Meadow @ 3 Months


Three months old and Meadow is still a peanut.

She loves being the loudest baby in the room and has finally started to open her hands up more. Still likes having them in fists. 

She will hold something if you hand it to her and if she drops it she will pick it back up if its in reach.

She has discovered her hands and will suck on her fingers like its the end of the world. Actually she puts anything in her mouth that's in her hands. 

She still loves her black and white mobile. I tried changing it out and she didn't like the new one. She likes shiny things, her play keys, the crinkle page in her fabric book, looking at herself in her mirror, her hands, eating, baths, being talked to and being held. 

She is trying to roll over and can get to her side. She holds her head up real high when doing tummy time. She even tries to get to a toy that she can see. 

She has started sleeping really well at night. She sleeps 7-8 hours and gets up only once or twice. She's starting to be able to take naps on her own, although they are usually short. 

I've been teaching her sign language for milk and all done. Sometimes it sounds like she says agua, key or yea!

Unless we are outside she doesn't always like being in the wrap or Ergo because she can't see. She is so curious about the world and loves to look around. She just stares when we go grocery shopping.

She went on her first stroller ride and loved it.

I was afraid this would happen but she's got a bald spot on the back of her head.

She gets very distracted during feedings. Always wants to pull off and look around so I never know if she's done or not.

Eureka! It's Thanksgiving!

For the first time in 2 years we were able to head home for Thanksgiving. I am so thankful this year that Scott isn't working retail. Especially with how ridiculously early stores are opening.  I'm thankful I'm working for myself . Luckily I had Wednesday off and Scott, well, he can have off whenever he wants. We made it out of the city with no traffic and came home in time for dinner.  I made that cake like 5 years ago in school (don't worry just the outside is real). I'm surprised my parents have still kept it even though its changing colors and covered in dust. Everytime we go to my parents house Scott always has to poke fun of my senior pictures. He's just jealous he didn't get to sit on a swing.  My mom had just gotten the upgraded version of Scott's phone. She had no idea how to use it, so Scott had to show her how. For the rest of the weekend I played the part of Geek Squad agent. Better than actually working at BBY.

Thanksgiving in the Valley

Thursday This year Brittany hosted Thanksgiving at her new house. We debated between going to Grand Rapids, Michigan (where my sister and mom live) and going to Little Chute (most of Brooke's family). With Grand Rapids being a 9 hour drive (no stopping), we opted for the 4 hour drive to her family. While getting ready for Thanksgiving I found these 30 plus year old German wines sitting in the garage. I guess they'd been sitting in Grandma Lungwitz's basement since then. We uncorked one of them for the night. I was all for it until my dad opened one and when I mentioned where it came from he made a face and exclaimed he would not drink it. My contribution for Thanksgiving this year was pumpkin shaped rolls. For the first time in 33 years we actually get to sit with the adults and the cousins were at the kids table. They were happy to have their own table. To our surprise Brooke's cousin Hayden showed up too. We always have a

Thanksgiving in Chicago with (Almost) the Whole Tuska Clan

Thursday After work on Wednesday we drove down to stay the night at Scott's parents house. When we arrived we learned the air mattress was already at Colin's place. Luckily we brought Meadow's travel toddler bed. Unfortunately that bed no longer stays inflated. We woke up, ate breakfast and drove the final 90 minutes to Chicago. For some reason I got the address wrong by a block. I stepped up to this modern home and thought aloud, "This can't be right." It turns out it was one more block to the east. When we arrived Meadow said, "We're here already?!" I guess she's not used to short drives. Then we found the right place. The story with their apartment is that the building was a single family home that started on fire. The inside was gutted after the fire and split into two units. Thank you Chicago for saving the building. While the food was being prepped we ate fancy meats and cheeses. My brother Colin was har
