9 months in numbers

The girls had their 9 month check-up on Friday. Everyone is healthy and growing well, even though they are still tiny for a 9 month old. We've got some tall and skinny little girls.

Maya- 14 pounds, 1 ounce; 26 inches
Fiona- 14 pounds, 10 ounces; 26.5 inches
Hannah- 16 pounds; 27 inches

Maya is most definitely crawling now. She has two favorite destinations in her travels- the dog bed and underneath any of the saucers. Frequently we find her in the dog bed trying to chew on computer cables, which is a charming habit to develop.

Fiona and Hannah are getting up on all fours now, but no crawling yet. They are quite adept at rolling across the room, though.

This week they're trying chicken for the first time. I made them chicken last night- can't say I've ever made pureed meat before, but it wasn't too hard. I only ended up with a small amount of chicken juice in my hair by the time I was done.

9 months old!

Happy 9 months old girls! We can't believe that in 3 short months, you'll all be (gasp) a whole year old.

Hannah and her silly grin.
Maya's new expression of disdain.
Fiona multitasking, swinging in her beloved swing and licking a sippy cup.

Pictures and more to come soon. The much anticipated 9 month check-up is on Friday- it's been 3 long months since we last had the girls weighed, so it's a big deal.

Happy 3/4 birthday Maya, Hannah, and Fiona!
