Theo @ 3 Months

 Our little Theo is growing like a weed. I feel like I'm always moving him up a size in clothing.

Everyone always mentions how big and grownup he looks.

He loves keeping his hands in fists and has recently started holding things if you put it in his hands.


He still loves to sleep. When he's awake he's happy for awhile then realizes he's awake and gets mad until he falls asleep again.


He goes to bed between 7:30-9, wakes up between 3am-6am and usually gets up for the day at 8:30. He still takes 5 naps during the day.


He's started sucking his wrists when he wants to sleep.

He's happiest when facing forward and has to sit with us when we eat.


He's the most upset when he takes a bath. He's only been fine with a bath like 3 times, otherwise he screams bloody murder.

He's discovered tv and tries to watch whenever it's on.

He's a fast nurser. Only nurses for about 10 minutes tops, but refuses a bottle.

He has graduated to cloth diapers, although his thighs are still not quite as big so he occasionally leaks.

He has had his first sickness already. He picked up a chest cold from his big sister. Luckily it didn't seem to bother him.

He currently loves his mobile over his diaper changing area. I switched out the black and white patterns for pictures of people. He just loves it. He smiles and talks to those pictures whenever we change his diaper.

Minneapolis Weekday Adventures and Apple Picking on the Weekend

Meadow returned to school this week. Our big 3rd grader.  We went to the inspection at our new house and afterwards walked over to Vo's for dinner. It's going to be nice having this place closer to us. One of our favorite places and now even closer. We left our house early midweek since our condo had it's inspection. While our condo was being inspected we went out for breakfast before school. I'd never been to Our Kitchen. We always ended up getting donuts from Bogarts across the street instead. It's always packed on the weekends. Was nice to get up early and get a table. Why hadn't Brooke insisted on taking us here. It's so good. Luckily we'll still live close by and stop by again. Note to self though, only order one pancake per kid. They're huge! We dropped Meadow off at school and walked over to the "Boblikin" woods as Theo calls it. A few days later we went apple picking. I am now all for the early apple picking. There's way less cr

We're Selling the Condo

We always knew our condo would be temporary. I could stay here forever but eventually Meadow and Theo will want their own space. Our next house will be a duplex with the other unit being rented out.  We had planned to keep the condo and rent it out too (and buy a duplex), but it wasn't quite working out with financing. Also realized we'd make a killing on selling the condo. Extra bonus: we'd get a nicer duplex with more cash down. We had been looking for places for the past 8 months, but houses are selling super fast in this market. If we actually want to make an offer we need to sell our place first. So today was spent getting the house ready. I've been working on the house every day since getting back from our week at the cottage. 12:00 Scott works in the kitchen I worked on deep cleaning the living room. So many toys hidden under the radiator.  Meadow ended up staying with my parents after we left the cottage. Theo was left on his own but I don't think he minded.

The Crews All Here: Labor Day 2021 at the Three Lakes Cottage

  We had a full house for Labor Day weekend this year. We started off said weekend with rummage sales and a trip to the new store in town, Little Dipper . We've been eyeing this place up all summer. They have classic Chicago Schwinn's for rent, seasonal flowers and an assortment of souvenirs and vintage items. It was pretty darling inside. The main reason we went was to get their Chain of Lakes puzzle. Blake had sent the historic map to the owner, so we had to get it.
