Meadow @ 8 Months





Our little Meadow is becoming less of a baby and more of a toddler. 

This was a big month for her. She has perfecting crawling, climbs on things, pulls herself up, mastered her pincer grab, sits on her own, waves and has her first teeth.


She currently loves chasing after Peanut, climbing on me, singing like Mariah Carey and pulling books off her shelf.


Anytime she is awake during mealtime she eats with us. She usually has a banana for breakfast, peas for lunch and a new food everyday for dinner.


We do a combination of baby led weaning and pureed food. The only thing she doesn't like so far is kiwi's.


She still goes to bed around 9 or 10, gets up once or twice at night and wakes up around 8:30-9. She also takes two long naps during the day. 

Her hair is getting really long and the front and I've noticed its getting lighter in color. 




She still is super wiggly all the time. I was recently told she is very independent.

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.

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

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.
