Ethan really does love his little brother. The first day I don't think he realized that we had an addition to our family, but now if he can't see Brenden he asks, "Mommy where is Brenden?". I forgot what it was like to have a baby in the house, but it has been way fun and exciting to add Brenden to our family.

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:)
