Emma's Eighth Month, February 2003 (29 images)

In Emma's eighth month, we traveled to Southern California to visit Michelle's brother Jim and his family. Emma's cousin Taylor spent a lot of time playing with her. Here are some pictures of Taylor's baseball tryout.

Emma learned a lot in her eighth month. Shortly after turning 7 months she learned to go from a sitting position to a crawling position and back. A week later she learned to crawl, pull herself up on furniture, and cruise the furniture. She wanted us to hold her hands so she could walk all over the house. We took a video of Emma walking with help. In addition to crawling, she started to babble and make more noises this month. When she turned 8 months, she said "Ma Ma" for the first time!
