Theo @ 1 Month

With Meadow I couldn't wait for her to grow up. Now that I have Theo and know he's going to be my last baby I'm actually sad that he's growing up.
On the other hand, I'm counting down the days until he crawls around. He's a cute little dude and it's nice to hold him while lying down, but I can't wait for the two kiddos to play.

This is also the time that Meadow likes him the most. She keeps asking when she will be able to play with him. She sure loves him and wants to be by him all the time.


So far he's been pretty easy going. Just recently he's become fussier when he's awake. He usually just wants to be held. He nurses frequently during the day and goes longer between feedings at night. I have to admit I'm actually getting enough sleep, except that the interruptions are annoying. He usually does one long stretch like 4-5 hours after he first goes to bed and then wakes every 2-4 hours after that.


After a while I hardly noticed he was waking up. I feel like Brooke's doing more than last time, but it's not like I can feed the dude.


He's also a lot easier to get to bed. Meadow always wanted to stay up until midnight. He usually goes to be bed around 9 and gets up between 8-10 in the morning. I hope he stays a late sleeper like his sister.

He's started smiling when I hold him close. He always stops when Meadow comes near, I think she gets too close.

We love you little dude.

Honeymoon: You've Got to Go to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Day 9
I'm sure bears like popcorn, but we didn't see any. It was raining so we skipped making breakfast and ate our snack food instead.

Duluth for Work and Exploring East Lake After the Chaos

Oh, hey. It's our neighborhood.
The kids wanted to play with the Potato Heads and made our family with them.
There's Theo.
No, wait, there's the real Theo.
I had a job up in Duluth, so I asked Meadow if she wanted to come up with me. She could spend the day with Blake whose done a good job social distancing.
The poor kid has been stuck at home for so long. I stayed back with Theo, I figured these two could have a little trip together.
We arrived the night before and met little Ruth, Blake and Daniel's new dog.

We played in his yard for a bit and then a double rainbow showed up.

It was pretty great in person.
We walked through Blake's new neighborhood, Central Hillside.
Meadow even got to walk Ruth.
She loves walking dogs.

We got some food from the King of Creams and brought it to a nearby park.
Then we played on the play

Friends and Family Come from Far and Farther

My family lives on every possible extreme of the American experience (well no one is in Alaska...at this point). My brother lives in NYC, my sis is in lovely San Jose and my aunts live in Phoenix and Tampa respectively. This means I don't get to see them all that often.
For our wedding I was super excited to bring the whole family together; the aunts and uncle and couldn't make it, but would get to see Colin, Katrina and Dennis and the 'rents.
As an added bonus, my best friend of all time, the Olger Nano, was coming from St. Martin in the Carribean to officiate my wedding. What a guy!
Yes. Olger was probably one of the best wedding presents we got. 
I spent most of the Wednesday before the wedding picking up friends and family from the airport. I wish I had brought my camera, but most of our wedding weekend was chronicled by my awesome Tuska and Romenesko siblings.
I met Colin at MSP's Humphrey Terminal and we then headed to MOA to kill some time and find a belt for the w…
