Smiley Cuteness and Frustration

Nya wouldn't nap this afternoon so she was just laying on the carpet while I worked and I realized that with all that bright natural light coming in our family room, I had to take some pictures of her.  I REALLY wish I had a natural light studio as I don't really like working with studio lights (but am thankful for them on rainy/dark days).  I keep waiting for her to sit before I get some more pictures of her in her new etsy outfits (oh man, it's a business write off right?!).  But, I think this age is sooooo cute to get pictures of too.  Besides, I hadn't used this purple blanket yet:)  So here she is on our living room floor....
**I do want to say that although the pictures are almost always of Nya, it's because she's so smiley and she doesn't run away when I pull out my camera!**

Isn't she the cutest thing ever?!    I've said that a million times:)

Other things to take note of:

1.  I bought an iPhone.  Yup.  Go me!   And without a warranty, which is maybe not the smartest thing with Koen in the house but I couldn't justify it.  Also, the cell phone people may have said my phone and plan were dinosaurs.   PS Gary fixed the laptop he broke.  Took it apart and put it back together (minus 3 screws) and it worked.

2.  I did a photo session during the day today and I loved it. Hired a babysitter (sister).  So nice to get out during the day by myself!!

3.  I've been on meds since Monday.  I'm mostly frustrated that all the work I've done with running since July has gone down the tubes.  I ran for 2 minutes yesterday to try it out and my heart rate went over 200 bpm.  Not really safe.  I'm thankful that so far I'm not that bad just soooooo exhausted as though I'm pregnant with triplets or something.  Just frustrated to start this process all over again.  Boo.  It's the worst in the morning.  I wake up sweating, heart pounding  and feeling really anxious.  Boo again.. Oh well, could be worse!

I hope you've had a good week!
Love, Louise

    Hey Louise, just an idea, have you thought to get a lifeproof case for your iphone? I have one for Micah's ipad, water, dirt, snow, and shock proof:) So far it works awesome! I think they are about $65though. Maybe with Koen it is worth the investment?
    I will continue to pray that your health improves. Have a great weekend,

  3. Stephani, that was the one I was just looking at tonight!

  11. Yup, these are the times when it`s both awesome and difficult to read your blog (well, look at the pictures I mean). You know what I mean, I hope... in an envious, but joyful at the same time kind of way. Nya is sooooo awesome! Boo to the health stuff though.
