Catching up!

Wow, the last few weeks have been insanely busy for me! I feel like I haven’t even had time to breathe.  May 14th-15th Rani performed as a fairy attendant in Cinderella, a ballet presented by Mountainwest Ballet. She really had a wonderful time. Her dancing ability improved and she ate up being in the spot light. Thank you so much to everyone who came to support her. It meant so much to her and to me.  She felt like a princess and it was a wonderful experience for her.  She can’t wait to do it again!

Somewhere in the middle of all of her practices my baby turned TWO! I still can’t believe it! She is the sweetest child on the earth. I call her Mary Poppins because she is “practically perfect in every way”. She is always happy and she loves to cuddle with Mommy.  I adore all of my children but I have to say that right now Virginia is the one who has me wrapped around her tiny little finger.  On her birthday day we didn’t really get to celebrate. We spent most of the day at dance classes and the second half of the day taking the older two boys to try out to be an extra on a Liken Media movie. They didn’t make it, but it was fun to try.  We didn’t get to celebrate Virginia’s birthday until about three days after her actual birthday.  She received a new blanket for her bed, a new baby doll she named “Baby Amy”, some new clothes, and a new bike.  She was very happy and oh so adorable! I love this age.  I am going to enjoy it as much as I can.  I am going to miss her being so small when she grows up.  She had her 2yo well-child check up and she is completely back on track at 40th percentile for weight and 30th percentile for height.  Shocking after the ordeal we went through trying to get her on the chart at all!  She got her MMR vaccine and ended up having a bad reaction to it 12 days later. I hope that I have time to right about that ordeal soon. Right now I just don’t have the energy.

I have had quite a few photo sessions as well. They have definitely been interesting. I will post a hilarious picture here because I still can’t believe I did it.  I was taking senior photos for a young gentleman. He wanted graffitti in his pictures and the only place I could think of was out by the Great Salt Lake. Much to my chagrin we discovered that the place has been chained up! I stared at that gate for 10 minutes before I dared to brave it. I still can’t believe my 33 ks pregnant and already chunky self made it over the fence! That wasn’t the half of it. After we made it over the fence we were completely eaten alive by tiny little sand flies. They itched like crazy and we all looked like we had the measles when we were done. It was worth it though because we got some great shots.  I had another photo session a few days later where it rained on the 2yo and babies. The poor 2yo hadn’t had a nap and getting her picture taken was NOT what she had in mind for a nice day, but we got some fun shots anyway.  I am definitely looking forward to my maternity leave. It is tough to do pictures when pregnant. My brain feels fuzzy and I can’t do many things that I need to do to get the best shot. I love my job but I am soooo looking forward to a break! I can’t believe in less than 6 weeks I will be holding my new little one. I can’t wait to meet her! She is so special. I am so excited to spend time snuggling with a newborn again. That has to be my favorite thing in the world.
