I remember the first Sunday I met the Johnson family. It was at our church & Rachel was playing with Tessa outside in the foyer. I was supposed to be taking pictures of something but got distracted when I saw little Tessa & Rachel & went & introduced myself. Ended up finding out they had just moved to the area from Fargo, North Dakota! My mom grew up in the Fargo-Moorhead area & you really don’t meet too many people from there. It was fun to talk to someone who knew that part of the country & compare notes. The Johnson’s began coming to our small group & it’s been fun having them around & being in our community.
I was also super excited when I found out Rachel was expecting!!! We are actually just about 7 weeks a part in our pregnancies & I’m excited to watch the Johnson Family welcome a baby boy sometime in November!!!
I love how her hair, outfit & flowers just GO together <3
It’s super fun for me personally to watch the eldest child in a family as they transition from being the only child to the oldest. I’ve watched this happen with a few of our friends & their families that go from 3 to 4. I love watching the dynamics change. Maybe it’s because I’m the oldest in my family with 3 younger siblings 😉 Little Tessa is such a sweetie & I know she’s going to be make a fantastic big sister! She’s already excited about Baby Brother!
Sweet, pretty Tessa. I already miss her cuteness!
Being silly & trying to put flowers in daddy’s mouth.
I love these next set of images!
He kind of likes her 😉
Sadly, Jeremiah, Rachel, Tessa & Baby Boy Johnson moved just a few weeks ago from Illinois to Pennsylvania. It’s sad because they’re no longer here & we don’t see them at church or small group BUT it has been a good move for them since they are closer to Rachel’s family & Jeremiah accepted an even better job position. I was really looking forward to our babies playing together but obviously the Lord’s plan is better then my wishes 😉
I’m SO glad we got to know them in the year that they were here & I really enjoyed our evening session we had together before they left. Thank goodness for facebook & being able to keep in touch! I look forward to watching from afar as this family of 3 becomes a family of 4!!! Keep in touch Johnson’s & I’m always up to be flown to Pennsylvania for a family session someday 😉 We miss you guys!!!
