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.

Beaver Creek State Park Hiking Club (with a Layover at Frontenac State Park)

After we dropped Meadow off at school on Friday morning I made some last second plans to camp in southern Minnesota this weekend. Once we picked up Meadow we headed towards Red Wing. Red Wing Brewing has some really great pizza. The crust is something special. So we stopped there for dinner. Getting back to pre-COVID life is a bit strange, but we're getting used to it.

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.

7 Days Down, 158 Days To Go

Umm, well I ended up having a longer Christmas break than I had originally thought. It went really well until the last few days. I had dreaded this day since we met, I always knew it was going to come, but yet I ignored that it would ever happen. Saying goodbye to Scott was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I've had to do that so many times last year and I still have to do it. If I can get through January and February and I think I will be ok, or so I keep telling myself. I took out a second loan and it got denied, so I'm still as poor as ever until I can figure out what I'm going to do. I'm so glad school starts next week, being alone all day is very hard. I left Scott Thursday night and headed back to Little Chute, which I was glad I did. We're having some family issues concerning my dad's business and the death of his friend. It tears me up to see him like this. I wish I could've stayed home longer. I pretty much did, I left home early Su
