In other news, Sydney turned one month old on the 27th, and started smiling (for real, not just gas) that day! She usually smiles and socializes after waking up in the morning or after waking up from a long nap. She's so adorable! Chet hasn't been able to witness this yet since he went back work this past Monday, so the pictures I have of her smiling I've personally taken with her sitting in my lap (so the angle isn't very good on most of them).
Smiling After a Long Nap
We also decided to take monthly pictures of her in the same position to track her growth, but she wasn't very happy during the photo shoot, so we don't have any smiling pictures of her.
Also, my dad (Sydney's Papa John) visited this past week! We had so much fun, and we discovered while he was here that Sydney loves laying on the counter (it's the perfect place for her to look around, kick, and be the center of attention!).

We love baby feet!
