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.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
