And the movement has begun! She started crawling a week before she hit 9 months old. It seemed to come all in one day. Over Memorial Day weekend she figured out that she could stand with things and "dance". It's become very difficult to get her down for naps and bed now because it's a fun game for her to stand in her crib and "talk" (not using an inside voice either). Miss Jessica at daycare taught her the "shimmy shimmy" dance. She didn't do it very long because she more occupied with moving and crawling, but she would tilt her head to the side, smile and shake her whole body back and forth.
We went for her 9 month check-up and she weighed 18 lbs 9 oz and was 28 1/4 inches long. She's still in the 50th percentile for weight and 75th percentile for height. Nothing has changed there. The doctor discussed the possibility of her having asthma with me. It breaks my heart that she would have to deal with something like that at such a young age, but it sounds as if it's more common than I thought? She has been coughing at night and it's gotten to the point where she'll vomit. It had been happening for a couple weeks so I decided to mention it. They put her on albuterol, which really scared me to do, but I don't think they would do anything to hurt her, so we're trying it. It's been almost a week and she does better at night, so hopefully this will be the remedy?

The rest of the day all I could picture was my baby sitting there as an outcast and nobody would go up to her and play. Poor Peyton...I'll teach you what Aunt Marie taught us growing up....."it's always better out than in".
