4 months Old!

My baby girl is 4 months old! Where the heck has the time gone??
My precious little Sydnie Anne, you're just an absolute RIOT!

At 4 months old here is a few fun things about you:

You've been rolling over like crazy! You kick your little legs & lift your head up high, look around, and suddenly flip over. It's the cutest thing ever.

You're obsessed with your hands, and grabbing at things. You love to grab at my face, Dad's face, hair, mouth, ears, earrings. Whatever you can grasp on. You are getting so good with that eye-hand coordination.

You love to chew on all your toys. You quite fancy the new teething toy we bought you called the Nuby. You chomp on that thing constantly.

You're so interested in EVERYTHING around you, and your little expressions make us all wonder what is going on in that little head of yours! You are SUPER expressive with your eyebrows. It's HILARIOUS. You make us laugh so much with the silly facial expressions you give. Angry eyebrows, happy eyebrows, confused eyebrows, interested eyebrows... you name it, you've got a hilarious facial expression for it. It's awesome.

You're VERY vocal. Daddy says you get this from me. haha. I guess you just like your voice to be heard! It's constant cooing, singing, blabbing, screaming (happily of course). It's so much fun. Sometimes it is just like you are telling us what is UP- your coo's can get very stern sounding! Like you're telling us something REALLY important. We are listening Baby girl, very intently! :)

We bought you a jumper toy center, you sit in the middle, and can jump up and down, twist around, and play with various toys. Here you are enjoying it. You love this toy. We spend lots of time here during the day!

You are a good little eater. You eat about every 3 hours. Doctor says to wait till you are 6 months to introduce anything else into your system, you seem to be thriving, just look at those chunky cheeks & legs! That makes me feel good, I feel like I'm doing a good job, & it's always a relief when we get your stats at your Dr appointments.
You weight 14.8 lbs (71st percentile)
You are 25.5 inches (75th percentile)

You are such a joy & happiness in our lives. We are constantly saying what an AWESOME baby you are. You RARELY cry. You are always so content. You have the biggest, cutest, happiest smiles.
Never forget how much Mommy loves & adores you. You are my everything.

You did pretty well with shots when they actually happened. The night after shots... man it broke my heart! You CRIED & CRIED & CRIED! So not like you. You didn't want to be held, rocked, fed, or even take your binki. It about killed me! Finally you went to sleep at 9 & woke up at 6 am, happy as can be! Poor little legs.

WE LOVE YOU SYDNIE ANNE! You're getting to be such a big girl!

my little baby. forever.

One of my favorite things to do, is at least once a day, for one of Sydnie's naps, is just hold her like I did in the hospital, and just let her sleep on me. Feeling her breath, smelling her yummy baby smell, touching her soft baby skin. There is absolutely nothing in the world like it. NOTHING.
Here we are in the hospital.

This was today. Look at those chunky little arms & cheeks. Gosh I love her. I want to eat her up.

She doesn't really like to snuggle as much as she use to. I can tell she is growing up. It makes me sad. So I will cherish every moment like this that I have. She is my little honey. I love you baby girl!

Jammie Time

So as you can sort of see in this picture, these Jammie's are a little tight. Would you believe those are 6 month Jammies on my 4 month baby? she is HUGE! I constantly am getting told how long and tall she is. I'm anxious to find out the exact stats at her Dr appointment today.
Haha, and of course, another one of her silly faces. She is constantly making us laugh soooo hard. She is so expressive with her eyebrows. Gets that one from Daddy!

pretty little girl

Stop taking pictures Mom! Gosh!

I can't... the truth is I think Sydnie Anne Geurts is the MOST adorable thing ever!

growing up too fast!

someone is in a real hurry to be big, & independent. Since rolling over, Sydnie is trying her HARDEST to scoot/crawl/move sit up etc... I don't like this! I want her to be my baby FOREVER! :) She sure is cute trying to scoot and crawl though. She is really close. I'll be surprised if she isn't crawling by 6 months. That's only 2 months away! Can you believe it?

Sydnie's favorite thing...

I've posted several times before about us spending lots of time in the backyard. But this girl just LOVES her spot under the tree. She seriously would lay there happy as can be all day if I let her. She stares up at the tree branches and squeals happy screams, and kicks and moves. She LOVES it.

Mama's Helper!

Sydnie is getting so HUGE, and so strong. She can hold herself up and sit up great in her Bumbo. So when I'm cooking, or cleaning, or doing dishes, I set her up on the counter to hang out with me while I get some chores done. She loves to hit spoons together and make lots of noise. She is so stinkin' cute. I can't get enough of this cute little face, she is contsantly making the most hilarious facial expressions... I die laughing constantly. She sure brings a lot of happiness to our lives. She is getting so big!

Marens Birthday!

I have the most adorable, special, amazing niece. She makes this world a better place. She turned 7 years old. She was born with some real struggles, but somehow is the happiest kid ever! She is a strong little girl, and I love her so very much!
We spent the day at the Bountiful Rec Center that has a kiddie pool with slides & such. She LOVED it. We ended the day at Grandma's having cake & presents. She was thrilled!

Hangin' out with Dad

Every day when Dave gets home from work, Sydnie & him head to the backyard under the tree to spend some quality Daddy/Daughter time together & to give Mama a break. She loves it. She loves her Daddy.

Swimming with Carter!

We headed to my Grandpa's pool in Bountiful & invited Syd's favorite cousin Carter. They are only 4 months apart... although its hard to tell, because Sydnie is the same size as him. They are the same in height, and their feet are the same size! Crazy big girl.
They both loved it.

Park City!

We beat the heat a few weekends ago & headed up to Park City... it was about 15 degrees cooler, and so nice. We enjoyed a weekend by the pool, eating good food, & going on many walks! It was Sydnie's first time away from home overnight. She did great.

My life.
My everything.

I cannot get enough of her. I love every second I spend with her.
