Theo @ 9 Months

 At 9 months Theo weighs 17 pounds and is 28" tall.

He eats three times a day and prefers to feed himself. So far he likes everything he has tried.

Babies are so much easier to please than 5-year-olds.

He currently loves Meadow, finding things to eat on the floor, crawling around discovering new things, snuggling with a blanket, jumping in his jumper bumper.

You always have to watch him as he explores. He likes to grab anything and everything.

He says da-da and ma-ma.

And pa-pa. He must really like his dad.

He still doesn't have any teeth.

And he won't let us check. He refuses to open it when you want to see. Of course the rest of the time he's smiling.


He has mastered his pincer grab.

He's starting to crawl more on his knees and pull himself up.

Meadow was at about the same point, but she didn't actually walk until much later.

He still goes to bed around 8 and wakes up around 7:30. And still wakes up 1-4 times at night.

He's getting better at long car rides and now mostly sleeps during the drives or watches Meadow.

That's our road trip boy!

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
