Dream a little dream

I am 4 months old today!
Wow! Miles sleeps through the night, and will go to sleep on demand :) He feeds himself, I mean really makes his own bottle and everything. When I become too boring to look at, because I haven't had the chance to brush my hair or my teeth and still wearing the same clothes for a week, he pops in a DVD for some healthy visual stimulation. If he notices the laundry piling higher than the hamper, he'll put a load in (and folds too). I never have to pick up after him because he makes sure that after he's finished with his toys he puts them away. Bottles, bottles, and more bottles... I must say Miles is on top of that as well, he cleans them, sterilizes them and assembles them ! Are there any Child Labor Laws that I can be reported for? Oh yeah I almost forgot HE'S POTTY TRAINED! You heard me POTTY TRAINED! No More Dirty Diapers and No Accidents either! Listen Folks I'm just kidding about the child labor!
Miles: Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh
Mommy: Ok, Ok, Ok I'm up !

Mommy's Must Haves!

MUST HAVE #1 - Miles' Smiles
The past 16 weeks have been the most fufilling, draining, rewarding, hectic, depressing and enlightening. As you can see it has been a rollercoaster ride of emotions, but now I feel that I do better with the ups and downs. Every now and then I get thrown for a loop (no pun intended). Just when I think I'm about to just shut down, Miles turns to me (Mommy) and flashes me his award winning gummy grin. Its like giving me new batteries, I'm recharged!

MUST HAVE#2 - The Pacifeeder
A hands free baby bottle which promotes doctor recommended semi-upright feeding to reduce ear infections. Nipple stays full of liquid; reducing colic. Nipple won't leak.Bottle attaches to any car seat, stroller, etc., which prevents bottle dropping and tossing.
Built-in air vent. Air breathes into bottle as liquid is drawn out, eliminating vacuum which reduces ear infections and prevents collapsed nipples.
Miles really gets a kick out of being able to feed himself. It is convenient when you are on the road or out and about. It can be found at
MUST HAVE #3 - Swaddle Me Blanket by Kiddopatmus
When we brought Miles home from the hospital, he was having trouble staying asleep. We for the life of us could not figure out why. Just before we were ready to see if he'd be more comfy in a dresser drawer, we pulled out this thing. JUST KIDDING ABOUT THE DRESSER! None of the receiving blankets that we got as gifts fit him at all. They were using two blankets on him at the hospital. It was a Godsend to say the least! I went online to find more in a bigger size and got them, but they were tooo big. They only come in sizes Preemie, Small and Large. No medium! Now that Miles has pretty much outgrown the original and does a pretty good Bruce LeeRoy impression, it no longer holds him through the night. I am currently looking for something that will contain him until her grows into the others. Any and all suggestions are welcome!

Here Comes "Miles" Cottontail ...

Happy Easter!

Yesterday was Easter Sunday and boy were we busy. The day began by going to service at Greater Saint Matthew independent Church. That started on time and Miles was doing fine while the choir was belting out hymns, but as soon as the organ got started, Miles was less than thrilled. First, the lip poked out and then was followed by a whimper that only segued into a full on wail. The organ was sooooo loud that he didn't interrupt the song. Ryan and I were very pleased that, that was the only incident. Now mind you there were other children there who were older than Miles and they acted a damn fool! There was one child in particular, she looked to be at least 12 yrs old and actually threw a tantrum and slid out of the pew. Ryan had to pick her up off of the ground. I was waiting for her mother to yank her up and take her to the bathroom and have her feel more than just the spirit if you catch my drift!!!!!

The Many Faces Of Miles

Is this the face of a child that loves to be washed? Miles would rather bask in the mystery aroma coming from the folds of his neck. This is usually the look that we get when he is put into the tub. As for the creative hairdo, that was all my doing. His daddy feels the need to capture it on film so that we can use it to show his future girlfriends.

This is me and my Grandmommy, oh yeah Clarabelle Cow and Paul the Giraffe. Boy do we love Grandmommy!

@#$% PAPARAZZIWe are sitting in the car waiting for Ryan to come out of Babies R Us. I got bored and thought this would be a good opportunity to take a pic of my boy. Let's face there always time to take a pic! By the look of this picture, Miles doesn't think so. NO MORE PICTURES PLEASE!


Miles is a lively character, and has a multitude of facial expressions. "Let me introduce me to my little friend".

When Miles had gone to the doctor for his out of control cradle cap and to ask a gang of questions that were and are being produced faster than the speed of light. Anywhoooo, we found out that Miles has this deficiency and it can be life threatening! So please take the time to read the information.


In my effort to keep people informed and current with the goings on of the Johnson 3, I inadvertently kicked myself out of my own #$%# blog! So now I invite you to check out both of them. I'm new at being a computer geek. :) I only have a moderate level of geekdom when it comes to computers. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth!

It seems to be that Miles is starting to teethe, just as his dad is working a 24 hour shift at Engine 5. We noticed that he was a faucet of drool for the past couple of weeks and just this week he wanted to put anything and everything into his mouth! This morning he cried inconsolably for at least an hour and I'm sure my neighbors have DHS on speed dial. :) I had never seen him look to be in so much pain before, not even when he got a spinal tap! Finally he cried so much he along with some grape Tylenol he was fast asleep. After all of that there are no teeth to be see yet! Stay tuned!
