Meadow @ 5 Months

Our little baby girl is growing up. She's now five months old.


I'm pretty sure Meadow went through a growth spurt recently. She seems much bigger to me. Everyone else thinks she's pretty small for her age. Especially her head size.


She can push up on her body when she's on her stomach and pushes herself backwards. She's really trying to crawl.

She still can't roll from her front to back.

She still likes waking up every 2-3 hours at night.


She's learned to arch her back when she's in the swing and ends up falling out.


She goes to bed anytime between 8:30 and 11.

Sometimes she doesn't want to leave us.


Her bald spot is getting bigger. Her hair in front is getting longer.




People still think she's a boy if she's not wearing pink.


She's on cloth diapers full time now and its going pretty well.

Brooke likes blowing homemade bubbles at Meadow.

She doesn't really get it.

She actually pays attention to books when we read them.

She loves to shout, grunt, eat her toes, put everything she can get her hands on in her mouth, she's happiest when she's naked, giggles when she's tickled.


She's even getting close to sitting up on her own.

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.

Brooke's Always Productive Vol. 978

  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 complaining, but I love our small footprint condo lifestyle. Do not miss our big old house. N

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
