The babies are 9 months old!
One major change in the last month is that they're on the go more than ever now!
They have also really started to interact with each other more. They are always looking for the other one or trying to see what the other one is doing or playing with. They have also started holding hands when they're in the highchairs next to each other or in the jogging stroller together.

His Bink is his best friend. He still loves his soccer ball and jumperoo and he now loves this toy iPad.
This big boy will eat anything, but lately he has really started liking the cheese snacks from Gerber and any kind of Puff from Gerber.
He loves crawling under and through everything. We always find him under the exersaucer or under the kitchen table. He loves playing in the bathtub and outside.
He's a good sleeper at night and we usually have to wake him up in the morning to get ready for day care. He's usually pretty good at taking naps with the exception of a few short naps where he fights it.
He is now sitting up on his own all the time. He still army crawls but he does it pretty fast and gets where he wants to go. He is pulling up on things but just to his knees. He will stand up if we stand him up against something. He drinks from a sippy cup and feeds himself finger foods. He has 2 teeth!
"Dada" and he waves "Bye Bye"
He is our sweet, curious yet cautious, happy, smiley, silly boy. He has started doing what we call "crazy arms" where he lays on his back or when he is sitting in his highchair and he just waves both arms around crazy and he gets so excited. He also gets so excited if we act like we're going to chase him when he's crawling around. He loves playing with daddy and cuddling with momma. He loves it when we GROWL at him and he tries to do it back. Whenever we are trying to get his attention we just "ROAR!" and it works every time!

Her walker, the table top learning toy, the jumperoo, and whatever Connor has in his hands at the moment.
She usually just like the fruits at each meal, but will eat most veggies and she has liked the Chicken and Apples Combo. She still hates greens. She loved the cheese puff snacks from Gerber.
She is always jabbering, crawls everywhere and follows us when we leave the room. She loves playing with her brother and bath time. She loves standing up in her crib so she can see Connor in the other crib. And she loves playing "patty cake" with daddy.
She is still a good sleeper and still has her very predictable internal clock. She is now waking up at 6:00 am on the dot every morning, no matter what time she gets to sleep or what goes on during the night.
She crawls everywhere, pulls herself up on everything, and is now starting to let go and stand on her own. She walks a little bit with her walker but I have to be right there so it doesn't get out from under her. She feeds herself with finger foods.
"Dada", "Mama" (Just this week! Makes me so happy!), "Hey", and waves "Bye Bye"
She is so funny. She's independent, sassy, sweet, smart, has no fear, loves attention and shows off as soon as she sees people, no matter if she knows them or not. She always smiles at everyone when they look at her. She loves to play "peek a boo" and loves being scared.
