Utah State Graduation!

It happened....the day finally came, Daniel graduated from Utah State University!!!! I am so proud of him. It is not an easy feat to go back to school after starting a family and working full time, but you did it. You stuck with it and never gave up. It was an amazing/fun/exhausting day. We are so grateful for all the family that came out to support Daniel. We attended two graduation ceremonies at the school and then had a big graduation bash at the church, which was good because we had 60 people come out for our special day. :) Congrats Daniel! We love you!

All ready to head out to the first big ceremony with the entire University. His maile lei smelled AMAZING!

I like how the girl in front of him is named McKenna :) Also I might have gotten a little excited in the moment so don't mind the crazy, crazy yelling. ;)

First Lost Tooth!

Carter lost his first tooth! He was very excited and was wondering for a while when this would happen. His permanent tooth finally came in enough to push his baby tooth out. Carter was a very very happy guy! Most of the pics from this post were from Daniel's work party at the park. Let's just say Monroe had a blast! Enjoy :)

18 Months!

Monroe is now 18 months old. Seriously time goes by so fast! She is in the 90th percentile for height and is still off the charts for weight at 29.9 pounds. She has lots of personality and has silly facial expressions.  She loves her dollies, her blankie and her pacifier the most. She still loves everything we feed her and loves to try and color. Too early to tell, but she might be a lefty. She can say a few words like Hi, Uh Oh, Bye, Mom, Poppa and Leese (for Elise). She tries to copy us with whatever we are doing. She can follow commands by putting things in the trash or getting something for us.  Her favorite TV shows are Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood and Super Why. She also loves the PBS Kids App on Mommy's phone. Best of all Monroe still love to snuggle! Yay! She had her first Sunday at nursery at church and didn't cry at all. Nice work lady! Happy 1/2 birthday! We love you :)
