Two Ladies & Their Gents: Summer 2017 Edition

Hey it's time for another check in with your favorite beautiful mess family.


Rob



That favorite fella of mine has been busy. He was a crab catching fool on vacation - catching a big dead one in the water, an impossible to see one on a walk down the beach and a moderately big one on a late family crab catching session. He also catch a seahorse that happened to float by him on a piece of seaweed. And he did all this with limited vision since his contact ripped on the first day of vacation. But seriously he's been good. He's been amazing almost moving our whole house aka our lives himself (with the help of my dad and some movers who only moved our big furniture). And he did all this while working on a big project with an impossible deadline at work. He's been working like crazy this days then coming home and moving boxes and tubs around for me at home then entertaining the kiddos and doing kid bedtime every night. I have said it before and I will continue to say it - the man is superman!

Becca



So it turns out moving after having knee surgery isn't the easiest thing in the world, but I held my own. Well me and knee brace that is. I have mostly been spending my time unpacking these days and trying to break some habits the kids have developed since things have been crazy in the last few months. It's just been a heck of a few months. My shop produces a couple sales a week - which I will gladly accept - so I have stuff to do there. I have recently been spending a lot of time doing some craft journaling, plus my bullet journal and I have even lately picked up doodling (I'll share all about that soon). I have been doing a mix of unpacking and journaling and stretching my leg out.

Addison



This little girl has been wearing on me lately but maybe that just means chaos has reigned for too long and it's time to go back to school. She has adjusted great to the new house and had a blast at the beach. She has been spending a lot of time playing and running like a madwoman around the house. Apparently she likes the house. She did tell me that she's excited about going back to school in a couple weeks.

Connor


This little boy goes back and forth from needy and clingy to extremely independent. He's adjusted great to the new house too and may have even loved the beach more than big sis. He's definitely a little water bug. I feel like I just talked about him the other day with him just turning 17 months but he's doing great. He's on the move and all over the place. He's trying to do more talking which puts my mind at ease about another speech delay. He's just about the happiest little boy in world and just kind of goes with it.

Stella



Stella has definitely had a harder time adjusting to the new house - more on that later. She's been out of sorts for months now with boxes being packed then us gone altogether on vacation. But she's dealing and was definitely happy to have her favorite person (Connor) back again.
