Twin update...9 months!
Age: Happy 9 months babies! (adjusted - 7 months and a bit)
Height/Weight: We have to take them for their 9 month immunisations (oh great. Not.) so will see how much they weigh now and how much taller they have grown.
Developmental notes: It is amazing how fast they are developing with new skills all the time. They both sit unsupported quite well now, but do fall over ocassionally. Rebecca is crawling. Finn is almost there - he just has to figure out the motion, but so close. He shuffles about and then collapses on his tummy waving his arms and legs around like a stranded turtle. Both have two bottom teeth and two top teeth. Both can grasp pincer like. Rebecca likes to grab whatever toy Finn is playing with and he doesn't seem to mind. He just reaches for something else. Both are ticklish and giggle when tickled. Both like playing peek-a-boo.
Eating: Rebecca is more into baby-led weaning and reaches for food when she sees us eating. Finn is not interested as much in finger food and still is adverse to textures. If he eats something he doesn't like he gags. His latest is to blow rasberries while eating, spraying food everywhere. Not. That. Funny. When you are in the firing line. I made them Quinoa, banana and beans yesterday and they really liked it until the last mouthful when Finn started gagging lol!
Sleep: They go to sleep well after their bottle usually around 7pm and sleep through until about 5am when they first wake, chat and moan and sometimes go back to sleep again. Sometimes one or the other or both wake up after their first sleep cycle at about 8pm or so, and then we have to go re-settle them. In the morning, we try to only go in at 6am to turn them over, give Becky her dummy and their mousies until 6h15-6h30 when we change them and bring them through to our bed for their morning bottle.
Favourite Things: Bathtime. Even if they are niggly and tired, they perk right up during bathtime and love splashing and shrieking in the water.
Dislikes: Finn really seems to dislike wierd textures and gags. Rebecca doesn't like to be cuddled or squeezed tight. Finn really doesn't like fish, but we will keep trying to give it to him. They both really do not like scrambled eggs!
Looking forward to: Everything!
Mommy musings: I. Love. My. Babies. I cannot believe they are almost one year old...only three months to go. We are so in awe of these beautiful little characters that have such a special place in our lives already.
