Sydney is 1!

I love this face! I can't believe my baby is 1!
We started off by a walk down the freezing cold pier! Sydney loved every minute of it! We then had a super yummy breakfast at Ruby's

After breakfast and nap time we headed to Disneyland! Since it was a cold/rainy day there weren't a lot of people there. We had so much fun and got to do so many fun things. Would I ever wait in line to take a picture with Chip - NO - but when nobody is in line you do it! We also saw Buzz (who was taller than Jeff - what the??)

This girl partied hard! There is nothing cuter than when she is trying to stay awake and rally only to fall asleep as soon she gets in the car! I really can't believe how fast time flies by. I feel like it was just yesterday I was holding this sweet new baby in my arms. She really is the most fun girl in the whole world. I love her more than anything!

It's a Privilege

I have always said that wearing a bikini is a privilege - it's not a right! You don't have the right to wear a bikini just because you can - you need to earn that right by having a bikini body! Having said that when you have a baby bikini body like Sydney then you must work the scandalise Roxy bikini! :) My friend Allison bought this for her when we found out we were having a girl. I died how small it was when I opened it, but I for sure died laughing when trying to get it on Sydney! First - it's a size 2T - WHAT!?!?! Second - we could barely get her thighs through the bottoms. Third - there is NO WAY we were getting them over a diaper! They are so tiny but she was for sure so stinking cute! I love the butt crack shots! She really has the yummiest little body!

Cool Fairy Princess

Sydney went to her very 1st Fairy Princess party for her good friend Ruby Lombardi. It was so much fun and a good excuse to get her dressed up. I didn't take any pictures at the actual party but she loved rocking her wings all day. I love that she will wear her sunglasses! I think she is the coolest!

God Bless America

This was quick photo shoot we did last night! Hopefully more to come! I saw this swimsuit and I decided I had to have it! Sydney is still struggling with a lingering cold and pink eye, but that didn't stop her from turning it on for the camera! I love this little girl more than words can express! And grateful that she will let me do all these photo shoots with her!
4th of July is my 2nd favorite holiday! I love this day and everything it stands for. I am beyond grateful for those who fought for our Independence and those who continue to fight to keep us safe. We are very blessed!
God Bless America!

Just Because

I love little fit hats! They are so cute! I can't wait for Sydney to actually wear them! I couldn't resist this moment! How cute is my baby in her bumbo???

Sydney rocking her boots!
PS - Jeff picked this outfit out - I was impressed!

Nothing better than a sleeping baby! I could stare at her all day! As you can see we swaddle her really good at bedtime and by morning she is out! Sometimes if she can't work her way out of it she will cry and then I will come and unwrap her and she will sleep 2 more hours.
I love this little girl!

3 Months

Sydney is 3 months and is so much fun to be around! Here are a couple of things she is doing at 3 months:
  • Sucks on her fist - I always tell people she is working on her party trick! She really can almost get her whole fist in her mouth
  • She likes to try to grab and hold on to her tongue
  • She gives the most wet drooly open mouth kisses
  • She has the cutest giggle that almost starts out as a grunt and then turns to laughter. Hearing her giggle and laugh brings me complete delight!
  • She wakes up happy! I will be working on my computer with the monitor by me and I will just hear sighs and talking. When I walk into her room she is just laying in her crib looking around. And of course gives me the biggest cutest grin in the whole world! Best part of the day!
  • She is an incredible sleeper! This is not a typo - she sleeps 9-11 hours at night! I just wish I was able to go to bed the same time and wake up at the same time! I love her!
  • She LOVES bath time! She will kick and splash like crazy! I think bath time makes her so tired at night which is why we do every night around 9!
  • She loves being naked! If she starts to cry and I can't figure out why I just start to undress her! She loves being free from those clothes! Summer time will be fun!
  • She loves being outside! She is very aware when her environment has changed and loves the wind in her face! We will go for walks and she loves looking at the trees. I know she can't see the ocean waves yet, but I know that is her favorite thing! She loves being down at the beach!

Bath Time Fun!

One of my favorite nighttime routines is bath time with Sydney! She absolutely loves the water and is so stinking cute in the bath! I am a little sad that she is quickly outgrowing her whale bathtub! She is so fun and plays so good in the bath that I swear it makes her tired and gets her ready for a good nights sleep!

For new years I partied it up just me and Sydney! Jeff was super sick and I was doing everything I could to keep Sydney away from her sick daddy! Syd and I went and got some Pei Wei together and then we came home and did bath time and hung out. My back is starting to hurt from playing with this cute big baby! But Sydney went to bed about 10 pm and so did I!
I hope that 2010 brings everyone good health and happiness!


Sydney went and saw the real Santa at Fashion Island! My family has been going since we were kids so it's only right that Sydney see him too! She slept on his lap and was such a good girl!

Sydney gave us the gift of sleep for Christmas! She slept 9 hours and so did we! It was amazing! Once she woke up we all got in bed together and opened presents! Her grandma Jensen made her the cute doll she is holding. It really was the best morning ever. I will never forget our first Christmas with Sydney!

On Christmas Eve Santa came to the house! We dressed little Sydney as Santa's Reindeer! She was so stinking cute! We went for a walk around the neighborhood and she stayed nice and warm. I really can't get enough of this little face!
Sydney and her cousin Stella got matching jammies and were so cute!
Christmas time really is the most wonderful time of the year. I love everything about it. It was so fun having Sydney this year and the new excitement it brought to our lives. Every morning we got up and read a Christmas story and scripture together. Although I know she will never remember those moments it brought joy to my heart in ways I didn't know possible!

The Grinch!

We got away for the night with some friends before the holidays to see The Grinch at the Pantages in Hollywood. It was so much and the play was really good! And it's always so fun to go out with our fun friends. Afterwards Ruben introduced us to King Taco in LA. You know you are not in a good area of LA when the security guards at the taco stand actually carry guns! :) It was so fun!
