Happy Birthday Emma!!
Emma had her 8th month birthday on Sunday. Hard to believe its been so long - we have all commented that this one has gone much faster than the others. At a Drs appointment about a week ago, she weighed in at 21 1/2 pounds - whew. And that is solid and dense - so she is a HANDFUL to carry. She sits well on her own - when we place her there - but if she falls, she's stuck. She pushes up onto her hands really well when on her tummy, and yesterday got up onto her knees. But she is showing signs of imitating Samantha and crawling BACKWARDS before forwards. I'm appreciating the "non-mobile" phase as long as possible because it won't be long before I'll have to empty the coffee table of magazines and pull out the baby gates to contain her!!
