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.

Our Wedding

Brooke and I aren't traditionalists. We didn't want to sit through a half-hour ceremony, but we also didn't think eloping was the answer. One thing that we did do was spend the night before the wedding in separate houses.   Even though Scott came with me to pick out my dress I still didn't want him to see me before the wedding. I had to keep one tradition. I woke up early to meet Brooke's dad at the Theodore Wirth Picnic Pavilion, only to find out that he was meeting me a couple hours later. I ended up getting most of the decorations over to the venue with my dad, sister and Dennis.  Scott had texted me in the morning, "I'm supposed to merry your dad right now right?". I was like, merry my dad? What he meant to type, but autocorrect corrected for him was meet.  Since Brooke came over to the venue to help, I spent most of the rest of the day with Blake, Colin and Olger. We ate some Pair of Dice Pizza and

Mankato's Minneopa Waterfalls and Bison in Spring

  Another weekend, another hiking trip. This time Minneopa State Park. We started with the Hiking Club Trail . The Hiking Club is a great way to get the kids excited about our hikes. Rather than just going out for a hike they're searching for the secret password along the trail.   Where there's rocks Meadow will climb. 

An End of Spring Break Visit to the Three Lakes Cottage

Meadow's on spring break so a trip to the cottage it is. The weekend called for rain, rain, rain but we don't care.   We all brought along our rain suits just in case it never let up. Even with just a drizzle Theo put on his suit right away. I think this is the earliest I've seen the ice off the lake. Should have brought our swimsuits. Brooke used to always be the first one swimming as a kid. Maybe Meadow, Brooke and Theo can keep that tradition alive. Me? Probably not. Theo must think his rain suit is completely waterproof. He went well past his boots.
