Happy Halloween
















Sydney's first Halloween was pretty busy. I took her up to my office this afternoon for our party and when we got home the Lieck's came down to visit. They were so cute Grace was a zebra, Sophie a monkey and Mack a Lion.

Grandma & Grandpa (my parents) and uncle Jason (my brother) came over to see Sydney, she was dressed as a pumpkin (thanks to Jen R for the costume loan) for about five minutes but was the cutest pumpkin I've ever seen!

I Finally Got It!


Sydney's been smiling for about two weeks now a little more each day, but it's been so hard to get a picture. She's either stopped by the time I get the camera or when I shoot she quits and I miss it as evident by the pic of her sticking her tongue out. I finally got it tonight although it's a little hard to tell that she's smiling because her mouth's open so wide!

Another Pumpkin Patch











Today we went with Cara, Jordan & Jared to the Pumpkin Patch in Flower Mound. If you've never been you have to take your kids it's huge and they have a lot of activities for the kids. Sydney went on her first hayride, although true to form for her she slept pretty much the entire time we were there.
She wore her Baby's First Halloween bib (thanks Cindy) and her Halloween onesie (thanks Jackie) she looked so cute!
BTW, if you want to see the pictures in a larger size just double click on them.

Pumpkin Patch


So I mentioned the other day in my post that we went to a pumpkin patch with the Lieck's and Jacolyn sent me some pictures so I thought I'd post them. Since it was an impromptu visit to the patch I didn't have my camera and Sydney wasn't dressed in her Halloween onesie, but she will be when we go this weekend!

Busy Weekend & a New Addition to the Family

We had a very busy weekend this past weekend. Brian's mom came to visit for Greg's (Brian's brother's) birthday so Sydney got to spend a lot of time with her Grandma Laura. We also went to a pumpkin patch close by with the Lieck's. Sydney pretty much slept the whole time, I think we're going to go to a different pumpkin patch this weekend with Cara and the boys.

Also, big news for the Hodges' we're adding to the family and no I'm not pregnant!! Sydney's getting another aunt Greg and Brandi (in the pic above) got engaged last night on Greg's birthday. I'm so exctied to get the little sister I've always wanted! Everyone loves Brandi and we're so happy she's going to be part of our family now. Congrats!!

Sleep is Precious

Sydney turned 6 weeks old yesterday and we're close to reaching a huge milestone, unless it was a fluke. She slept for about 5 1/2 hours last night. Of course this is a much bigger milestone for Brian or I she doesn't really seem to care or notice :). Watch the video for how her naps normally end up...

Welcome to our Blog

So we've decided to create a blog since so many of our friends and family don't get to see us, or rather Sydney, as often as they'd like. Our good friend Jacolyn keeps one for her kids and Brian thinks it's really cool and checks it quite often to see if he's "made the internet" as he says.

Sydney's already been a very busy girl, she's been to several restaurants, to Target a few times, to the State Fair with the Gordo's, and she's been introduced to the shoe department at Nordstorm. It's hard to believe she'll be six weeks old tomorrow.

Check back often for updates we'll try to post at least a couple of times a week and include pictures and videos so you can see what Sydney has been up to.
