On Friday Sydney had her 2 month doctor appointment. She had to get 4 shots and she did not love that, it was a rough day. We did find out that she weighs just about 11 lbs (she started at 9 lbs 3 oz, so she really hasn't gained that much). She is 23.75 inches long, very tall and skinny. My dreams of having a chubby baby girl are out the door.
Speaking of dreams, mine have been great. On Mother's Day Sydney decided to sleep through the night (what a great gift, thanks), and she has continued with this new found talent ever since (except one congested night). She typically sleeps from 9pm to 7 am, I love her. Her temperment is overall pretty good (of course she has her moments, don't we all).
She started smiling a few weeks ago, and she is especially happy first thing in the morning. I tried to get a picture of her smiling, but no such luck, you'll have to settle for not crying. I haven't been that great about taking pictures, I thought I would be better, I definetly need to start doing better, and that will be my goal. So at 3 months expect more pictures.

Isn't he cute. He was a major spazz the rest of the program. He just would not sit still. His poor teacher, I'm sure he challenged her this year.

The Cake: I gave Tanner the choice of what cake he wanted I told him I would do a science flask or an eyeball and brain. He chose the flask, this I found on Family Fun. You bake 2 bundt cakes, place the first bottom-side up and frost then put the next cake bottom-side down on top of that. You put a paper towel roll (wrapped in foil) in the bundt cake hole. Then you just frost to look like the flask. You can get details on familyfun.com. I am not good at making frosting smooth so that part was a bit tricky for me. Also, you put blue cotton candy in the top of the paper towel roll to look like vapor. The only kind of cotton candy I could find was from the dollar store and it was not light and airy like you would get at the carnival, so it did not acheive the exact look that I wanted. But all in all it turned out and Tanner thought it was great. Total cost for cake and frosting $5.
Drops on a Penny: Next we used the same droppers as before and slowly dropped water onto the surface of the penny. The water will form a big bubble on top of the penny (pretty cool), I was able to get 42 drops of water on the penny. The kids just had a good time squirting water on the penny.
Diet Coke Mentos Geyser: This is a pretty fun experiment. You quickly drop 7 mentos into a bottle of soda (Diet Coke works best because diet has no sugar = easy clean-up). What happens is the soda erupts out of the bottle and goes very high. If I can figure out how I will put a very short video clip on of it. This experiment cost me about $15 for soda and mentos.
So sad, no more parties till November.
