9 Months

Tomorrow Penny will be 9 months old, and my how the time has flown by since we got her home. As you can see from the pictures she is now standing with the assistance of our coffee table. She hasn't pulled herself up just yet, but she's starting to work on it. She has also become very mobile in the last few weeks. She moves herself from room to room whenever it fancies her. She has learned how to make a mess by pulling things off of our movie/CD shelf, and she finds this quite entertaining. She weighed in at 13 lbs 10 oz at her 9 month appt and was 26.5 inches long. She is well within the normal on her head size (must mean she's got daddy's big brain), she is on the charts for length even without adjusting for her prematurity. However, her weight only barely makes the charts with the adjustment, but this doesn't seem to concern the doc considering she is ahead of schedule with motor skills (without age adjustment). The doc said she may just stay long and lean since she is becoming very mobile and will be burning off most of the extra intake with her activity level. Until next time.
