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.

A Big Old Family 4th and Our First Trip to the Fox Valley and Bay Beach in Forever

We began our 4th of July weekend a little early with a trip to Marshfield, WI. I had to shoot a cable company store and I didn't feel like going back and forth from Wisconsin to Minnesota and then back again. Meadow found something shiny at the bottom of the hotel pool and I went diving for it.  We got to the cottage for the long 4th weekend and I enjoyed some ramen. Because, you know. Chelsea and the kids were already up when we arrived. Theo would play in his turtle all weekend long. Hey Harvey. The cousins were reunited after almost a year. Theo didn't remember who they were. Theo may have not remembered who they were, but he still wanted to hang with the dudes. You can expect something yummy every night when the whole gang shows up. Chelsea served us her famous chicken and wild rice soup on our first night. Then we went on our fist pontoon ride of the week. Gail must bring wine on the boat ride. Oh and animal crackers of course. Not for Gail, but will end up all over the po

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
