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.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

While driving through the Linden Hills neighborhood with the trees all lit, Meadow said, "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Oh that's what the song means!" Since it was the weekend after Thanksgiving we had to make that a reality. We decorated our little place with the Christmas decorations that made the cut in our downsize. You didn't think we'd get rid of our collection of nutcrackers? Did you? My good friend and realtor Nate invited us to his companies Christmas party. Meadow was super excited. Upon walking in they had her favorite cutouts for photo ops. Meadow was also super pumped to pick her own cookies. First we ate said cookies. While waiting for our turn to see Santa Meadow wrote him a letter. Both kids did great. Though none of them smiled. Nate later asked me, "Is Santa smiling?" Indeed he was not. We were number 87. I'm sure he was done with smiling by number 50.

Meadow goes back to school Brooke's Always Productive Vol. 978

Meadow had her first day of school on Wednesday. Of course it also happens to be below zero.   Along with Meadow going back to school and needing masks, I also made her some headbands and attached buttons to hold the straps.  Perfect so her little ears don't get hurt. The kids requested Chocolate Rye Pancakes for this Valentine's breakfast. So sweet. In two ways. I guess Brooke got Meadow a Valentine's shirt. Nope, I got her the fleece lined leggings with hearts on the knees. She already had the shirt. Mmmm...the kids' favorite. You know it's cold outside when you can't see out the window.  Meadow was up to her crafty self and made Theo a batman mask. She made a wrong cut and patched it up otherwise it looks awesome. I made Brooke some peanut butter-peanut butter cup-chocolate ice cream for Valentine's day. It was delicious. When you live in a small place your bedroom becomes your sewing room. I also prefer sewing standing up.  I'm not sure if she's

Sisters, a Brother and Walking Chicago

  Summer always seems to mean one thing: weddings. Whether I'm shooting or attending, we're bound to end up at a few every year.  This time around we were heading down to Chicago from my big sister Katrina's nuptials. I feel like all our vacations are centered around a wedding or something wedding related. I wish we could go on a vacation without having to worry about being somewhere.   It also means a few repetitive trips down I-94. There aren't nearly enough unique stops off the interstate. One outlier is Foster Cheese Haus , the only organic Wisconsin cheese shop I know of. Run by the folks behind Castle Rock Organic Farms , we always try to stop by. Unfortunately for us they were closed on Wednesdays, but at least we got to spy on their darling garden out front.    Brooke and I arrived in Necedah. We decided to stop at Brooke's sister Brittany's home along the way to cut the ride in half and get her dressed hemmed.   In
