Sydney says, "Yummy Rice Cereal!"

Sydney started sleeping though the night shortly after she was 1 month old. It's been a huge blessing. At times I have felt like she is spoiling me. She has consistently slept 8 to 10 hours at night for the past 2 months. Then about a week ago, right when she turned 4 months old, she started waking up at night. It's only gotten worse. Last night she didn't sleep more than 3 hours without waking up and at one point it was less then 2 hours between feedings. Ugh! So tonight we tried rice cereal for the first time. Mommy is really not ready for this. I don't want her to grow up this fast.

Sydney did amazingly well. She really liked it. She choked a couple of times, but I think that was only because she started talking just as I was putting the spoon into her mouth. She was trying to talk to me the whole time. It was so funny. She kept smacking, then talking, smacking, then talking. I think she is going to be a lot like her oldest sister. ;)

Now, lets hope she sleeps though the night.

I had to include this picture because it was just too funny! My silly girl!

Thanks for visiting our blog.

All Dressed Up

Wow, I can't believe it has been 8 months since I last posted. I made a vow to myself this past week that I am going to try to post at least once a week from now on. Anyway, here are some pictures from trick or treating last night. We had fun dressing up in a Little Red Riding Hood theme. I made Reilly's cape, Spencer's wolf hat, and Sydney's embroidered onsie. Sydney got quite a few laughs, giggles and snickers.

Here is the whole gang.

Maddisen dressed up as Little Red's Grandmother.

Michael and Brenton dressed up as Woodsmen.

Reilly dressed up as Little Red.

She was so into the candy I could hardly get her to look at me. Imagine that. ROTFLOL

Spencer dressed up as the Wolf in Grandmother's clothing.

Sydney in her tee I made for her. She wouldn't stop eating her hand and drooling all over herself. Notice the drool covered neckline.

Sydney and Mommy

Thanks for looking and check back often. I really am going to try hard to post weekly.
