14 Months...

Sydney celebrated her 14 month milestone taking in the Mountains of Montana at our Family Cabin just North of Yellowstone National Park. This was her first LONG road trip and boy what a little trooper we have on our hands. Upon our arrival to the cabin she immediately took to the place...every morning she would wake up, we'd bring her downstairs, and before you knew it she was out the door hanging out on the front porch. She would just sit on the steps and take in the view or play with the rocks, but never once did she try to take off. It was like she knew just how to enjoy it! I can't begin to tell you what a difference a month can make. This month Syd is babbling more than ever, making 'G' sounds. She said her first word 'Dog' while we were on vacation, and has started using Da'Da appropriately when pointing to Matt. We often find her attempting to read books...she sits and whispers to herself. There was never a dull moment while on vacation...she walked/ran everywhere dragging her blanket behind her, Giggles and laughs and some of the most appropriate times, shared all of her food with us, made lots of NEW friends whenever we cut her loose, tried to dress herself or put on her shoes, waves hi and be-bye, became quite the problem solver, and gave lots of hugs and kisses. She is getting taller by the minute and her hair longer by the second! This has been such a fun stage and we can't get enough of her right now!!!
