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.

Meadow goes back to school Brooke's Always Productive Vol. 978

Meadow had her first day of school on Wednesday. Of course it also happens to be below zero.   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

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
