I can't believe it!
Oh Sydney Lou, I really can't believe you have been with us for one whole year now!
You have brought us SO much joy and your little spunky personality is really starting to show...
People always ask me, "Is she really always this happy?" And for the most part yes, you are such a smiley, happy-go-lucky baby girl.
You are always quick to give a huge, gummy smile and also quick to scowl to let us know when you feel you've been wronged.
You've been taking a few steps now for the past week and are very adventurous. You'll climb anything within reach, which scares your daddy and me to death.
You like to follow your big sister around and don't like to be left out of any family activity. You'll give a holler to let us know that you want to be included.
You're talking up a storm and like to mimic the sounds you hear the rest of us making.
You like to cozy up with us when you start to get tired and love long naps + 12 hours of sleep at night.
You greet newcomers with smiles and say "bye-bye's" with a backwards wave.
We love that you are sweet and feisty...that you think your big sister is the funniest person on the planet.
We know that this upcoming year we'll get to know your little personality even more and we can hardly wait!
We love you Sydney Louise! Happy 1st Birthday!!!
