It’s been awhile since I shared a ‘say what’ and really got everything off of my…er…belly.  I mean, really?  I’m already this big??  Oh and holy cow (literally) did I find the coolest shirt ever at Target.  Love it.

This shirt would also be appropriate if I was returning to work as a behavior teacher today (thinking about all of you!!), but that’s another story.  So anywho…here are 2 more pics just for my Mom – hey look it’s my face…hmmm, maybe I should have brushed my hair.  Nah.  I’m in my 2nd trimester, but I swear this is how round I was with Andrew during the start of my 3rd.  Yikes.  Oh, and thanks to my Max for taking these.

so here it goes.  Maybe I have snapped a little.  Feeling great, honestly, if not a little neurotic.  Ya see – this little photo thing really blew up in my face.  I’ve taken on a lot and I’m getting so tired of disappointing my clients with the wait time.  I feel terrible and stress about it.  all.  the.  time.  I just can’t work fast enough and the all hours of the night thing are rough after chasing the boy and nesting like crazy all day.  Sorry I’ve snapped.  I know my problems are minimal compared to others.  After the fall I will be taking time for the new baby and helping prepare my 1st for all the changes.  Then there’s some maternity leave.  I would love to come back refreshed (if not sleep deprived) and willing to have a better turnaround on proofs plus feel a creativity boost.  There will be a price increase and it kills me but custom photography takes time.  lots of it, I’ve found.  Saying no hurts, but something’s gotta give.

Okay – snap out of it, you say.  Things are fine!  Things are great!  Wait.  It was 107 today…and that is NOT okay.  But, it’s true…I couldn’t be happier with the boundless laughter and ice cream that is in my life right now.  Thanks for putting up with me and for still being here.

    Mindy - You will be so glad you took some time. Two kids is a little harder than it seems (at least it was for me). But it is worth every crazy moment. I’m so happy for you. I love your shirt too. That is my color!
