First Doctor Appointment

On Monday morning we drove 1.9 miles (aren't small towns great?) to see Beck's pediatrician for the first time. He got his weight checked out (multiple times it turns out because the scale hadn't been properly calibrated which resulted in more screaming than necessary because Beck didn't appreciate laying on a scale in a cold room for any longer than humanly necessary). Anyway, it was our Karen's first trip out of the house since coming home from the hospital on Friday and there was alot of snow on the ground so everyone was bundled up. Check out the pictures here.

Christmas Day and First Bath

Christmas Day was pretty uneventful in the Johnson household: feeding, sleeping, some crying, a bath and being with family. You can get the picture story here.

Day Two

Day two is in the books. Grandma, Dad, Mom and I hung out in Mom's room all day, got poked and prodded (as did Mom) and cried a couple times when I got hungry. Check out the cool hat that Grandma made for me and wow.. look how beautiful my mom looks a day after delivering me! Click here to see all the pictures.

Cradle & Nursery pictures

The CradleMy dad whipped together a cradle for us over the last couple months and it got here just in time this week. Grandma Waterbury (or Grandma Waterford as my friend Mike calls her because he can't remember that it's Waterbury!) and Karen put it together on Wednesday and then the mattress arrived in the mail on Thursday. There are more pictures of it and the rest of the nursery here.

Our Rocker Arrived...

Our baby rocker arrived this past week from Target (thanks to everyone who got us gift cards from Target!). If someone would get around to having a baby, I could show you the chair in action. Until then, enjoy the picture.

Mom To Be and the Christmas Tree

My mom (Betty Johnson) made sure that I took a profile picture of Karen before Beck arrived. I took this one the night we setup our new fake Christmas tree from Target, which also happened to be her birthday (12/6/2004). Happy Birthday Karen!



update 12/21/2004: We measured KJ the day she was induced and her circumference was 39 inches.
