Theo @ 12 Months

Our little buddy is no longer a little baby. I felt like the first 6 months of his life were slow and the last 6 months flew by.


He loves pulling things out of drawers and off shelves, laughing at Meadow, eating anything, going in cupboards, playing with water, being held, dancing to music, making bubbles.


He ate a black olive and wasn't sure, then the next day gobbled them up. He has yet to eat something he doesn't like.


He still prefers crawling to trying to walk. He will walk if he holds your hands or using his walker.


He still has no teeth.


He's learned to whistle and says uh aw.


He's much better at sleeping during the night. He mostly sleeps through the night or gets up once. If he does wake up it's between 5-7am. If he gets the chance he will sleep in.

He still nurses but only 3-4 times a day.

It's all true. He's a sweetheart. Our sweetheart.

Meadow's 3rd Birthday Party with Special Guests Mr. Mike and G.G.

My parents called the day before they arrived saying that they were coming for the weekend. My mom had to work late on Friday so they left early Saturday. This weekend turned out to be super humid and hot. As soon as they arrived I suggested we go to the Science Museum. Mr. Mike was astounded by the the museum. Partway through our visit we took a break to see a national parks documentary in the Omnitheater. This was Meadow's first movie.  I was surprised to see a lowly midwest locale featured. At one point in the film they went ice climbing at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. So cool. There was so much to see here that we didn't quite get to everything. And this is the second time we've been here in the past few months.  It was actually less busy on a Saturday than during the week when school groups are here. As we were trying to leave we kept finding more things to do. I had a chance to see space. You look astounded. Must be

Grand Rapids to the Gunflint Trail: A Work-cation

Scott had a few jobs in Northern Minnesota to do so he packed them all in to one week to make a trip out of it.  I offer a special rate for my 360 photography to Minnesota tourism businesses through Explore Minnesota.  We would be making stops in and around Grand Rapids, Duluth, Grand Marais and the end of the Gunflint Trail. Of course I have to bring the family along.  If I'm going to have to take off work to stay home with the kids, I might as well come along too.

Honeymoon But With Kids: Fayette Historic State Park, Kitch-iti-kipi and Lake Michigan Camping

Day 6 This day would see us exploring the south shore of the Upper Peninsula, which is oddly the North Shore of Lake Michigan. We luckily had a break in the rain when we headed to Fayette Historic State Park . We were surprised to see an almost empty parking lot when we arrived. This was one of our favorite stops 10 years back. Theo found something stinky in the old furnaces. Eventually Meadow wasn't bored. It's kind of amazing how much survived after it was no longer a vacation town. I was hoping more restoration had been done since our last visit but that didn't seem to be the case.  I think they wanted to maintain this weathered look, but the roofs had started growing moss. It was still fun to revisit.  It's hard to imagine this place being a bustling town.  Scott taught the kids how to play checkers in the children's exhibit. This would spark their obsession with the game for the rest of the trip.  Someone wasn't happy that he lost.  This kid cannot stand lo
