Meadow @ 2 Months

 At 2 months Meadow is 11 pounds and 21.75 inches long. She's starting to get a little chunky. Every week I swear she gets bigger and I discover new things about her. For instance she loves screaming. She currently loves mama's boobs, going outside, lights, looking at her black and white mobile (she even has a favorite pattern), baths and our goofy songs we sing to her.  Baby rock, baby roll, baby crawl.

Since we left "early" Scott didn't have anything to eat and since we had to stop anyway he picked us up some donuts.  Oh come on! You're complaining about donuts! We also had nothing to eat in the house. I wasn't complaining. We had to make another stop for Meadow halfway there. This time we were hungry for lunch. We've driven on US 8 a hundred times by now, but we've never really run into a decent restaurant. It's seems like all these towns only have Subways.  This time around we made a little effort and found the  Eastern Chinese Restaurant in Ladysmith. It's one of the bigger cities along the route and should have guessed there was somet
