We just got back from our vacation in fabulous Colorado. It's so relaxing and beautiful out there! Now I know why Derek has such fond memories vacationing there as a child. We did a lot of sight seeing and shopping - and we definitely got some use out of our stroller. We took Rowan with us everywhere we went (except for the one afternoon that we went golfing) so it was a lot of work! She's so heavy now so getting her in and out of strollers and car seats was beginning to be a chore by the end of the week :) Plus I think she was getting sick of it. She just wanted to run around...literally!
Rowan also started walking 3 weeks ago, right after she turned 9 months. She started off a little wobbly, but is cruising all over the place now. She practically runs -- it's so cute. She usually has one or both arms straight up in the air too...I'm thinking for balance? Also very cute!
Her walking adventures sure made for a busy vacation. Since she was so mobile, she was into everything. All she wanted to do was open cabinet doors (she was amazed that they actually opened, unlike the baby proofed ones at home) and she also really really wanted to stick her fingers into the box fan. We had to watch her like a hawk!
Here's a video of her favorite place in Colorado - the Denver airport! She LOVED all the open space. She was walking up to strangers and yelling at them. So funny.
