34 WEEKS!!!!

This post is for Audrey!
She's been asking for some pictures for a while & here they are!
I am now 34 weeks.
My due date is June 27.
Everything is still going really well. Things are running really smoothly like the last pregnancy. I went a day early with Chloe so who knows what will happen this time? I am definitely getting lots of swelling, especially from being on my feet all day. The time is going too quickly I haven't had enough time to get things done..... so hopefully things will come together these next few weeks. The crib should be here this next week. We "kind of" have a name picked out but haven't told anyone because it's not for sure. Sorry, people you may just have to wait until she is born. Chloe doesn't really know what is going on. She can say "baby" but doesn't get much more than that.... at least from what I can see? She definitely could use someone to play with, so I am excited for that. As for school, well...... I am just taking it as it comes. I worked up until the day I had Chloe & never missed a day... so hopefully the same goes for this baby. My instructor is allowing for 6 weeks maternity but I am not planning on anything until she is here safely. I am so blessed to have such great pregnancies.

Lots have been asking me if I am still enjoying hair school.
Well here's the update:
I do have to admit that it's been a crazy month with projects, assignments & tests but so so so worth it. Not only has it been crazy busy with all of that stuff but I've also been working really hard at becoming an advance student. There are a ton of requirements (so many different hair cuts, styles, perms, colors, facials, scalp treatments, manicures, nails, pedicures, finger waves, hair extensions, braids, dreadlocks, cleaning & styling wigs, etc) that you have to do, a huge test (ten pages front & back that takes about 3-4 hours) & an interview. Since we received our stuff to get started I made some goals to get it done ASAP so that I could be advance before the baby comes....
WELL, I am an advance student!!! So what does that mean??? Well, first off I don't have to wear the ugly maroon color of smock & now get to wear black (that looks so much better)!, People pay more money to have an advance student work on them, but it also means a little more pressure to do everything right even if it is a cut or style I have never done. But there is also a lot pressure that is gone knowing that I have met all of those requirements. Now the only requirements I have to meet are the State requirements which include 200 perms, so many hair cuts, colors, 40 finger waves & of course my 2000 Hours.
I think I am right on track with everything. I try to do at least 20 perms a week, so that while I am down with the baby that I won't get too far behind.
Not only has it been crazy with becoming advance but I feel like the last two weeks especially have been different. First reason.... I went to school like any other day & next thing I know I am at the mortuary doing hair. Lucky me I was nominated for that project out of 40 something students. Then last week I got nominated to do the "mean ladies" hair because her regular student was going to be out of town. I was pretty nervous for this lady that is supposedly so mean.... but all in all everything went really well (thank goodness). She loved her perm, cut & style.

Here are some pictures from school so far.

My super good friend Katie let us use her for the fantasy up-do contest. Whitney & I had great plans to do an awesome octopus but found out hours before that there was another team with the same idea.... so with little time & brainstorming we pulled off a rainbow. The picture doesn't do it justice. Either way it was lots of fun!!
Katie also let me use her for my class demonstration in front of all the other students. We did a bunch of bling strands in one place & coordinated some feathers, it looked awesome.... Katie you're the best! If anyone wants bling strands or feathers let me know, I have tons of fun colors:)

Since day 1 the 4 of us have just kind of clicked. Kenzie from Delta, Emily from Vegas, Whitney from Cedar/Delta & me. We had so much fun at the hair show in Sandy a couple of weeks ago.

Whit & I decided that we both needed a new style & was brave enough to let a stylist take over. I thinking we both just felt like we needed some type of change where we're both pregnant.

Whitney got the cutest bangs & layers. I got some serious Justin Beiber bangs that didn't want to part the way she wanted...:)

More Pics of Chloe
her 15 month Check up

Chloe's is definitely staying busy & is everywhere. She has so much energy I struggle to keep up with her. This last week we visited the doctor & had another routine check up. She also had to get two shots:( (she didn't even cry though:))
Here are the stats:
Weight- 20.05 (13%)
Height- 31 3/4 (84%)
HC- 48 cm (93%)
She's doing great & growing on the chart. Looks like she's still following the tall, skinny trend.

-Chloe is still trying new foods.
-She still loves her raisins & would prefer them over any meal.
-She loves her sippy cup especially when she occasionally gets punch.
-She's like her daddy & loves all breakfast foods (pancakes, french toast, etc)
-She loves to give kisses & wave.
-She loves to look & smell the flowers.
-Loves jumping on the trampoline.
-Just loves being outside.
-Loves her trips to St. George (on Saturdays) so she can play with the twins.
-Loves nursery!!! Yay, we can try & enjoy at least 1-2 hours of church now. At least for a couple weeks until we get our new addition:)
-Has added Sesame street to her favorites.
-Now has 6 teeth & two more breaking through.

It's been so nice having Chase back from tax season. Those two have definitely been busy on the weekends while I've been at school.

Playing at Discovery Park. She likes the tunnels, slides & also enjoys eating the wood chips :)
