Life happens SO fast these days...here's where we've been!

I can't tell you enough how fast time goes these days. I do know one thing, that I have never been happier in my life than I am now as a wife and a mother to two wonderful little girls. We are busy, and that's the way we like it. I keep telling myself that it's going to slow down. In actuality, it will never slow down and we've now decided to embrace the craziness.

As I lay my tired self down to sleep...I am lucky and my heart is full of love, eager to spend another day with my family.

So here's what we've been up to the past month......

My amazing grandfather drove 7 hours to meet his new GREAT granddaughter. Priceless.
Taylor and I attended my Mom's club getaway weekend in Rockaway Beach
We did a lot of this....
and Taylor really enjoyed all the snuggles from everyone

"Soul Boy" reading...

These days Parker is pretty much reading books front to back... in her her "soul boy" language. What, you may ask is "soul boy" reading? Well, when you don't know some of the words, you simply insert "soul boy" to fill in the story and BAM, you have "soul boy" reading.

Little late...but happy 1 month Taylor!

Well, I'm a little late with this post, but I'm a little late to everything these days with two kiddos. Updates: Over 10lbs now and 22 inches long. She is finally on a sleep pattern at night. Only up twice with ab out 4-5 hour stretches. She is an amazing little nugget. Snuggles and smiles, thats what her day consists of...well and lots of pooping. Man I'v never seen a little one poop so much. TMI..anyways. Happy Fall to you all!!
xxoo The Johnsons



Love the falling over photos:)
