Cy's Nursery Update...

My fabulous mother-in-law and I spent several hours on Thursday applying a scripture using vinyl letters to the wall above Cy's crib. I LOVE the way it turned out!!! Thanks so much, Gran!!!! Another big THANKS to our sweet friends, the Johnstons whose son, Ranger's nursery provided the inspiration for the scripture. I tried very hard to come up with a bible verse that would be unique to our son, but Chad & Miranda...the scripture that you chose is absolutely perfect for a little boy!
...for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
Joshua 1:9

Mom and I have ordered the fabric for the nursery curtains and window seat; and hopefully, I can sweet talk my hubby into putting up the iron chandelier soon. We're having so much fun!!!

Cy Wesley at 24 weeks...

How your baby's growing:Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he's almost a foot long (picture an ear of corn), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

I'm scheduled to see Dr. Owen again next week for a check-up & glucose screening. I have absolutely LOVED being able to feel Cy's movements & kicks throughout the day, and as a nice Valentine's Day surprise...Travis got to feel several kicks from the outside of my belly! 16 short weeks to go!!!
