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.

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

Fox Valley Thanksgiving 2022

As always, we made the trip to Little Chute and the Fox Valley for Thanksgiving. Since we don't eat Thanksgiving dinner until the evening. I suggested this year we drive on Thanksgiving day instead of leaving the night before.  First thing when we arrived, G.G. was already giving Meadow gifts. My mom is always spoiling her.   Then we were off to Brittany and Jeff's for Thanksgiving fun. Theo got the longest piece of cheese. Marina showing us her island on Animal Crossing.  I made some maple whipped cream just before everyone arrived. All the cousins wanted to do at first was watch each other game. Theo stayed with us when the kiddos finally started to play something other than Switch. Eventually Theo warmed up to playing with his cousins.  Look at this dumb picture. At least that's what G.G. would say. Chelsea surprised the kids with this cute cookie decorating kit that looks like Thanksgiving leftovers.  Theo just watched. Silly little guy. This cranberry bread that Britt
