3 months ago, our precious Cy Wesley was born, and every day since then has been filled with countless blessings, awe, amazement and unimaginable joy! What a priceless gift!!! His antics keep us in stitches...he's such a little ham! Of course, every goo, gaa and grunt that proceeds from the mouth of our young son is deemed "adorable", "advanced" and "hilarious" by his proud parents. Here are a few things that our handsome fella is cooking up and dishing out as of late...
*I'll start with the most noteworthy in my opinion...Cy is sleeping 9-10 uninterrupted hours at night...Yahoo! He usually goes to bed around 9 and sleeps until 6 or 7- waking up cuing, & smiling all the while...it's fabulous! Still taking 3-4 (1-1 1/2 hr) naps a day...one would think this would allow lots of time for mom to be productive during the day- unfortunately, not always so!
*Weighs 13.5 lbs (give or take a few ounces) and is eating 6-7 ounces a pop! Looking forward to his pediatric appt at 4 months to measure his length & compare his stats.
*Likes to put his hand up near my mouth when he is nursing so that I can kiss on it...absolutely melts my heart. Nursing has been more rewarding than I ever imagined. Cy can get pretty distracted...but what mom would complain when their sweet son is giggling & shooting them adorable smiles...just waiting to be told to "get back to work"- PRICELESS!
*Loves to "faux cough"- he actually doesn't mind the nasal aspirator because of the opportunity that it presents to cough...undoubtedly getting a positive reaction from mom.
*loves, Loves, LOVES Bathtime...giggling, kicking and splashing about! Travis recently poured a small stream of water from above on Cy's belly when he was bathing...which resulted in an immediate expression of surprise followed quickly by lots of laughter! Papa's so funny!!
*Favs on his play list are: "Jesus Loves Me", "The Wise Man", "The Lord's Army" & "My God is so Big"...I've had to brush up on all the great VBS songs we sang growing up.
*Has become quite the fan of his thumb. Sucks on his fist often, but oh, when he finds his thumb...EUREKA!!! He goes to town.
*Can stand on his strong little legs with just a slight bit of support on his hands! He gets such a look of pride in his eyes when he accomplishes this...and loves the encouragement we throw his way.
*Cy's favorite sounds to babble are: "ah-goo" and the occasional "hey"...he's got lots to say-hold on to your hats ladies and gentlemen!
Well, that's Cy at 3 months in a nutshell...can't wait to see what milestones and adventures the next month will bring.
