Johnny was born two weeks late. He looked and acted more like a one-month-old than a newborn!


He had us charmed from the start – the most cuddly baby ever,


With a smile to charm anyone!


Johnny loves to make us laugh.


He adores his family, and would do anything for any of us.


Happy Birthday, Johnny!

  1. Happy birthday to Johnny!!! He’s such a cutie, and obviously a very sweet little boy! You’re doing an amazing job!

  2. I love every single one of these pictures. They are all so sweet.

    I find it ironic that both of our ‘middle’ children was born two weeks late–my Jack was two weeks late. Can you believe Johnny is four?! Jack turns four in March and I know it will be here way too soon. And, Lily and Jesse already two :(?? Bittersweet, isn’t it…ok, I’m always wondering and I’ve kept you posted, so…still not ready for number 5 here. I am, but know I just can’t handle it yet. Some days I’m just so content with four and other days I long for number 5. For now, we are still choosing to savor our four and think on it later when we feel more ready. Just thought I’d share that with you–should have emailed it :-).

    I’m so late, but Happy Birthday to Johnny! And, I LOVED his robot cake and the way Mike served it to him!
