Monkey Update

Well, I thought that I would let you all know how Monkey is doing. I took her in yesterday to the clinic to get some meds for a cold that she has and they told me that she weighs 21lbs. 10ozs. and was nearly 28in. long (and she isn't even 8 months yet!). HOLY MONKEY!!! What a little chunker :) She loves green beans and bananas with oatmeal, and this morning was standing up in her crib when I went in to get her. She can turn on her mobile and fish tank in her crib and is pulling herself all over the place. She is such a joy and we are so lucky to have her in our family!

Here is Monkey in the sink, where she gets her baths. I try to get her one every night but it is more like every other night that she actually gets one. She has a lot of fun with the wash rag and cup, and really likes splashing the bubbles until they are all gone.

7 Months Already!

Monkey is 7 months old already! I can hardly believe it!!! She is become mobile and is army crawling all over the place. I liked this picture since she was trying to crawl away to eat the leaves.

New School Pics

I was so upset with the kids school pics that they participated in re-takes today. While I was looking at the pics I realized even re-takes might not get me what I wanted so I took some shots before school. I was really happy with how they turned out.

I had to sit Natalie in the driveway and not by the house since she just wanted to eat everything on the ground. She is such a little stinker :)

Who's That???

It was really dark when we left so we took some pictures at the church. We have GI Joe, a Rock Star, Obi Wan Kenobi, and a Skeleton. Katie loved her costume and the beard. People thought that she was a cross between Obi Wan and Princess Leah.


So we did better this year and actually made it to get pumpkins but they almost did not get carved. We had a crazy week and I had an errand to run right before the carnival. When I came home, this is what I found....

A Carving party!!! Sorry there are not more pics of the actual process and the outcome but we were nutty, nuts to try and get them done before the party.

This was the favorite.

Rings on Monkey

We were sitting the other night with the Missionaries and our friends the Warner's for a lesson for Tim Warner's baptism. Lewis was sitting at the table with the baby and she was fussy so I put a handful of Cheerios on her tray and Lewis started licking them and sticking them to her forehead. It was really funny but now all the kiddos think that this is a good idea. She doesn't mind too much and just eats them off her face.
