July 6th was Emily’s nine month birthday. Can I tell you how relieved I am that we’ve made it to this point?
She is doing wonderfully. She started crawling early last week and that same day started pulling up on furniture…I have a feeling she is going to be the reason we have to baby-proof the house!
In early May she had tubes put in her ears after having seven ear infections in less than five months. The tubes have made a WORLD of difference, and since then we’ve only made two unnecessary trips to the doctor. (Old habits die hard. “Emily’s crying a lot, she must have an ear infection.” Turns out that sometimes she just likes to cry.)
I took her to the doctor for her 9-month appointment yesterday. She is currently 19 lbs 2 oz (50th percentile) and 28 inches tall (75th percentile).
I took her in for some pictures today, and I’m having a horrible time picking my favorite.
