Big Boy!

Cy had a pediatric appointment last Wednesday to eval & remove a very stubborn umbilical cord stump- we were interested to see how much he weighed since his last "weigh in" was at 2 weeks. We were all surprised to discover that our little man has gained 2 1/2 lbs in 3 short weeks!!! At 2 weeks, he weighed 6 lbs 15 oz and at 5 weeks, was 9 lbs 6 1/2 oz!!! Clearly, he is a very healthy his chubby cheeks, double chin and ever multiplying rolls will attest to! We have officially moved into 0-3 months clothing and are trying to finish up the last few newborn diapers on hand before we start using the size 1 variety.
Cy has become quite a fan of walks around the park, quality naps in his bouncy seat, ceiling fans, tummy time and is "learning" to appreciate evening baths (he does love his post-bath massage). He's also been practicing using his sweet little hands and fingers to grip his WubbaNub pacifier, mommy's shirt, etc. It's so fun to watch as he learns and becomes more aware of the world around him every day!
Here are a few photos of his favorite pass times at nearly 6 weeks old...

Enjoying some attention from his Great-Grandad Hughes

We spent the 4th of July weekend with Travis' family in Lakeway (outside of Austin) on Lake Travis. We were able to enjoy some fabulous BBQ at Cooper's in Llano (one of our favorites) & a few wonderfully relaxing days in the Hill Country. We visited Travis' grandma who lives in nearby Buda & introduced her to the newest members of our family.
