Introducing...Baby Oly!

We're expecting!... Again! Baby #5 is on it's way. We had the 8 week ultrasound appointment on Nov. 2nd. We left the kids with Auntie Tonya under the guise of an appointment for Kivi's tonsils - which are coming out in 2 days. Sorry Tonya, we lied.



Expecting to see an 8 week little blob we find this:

A much more developed little baby. The ultrasound technician told us we were actually 11 weeks along. So we get to tell all of you sooner! Peter always names the baby at the first ultrasound. He usually names them after what he sees on the screen. Thus names like: Froggy (Eben), Egg (Kivi), Thumbkin (Jasper) and Baby Bean (Opal). But this baby looked nothing like the others. All he could think of was how old the baby looked and so he called it Oldy. However, for the sake of cuteness he changed it to Oly (Oh-Lee).

The name is perfect because after bringing everyone back home he told everyone to pack up because he was taking Mama on a birthday surprise! After dropping the kids off at Miss Kim's house (Thank you, thank you Kim!!!) we drove a short distance to Olympia (see the Oly part) where we stayed at a quaint and comfortable B & B for the night!!




I really love this man. I was completely satisfied with my corn maze, pizza dinner and pedicure he got me on my birthday. And then he went and did it again! He never fails to surprise me, excite me and love me!


The Swantown Inn Bed and Breakfast was wonderful! We were the only guests there, stayed in the biggest room with a huge king bed and jetted tub. Peter also made me an appointment at the Attic, the spa they have in the attic. It was so relaxing! Two whole hours to enjoy at the spa! First, I had a foot bath, sipped vanilla tea and nibbled on lavender tea cookies while talking to Peter, then I had a lovely massage, and ended my time in a 6 headed shower! Ahhhhh! Thank you Babe! I love you so much!

Holy Oly! The Johnsons never cease to amaze us!!! We are so, so, so happy for you all.

We were in Alaska last month at a rock museum and all I could do was think to myself: this would make a good Johnson name. No, this would make a good Johnson name. And now here we are; baby is on the way PLUS you've chosen the name.

God Bless you Peter and Amber; the world needs more couples like you!!!

Love,
Deb and John

I totally thought you were the last time I saw you, and I kept staring at your tummy, but thought it might be rude to ask! lol. Congratulations, it's about time, this is the biggest age gap that you have isn't it? Super cool. Does this mean you won't be doing foster care though?
