Nine Months...Nine Milestones

Anna Claire and Mallory are nine months old today, and it's getting difficult to have them sit still for pictures...

See what I mean. Sorry this picture is out of focus, but Mallory would not stay still; I finally gave up trying.

Here are nine recent "milestones" the girls have reached in honor of becoming nine months old:

  1. Mallory's hair is getting so long it has started to curl at the nape of her neck and behind her ears...so cute.
  2. Both Anna Claire and Mallory can feed themselves fruit puffs.
  3. Anna Claire has now cut her second tooth. That's two teeth for each girlio.

  4. Both girls can make in onto their hands and knees, but Mallory has been the first one to actually crawl, though she only takes one or two crawls forward at a time. Anna Claire is sooo close.

  5. They reach thier arms up high for us now when we go to pick them up. I love that.

  6. If Anna Claire and Mallory are sitting close enough to us, they can "crawl" into our laps.

  7. Mallory can go from laying flat on her tummy to sitting up then to her knees if she has something to pull up on. They are both working hard on standing.

  8. Both Anna Claire and Mallory can clap their hands together. YAY!!!
  9. Anna Claire can hold her 1/2-full bottle and finish feeding herself.

I could go on and on, but I'll stop at nine. Our nine month well-baby visit is next Friday. I can't wait to see how much they weigh.

Mallory held her full bottle today with both hands.
