Never Again

So last week I had my 6 week checkup with my doctor. As I was getting ready to leave I thought to myself....We are only going to the doctor's office and back, we shouldnt need the diaper bag. Well as we were sitting in the waiting room Miss Sydney projectile vomits ALL over, I had never seen her throw up so much before! So here I am sitting in the waiting room with Sydney who is now soaked all over with throw up along with the blanket i had over her. So what do I do? Nothing. Except for wipe her down with the small part of her blanket that was dry, that's all I could do. Lesson learned. We will never leave the house again without the diaper bag. End of story.

Sydney's latest favorite things

~Licking or sucking on anything that comes close enough to her mouth
~Smiling! but we have yet to get a picture of it!
~the bath
~sleeping for longer periods of time at night
~riding in the car
~looking at windows or anything else that puts off light

1 month

I cant believe my baby is already a month old! She is actually 5 weeks now and it has gone by so fast! She is such an amazing little girl that we love so much! Here are some things about Sydney:

~She loves being awake during the day and USUALLY sleeps pretty good at night

~She loves her binky sometimes and sometimes she hates it

~The times when she loves the binky she likes to hold onto it with her hand while sucking on it

~She is getting really good at holding her head up

~Everyone says she looks like her daddy

~She LOVES to be held

~She loves to cuddle

~She has the prettiest blue eyes! (just like her daddy)

~She hates sleeping in her bassinet and is most often found sleeping in her car seat which she loves!

~She is constantly making her mommy and daddy laugh with her facial expressions and noises

~She loves looking out windows

~She hated the bath at first but now loves it

~Still hates diaper changes

~She is very wiggly all the time!

~She still wears newborn size clothes at 5 weeks old

At her 1 month checkup yesterday (she was actually 5 weeks) she weighed in at 7 lbs 13 ounces and 21 inches long, which is how big some babies are or smaller than some babies are when they are born! She is in the 10th percentile for weight and the 30th for her heighth so she takes after her mommy in her size! She brings so much happiness into our lives we just cant get enough of her!
