Home, Work, Baby

Now that Meadow doesn't get up quite as often at night I'm not starving when I wake up. I'm okay with making breakfast for the sleepy bears. 

 Scott was still trying to sneak in a few more minutes of sleep and Meadow was ready to get out of bed.

 The cutest alarm clock that money can't buy.

 I made apple smiley and heart shaped pancakes with strawberries. 

 Meadow joined us for breakfast.

She's sitting in her Bumbo. So, no. She isn't some kind of super baby.

 Meadow wanted to watch Scott doing some work. 

I had to finish up painting the balcony before Minnesota was in permafrost mode. I'd been painting storm windows all week, so this was the logical next step.

 Then she watched me fold laundry. She's obsessed with rolling over. As soon as I put her down she immediately rolls over. 

 Now that Meadow has a bed in her room she takes naps in there and ends up sleeping longer and falls asleep easier (awesome). I get more me time while she sleeps, so I scrubbed my feet with sugar scrub. 

I went over to I-394 to shoot a development for a client. On the way back I checkd out outdoor lights. I'd like to get a pair that match for the balcony and the back door.

I also picked up few other necessities like candy corn.

 Scott came home to Meadow and I doing aerobics. 

 Since Meadow was a week old I've been reading to her. At first we could barely make it through one book before she got bored/wanted to eat. Now she makes it through one or two. 

Oh, yeah, I got a new camera on the way home from Mankato, a Nikon D800. We still have the D300 and D5000, but Brooke isn't used to using this camera. When using DX lenses you have to look at a rectangle within the viewfinder when in DX mode. She didn't realize and took this arty pic.

 We bugged Scott again when he got back.

 Scott complained that he didn't want to make dinner. I said I would if he watched baby. I had been playing with her all day and wanted to do something else. 

 Hot and Crunchy Chicken Cones.

I heard something outside. It was the neighbor kids collecting lady bugs (well more likely they were Asian Beetles, but the kids call them lady bugs). 

By the time we ate it was already dark out.

 After he cleaned the kitchen he decided to make a mess again and make brownie ice cream. 

I started with the brownies. I got the recipe from the How to Cook Everything app.

 It was my mom's birthday, so Meadow and I Skyped with her.

Mr. Mike even Skyped for a little while.

I spent the next couple hours making the chocolate ice cream, freezing the brownies and then combining the two. I couldn't wait to try some the next morning.

So cute seeing Meadow at the table next to Scott. She’s so tiny. I loved the smiley pancakes.

Aerobics – ha, ha.

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H

Freaster Sunday

We decided to stay home for Easter this year. We've missed the past few years and seem to be okay with it. We still celebrate in our own way. For breakfast I made oat bran. This time I sweetened it with a little agave. Scott seems to think I only like my oats bland, but that's not true. I make truly interesting oats. Agave, my friends, does not make oatmeal tasty. If you're looking for a quick, but complex variation try this recipe the next time you have a few extra minutes -- unless you like bland-meal. Steel-cut Oats w/ Apple Chips, Raisins and Cinnamon 1 C Water 2/3 C Steel Cut Oats Handful of Apple Chips 1/4 C Raisins 2 T Brown Sugar 1 t Cinnamon Pinch of Salt Cook the first two ingredients for a few minutes over medium heat. When water starts to simmer lower heat and add dried fruit. Cook until tender. While still on heat add a teaspoon of cinnamon, two tablespoons brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Eat. Scott looked for his Easter ba

Food Daze

Remember why we needed a freezer? We did order one from Best Buy that week, but it was on backorder until July 21. We still didn't get it and now they are saying it could be August 28. You have no idea how hard it is to go through the whole summer not being able to make our own ice cream or popsicles. Buying ice cream is nothing compared to making homemade. Please cross your fingers with us in hopes we get it soon. Since Scott had to be to work at 11. We got up early and drove to the farmers market. We had to get there fast, so we couldn't bike. As Brooke noted a few posts back, it seems like more and more people are coming to the Sunday market. It can be pretty chaotic. It took us nearly ten minutes to park. There was so much to choose from this time around. It's a lot more fun to go to the market this time of year. It's really amazing what diverse crops grow in Minnesota's short summer. Makes one wish we didn't waste so much fertile land
