Before you were born,
we dreamed of you,
we imagined you,
we prayed for you.
Now that you are here,
we hope for you,
we love you,
we thank God for you!
Lila Grace at 10 weeks...
And just because I think comparisons are so fun...here's big brother around the same age. Can you tell that they are siblings???
Speaking of our little man...Cy Wesley is now 20 months old!!! He never ceases to amaze us with all that he is learning and accomplishing these days. Here are a few things that I want to remember about our handsome boy at this age:
~He can repeat almost any word...or get pretty close, anyway.
~Likes to back-up slowly- all the while saying "Back, Back, Back...". He thinks this is hilarious!
~LOVES puzzles & this boy is a whiz! He has a puzzle containing all the letters of the alphabet along with animals that correspond to each letter and he can put it together in no time without so much as breaking a stride! So smart! He also likes to say "Dump" as he does just that to all the pieces before reassembling them. Purposely putting a puzzle piece in the wrong spot and saying "Nope!" is also lots of fun.
~As I mentioned, Cy tries to repeat almost any word that you say, but some new words to his vocabulary in recent weeks include: "Puz-zes" (puzzles), "Mo, Peez" (More, Please), "Blue", "Pu-ple" (Purple), "Orange", "Se-bra" (Zebra), "Toothpaste", "Hi, Lila", "Nan & Bop" (Gran & Pop), "Damps" (Gramps), "Mimi", "Tractor", "Amen", "Nummies" (Gummies/vitamins), "Dink" (Drink), "Mik" (Milk), "Hep, Peez" (Help, Please), "No, Ma'am", "Yes Ma'am", "Dump Truck", "Hose" (Horse), "Peg" (Pig), "Bird", "Shark", "L-phant" (Elephant), "Step", "Bus", "Da Books" (The books), "Brush Teeth", "Socks", "Shoes", "Pants", "Diaper", "Sep" (Sheep), "Lion", "Melmo" (Elmo), "Pete" (his lovey) & "Zo-Zo" (Zoey)....WOW, clearly he's become quite the chatterbox!
~Bridges himself on furniture. Upper body on couch, feet on coffee table.
~Can point out eyes, nose & mouth and say the corresponding word.
~Likes to walk around the house yelling "Cyyyyy". This too, he finds extremely comical!
~Favorite videos right now are: "Monsters" (aka: Monsters Inc.), Toy Story 2, Baby Einstein Numbers Nursery and Baby Noah.
~Likes to take a running start & slide head first down the big slide at the park...this makes momma (& any other mommies nearby) a bit nervous. No fear!
~Has become quite the cuddler with momma. Likes to sit in my lap and watch TV or hold my hand while I'm feeding Lila...so sweet!!!
~Goes to bed between 7 & 8 pm & wakes up each morning between 8 & 8:30. Naptime begins between 11:30 & 12:30 and usually lasts 2-2 1/2 hrs.
~Has started calling out "Momma" when he wakes up in the mornings...what a wonderful way to start the day!
~Loves to shut doors
~His Papa taught him to fall down on the floor and say "Crash"...so fun!
Travis and I are planning on installing the bed rails on his twin bed this weekend. So hopefully, we'll be able to make a smooth transition from the crib to a big boy bed in the near future.
