Meadow @11 Months

Our baby no more; she has grown into a toddler. She's starting to understand us, remembers her favorite foods and is learning new sounds. She does so much now there's a lot to say.

Her favorite foods are bananas, Cheerios, any kind of meat, most fruits, yogurt, eggs

She does not like cottage cheese or anything with chili flakes. We've also discovered she's allergic to strawberries (maybe).


She cruises like crazy, but refuses help if we try to help her walk.


Meadow says ma, da, ba, na, née and other random words. 



She has seven teeth total. Four on top and three on the bottom.

She currently loves exploring, climbing, biting anything and everyone, eating everything she can get in her mouth (when will this stage end?), drinking from cups...


...pulling things off shelves, leaving bite marks in all her toys, watching kids, fake laughing, taking things on and off her head,


She still loves attention, but doesn't always smile at strangers anymore. If she gets too close to someone she doesn't know well after waking up, she gets scared. 

She will bring you something if you ask her. Still doesn't understand what no means. 


She's figured out how to clap, wave for real and climb on furniture. She will hug and kiss you. She likes to push things that roll.

 When I do sign language with her she understands, but doesn't do them back. 

She still gets up 0-2 times at night. She only nurses 4 times a day. Once at night, when she wakes up, once in the afternoon and before bed. I think she will self wean. She's way more interested in feeding herself and drinking from a cup.

Christmas of America

Earlier this week a certain naughty kitty decided he didn't like my puzzle and took apart half of it. I put tin foil across to stop him from doing it again. I heard cats don't like tin foil. Is that actually true or just a rumor?  Brooke cleaned our upstairs closet and found two Chia Pets. Neither one of them are Chia Obama , though Homer does look awfully presidential in this pose. They haven't been growing so she created some makeshift greenhouses. My pops came back to pick up my mom and help me with my 1920's toilet. A week later and no leaks. Looks like we did a good job. This gave me an excuse to try out my Christmas present from my in-laws.    Then we headed to the Mall of America. I'm pretty sure we are the only ones we know that actually shop here. I worked here at a spin-off store of Forever 21 when I first moved to Minnesota.  I feel no shame for shopping at this monstrosity. It often has the best sales rack of any

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.

Honeymoon But With Kids: Duluth Sailing and Madeline Island Beach Days

Day 1 Exactly 10 years ago Scott and I took a 10 day trip to Upper Michigan. While we were on this trip I said we should do this again with our kids in 10 years. Flash forward 10 years and here we are. We are following our same route and visiting the same places with a few additions. Thankfully we had these two kids in the preceding 10 years and they're road trip pros at this point. The start of the trip takes us to Duluth. We had planned to leave in the morning and arrive around noon. While packing up the car Scott noticed our car battery was dead.  I asked our neighbor for a jump and we were soon back on track. We never left our dome light on in 4 years at the condo, but somehow have managed to do this twice since moving. I guess a dark garage will do that.  Once that was fixed we had to figure out the puzzle of fitting 3 bikes onto our bike rack. By the time we were off we were getting hungry. Scott has always wanted to try Tobie's to see what the hype was all about.  After
