Sometimes it's hard to believe it's been a year since Sydney was born and other times, when I look through the thousands of pictures I've taken of her or the days when she's not her best, I think yup, we've been at this for a whole year. I wouldn't trade one day of it though. She's the best thing that has happened to Geoff and me.
We had a birthday party for Sydney up at camp and the weather couldn't have been any better. We managed to squeeze a beautiful day in between two rainy ones. Sydney's a lucky girl to have so many 1st, 2nd and 3rd cousins her age. She'll be able to grow up with them and have life-long friends. Here are some pictures from her party:
Lily and Sydney swimming and wading in her baby pool
Grady (2nd cousin) and Sydney
Her enormous birthday cake and believe it or not, there wasn't much left-over. It was a banana split cake. White cake with banana and raspberry filling and whipped cream frosting...mmmm.
Lighting her candles
Excited before digging in!
