Meadow @ 5 Years

Meadow loves to read books, Wonder Woman and all superhero women, creating things out of paper and playing in the water. We recently went to her second movie theater, movie. Of course it was Teen Titans Go! to the Movies.  She's starting to get into chapter books and loves the Rainbow Fairy series. I had read books to her almost every night for the past five years. Now it seems that Brooke and Meadow are getting into chapter books at bed. She has also gotten braver with swimming, but still won't go down water slides or get her face wet. I think going to Lake Harriet and wadding pools all summer really helped. I even got her to like fishing a bit. She's getting better at talking to people. This is still a work in progress, but it's OK to get to know someone before showing trust. She still likes staying up late and sleeping in. That's going to have to change soon. Kindergarten is coming. Here are Meadow's answers this year.  Ho

A Drone, Pie, Pride and a Food Truck Fest

We would eventually get some pie at a local institution, but first we had another Minneapolis summer weekend to take full advantage of.

Theo @ 4 Months

Theo weighs 14 pounds and is 25.75" in length. Our little dude is just a long skinny guy.  He's been more interactive and expressive, but still likes to sleep a lot. He loves sleeping, being talked to, looking in the mirror, being outside, his faces mobile, rolling over and looking out windows. He still sleeps with us in his bassinet. Since he will be sharing a room with his sister someday we will keep him with us for awhile.  He wakes up once a night between 1:30am -6:30am and has just started taking two 2-3 hour naps.  He falls asleep on his own for naps, but wants to be nursed to sleep at night.  He still goes to bed between 7:30-9 and gets up around 8:30-9. He can hold his head up on his own and is starting to learn to sit.  He's started giggling. He prefers to be held facing forward. 

Hot Summer in the City

It was hot. Our condo was going to be a sauna. So, we spent the whole day out in the cities.

Meadow, Mama and Theo Go to Open Streets Lyndale

After we ate breakfast Theo is ready for his first nap. That is before they were to head out for the day.

Our First Kingfield Farmers Market Sunday at the New Place

Since Brooke went back to work, I've been snuggling with these two every morning. Even with Brooke off the for the weekend, I couldn't help myself.
