Aubrey walks!

Well, just a little. Tonight we were at Mike & Julianne's and Mike and Jared sat on the floor coaxing Aubrey to walk between them. She finally got the hang of it taking a couple steps by herself a few times. I'm sure it won't be too long! Julianne got it on video and hopefully I can get it from her soon.

New Office!

In trying to get organized and the house cleaned up for the holidays (and baby proofing) we've been trying to figure out what to put in our sunroom and what to take out. We just got rid of the 2 white beds that I used for photography and for extra seating. They were just making the room look too small and they weren't portable enough to use for photos, so they're gone. The computer area was a source of frustration as Aubrey likes to pull herself up and play with the keyboard and everything on the desk, which is quite small, therefore everything is at the edge. So I knew it needed to be moved and needed a solution. I moved it into the little nook of the room which is actually and entrance to the front sunroom area, but since that's storage I put a bookshelf in the doorway to block it off and put my desk beside it. Now I have way more storage space for things that I didn't have room on the little desk for. Plus I can put up a baby gate across the front of the office area as it's only 4 feet wide. It's little, but does the trick. Now I just need to find a wooden baby gate that is wall mounted - anyone have one? The wardrobe that use to be where the bookshelf is now has been moved beside the freezer and holds all my photography props plus 2 lights - so now I can safely put them out of the way!

Also, I just got new props! The Empress was having a staff furniture sale today and tomorrow and so we bought an old leather arm chair that is quite whimsical that was from the Bengal Lounge, an ottoman and an upholstered rectangle stool - all for $40. I'm very excited about the leather chair as it will be great for a formal portrait, newborn baby, small child or for maternity.

Surgery was a success!

Yesterday I had my wisdom teeth removed plus 4 fillings. Only one of my 4 teeth removed is swollen as they had to cut the tooth/gum to remove it, so that's not too bad. I'm sick of eating soft foods and want some good food - it's our ward Christmas Dinner tonight too! Oh, well I can't complain too much!

It's finally happening . . .

Well, I've put it off for long enough and now next Thursday I'm getting my wisdom teeth pulled. After many toothaches this past month I finally went to the dentist today and it was decided that they have to come out. One has a cavity and one is half missing - there's just no more room in my mouth! They are going to knock me out and pull all 4 teeth and do as many fillings etc. at the same time in a 2.5 hour time period. I don't want my mouth being opened for any longer as last time I was worked on for 4 hours straight and my jaw hurt for a month. Hopefully this time will be better! So wish me luck!
