9 Months Old!!!
Boys, you are 9 months old. I can not believe it. I blinked and now you are crawling all over the place and eating finger foods. How did this happen? I was just laying in bed, as big as a whale, with a belly that was not at all normal looking, complaining about my back hurts, and anxiously waiting to meet you two. Now you are 9 months old and my back still hurts from carrying you two around, but now I am complaining because you are growing to fast!
I know I am biased, but I think you two and your big brother are just about the cutest kids I have ever seen. You all have the most beautiful blue eyes (that you did not get after your father or I). You two are bald just like your big brother was, and I love it!! I love bald babies!
You two are growing like weeds, and just hit the 17lb mark. You have gained 4 pounds each since March 9th! Yay!! You have 3 bottles a day, breakfast and dinner, and nurse in between. You are consistently sleeping through the night and we normally don't see you from 730pm until 6am, and that is fine with me! When you wake up in the mornings your dad and I always bring you to our bed, just like we do Aidan until 7 or 730, so we can get a few more minutes of sleep. Well that has recently ended, because you will not have it! You two are stubborn and want to play! So our day starts everyday at 6am. There is one benefit to getting up that early, I now have time to shower in the mornings before you dad leaves for work. I now don't have to wait until Sundays to bath myself! (I kid, I kid...well, kind of.)
Landon, you are a crazy one. I think you are going to be my trouble maker. You are quick and loud! You and Aidan love to make noises back and forth and each other and we love to hear you copy his sounds! You started crawling first and can now put yourself into the sitting position.You are very stubborn and will try to get into everything! You usually get stuck and throw a fit until I come and help you. You love food and picked right up on finger foods! You have to be the sweetest little baby, and it breaks my heart what you are going through. You are so strong and one day, you will have a really cool story to tell your friends, and an awesome scar to go with that story. I love you so very much sweet Lan.
Grayson, bear. You follow Landon's lead most of the time. He shows you the way as the big brother (by only a minute, but I am sure that he will remind you for years to come). You are so laid back and happy. We do not hear you cry very often, so when you do we know you need us. Your little crawl is so funny, I need to video it. You not only do the army crawl with your little legs, but your arms as well. It looks like you use your elbows to move around, like you are in sand. Silly boy. You are sometimes picky with new foods, but that is ok because you are showing your personality. Your big brother love you so much and are very affectionate with you. Landon loves to suck on your head and you often have the marks to show it. I love you so much Gray!
Boys, we finally got on a schedule!! Yay! Since you have gained weight, and we no longer have to feed on demand, I started what I think, works great for our whole family!
6am wake up and play
9-930 Bottle 1
11-1130 Wake up and play
1230 Bottle 2
3-330 Wake up and play
Yay!!! I love it! As much as I tried with Aidan, we never got on a good schedule, so this is LIFE changing for us!
