An early morning conversation and random updates

Sometimes the conversations I have with Sydney just floor me. I have no idea where she comes up with some of the things she says. This is one we had on Friday morning before school.

Me: What kind of sandwich do you want in your lunch today, turkey or peanut butter and jelly?
Sydney: I want peanut butter and the jelly that looks like blood.
Me: The jelly that looks like blood? I guess that means strawberry!


Sydney also went to the dentist on Wednesday and she did an amazing job. She sat so still while they cleaned and examined her teeth. I was very proud of her. She also got to tell the dentist that she doesn't suck her thumb anymore. That's right folks! After about 2 months of wearing thumb guards and lots of tears we have broken the thumb habit!!!!!!!!!!! She got to pick out a special prize and got a lot of praise from everyone at the dentists office.

For obvious reasons we are a little obsessed with babies and pregnant tummies at our house. I took this one this morning after Sydney saw some adorable baby scrubs that my sweet and very generous friend Nerissa got for Hayden as a viability gift (24 weeks is a big milestone in our labor and delivery world). Thanks Rissy for everything! Don't you just love the expression on her face! She is toooo funny.

The things that little ones say......gotta love them!! My daughter is the same way. I love the pic of Sydney and her "pregnant" belly.

How cute!! You'll have to pull that pic out someday when she really does have a pregnant belly. What a sweet moment it will be.
And congrats to Sydney on the thumb sucking .... that's a HARD one to break.

Hysterical picture of Sydney's pregnant belly! And congrats on no more thumb sucking. That's great! Has she always sucked her thumb? Did she have a pacifier? We'll be trying to wean Maddie off the paci soon and I'm wondering if she'll start sucking her thumb as a replacement.

I love that she uses blood as an adjective! Perhaps she will be following in you and your Mom's footsteps and become a nurse too!

I can just see that picture of her pregnant belly at her baby shower. :)
