Tooth number THREE!!!

Yes ladies and gents, we have finally broken ground in the upper gum region! LOL

I had a feeling it was coming because Syd has been a bit restless at night and had been spending a lot of time with her index finger jammed in her mouth and anything else she can find. (See Exhibit A and B)

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

At this point, you can’t really see it and I only found it by touch but, I am sure that within a few weeks, I should be able to get a pic of her toothy grin. It was funny because when we had Syd’s 6 month appointment in December, her doctor said, “oh, her lower gums are good and swollen” and then WHAM, within a few weeks she got her first tooth and then a few weeks after that she got her second. Then, we go to the doctor last week for her 9 month check up and the doctor again said, “oh, her upper gums are good and swollen” and wham, 1 week later….a tooth. If this trend holds true, we should see another in a few weeks and then nothing until her 12 month doctors visit! LMAO

Pat is going to be home from his out of town trip tonight and I am sooo excited. I miss my hubby as he has been gone since Monday afternoon. It is not easy being a single mom I tell ya! The only NICE thing was not having to cook dinner this week! I just had soup or something for dinner and was loving it! LMAO

No crawling on the Syd front yet but, I have a feeling it will happen soon. She certainly has the strength for it since I see her hoist her little but in the air to get around an obstacle in her rolling path….she just hasn’t figured out how to get in motion. She is however rolling like crazy and can make it from one end of the room to the other in no time flat. This morning, I was sitting on the couch talking on the phone with my mom and she was directly in front of me. She rolled all the way over to the other end of the room, grabbed her lion puppet and rolled herself (and it) back to where she was in the blink of an eye!

Sydney on the move:

She also hasn’t QUITE figured out how to get from her belly to the sitting position but, can get from sitting to belly with ease. For some reason, she tries to get to the sitting position from her back by lifting her head up (like a little tummy crunch) and then gets mad when she cannot get all the way up! LMAO

The weather has been sooo fantastic here. We are loving it. We have been out almost every day getting some good long walks in. Syd just adores it and doesn’t make a peep the entire time. She is too busy checking everything out! At one point during our walks, I was laughing so hard because she was bent out over the side of her stroller watching the ground move by! LMAO

Loving the sunshine:

Well, I hear my little booo stirring so, I should get going and make her some lunch! 🙂

Hope everyone has a great weekend!



  1. Yay for tooth #3!! Hopefully these next two aren’t too hard on her. What a pretty girl- she looks like she’s wearing eye shadow. How lucky is that!!
    Great to hear you are enjoying the good weather too.

    • Thanks Lor. No sign of #4 yet but, #3 is HUGE! LOL

  2. Wow – congratulations on that upper tooth milestone. I can’t get over her eyes – they are such a pretty blue colour…especially with that stripey shirt thing.

    Hasn’t the weather been spectacular for walking? Today not so much, but other than that – wow!

    Have a great weekend.

    • Yeah, much to her father’s chagrin, they get bluer and bluer each day! LOL

      The weather has been a little up and down lately but, I am not complaining since we haven’t seen any real snow.

  3. Way to go Sydney !!! Love those beautiful blue eyes she has:)

    Hope you and Pat had a great night 🙂


    • Thanks Carol.

      We did have a nice reunion. He got home about 15 minutes before we did and Syd was SOOO excited to see him when we walked through the door.

  4. Glad to hear that Pat is back in town!

    I am LOL at Syd chewing on everything. Too cute!

    Man, her eyes are beautiful!

    • LOL Yeah, the chewing thing is CRAZY. If she doesn’t have anything within reaching distance she goes to her old standby and chomps on her index finger. What a kook!
