Had my anatomy scan Tuesday and my sweet Aubree is going to be having a little brother! I can't even believe it!💙💙💙

He is measuring right on track. Heart and lungs looked great! My cute boy is healthy as can be! So blessed to have a healthy baby boy on his way😌

I am not sure if I'll have any more kids so having one not and one girl will be fun! Aubree will be a good big sister.

Ryker already looks like he has his sisters cute button nose 😌



Hey there Mr. Tin Man
You don't know how lucky you are
You shouldn't spend your whole life wishin'
For something bound to fall apart
Every time you're feeling empty
Better thank you lucky stars
If you ever felt one breaking
You'd never want a heart

Hey there Mr. Tin Man
You don't know how lucky you are
I've been on the road that you're on
It didn't get me very far
You ain't missing nothing
'Cause love is so damn hard
Take it from me darling
You don't want a heart

Hey there Mr. Tin Man
I'm glad we talked this out
You can take mine if you want it
It's in pieces now
By the way there Mr. Tin Man
If you don't mind the scars
You give me your armor
And you can have my heart



I decided to sign back up for classes to finish my Associates Degree in Digital Photography! I am so excited. This week I've been talking to Financial aid counselors and today I started my introduction and class orientation course! I will begin full time classes on April 20! Which is perfect! My family is in town and next week my aunt and her family will be in town! Gives me time to see family and hang out then as they leave I'll be able to jump into classes! I have a job interview tomorrow for an at home CNA position and I am also excited about that. It has amazing pay and if I work weekends it's a dollar more. So yay for being available on the weekends 😌

It has been so nice not being as sick. I am still not gaining weight but I have stopped losing so much. I have hit a stop. Which is great. I still can't eat everything but I am able to stomach a lot more than I was before and I'm no longer on home care or IVs!
No more feeding tube either! I don't want to jinx myself... but I have been feeling so much better emotionally the past two weeks I think that has had a huge impact on my physical health! Just gotta keep moving forward and bettering myself every day 😌

Therapy has definitely helped. I have been reading the 7 habits. Again. Lol it really is a great read. In fact.. one of the only books I've read. I need to find another good uplifting book. I have also challenged myself to learn something new everyday.

Today I have been working on shooting in manual mode with my camera facing towards the light. It's hard and my subject was still a little dark and out of focus but I'll keep working on it! It is good to know because I need to be comfortable shooting no matter what the weather is. I tend to get excited when there are clouds or lots of shade. Being able to shoot in the sun will provide a wider variety of images and will make my pictures warmer and bright. Pretty soon I will have a home lighting kit and I'm SO excited for that. That will take me one step closer to having an in home studio to shoot newborn and milestone sessions!

This photo below was taken yesterday! But today I have also been working on my business logo. This is also an example of shooting towards the light!

I am so excited to be taking my sisters wedding photos on Saturday! That will also provide experience and help build my portfolio.

Tomorrow my grandma and I are getting our nails done early in the morning then my grandma is off to the temple with my sister!

Friday I believe we are headed up that way to help set up the reception area then we will spend the night so we can be up early and ready for the wedding. I am doing my sisters hair so I feel I need to practice my hair doing skills as well! It's not hard. But I feel lots of pressure with it being her big wedding day.. I want it to be perfect. I want her images to be perfect too! Praying it is a good day! Looking at the weather it's supposed to be cloudy.... so yay for being in my comfort zone on such an important day! There's always next week to jump out of my comfort zone lol....

After the wedding we have another week of fun things planned while my aunt and her family are here! We're going to the church history museum then we are going to the baby animal festival. I am so excited to take Aubree! She knows the majority of her animals and the sounds they make! SHES SO SMART.

I have to expand on her for a bit... I could talk about my sweet baby Aubree all day long lol. She can now count to three in her own.. she gets so excited when she does things or is about to do them and she will now count to three.. then she says YAY! She knows head shoulders knees and toes and does all the actions! She skips her shoulders and goes straight for her toes.... but she has the rest down! She does the itsy bitsy spider and she loves ring around the rosies! She will repeat back to me the alphabet. I have downloaded some nick Jr games on my phone and that has helped her with colors and letters as well! She repeats everything you say but she doesn't quiet understand different colors yet. She'll get there 😌 every morning we go straight to the potty! She has gone a few times but she's still getting the hang of actually going potty... she will sit there though, which is a great start. When I notice she has gone I'll quickly run her to the potty! So yay for potty training! I'm hoping to not have to buy anymore diapers! I have a pack and a half left... so I've got about 3 weeks to have her trained lol. #goals

Lol anyways... I'm rambling. BUT. We're doing good and we have a few weeks of fun ahead of us to look forward to!

Here's a pic to end the post of my sweet Aubree playing with her baby! She has such a sweet heart. She is going to be the cutest big sister ❤️❤️ can't wait to find out if she'll be having a brother or a sister!! My appointment is on the 11th!
