Nine Months

It’s official, the girls have been on the outside longer than the inside!

There were quite a few firsts this month.  They had their first plane trip (to Miami).  They saw the ocean, went to the beach and to the pool for the first time.  And they both started crawling!

They have started being very aware of each other and are even starting to play.  They “race” to the hallway corner and sit on either side, peeking around and giggling at each other.  They also crawl all over each other, which turns into a baby wrestling match or one sitting on her sister as she cries.

Blake Evangeline

Blakey girl loved the pool immediately.

She started crawling while we were in Miami.  She plops her hands down when she crawls and it makes the cutest noise!  When she wants to get somewhere fast you’ll hear her making high pitched, almost heavy breathing noises as she makes a beeline for you.DSC01711

She has great rhythm and will start bopping around and dancing whenever she hears music.  This includes actual songs, music from their toys or someone singing or whistling.  DSC01712

She is a fidgety mover and will constantly whip her head around to look at everything in the room while being held.  But when she’s playing on her own, she will sit and focus on one toy.DSC01713

She loves her pacifier and also has a “Honey Bunny” (bunny blanket).  She does such a good job keeping track of both when she is going to sleep or cuddling.DSC01716

Leila Grace

Leila took some time to warm up to the pool and played and napped on the beach.  The ocean was very scary to her and made her “koala” onto us whenever we took her near it (arms and legs around us as tight as possible with her head tucked in).  She must like this position, because she’s started doing it all the time, especially when she’s super tired.

Her hair must be growing, because she has started having bed head when she wakes up.  It makes me so happy.DSC01697

Leila gets SUPER upset and wails when her bottle or bowl of food is gone.  She quickly gets over it, but you have to brace yourself.DSC01689

She really found her voice this month.  Her “talking” is much more lyrical than typical baby babbling and is always accompanied with funny facial expressions.  She also started yelling (not upset crying) on the plane to Miami.  Luckily we had kind people surrounding us!DSC01696

Lastly, she crinkles her nose when she smiles.DSC01694

The girls are sweeter and showing more personality every day.  I can’t believe we’re already at the nine month mark.
