Meadow @ 12 Months



The day of Meadow's birth seems so far away, yet I can't believe she's a one year old. I had been waiting for this day for awhile. When she was just 12 days old I remember thinking I couldn't wait until she was older. I hated the newborn stage. 



Meadow weighs 17 pounds and 10 ounces. She is 28" long. 




She loves drinking water, playing in the sand, swinging, climbing up things, bike rides, going to storytime, taking things out or off shelves, pointing, climbing in and out of things,



Her favorite foods are bananas, toast with avocado, berries, 

She still hasn't taken any steps and refuses help with walking. She will pull the hand towels off of our oven while standing and loves to stand in the bathtub.




She has eight teeth now. Four on top and four on the bottom.

She's gotten a lot better about putting things in her mouth. We've discovered she bites a lot when she's tired.

She understands what book, milk or eat means.



She's getting better about sleeping through the night. She may only get up once and sometimes that's not until 7 am. She's a late sleeper like her Papa and usually wakes up anywhere between 9-10:30. 

She's nurses only 2-3 times a day.

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.

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.
