okay, this post is SERIOUSLY overdue. the babies were nine months old on august 24. i wanted to get this up before it's time to do a 10 (TEN!?!?!?!?! ack!) month post.
look at them! oh my goodness, i just love them more than i thought possible.
they are so healthy. and happy. and FUNNY!
they look so different from eachother now. it's funny- when they were tiny, they looked identical. and now they look so dissimilar!
lucy has been known to crawl up to cate and push her over by the face. then cate has been known to sit up and pull lucy's hair. and then cate starts screaming while lucy looks at me with a completely bewildered look on her face.
they are OBSESSED with bath time. but bath time gives me a heart attack. last night lucy lunged face first into the bubbles, and emerged, coughing and spewing, with a beard. then when i sat her up, she fell over backwards (grinning the entire time). sigh.
they both are great sleepers. not great nappers (we are in the car most of the time), but they go down about 7 and get up about 6. i'll take it!
they are out of the car seat carriers (that made me sad- they are not brand new babies anymore!) and into the britax rear facing "big girl" seats. i LOVE our phil&teds stroller, it has made my life so much easier. i've mastered pushing them in it and pulling a grocery cart behind me.
they will eat almost anything. the other night they had a feast of white beans, banana, strawberry, bowtie pasta, green beans. all table food, all self-fed...and they loved it.
such a BIG girl. and happy. the chunkiest,happiest baby i've EVER known.
because of her general temperament, it is HEARTBREAKING when she cries.
she moves slowly and she's content w/ that. she's not in a rush. she loves getting up on her knees and pulling up.
two teeth (bottom middle)- i don't really know when she's teething, she just suddenly has teeth
amazingly beautiful hair and eyebrows
will fall asleep on me if she's really tired
giggles and giggles when her big sisters pay attention to her.
says "dada" and "mama" to us.
gets VERY excited when the food comes out
still obsessed with her binkie
loves to do the bulldog face, especially when she doesn't want something
is a CRAZY snacker. the mum mums case above is mainly for her. i think she's trying to catch up.
says "mama" "dada" and "ah duh"- all done
mama is also for mum mum
toys with the idea of a binkie. will gnaw on one when she is really tired or upset.
has never fallen asleep on me, no matter how tired she is. she wants her bed.
a ridiculously quick and agile crawler. she's gone in a FLASH. loves pulling up and grabbing.
is a face clawer and grabber.
still shrieks like a monkey, or a bird. it HURTS my ears!
my cup runneth over. x2. :)
happy monday. xxo,s
