He is staying awake more now but just isn't content with trying to figure out entertaining himself. We are working on a good schedule and I think that has helped in at night time. He slept 6 hours, going 7 hours between feedings. I was excited because that meant 6 straight hours of sleep for me!
Peyton still loves his little brother. If he doesn't see him in the room he is in he asks where he is and if he can see him.
I can't wait for Christmas! It has been a fun season so far because we have the best gift of all...Cy! Although we have been stuck in the house lately, we have tried to fill our days with fun. We decorated our tree, watched Polar Express (50 times!), had my nephew (Manny) over, one night we even went to Light of the South. Peyton LOVED it! I am amazed at all the work that goes into that place to turn it into a playground of lights. Unfortunately we weren't there long enough to get any pictures, my in-laws are not picture people and I am so maybe next time.
It is very different having a winter baby. Peyton was a May baby and so he was naked most of his days, but Cy has to be bundled up or we just don't leave the house if it is too cold.
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! We are trying to figure out what traditions we want to continue or start now that our family is growing. If you have any suggestions, please leave them.

Today was my first day with no help. Last night Cy went 5 hours between feedings! I guess he knew I would need the rest for today. He sometimes eats 4 oz every 2 hours during the day! This boy can eat, but shows no sign of any chubbiness, if that’s a word. It actually was a pretty quiet day. I was actually able to play a lot with Peyton, which he just eats up!
I can’t believe I am a mom of 2 precious boys. Time has flown by way too fast! I am blessed to have an amazing husband who supports me and loves me for who I am and sons that bring delight to our lives!
For thanksgiving my dad and step mom and my mother and father in law came to our house and brought ALL the yummy food! I didn’t have to do a thing! That’s my kind of entertaining!
Here are some pictures….

Well, Cy came Wednesday at 1039am weighing 7lbs 7oz and 21 inches long! The dr was worried the last few weeks of my pregnancy about how small Cy measuring, well he blew us all away! My belly was smaller with Cy than with Peyton, but Cy was bigger. We had many sweet visitors at the hospital and the care was great!
Waiting to go to the OR

wow...that picture is terrible!
HAHA...that first picture makes me laugh. It looks like I was making P take the picture but I was not holding him against his will. I know the date says months ago but did anyone else ever do this when you were little on a rainy day. It was one of those days that rained ALL day long for a couple of days so we camped out inside. Peyton LOVED it!
We went to Greenwood! Peyton and I took a day trip up to Greenwood, which is only about an hour from here, to visit a sweet friend from college. Peyton instantly bonded with her and I never doubted he would. She has such a sweet loving demeanor. I have really missed seeing her so I was glad we finally found a day to visit. She is living up there while her husband finishes his fellowship/residency whatever that lingo is for med school. I keeping hoping she is going to tell me that when he is done they are moving back to Augusta, but we shall see.
