Since the last time I wrote a lot has happened. On June 22nd my baby brother graduated from high school!! Where has the time gone?! It seems like yesterday I was moving to VA Beach and leaving my little 7 year old brother behind to live with his dad. Now when I look at him I see the little boy who has grown in to such a wonderful young man. Our mom would be so proud of him.
Onn July 4th Doug and I went to my family's house to celebrate. We of course had wonderful food and then went to downtown Norfolk to watch the amazing fireworks show.
Who remembers what was supposed to happen 2 days after this?!! We were supposed to find out if we were having a boy or girl!! And we did! If you know me at all, you know that I am hardly ever late to anything. I'm usually always on time or way early!! That being said, I was awake at 0430 for my 0900 appointment. I could not sleep!! The feeling was literally that of my childhood waiting on the top of my steps for my mom to give the ok for us to come down to open presents on Christmas day!! We got to the appointment right on time. I waited FOREVER it seems like. I watched people who came in after me go back before me. I felt myself tearing up because I felt like I was getting slighted somehow. Aaahh the hormones. So after snapping at Doug a couple of times (bless his heart for having to put up with me!) and waiting for what seemed like an eternity, we were called back. I sat up on the table and waited for the ultrasound tech to start the show. It really is a show! If I wasn't crying so much I could have eaten popcorn. Doug saw it before I did, but I told him to keep quiet. She asked if I wanted to know what the sex of the baby was (umm...duh!! again...if you know me, then you know I can hardly stand the suspense of surprises!! I have to find out everything! I'm EXTREMELY hard to surprise!). Then she told me what I had been feeling for the last 5 months. It's a boy. He is a perfect, beautiful, healthy boy. I had to pause the crying for a second to ask her if she was 100% sure it was a boy because now I can start shopping and I don't want to get a bunch of boy things for a girl! She said she was sure, and the crying resumed. All I could think of was that I'm going to have a son. Watching him on the screen was amazing, as usual. He's so beautiful already. His name is Zachary Ethan Johnson and I'm his mommy.
Lastly, we attended our good friends wedding on July 10th. Remember the red head at my wedding who caught the bouquet? It was her!! Laura and Mike got married down at the oceanfront this past Friday. She was absolutly stunning!! The wedding was beautiful and Mike wasn't so bad himself!!
That's all for now!!
Sarah, Doug and Zach...Rowan and Abby too!!
