9 Months old

We have been so busy I've barely had time to sit down at the computer, or anywhere else for that matter.  We started music & swim class last week, Annabelle had a great time at both.  She enjoyed playing with all the different instruments and all the singing in both classes.  We also went to a place called Color me Mine and made a plate with our hand prints on it one evening with the moms group that we go out with.  It was a lot of fun, I included a picture of the plate we made. 

This past weekend was a big one for us, more for me.  We had a wedding to go to in Erie and it was my first time away from Annabelle for more than a couple hours.  She stayed with my mom & dad so I knew she was in good hands.  I didn't cry at all when we left and she was a perfect angel all day for Grandma & PaPa.  I included a picture of Brian and I at the wedding since I don't have many pictures of me dressed up these days.  There is also a picture of Annabelle's cousin Sydney holding her and one with PaPa.

We had our 6 month evaluation with Early Intervention this week.  In the next couple weeks we are going to be starting OT on top of the PT weekly sessions and the monthly speech therapy.  I'm hoping that OT can help us with improving her upper body strength and starting to work on the fine motor skills.  She has been doing fantastic with using her hands more as you can tell from some of the pictures.  Her legs are very strong, she's standing very well and loves to play in her bounce seat and exersaucers.  We are getting closer to sitting on her own.  I think now that she's on new reflux medicine she will be able to focus less on her stomach hurting and more on developing those skills!  We are hopeful that in the next couple blogs we will have some big news on milestones we've hit!
