Good morning world! The Sprouts are so happy, curious, and adventurous these days!
The 9 month check up with our awesome pediatrician was fantastic because the Sprouts didn’t have to get any shots!! Alexander is currently weighing in at 18 lbs 1 oz and he’s 27.5″ long. He grew 2.5 pounds from his last check up! Alex is figuring out how crawling works and he is drawn to things he shouldn’t have! Alex is trying to figure out how to eat rice cereal and veggies. He likes trying to drink water out of a cup too, but mostly he just lets the water run down his chin-as if he doesn’t have enough drool! Alex is a great sleeper and he has learned to sleep through his sister’s cries (thank goodness). Alex gives out smiles freely and loves sleeping on his tummy. He’s a cuddly guy and he loves reading books with us!
Look who can hold his bottle all by himself and has a sharp little tooth poking out too!
Speaking of books, a boy’s use for Pride and Prejudice 🙂
Alivianna is the talker and shouter in the family! She was a total natural with the rice cereal and the green beans! She also loved the sweet potatoes. Livi was 26″ long and 16 lbs 5 oz at her appointment. She grew a little over 2 pounds since her last appointment. Livi has been watching Alex and she finally decided to get up on her hands and knees to see what the fuss was all about! Livi is the light, sensitive sleeper (like her dad). Livi is trying to cut a tooth, but no luck so far. She loves her pink cup and she lights up and grabs it when it’s time to drink water. What a girl!
Both Sprouts are doing great! Kirk and I took a little trip up to Lava Hot Springs last weekend so the Sprouts got to hang out with their grandparents in Logan. They sleep so great in my mom’s basement! So do I, actually. Work is super busy for both parents, but the Sprouts don’t have much cares in the world. And that’s awesome! The Sprouts have moved into the nursery and into their own cribs. It was a big change for everyone, but we’re all getting used to it now. Thank you for all the love and support!
Here are some very, very serious Sprouts for Valentine’s Day. I couldn’t get one single smile 🙁
