11 Pounds of Love

Sydney just turned a month and weighed in at 11 pounds 1 ounce. She doesn't even fit into some of her 0-3 month clothes! Lucas better watch out she's going to start stealing food off his plate.

Well, having two children is challenging to say the least. When Steve is home it is manageable but the problem is Steve doesn't have one of those 9 to 5 jobs. It almost laughable trying to bathe Lucas with Sydney strapped to me while I'm trying my best not to bang her head on the sink or tub. Lucas has been really good though. He likes to point out to everyone that Sydney is his sister and he always waves and says hello to her.

Sydney already has a strong personality to say the least. In other words, she cries a lot. I've been trying everything. Right now, she's a mama's girl and likes to cuddle with me all the time. Hopefully she'll feel a little more "at home" in the world soon so her brother doesn't have to bang on the wall when she's crying.

My Big Girl!

Sorry for the lack of posting but, you know, I have a 2 1/2 year old and a 3 week old. Not much gets done around here except for diaper changing and feedings. Anyway, when we brought Sydney in for her check-up she weighed 9 pounds 1 ounce. The doctor weighed her twice because he couldn't believe that she gained 15 ounces in a week! He said they look for newborns to gain about 7 ounces in a week. Sydney doubled the expected weight. He suggested I bottle and sell my milk supply since there was so much. No thanks.

Our friend, Jenn, came by to take some pictures of the kids. She a great photographer and friend and she took gorgeous pics! Take a look at her website:
