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.
