10 months and lots of new skills

 The boys turned 10 months old on the 8th. They are both 19 1/2 lbs. Micah is 28in and Mason is 29 1/2 in. I had noticed he seemed to be sitting taller in the high chair recently. His pants fit fine though so it must be core height. They are both starting to jabber alot more in the last week. They both make Ba, Da, sounds, sometimes Ma, and Mason has started Yaya. No real words yet though. My mom asked Micah where Mama was the other day and he turned around to me reached his had out and smiled. I was totally shocked that he knew. It made Mommy's day.

Micah is still rocking back and forth on hands and knees. He will every once in while pick up a hand and start to move it forward but he figured out the army crawl so he just takes of that way. He does push his core totally off the ground balancing on fingers and toes. It is so funny. He has also started doing the pincher finger grab when picking up cheerios. I think he is more skilled in fine motor where Mason is large motor.

Mason started hands and knees crawling a few weeks ago. He will do hands and knees for a minute and then also sets off army crawling to get to his desired location. He is much faster at it still. He has also mastered pulling up. It started by climbing up either me or toys onto his knees and slowly he figured out how to pull onto his feet after many falls. He stands at the couch many times a day. He hasn't figured out how to step along it yet though. This usually lands him back on his rear end or a full body plop. He has also figured out how to go from belly/hands & knees to sitting up on his own. This is very nice. His newest challenge though is standing up in the crib and getting stuck. Once I lowered the crib I think he decided it is just to far of a drop to let go. It is making for some interesting nap times.
Here are some pics from the last few weeks.

Sharing? Maybe
No personal space needed as a twin.
Proud boy standing.
His new look. His tongue is always out.
Loving the new sippies all by themselves. Thanks Nana!

Mason- It took forever to get him to sit still. Forget a smile.

Getting harder and harder to keep them both sitting long enough to snap a pic. Not to bad.
