Sydney - today is your half birthday!
You are SIX months old!!!
You weigh 15lbs 9oz
You are inches tall
You wear a size 2 diaper and just outgrowing her 3-6 month clothes and moving in to 6-9 month clothes.
You take 2-3 naps a day. Some days you still take a cat nap between your 7 and 10AM bottle. Usually that's on the way to preschool or the gym. You take a nap around 11:30, sometimes it's in the car and in your crib when we are home. You take a great 2 hour nap in your crib every afternoon.
You are so sweet and happy. You do scream and fuse a lot between 5 -7PM but you seem to be getting better with that. You love to be held all the time but you will let us put you down to play some and you love to jump in your jumperoo.
You do great in the nursery at the gym and church. They have gotten to know you pretty well at the gym and you seem happy when I leave. You have only been in the church nursery about a month but you usually eat and take a nap. So thankful for great people that love on you.
We started food last week. You have had applesauce, bananas and carrots. You are still figuring out the spoon and swallowing but slowly you are getting there. I have to manipulate you a little and feed you your bottle in-between bits. You favorite seems to be carrots.
You think your two big brothers are pretty special. They love to come over and see you and try to make you smile and laugh. It's the cutest and sweetest thing to watch. They tell us all the time how much they love having a little sister. Let's hope they always feel that way!
You are rolling more every day. You don't love being on your belly so you roll pretty quickly to your back. You have started sitting up unassisted. I put you down on the floor and put the hoppy around you and you will sit for a good 10-15 min.
You seem to be pretty happy being on the go. Third child syndrome, haha! You LOVE riding in the stroller and never fuss when we go on walks. You love to go shopping and smile and giggle when I make faces at you in the store. You are pretty easy to take out and about.
(Just a little outtake from our little session! This girl! She is going to be a strong headed little one!)
We are so crazy about you and love you so much we can hardly stand it. You have captured our hearts and we cannot imagine life without you. Ryan told me the other day "I really like baby Sydney, I think we should keep her"! Bless!!! You are so sweet and the prettiest baby girl I've ever laid my eyes on.
