9 Months

The monkey's are going to be nine months old tomorrow. I can't believe it. They had their well baby visit today and then we scheduled their next appointment, which will be ONE YEAR. Holy crap.



Weight: 20 lbs 5 oz (48th percentile)

Height: 30 inches (94th percentile)

Milestones: Clapping, crawling, babbling, pulling up on things, coasting against furniture, and four new teeth.

Eating: Formula, baby foods (Earth's Best Organics are our favorite currently) and trying table foods! He likes lasagna, hamburger, chicken, pizza, french fries, pears, and cheese.



Weight: 17 lbs 6 ozs (21st percentile)

Height: 27.5 inches (52nd percentile)

Milestones: crawling, waving, babbling, clapping, and getting food into her mouth.

Eating: Formula, baby food, and table foods like cheese, pears, french fries, pizza, chicken, and snow (I know that's not a food, but she loves to eat it).

No shots today, thank Jesus. Ever got diagnosed as "big trouble." I already knew that. She is just a sassy little lady. Ocean needs his third round of antibiotics, yes I said third, because he is a little snot bucket. We are on asthma watch for him, especially since I have it and he is predisposed. Ever has only needed one round of antibiotics so far.

I can't tell you the relief that I feel when we leave the doctor and they get a clean bill of health. I know healthy babies are the norm, but with the joy of Google and blog reading, it sometimes seems like healthy babies are the exception. Well Baby visits ease my new mom fears so much and I leave so happy knowing my babies are healthy! I remember being worried about all the things that could happen every day of my pregnancy, so making it to each stage without those things happening makes me feel so lucky.


  1. Oh my gosh. My five and a half month old is like the same size as your nine month old. No wonder people look at me in shock when I tell them his age! Whoa!

    Can't believe it's almost a year already. :( I never knew it could go by this fast!

  2. Yay for healthy babies!!!

    And P.S. I meant to tell you before, if we were having twins we DEFINITELY would have found out the sex! ;-P And definitely will be if we get to have a second... ;-)

  3. Love the updates and pics! It annoys me how people STILL question me or comment on Rachel's lack of hair:(...I should be used to it by now. That said, is it okay if I say that I think Ever's lack of hair is adorable too?! I love babies with no hair, a little hair, tons of hair, straight hair, curly hair etc...doesn't matter BUT when there is not a lot of with our two girls though yours is a lot younger...look at their gorgeous EYES! That's what I see when I look at...not that we wouldn't see them anyway, but wow! Just really strikes me. I know I am rambling and hope this makes sense and is in no way offensive to you...such gorgeous little ones;)...Lori

  4. Wow. 9 months! Seriously, it seems like you just had them! Adorable pics. Thanks for posting them!

  5. Yep, they are PERFECT! And, I'm also in disbelief that they are 9 months old!!!!

    Oh, and I hope you avoid the asthma trap! It's no fun!

  6. I love bald babies! If my twins had hair when they were born, I was fully prepared to shave their heads.

    I can't beleive your kids are 9 months old already!! It is crazy, isn't it? Did they really call her "big trouble"... that is pretty hilarious, but ballsey, too! LOL

  7. They get cuter with every post!!!! I can't believe they are 9 months. I can't believe I was following your blog BEFORE you were even pregnant. Wow, it's been a long time together. Thanks for the laughs and the cries. :)


Thanks for stopping by! Sorry, no anonymous comments, if you can't put your name on it it's just no fun!
