Walker Family Reunion

Monroe is now 9 months old and weighs 26 pounds! Our biggest baby :) She has moved up to a size 5 diaper, is eating 7 ounces per feeding, loves baby food, is crawling everywhere, has 6 teeth and puts everything in her mouth. Mostly she loves just being around people,she never likes to be left alone, a very social girl. :) She can now officially wave, high five and can give a mean scowl. She can pull herself up on furniture and step side to side. I am secretly hoping that the big step of walking will take a few more months. Elise and Carter both walked at 9 months and I am hoping Monroe isn't as adventurous as they were. Ha ha! Last week we went to Daniel's family Reunion in Wyoming. This was my longest camping trip to date. It was fun to meet new people (Daniel's Mom's side the Walkers). The kids got to ride horses, go swimming at the reservoir, play volleyball, go on nature walks, make smores, ride four wheelers, play horseshoes, make lots of crafts, play soccer, but mostly I think they liked being able to get dirty and play outside for days. Monroe was such a trooper, she would sleep anywhere, didn't complain about the heat and she even got to try some new foods.  Yay Monroe! I however had such a sore arm from carrying her everywhere for days and days. Oh well. All in all it was a good time. Until next time.

This happy girl is off the charts fabulous! 110% for weight and 95th for height! Way to aim high girl! These 9 months have flown by! 

Daniel had a mishap at work while helping to move some furniture. The top hutch on a desk fell off and slammed his hand into a wall. Ouch! Result a bad break on his pinkie.
