Fake Blog Entries: Part One! 🌷

@oakbelle, @melia22, @BeeEl, @kiomkio, @CherryBomb50, @Kathweenie, @venbela, @ArrowTheMonarch, @Julie_NameNerd, and @snowmaiden … Sorry for the tags, but I just wanted to update, I’ve decided to change the name of this thread, as it’s been something that has been bothering me for a while! Instead of “~fake blog entries for all of us/scenarios associated with names!”, it will now be called “Fake Blog Entries: Part One! :tulip:

I just wanted to update so it’s not confusing, and figured it’d make sense to tag those who have posted in the last few months! [name_f]Hope[/name_f] you all understand <3


Thanks [name_f]Mollie[/name_f]! I get why it was bothering you :sweat_smile:


Time has flied with this pregnancy, and between the morning sickness, Sarah-Claire being mobile, and [name_f]Georgie[/name_f] starting 4th grade, I haven’t had much time to post! Somehow, I’m already 34 weeks with baby #3! We know the gender, but we have decided not to say anything as to not be overwhelmed with blue or pink everything. We do have a name though, so I’ll call them baby L!
Today, we got to see them in 3D with [name_f]Georgie[/name_f] and SC. It was so cool, and it was the first time that little lady really understood what she was seeing at an ultrasound now that she’s 1 1/2! Here’s baby L being so cute even before they’re born.
Now that I’ve had a whole 8 months to process a third baby, I’m doing so much better! I can’t wait to see them grow up with SC so close in age, to see [name_f]Georgie[/name_f] be the best big sister all over again, and to see [name_m]Ronan[/name_m] be the best father. We already love you so much wee little L!

Now that I’ve gushed about the littlest member of the family, I should probably talk about my amazing oldest girl [name_f]Georgie[/name_f]. Like I said earlier, she’s now in 4th grade (how? just how?) and she’s still got such a cottagecore style! She’s still very shy, but she’s slowly starting to open up to more and more people. She’s still besties with Miss [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f], but she’s now very close with [name_f]Gwen[/name_f], [name_m]Beckett[/name_m], [name_f]Catrin[/name_f], and [name_f]Zelda[/name_f]! She still has the closest relationship with both [name_m]Dacre[/name_m] and [name_m]Ronan[/name_m]. She’s been reading so much lately, and she has been drawing a lot as well. I love you, [name_f]Georgie[/name_f] girl!

And now for our soon to be middle child (it feels crazy saying that! SC was just born yesterday, right?!). Sarah-Claire is running everywhere she goes now, and I think it’s safe to say she’s a toddler now. Her hair has gotten long enough for pigtails, and her big blue eyes are definitely here to stay. As far as her spunky personality goes, she certainly hasn’t lost it, and she is still so social with everyone she sees!

SC rocking her pigtails!

Thank you for reading about my little family if you made it this far! I’m just so happy with the way life is ending up right now, and we’re all doing so well.


@Larryisalittledog Im so exicted to find out the gender of baby #3!!
@melia22 I’m glad you all had fun at the beach!
@BeeEl Disney is so fun, I hope you all had a blast! Can you tell me your kiddos names again? (I’m so sorry, but I don’t think you have posted in a while)

Hi! A lot has happened since my last post! We bought a house and we know the gender of Baby #2! The house is gorgeous!

We didn’t have an official gender reveal, I just asked my mom to make a cake with the color in it and we cut into the cake just the 3 of us.

I also have to add how amazing and delicious this cake was! Thanks mom!!
I had to pick my mom and dad up from the airport and Cami wanted to come but as soon as we got them she was tired and just wanted to ride on the suitcase :joy:

I am about 18 weeks pregnant as of yesterday and I’m so exicted!!

We just started thinking about names and we want her middle name to be Annette but we have no idea on the first name, help!


@CharlotteLovesVolley Welcome and congrats on your pregnancy!
@Larryisalittledog Congratulations on your marriage, happy birthday to Sarah-Claire, and congrats on your pregnancy as well!! Baby will be so loved (and so close with SC - my own brother and I are 14 months apart and we are super close, he’s like a built-in best friend!)
@melia22 Welcome!! Your little girl is adorable but I am captivated by your tiny hamster :joy: the cutest!
@BeeEl Disney looks like so much fun!! I’d love to take ours to Disney someday when the little ones are old enough to remember it!! Although I do think Roo would get in free right now, which is a perk.
@readingreverie This is a welcome change, that was throwing me off too!!

We’ve been having a nice, chill summer over here! Teddy has been surfing non-stop with Will while the kids and I play at the beach. On hotter days we just hang out in the kiddie pool in our yard. Teddy turned 11 recently and he’s still such a chill little dude. He loves to play Fortnite with his friends, but thankfully he’s not the type to get worked up over it and tends to just roll with the punches!

Roo turned 18 months old!

Rufus is such a smart little guy! Already talking in 2-3 word sentences, which blows my mind - none of the other kids were at his age. He’s a very independent little dude as well, and doesn’t want our help with anything, which means getting out the door takes about twenty minutes :sweat_smile:

That’s all for us! As the kids get older I’ve got fewer updates, so I’ll probably be on to a new family sometime soon (which is crazy because I started this family a year ago - time flies!)


I’m so looking forward to introducing myself and my family to the blog! :rainbow:

My lovely husband, Simon, and I have three girls: Alcott June (6), Favor Elouise (4), and Merit Rosalie (8mo). Our two pups are Oatmeal (4, a Golden Retriever) and Persimmon “Percy” (1, an Irish Wolfhound), and we also have several kitties!

Here are a few pictures of our girls. . .

Alcott this past spring, the original muse for my photography business, modeling for my photoshoots like she has since she was in utero! This was right after we got our runner ducks and found out they were huge fans of the hose, which of course turned Cotty into a fan too!

