A 9 Month Post

Hulse and Olivia,

You are 9 months and 1 day old today. You are both at a super fun age right now where everyday it's something new. Your Dad and I can't wait to see what you can do every day. You have both had a pretty good month despite the fact that you had the flu and were confined to the house for a week. This month you've tailgated, had some time with each parent alone while the other was out of town, and in a couple of days you'll dress up for your first Halloween. For your first Trick or Treat Hulse you'll be the Tin Man and Livi you'll be going as the Cowardly Lion.

Hulse you are a big boy at 21 pounds. You are growing right on track. It's just a matter of time before you're crawling. You are on your hands and knees everyday trying to figure out what the next step is. You also like to pull up on things especially when mom and dad hold your hands. You love to play and clap your hands when you get really excited. You are saying new sounds all of the time, but your favorite words are still Mama and Dada. You love baby food and have even started eating some table food like pickles, mashed potatoes, baked beans, baby yogurt, and even a little BBQ.

Olivia you are growing like a little weed coming in at 19 pounds. You are also interested in being mobile but take more of an army crawl approach. Scooting on your belly is a favorite activity. You also like to pull to a standing position and you love to walk in place once you get there. I think you would rather skip the crawling action and go straight for walking, but your poor momma isn't ready for that yet! You are going to be a late sleeper like your mom. If we let you on the weekends you'll usually sleep until at least 8:00. I've seen you eat your entire breakfast bottle with your eyes closed because you can't believe we would wake you up so early. You are also a very playful little girl until it's time for your nap and then your ready for your beauty rest. You also clap your hands when you get excited and your constantly have a smile on your face. You also really like your baby food and have tried table foods as well.
