Sydney had her first overnight away from home, so Randall and I could attend a work event in Little Rock. She had a great time with Kenny & Amanda!! They even made up songs just for Sydney and serenaded her with the guitar :) I appreciate the last picture of all the stuff we had to take to their house just for one night. We had our friends over for dinner last night as a "thank you" for babysitting. I'm glad it went well, and I'm sure this will be one of many sleepovers at the Barnes' house!

Rubber Duckie (or Dinosaur)

We figure you can only embarrass your kids until a certain age, so why not have fun with it? Randall says her tub isn't big enough for this many toys. I think he's crazy :)

We first heard our baby laugh March 5, 2010, and have failed to catch it on video until now. It seemed every time we ran for the camera, she stopped finding anything funny! Here she is this afternoon, cracking up at here daddy!

Sunshiny Day on Campus

Sydney's Uncle Evan & Aunt Sylvia got into town yesterday after the LONG drive from Virginia! We spent today walking around campus and I think they are smitten with our little gal. Today was absolutely beautiful and we are worn out from the day. Tomorrow I'm going to give them a few ideas of things they can do, and on Tuesday they are going to keep Sydney for the day. It will give my brother a great taste of parenthood. He did give her a bottle today which was a big step :)

We also found my name on Senior Walk from earning my master's last year. The University of Arkansas is unique in that every graduate's name is on the sidewalk around campus. They are just starting on 2009 grads, and mine was already there. Very exciting for me! I plan to do a rubbing of my name and get it framed.
