This semester has been a doozy! School was busy, life was busy, Ben was busy, basically the one word that sums up this semester is busy. The one thing that always made me slow down was Brynlee (most of the time). I try really hard not to work on homework when she's awake, sometimes I do though and she's totally fine with it and she entertains herself with lots of books, toys, and simply exploring. Brynlee is growing up so fast and has developed quite the little personality. She can be either a little sweetie or a total spitfire. God help us when she's a teenager! But seriously most of the time she's great. She's LOVES hanging out with me in the kitchen and helping me "clean". Mainly she's obsessed with the dishwasher and thinks it's just amazing. She's walking up a storm now. She's actually much better at running then walking. When she runs she goes pretty far and fast before she falls, but when she walks slow it definitely takes her a lot longer to get anywhere. She also has developed a love of screaming. She screams with joy when she is happy and excited. It's so funny to watch, but I feel bad for our neighbors.
Other than Brynlee and school I've really committed to fulfilling my desire to gain a skill in photography and educate myself. I've gotten a lot of experience over the last couple of weeks. I've had 2 couples shoots, 2 families, and 2 maternity session. And next week I'm doing a senior session with my beautiful sister in law! It's been busy, but I have to say I have loved doing each one of these and have been able to learn a lot. One thing expect the unexpected because it will happen, children and snow last...30-45minutes tops so you better hurry and be hilarious. I can't wait to do more!! I'm happy to have a hobby once again, or at least something that makes my brain work a little hard :)
