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.

A Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

Honeymoon But With Kids: Pictured Rocks, Beers and Beaches

We stopped for lunch in Grand Marais at The Dunes Saloon Lake Superior Brewing. That's the Michigan one. Not the one in Minnesota. Love the old bar vibes. We started with these massive bacon and cheese stuffed tater tots. They were so good.  The pizza was just as good. A much better brewery than Tahq Falls brewing. Scott wasn't so sure about having lunch here, we had to keep up with our Beaches and Brews theme of the trip.  Meadow has turned into such a teenager lately. She's so embarrassed to take photos with me now.  Oh, I'm going to miss having little kids. T he Lake Superior waters have been giving Theo all the curls.  Next we headed over to Sable Falls. We planned to see the eastern part of Pictured Rocks today since we were staying to the west of the park.   I attempted to recreate a photo from 10 years ago.  Back on the North Country Trail again. This trail runs 42 miles through Pictured Rocks along the coastline. I've now added it to my bucket list to thru-h
