Melissa Amber Seals
At 9 months old, Melissa was more mobile each day. She was crawling and cruising, and had taken a few tentative steps. She loved to hold Mommy's or Daddy's fingers and walk around whenever she got the chance. She had started solid foods and LOVED Cheerios. She also ate bread, cookies, and french fries - just about anything you'd give her. Like her brother, she was a mooch!
Melissa had 4 teeth, two on top and two on the bottom. She happily used them to bite Mommy's knees or anybody's fingers!
At her check-up with Dr. Jarvis on December 11, 2000, Melissa weighed 17 lbs., 6 oz., and was 30¼ inches tall. The doctor felt she was too skinny, so he said to let her eat as much as she wanted. No problem there! It looked like Melissa would be as tall as Aaron and Daddy. (Mommy was beginning to feel really short!)
