10 Months

I wouldn't chose to remember my kids ninth month as the fussiest month ever but I have to be honest about it. Between teething and wanting to do new tricks (without success) I have a couple of frustrated infants on my hands. But we've had a few wonderful nights together when they've been all laughter and shrieks of joy.


Penny: You got your first two teeth this month. Whenever you see Mommy, Esq. she is required to immediately pick you up or you'll let her know your displeasure. We love your happy shrieks and think you've started saying "da". You are now drinking 16-20 ounces a day in your bottle but no solid food other than pancakes, crackers, breakfast bars and puffs will touch your lips. You like to peer at us from behind a raised bottle with a huge grin and are learning how to clap when Mommy, Esq. sings "When You're Happy and You Know It". We have spent lots of time at doctors appointments but you have held up very well and we are proud of you.



Ned: My sweet, Neddy Bear. I'm afraid your "Ned head" hair is almost gone. I think you are getting your 5th tooth this week! You still like to snuggle your momma but also want to crawl and standup. If only you could figure those skills out without having to work for it! You like to stand for lots of playtime at your music table. Your favorite food is whatever the newest thing is we've put on your tray.


Next month will be your first trip to Maine and I think you'll be crawling by the time you turn 11 months. Your parents promise to try to keep being patient with you both if you promise to keep giving us some of those glorious grins.

So cute! I love how happy they are. It speaks volumes about the love they get from you and Aaron.

They are so cute. I hope things go well today with Penny. See, it sounds like Ned is almost crawling and the last pic or 2nd to last makes it look like Penny is going to take off - no worries about that at least. Maine - I have been wanting to get there, I hope you share pictures.

So cute! Such little beauties. I love how Penny's waving, and they're BOTH smiling happily in the chair pick. That's the holy grail of twin pics. Have fun in Maine! It's my home state :)

You are so lucky your little ones smile for the camera. My DS2 always looks perplexed! Cute! I hope Penny's tests go well.

This actually makes me feel a little better. Between teething, new found separation anxiety, frustrations with crawling, hating every diaper change, I feel like this is the fussiest month we've had in a long time. Sigh. The fun parts are definitely getting bigger and more exuberant, but it is exhausting.
