We also ventured out to get our 9 month photos taken...they went "ok", not as many smiles as the 6 month photos. OK, truth be told...Oliver was all smiles, Vivian was a little hesitant to be out of my or my mom's arms. Needless to say...I was sweating, out of breath from dancing around and making funny faces and my wallet was a little lighter by the time the photo session was over (smiles or not!).
The babies are eating more and more "big people food" every day! Blueberries, pears, bananas, green beans, black beans, pasta (not a favorite yet), yogurt (really enjoying these days!), cheese slices, crackers, cheerios..our list of favorites keeps growing!
The babies are definitely trying to move. Oliver can get to his hands and knees and "rock" back and forth, Vivian is starting to "army crawl" one or two "crawls" forward, then she'll roll to her back, roll to tummy and toss herself forward and repeat the process a few times. Their biggest motivators are...my iPhone, the computer, Vivian loves paper of any sort, Oliver wants any toy Vivian has in her hands (although Vivian is starting to protest when he takes her toys).
