Sydney was born in Honolulu, Hawaii at 11:09 PM on New Year’s Day, 2010, making it another one of the happiest days of this Grampa and Gramma’s lives. With MJ (our first grandbaby) and Sydney being only two-and-a-half months apart, we have lots of joy in our lives. God’s awesomeness is proven once again when you realize what a beautiful gift the human heart is that it can stretch so far as to contain all the love these babies create.
Here is a recap of some of my favorite candid shots of Syd’s first year from our first trip to Hawaii two weeks after she was born, to the kid’s vacation here in July, and then again in Hawaii in December. She is a collection of sugar and spice for sure, but also of beauty and amazing blue eyes, friendliness, tenderness, patience, and endearing quirkiness with her high pitch shrills, pity giggles, fake coughs, and wild hair. She is a logical thinker and so full of expression. She loves to walk, wave at people, carry things, and put everything in her mouth! She’s a lover, that girl. Happy birthday sweet girl from some of your biggest fans!
