The Last 30 Days with Walker!

Walker's past month was his biggest one yet...he began sitting up by himself, crawling, started pulling up, and did a lot of dancing.  He has a new sense of freedom, and with that comes more determination to experiment and less patience with me when he doesn't get what he wants.  It all began back on August 19th, when Steve was out of town on a business trip.

The kids and I were all in one room, and then the big kids and I left that room, leaving Walker on the floor.  I guess he got upset that he was left behind, so he decided to follow us.  He didn't crawl the "normal" way, but did his very own army crawl down the hallway after us.  See for yourself below...

Walker loves to take showers

Over the next week, he began getting stronger and faster.  Now he tries to pull up on anything that he can...the fireplace, tables, baby gates and his crib.  He loves to play with new toys, and still adores Beckham (and any other dogs he comes into contact with).  He is a happy baby with a wonderful personality.  He "dances" almost every time he hears music, and has sampled his first popsicle this month.

At his 8th month doctor appointment, Walker weighed in at 20lbs (50th percentile), and was 28.5 inches long (75-90th percentile).
