Laura came into town last weekend so Sydney had a lot of good Grandma time and she got a lot of new clothes courtesy of Grandma Laura and Autie Carol. We at a lot Mexican food twice, of course, and continued with Brian's birthday celebration. We're continuing to work on sitting up, she'll do it for a few seconds then she falls over but she's getting better at it.

Finally...Two Weeks Later

I didn't realize it had been two weeks since I last posted, it really only feels like it's been a few days, so here's what we've been up to the past couple of weeks...
She's been doing great at daycare, and is sleeping great she slept about twelve hours last night, yea!! We, and by we I mean me, are working with her on trying to sit up which she doesn't quite get yet she just topples over. She's doing great at picking things up and putting them in her mouth though! She still likes the cereal a lot and in just a couple of week's we'll be starting on fruits.

Sydney and I went to Jared's play the other night at his school, he was Old MacDonald in their play
. It was really cute, of course Sydney got really fussy just as they were about to start but she liked it when they would sign and dance.

Brian's b-day was this past Mon on President's Day. We went out to dinner with several friends the weekend before last to celebrate and were planning on going out with the family to dinner this past Sun but he and I were both sick so we'll hopefully be able to celebrate this weekend.

Sydney had a Valentine's party at school all the kids exchanged cards and one of her teachers gave her a Valentine's headband. Here she is in an excersaucer at school all decked out in her Valentine gear.

Poor, Sick Baby

Sydney has the croup now, I didn't know that was a real 'disease' I thought it was more of a non-descript term when you had something but didn't know what it was called. This all started around 1:00 a.m. this past Mon when she woke up crying and was so fussy, she was up about 45 min to an hour and with the help of our friend, Children's Tylenol, she went back to sleep. She felt fine, but was still coughing Mon & Tues, and yesterday daycare called because she had a fever so Brian picked her up and took her to the Dr. She's feeling somewhat better now, she's still coughing and still has a fever but yesterday the Dr said she's at the tail end of it and should be better by Fri or Sat.
I know she's been sick a lot (good old daycare!) but luckily it hasn't been anything major, I just keep telling myself that it's good for her in a way because she's building her immune system.

5 Months Old

Clearly I've been really bad about keeping up my blog lately. Things have been pretty crazy since Brian's started a new job and he's working later now so I have my hands very full!

Anyway, Syd's 5 months old now and growing more and more and doing new things all the time.

She's doing great with her cereal and we'll be able to start on fruits and vegetables next month after her 6 mo check-up.

She realy likes sucking on her teething ring (even though she's not teething) or really anything she can get in her mouth for that matter.

She has recently discovered her feet, she'll hold one with her hand and just stare at it.

She likes being upside down...
