Happy 7th Jake

September 15, 2010, 7 years ago, I was about to have my first baby. A sweet little baby boy. We never could decide on a name until the very end. All of my baby shower cakes said "welcome baby" :) We finally decided on Jake - I loved it and I loved him so much and hadn't met him yet. I was so scared and nervous and excited. I couldn't even stand it. He was born a little after 1:00 pm. Weighing 8.6 lbs. He was the most beautiful person I had ever seen in my life. I couldn't believe that I carried this baby for a long 9 months. He was perfect. A perfect gift from God. The one thing I had done right in my life. Jake Eli Johnson - you are so so so loved.
My little stinker... mommy's best friend!
All grown up with a little wild brother now... you two complete me in every way.

My stud :)

Jake you amaze me every year that passes. You're heart of pure gold is hard to come by. I am so proud of you and proud to be your momma. I say this all the time and every year but man kid, you teach me so many things about life. I'm so beyond thankful for you. You're smart, funny, handsome, talented in everything you do, kind, loving, always there to help someone. I thank God for you daily. Thank you for being you :)
Love, Mom

First Day of Kindergarten

Well we made it through open house and the first day with all smiles and no tears from Jake or MOM. :) #winning. Here are a few pictures from the first week.

Second day pic 

Week 2: 
We have started Jake on the bus. He loves it so much! I was a nervous wreck and gave myself a headache worrying so much. I even called the school to make sure he made it there. Ugh. He's too little to ride the bus! Will is still adjusting to Ready, Set, Grow. So far in the mornings he is screaming like crazy. I hate it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is my last week at Arkansas Valley Electric. Nine long years working here... but I finally got a better job offer working for the Fort Smith Schools as the Payroll Specialist. Excited but also very scared! I feel like AVE is all I know. I have prayed for a new job opportunity and this door opened easy, so I felt like I should go for it. I also pray that I am not putting my family in more stress with driving more and leaving real awesome benefits at AVE. We will see what the Lord has in store for me and my family.... prayers are appreciated.

To Will on your second birthday 5-29-16

You are my best little buddy. You are a momma's boy. You LOVE your brother and do everything he does even though you fight with him. You bit him the other day but cried real hard about it. You are feisty and such a ham. You have a horrible temper but your hugs and kisses melt me! You are SOOOO FUNNY. Other things you love are; Lola, your bink, snacks, outside, 4wheeler, tractor, all your family, you LOVE to dance, and you love to watch the minions LOL! You call them "minnies".

You have started talking A LOT. You can tell me what you need and what you want. You also tell me "no momma" all the time which gets you in trouble :) You're too stubborn to potty train right now. Not sure when we will tackle that. 

I love you more than you will ever possibly know. You have tested my patience more than a few times and I'm sure you will continue you to but my love for you is endless. You have completed our beautiful family and I'm so proud to be your momma. I am excited to watch you grow and learn and watch you and Jake become closer friends/brothers. You are going to move mountains Will. God has a plan for you! :)

Happy Birthday Will Garrett Johnson!
