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.

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping.Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative.
On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

Katrina and Dennis's Big Day!

I don't shoot nearly enough weddings. I'm just not good at the whole marketing aspect.The one's I end up photographing are, like this one, family or through the grapevine.
This time around I'm shooting my big (little) sister's wedding to Dennis, a man I respect immensely. I got to hang out with him a few times in Chicago and then a whole week in San Jose. I really looked forward to the bachelor party with the guys and wasn't disappointed.
While the women got ready and after I helped setup the venue I came back to hang with the dudes and ostensibly get dressed. As you can see above we drank some beer and booze and shot the shit.

My big brother, Colin, was the officiant and was really excited for his parking pass that was included with his ordination packet.
All the women involved in the wedding gathered into Katie's room to get our hair done. Olive was just there to entertain us.

And the bride is ready.
At some point we had to take taxis the mile or so up Wab…
