Catching up...

Not crazy about hats...
She totally looks like a 3 year old in this picture!

Suited up for the big snow!

Game day with dad.... the Giants lost :( Another one and done outfit...


Sorry! It has been a while since we have updated, so we have a lot to cover. Last Friday, January 23 I felt a tooth coming in on the bottom in Sydney's mouth. I think it's been bothering her because she just hasn't been herself lately. To top things off for her, she got sick last Sunday. It is really her first illness besides a few stuffy noses here and there. She has had a stomach bug most of the week. Poor thing. Geoff, her Uncle James and I all caught whatever she had and were very sick earlier this week. Luckily the worst of it lasted only 24 hours. The flu shot didn't work for this strand and it was BAD.
Sydney is getting the hang of her walker and jumperoo (that is a free-standing jumper). In the walker she was only scooting backwards for a while, but now she's figured out that if she stands and leans forward she came move in that direction too. In the jumperoo a few days ago she would push off with one foot then the other so it looked like she was dancing. Now she's figured out how to coordinate her feet and jump. She's learning so fast.
She is no longer in the same spot I leave her in when I set her down. She immediately rolls over and is scooting backwards. I found her under the coffee table the other day. We'll have more updates soon - we have her 6 mo. appointment later today...

Christmas & Key West









Sydney went on a plane for the first time on her way to Key West. We left the day after Christmas and were there for about 9 days. I was nervous that her ears would pop on the flight and she would scream, but she was totally fine. On the last leg of the flight home she actually slept through the take-off and landing.
I'm having a hard time believing how big she's getting. We had gotten all 3-6 month clothes for Key West, but she was in 6-9 month clothes weeks before we left. She had to squeeze into the clothes we had gotten for her! She is now rolling from front to back and back to front. She is also sitting on her own pretty well. I am right there to catch her if she tips while sitting, but she does a good job balancing herself. Teeth must be on their way because she's been chewing on everything near for weeks. When she's on her belly she can hold herself up, straightening her arms and reaches for toys in front of her. We're making some good progress and I'll have to baby-proof this house soon! Here are some photos from Key West - Enjoy!
