5 months

Well, it has taken me about 5 months, but I feel like life is back to normal. Sydney is on a schedule and sleeping predictably. Life doesn't seem all that different anymore. (In fact, I don't know how we ever lived without Sydney.)Hopefully I can get back into the swing of blogging again. So here goes...
It has been crazy weather. We were stuck in the house for 5 days. Today I could take it no longer! I got real crazy and went to the grocery store. I know, I know, I am out of control. When I got home I made good on a very important promise to one very important little man. Liam and I hit the slopes. Well, as far as he was concerned it was the slopes, in reality it was our backyard on the golf course. Liam took to it straight away. I was actually the one who was scared. Something about throwing my 3 year old son down an icy slope, hurdling at unnatural speeds, on a trash can lid, totally put me on edge. Liam was totally fearless. He decided that I was not capable of giving him the push off he was looking for and made a bee line for the nearest dad who had no problem pushing children on trash can lids down icy slopes with reckless abandon. Liam had a blast! I actually had a great time too. I love seeing my baby boy enjoying life.
Sydney spent her Friday at home hanging out with her main man, her dad. Poor Sydie Boo missed out on the snow fun but she is coming into a fun world of her own. She has been waking up every morning as of lately, wide eyed and bushy tailed. She coos and smiles like she is seeing you for the first time. When she finally gets me out of bed we go to the kitchen and I usually put her in her new, beloved exersaucer while I make my coffee. (I am hanging on by a thread in the morning, coffee is my lifeline these days.) When this ritual first started she mostly would just hang out there randomly batting at its toys, now she is playing deliberately. She is still a tiny, little thing but I can already tell she is fiery...and I love it.
Like I said, it has been 5 months since we became whole as a family of 4 so I took some pictures to commemorate the occasion.

Aren't they beautiful?! I am so blessed. Goodnight!
