Emma - 9 month update

Emma went to the doctor this week for her 9 month check up. She weighs 17 pounds and is 27 inches tall. She's in the 25th percentile for weight and the 50th for height.

She loves to read books, and will even sit and turn the pages through her own books.

She loves music too...she starts bouncing and dancing when she hears the radio, one of her toys, or even a commercial on the tv.

The last two weeks she has grown in leaps and bounds...or rather in crawling and standing!
One day I looked over at Emma playing in her gate and I saw this:
And now every morning when we get Emma up we see this:
She is super fast and crawls on her knees now. She's so determined that she can get anywhere in the room that she wants now (even up the stairs). And sometimes when she concentrates, her tongue slips out. Wonder where she got that from?

We are so thrilled with how much Emma is growing and are loving how much fun she is and what an amazing gift we've been given.

We love you, munchkin!
