We took Em to the Dr today for her 9 month check-up. Can't believe it's been 9 months already. Everything went well - no shots today! yay!! She weighs in at a quite small 17 lbs 8oz (27%). She is 27.5" long (50%) and her head circumference is 45.2 cm (83%). Now - as you can see her head is MUCH larger compared the rest of her body. The Dr said he normally in this case - would say she needs to have more calorie intake - but because of her plagiocephaly (i.e. helmet issues) her head circumference is different than most normal kids. So he's not too worried about her small size. Especially because she seems happy and is sleeping well and meeting all of her development milestones.
She has really started talking like CRAZY in the last 2 weeks. You would not believe how much she has to say. I think she got her mom's gene in that one :) She's so funny. She has this stuffed puppy dog with rabbit ears (it's from Easter!!) and the other morning she was carrying on a VERY serious conversation with the dog and then all of a sudden she stopped and looked at it...and bit it's nose! I never laughed so hard!!!
She has learned how to get from a sit to crawl and just about figuring out how to get from a crawl to a sit. She isn't walking around the furniture quite yet - but is close. She just doesn't know how to pull herself up yet (and I'm quite happy about that!!). So for now - she's still a floor duster.
Here she is eating her veggies:
We have lots of photos this month. She started swim lessons, she went to Texas and did lots of other fun things this month.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Here we are getting ready to go to lunch before the Dallas World Aquarium. It was so much fun. The girls loved it. Baby Braenna is behind Mikaiya - so you can't see her - but she came along too!
Here is Emily getting ready to grab Braenna's face - which it what she liked to do - so you had to watch her really close. She really liked when Braenna had a bow in her hair. Emme would just rip it right out!!
Here is little Braenna. What a sweetie!
