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!

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…

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping.Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative.
On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.

Katrina and Dennis's Big Day!

I don't shoot nearly enough weddings. I'm just not good at the whole marketing aspect.The one's I end up photographing are, like this one, family or through the grapevine.
This time around I'm shooting my big (little) sister's wedding to Dennis, a man I respect immensely. I got to hang out with him a few times in Chicago and then a whole week in San Jose. I really looked forward to the bachelor party with the guys and wasn't disappointed.
While the women got ready and after I helped setup the venue I came back to hang with the dudes and ostensibly get dressed. As you can see above we drank some beer and booze and shot the shit.

My big brother, Colin, was the officiant and was really excited for his parking pass that was included with his ordination packet.
All the women involved in the wedding gathered into Katie's room to get our hair done. Olive was just there to entertain us.

And the bride is ready.
At some point we had to take taxis the mile or so up Wab…
