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.

Morgan Comes to Minneapolis and We Go to Southern Minnesota

I went to the monthly North Minneapolis Bicycle Advocacy council meeting w hile Brooke, Meadow and her friend Morgan went kayaking.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
