9 month old movers!!!

WOW! 9 months have FLOWN by! I think about this time last year with amazement. This exact time last year, I was going into the hospital for my over 2 and 1/2 month stay in the hospital and in the bed (I was only home during that time for 3 weeks). I can't believe that on this very day last year, as I type this, my mom was on her way to Lexington to help me, and little did she know that she would be here for 3 months helping me while on bed rest (keeping me company in the hospital, bathing me, feeding me, getting Jack and Lucy's nursery ready, and keeping my home together while Cal worked), and then proceeding to stay with us another month after Jack and Lucy were born to help us with them. What an act of love and service...I only hope to be half of the wonderful mother that she is! She has always given 100% and I am so thankful to God for such a wonderful role-model as a mother.
Our little angels are 9 MONTHS OLD!!! This is so hard to believe! They are movers and shakers now too! Man, they are all over the place! Now, for the monthly updates...
Jack:
- You are 19 lbs and 2 ounces. You are 29 3/4 inches...ALMOST 30 inches...just one notch above 30~ You are 50th percentile in weight and 98th percentile in height! ha! You are one tall little fella!
- You are still taking 4 bottles a day. You are down to 7 oz. You are getting breast milk and formula.
- You are still doing a TON better with your eating. You are starting to open your mouth and accept some pureed foods, but you are much more into bland and crunchy! ha
- You are taking 2 naps a day now...you finally knocked out that afternoon catnap, with the adjustment of the daytime nap schedule. You sleep from 8p-8a at night and nap from 10:30-12:30 and then again from 3:00-5:00.
- You have breakfast at 8:00 when you wake up after you take your prevacid, lunch at 12:30 and dinner at 5:00. You have one more bottle before bed at 8:00!
- You started crawling on July 23...just 2 days before you turned 9 months old!
- You have started waving at everything and everybody! When we walk in to get you out of bed, you are frantically waving and smiling that big toothy smile!
- You are VERY into crawling. You are going everywhere!
- We made you a playroom out of our dining room the week that you turned 9 months old. It is WONDERFUL! You can crawl all over that room, and I know that there is NOTHING in there that will hurt you...well, I hope not at least! ha
- You went swimming in the big pool for the first time this month! You LOVED floating around in your float!
- You LOVE to splash in water, you will even lean over and put your whole face in the water..you are a very curious little person...it will freak you out a bit, but then you will lean down and do it again! ha
- You like to chew on your sippy cup, but you haven't quite gotten to where you will drink out of it on your own.
- You got you new "big boy" car seat this month. You were to tall to stay in your infant carrier seat. I cried the whole time the car seats were going up to the attic...I am such a sap!
- You are still obsessed with Ava, and will crawl over to wherever she is! You love to bounce in your "johnny jumper" ..you will swing in the thing and literally twist it and twist it and then lift your feet so it will spin as fast as possible and you will just die laughing the whole time...it is hilarious!
- You are truly coming more and more alive and turning into a "little boy". It is such a fantastic journey watching you grow!

- You LOVE to splash in water, you were very cautious at first. When we started walking into the pool, you hung onto me with a death grip...you do not like to take too many risks! ha
