Theo @ 5 Months


Little Theo is starting to get more playful and aware of his surroundings.

He's finally becoming a playful little bugger.

 He definitely is growing taller instead of wider. He's still very long and skinny.

The doctor told us Meadow was too skinny and it's the same with Theo. Overall he's growing. He's just not a chunker.

Meadow was short, Theo is skinny.

He holds his head up real high when he's on his stomach.

He likes to grab his toys and our hair and pull off Meadow's glasses when she gets too close.

He's started doing raspberries.

He rolls from front to back and back to front. 

For a couple weeks he was sleeping through the night. He still goes to bed between 8:30-10 and get's up once at night.

Now he seems to wake up once or twice.

He's working on sitting up. We can put him in the high chair when we eat although he gets upset watching us eat. 

He has hair, but its so blonde it's hard to see.

He likes to watch Meadow when we are riding in the car. He will laugh at her when she is silly and then they both laugh until they get hiccups.

These two have very similar traits.

He's discovered his toes and tries to suck them.

He pretty much sucks on everything and chews your hand pretty hard.


He like's to make noises like he's talking to us.

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

Donut Sundaes, Farmers Market Sundays and Canoeing Lake Harriet on a Sunday

We're trying to enjoy our last few weeks in our condo and the neighborhood. We have been going for daily walks, to the park mostly.   We will miss the park so much.   I saw on Instagram that Bogart's now has donut sundaes. We convinced the kids to leave their kickball game to go get some.    Also loving our new blender.    Thanks basement store. Not our neighborhood but one last trip to the farmer's market for the season. With our busy summer we barely made it out this year. There's nothing better than a farmers market visit. The house around the corner from our condo was having a rummage sale. We were hoping for the toy chest for Meadow's costumes but it was already sold. As much as Scott hates it we had to get one more canoe ride in.    I like canoeing. I don't love lugging it to the lake on a cart. This time it wasn't windy so we could go all the way around the lake.  Theo tried fishing to pass time.   Can't believe it took us nearly four years t

Florida or Bust: Alligators in the Swimming Hole, A Plantation Home, Memphis BBQ, Frozen Custard and an Arch in St. Louis, Mark Twains Home and Some Frank Lloyd Wright for Good Measure

Day 13 Another morning another new campsite. This time we drove back into Mississippi to Clear Springs campground in the Homochitto National Forest as we are taking US 61 back north. I tried to pretend I was sleeping. The little one knew better than that.