Favor this spring! She wasn’t the biggest fan of the idea of having a hose sprayed above her while she held an umbrella, but she decided that sitting in a bowl of water would work too! Anything makes for a good photoshoot, so long as Fizzy has that cheesy grin!

Our little Merry, back at the tail end of April, laying in a bed of wildflowers. She was fascinated with pulling at them while she bathed in the sun that day. Oh, Merit! She’s so gentle and content, but she has the silliest, earthy laugh!

We’ve occasionally been described as “homesteaders,” although we don’t technically follow the rules to qualify! We do, however, live in the country in a house with lots of land, spend a lot of time outdoors, and have many animals—cats, chickens, dogs, and ducks! Our home is a twenty-minute drive from our parents, close enough for Friday visits, fun trips to the zoo, and swimming lessons.

We’ve lived in our house since before I was pregnant with Alcott, and it has been such a haven and safe space for all of us. From the door we first walked through as a newly married couple, the same one I walked through to tell Simon I was pregnant, the very same one we brought all of the girls home through, to the backyard that leads right into the woods, filled with animals and flowers and our girls toys and dress-up clothes, it is all a zoo, one we thrive and love in.

Our girls are so wild, so cheesy, and so cheerful, and I wouldn’t trade them for the world. Our Alcott, who is always pondering, always reading, searching for new information. Our Favor, who is such a free-spirit, constantly getting into messes, finding new ways to play, creating her own art. Our Merit, who is so quiet and so gentle, content to watch her sisters all day long, happy to be outside listening to the birds sing. Oh, my girls.

Simon is the most patient and adoring father I have ever seen, and I am so lucky that our girls’ get to call him their daddy. He’s a soccer player with an adventurer’s heart and is the most nurturing and doting man I have ever met. As for me, I primarily stay at home with my girls, but I do have a photography business that I opened when I became pregnant with Alcott—something I had always done on the side but never taken seriously until then. We are so lucky to be living this life.

And that’s our family!
I’ll probably be posting again soon; we’ve got a lot to share as we officially finished the girls rooms, something we’ve been working on for the past few months! I hope you’re all well. :white_heart:


@melia22 What sweet pictures! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
@Larryisalittledog Can’t wait to see your little one!
@CharlotteLovesVolley Yup! I need to post a little more consistently (it’s been way too long in part 2 also :see_no_evil:) I’ve got 5 kiddos. The twins are 7, Rainey May (older twin) and Windy April. We adopted Charlotte July a few months ago. I call her Loie since that’s what she prefers! (she’s 4 and her middle name was Zoe) Alton Ryder is the only boy; he’s 3. And Merrily June was born a few months ago! I call her Miri a lot. She’s almost 3 months! Wow! She’s too big! What a beautiful house!!
@kiomkio Yes! Such a perk! We got Miri in free, but Alton is 3, so he had to be payed for, but no regrets of course. He loved it and was smiling the whole time. :laughing:
@readingreverie Welcome! What beautiful girls and beautiful names!

Hello! I hope you’re all having a lovely week!
We haven’t had a whole lot to do. Rainey started jazz classes this week and she loves them so much! She’s doing Summer ballet, tap, and jazz now, so they won’t have a recital or anything, but she’s always excited to see her dance friends. I feel like Windy may not like dance as much, which makes me so sad since the twins have done it together for so many years. She said that she wants to do ballet next year, but not tap, and she wants to do more art classes. I’m glad she’s at least not quitting completely and she’s picking up a new hobby.

my girlies!

Loie is done with swim lessons, but I’ve been taking her to the pool every week to practice her skills. She tends to make a new friend every time and we’ve been able to keep in touch with a few. Exciting news though! We got in contact with Loie’s biological mother and we were able to get in touch with Loie’s older sister! They’re going to see each other next week! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Here’s a picture her biological mom sent me:

little loie!


Alton is still happy ranting about Disney. :joy: He wants to go back so bad, good to know he enjoyed it! He has his last soccer game next week, which he’s mostly sad about. In his words, he’s “excited-sad-mad,” so I think that’s good? Maybe? 3 year olds still confuse me. DH put hair gel in Alton’s hair yesterday and the girls couldn’t stop laughing. :rofl:

little gentleman


Miss M is almost 3 months! It’s pretty early, but yesterday she hit a milestone! I’m sad-happy (in Alton’s words, of course) She laughed, and she has the cutest laugh ever! I can’t get over it :face_holding_back_tears:

miri ma'am

Have an amazing day!!


@readingreverie welcome! your girls are just stunning - as are their names!

something super exciting happened today!!

as of today we officially have a walker!!! we knew this day had been coming for a while, she was starting to be able to hold herself up a stand on her own. we knew it was nearing closer to the day she’d be taking her first steps though now she has i cannot quite believe it. it just feels like another sign that my tiny baby is gone, now i really do have a thirteen month old toddler. life has been moving too fast!

everyday scout amazes me! everyday it just feels like she’s learning something new and becoming this whole tiny person, which i honestly cannot believe. next thing we know, she’ll be fifteen and getting angry at us because we won’t let her go to her third party that week.


@readingreverie [name_m]Welcome[/name_m] to the blog!
@BeeEl Your kids are precious!
@melia22 Yayyy! [name_f]Scout[/name_f] is so big!

Hey all! This week we went on a vacation to [name_f]Florida[/name_f], and we all had a blast!

[name_f]Cami[/name_f] in [name_f]Florida[/name_f]

Once we got home we were all so tuckered out, [name_f]Cami[/name_f] especially and she fell asleep right away meaning that DH and I got to talk about the baby’s name. We have decided on the name, but we will only share her initials for now: EA. We will call her [name_f]Baby[/name_f] E until she is born!
