Until this past Monday, Maci and Dane slept in there bouncy seats for there naps, in seperate rooms. Lately they have been maneuverning there way out of them and when I go check on them there's no baby in the bouncy. Maci has done it twice in the past couple of weeks and Dane did it last weekend! So I figured it's time to put them in there cribs for naptime. I was absolutely dreading it! There Monday morning nap came too quick which usually I'm thrilled to put them down for naps. So I grabbed Dane put him in his crib then Maci into her crib. They weren't going for it right away:( I let them cry it out for 10 or so minutes, went and checked on them and they were both perched up in there cribs. I went and laid them both back down, put there paci's in there mouth and prayed they would go to sleep. It was a miracle, not a peep for 2 hours! The next nap didn't go as well but not too bad. Tuesday was good not great. Today was a complete disaster! There morning nap consisted of them basically playing for two hours in there crib and talking and laughing at eachother! Rascals! My plan tomorrow is to put a playpin in my room for Maci to nap and Dane in his crib, otherwise they will just stay up and chat and then be moody the rest of the day:( Wish me luck! Here are some cute pics of my 2 rascals lately:

9 month check-up

I can't believe my little munchkins are 9 months old!!! They have changed so much since my last post! They both started crawling a few weeks ago, so they are into everything now! They love following each other around and getting into trouble, lol:) It's so fun now that they actually play and interact with each other! They are already best friends although they do tick each other off sometimes too:) They love crawling all over each other and poking and pulling at each other!
9 month stats:
17 pounds (15%)
26 inched (5%)
his head is in the 30th percentile

14 lbs 12 oz (not on charts)
24 inches (not on charts)
her head is also in the 30th percentile

Dane is a wild man, a lot of it has to do with his crazy father, lol:) He loves to wrestler with his Daddy! He is full of energy and crawls like a maniac! He has this new bear crawl that he does on his hands and feet with his butt in the air, it's the funniest thing ever:) Dane has 2 bottom teeth now. He loves to be held and really wants to be held right now, lol. He is pulling up on everything now and has lots of falls throughout the day! He is such a little explorer and if I forget to close any door to a bedroom or bathroom he heads straight to it. He has figured out how to open and close our tv console drawers and will sit there and just open and close open and close over and over, lol. He also loves remotes and our Iphones, as soon as he sees an opening to possibly get our phones he is all over it! One of his favorite things are food and treats, he's gonna be a big boy! He is such a sweet boy and makes me laugh everyday!

Maci loves studying everything out especially faces:) It took her a few more days to figure out how to crawl, she just wanted to do it the right way unlike her maniac brother who just wanted to get moving however weird way he figured out:) She loves her brother but he does love to bug her, she has learned how to bug him back, lol:) She has also learned how to get out of her bouncy seat which they take naps during the day in, rascall!! She loves to play but not too ruff:) She's obsessed with getting into the diapers and making a mess of them, lol:) She loves to babble, blow bubbles and squeal as loud as possible, especially at church! She has also figured out how to stand in her crib but doesn't quite know how to get herself down, so she'll cry to let us know she needs help:) Maci is such a sweetheart and I just want to cuddle and kiss her all day!
