12th! Turning one is a big deal! ;D She got some really cute presents and clothes!

Then on Saturday Morning, we hung out with the Johnsons. Mom and Colleen made Fudge, Caramel, Truffles, Rice Crispy Treats, and the oh so famous Nuts and Bolts (Its a sort of Chex Mix). While me, Patrick, Brad, and Steph played the Wii. We also took a family picture of Colleen and her family. To cute!

Then later that day we started setting up Grandma's Christmas Tree. Although we didn't get to finish we got the hard part over. The fluffing of the branches. If you look you can see my baby bump in one of the pictures ;D

We had a fantastic weekend, and to top it off. In 4 days Me and Patrick leave for Seattle! HOW EXCITING! I hope you all have a great Christmas too!

I know you all have been waiting with baited breath so here is William Kyle Johnson. Isn't he a cutie!!! Anyway, I know that these are quite rudimentary but you get the gist. We will be having more pictures coming up after the Holidays but here he is! This image is his profile his head is on the right section and his spine reaches out to the left.

This is his arm and hand, SOOO CUTE!

We are so happy and excited that we have a baby coming into our lives, we feel blessed and we appreciate the support that we are receiving from our family and friends. Thank you all for sharing this special time with us.

2 More Days!

How is it possible that two days can feel like a month? I am so excited for our ultra sound, that the days seem to pass so slow. I know that time hasn't actually slowed down, but you could have fooled me. Patrick and I have decied, that when we find out the gender we will celebrate with the purchasing of an outfit. YAAY! The next thing that we are going to purchase would be a stroller, then a crib. How crazy is that! I wont be posting until after the Ultrasound, so wish me luck!

Girls Night Out - Festival of Trees

I had a girls night out with a good friend, Ann. There were some amazing trees! Some of them are kinda blurry. The Festival of Trees is a Charity Event to promote the Primary Children's Hostpital. The Glass Tree was sold for $27,000! Most of the prices of the trees were around $2,000. The Gingerbread house was absolutely enormous! We had so much fun! Thanks Ann!

9 Days, but whos counting....

We have 9 more days before the ultrasound! I am sooo excited. I'm not sure what we are going to do to celebrate. Most likely, go and buy something gender specific! So far I have been really good. I haven't purchased anything for the baby yet. I told my self that there is no reason I should buy clothes or anything because we aren't sure of the gender. Seeing as I do want to be gender specific on a lot of things. Patrick is still convinced that we are having twins. (which I really doubt.) So he doesn't want to buy a stroller just incase there are two... :D HAHA. We have found a stroller that we both like and a crib and dresser set that we really like. I never thought that I would be in a baby store picking things out for my child. Danny wrote me the other day, he said: "I never thought this far ahead into my future when my sister would have a child." Before he was leaving (on his mission) I told him that there was a chance that we would have a baby before he got back. His initial reaction was, and I quote "EWWW!" I thought that was pretty funny. Now of course he is excited for us! Although he told me he refuses to change a diaper... we shall see.

I do have to admit, I bought a HUGE purse that is going to double as my Diaper Bag. Patrick refuses to hold a feminine diaper bag. I told him to get his own then :D I think he is going to get himself a back-back/diaper bag. By the way they do make Men Diaper bags, which I find hilarious, and Patrick finds practical. He says the men are always carrying it any way so get one that he wants. I say they are always under the stroller so why not get one I want. As you see we differ on this topic ;D So we are getting two. LOL. I mean who wouldn't want to have a Nine West Diaper Bag any way :D

So I'm starting to feel the baby move!!! Its quite amazing! I'll tell ya though its the weirdest feeling. I feels like a twitch or a very very very very soft punch to the gut! :D It kinda startles me. I'm not used to having somthing move inside me. Sometimes I will be working and it will kick and I will jump LOL. As of so far we have 15 days to go until we get an ultrasound, and get to find out the gender! And the week of Christmas I will be 20 weeks along, thats the half way mark for a pregnancy. It will be weird to think that is half over.

Also, December is probably the craziest month for our little family. Gloria's Birthday the 4th. We have our ultrasound on the 11th. Ainsleigh's Birthday the 12th. We leave for Washington on the 18th. Then we have Christmas (25th o'course). Then my Birthday on the 31st. Crazy crazy! Its gonna be fun! I am very excited that we get to go home to Washington for Christmas. We are almost spending two weeks there! Good stuff!

Hello Again

Yesterday I had my second doctors appointment. Everything went fantastic! First we did all the blood pressure and weight. My blood pressure was great and I had lost 2 lbs since my last doctors appointment. Then we went into the room and he came in and measured my belly. He said my measurements look good. Then he pulled out the Doppler thing to listen to the heart beat. He had a really hard time finding it. But there were these weird popping sounds. He said "Oh that's the baby kicking. " I started laughing. He finally found the heart beat on the left side of my belly. But he immediately lost it. He said well the baby is moving a lot its making it more difficult to find the heart beat. He kept looking and found it again closer to my belly button, but lost it again. As he was searching for the 3rd time the baby kicked and the Doppler turned off. It kinda reminded me of when you speak into a microphone and if a noise gets to loud it shuts off to prevent any damage to the receptors. It was like that. He turned it back on and kept trying to find the heart beat. The baby finally rested on my right side and we got to record the heart beat. It was awesome! Let me know if you want me to send it to any of you!

My next appointment is on December 11th. This is when we are going to get an Ultrasound and also get to find out the gender! I have a count down going in my cubical at work. Currently 27 days away. I will be 18 weeks along when we do the Ultrasound. YAAY! I will finally get a picture of my baby! I will definatly be posting it!

First Post

Hello everyone, I wanted to use this post to bring you up to date on things that are happening in our lives and how we got where we are now.

Me and Patrick met in Covington, Washington through a friend (Crystal). We became friends instantly. He was over at my house almost every day. Not just for me, my mothers cooking :D. We didn't start dating until I turned 19. We were married on July 8th 2006, we moved to Utah right after we were married. We have been living here in Utah for 2 years. We also recently found out that I am pregnant. I am currently 12 weeks pregnant, and I'm due May 14th 2009. We are both very excited about this new addition to our family!

I am planning on posting every week that I can to keep this as up to date as possible. Not a lot of things happen during each week. But I will keep it as up to date as possible.
