5 Month Baby

Niskayuna, NY (October 22, 2015) – Cyndy and Paul (C&P) announced today that they will continue to prepare an entry for 2015 Baby Simona in the brick house through 2016.  Sponsorship details for 2016 will be announced at a later date.
Niskayuna, NY native Simona, 5 months, did lots of baby stuff during the 2015 season.  C&P hope to continue that momentum next year.
“I’m very excited and honored to be continuing my career in the brick house with mummy and papau,” said Simona. “It’s been my goal since I was a small girl to stay at the brick house. I can’t thank mummy and papau enough, it has been a great experience this past summer with them. The team is coming off a great 2015 season and hopefully we can build on that success. I will be able to focus on training for next year knowing I have a place on the grid secured."
"For sure it has been great working with Simona," said Elwood, her brick house teammate who is also continuing next season.  "Her feed back has been a big boost to the team these last few months.  Our set ups are very similar and it has been great working with her.  We both like frequent feedings and naps. Her addition has been seamless and for sure I look forward to next season."
"All of us at the brick house are so happy to be able to extend this partnership," said team principle Cyndy (mummy). We have worked really hard to find the funding early to be able to make this announcement. It has been great working with Simona and we look forward to great things next year."

Florence is 2 months old! 
Big brother is getting used to having her around and is sometimes very tender with her.

Not sure who handed down the kitty shirt, but it is Silas' favorite, as you might expect.

Neck muscles getting stronger each day.
