9 month old tantrums

Is it common for a 9 month old to have tantrums - for example when she doesn't want to sit In the pram she makes a real fuss.
And she cries a lot in the evenings.
Please advice

Yep, she is developing her own mind and wants. Things to help with tantrums....make sure the tantrum is not due to being hungry, tired, hot as these make even adults cranky. Then it is a thing of picking your battles. For example a battle I pick not to fight is on days we are staying home my daughter can pick whatever she wants to wear as long as weather appropriate. A battle I chose to fight was not letting my daughter open a cereal box in the store while shopping. I knew if I let her she would open every box every time we shopped. So I decided I would put up with a screaming child for one shopping trip to prevent it being an issue at every shopping trip.
