Voted Most Popular



She's the family trophy. They fight over who gets to play with her. She can poke their eyes, scratch their faces, spit on them and they don't try to get even.
My kids, who can be so mean to each other, turn all lovey-dovey when she crawls by. She cries and they will do their best monkey faces to make her beam her 4-teeth smile at them.
Seriously....if I'd known she could turn a hardened 9-year-old boy into a softy, then I'd have had her sooner (don't think about the math on that one too much)
Sadly I know from first hand knowledge that her years as MVP of the house are short. Soon it will stop being so cute when she grabs their toys/food/LEGO creation/ear/hair/nostril and she will become a threat. Her funny sounds will turn "ee-nnoying" (as Ethan pronounces it). Her messes will be her responsibility and not to be pawned off on more responsible sibs.

So my advice to you Syd, is to live it up!

of course she is mosted popular. Look at her, she is adorable.

I am noticing that Addie is finding Peyton less cute these days.

What a cutie! I wish she'd like me soon. It will be interesting to see how long it lasts. Like Mom said, I was popular once when I was 1...and it was all downhill from there.

Adam has been our only popular baby. I wonder why that is? Were any of the other fruits of your loins so desirable?

So cute! Kind of like Christmas - the good feelings only stay around so long and then wham you're into ordinary life again. Maybe Syd will get lucky and the others won't outgrow their helpful ways anytime soon!

She is DARLING!!! I can see why she gets away with it. Good luck to her, trying to hold on to that trophy!

I can't believe that there is a baby THAT cute! Yes, live it up Syd!

I thought I was for sure going to see my face on this blog post, but I will gracefully concede to Syd as the winner if the vote was really just in your family. I thought for a minute the registration gang got back together to kick-off the Christmas season with a little Amy Grant and I guess my star status just went to my head when I saw POPULAR in the title. Your welcome for that run-on sentence.

PS-cute little babes!

enjoy it while you can Syd... although with that cute smile it may last awhile yet!

You need to live it up while it lasts too! I would definitely use a cute little girl like that to my advantage.
