12 weeks old!

I meant to post this last week... but it got busy!!
My darling baby is already 12 weeks old! Holy cow where does the time go??

At 12 weeks old Sydnie is THRIVING! 98% in height & 60% on everything else.
She is THE happiest baby ever. We are seriously having so much fun with her. She is constantly smiling, talking, screaming happy screams, and giggling. She is just the light of our lives. She is already such a little ham, has so many hilarious facial expressions. She makes us laugh so much.

She has discovered her hands, and BOY does she love them!! Yum yum! She is constantly eating them. It's pretty cute.

She is getting so big so fast! I posted last week that she started rolling over. Crazy! I just can't believe how fast time is going by. I can't imagine my life without her. She is just my everything!
Love you baby girl!

this just in... ROLLING OVER!

Sydnie ROLLED over TWICE this week! From tummy to back. She is getting so big! I wish I could freeze time & keep her little forever!

Sydnie Updates...

Sydnie is getting soooo big! And cuter by the minute... I just love her to death. I take many pictures on our long summer days hanging out.

Here she is being cool wearing her hoody.

Sydnie is very lucky to have many people in her life that just adore her! Her Aunt Sadie & Uncle Jordan love her so much, and come play with us quite often. They are the only people I've left Sydnie with. They are amazing babysitters, & I never worry when she is with them.

Sydnie LOVES her Grandpa, & he loves her too! I got a couple cute pictures of them. I love her smiles!

This little baby girl is SOOOO loved!!

The big 2-8!

This past week I celebrated my 28th Birthday! Just saying it makes me feel old & tired. :) I woke up in a really bad mood. I don't know why, but honestly, the last few years on my Birthday, I'm super cranky. I think getting older is especially hard for me. That & Birthdays were so exciting when I was growing up, that now, nothing compares to those fun days I had celebrating as kid, and it just makes me in a bad mood, let down since I have such high expectations.
But I woke up to streamers on my bedroom door, & a decorated house, and my Dave's version of "making me breakfast"... ( a bagel, a yogurt, & a pile of taffy... hahahaha.. oh & a box of bisquick, like he had intentions of baking me pancakes or something... hilarious)

My Day started out crappy, because I just wanted to be in a bad mood. It ended up being one of the best Birthdays ever. My husband always works so hard to make me feel special, and like a princess. I love him so much. I really love love love him!
He gave me my first real diamond earrings. Love them. Love him!
We went to dinner with 13 family members from my side & Dave's. It was awesome. Sydnie was such a good baby at the restaurant & slept most of the time so I could eat & enjoy!

When I got home it was overcast, and sunset, and lightly drizzling.. My favorite. So I got on my bike & turned up the tunes, & went on a bike ride by myself, & reflected on the year-- soooo much has changed in my life. My entire life is not the same as it was a year ago. A year ago I found out I was pregnant. And nothing in my life has been the same since! I have been so blessed this year. We bought our first house, moved 2 times, had a baby, quit my job... It's been crazy, but honestly, THE happiest, & BEST year of my life!! As I was riding my bike I thought about all this, and how happy I was to be alive & healthy-- and to have all the wonderful things I have. All in all, it was a great Birthday.

My entire family pitched in and got me this amazing firepit... so the next night a backyard Birthday BBQ was in order!
It was a blast!

We ended the night by lighting some sparklers...

All in all, it was an amazing Birthday. :)

4th of July weekend

What a fun Holiday! I absolutely LOVE this time of year. Since I was little, I always knew that the 4th of July meant my Birthday was just a few days away, so it made it that much more exciting. I love the BBQ's, the sunny weather, swimming, popsicles, ice cream, sprinklers...etc etc! It was so fun this year to dress Sydnie up in Red, White, & blue... just like my Mom always dressed me.
We started off the Holiday weekend with a BBQ on Saturday in our Backyard with some friends & their kids. Sydnie would NOT go to bed, she was too wound up with all the excitement, so we kept her up with us. I think she looks so cute in her little white onsie (what she has been sleeping in these days because it's been so hot) She was just so happy to be up with everyone, it was funny. She stayed up for fireworks & all!

On the 4th of July, we had made plans to go swimming for the first time with Syd at my Grandpa's pool. I wasn't going to let a little rain stop that! The day was overcast with a little rain. But we still got in the pool, only for a few minutes... but she loved it! I knew she would, because she LOVES the bath. And my Grandpa keeps his pool super warm.

Later that evening, we had family over here for another BBQ & fireworks. We discovered that we have a perfect view of the Country Club fireworks from our front yard! It was awesome, we didn't have to go anywhere. We BBQ'ed chicken, and ate all night long, and did our own firework show. It was a fun day!

Sydnie has a cousin that was born 4 months before her, and we want them to be best friends, so we always pose them together. Haha. They don't like it as much as we do. But we think they are adorable!! Best Cousins forever!! Carter is a cute little boy, we love him! It's funny, because Sydnie is so tall, they are the same length, he's just a little guy in length. So it's hilarious when we put them next to each other, his head looks giant next to her. We call him Mega-mind. hehe.

AWESOME HOLIDAY! Can't wait for more summer fun!
