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.

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.

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.

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in.

I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it.

School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class.
