Theo @ 7 Months

At Theo's last appointment he was 15lbs

Currently he loves being held, trying to chase the vacuum, snuggling with a blanket, being outside, playing with his toys, and eating real food.

 I think he also loves his papa. With Meadow in school we spend a lot of the time with just the two of us.

He gets around in his own way by twisting his body and rolling.

I'm always wondering, "How exactly did he get across the room?"

He sits on his own, but is still a little off balance.

He doesn't sit still when you change his diaper.

He likes to flail, roll and do anything but stay still.

So far he's had carrots, applesauce, sweet potatoes, winter squash, apples and blueberries. He's loved everything he's tried and always asks for more by yelling. He's still not very coordinated to feed himself.

He does hold his own bottle from time to time.

He still wakes up 1-3 times at night, but is still on his own schedule of bed by 8 and awake by 8. He takes two long naps during the day.

I love those long naps. I get a lot work done.

His hair is all even in color and length.

He still gets shy when people look at him. He will smile then look away. He's also started noticing strangers and gets sad if someone he doesn't know holds him.

The Women Take the Kids Camping to William O'Brien State Park

Scott had to work this weekend, which kept us home for once. Seeing as this is my first summer in 8 years that I don't have to work weekends I couldn't just stay home. She just can't. Sorry Minneapolis friends.

Beaver Creek State Park Hiking Club (with a Layover at Frontenac State Park)

After we dropped Meadow off at school on Friday morning I made some last second plans to camp in southern Minnesota this weekend. Once we picked up Meadow we headed towards Red Wing. Red Wing Brewing has some really great pizza. The crust is something special. So we stopped there for dinner. Getting back to pre-COVID life is a bit strange, but we're getting used to it.

Duluth For The Day

 After work I decided to drive up to Duluth to visit my little brother Blake. Scott would have come with me if he didn't have to work. Like most streets in Duluth he lives on a steep hill. I couldn't remember how to park on a hill so I copied the car in front of me.   He gave me a tour of his house and when we were in his backyard I heard rushing water. There was a trail and some woods that we followed down a hill to Chester Creek. I had no idea he lived so close to a park.   Or a waterfall.     We walked a ways to find an old ski jump. Blake said he climbed it when he first moved here and a month later the city took the stairs down.   The ski lift is still in use for sledding.  Walking back to his house we passed another ski jump. Back when this was first built it was the tallest in the world. During World War II 50 feet was taken off the top to give to the war effort.  The reason I came to visit Blake was mainly
