It's amazing how busy these 4 little legs keep me...
Yes, wrestling! They are starting to play together so much.
-They play peek a boo behind our sliding glass door curtains all the time.
-They love spending time together in the bathroom doing various things. Playing with the toilet paper, in the water (YUCK), flushing, and flushing, and flushing the toilet. O and bathing. Well, Dax loves bathing with Barrett. Barrett hates bathing with Dax. I would too if I was sitting with Dax next to me creating title waves he splashes so much!
-Barrett wrestles with Dax, Dax doesn't wrestle back. He cries back, but he doesn't wrestle back! I'm sure they will trade back and forth for the next...18 years.
-They love to chase balls. Everywhere. As fast as they can.
-Barrett is my sneaky baby. He just figured out how to climb the stairs. He will sneak over to the bottom of them, realized the gate was ACCIDENTALLY not put up, and climb as fast as he can up them. One problem...he gets about 4 stairs up and does this silly, evil "Yes I got away with it!" laugh. I hear it and go running to save him! He is getting pretty good now though, so maybe I won't have to save him for too much longer.
-Dax is a horrible teether. Screams, cries, makes mommy hold him all day. O, and he wants to be a dentist. He's always reaching in my mouth. Always.
-Teething doesn't phase Barrett. Not in the least.
-Barrett loves mommy's homemade mac and cheese. They are both just started to eat table food. They have been great eaters so far so I'm a little worried about starting more table food.
-I get a lot of attention when I go out. A LOT. Everyone, "ooo twins! One brown eye one blue eye?! AHHH! OOOO!" Unless they are snotty nosed, in their pj's, and both crying. Then no one tells me how cute they are!
-Books! Books! They love books. Dax loves them a little bit more right now, but it changes week to week. Our favorites are the Little People "Let's go to the zoo", I would honestly go crazy without this book! Also "The big hungry bear" and the "Little Quack" series. All gifts! My sister is an expert book provider:) She wants smart nephews or something!
-They are both about to walk. Barrett took 2 steps the other day, Dax has taken 1. They are only 9 months! ahhh!
She still couldn't fix their naps, though:) Usually 1 of the boys only sleeps for around 45 minutes, then plays until he wakes his brother, then they both play, etc. etc. etc.! But the nighttime sleep makes up for it.
So they sleep until 7 ish. Then they eat a bottle and some breakfast (oatmeal and yogurt or fruit). Then we play. and cry. and bonk our heads. and steal one another's toys. and hang on mommy's legs.
Then we take a nap, around 930. About 11 they eat another bottle, then I run errands. At 130 they eat lunch, some icky mushed up vegetable and some fruit. Then it's time for a nap! They pretty much play in their cribs for 15-30 minutes until they fall asleep...and wake up around 330 for another bottle. Yep they eat a lot! Then we play some more. THEN DADDY GETS HOME! Yahoo! I have lots of good parts of my day...but this is the best for mommy! By this time I'm a little worn out, and so happy to have my happy husband by my side to wrestle these crazies with me!
Then another bottle and off to bed. And a little relaxation for us. That's our day! It's so fun, and so crazy, and stressful sometimes, and rewarding. Although sometimes it feels like I don't do much day in and day out, then I see these smiling faces. I guess that's my job, just to keep them smiling, right? (Look at those chubby hands!!!)
