So now that Knox is here we have been using GMD prefolds and thirsties covers on him but he is a pretty heavy wetter and seems to pee right through them really fast. He can fit in the Bumgenius 4.0s but I don't have enough pocket diapers to last both him and lexi for more than a day. So diaper shopping is needed, maybe that can be the majority of Knox's Christmas presents... Considering he is only 4 weeks and won't care about Christmas at all this year! Everett really wants an xbox 360 with kinect so he can play his cars 2 games and I am excited for it so I can play the dance games... :) fun times. Lexi is getting her own wooden kitchen with stainless steel play cookware and wooden food to pretend cook. She will love it, I can't wait to get all of our Christmas shopping done! I do want to get Knox some wooden teethers and maybe his own amber necklace for later. We shall see. Well Goodnight and I will try to figure out how to post pictures on here from my phone. Ughhh I cannot wait to get an iPad!!!

So it's been a while since I have posted, we have been sans laptop for a few months now, due to me spilling milk on it whilst cooking pancakes... Yes I was pissed and yes my husband was pretty upset with me for a while but that's another story. I never could figure out how to use blogger on my iPhone and I guess I finally figured it out. Soon however, we will have an iPad that my husband and I are getting each other for Christmas so I am super excited about that, our old laptop was lame anyway :). On to more exciting news, our newest addition to the family has arrived and he is about 3 and 1/2 weeks now. We are so in love and he is so perfect and it is still so surreal that he is here in my arms already. I delivered him at 37 weeks gestation. I never even knew I was in labor, I woke up at around 1:00am with period like cramps and went to the bathroom to find some bloody show and just had a very strong feeling I needed to at least get checked at the hospital. I drove myself there, and I noticed my cramps turned into very consistent and painful contractions and when I finally got checked, they were shocked to see that I was already dialated to a 7 and a bulging bag if waters! I was scared to death because it was so unexpected and I was not prepared but long story short, Knox Harper came into this world at 2:00pm nov 13 with an apgar score of 10 and a great set of lungs! We had a short hospital stay and arrived home with our newest bundle of joy. The first week was rough with a latch on problem with nursing so I had to pump so he could be able to eat and the second week he learned to latch on perfect and has been doing great since. The first week he went from 7lbs to 6.9lbs and on the second week checkup he was 8.5 so he gained about 2lbs! That was a happy day :). Lexi and Everett love their new baby brother. We are lucky to have such wonderful children, they are so good to each other. Christmas is just around the corner and we still haven't fine shopping due to all the new baby craziness! But soon we will get too. Well, as sleep deprived as I am, I feel ready to passout at any moment but I will be updating more often. Also, soo. I will be sewing my own cloth diapers and I'm really excited!

So I am thinking of making a new blog and possibly a youtube channel on makeup and hair. I absolutely am in love with makeup and such so I think it would be fun!
On another note, I am engaged!!! I would put a picture of my ring but I currently don't have it because its being sized :( but in 10 looooong days I wil have it yay! Even MORE shocking is our current "date" is July 2nd!!! Yes, 4 weeks, and in none other than Las Vegas! I already ordered two dresses, one for the ceremony and one for after, I will post pictures when they come in the mail. Yess, I am so pumped! Vegas, here we come!

I have just come back from my 2nd ultrasound and everything went great. the ultrasound says I am 14 weeks when we were thinking 13 weeks so baby was a little bigger than they expected. He got a pretty good profile shot with the more advanced machine, it was really cool and it makes it so much more real, I could even feel little movements as he was rolling the thingy over my belly! Its just so weird that I have that little baby in my belly. I mean, my boobs hurt, I get sick all the time but I just don't really feel like I have a little person inside me yet. Im sure as I start to show more and the aches and pains that come with pregnancy arrive, I will feel differently. Also, we haven't told many people yet because we are waiting to get married first...its been a long time coming but I am waiting patiently, I know it will be soon!
P.S- Im only around 13/14 weeks so its a bit early to say but they said it looks like we are having a boy! So boy names here I come... ugh boy names are the hardest. I have to find the perfect one though. Heres Baby Johnson's profile shot...

So... its been a while, but I have been so so super busy with working and kids that I just haven't really gotten around to blog BUT I recently starting becoming a stay at home momma again with the exception of working Saturdays at the salon. I missed being home with my babies and I love having this opportunity. Jarred has just gotten a raise and has been working long hours, which makes me sad but happy that he has a great job that he loves and that takes care of us.
So much has happened since I have been on here! I moved around to a couple of salons before I found one that I like and that has decent walk in traffic. However, if I had any idea how slow salons are around here at this time with the economy and all I would definitely opted for a different career and I still may do that in the future. I'm thinking possibly social worker for children? I would love to have a job where I am helping those in need and I want to make a positive difference in lives that really need help.
On another note... my little girl is now 15 months old and my little boy just turned 5! Time is flying by so fast, its hard to keep up. We just got back from Marine World which was a birthday trip for Everett and it was so much fun!
Last but not least, we are expecting a new little one to complete our family! I am 13 weeks as of tomorrow and no, it was not planned BUT we weren't really trying too hard to prevent considering that we have always talked about having our last one close in age with Lexi. We haven't told many people yet but I guess we should because they are going to guess when they start to see my growing belly! I always show is fast. Right now I kinda just look a little chubby around the waist. We are hoping for a boy but at the same time I wouldn't mind at all having another little princess. As long as the baby is healthy. Tomorrow we have an ultrasound, so I am excited about that and I will post pictures.
Its nice to be back on here!
