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.

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine. We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation. Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas.  I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years.  Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place. Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home. When Scott told me his mom wanted us to c

How Can We Make Life Less Boring?

This weeks bread is Ciabatta. Scott had made this a few summers ago so we thought we'd try a variation and add caramelized onions and herbs. Nothing like cutting onions in the morning.  I'm really hoping Peter Reinhardt will find our blog and see that I'm making everything in his book and want to do a movie with me. It'll be called Brooke and Peter. I'm also gunning for a movie once Mark Bittman passes away. OK, I'm not. That' just weird. We did make oatmeal raisin pancakes from Bittman's Food Matters cookbook. Oatmeal pancakes? Yes please! These turned out much better than the oatmeal raisin waffles we had a few months back. I tackled this darn puzzle again.  Peanut (our cat if you didn't already know) loves whining. Mostly he wants to go outside or in the basement. This time I gave in and he had some kind of deja vu to his alleycat youth. Scott played on his phone while Peanut played outside. We both t

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H
