Sydney is 7 months old!


We celebrated 7 months with a banana, peach, mango pie (puree)!

Our little girl is SEVEN months old!  She is now crawling, climbing on anything she deems climbable (including a bare wall… Apparently, she thinks she is spider man!)  pulling herself to stand, walking in a walker, and eating three “meals” (mostly pureed fruits, veggies, and grains plus yogurt, beans, and tofu) a day.  She is a very happy little girl and she is currently enjoying the end of her week-long stay with her maternal grandparents in New York (aka Disneyland)!  Here are the most recent photos:


She arrived in New York to find her very own pit of balls to play in!


She absolutely loves her step n play in New York!

Who Needs to Crawl?

For some reason, Sydney seems to be uninterested in crawling. She’ll crawl a few feet if she needs to get to a toy but, for the most part, she seems much more interested in trying to stand and walk. Here is a series of photos of these efforts, which are quite fun to watch!

Standing 1

A typical non-crawl in which Sydney sticks one leg out to the side.

Standing 2

Sydney loves standing up if you just give her a hand!

Standing 3a

Any object is a good ladder to climb up, including her dad’s legs. First of four photos.

Chairs are not for sitting.
