On Saturday, the twins went for their 9 month well-baby check-up. No shots this time, so that was nice. Keira was weighed first and came in at 19 lbs, 12.6 oz. And then there was my little peanut, Colin, at 15 lbs, 9 oz. Keira is over 4 pounds heavier than her brother! And only 6 1/2 pounds lighter than her OLDER brother. (I became painfully aware of their weights when I carried both Connor AND Keira up the stairs the other night. 40 pounds is a lot to carry up a flight of stairs!) We are also on the hunt for 3 new carseats for the van. Keira will be outgrowing her infant carrier soon (plus it's almost back-breaking to carry her around in it now anyway). Connor's current carseat will be moved to my car to replace the infant carrier, and all 3 kids will have nice Britax seats in the van.
Last week, work sent me to Philadelphia for 5 days. As much as I dreaded leaving the kids, the trip went pretty well. I got to see a lot of the city - the historical stuff and even a ghost tour…

They crawl!!!

I kept waiting for this day. Oh how great it will be when the twins can finally crawl.

Um, yeah. I was so excited I didn't think about the fact that there are TWO of them crawling in very DIFFERENT directions. Last night, Colin crawled over to the staircase and if Keith hadn't stopped him, he would have tried crawling up the first stair. At the same time, Keira had somehow gotten herself over to Connor's toys and was eating a car. By the time you bring one back to the center of the room and stand back up, he or she is already on the way into more mischief. And the other twin is on the other side of the room doing something equally as naughty.

I always said I would never get one of those superyards. But I never thought I would have twins either. :P Perhaps a trip to BRU is in order this weekend.
