Things we like to do..

We have learned, Kolton has, to stand up. We think it is great fun to do so in our crib, when we are supposed to be sleeping. I went in the other day and this is what I found. It was his first time pulling up in his crib.

However, we don't like to do this too much. Karter likes to rise and shine early. I have been trying to get them to stay up a little later in hopes that they will finally decided that it's not so cool to get up at 5:00 and 6:oo, we would really like 7:00 or 7:30.

They are everywhere now. I have to use baby gates everywhere and when they are not up, off they go. Kolton can crawl fast and tries to pull up on everything. They don't yet get the whole gravity thing. Kater is still army man crawling but he can move fast too. Last week they developed a deep love for their Johnny Jump Up. The thing has been in the house for several months and up until last week they really didn't even pay attention to it, well except for the tags on it they love to play with tags, now they practically fight over it. Their two favorite toys are the Jump Up and a toy car that was given to us. They zoom all over the kitchen in that thing.

Busy Busy Busy....

The boys had their 9 month checkup, they're both doing very well. They've also passed their hearing tests with no problems.

Brandy has been too busy with her sisters wedding to post so I'm gonna do it.
The little guys have been very very busy lately. Kolton is crawling now and pulling himself up on whatever he can get a grip on. Karter is doing the army-man crawl at high speed. It's been a full time job keeping up with them.. As you can see by these pix...

Brandy Here: On the 17th they boys turned 9 months old. Kolton was 19.2lbs, 28in long and is head was 45.2. The doctor said he looks great and they are catching up nicely. Kolton as Jimmy stated can now crawl and pull himself up on things. He's still new at the pulling up thing and sometimes gets stuck on his knees with nothing to really support his pull up on. He also is getting a tooth on the top, however I don't believe it a font tooth it appears to be the one next to it. Weird huh? Kolton is incredibly hard to dress now, he rolls all over the place and pinches you if you make him stay still.

Karter was 18.9 lbs, 27 3/4 in long and head was 43.7. He is doing good also except he has contact dermatitis and can't be bathed in soap we have to use a skin cleaner and we got some cream to put on it from the doctor. Karter is still doing the army man crawl, but he is fast. Today he acted like he was going to try to pull up on something and he even walked to me, assisted of course, but he knew where he was going. He now has two bottom teeth.

Both boys are all over the place and in different directions as well. I had taken some really good pictures of them outside the other day but unfortunately they were deleted off of the camera before they were loaded to the computer. I hate that this happened, they were so good, but what are you gonna do? My mom was there also and had her camera she got some of the same shots as me so I'm going to try to get some of them from her. My sister's wedding is over now, it was very nice. The boys did very good. Now I will have a little more time to post, I hope.

We have been busy.

It has been a while since I have gotten to post anything. I've been and the boys have been very busy. They have begun to crawl or creep. Karter does the army man crawl, he gets on his belly and moves his arms and legs with out getting on his knees. Kolton just today began to really crawl and he is very fast. He had been getting up on his knees doing one or two actual crawls and then he would land on his stomach and his rear would almost go over his head. Karter is pretty much weaning himself off of the bottle. He takes only one or two a day and want food the rest of the time. Kolton still loves his bottle and drinks every bit of it.

Since RSV season is over. Can I just stop right here and say YAY!!!!! I'm so glad to be able to get out and about. This Saturday is my sisters wedding shower and it will be the first time that they have been around all the family and their kids. Another thing keeping us busy is that my Mom is in town and we have been spending time with her and trying to get the last things we need to get done for my sister's shower and then her wedding next weekend.
