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.

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H

Freaster Sunday

We decided to stay home for Easter this year. We've missed the past few years and seem to be okay with it. We still celebrate in our own way. For breakfast I made oat bran. This time I sweetened it with a little agave. Scott seems to think I only like my oats bland, but that's not true. I make truly interesting oats. Agave, my friends, does not make oatmeal tasty. If you're looking for a quick, but complex variation try this recipe the next time you have a few extra minutes -- unless you like bland-meal. Steel-cut Oats w/ Apple Chips, Raisins and Cinnamon 1 C Water 2/3 C Steel Cut Oats Handful of Apple Chips 1/4 C Raisins 2 T Brown Sugar 1 t Cinnamon Pinch of Salt Cook the first two ingredients for a few minutes over medium heat. When water starts to simmer lower heat and add dried fruit. Cook until tender. While still on heat add a teaspoon of cinnamon, two tablespoons brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Eat. Scott looked for his Easter ba

Food Daze

Remember why we needed a freezer? We did order one from Best Buy that week, but it was on backorder until July 21. We still didn't get it and now they are saying it could be August 28. You have no idea how hard it is to go through the whole summer not being able to make our own ice cream or popsicles. Buying ice cream is nothing compared to making homemade. Please cross your fingers with us in hopes we get it soon. Since Scott had to be to work at 11. We got up early and drove to the farmers market. We had to get there fast, so we couldn't bike. As Brooke noted a few posts back, it seems like more and more people are coming to the Sunday market. It can be pretty chaotic. It took us nearly ten minutes to park. There was so much to choose from this time around. It's a lot more fun to go to the market this time of year. It's really amazing what diverse crops grow in Minnesota's short summer. Makes one wish we didn't waste so much fertile land
