9 Months

On March 19, the boys turned 9 months. We went to the doctor last week and here are the stats: Hayden - 19 pounds, 13 ounces, 29 inches long & Carson - 18 pounds even, 28 inches long. Everything seemed to be good. We have been so fortunate to not have much illness this winter. We've had some runny noses and Carson had a little upper respiratory infection, but other than that, we've been healthy. We are very thankful for family who come over to watch the boys when we are at work!!

I know I've said this before, but time sure is flying by! I am doing my best to enjoy every single moment with them - even in the middle of the night :). Speaking of the night, both boys are doing well sleeping. Hayden will wake up every now and then, but is fairly quick in getting back to sleep. I think his teething may have something to do with it. Carson is a good sleeper, and has slept through the night for as long as I can remember now - with the exception of a few nights and that was mainly because he was stopped up and couldn't breathe while laying down.

They are both doing the "army crawl" now. Carson started first, then Hayden followed. Carson can get around really quickly, Hayden is more laid back in that area :). They both stand up well when holding on to something like the couch, so I am sure it won't be too long until they start trying to walk. Hayden already seems to try to cruise a little.

They are eating their baby foods well. They are like their mommy and love to eat. We are trying to transition to things that are a little chunkier, but I think it will be a slow process for me. I am so scared they are going to choke and I won't know what to do. I am sure I am not the first person to worry about that :).

Here are a couple of pictures...

Various Pictures We've Taken

I have fallen behind in posting pictures of the boys. So, here are some various pics we've taken over the past month or so. Enjoy!

We got new sippy cups - and boy do we like them!
They have a straw, which the boys really seem to like.
We've only had water in the cups, but the boys don't seem to mind.
Maybe we'll try juice soon.

Playing on Mommy's keyboard is fun!
I've had this keyboard for as long as I can remember and
I am glad that the boys can enjoy playing on it like I used to.

Play Time!
The boys really like playing in the floor. We can make a pretty big mess!

Aren't We Cute In Our Hats?
The boys are fascinated with hats, among many other things,
so we thought we would get a picture of them with their hat on.

8 Months

The boys turned 8 months a couple of weeks ago. Everything is going good. Hayden now has 4 more teeth (all on top). 2 of Carson's has come in and the others are on their way. So far, we have dodged the flu bug. Carson had some upper respiratory stuff going on, but after some antibiotics and decongestant, he is doing fine. Hayden just had a runny nose.

The last time I weighed them, Hayden was 19 1/2 pounds and Carson was 17 1/2. We go to the doctor at the end of this month for our 9-month checkup. At that time, I'll have updated numbers.

Here is a picture I took of them right around the time they turned 8 months. They like sitting in their cribs and playing, and are even starting to seem to like to play together. Of course, only when the other is not trying to take something away :). We are going to have so much fun - and so many fights.

Rub A Dub Dub, Babies in the Tub...

The boys really seem to like bath time. We took these pictures a few weeks ago. As you can see, Carson likes to lean back and take it easy, whereas Hayden likes to play play play. They are so funny.
