I have been wanting to create a blog forever and I finally kicked it in the butt and decided to "try" and make one. I say try because I suck at stuff like this!! (Amie aren't you proud?) But I've decided that staying in touch with friends and family is very important to Colton and I, since those family and friends have been there for us in our times of need.
Sheesh where to start? Colton and I have known each other since we were both juniors in high school. We met at Spanish Fork High School (how romantic) in history class. Colt was always the one peeking over my shoulder to get answers, and I never turned him away! I remember one specific time that Colt gave me a ride home one night after we had just hung out for only the 2nd time and called me 5 minutes later to tell me I "forgot my coat" when really it was July and I had no coat with me... but I played along and now here we are! Colton and I were married July 6th 2007. In October of that same year entered in our little blessing Oaklee Mae Johnston. She was born on October 5th at 12:37 in the morning after 1 hour of labor, (yes one hour) and 10 intense minutes of pushing in which my epidural had worn off. Just my luck, but it was love at first sight. She was 6 pounds 9 ounces and 17 1/2 inches long. My doctor has told me that she has never seen a labor so fast, and that my next baby I better plan on being at the hospital days in advance! (no worries that wont happen anytime soon,) Oaklee has changed our lives in many ways. I really understand what it means to be unselfish, loose sleep, (which I'm sure alot of you understand) and have unconditional love for such a little person. I've learned many lessons from my now 16 pound miracle that I never would have learned had she not been here. God works in mysterious ways! She brings so much joy into our life, and I can honestly not imagine where we'd be without her!
