Momma Sylas

Sylas is so protective of Libs. I am visiting my sisters in KC and Sylas go to come along. Here she is taking a nap with Libby. Sylas does have a very nurturing personality plus...she is preggers again. Pups will be ready for Christmas!! Call me if you would like a pup reserved 402-641-1101!!


Monday Night Football

It's that time of year again. FOOTBALL SEASON!!! Libby enjoyed her first of many many many NFL football games on the couch with Dad. She actually loves to lay on the couch with Jeremy and it gives me some free time to catch up on cuddle time with Sylas...poor dog!!

Libby Anne Johnson

HERE SHE IS!!! 4 weeks 6 days early of course! So here's the story folks:
I noticed so strong pains on Wednesday night but chalked it up to being just more Braxton Hicks. As the night went on I continued to feel them. I even had a dream early that night that I was in labor but nobody would listen to me and sent me home from the hospital. Well, I woke up at 3 am and noticed that I was bleeding and thought, "okay, this will convince them." So we went into the hospital and sure enough I was in labor. Dialated to 1 and 75% effaced. Sent home with some "T" meds that helped the contractions to slow down.
Saw Dr. Novak the next day at 1:30pm and was dialted to 3! Yep, she was coming! Checked again at 5 and was dialated to 4. So Dr. Novak made the call into St. Elizabetha Hospital to have us accepted there since the Seward Hospital won't deliver before 36 weeks.
After the sad news that she was breech and we would need a C-Section there were many tears shed. I think Jeremy was only disappointed because he wanted to try out the whirlpool in the delivery room!! 30 minutes later we headed into the OR. I had to quickly "let go and let God." And I am thankful I did. God has blessed us with a very healthy little angel!! I call her my little tree frog because she was breech and tends to take the position with her feet up like a frog. She was born at 8:38 pm on Thursday, July 30. 5 lbs 8.2 oz, 17 in long!

Here we are learning to take a syringe of "liquid gold" since she was too tired to latch on this feeding.

Kisses from Cowboy!!


Sleeping away the day. I can't get enough of her!! Hopefully we will continue to progress toward going home within a week.
I type this next part with tears overflowing. THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR HEARTFILLED PRAYERS. I am overwhelmed with love and kindness from so many family, friends, doctors and nurses. I am speechless!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

new favorite

I recieved an issue of Martha Stewart Living a while back and have been eyeing her recipe for blueberry pancakes ever since. Since my time in the mornings is very limited I "tweeked" her recipe. 1 pkg pancake mix & 1 pint fresh blueberrys. See how easy that was Martha!! Oh my they are so good. I had never had blueberry pancakes before and now they are my new favorite. So hot and sweet. When you hit a blueberry it bursts in your mouth. Why did I wait so long to try blueberry pancakes?!

34 weeks

Well, Baby Libby finally turned! She is no longer breech. Now let's just pray she stays that way. It was such a huge relief when my doctor said that she had turned head down. I did a lot of "tricks" to help encourage her to get in the right position but who knows if they actually helped. I tried laying upside down, standing on my hands in a swimming pool, diving into the pool (not a pretty sight) and reading my books or magazine on hands and knees. I really think it was God whispering in her ear!

The Next Generation

Today marks 32 weeks!!

Only 8 weeks left and I am quickly realizing that our lives are going to change drasticly very soon. Jeremy and I will soon be at the end of one journey, couplehood, and on to the next, parenthood. I have loved the last 6 years we have spent together as a couple and (never thought I would say this) I will miss "just us". Dear Jeremy, you are the best cowboy, friend and husband I could ever dream of. Here is to the next era in our lives. Cowboy Up!!
