sydney has all sorts of rocking, bouncing, swinging things. after doing the rounds on her various baby items and a few failed attempts at just playing on the floor, she just wants to be by momma. so, over comes the blankets, burp rag and ever popular nuk.
she smiles and coos for a while. she can see momma. then she gets fussy. mom puts the nuk in a few times. then mom(I) looks over to see the beautiful baby sydney all cuddled up. asleep. yup, it's hard work being a baby.
for those who may be concerned, she does have a crib. :)

So, I decided that I would (in my mind) invent a new diaper that combined the two features.
I call them Luggies.
The perfect combo of Luvs and Huggies.
Then, we bought Pampers to see how they worked out. And wouldn't you know it, Pampers stole my Luggies idea.
So, I guess we are Pampers people.

Here's Sydney. almost 2 months in this picture.
I (naomi) have been back to work for a few weeks now and suddenly there is no time for anything. I work with 4-5 year olds at a YMCA child care center. it is lots of fun, but exhausting. wayne and I are both involved at awana at our church as well. sydney has perfect attendance so far. she comes along and rides in a sling all evening, she sleeps through almost all of it, even t loud game time.
i wish i could sleep like that.
anyway...i guess that is it for now, got to go to work.

Sydney has declared her vocal independence. She started talking a while ago and this was our first time catching it on camera. The quality is low, it is just the video from our digital camera, but it is still very cute.
Sydney is a vert smart baby. A few weeks ago, Wayne was away in Colorado. He gave us a call and Sydney happened to be crying in the background, so I held the cell phone up to her to say WAH to daddy. Wayne started talking to her and she stopped crying!!! She was listening and looking around.
I know all parents say it, but Sydney is one smart, beautiful baby.

Sydney is a nuk baby. She loves that thing, it is like a drug for her. Seriously. She goes through withdrawl and when she does get it back, her eyes get heavy and she relaxes right into her mellow high.
Anyway, Sydney is a very expressive baby, this picture was taken just a little bit before the great big grin below.

Sydney 'talking' to Grandpa Fletcher.
Looks more like she's filing a complaint, "I can't work with these people!"
Actually, this is when Sydney was 5 days old. She has a fit that day and literally cried for 5 hours solid. She lost her voice and everything. She was crying, I was crying, and Wayne didn't know how to get either of us to stop! :)
It was a rough day.
We had names picked out several months ago. The meaning of the name was the most important part to both of us. I (Naomi) went through dozens of baby name websites. I first looked at the meaning of the name, then the actual name. There were lots of nice meanings, but then the name would be only so-so. (for example "God is gracious" is a nice meaning, but who knows how to pronounce Eoin [looks like a middle earth name - Gimli son of Eoin]).
Anyway, we liked the name Sydney. It means 'wide meadow,' - Not very deep on the meaning scale. But, then I started thinking about Ps. 23, when the Lord is our shepherd, he gives us green pastures (and maybe a wide meadow) to lay down in. We want Sydney to find her rest in the Lord.
Zenaide (zen-age) is Portuguese in origin. It means 'one who has decided to follow God.' When she puts her trust in the Lord and follows Him, she will rest in his peace and love. I love the meaning and the more we say her name, Sydney Zenaide, the more we love it and her.
Mommy and Daddy love you, girlie.

We had an ultra sound Aug. 1st. We wanted to check the size of the baby. Wayne was 11 lbs. (For those who don't know, the average is 7.5). When I think of having a baby that big, I hum the Baby Belluga song. :) Anyway, we wanted to make sure our baby wasn't that big. The ultrasound gave an estimate of 8lbs, 3oz; with an error margin of 1lb. Not huge, but large. My blood pressure has been up lately as well. So, the doctor came in and we were expecting to talk about what to do when we get past the due date, Aug. 11. She said, well, due to the size of the baby and your blood pressure, I don't want to wait past next Thursday (Aug. 9th). OH! we both said. Wayne was really happy and I was really surprised.
So, we are going to the hospital Aug. 9th at 8am.
We've been ready for a while now. Lately, Wayne will lay his head on my belly and talk to baby, are you ready yet?, and come out, baby, come out! :)
I wanted to put a picture in, but the computer is being picky...i'll add one in later.
