I talked to Grandma Leyendecker and she told me that Shelby is getting rambunctious. This is grandma's nice way of saying she is getting an "attitude". She said she wants what she is not supposed to have and gets mad when you take it away. Yup. And she said she was on the second stair before she knew it. Aunt Kristen fessed up and told grandma that she taught her how to climb the stairs. She said Shelby is fast. Yup. I have to admit it is pretty peaceful here at the moment. Thanks grandma!
As for the rest of Ross' family in the valley they fared about the same. Loss trees, a small building blew down, some barn doors flew down, no electricity, some water damage. The worse was probably Ross' Uncle Lynn's cows were standing in deep water and had no dry ground. They are working on getting them out. We have had to swim cattle out of the river bottoms when the river floods many times before, so I know how frustrating that is. No word yet on the cotton crop but I fear that it was lost.
Anyways, the best that could come out of this situation is that Shelby will get to spend time with her grandparents, aunt, and cousins. For the next week+ I am back at work while the lady that replaced me is becoming a grandma. Shelby is with her grandma Leyendecker this afternoon but we will be putting her on the payroll next week at Clay & Leyendecker, Inc. if need be. Her job title "Entertainer". As for a mini Shelby update the child practically runs now. She follows us all around the house and has developed an "attitude". She is quite headstrong, actually that doesn't even scratch the surface. She got mad at me the other day and started slapping me in the face. Aunt Kristen witnessed it and I think was a little shocked! Ross' cousin Karyn came by with Aunt Ann and Aunt Sherry and took some pictures of Shelby. I will share some when we get them. I saw a couple after she took them and they were really cute.
Keep the Johnsons in your prayers......

I put Shelby in her crib to take a nap and she kept talking and talking and finally she was quiet for some time so I thought I would make sure she was covered. I went up stairs and this is what I found. Shelby was asleep sitting up and hunched over with her head on the bumper pad and the thumb in her mouth!!!!

I didn't have a picture of Great-Grandpa on my computer, so, here is a picture Kelsey took of four generations of Johnson farmers! Great-Grandpa is the good looking one on the right!

Isn't this fun mom?
Shelby enjoying her new toy. For the first couple of days, she did nothing but make laps around it.
The child does have eyes, I promise.
I make spaghetti look gooood.
