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. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho

Honeymoon: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears . I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

Two Years As Homeowners

I have to admit, being a homeowner is hard. There are a million things I want to do with this house. The two things that are keeping me from doing those things are money and time. I hate when people use the excuse "I don't have time" because really you do, you just put what you think are priorities first.  Were also not the handiest people. I have many projects waiting for the help of my dad. Like sanding our floors. I've never done anything like it before so it scares the crap out of me to try it. I can only hope that a year from now things will look a lot different and that I can maybe get a few things that I'd like to see done, get done.  And with that here are some progress photos from the last 2 years.  Our closet 2010 2012 2010 2012 Upstairs bathroom 2010 2011 2012 I hope this is finished before next year.
