Theo @ 2 Months



 At 2 months Theo is 13 pounds, 1 ounce and 23.75 inches.


He's already too heavy. I've been having lots of back pain from carrying this little guy. 

He currently loves sleeping, lights, big windows and faces.

He's a quick eater. Usually only takes about 10 minutes to eat. 

He's been to 3 states and on many long car rides. He's going to be a great traveler. Sometimes he complains when he first gets in the car, but I hold his hand and he calms down. 

He's still a great night sleeper. He even slept 10 hours straight! He usually does one long stretch about 5 to 7 hours and then a 4 hour stretch. I really only get up twice with him. I'm getting decent sleep except when he does a long stretch I have trouble falling back asleep. 

He falls asleep on his own when he takes naps. He takes about 5 a day. I'm afraid he's not going to walk until he's 2 with all the sleeping he does. At night as long as it's dark and quiet he will fall asleep on his own. He's so easy.

When he's awake he's very smiley. I sometimes catch him smiling at the wall. When people talk to him he tries talking back. 


When he does get upset it doesn't last too long. Usually he just wants to be held and look out a window.

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Faribault Bike Ride Makes Us Buy Meadow a New to Her Bike

Scott had some shoots south of the metro so we tagged along for the day. 
After shooting the quickest shoots I've ever done we ended up in Faribault. We got food at the lowest rated Mexican restaurant in the southern Minnesota city. My instincts say these folks don't have a taste for authentic Mexican food and I was right. Restaurante El Colibri was so good.
The trick to finding good Mexican food is avoiding the places that have the typical Mexican restaurant decor, you know the ones with the painted seats. 
We brought along our bikes so we could take the Sakatah Singing Hills  State Trail. 15 miles from Fairbault is the namesake Sakatah Lake State Park. There they have 4 bike in camp spots (they were reduced to two because of COVID). We thought about bike camping there , but sites are first come first served and we'd hate to bike there with all our stuff only to find they were full.
Always doing tricks.
Instead we just went for a nice, really flat, bike ride.

Honeymoon: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry.

I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.
