Sydney has now become proficient at rolling both ways. She perfected the tummy to back roll at about 17 weeks and has been doing it more and more. She now rolls all over the place and just yesterday, managed to roll into the coffee table and into a wall. I did not leave her for extended period of time, literally just turned my back for 15 seconds.

Her sleeping is still not great. Ralph and I are now ready for her to sleep longer periods at night because we are tired of being tired. She typically heads to bed at 6 and eats at 9 or so whenever we head to bed, around 1 or 2 and then around 6 when we all wake up for the day. Typing it out it doesn’t sound too bad, but not getting continuous segments of sleep does wear on you. If I could just drink a pot of coffee in the mornings to get me going, it would be okay, but since I am still breastfeeding and I have determined that she is sensitive to caffeine, I try to avoid it at all costs and just walk around sluggishly at times.

We just PCSed to Syracuse, NY, so we are trying to find a new pediatrician for her and hopefully one that we like. We have already decided that noone can compare to Dr. Popp at Leon Springs Pediatrics.

She is starting to lift herself up on her arms very high and I think that crawling may occur sometime within the next month or so, but we will see.

Other than that, when she does get the rest she needs, she is a smiley, happy baby. But when she doesn’t her nickname quickly becomes fuss bucket and the only place she is happy is in our arms. I’m thinking that since last night’s sleep was all over the place, that today might be one of those days.
