Nine Months

Sydney - You are NINE months old!!!!  
How did that happen so fast??? 

You had your 9 month check up right before Christmas!
You are lbs, and tall 
You wear 6-9 month clothes and size 2 diapers during the day and size 3 at night.  

You are a GREAT eater!  Woohoo!  You eat every table food we put in front of you!  You have had eggs, rice, tomatoes, strawberries, blueberries, apples, squash, green beans, peas, carrots, and bananas!  You still love baby food but eating more table food.  Hope that your good eating habits continue. 

You have just two bottom teeth.  I'm sure you will have some top teeth soon!

You take two good naps a day.  You start out your morning nap in the car on the way home from the gym (during the week) and transfer to your bed once we get home.  You take a good long nap in the afternoons usually from 2:00-5:00.  You are ready to go to bed by 6:30.  

You sleep great through the night and mostly sleep til I get up at 7:30 or sleep until about 8/8:30 on the weekends!  

You are such a sweet baby.  You sit up really well and love to watch your silly brothers play.  You love when they play with you and talk to you!  You smile from ear to ear.  It's really the sweetest thing.  You are not crawling yet but I'm sure you will be very soon.  

You babble a lot and love to say Dadadada and sometimes say momma.  You are pretty smitten with your daddy and smile so big when he walks in the room!  I love watching y'all together.  

You reach up for me to pick you up.  You do pretty good sitting on the floor and playing with your toys until you realize I'm not right beside you and usually making dinner.  

You are pretty good when we go out even if you get tired.  We don't go out to eat much with you but you love to go shopping!  

You do great in the church nursery and gym childcare.  You usually have one good hour in you then your done.  Usually that's because it's around nap time.  You are so sweet and everyone says you are such a good baby.  

You pretty much look like Colton with a bow at this age.  I need to do a side by side comparison.  Though you look mostly like Colton, all three of you look alike!  

I am so aware that babies grow up way too fast so I'm trying to cherish every moment with you.  I want to enjoy you at this age (I really do love this age) and not wish it away when it's difficult.  

It can be crazy and loud with you and your two brothers but I would have it no other way.  All too soon you will be five and starting kindergarden waving to me from the school bus.  Cue the tears!!!!

You are so so sweet and just the most wonderful baby!  We are so blessed to have you and couldn't imagine life without you!  We love you so much baby girl!

Christmas Parties

Sydney and I went to Colton's school to attend his Happy Birthday Jesus party!  Colton was excited to see us and we were happy to be there.  

This boy LOVES cupcakes.  He couldn't wait to decorate his cupcake.  

My future little baking helper!  

Colton, Sydney and I went to Ryan's school to celebrate in his class Christmas party.  He has the best teacher this year and we just love her.  We couldn't ask for a better kindergarten teacher.  

Ryan and his fun class!  

Love this sweet, sweet baby girl so much! She is such a JOY and just a delight.  She gets sweeter by the day.  

Kicking off our first day of Christmas break at non other than Chick-fil-A!    The boys and Sydney enjoyed some yummy lunch.

Christmas Time is Here

 Here are a few things that happened in December! 

These two cuties (twins) before church one sunday!  

I'm obsessed with Christmas clothes for Sydney.  They are just too cute and adorable!  

 Sweet baby #3 falls asleep in the car all the time.  Thankful for a baby that sleeps week in her car seat (I was parked in the garage and unbuckled her top clip before I took this pic).  

We packed three Operation Christmas Shoeboxes - two boys and one girl naturally!  The boys had a great time picking out things to go in their shoebox.  

We had lunch with Ryan at school.  We love to surprise him and just show up!  

Sweet baby girl before church on sunday!  LOVE this outfit!

December was a very busy month for my cookie business.  I made about 26 dozen Christmas cookies and five birthday sets.  Whew!  It was crazy and good!  Sydney helping me bake one night in the kitchen - future baker!

Love these sweet boys in their matching pjs!  

 It's a shame Colton has no personality, har!

I took the kiddos to the Brentwood library!  The boys loved it! 

We painted Christmas ornaments for our tree, and gifts for the grandparents!

Check out that amazing Christmas tree.  

  Couldn't love her more! 

Matt went to Cincinnati for the Bengals/Steelers game so me and this chick were left in charge.

Bedtime and storytime.  Ryan getting some sweet time with Sydney.  She is completely enthralled with her brothers and is pretty crazy about them.  She smiles and laughs at them all day long.  I pray these three will always be close.  They love each other so much!
