Falling for Meadow at 3 months

It's getting cooler outside which means Scott brings out the flannel.

Flannel shirt. Check. Flannel-lined pants. Check. Flannel underwear. Not so much.

I had a quick breakfast then made breakfast again for Scott and I. He always complains I don't make breakfast for him. I'm always so hungry when I get up I have to eat right away.

Oh, man. Everyday I love this woman more. And look at the beautiful daughter we made!

Meadow loves putting everything you give her in her mouth lately. 

As you can see we are slowly working on Meadow's room.

I talked to my sister. I was hoping to Skype with her and our newest baby niece, Simone. Unfortunately they don't have internet for the time being.

I've been trying to get her to sleep on her own lately. She fell asleep while I was nursing her then woke up as soon as I moved. 

We grew two pie pumpkins this year. Our biggest ones yet. 

I prepped them for roasting. I then froze the puree for Thanksgiving pies.

I put on some Bob Marley lullabies and she eventually fell asleep.

Peanut stood on guard and made sure she didn't go anywhere.

This time I saved the seeds for roasting too. 

She's so serious when eating peoples fingers. 

Its a damn cute face she makes.

A week late but we took some photos of Meadow. 


Peanut wanted to be a part of it too. 

BLT for lunch. Soon we won't have the luxury of CSA shares and garden harvests.

We listened to more lullabies during lunch. 

Meadows arms are too short for her baby gym and she has to be in a good mood to play. Then she gets frustrated that she can't put the toys in her mouth. 

Meadow seems to want to eat our food. Sorry bear, but you'll have to wait a few more months for solids.

Scott needs new shoes so we headed to Uptown.

No shoes but we both got some new jeans and Scott got a new sweater.

More of smoking jacket to be honest. 

A new Whole Foods opened up downtown. I stopped by a few days ago to pick up some things. Scott wanted to check it out too. 

It's a nice addition and the second closest full service grocery store to us. It's nearer than the co-ops, but we'll only get a few staples that are cheaper form Whole Foods. I'm a big fan of their house brand organic noodles. They're less than two bucks.

When we got home I prepped a quick pasta dish with homemade pork sausage and mustard greens.

I wasn't ready to go to sleep so I made chocolate chip cookies.

The Week That Changed Minneapolis

We were supposed to be at the cottage for Memorial Day weekend, but long story short, that did not happen.
Instead we were invited for an outdoor cookout. On our way to Nate's house we had to stop and get gas. I had to document this moment because the last time we got gas was on March 8th coming home from my birthday weekend in Duluth.
Thanks, Covid.
Nate and jess invited us over for a vegan grill out. We jumped at the offer.
We brought the beers and a few snacks. They had much of everything else.
It felt a little strange to be at someone else's house. I also commented that this was the farthest north I had been in months.
Nate also grilled us some sci-fi vegan burgers and also had eggplant on the grill.
 Theo stole my camera again.

Nah, this was on my phone.
He must've gotten yours next.
Theo basically just ate fruit.
This kid could live off fruit alone.
We drank a bunch of beers.
More fruit Theo? Yes, yes he will.
The next day we were going to try and attempt to fish at Lake Harri…

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part III

Sunday called for downpours all day long. I got the kids in their rainsuits and we headed to the Rose Garden.
 It was nice with no one here.



Theo wanted to bring his ducky along on a walk but we couldn't find the doll carrier. His overalls would have to do.
Meadow had to get outside for distance learning, so we went to the bird sanctuary next to Lake Harriet.
Meadow had to tell her teachers what she heard, felt and saw. And she sent a picture and audio recording of the frogs in the marshy forest.

Of course she needed to. 

 Scott had to work outside the home for the day while I worked from home. Once in awhile I'd come out to check on the kids. One time I caught Meadow making her own mug cake. I asked her what she put in it and she said, "I don't know, a little of this a little of that". It was actually not bad.
 She even cleaned up after herself.
 We have been working with the neighbors in our building to put in a patio in the back. I made a wall with our random p…

Yardwork, Ikea and Pumpkins

My new parents-in-law got us a dehydrator for the wedding. Knowing we were going to be cleaning up the garden and going to farmer's market, we took a gander at our millionth kitchen device during breakfast.
Scott added granola to his oatmeal. 
The oatmeal was rather bland, just the way Brooke likes it.
Scott was actually cleaning up so I had to take a quick photo of him as proof. 
Scott told me he was, "putting a blanket down for Peanut," while singing.
During the winter months peanut needs a warm place to peer through the window. Seeing as it was nearly November, I setup his blanket for him.
Seeing as the farmers market season is dwindling down, we headed to the market...once again. The close proximity to the cities central farmer's market has to be one of the best assets of living in NoMi. We were both amazed by the bounty of produce still on sale.
We quickly filled up our first bag and took it back to the car.
Brussel sprouts on the stalk. How cool!
Pumpkins for carvin…
