Go SU! Christmas Party at Grandma & Grandpa Halstead's

Sydney enjoys watching sports on tv with her dad. She might not know it yet, but she roots for SU, of course, the Yankess and the Giants. Ironically, her father likes the same teams. Sydney meets her second cousin, Lily. Lily is 13 months old and loves babies. She was so excited to see Sydney and give her hugs and kisses.

This is one of those pictures where you can read her mind by the look on her face...
"what the heck is going on?..."


"Hey, you're small like me."

Packed and ready to go!

We had our second night away from the baby this past weekend. We had a wedding in Saratoga - congratulations Melissa & Chris! Sydney stayed with my parents. Before we left I was getting a little Christmas wrapping done when Geoff came in saying that he was ready to go. I look at the duffle bag he's carrying and he's got the baby on the top of our packed bag. She seemed to not mind and it was pretty funny to see, so I grabbed my camera. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did :)

She rolled over today!

Just about 10 minutes ago Sydney rolled over from her back to front. She is 4 months and 1 day old today. She's been SOOOO close for days now and she waited until her dad was home from work to complete the roll. We were cheering her on the whole time-- it was pretty exciting. I don't think I've heard Geoff cheer so loudly since February when the Giants won the Superbowl.
Sydney also had her 4 month doctor's visit last week. She was 16.5 lbs and they claim she's 24.5" long, but they were in a rush and totally didn't stretch her out. I say she's over 25" for sure. I measured her today and she's at least 25.5" or maybe I just have height issues :)

Sydney's Christening

Sydney was Christened on Sunday, November 30th. All of her aunts, uncles, cousins and
grandparents were there on her special day.
