As usual, I've been super busy & haven't had time to update. And as usual, I'm going to try my best to be a better blogger!!!! lol We'll see. My goal right now is to blog once a week! I think I can do that!

It seems like every time I update, Aubs is sick. Well, today is no different. I took her to the doctor this am and she has strep throat, again. I also brought up to her doctor that she doesn't seem to have grown any since she turned 2. He pulled up her growth chart on his computer & said Wow, yes, there is a problem there. She has always been little and on her own little growth curve, but she has completely dropped off the charts :( He is referring her to see an endocrine specialist at Arkansas Children's Hospital. He said it will probably be near the summer before they can get her in. He also did some labs on her today, to check her immune system. She could have an immune deficiency which could be why she KEEPS getting sick over & over. Those labs should be back in about 2 weeks. I just pray everything is okay with my sweet little girl!

We have been on the go-go-go lately! I have been super busy doing pictures. I am LOVING it!!! Me & Nathan have been praying very hard lately about some changes we hope will be happening for our family soon. I know if it's meant to be it will happen... it's all in God's hands!

Me & Aubs went to my parents house this weekend & we had a great time! Aubrey just loves her Nana & Papa so much! It makes me so happy to see them together :) I am blessed to have great parents who are also wonderful grandparents!!

This is all for now, I will try try try to be a better blogger!!! :)

Snow Day

As usual, I've been a very bad blogger. I have been so incredibly busy lately. However, today is another "Snow Day", so I am at home with Aubs, who is still sleeping away. I figured now was a good time to get back on track with blogging!

Aubrey is getting so big :) I can't believe she is already 2 & a half. It is like talking to a little adult with her now. She says some of the funniest things & makes us smile every day :) 6 weeks to the day after her surgery, I had to take her to the doctor & found out she had strep throat. I was not a happy momma. I thought having her tonsils out was going to help her not get it as often. Grr. Her doctor also told me her tube in her right ear was not functioning. This really made me not a happy momma. It's been 6 weeks!!!! Anyway, he put her on omnicef for the strep throat. Well, 10 days later, she was still sick. She now had a nasty cough, nasty green/yellow snot, & was wheezing. So, back to the doctor we went. He said she had a very bad sinus infection, which the omnicef should have been treating as well. However, she's been on this antibiotic so many times, her body's bacteria was not responding to the antibiotic anymore. Wonderful. I figured Aubs would start becoming immune to certain antibiotics since she has been on them SO many times. :( He switched her to a different antibiotic and she seems to be getting better now! :) He also said her other tube looked like it wasn't functioning now either. I will be so mad if she has to get ANOTHER set! Oh & my little shrimp weighs 22.4 lbs lol :) Her Valentine's Party is on Monday & I'm looking forward to being there!

Another reason I have been so busy lately is because in January, I launched my photography business, Fancy Photography (! It has been so exciting. I absolutely love photography & it is an amazing feeling to be doing something that I truly love! I've had a great response in business in just a month & it has definitely kept me busy! My dream is that one day I can quit my job as a nurse & just be a full time photographer :) My wonderful hubby made my entire website for me. He is very good with that kind of thing! I told him we were the perfect team lol So if any of you are looking for a reasonably priced photographer, you have found one! ;)

Anyway, as usual, I'm going to try to be a better blogger.... we will see how that goes! haha!
