Three Ladies & Their Gents: Winter 2019 Edition

Rob


Mostly the man's been working. Then he comes home and helps with the kids. Pretty much he's busy and has his hands full. Is it lame that that's about all that's going on with him? He definitely the simplest member of the family as far as his routine and his daily life, but all that he does is pretty dang important.

Becca


I'm almost 2 month postpartum so how do you think I'm doing? Hormones are a killer. Actually I think I'm the most level-headed this time around than I have been. Maybe having the shop has helped give me a bit more balance. It allows me to be a stay at home mom but also have things outside of that while also being able to contribute to the income. It has really helped I'm sure. That definitely doesn't mean I have it all together because I'm still quite the hot mess. But I'm keeping busy and just doing my best knowing that this phase of my life won't last forever. But I'm keeping busy as a mom and as a shop owner, and working on finding balance and getting control over my messy house by cleaning and decluttering and everything in between.

Addison


This girl is a rockstar. She is loving school and she's doing great. She has friends. She is reading chapter books. She is just doing an awesome job. She's also a great big sister. Of course her and Connor go at each other but that's just what siblings do. But she does love him and she adores her baby sister. She tells us often that she wanted a sister and then we got one. It always makes me chuckle. The other day she told me that she wants to be author and illustrator when she grows up. And truthfully that girl can be anything she wants to be; she has a brilliant mind. It's pretty awesome to see all that she knows and how fast she picks up things. She is reading like crazy. She's writing and spelling. She's doing basic math which includes some subtraction. She's just rocking this school thing and keeping her teacher on her toes making sure she is being challenged and having enough to do.

Connor


This boy is something else. And he's about to be three! It's hard to believe he is almost old enough to actually be in preschool! He's supposed to still be my little baby boy. He's not supposed to be old enough to go to school. Although I'm thinking if there was any of my kids that I would need to homeschool, it would be this one. I keep joking with Rob that we need to cut the cord. He is obsessed with mama and there are days that I literally can't get farther than two feet away from him before he freaks out that I'm going to leave him. And yes, he does regularly say "mama, don't leave me." But he's doing good otherwise. He's bright and talking like crazy. We are working on potty training slowly now. He's just an active little spunky boy.

Emma


This girl is about to be 2 months! She's doing good. She's had some major congestion lately with a bit of a cough because of the drainage. She hasn't had a fever which is good but the poor girl doesn't feel great. But she is smiling now. She is still eating great. She's sleeping pretty good - better when she doesn't have congestion. We are still trying to find the balance around here and she's not always great about letting me put her down for naps during the day but we are getting there slowly.

Stella


Stella's been mostly just creeping around the house, taking naps, and looking for someone to pet her. What else does a cat spend her days doing? Actually she is doing good. For the last few months of my pregnancy we had to keep a calming collar on her because she had some major eye drainage (or eye goop as we call it which gets worse when she's stressed) and she was licking a lot. We kept a collar on her and it definitely helped. After Emma was born when Stella's last collar's month was up, we decided to give it a try without the collar and she's been doing great. We are happy that things have settled down for her and we don't have to keep her in the collar, and I'm sure she's glad too.
