We have been super lucky with Sydnee. She is really a good baby. She cries when she is hungry or Mad at us, which sometimes happens. But most the time she is happy. She has just started to "talk". She loves her mobile and will just stare up at her friends and chat. It is so funny. Also she has been sleeping through the night in her own bed in her own room for about three weeks now, minus the time in Vegas, all though she still slept through the night. I had been putting her in there for her naps during the day and then one night decided it was time to try. She slept for 9 hours and now averages about the 9-10 each night. I guess Heavenly Father realized how hard pregnancy was on me He wanted to give me a break with her as a baby. Although I have a feeling I will get back what I gave in her teenage years. Pay back is a &;*$@^, right mom? Not that my mom would EVER say those words. She would just say I am getting what I deserve.
We really haven't been that busy but we did just get back from Vegas. Charlie and I hadn't taken a Honeymoon so my dad got us a room at Tahiti Village which is just down from the action on the strip. We were there for a whole week and had a great time. We finally made it to the strip on Friday night and drove home on Saturday. On Tuesday we went to the Hoover Dam. It was hott but was still pretty cool to see the new bridge they are building and to see to dam its self. Sydnee was NOT a fan of the heat but did pretty well over all. For the rest of the time we just lounged around the pool and my husband actually got in the water with us. Sydnee wasn't too sure of the whole pool thing. She would fall asleep as soon as I put her suit on and wake up as soon as we got back to the room. Stinker. Thursday, my best friend Amber's little girl Brooke, graduated from Kindergarten. It was nice to be there for her big day. The kids just loved the baby and wanted to hold her all the time. Aubree, Amber's youngest (almost 2), was so fascinated with Syd. She just wanted to look at her and touch her and talk to her. She was quite the chatter box. We had a great time, thanks mom and dad.
