Sydney's using her hands!

Sydney has had a big week as Mommy started back to work, and was away from home on Monday, Wednesday and part of today. She stayed with Sarah and Ben on Monday, and her Nana Helen came down to keep her for the past couple of days. They made the transition much nicer for Sydney's Mommy.

In other news, Sydney is really starting to explore and use her hands to grab and hold onto toys....





Here is a cute video of Sydney figuring out how to kick a toy off of her leg. :-)

Sydney goes to the beach :-)

For the past week, the three of us have been on our first family beach trip in Destin, Florida. Sydney was so good, and really did well. We had great weather, and an awesome time together!

The three of us stayed Saturday to Saturday, while Sydney's two grandmothers came down for four days to see her and babysit while Mommy and Daddy had fun in the sun.

Here's hoping for many more wonderful vacation times in the future.

Below are some pictures that highlight Sydney's trip.

Sydney's first photo shoot



On Friday morning, the three of us went to our first family photo shoot. Sydney did very well, and thanks to Gabrielle Bush, who we know through church, we got some beautiful pictures of her. (Yea, so we're a little biased, but we're allowed to be!) The slideshow is a collection of our favorites, after spending over an hour trying to narrow down the options.

Sydney and Simon

On Friday night, our friends Ben and Sarah Dahmer and Cortney, Laurie and Simon Basham came over to hang out. We had a lot of fun with everyone and it was a great time for Sydney (who turned 10 weeks old today) and Simon (7 months) to start becoming friends, since they will both be staying with Sarah in a couple of weeks.
