It's been 6 weeks since I blogged!
In the life of a baby 6 weeks is huge. This marks the difference in Sydney finally smiling at us, laughing at us, teething, sitting up, rolling over and so much more. These pictures are a story of our past 6 weeks starting from today working backwards to May 1st! At the beginning of May we went to Guy's mom's house for 5 days to finally have Christmas with the whole family. We also got to meet Guy's sister, Rachel's daughter Tabby for the first time. We enjoyed our time and it was good for the kids to see their grandma because they only see her about once a year. Aspen baked bread and blew bubbles with her, and Sydney just enjoyed smiling at her! After our time there, we headed to Shawnee to see my brother and his family! We had an awesome time with them especially with my niece and nephew and we also celebrated my 30th b-day on May 12! For my b-day they wrote the reasons they love me on 30 pieces of paper located all throughout the house! It was very thoughtful and also kinda funny! Most of my brother's comments were like, "I love Nancy b/c she thinks she can play hockey, or she thinks she is cool..etc...." I loved them all though!! :-) Sydney also marked her 4 month b-day before we left for Oklahoma. She weighed 14 lbs and was 24 inches long. She just started smiling and by 5 months was laughing out loud! She is the happiest sweetest baby in the world and I cannot believe she is growing up so fast! A few weeks after we got home from Oklahoma my cousin Holly and her new husband Josh came to visit us! Sydney was just about in love with Josh and Aspen stuck with Holly. When they left, for two days all I heard about was going to Holly's house. On May 24th Syd turned 5 months and on the 27 Aspen turned 2 1/2. Sydney is laughing, rolling over, sleeping through the night and is just thriving! She is around 15 lbs and is just so chunky! She is a major momma and daddy's girl. When she goes to Guy she instantly grabs his goatee and then is suddenly calm. When she sees me she grabs my hair and just talks and coos at us. She ADORES Aspen and half the time we are telling Aspen to get off Sydney or to play softly with Sydney and then we see that Sydney is cracking up at what Aspen is doing! Aspen is around 29 lbs now and is just getting those mean two year molars. She is soooo much fun and just really loves her "momma nanny" which I love. Everyday I get hugs and kisses and cuddles. She will say, "Momma..need a Kiss? OKAYYYYYY" and then she kisses me. She does not like bugs but is not really scared of them either. She likes to make a show of it, like if she sees a bug she yells out, "WHOAH scary spider..lets kill it Nanny". Then, she gets really close to it and asks me to kill it. She carries our flyswatter everywhere saying, "I got the swatter..lets get it". A few days ago I walked into Syd's room and I saw two legs sticking out of the crib. Aspen found a way to climb in Sydney's crib and though I could not see Sydney in the crib when I walked in, I did hear her laughing at Aspen! Life has been crazy lately, but so good! We just love our girls and feel especially blessed to have healthy children!
