Lift Off

We have crawlers! Owen and Mason LOVE their new found independence! They have perfected crawling and are just about pros at pulling up on anything and everything. They just need to realize that if you let go, you fall! It's not easy but we are all getting used to the bumps and bruises that come along with mobility.

Owen and Mason have also become little copy cats! It is so fun to watch! They'll copy us or each other-it is so cute to see them interact with one another! Both of them clap along even if all we do is say "yaaay." Owen loves to dance when he hears his toys playing music (he bops up and down) and he'll even do it on command even if there is no music. He's also learned how to click his tongue back at you. Mason has learned how to drink from a straw! He still mainly chews on it but if he wants a drink he'll suck it right up!
The official weights at the 9 month pedi visit were Owen: 21 lbs. 1 oz. (60%) and Mason: 19 lbs. 11 oz. (37%). Both are 28" tall.

We had a scare the other night with Mason. He was all tucked in to the back seat of the stroller as Aaron and I shopped for carpet. All of a sudden we heard a noise and saw him falling to the ground, head first. He apparently found a way to climb over and out of the back seat. We took him to the ER and his CAT scan came out negative. Thank God!

This coming Saturday we'll be getting our NEW CARPET!! Hooray! No more ugly blue stuff! We also set up a play yard for the babies to play in and they love it. Aaron and I love it too because it gives us peace of mind when we have to leave the room. We know they'll be safe!

Owen Claps Along

This was so cool! Mommy claps and bangs, and Owen follows along!


Well, the little guys are progressing really fast now! Their crawling is coming right along, and they're getting better at getting themselves sitting from their tummies.

Here's Owen crawling last Sunday:

...and here's Mason crawling (he wasn't in the best mood at the time, though!)

Almost Crawling

Our house has begun the transformation for crawlers! We purchased a new bed for our guest room, which is now becoming our play room-a twin with a trundle gives us so much more room to play! This weekend we are baby proofing the house and lowering the crib mattresses!

Owen has a new favorite game. He loves to give a short little "daaa" or "baaa" or "aaah" or whatever sound comes out to try to "scare" you. He wants you to do it back and when you do he cracks up and does it again. We got it on video-and to add to the humor, he also has the hiccups! Hopefully Aaron can get the video posted soon!

We go for our 9 month, yes, I said NINE month check up on Friday! I can't believe they are already 9 months!!! My money is on Mason-20 lbs. and Owen-22 lbs!
