{meeting the family}

Dillon also got to meet Mimi, Papa and Aunti Rara, what a busy day for all!

{meeting brother}

Mimi and Papa brought Cooper up to the hospital to meet his new brother
"WoW Dad, what's that!?"
"oh wait, there's a camera, I have to cheese!"
"Awesome, thanks for the new toy, something new to bang on"
"Mimi, can I play with my new toy?"
Our new family of four!


I finally got to hold you once we were in rocovery. I was amazed by all your unique characterisitcs yet amazed at how much you resembled your brother. I was in awe that you were finally here and that I finally got to meet you. You were such a big boy your hat would barely fit on your head! Everyone was amazed at how big you were, but your dad and I weren't. You were exactly the same size as your brother when you were born, except you were born about two weeks earlier than him. From that point on I was sure you were going to be the 'bigger' brother. You were so excited to be here that you were awake almost all day! I brought you to our room and you just wanted to take in the world. World, get ready!

{Announcing Dillon Lawrence Johnson}

6:44am 9 pounds 14 ounces
21 1/2 inches
Our new addition to our family, baby Dillon. With brown hair and blue eyes, ten perfect fingers and ten perfect toes...
Once the nurses were done with checking him out Brandon was able to hold him while they finished with me
So sweet, daddy and dillon


We're R-E-A-D-Y!!!!
Here we are in a delivery room of Baylor Frisco about to get prepped for my c-section (pending another sonogram). Everyone from intake to discharge (well, almost discharge;) at Baylor Frisco were awesome, very attentive, educational and supportive. I was prepped for surgery before Dr. Ehmer arrived to do the sonogram, so thank goodness Dillon was still breech so we go on as planned. Let me take this second to say in hind sight I was so pleased with the c-section. All in all it was a much better process and recovery for me. The only draw back was I did not feel like I "participated" in the delivery and I was a little sad about that for a while after the delivery.

{Are you ready?}

"Are you ready"
"Are we ready"
"Am I ready"
That is the question.....
That is what we were asking ourselves on August 2nd.
Today is October 24th and this is the first time I have sat down to update this blog since Dillon was born, so everything from the past almost 12 weeks is but a blur, but I was want it documented and many people have been asking what is going on with my blog. What happened was live with 2 awesome babies that take every second and ounce of energy out of me. So here we go.....
The night of August 2nd: house cleaned, Cain over to play with Doger for a few days, Ipo at Mimi's, Cooper at Mimi's, bags packed, truck ready, better get to bed because we have to be at the hospital in Frisco at 4am....are we ready? am I ready? well, we better be and I better be. My only fear that night was that Dillon has miraculously flipped over and we would be sent home without having him. At the last doctor's appointment Dr. Ehmer has said that when we arrived at the hospital we would do another sonogram and if he had flipped we would be sent home to wait. I had asked why we wouldn't just induce and he simply said we wouldn't since I was only at 39 weeks. I knew the possibility of him flipping was very slim, but I was prepared to throw a fit if I was sent home with no baby. I was as ready as I was going to be and with Cooper and the dogs where they needed to be I told Brandon I was not going home without a baby.
