Big Girl x2

By BrandonA Day in the Life3 Comments

So there were two achievements in the last 24 hours.  First, “Big Girl” Sydney slept in her own bed for the first time all night long.  Mom slept in the room next door with an ear to the door but it went well.  Hopefully, she understands that we want her to sleep in there and we do not want to disturb her.  Its ironic that later in life, all you want to do is get some good rest with nobody bothering you but when you are a baby you cry about it.  Anyway, you should be able to catch her on the webcam now in the early AM as light comes into the room.  Grandma Fuller caught her in the crib the other day napping — the wonders of technology.

Then, this morning, Syd was hanging out on the bed with us and she did a pretty good rollover move.  I might call a technicality because Mom was on the bed next to her making it slightly downhill but oh well.  She will have it soon.  The arm on the bottom is the problem right now.  She hasn’t figured out how to move it out of the way.

Both of these events caused Mom and Dad to diverge on our Sunday errands to Babies ‘R Us and pick up a couple toys.  One, she is just growing into but she really enjoys the opportunity to sit up straight instead of laying down now and then.  The other fun thing was walking around the store with our baby in hand, while the clueless parents walk around the store with their price scanners filling out there baby registries and feeling overwhelmed.  That was us about 9 months ago.  Ah, how time flies….

Here are some pictures of me and my new toys.  Notice the beautiful quilt in the first picture — my Grandma Fuller bought (well, ripped off) this from a quilt lady here in Colorado for me.

    Mom and Dad – I think the feet are supposed to touch the bottom of the disk. Oh well, she seems to enjoy ‘hanging’ in there. She’s definitely showing a good mix of 1/2 Mom and 1/2 Dad now. What a raving beauty!

    Yep. The activity saucer needs lowered. – Hello Sydney, Aunt Steph really misses you, Mommy and Daddy. It’s just no fun being so far away.
