We're 9 Months Old!


My boys just keep growing up! They are now 9 months old and continue to bless our family with their smiles and laughs. They have developed these little personalities that couldn't be more night and day from each other. Grayson is our curious explorer. He wants to be anywhere and everywhere that he's not supposed to be. Weston is definitely more chill. He likes to sit back and take in the world around him.

Grayson and Weston eat 4 bottles a day and 2 meals. They have tried a lot of different fruits and veggies, pasta and meat. They have also tried some mom unapproved (but toddler approved!) foods like Goldfish and potato chips. Although I LOVE that they share, we're still working with the A-Team on what the boys can and can't eat.

Weston and Grayson sleep from about 7:15 - 7:00ish each night. They take 2 great naps a day and sometimes take a little catnap around 5 which is perfect for me to get dinner started. They wear 9-12 month stuff - big boys! Most of their 9 month onesies are getting a little snug to snap. I'm pretty sure that they will catch up to Addison soon!

Lately, it seems like the boys only want to play with whatever the other one is playing with. As long as it doesn't end in tears, it's pretty cute. They are more aware of each other and interact a little more. Mostly that involves Grayson crawling on Weston or Weston laughing at Grayson.


Grayson - the devilish little smile in the picture above captures your personality perfectly. You are a lightening fast crawler, a rockstar cruiser and most recently, a climber. You like to get into everything you shouldn't which keeps us on our toes. I think you desperately want to run around with your big brother and sister - soon my little man!


You have 6 teeth still but are working on number 7. This round of teething has been pretty rough on you and has given me a lot of snuggle time. I hate that I can't just snap my fingers and have those teeth already be in!


You like to babble and seem pretty focused on da-da. Every once in a while you throw in a ma-ma to keep me happy. You like to yell and scream to, just to see how loud you can be. I love your look of pure joy when you are super loud! Grayson, we love your spirit and the joy you bring to our family!


Weston, you radiate happiness. I'm not saying that you don't have your times of tears but for the most part, you have a smile on your face! Just within the past week or so, you've started army crawling. Rolling is still your quickest method of getting around but we're working on that crawl. 


This is the face that I see every morning and I love it! You also have 6 teeth and I'm not sure if there are more coming in yet. You are drooling up a storm so I hope so!


You are a huge babbler and say ma-ma, da-da and ba-ba. And then you say a lot that I have no clue what you are even trying to say. You are the chatty one! Weston, you have captured my heart with that sweet smile and I'm blessed to see it so often!

Grayson and Weston, you add so much love and fun to our family. It's so fun to watch you explore and learn new things every day. We love you!
