Where does Johnson fit in?

I realized I had explained our choice of the name Noah, but did not explain his middle name, Johnson.  Jeremy and I had decided way back when we had Elijah, we wanted our sons to have a first name from the Bible, and a middle name that honored family.

Elijah David- David was my grandfather that passed when I was only 16.  None of my kids had the pleasure of meeting him, but he was a great, GREAT man.

Isaac Whitley- Whitley is my dad's last name.  My dad does not have a son that carries on his last name, and we felt it was only right for our son to honor him.

Nahshon Jeremiah-  Jeremiah after his daddy, Jeremy, and he's a great daddy too!

Micaiah Gregory- after Jeremy's brother, the Marine.  I met Greg when he was only 11, and he's grown into an admirable young man.

Noah Johnson- after my great grandmother, Ruth Johnson.  She passed about 5 years ago, and was a wonderful, funny lady.

Never did we think we'd be blessed with 5 sons to name, but we're lucky we have so many family members we love and want to honor.
