Sydney has been busy talkin' up a storm. So again I asked Sam what she was saying and he said, "She's not saying I like cars. She's saying I love you." Well, I'll take that! (You may recall from a previous post that Sam interprets Sydney's motor noises as meaning "I like cars.")
Speaking of Sydney, she had her 6 month shots today and handled them like a champ. OK, that's a lie. She screamed bloody murder at the mere touch of the stethoscope. But doesn't it seem like all parents say little Johnny was "a champ" or little Jane was "a real trooper"? It's like when people ask you, "Is she a good baby?" What the hell kind of question is that anyway? I mean, if she were fussy (which frankly she is sometimes - though luckily she's outgrowing that nasty reflux) am I supposed to say, "Nope, she's a bad baby"? So, to you readers out there (hello?????), I'd like you to know that my dear Sydney is a good baby and handles shots like a champ. *wink*wink* At any rate, to us, she's perfect.
I wanted you to also know that I already received the paci clip that I mentioned in last Friday's post. That sure didn't take long! Only 3 days - and over a weekend! Anyway, it's quite cute!! It is smaller than I thought it would be, but I suppose the smaller chain explains why it doesn't have the "snap in half" safety feature that the longer Hanna Andersson paci clip has. It takes more time than it should to attach the paci to it since that doll gets in the way, but luckily I shouldn't have to attach a paci to it more than once a day.
Sydney is entranced by the cute beads and it does it's job of keeping the paci off the ground - so it's a hit. Parts of the doll are not on the paci chain itself so I worried that those beads might be at risk for falling off and become a choking hazard but they seem very secure and the company I bought them from (well, the company that Amazon routed me to) assured me that they are secure and to toss at any sign of defect.
Until next time,
