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.

She hates car rides. She's either sleeping or screaming whenever we put her in her seat. I had a feeling this would happen since she constantly moved whenever I was in the car when she was in utero.

I should preface this. She hates getting in the car, but enjoys the rest of the ride. So, she's great on long rides.

She varies how long she sleeps at night. She gets up anywhere between 1.5 to 5 hours at night depending on where she's sleeping. She's put herself to sleep twice from listening to her sleep giraffe. Her favorite noise is the one for play.

That's the jungle theme when she's going to bed instead of when she's goofing around.

She holds on to some of her toys and shakes them.


She's started cooing and making super cute noises. 

She likes to suck on her fists which can be confusing to me if she's actually hungry or not.

She still doesn't use a pacifier. Sometimes I'm her pacifier and that's okay with me.

These two are the best.

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Honeymoon: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry.

I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.

Cottage for Harvey & Nolan's Birthday

Back to the cottage again. This time we enjoyed our tamales at a trailhead for ATV and snowmobile trails in Cameron.
La Loma is still the best tamale shop in all of the Twin Cities. Perfect to bring along on a drive to the cottage.
We decided to come up for Nolan and Harvey's birthday. We hadn't seen them since Thanksgiving and probably won't see them again until next summer. 
It seemed like the best time to spend some time with the Gostishas and Farbers. With school back in person in Wisconsin, we'll have to reevaluate when we can see Brooke's sisters. Covid sucks.
Since we hadn't seen Chelsea in a long time we had more birthday presents to exchange. Theo got a new water bottle. Back in February, when it was his birthday, Chelsea asked me what Theo wanted/needed for his birthday. We had recently lost his water bottle in Mexico so I suggested he needed a new one. I obviously forgot all about this conversation. Earlier today while grocery shopping Scott picked up a …
