2 Weeks and Growing

Ht: 21" - 72%
Wt: 7lbs. 14oz. - 31% (back to birth weight)
head: 14.5" - 67%

At two weeks old, Sophie is sleeping pretty well at night (and during the day for that matter).  She, like all the other Johnson Babies, is starting to spit up more...however, I don't think it is as bad as Kinley's tummy troubles.  She seems so much more content and sleeps both day and night.  We are starting to venture out a bit more and look forward to really getting into a routine.

Another Sweet Girl!

As many of you already know (thanks to facebook), we welcomed our 4th child into this world on June 13th at 2:21p.m.  Little Miss Sophie Alyse surprised us with HER grand entrance.  Her Daddy was so shocked to see that she was NOT a boy.  We are all truly madly and deeply in love with this sweet baby!

Sophie was 7 pounds 14 ounces and 21.5" long.  We were told in the hospital that she had a small heart murmur most likely caused by a PDA (small hole in the heart).  All babies have this at birth and it is supposed to close anywhere from minutes after delivery up to 48 hours after delivery.  The murmur the doctors heard was most likely her PDA in the process of closing up because when they checked her again the next day the murmur was gone.  Praise the Lord.

At the time of discharge from the hospital, Sophie was weighing in at 7lbs. 5oz. and at her one week weight check she was back up to 7lbs. 10oz.  She is a very good baby.  I did have her on a every 2 hour feeding schedule, but I was finding it extremely difficult to wake her for her feeds.  So for the last day or so I've bumped her to every 3 hours and she seems to be doing much better, although I'm still having to wake her for most of her feeds.  At night she does awesome.  She usually is asleep by 10:30 or 11:00pm and wakes up around 2 or 3 and then sleeps until 6a.m.

Other than a bit of stir crazy cabin fever, all the kids seem to be adjusting well.  Including Kinley.  All three of them argue over whose turn it is to hold Sophie.

39 Weeks...The End!

This baby has gotten his/her eviction notice.  Hopefully by this time tomorrow we will be enjoying the sweet snuggles of our newest addition.  This baby has been measuring big the whole pregnancy and the doctor is predicting close to 7 1/2 - 8 pounds based on the ultrasound measurements.  That is BIG for a Johnson baby AND WAAAAYYY out of my comfort zone of 6 1/2 pounders!  My total weight gain for this pregnancy has been a whopping 13-14 I'm hoping to walk out of the hospital already back to my pre-pregnancy weight! HA HA!  As you can tell by the poll on the side, it has been an overwhelming majority of boy votes.  We have a few that are holding strong on girl.  My gut says boy, mainly because I have carried this one so differently and because s/he is "big" and because it would even out the family.  However, I've had two dreams this pregnancy of the baby actually being born and both times it was a girl.  Either way, we can't wait to meet our fourth child.  It's going to be a wonderful summer!

Anyone else see the resemblance?

No matter what we do, the flip always returns! :)
