Nora had her 9 month well baby check up with Dr. H yesterday. She will given the seal of “Perfect”, not that there was ever any doubt 😉 She is growing well. Rocking the somewhere in between peanut and average size range. She demonstrated several of her recently acquired skills including waving at the doc when she came in the room and clapping and cheering when found out it was a shot free appointment :) The doctor was very impressed with her development and was not at all surprised she was already pulling up on furniture and trying to cruise. Her predicted that Nora would be an early walker, we shall see.

As I mentioned last week she has recently had a milestone explosion. Learning to crawl, sit up, pull up, walking on her knees while holding onto something, clapping and waving all mastered in a couple of weeks. She is all over the place and super fast. She can hands and knees crawl but prefers her own little version of the army crawl to get around, she is so, so fast. She spends most of the day pulling up on things and trying to figure out how to use that as a means to get around. It will not be long now and she’ll be cruising. She is already stretching out to reach close by objects and trying to figure out if she can go from one thing to the next without having to sit down and crawl. Once she figures that out there will be no keeping up with her! She is one determined little girl.

As much as she loves to explore and play she is also super cuddly. She loves giving me hugs and kisses. Every so often, in the middle of her play, she’ll crawl up to me and climb into my lap for a snuggle. I love it!

She is the sweetest, happiest baby. The big girls adore her and play so well with her. She recently graduated to having a bath in the big tub and Anna and Maya fight over who gets to have a bath with her! And Nora adores her sisters every bit as much as they adore her. She watches them and loves to join them in their play. It is so wonderful to watch them all interact. Melts my heart every time.

We love you to pieces baby girl!
