Paige is now 7! How can that be?! I can't believe how fast these years has flown by. She is wise beyond her years. She is so loving and caring and is such a help to me. She's become pretty sensitive as well. The other day I had all the young women over to my house for our weekly activity. I prepared the kids and told them that they would have to go to bed after the girls arrived. Well, Paige was pretty upset because she wanted to stay up. After I put her to bed she came out and put a letter on the ground for me to read. Here's what it said, "I feel unloved and careless. All I wanted to do was be a part of the fun. P.S. I don't think you love me. P.P.S. I didn't write love Paige, from Paige Needless to say I let her stay up for another hour. For the record I LOVE YOU PAIGEE GIRL!!! She's in need of some mommy/daughter time so tomorrow we are going on a date! I told her she can pick whatever we do. She decided that we are going to go get Jamba Juice and then Subway for lunch and then go for a drive through the hills in Lincoln on the back roads and talk. What a sweet girl. Her polar opposite, Hunter, is choosing to go shooting the BB gun with daddy. ha Her new pics will be coming soon!!!
So after a rough start our baby boy is on the mend...FINALLY!!! At 10 days old I thought he had a cold, but took him to the doctor to make sure. Turns out he tested positive for influenza. He was doing well so they didn't hospitalize him. Then at 4 weeks old he get a really bad cold on top of just recovering from the flu! DARN having babies born in the winter! His cold turned into RSV and he was hospitalized for 3 days. He is such a trooper and still a great baby. He's now much better, but we are taking extra precautions and keeping him away from other children and babies so he doesn't get anything else. On a lighter note, we just got his pictures taken and he's going to be a heart breaker...he's already stolen mine!

The long anticipated day came on January 14, 2011 at 9:41am when we welcomed our new little baby boy, Blake Thomas Johnson, to our family. He was born weighing 8 lbs. 6 oz. and was 21 inches long. By the time we left the hospital though he was down to 7 lbs. 10 oz. (we've never had a baby that small before). People kept commenting on how big he was and we would just laugh because we thought he was so tiny! Blake came into this world via c-section and all went well and very smoothly. I, Rosanne, am recovering quite well and it's been my easiest recovery yet! Unfortunately little Blake started off with some issues with jaundice and after having his heel pricked for blood 6 times, being weighed at the doctor's office daily and being under a phototherapy blanket 24/7 for a few days he's finally jaundice FREE! As hard as we tried to keep the germs away, his loving older brother, Hunter, shared his cold germs and now our little guy has a cold. Other than that he is a healthy and happy baby. He really is the best baby I've ever had or seen. He rarely ever cries and if he does it only lasts a few seconds. He is such a sweet and happy boy and is so adorable too. We are all so in love with him and the kids are adjusting well to having another baby around. Here are some pictures of little Blake Thomas Johnson. Enjoy!

So today was the big day for our family. I have never understood why people want to wait to find out what they are having (boy or girl). Something about being surprised when the baby is born. Well, not us. We gathered around the ultrasound screen as a family and were surprised all together...and it's probably a good thing too. Now we have time to prep the kids so they will be sooooo excited when our new little addition joins our family in January (date still to be decided). We all voted and the consensus was that the baby was a girl. and they official word is (well 95% sure)..................................... It's a BOY!!!!!!!!!!!! The kids are warming up to the idea (they were pretty dead set on it being a girl). We are excited though and happy that the baby is healthy. Now on to figuring out a name. Feel free to give your ideas (Hunter was a suggestion from my cousin and we actually used it). Although we've already been advised about Gunner or Fisher and how they would be great, that will not be happening...we aren't quite that redneck. ha
