Rose & Co Blog: Welcome to the Club!

Welcome to the Club!

Well happy Monday to you!

Oh wait, it's Tuesday. This post was supposed to go up yesterday, but in true I can't get my shit together fashion...it didn't get scheduled properly!!

This weekend was one for the books, and I just wanted to pop in with a little life lately update and share what's been going on in the Rose household.

Friday, I came down with one of the worst stomach bugs I think I have ever had. I thought I would die! It was just a 24 hour thing but I was quarantined the entire time in hopes it didn't spread to Jake or Sawyer, and luckily, no one is showing any signs of being sick. Jake mentioned to me on Monday that he was feeling pretty queasy, but I think we'll just chalk that up to being overserved on football Sunday ;)



Saturday I was super weak and tired from being so sick the day before, but we had an appointment with a minivan and I was not going to miss it! Yeah, you read that right. Aint no shame in my mini van game! We are officially those parents and I couldn't be more proud. You guys, I don't care what people say about minivans, this thing is like first class inside. From the powersliding doors that I can control from the drivers seat, to the leg room and ease of putting babies in carseats, it literally doesn't get any more practical. I'll have to give you a full tour of the van sometime in the future, but let me just tell you, it doesn't suck.





On Sunday, we took my mother in law out to lunch and then my heart broke into 1000 pieces when Sawyer got his first hair cut!! I don't know what it is about a baby getting their first cut, but he is like 5 years old overnight. Not only does he look like such a big boy, but he is just acting like a totally different toddler. It's truly like he grew up in a blink. The haircut didn't go quite like we hoped...he screamed bloody murder the entire time. Until we got him a lollipop which turned into a blue, sticky, drooly mess that hair was sticking too. Glamorous day at the salon, ya'll.

But I can't even stop oversharing the pictures of him since his haircut. He is just too darn cute for words. I honestly think that sometimes my heart is going to break in half I love him so much.


Always has a stick in his hand. Such a boy!



In baby girl news, this pregnancy is just flying right on by. I'm going to post a full update for you on Friday, but we're almost 25 weeks, and heading right into the 99 day countdown. Other than an insane amount of clothes, we haven't purchased a thing, or even started fixing up the nursery, so we better get our acts together pretty soon here. It is so true what they say, when you're becoming a second time parent, everything feels like less of an emergency. I feel like it's all going to work itself out one way or another, and as long as we have some diapers and a carseat by her arrival we're golden!

We've been trying to teach Sawyer about baby sister, and he is very fascinated by my "button" so whenever he wants to see it we tell him baby sister is in there and ask him where his baby sissy is at. He couldn't give two flying you know whats, but hey, we're trying. I think we're both in denial that another baby is going to be here so soon. Since Sawyer is still so young, we vividly remember the first few weeks home (also known as hell-month in the world of parenting) and so we're trying to block out those memories and live in some ignorant bliss that we'll fall right into a routine and everything will be peachy!


As far as home updates, we had planned on completely remodeling our kitchen before the baby comes, but have decided to put that on hold until later in the year. The hospital bill that comes with birthing a child is no joke, and we're really practicing being debt free in 2017. So we've decided to take all we saved for the kitchen to pay that off and start from scratch. Bummer, I know, but we're going to fit in lots of "phase one" mini projects throughout the house to hold us over. First on the list is decorating this nursery and making it functional for 2 babies 18 months and younger, and then we'll move outside to do some sprucing up of our backyard and garden and some major toddler proofing of our deck before Spring comes and we spend every waking second outside or on the water. I also plan on a phase one mini-update of our master bathroom that is going to make me love it up there SO much more!

I can't believe this time last year we were just weeks away from putting an offer in on our dream house. We've almost lived there a year! I'm aching for warmer weather and celebrating our second summer on the water, nothing compares!

I guess I better wrap up this Sunday night word vomit, thanks for popping in as always :)

Until Next Time,

  1. Hi Kylie, I just love following your blog and updates. You give me lots of life goals to follow up to once my boyfriend and I are making those steps. I can only imagine how difficult it was, that first haircut. Thinking back about my cousins' children getting their first haircut, I as "auntie" already felt so weird - like, how long ago was this child still a baby!? They grow up so fast, it seemed like just yesterday I got a text of cousin telling me they had their firstborns. I am curious about how you'll baby proof your deck, I am sooo jealous of that. It looks so awesome to have that kind of space to relax and enjoy family evenings :) Wishing you a good last 100 days of pregnancy and happy days with your family!
