|Double digits - 10 months and 10 rolls!|
This month we celebrated Passover and Easter. Passover was dinner with all the Lederman family. For Easter, our neighborhood had an Easter Egg hunt for the kids, and we had some neighbors down for Easter brunch. It was pretty low key this year.
Right now her favorite toys are her stacking cups, her wooden toy car, her maraca and piano. She thinks it's hilarious every time the car crashes into the walls. Daycare kept telling me how much Sydney loves the toy pianos they have, so we bought her one. It's true, she loves playing it and also her maraca. She'll just shake, shake, shake the maraca, take a break, put it in her mouth, then go back to shaking. Other things she really likes right now are flipping her light switch to turn off the light in her room, and being held upside down. Once you hold her upside down once, she'll lunge backwards so we'll do it again.
Her legs are getting stronger, and she is standing at her play table for a while. She can pull herself to standing if she is slightly elevated from the ground to start with (like sitting on my foot or leg). What she hasn't figured out is how to move her legs and feet to get balanced so sometimes she is in a ridiculous stance but she is happy.
I don't think I've mentioned this before, but we hired a babysitter, Aine. She is a neighborhood girl who has come to watch Sydney 2 times now. Basically, we put her to bed, then Aine comes over and hangs out while we go out to dinner and a drink. Hiring a babysitter is one of the only things that makes me feel old and grown up. It's so different than having family watch her.
Ok, on to the good stuff, here are my favorite photos of the month:
|Love the belly sticking out|
|I mostly love this because this is her making a very high pitch scream|
Just a quick little burst, and it's so cute
|And one more from that day|
|Little mohawk. Can't wait for her to grow more hair|
|Looking pretty cool in her Babiators.|
|St. Patricks Day|
|Cousins in green|
|playing? fighting? sharing? you decide|
|Great big kiss|
|Just looking cute|
|She loves banging things together.|
|At the neighborhood Easter Egg hunt - there were a ton of people there|
but with the angle of this photo, you would never know
|Toes in the pool. She loved it and we can't wait for her to get fully in. She loves water in any form. |
In a glass, coming from the faucet, in the bath, in her sip cup. She is going to love the pool.
|The whole family|
|Looking at the cute baby|
|At Passover, Aunt Adina and Uncle Sean gave Sydney an Easter Egg (I know, holiday confusion).|
She was pretty excited about it - it had some teething toys in it. Thanks Adina & Sean.
|Passover seder - reading the haggadah - well, the kid version|
|Grant joined us for Passover too, cutie pie|
|Sydney was actually really sick when I took these photos, |
but I was able to get a few good ones. Headbands come off pretty quickly if she isn't distracted.
