Hello Again!!!

A quick catch-up on the lives of the Johnson's.

Whit is still working full-time at ADB. He is also in the MBA program and with a little pressure from me has decided to finish this coming December by taking an extra class each semester. He stays very busy and we don't see him much, but as Whit said there is now a light at the end of the tunnel. He has gotten into raquetball and is taking part in a tournament this weekend with the Leavitt Group. He and Ethan have become quite close just recently. It may be due to the fact that Whit is rarely home, but Ethan sure loves his daddy.

I am back in school as well. I have decided to get a masters in nursing and become a Nurse Practitioner. I will find out this June if I am accepted into the program at UNLV (it is online so we won't be moving anytime soon). I have been loving the past couple of days with the weather being so nice. It is refreshing to finally be able to go outside and not freeze.

Ethan is growing like a weed. He will be 2 in two weeks. I can not believe how fast time flies. His little personality is really begining to shine through, and with every new thing he does it reminds me how much like Whit he really is. He not only looks like him, but acts like him in everyway. We bought him big boy underwear for his birthday, I am just debating when I should attempt potty training. I think he will be excited about the underwear because they are Thomas the train, Ethan loves trains, but I don't think he will be thrilled about the potty part. We shall see.

Baby #2--Yes we are expecting a second!!! This is not an unexpected baby, for those of you who know me best I plan and when an idea hits me it is all or nothing and ASAP. (school is another example). Baby #2 will be arriving August 21st--or there abouts. :) Whit and I hope it is a boy so that Ethan can have a brother, but if it is a girl we will love her just as much. The exciting part is that we are not going to find out until we are holding our new little one in our arms!!!!

That is it in a nutshell, hopefully it will not take another 6 months for me to post again, but you never know:)

I"M SO EXCITED!!!! I mean for everything, school and all but mostly baby #2 haha. it is so much fun!!! I can't believe our boys are almost 2, it is crazy! I wish we could have another combined party but hey we're kind of far to do that. As for the potty training part, have fun, and invest in "potty treats" haha. keep blogging, i love the updates.

Congrats! Good luck with school - I could barely survive finishing up my last 3 semesters after Liah was born, so I have much admiration for you deciding to get your masters knowing that Baby 2 is on the way!

Congratulations on everything! I'm sad we didn't get a chance to get together over Christmas break. I'm jealous of the nice weather you are enjoying! We hit a high of 5 degrees today (without the wind chill)! Miss you!

Kathy Twitchell said...

Oh that is so exciting!!! Congrats. How have you been feeling? Thats great about getting your masters! I have had a hard enough time getting my bachelors but when all my kids are in school i would like to go back and get a masters. Good luck with everything. We should really get together soon. Maybe do FHE together or something...

Gene and Jenna said...

So...I will look for your next post when the baby gets here. Whit is just hoping that it will be another boy so he can tell all of his siblings that his predictions are always right! I don't know if I could wait to find out though.

Congrats on Baby #2! I wish I had the control to not find out what I'm having! That's cool. Sounds like you'll be busy! I talk to your grandma at the CEU games. She is so cute!

Nicholas K. and Sarah Maye said...

Yeah! Thanks for the update! We are so happy for you!

Hi Johnson Fam!! It's been a while, but I found your blog through Nate & Summer's. Anyway, it's nice to see what you guys are up to and that you are doing well. Happy B-day to Ethan soon and congrats on Baby #2. I remeber y youngest McKenna and Ethan were born close. Kenna's b-day is on the 25th. They grow up so fast :)Good luck with the whole potty-training thing...it was seriously the hardest thing I've had to do as a parent, but I think I started my eldest way before she was ready.

Take care of you guys and tell Whit Hi for me. See ya!

Kathy Twitchell said...

Hey Tiff....I am starting a little playgroup...what is your email address so I can email you info about it?

Telsha said...

Jeff just got accepted into his masters program and is going for a nurse practitioner too. I'll have to tell him you are too. Your little guy is a doll and congrats on #2. We are working on number 2 also but it's not due until Dec. Do you know what you are having yet? Well congrats on everything. You should check out our blog too it's jeffandtelsha.blogspot.com
