It’s been a long time since my last goals post – such a busy summer and I’m so sad to see it go! We spent so much time at the pool, the beach, and the doctor trying to get mr. man’s skin under control. It was amazing that the pool was what helped his eczema the most. After seeing a dermatologist and a new allergist and with full allergy testing last week, we now know that he has no allergies. I honestly couldn’t believe it. His allergist is awesome and said that the allergies would definitely show up at 3 so now we know that it is not an allergy. The dermatologist has been awesome and we’ve seen the biggest improvement after seeing her. So thankful that little man’s skin has been better and I know he is too!
I’ve been trying to document this pregnancy so as you can see in this post, I’ve shared a few. The first two my mom took for me (thank you!) in her backyard and the next one I used the camera timer which really feels like a miracle if you get one in focus using the timer! We spent this past weekend at the beach with friends who snapped a few for us so I’m excited to see those, too. We got to see little brother this week and he was just rocking and rolling in there – she was having a hard time trying to get his heart but he finally calmed down for a few minutes. Can’t wait to meet him and see his little personality and what a good big brother Owen will be. (Ok, I’m going to start crying here.) I am sooo excited about this baby. I need to block facebook at night because I look at way too many newborn hats and ready to ship sales. They just pop up everywhere on my newsfeed and I just have to look at all the sweet baby stuff.
I am really sad to see summer go. I felt like it went by sooo quickly which really did help since I haven’t felt all that great so far during this pregnancy. Getting out and working always seems to help me feel better so THANK YOU to everyone who kept me busy this summer. I will say, I am definitely looking forward to cooler temperatures, fall, and pumpkins. I may have already had a pumpkin spice latte.
Owen went to his first day of preschool today (sniff, sniff) I will miss him these mornings but I know he is going to have so much fun! He has the sweetest teachers and it sounds like they have so many fun things planned! (I will be sharing a few photos soon of his Meet the Teacher Day)
Okay, goals for September:
1.Finish Back to School Shopping for Owen – he has worn sandals all summer so I need to find some sneakers…and he has to pack a back up pair at school too.
2.Start planning Holiday Mini Sessions. This year I will be offering one day of Free Holiday Mini Sessions (One free image per child – additional images can be purchased.) when you book a 2014 family session. If you have already booked a 2014 family session, you have a spot! These are the only mini sessions I will be offering. All fall weekend dates have been booked for 2013. I only have two newborn spots available and a limited number of weekdays available.
3. I have so much work to do on going through Owen’s clothes, toys, etc to get ready for this baby. I need to figure out if our car seat has expired, look into a double stroller, and try to figure out where everything has been stored (the swing, exersaucer, etc) I have forgotten how much baby stuff there is. Any recommendations are welcome!
Okay, off to finish editing Back to School Mini Sessions this week and I have a fun session planned tonight! Looking forward to all of the sessions in the next few weeks.
