Life Lately

 Hey loves. Happy oh what day is it? Happy Thursday. It has been a crazy (I used a different word in my head that is not oh so appropriate for kids). The kids went back to school this week after a wild Spring Break some fun, great weather, and not so great stuff. I had planned to get my life back, do stuff around the house, jump back into a routine... yeah that did happen because someone else had a different plan for me. I will thank my kids for passing on their wonderful sickness to Brian and myself. We didn't end up with strep but some virus that knocked me on my butt for 2 and a half days and Brian is still over here struggling with tonsillitis. 

Today I am sharing some quick updates for everyone. So much has been going on and if you don't read my Our Week posts (which can be long, are randomly shared sometimes ever posted on weekends) you may not know what is going on. Let's start youngest to oldest


  • Knock on wood we are potty trained about 90% of the time. She is resistant to go poop on the potty but we are working on it. She also is still in a diaper at night, but that is our next goal.
  • Anna has been in the less than 1 percentile for her weight. She had a bunch of blood work done and saw a pediatric dietician to give us ideas and goals. Her goal was to be 28 pounds by the time she turns 4 which is in July. She has hit her goal. She is just going to be small. 

  • Anna has turned into my little helper for everything in the kitchen. I can't grab the cutting board or flour to feed my sourdough starter without her pulling up her chair to help. 


  • Austin has had glasses since right before Christmas. We are on frame number 3 already. The spring on the first pair broke and couldn't be fixed. The second hair got broke at his first baseball practice when a kid threw a ball and hit him in the face.
  • Austin is excited to play baseball this year, even with getting hit in the face. This year his age is coach pitch.

  • Austin lost his two front teeth


  • Ella has been doing all the extra curricular from drama, cooking class, art club, Girl Scouts, service club, and I feel like I am forgetting something. Before Spring Break it felt like she was never home after school with all the different activities. They are ending for the year and she says she isn't going to do as many next year because she is never home. 
  • In December Ella did not pass her hearing test at the doctors office after not passing two different hearing tests at school. In January we got her in with an ENT and audiologist to do more tests. It has been determined that part of both her ears internally did not form properly and on her left side she has moderate hearing loss. She has gone through a bunch of tests, and lots of doctor appointments for this. She has been a trooper through all of it. We went yesterday for a follow up from her first hearing test and in 3 months she hasn't had any more hearing loss so we follow up in 6 months. 


  • Brian is a realtor and he is staying pretty busy. Even with crazy life he makes time every night to read Austin his bedtime story, or Austin reads it to him.

  • Brian did an awesome job on our remodel of the dining room. From tearing down wallpaper to adding wainscoting. He got it all up before hosting Easter. The white still needs a final coat and a few touch-ups but I love the way it turned out. 


  • I am loving the new superblock of the 21 Day Fix program. It is revamped, real time, with awesome music. The other day was Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. I am loving the way I am feeling with getting in 30 minute workouts. I have more energy to get through the day.
  • I have fallen in love the sourdough. Taking the time for the dough to rise, usually overnight, the process of kneading, resting, and all the things you can make out of sourdough. At least once a week I make an artisan loaf. My favorite so far is bagels and banana muffins. 
Hopefully things slow down a little bit and we get back to a good routine. How are you doing right now?
