Speed Eater....Oops!

Today, I ran to walmart to pick up a prescription. We only live literally 1 minut from walmart, so I let Sydney hold the prescription bag and play with it on the way home. So we get home I take Sydney inside and take the bag from her so I can open it up and this is what I find:

She ate THAT much of the bag in literally like a minute. So then we noticed she kept chewing on something and after several minutes of struggling with her we finally managed to remove a wad of the paper bag from her mouth. Oops. Guess I wont give her a paper bag to play with on the way home anymore. Even if it is just for a minute.

Ok so this is a tad bit late. But I still wanted to post Sydney's 7 month info:

  • She weighed in at 14 lbs 6 ounces. Which makes her in the 5th percentile.

  • She was 25 1/4 inches long. This puts her in the 25th percentile.

  • As noted above. She's kinda little.

  • She cnt stand it when we eat or drink in fron of her without sharing.

  • She no longer sleeps through the night. Kinda disappointed about this one but what can ya do??

  • She still has zero teeth.

  • She went swimming for the first time. Wasn't so sure about it at first but by the end of it she loved it!

  • She has been sleep trained!! WAHOO! She now will put herself to sleep without assistance! Occasionaly she will protest a bit, but most times she just goes right to sleep! SO nice!

  • Her hair is now long enough to put in a pony tail on top of her head! Love it!

  • Her first word was dada. When he comes home from work she gets really excited and will say dada. I'm not gonna lie....I was a bit sad her first word wasn't mama! haha!

  • She also says babababa over and over again. Bu we havent figured out a real meaning to it yet.

  • She talks A LOT.

  • She constantly needs to be entertained.

  • She loves jumping. ALWAYS.

  • We never knew that having a baby could be so entertaining!! We ♥ her!!

The first is Sydney's newly discovered talent for blowing raspberries.

The second is her love for jumping.

WARNING: Sleep Training in Session

Sleep Training.
Has Begun.
To teach Sydney to go to sleep on her own in her crib.
I'm not very excited about it.
But it needs to be done.
The amount of sleep Sydney and I get will without a doubt decrease.
But in the long run it will be SO nice.
Wish me luck.
Next time you see me I might be cranky from lack of sleep. And now you know why.
Don't say I didn't warn you.
