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.

The Week That Changed Minneapolis

We were supposed to be at the cottage for Memorial Day weekend, but long story short, that did not happen.
Instead we were invited for an outdoor cookout. On our way to Nate's house we had to stop and get gas. I had to document this moment because the last time we got gas was on March 8th coming home from my birthday weekend in Duluth.
Thanks, Covid.
Nate and jess invited us over for a vegan grill out. We jumped at the offer.
We brought the beers and a few snacks. They had much of everything else.
It felt a little strange to be at someone else's house. I also commented that this was the farthest north I had been in months.
Nate also grilled us some sci-fi vegan burgers and also had eggplant on the grill.
 Theo stole my camera again.

Nah, this was on my phone.
He must've gotten yours next.
Theo basically just ate fruit.
This kid could live off fruit alone.
We drank a bunch of beers.
More fruit Theo? Yes, yes he will.
The next day we were going to try and attempt to fish at Lake Harri…

Yardwork, Ikea and Pumpkins

My new parents-in-law got us a dehydrator for the wedding. Knowing we were going to be cleaning up the garden and going to farmer's market, we took a gander at our millionth kitchen device during breakfast.
Scott added granola to his oatmeal. 
The oatmeal was rather bland, just the way Brooke likes it.
Scott was actually cleaning up so I had to take a quick photo of him as proof. 
Scott told me he was, "putting a blanket down for Peanut," while singing.
During the winter months peanut needs a warm place to peer through the window. Seeing as it was nearly November, I setup his blanket for him.
Seeing as the farmers market season is dwindling down, we headed to the market...once again. The close proximity to the cities central farmer's market has to be one of the best assets of living in NoMi. We were both amazed by the bounty of produce still on sale.
We quickly filled up our first bag and took it back to the car.
Brussel sprouts on the stalk. How cool!
Pumpkins for carvin…

A Brief Duluth Respite and Another Tough Week in Minneapolis

Minneapolis has become worldwide news. The killing of George Floyd at the hands of police had sparked protests and riots in the city. The riots had moved closer to our neighborhood which meant little sleep. 
I'd been watching over the street each night as rioting erupted. It wasn't until that Thursday that I realized that it was unsettling Brooke. At 1:30 in the morning we had heard screeching just as rioting was only a mile or so away now. It turned out to be nothing, but scared the shit out of us.
Blake offered to have us come to his house. I had no faith that the night was going to get better. As we were driving up to Duluth we saw multiple posts on Facebook of neighborhoods getting together ready to stop the arsonists. It did make us feel guilty for leaving our neighbors. 
But the kids were happy to get out of the house for the first time in months and they missed Blake.
Visits to Blake and Duluth are always the perfect respite. Because of Covid-19 we hadn't been up sin…
