I went to my 9 month checkup yesterday. I am an itty bitty woman. I weigh 15 lbs 14 oz which means I am only in the 5%ile. So, 95% of all babies are fatter than me!!! Oh well. I was also 27 1/2 inches tall which is in the 50%ile. My doctor said I was growing wonderfully.

 I have been crawling all over the place. I don't really like doing the traditional hands and knees crawl, so I scoot and hop or just do what mommy calls the "army crawl". I also will pull myself up on ANYthing that is handy. I have also started kissing everything and anyone! I kiss all of our animals constantly! Mommy says I am going to get a hairball.

I just love our swimming pool. Mommy takes me swimming every night. I think it is just the coolest.

One more thing, I am going to be a big sister!!!! I don't know exactly what that means, but Mommy and Daddy are pretty excited about it. Mommy says I will get to meet my brother or sister in 7 1/2 months.
