Meadow @ 10 Months


At 10 months Meadow weighs 17 pounds 15 ounces and is 26 1/2 inches long.

I feel like she has grown up so much this month. She's starting to understand us more and has become more playful. She loves playing peek-a-boo, rolling a ball back and forth and pretends to give you something then doesn't let go. 

She's a tug of war master.

One of her top middle teeth has poked through and another should be coming soon. In total, she has five teeth. 

 She currently loves Peanut's ears and tail, laughing at everything, eating anything and everything off the floor, exploring, watching kids, the beach, grass, panting like a dog, eating paper and being pushed in the swings at the park.

 Her hair gets lighter and lighter.

Pssst...It's because she's in the sun more. It happens to her papa every summer.

 She still wakes up once or twice at night. Two nights in a row she slept through the night.

 She doesn't seem to like her glasses and pulls them off. We think she may need a new prescription.

 She eats three meals a day. Usually a version of whatever we are eating. She much prefers feeding herself so we hardly do purees anymore. She still doesn't like yogurt, but will eat oatmeal. She doesn't seem too fond of lentils (unless they are on the floor).

 We went on a two week road trip this month and she did great until the last 2 days.

 She likes to scream really loud when she's excited or mad. She knows when I do sign language with her what they mean, just hasn't figured out how to do it back.

She finally understands her name and will look at you when you say it.

Our Wedding

Brooke and I aren't traditionalists. We didn't want to sit through a half-hour ceremony, but we also didn't think eloping was the answer. One thing that we did do was spend the night before the wedding in separate houses.   Even though Scott came with me to pick out my dress I still didn't want him to see me before the wedding. I had to keep one tradition. I woke up early to meet Brooke's dad at the Theodore Wirth Picnic Pavilion, only to find out that he was meeting me a couple hours later. I ended up getting most of the decorations over to the venue with my dad, sister and Dennis.  Scott had texted me in the morning, "I'm supposed to merry your dad right now right?". I was like, merry my dad? What he meant to type, but autocorrect corrected for him was meet.  Since Brooke came over to the venue to help, I spent most of the rest of the day with Blake, Colin and Olger. We ate some Pair of Dice Pizza and

Mankato's Minneopa Waterfalls and Bison in Spring

  Another weekend, another hiking trip. This time Minneopa State Park. We started with the Hiking Club Trail . The Hiking Club is a great way to get the kids excited about our hikes. Rather than just going out for a hike they're searching for the secret password along the trail.   Where there's rocks Meadow will climb. 

An End of Spring Break Visit to the Three Lakes Cottage

Meadow's on spring break so a trip to the cottage it is. The weekend called for rain, rain, rain but we don't care.   We all brought along our rain suits just in case it never let up. Even with just a drizzle Theo put on his suit right away. I think this is the earliest I've seen the ice off the lake. Should have brought our swimsuits. Brooke used to always be the first one swimming as a kid. Maybe Meadow, Brooke and Theo can keep that tradition alive. Me? Probably not. Theo must think his rain suit is completely waterproof. He went well past his boots.
