Oh the sensitivity
For some unknown reason Sydney is, well, way too sensitive. If she barely hits her head on something, she wails like someone pushed her down a flight of stairs. Consequently, if another child touches her she looks at me and then begins wailing. I can't quite figure it out. The only thing I really remember about Grace is that she was a pretty grumpy baby. Not easily upset by minor falls or hits to the head. Just the general I-hate-life-and-every-toy-you-hand-me-is-so-lame kind of attitude. That's kinda funny too because as a 5-year-old, she is hardly ever grumpy. I swear the child wakes up in the best mood practically every day. Maybe that means that Sydney will be a badass when she is older. Kids will be able to knock her out and she won't even shed a tear. Huh, just a hopeful thought. Anyway, I am slightly apprehensive about the upcoming months with the walking and such. There is no way to prevent every fall and she is bound to get her little diaper in a wad. Oh well, distraction is usually the best trick for the toddlers (OHMYGOD she is about to be a toddler).
