I'm Alive I Swear!

Yea that picture pretty much sums up how I feel right now -- like I got hit by a truck! I have some nasty cold or something that is kicking my butt good! But I still wanted to give everyone a little update on what's going on in the Armendinger household :)

We had Little Man two week check up today and he is doing GREAT! He weighs 8lbs now and has hit every mild stone a two week old is supposed to hit -- which isn't much lol. But our one glitch is he has thrush. We had to switch him to Dr Brown bottles, he was getting a little too gassy and it was causing him some tummy aches.

I have been doing GREAT -- other then being sick lol. I found out today that I have to get a mole removed from my head next Tuesday :( I swear I cannot win with things on my body lately. First my gallbladder has to be removed and now this. I am just ready to be back to my 100% feeling good self. I have a 3 year old and a 15 day old to take care of, I cannot be sick!!

Another thing I have been struggling with is what I want to do with my photography business once I am all healed up from my gallbladder surgery. I loooooove taking pictures, but right before I left for maternity leave it was really starting to feel like "work" to me and not what it used to feel like. I looooove taking pictures, and I love taking pictures for people, but I don't know if I want to do it all the time any more. I think I am going to cut way back on how many sessions I take on a month and stop doing weddings completely! I wish I could devote more time to my non-profit organizations that I am involved in (like OpLove), those sessions NEVER feel like work to me. I just wish more people knew about OpLove here. Maybe that is something I will look into... Getting the word out in this area about it :)

Well this blog post got a little rambly. We are all alive and well over here in good'ole Central Georgia :) Still trying to get used to having a 3 year old and a 15 day old, but thankful for my wonderfully crazy life. It really doesn't get much better then this :)

Yeah, once your passion becomes "work" it's not fun anymore and you sometimes need to step back, re-evaluate and figure out what you need to do to make it fun and enjoyable.

I'm planning on getting a camera (a dSLR) in a couple months, so if you're up for it I'd love to have you help me learn how to use it!

Sorry you don't feel well and glad Jayce is doing so well! I know of at least 3-4 people who were looking to do oplove while you were on maternity leave. People want to, trust me! :)

"OMGsh hun I am so sorry you are going through all of this :( I really hope that you start to feel better again soon! I cannot even begin to imagen what you are going though. I have yet to be seen on base, but I have heard that they suck and it kinda scares me to make an appt. Like I am actually scared to get sick! I really hope that this new doctor will be better for you and you will be back to your old self! Just keep your chin up and stay strong :)"

Thanks for the comment brooke, I appreciate it. I hope if you do go on base you get a good doctor, maybe it was just the one I had...

Go to the health food store and get gentian violet for the thrush! It is all that got rid of Kanes. The meds dont always cut it! It'll make him purple in his mouth, but its sooo worth it bc its natural and it works GREAT!!!
