9 months!

It's crazy what a difference about a week makes. My boys have gone from taking a few steps and falling over to walking from a room into another room, bending over to pick something up then standing back up and continue walking and then changing directions before losing their balance. We headed back over to grandma's house tonight and she was AMAZED at the progress they've made since she saw them last week.

We had our 9 month appt. the other day. Both boys are VERY healty!!! Jake weighs 21lbs and Jonah is at 19lbs. They are both the same height now and Jake's head is just a hair (get it) bigger than Jonah's. We're getting over the sniffles again this week. I hate when they get sick...b/c we all get sick...and I really hate it when my babies feel like the poo!!!

This video was taken right after Thanksgiving.

And these were taken last night.

Our Thanksgiving was great! The boys had fun playing in grandma's kitchen, or should I say destroying it! Unfortunately they slept through the main dinner but we discovered they like cranberrys and mashed potatoes. We have MUCH to be thankful for. I still can't believe we have TWO beautiful, healthy baby boys. They are the highlight of my every moment. I can't wait to see what they'll do next. I still can't believe it sometimes. Even tonight my mother said, "Shannon, your CHILDREN are walking! YOUR did that happen that you have kids?!" I said, "I know...I have to remind myself sometimes too that this happened and there's two at the same time...and it's the most amazing thing I could have ever happened to me!" I thank God for these babies and pray everyday for their continued health and progress. Even our doctor said they're way ahead of the curve as far as physical accomplishments. He said that even if they weren't twins it would be big but especially as a multiple. My kids are awesome!

I can't believe they are walking already, that's amazing! I could tell it wouldn't be long when we saw you the other day. I'm glad the boys are doing so well. They are bigger than mine now too! My Jake is only 18lbs12oz and Luke is 19lbs6oz and they are a month older than yours :).
Way to go Jake and Jonah! We can't wait to see you again soon!
