Santa's Belated Visit...

Santa made a belated delivery to the Epperson family on Tuesday, but there was certainly no shortage of merriment at his arrival. It was clear by the volume of gifts that Cy & Ellie have been on Santa's GOOD list their first few months of life!!! We are extremely thankful for our families who we love so much and for all the blessings that we've enjoyed in the past year!

Cy- 7 months, Ellie- 8 1/2 months

Joy to Our World!

How very blessed we are to have a now 7 month old who brings so much joy to our world!!! I feel like I just posted his 6 month report and here we are again. Cy Wesley's cute little personality has really blossomed. He is quite the entertainer....loves attention and knows which facial expressions, sounds and tricks to pull out at just the right time to get smiles and praise from his audience. This boy LOVES his momma...and you'll get no complaint from me! He has such a sweet heart and loves to snuggle- again, much to his mom's delight. He's growing into a little boy so quickly...I don't feel like I can hold him, kiss him, or just sear into my memory all the joy that he is at each special moment enough. cup runneth over!!! Here are a few things that Cy is doing at 7 months:
  • He's prepping to crawl! Cy can wriggle and army crawl to get to his desired destination and he pulls his left knee beneath him pretty well.
  • Loves to roll around...belly to back, back to belly, left, right- he can do it all!
  • Is starting to pull up in his crib. Lower mattress...check! He hasn't figured out how to put his feet beneath him just yet, but he pulls himself up with his strong arms and talks and smiles at momma through the crib slats.
  • Is wearing Size 3 was hard for mom to say goodbye to Swaddlers!
  • LLLOOOOVVVVEEESSS his jumperoo!!! Unquestionably, one of our best purchases to date. When mom needs free hands, the jumperoo paired with a Baby Einstein DVD is my go-to!
  • His fingers are permenant residents of his mouth these days.
  • Has graduated to some pretty interesting combinations of Stage 2 baby foods. Oatmeal/Peach/Mango, Apples/Sweet Potatoes, Carrots/Peas/Spinach...yum!
  • This is what his daily schedule looks like:
~ 7:00-7:30 am: Wake-up, bottle, cereal w/ fruit
~ 9:00-9:30 am: Morning Nap, when wakes...bottle, remaining cereal & fruit
~ 12:00-1:00 pm: Afternoon Nap, when wakes...bottle
~ 3:30-4:00 pm: Short Nap Late Afternoon Nap (30-45 min)
~ 5:00-5:30 pm: Cereal, fruit, veggies
~ 6:00 pm: Bath, bottle, prep for bed (lotion, jammies, read books, listen to lullabies)
~7:00-7:30 pm: Asleep

  • Favorite books: "Chugga-Chugga, Choo-Choo", "The Very Hungry Caterpillar", "I See a Monster".
  • Has mastered his sippy cup & likes to munch on "Mum,Mums" when mom and dad are eating. He is also sitting up well in his shopping cart/highchair cover which has made grocery shopping & eating out more enjoyable for us all.
The next month promises more firsts and fun! We love you, Cy!!!

White Christmas!!!

We woke up Christmas Eve morning to a gorgeous snowfall...not too shabby of a beginning to Cy's first Christmas holiday. My love for Christmas increased 100 fold as I experienced the wonder and excitement of this cherished time with my family through the eyes of our sweet baby boy. Thank you, Lord for special moments like these!
Thanks, Mimi for the adorable hat!
Having some fun with Joey (6 months)
Cy (7 months), Hannah (5 months)
Oh, and a side note...I celebrated my 30th birthday on Christmas Eve!!! So far, the first couple of days of my 3rd decade of life have been pretty darn fabulous!
