handsome AND handy? i think so.

ok i just have to brag for 2 seconds about JD.... since this is my blog--i can do that right? right! i just need to give a shout out to my main man cause he has been building saddles for the past month and a half like a crazy person---waking up sometime at 3:30 cause he can't stand when things are on his brain that he needs to make sure he gets done that day... and then he'll work til about 6:30 or 7 most nights. now he'll be calving for the next month and he's in for some fun times--- 12-15 hour days in below zero temperatures some days---like yesterday for example. it was about -25 with the wind. i felt bad for him ALL day! well---i think it's safe to say he knows how to work! a few days ago he decided to take a couple days off of saddle making before he had to start calving and during that break he made me the coolest purse! everything is from scratch, except for the zipper that he got at the fabric store... what a stud huh? it will be perfect for the times that i go places without the kids... cause right now i just haul my diaper bag / backpack with me no matter what cause i don't really have anything else. i can't wait to use it! i sure do love my handy man hubs! isn't it neat!?

ps- if you haven't checked out his leatherwork site then you're missing out... go see his cool saddles and chaps!

33 weeks.

today i went to the doc and little man is still right on track. for some reason, 33 weeks is a milestone for me with my pregnancies... it seems a lot further along than 32 weeks in my mind and all the weeks after just seem like baby will be here super soon. {just how my brain works i guess}. but we are getting super excited for him to get here! here is the belly with 7 weeks to go.

{don't be fooled by that treadmill in the background... unfortunately it hasn't been used in WAY too long}


random thoughts

i have been thinking a lot lately about how i'm almost 32 weeks pregnant and baby boy will be here before i know it. i kind of feel guilty sometimes when i think about all the time and attention that he will take away from jonnie so it makes me feel sad about it. but i also know that she will absolutely adore him and love being a big sister. she already is the best helper... and her motherly instincts are like woah. really. i just hope i can figure out how to give her all the attention that she still needs once little guy is here. everyone else does it so i KNOW it's doable.

8 more weeks... really? this pregnancy has FLOWN by. i still feel great. getting pretty big though. one day i will take another picture since it's been a month since my last one. whoops. maybe tomorrow i'll put that on my to-do list.

we're coming down to utah this weekend and staying for about 5 days. i can't wait to see family! i'll bet dutch is gonna give jonnie lots more of these.... and hopefully we'll see some friends too. speaking of.... one of mine just had her baby yesterday and he is darling. makes me super anxious for my little man to arrive. but not too anxious. he can still cook as long as he wants! hopefully i'll be able to squeeze that little babe sometime while i'm down there... and even snag a few photos of his precious newness.

and speaking of snagging photos.. i have a few sessions scheduled while i'm down there too for some super cute families. i get so excited for those. i even find myself thinking of different poses or ideas that would be cute in the middle of the night when i wake up to go tinkle. {tmi? sorry---just writing what comes to my little pregnant mind} we'll see if i can capture some of the things that have been racing through my brain. and i still have a couple spots open if any of you cuties want to do a session next week. my 1/2 off special is only going on a couple more weeks:)

ohhh jonnie's naps are so lovely. she is slowly stirring though so i better wrap things up so i can snuggle her as she comes to full consciousness. she is so scrumptious that little thing. until next time.


to sum up jonnie at the ranch

since pictures really do speak a thousand words... here is one that i will let do most of the talking! jonnie at the ranch. she.is.in.heaven.

**and if you haven't checked out my photography blog.. then head on over to my other blog to see the fun session i did in utah this weekend!
