Meadow @ 7 Months

At her last checkup a few weeks ago she was 15lbs 8oz and 25 1/4"long.

Currently she loves exploring, watching Peanut, watching shadows, doing yoga, eating real food, being held, eating tags, grabbing people's faces.

She has learned to crawl forward. 

Now she's working on sitting on her own.

She's started solids. So far she's eaten apples, pears, avocado, sweet potatoes and bananas. So far I think avocados are her favorite. If she eats the baby slop we put the food on her spoon and she will feed herself. Next month we will work on her scooping the food herself. 

She's working on drinking from a glass and does pretty well.

She's says "Hi" a lot and "Oh boy". 

She's on a more predictable sleep schedule. She goes to bed between 9-10. Wakes up around midnight and four. Wakes up for the day around 9. Takes her two naps around noon and four. 

Her hair is starting to finally grow back on her bald spot.

We recently found out she is far sighted and now wears glasses.

She has to warm up to people first before they can hold her.

She hates to sit still. Changing her diaper and clothes takes twice as long now. 

She's figured out how to jump in her jump-a-roo, but doesn't like to be in it more than 5 minutes.

Overall, you could say, she is growing up.

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…

Honeymoon: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry.

I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.

Cottage for Harvey & Nolan's Birthday

Back to the cottage again. This time we enjoyed our tamales at a trailhead for ATV and snowmobile trails in Cameron.
La Loma is still the best tamale shop in all of the Twin Cities. Perfect to bring along on a drive to the cottage.
We decided to come up for Nolan and Harvey's birthday. We hadn't seen them since Thanksgiving and probably won't see them again until next summer. 
It seemed like the best time to spend some time with the Gostishas and Farbers. With school back in person in Wisconsin, we'll have to reevaluate when we can see Brooke's sisters. Covid sucks.
Since we hadn't seen Chelsea in a long time we had more birthday presents to exchange. Theo got a new water bottle. Back in February, when it was his birthday, Chelsea asked me what Theo wanted/needed for his birthday. We had recently lost his water bottle in Mexico so I suggested he needed a new one. I obviously forgot all about this conversation. Earlier today while grocery shopping Scott picked up a …
