The weather has been AMAZING. This fall I have to admit that I was a little sad that I was missing the fall in Utah/Maryland. I always said, "I NEED SEASONS!". Turns out, I don't need winter past December 31st. I couldn't be happier that it is 75 degrees in January. We went to the beach on saturday with some friends for several hours and had a ball. Sydney was perfect. She didn't wake up once.

My mom came to stay with us for a week and a half. THANK HEAVEN. I would not have gotten through Sydney being in the NICU without her. She was the biggest support and help in the world. I am SO grateful for her. She's the best mom ever.
Sydney's very first outing was a trip to Costco. I guess it was a little intense for a one week old. Yes, she is actually in that stroller somewhere.

Sydney was born on Monday, January 3rd at 7:21 am. She weighed 7 lbs 6 ounces and was 19 inches long. Her delivery went very well for me, but apparently not so well for Syd. Sydney wasn't able to get rid of all the amniotic fluid in her lungs before coming out, which made it very hard for her to breathe initially. They whisked her away to the nursery to put her on oxygen and take a few tests. The test results indicated infection in her little body and so the doctors admitted her to NICU and put her on a 7 day antibiotic cycle. It was really really hard to have her in there, but the nurses were incredible and she recovered completely. We are SO happy to have her home. She is such a sweet little angel. We really adore her.
