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.

Minneapolis Weekday Adventures and Apple Picking on the Weekend

Meadow returned to school this week. Our big 3rd grader.  We went to the inspection at our new house and afterwards walked over to Vo's for dinner. It's going to be nice having this place closer to us. One of our favorite places and now even closer. We left our house early midweek since our condo had it's inspection. While our condo was being inspected we went out for breakfast before school. I'd never been to Our Kitchen. We always ended up getting donuts from Bogarts across the street instead. It's always packed on the weekends. Was nice to get up early and get a table. Why hadn't Brooke insisted on taking us here. It's so good. Luckily we'll still live close by and stop by again. Note to self though, only order one pancake per kid. They're huge! We dropped Meadow off at school and walked over to the "Boblikin" woods as Theo calls it. A few days later we went apple picking. I am now all for the early apple picking. There's way less cr

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H
