9 Months and Merry Christmas

We are 9 Months old and its gettin CRAZY around here!!!  
Silas can now crawl ALL over the house and stops to pull up to a standing position on most things.  He is getting better at falling but we have had a few doosies :( You still love your Passy... 
You also absolutely know that your mama can't stand to hear you cry for very long and so you cry for you and Eli.  I wonder sometimes what Eli is thinking wide awake letting you scream knowing, she will come, so you don't waste the energy :)
Silas you will eat basically anything I put in front of you.  So glad you both are great eaters.
Elijah you are still most happy pulling along with the Army crawl which you do pretty quick.  You pull up to stand occasionally but at this point you are content to watch your brother do the hard work.  You are my cautious one when it come to other people.  But you both have done such a wonderful job in the church nursery or when friends and family are around.  Eli you are my thumb sucker and it is the cutest darn thing!!!  You both had your 9 month well check up this week.  

Elijah is 15 lbs 12.8 oz 
Silas 15 lbs 3.4 oz
Both of you are 26 3/4 in. tall
 and the only % above 2% is your Head Circ. at 17.5" (34%) I think this means you have lots of brains!!!
There isn't a chart for multiples but 
you both are growing at a fabulous rate for twin boys.
 We love you both so much.        

My Absolute favorite thing to put out during Christmas is our beautiful Nativity.  I was given this as several gifts over the years from friends and family.  I am so thankful for it!

Isaiah 9:6

For to us a child is born,   to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.  And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Also I was super excited about their stockings!!! So fun to go from 2 to 4.

What are some of your Christmas traditions?  

I am new at this but excited to get to start some special things my boys will remember forever.  
I ordered Si and Eli each a Christmas book about Jesus.  I think this will definitely be a tradition.  I grew up always having a big basket of Christmas books under the Christmas tree and always loved it.  I am going to write in their books and then someday, Lord willing, I will be able to give their kids the books.  A friend of mine wraps their books every year and then they open them each year as an Advent treat or just when they want to read a Christmas story before bed.

Hope you are having a fabulous Christmas season and that you know 
Christ's Everlasting Love.

  1. Love the book idea! Always looking for fun traditions/ advent ideas. They are getting so big. Can't wait to meet them!! Love that your mantle is a little fuller. Can't wait to add a stocking or two to ours as well:).
