Brooke, my little sister, came to live with us for the summer. It was awesome to have her here! Late night trash tv watching companion, babysitter, anthropologie discount giver, back up cook, basically it rocked. Things I learned about her while she was here- she's way more stylish than I am. I think I am, but then I see her and I'm like, shoot I'm kind of 2 years ago stylish. She has so much more energy and patience with my kids than me. She gets bored easily. Things she said she learned more about me- I'm more of a homebody than she thought (I wonder if 3 kids has anything to do with it?). I shower and get ready less than she thought. I cook good meals. I get stressed out more than she thought. I don't know that I made the greatest impression on her. Shoot. Being a mom is cool though Brooke, promise!
Wyatt is in his final stretch of medical school! HOORAY! He'll be done in May, and then I'll be able to call him Dr. (which is hot). He's had more sleepless nights than any one human should experience. His residency applications are in though, interviews are being set, and he's applying for Family Medicine programs. It suits him perfectly. He is a family man in every sense of the word. I am so proud! (and soooo happy to almost have a steady income again.)
Tate started Kindergarten and loves it. LOVES it. Has one loose tooth. This is starting to sound like a Christmas card, isn't it. Darn! I hate those kind. Well she's also taking dance, soccer, can read the encyclopedia, ran a marathon, and is class president. Kidding on those last couple. She's getting dramatic though. Every other day is the worst day ever.
Tuck is still happy. Just happy all the time. And he's getting hair! We've stopped with trying to diagnose him for the time being (I got a little burnt out from all the appointments). We'll pick it back up here soon though. His therapy, which he's currently doing 3x a week, is going very well! He's getting stronger really every week. He can crawl and cruise furniture now! Still a lot to be done for him, but he's been very healthy lately due to some changes in his medications, so we're thrilled. He just had a cold, and it was the first time he's ever had a cold and not been hospitalized for it! Stronger, see.
When Tuck sucks his finger there isn't anything I wouldn't give him.
Finn is crazy. Just a wild man. Still a total cuddler though, loves to be held and rocked. Walking, running, exploring. Just like any almost 18 monther. Loves to say stop, Tuck, Tate, K. We're growing his hair out, we'll see.
I became an Aunt, to a new baby girl! Bought my first purchase for a new bedroom (it's been the same since we've been married, and is the same bed I slept on when I was 12!) I went really big guys, new lamps. It's a slow process. I am loving working with Reichel at Copy Cat Chic (more on that later this week). And really, that's about it. Oh, and I hate my hair all of the sudden. Thinking about chopping it all off.
One loose tooth.
The day she decided to do 100 flips in a row on the tramp. Too much energy and no where to go.
Hitting up the cider mill down the street for warm donuts, weekly.
Ankle rolls with mocs. Such a good look.
And that's all folks!
