Vanessa is 10 months old today. She had her 9 month appointment earlier this week (because we were in Germany when she turned 9 months old!). She was 27.5 inches tall and 20 pounds 8 ounces.
Yesterday was an exciting day for Vanessa because she signed her first sign language word -- ceiling fan (which is the gesture you would imagine)! So now I'm more motivated to sign to her more often.
