Sydney turned 2 months last Saturday! It's amazing how much she grew and changed from the beginning to the end of the month. She has gone from newborn diapers to size 1 diapers, and is quickly growing out of her newborn clothes too.
At her 2 month check-up, she weighed 9.5 pounds - which is 3.5 pounds more than when we brought her home from the hospital.
She is now smiling and cooing a lot, which is the best. She also loves to sit facing out, so she can see what's going on around her. She is a pretty good sleeper (knock on wood) - currently she is going down around 8:30 and sleeping until 4am. Occasionally, we do get a little off schedule, she is a baby after all. She goes right back to sleep after she eats at 4.
By far, the most common comment I get about Sydney is "She is so alert" followed by "What big, beautiful eyes".
Brian spent his first nights away from Sydney when he flew to Hawaii to officiate some of our best friend's, Kevin and Lindsay's wedding. We really missed him, and wished more than anything that we could have been there. During that time we kept very busy because MarMe and Grandpa Billy came to stay with us while he was gone.
This month was so full of visitors. Not only did my parents come, but Sydney met Aunt Jenn, who came from Colorado to stay a long weekend with us. Also, she met lots of cousins from the Lederman side of the family. She attended her first wedding, her first Yoga class and her first Happy Hour. She also caught her first cold, a stuffy nose and cough, and had her first shots (except the ones the day she was born, but I didn't see those so they don't count). Both of which were most likely harder on me than her.
Now, some of my favorite photos:
