We went to the doctor on Wednesday for Danielle's belated 9 month checkup. Apparently slow verbal development runs in the family, as Danielle is not saying 'ma' or 'da' yet or mimicing our sounds. Danielle seems to be fine with physical development, working those fingers efficiently to eat often. She has also started to army crawl, pulling herself up, and taking steps with assistance.
Coming out of the doctor's office Michaela ran to the window, pointed at a car in the parking lot and told us 'Gramma'. The car highly resembled Dan & Linda's tan car. Michaela has started to point out anything that reminds her of family.
