Hey there!

Thanks for stopping by my blog- a place where I share a bit of my photography, a bit of my life, and a lot of me! I am in love with the life that God has provided me. I live with my wonderful husband in central Oklahoma, in the town of Edmond. I am a wife, sister, daughter, and friend. I enjoy my work as a nurse and photographer. I adore sweets, nature, and my pesky (but cute) boxer, Honey. I feel that I am blessed with a passion for photography, and pray that I am able to bless others through it.

Thank you for being here and sharing the experience with me!

30 Weeks Pregnant

Well we've made it. I'm officially in the 3rd trimester, and man do I already miss 2nd tri! Little man (who's name is Elijah Gray, or Eli) turned 30 weeks yesterday. I had a doctors appointment, all is well. I haven't had much for symptoms beside fatigue, bad dreams, and shoulder pain in the first trimester. I feel like second trimester came with a surge of energy the the desire to get some house projects done. I felt great, fit my clothes, and enjoyed all the little kicks. Now I'm starting to feel the fatigue come back on, I'm already having a hard time keeping this tummy fully covered, and I'm quick tempered and highly emotional, boo. But I am enjoying the punches and pushes from Eli, and can't believe that he'll be here in around 2.5 months! I'm finally realizing that we will actually have a baby again at the end of this, and actually got down all the baby clothes, washed and put them up this week (it's a bit early, but since I felt like doing it, had everything I needed- thanks to our neighbors for the free dresser for it to all go in!- and the time/energy, I figured I might as well get it done. I also bought Eli his first non handy-down items at a garage sale a couple weeks ago (another good thing about garage sales, Eli won't be able to complain that Isaiah got everything new, because they both have closets full of used stuff!). It was an adorable gap beanie (for $0.10- crazy!) and a cute frog stuffed animal. It makes me happy to have something just for baby! Below is my 30 week pic, which I didn't even realize until editing that I wasn't wearing makeup- nice... I think it shows my feelings for this week...

Isaiah turned 21 Months this week as well. How do you like his fake smile? I'm just happy he's sitting and looks decent, I tried to do a mini session of him this weekend in Kansas, man is this age tough to be in front of a camera-

Our May

Happy Memorial Weekend! We are excited to be in Tipton with my family enjoying some relaxing time and good food :c) But before we get home and I post about that (hopefully), I wanted to give an update on some other things I haven't been blogging. First was our trip last week to the lake. This was our second time to join our friends at their lakehouse on Lake Eufaula. It was a nice relaxing weekend, not quite the best lake weather (the lake was still freezing!) but we were able to make it into the boat, enjoy the sand beach, and again, eat good. Here's a pic of Isaiah with his borrowed dump truck enjoying the sandy beach.
 Sand and trucks are all a boy needs-
Such a cool dude
Here he is lovin' on "the baby" he became obsessed over!
 As you can see from Ray's face, this was a pretty intense game of bocce ball, a lake tradition
 I snapped this with my phone the first morning there, I love the beach at sunrise :c)
Isaiah also had his first boat ride and intertube experience, but I haven't gotten those pictures yet.. Thanks to Cory and Carly for hosting us!

 Here are the gifts form Isaiah on my second Mothers Day. He was so proud of his hand prints on the bag and fngerprint on my necklace. By this point, it was close to bedtime and he wanted to continue feeding me the m&m's he gave me.

The Saturday before Mothers Day we invited the LaRue crew over for dinner. Isaiah LOVED playing with all the kids! Like his coolwhip mustache?

I have been wondering for a while when I would get the classic pic of my son sitting in the cereal with the guilty look on his face- well, it never happened. But he did get in the cereal by himself for the first time, and it looks like him and the dog are up to something...
 For over a year now, Ray's dad has been coming to a doctor in OKC for his eyes. It makes for a great time to get to see him, and Isaiah certainly enjoys the time together. Here they are reading a book :c)

I hope you enjoy the weekend- no more computer time for me!
