Rory Eve, Ryder Amelia

stinkers. plural.

Alright, folks. It has been a while.

I apologize.

But! Good news!

We’re in our new place and I FINALLY have my desktop set up!

So you shall now have lots of entertainment via the Stinkers, Rory and Ryder.

And I want you to know that they are DEFINITELY still stinkers. Probably more so than usual. I blame all the time with the grandparents these past few weeks.

Y’all won’t believe this, but Ryder is actually more of a stinker than Rory these days.

Yes! You read that correctly!

She is a pulling up, “no”-saying fool. She’s into everything and is proud of it.


Those are stinker faces if I’ve ever seen one.

Oh! And she totally ate dirt for the first time. I was praying for a kid who thought things were “yucky” but no such luck apparently.


What have we been up to the past few weeks?

I know you are dying to know.

Well, for starters, we went to the zoo!

And we went swimming almost every day with Telena and her family.

And basically just hung out around my parents’ house all the time. Rory and Ryder LOVED that they could stand and look out of the window at all the birds and squirrels. They just had such a great time staying with their Mimi and Papa.

The only picture I have of them together… I will try harder this week to get some cute pics of them matching and the like again.

So, want to hear a good Stinker story before I go?

Yes, I’m referring to The Original Stinker or Stinker #1.

Last week Andy went out of town on a business trip to Atlanta.

Side note: I’m starting to think he plans these things to happen at the worst times. Seriously! What gives?! We’ve been away from each other for a month already and he has a business trip for a week after that! Maybe I should talk to his boss… HA! Kidding.


On Wednesday, Rory and I were playing in the living room with stickers. I looked away for literally one second to read a text and Rory says, “Wook Mom! I got a sticker in my nose!”.

Well, I look up in there and I don’t see anything. So I thought, with her being two, that she was probably just saying that.

A couple of minutes later, she starts freaking out a little saying she needed to get that sticker out of her nose. So, I start to look in there again and it starts bleeding. I still can’t see it and blood is flowing at a steady pace and I’m trying not to freak out.

Well then it starts REALLY bleeding. I call my mom, Andy, my sister, etc to see what I should do. My mom was the only person I could get a hold of and she said it would come out and to just wait, basically.

After I get off of the phone with my mom, Rory starts saying, “ohhhh it tickle me! It tickle!” and was giggling a lot.

Then all of a sudden she starts sneezing.

She sneezes, no lie, at least 50 times. Blood is coming out every time and I’m trying real hard not to freak out.

Well, Rory gives one final, huge sneeze and BAM!

That dang sticker came out and was SMILING AT ME! The nerve!

So yes, if you were wondering, Rory is still up to her usual antics…

and on top of that I have a one year old named Ryder who is following in her sister’s footsteps and is probably going to give me a run for my money even more than Rory ever did.

These kids.

They are trying to break me.

They are trying to make me squirm.

But, too bad, suckers!

I’m in this for the long haul!

(If you would please pray for my sanity without letting them know, that’d be wonderful. Thank you very much.)

Have a great week!

  1. Ha Ha…so needed that laugh today. Just wait…Riley and Olivia put play dough up their noses and I didn’t think I’d ever get it out. There will never be a dull moment as long as we have kids.

I love hearing from y'all! Leave a comment below!
