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.

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.
