Sarah and Coulson are nine months old. They are starting to sleep through the night (most nights) now and are getting more adventurous and playful. I absolutely LOVE this new stage we are entering!
Sarah is such a doll! She squeals and leaps for joy in our arms when we get her in the morning. She loves having kissing wars with Mommy and talks up a storm. Her favorite words right now are "Mama" and "Mom." She is teaching Coulson how to say Mommy's names, too. She is quick to smile at Coulson and tries to get him to laugh, especially when they are eating their solid food. She does this by sticking out her tongue and talking with food in her mouth. Sarah was leading Coulson in a conversation today and apparently it was exclusive to the twins. When I tried to join in with the video camera, the conversation died. Too funny! Sarah is rolling all around the living room and starting to explore the kitchen. She enjoys playing in the jump-a-roo if Coulson is otherwise occupied (he likes to climb on the jump-a-roo when Sarah is trying to bounce, thus weighing her down). Sarah has a teddy bear she cuddles with at night and I can tell they are going to be great friends.
Coulson is a mover! He is crawling everywhere and has a quest to climb everything in sight. Even at night, he has a hard time sleeping because he wants to climb the crib one more time! He also is able to pull himself up in a sitting position from his crawl. He is so proud of himself. He climbs on EVERYTHING, including his sister. Coulson also has a fun sense of humor. He thinks everything is a joke. He gets this twinkle in his eye and smiles all the time like he has some inside joke that's making him chuckle inwardly. He loves to twist on the changing table just enough to look at Sarah and laugh. Everything is funny to Coulson: burps, passing gas, Mommy crying (which doesn't happen very often), and when Daddy, Mommy, or Sarah come into the room. He is such a happy, smiley boy!
We just love our little ones and look forward to the next few months of their infancy. It's hard to believe they will be a year old in three months!
