Friday Family Spotlight: Meet Andrea’s Family

I am excited to introduce you to Andrea and her awesome family of four! I love hearing stories like theirs; couples who grew up together, go on to get married, and eventually raise a family together…so sweet and inspiring! Also Andrea’s favorite quote might be one of my new favorites! Read on to learn more about Andrea and her family:

Who are the members of your family? Andrea (me), my husband Joel, and our 2 daughters, Tessa, age 2.5 and Nora, age 6 months.

How did you meet your significant other? We first met playing t-ball and grew up together in school. We started dating after being in Marching band together during his freshman year of high school. He played the quads, I played the bass drum in the drumline.

What do you and your family like to do for recreation? We are a very athletic family. We love to play sports, watch sports, and be outdoors. We enjoy camping, walks, and playing outside.

What is your favorite Mom’s Milk Boutique Product? I have so many. I started at MMB with just a few diapers. I now own what feels like half the store. I love the Ergo, Lactasties, CJ’s BUTTer, MotherLove diaper rash cream. I’ve recently starting using fitted diapers and I really like the Kissaluvs. Of course, my newborn stash was one of my favorites to build because they are just so cute and small.

What is your favorite baby carrier and why? I love my Ergo. It is very sturdy and tough, it’s been through different kinds of weather and other wear and tear and holds up very nicely. It’s easy for both my husband and I to use on either of our children and they are safe, secure, and happy in it.

What goals do you have for your family in the next year or two? Start a garden this spring, hopefully have a 3rd child, continue with our Dave Ramsey debt snowball payoffs.

Describe your daily routine: I get up at 4, pump, shower, get ready, and leave for work by 6:15. My husband gets the kids up, drops them off at daycare, and comes home to pick up the house. He leaves for work at 11:45. I get off at 3:30, work out, go home to start dinner, pick up the girls from daycare and serve dinner. Then we do bathtime, get the girls ready for bed and my husband gets home at 8, just in time to help tuck the girls in and get them asleep.

What has been your toughest challenge as a mom so far? Meeting the needs of everyone. It’s important for me to be a good, attentive mother, but I also don’t want to lose my identity as a wife or myself. Balancing all those simultaneously is tricky.

What are some of your favorite “me” time indulgences? I love to go wander around Target. I also love (and miss) coffee dates with old friends.

What is one of your favorite quotes? Be here to bless, not impress.

Thanks Andrea for sharing your family with us! I am excited for your plans to grow both a spring garden and a 3rd baby, lol! Wishing you the very best on both accounts. :)
