9 months old (plus some change)

Wow, hard to believe it’s been 9 months. 9 months since they were born. Since the NICU. Since they were taking less than a CC of food at a time, and since feeding tubes. Since they would fit inside my shirt, since they wore preemie clothes (or none at all), since the isolettes.

Now? We sit up on our own (Jacen and Val). We crawl (Jaina). We sit on our ands and knees and rock or try to dive for toys. We crawl out the front door (Jaina). We clap to “If you’re happy and you know it” (Valerie), we laugh and cry and throw tantrums (all of the above). We sit in our high chairs and eat some solid food. We play with toys. We try to mimic our brother (for better and worse).

I’ll get some new pictures up soon, but for now? I’ve gotta chase a little girl down the hallway before she goes into her brothers room and terrorizes something.
